Kirsten Powers of CNN thinks all Trump voters are racists. Does that include the people who voted for Obama then switched to Trump? It doesn’t sound like she has thought this through very well.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
CNN’s Powers: All Trump Supporters Are Racist
CNN political commentator Kirsten Powers said Friday that because President Donald Trump does and says racist things, all who support him are racist as well.
Speaking with the chyron “Why Trump Resonates With White Women” below her on “CNN Tonight” with Don Lemon, Powers said Trump’s racist rhetoric from his campaign to the present was too vast to summarize as she assessed white women who support the president.
“They’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because, you know, I didn’t like Hillary Clinton,'” the former Clinton administration official said. “And I just want to say that’s not—that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So, I just want to establish that.
“As for why white women do it, I think we have to recognize that white men are doing it as well, but I think sometimes we would hope that we would get better behavior from white women, because white women are themselves oppressed and that they would, therefore, be able to be aligned themselves with other oppressed people,”

Is Kirsten just mad that Hillary lost? That’s what this sounds like.
