On Friday’s CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a panel discussion of why most white women voted for Donald Trump that was stacked three to one against conservatives.
Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be “racist” because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from “white supremacy” even while being “oppressed” by white men. Alice Stewart was the exception to the liberal rule.
At 11:27 p.m. Eastern, after Lemon began by asking Powers her view, she recalled: “People will say that they support him for reasons other than his racist language.”
She soon added: “And they’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because I didn’t like Hillary Clinton.’”
The CNN contributor insinuated that everyone who voted for Trump is racist as she continued: “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.”
