Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University Eddie Glaude Jr. appeared on a panel and reacted to Trump’s continued use of the ‘Pocahontas’ perjorative against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and history of racial comments.
Glaude first called the president an ‘exaggerated indication of the rot that’s at the heart of the country’.
‘Those are all dog whistles that I grew up with in the 1980’s – we know exactly what that is’ Glaude said of Trump’s Tuesday insults toward Democratic leadership.
‘To say that Doug Jones is soft on crime in Alabama.
He knows exactly what he’s saying to folks in Alabama – [Jones] likes black people’.
‘What we need to simply say is that Donald Trump is a bigot – period’ Glaude said.
‘He’s a bigot and he’s governing like a bigot’.
