Black Panelists Beat Down Trump Supporter’s Claim That He’s ‘On the Cutting Edge of Civil Rights’

Anderson Cooper got together quite the panel to talk about Donald Trump‘s appeals to black voters this week.

Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany was on hand to back up her candidate’s claims that his presidency would be great for black people. She started off by telling Bakari Sellers, “You might think a 27.2% poverty rate among African American individuals … is a good thing but –”

“Kayleigh, when did you hear us say that?” interrupted an exasperated-sounding Angela Rye. “That’s not fair. Kayleigh, can you retract that? Kayleigh? That’s not fair.”

McEnany kept trucking along, ignoring Rye’s interjections of, “Kayleigh!” Instead, she claimed that Trump was positive in his appeals to voters of color and, in fact, “was on the cutting edge of civil rights” because he allowed black and Jewish people into his club in Florida. McEnany said he even brought a suit against other club owners who didn’t allow minorities into their clubs, but Rye reminded her that happened after he was sued for housing discrimination.
