Condoleezza Rice Shuts Down Reporter For Suggesting Race Relations Are Worse Under Trump (VIDEO)

Condoleezza Rice recently did an interview with NBC News and the reporter tried to goad her into saying race relations are worse under Trump.

Rice was having none of it and shut the narrative down faster than you can say media bias.

Condoleezza Rice dismisses NBC reporter’s claim that racism is worse under Trump: ‘Sure doesn’t feel worse’

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made it clear that she doesn’t think racism in America has gotten “worse” under President Trump, calling the claim “hyperbole” on Thursday during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show.

NBC News’ Sheinelle Jones told Rice “there are people who will say it feels worse now when we’re talking about race” and said others feel that America is currently a “divisive environment.”

Rice quickly responded, “It sure doesn’t feel worse than when I grew up in Jim Crow Alabama. So let’s drop this notion that we’re worse race relations today than we were in the past.”

“I think the hyperbole about how much worse it is isn’t doing us any good,” Rice continued. “This country’s never going to be colorblind. We had the initial original sin of slavery. It’s still with us.”

“Oh, come on, alright. I would be the first to say we need to watch our language about race,” Rice said. “We need to watch that we don’t use dog whistles to people… but when we start saying, ‘Oh, you know, it’s worse today,’ no, they’re not.”
