VIDEO: Pro-Trump CNN pundit slams ‘shameful’ colleague


CNN commentator Steve Cortes had a fiery clash both on television and online with a CNN colleague who also writes for The New York Times, slamming Wajahat Ali as “shameful” for suggesting to the pro-Trump pundit that “no matter how hard you try to be the Latin face of Trump, they’ll never love you.”

“Tonight, my CNN colleague @WajahatAli resorted to the most racist and condescending insult I’ve ever heard, telling me ‘they will never love you.’ As if I’m some brown fool earnestly trying to earn the favor of white Trump supporters,” Cortes tweeted following the TV segment. “Shameful.”

The article goes on to state the following:

It started when Cortes, a former campaign adviser for Trump who is now one of the struggling CNN’s lone Trump-supporting contributors, reiterated his previous criticisms of the president’s controversial tweets that targeted four congresswomen of color, which he called “illogical” and “divisive.” But Cortes rejected host Anderson Cooper’s declaration that the president is a “demagogue.”

Ali responded, “But was it more racist and condescending than Trump telling 4 US Congresswomen to go back to their countries, Steve? More racist than saying black and brown immigrants come from sh*thole countries? More racist than saying Jews fund a caravan of alien invaders? Be best.”

Cortes hit back, tweeting, “Unlike you, @WajahatAli, I don’t view all politics through the prism of race. I oppose the radical ideas of those Congresswomen, not their race. I similarly reject your bigotry toward the millions in our movement, and not your ethnicity.”
