New Day host Alisyn Camerota singled out and badgered a black Trump supporter on her show Thursday, for disagreeing that America was racist and it was all Trump’s fault. The liberal journalist sat down with a panel of six lifelong Democrat voters from rust belt states, four of whom voted for President Trump in 2016. Camerota was so eager to get the panel to bash Trump that she hounded one Trump supporter for daring to disagree with the liberal narrative on race relations.
Camerota immediately wanted to know who regretted voting for Trump in 2016. Two of the four said they did. Instead of asking the other voters who still supported him, their thoughts, she turned to a woman who didn’t vote for Trump to get her to bash him as well.
That woman said she had a black teenage son and claimed that President Trump had made the black community, “fearful” because of all the “injustices” around the country. That irritated Darrell Wimbley, who is also black but supports Trump. After Wimbley argued things weren’t as bad as the left makes it, Camerota kept badgering him for saying that, citing liberal organizations who say otherwise:
CAMEROTA: Darrell, why are you shaking your head no?
WIMBLEY: It just amazes me. This is 2019. And the race relations and the way we perceive and the way we say things are happening in this country, I don't see it happening.
CAMEROTA: In terms of statistics there has been an uptick in hate crimes.
WIMBLEY: You can say that but I truly don't believe it because I don't see it. I can statistically say anything but I don’t see it.
CAMEROTA: Well I mean, the people who chart it. For instance, the Anti-Defamation League --
WIMBLEY: I don’t really--think you could call that, the Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, to me those are Democratic institutions that will say and manipulate anything. Racism is not a microaggression. Racism is something painful and hurtful and when we take micro-aggressions and turn it into the country is against black people, we're literally slapping people in the face that went through real racism.
CAMEROTA: And did you see Charlottesville as a microaggression?
WIMBLEY: I saw Charlottesville as two groups of people that came to fight and do something bad.
CAMEROTA: Good people on both sides you saw?
WIMBLEY: I saw two groups of people that came together and fought and both of them were equally wrong.
The other panelists then joined in to bash Wimbley for saying that, with Camerota encouraging them to continue bashing Trump as racist, before moving on to talk immigration.
