CNN is looking to its viewers for the answer to why Americans have such a visceral hatred of Trump.
The network has a segment titled “Why is America So Obsessed With Donald Trump?” on the network’s YouTube channel.
“It’s because of his temperament, his personality, his arrogance, his ignorance, his disrespect for the truth,” a narrator says in the video.
“He’s a racist, he’s a sexist, he is a misogynist, he has no business being president of the United States, and he’s doing everything he can to destroy the country.”
The segment is a response to a clip from The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, in which O’Dell describes Trump as a racist who has a “deep-seated hatred of the brown people.”
“You’re going to find that many Americans, if not all, are very disgusted with him,” O’Doherty said.
“I mean, he thinks the brown are all rapists, all murderers, all drug dealers, all pedophiles, all liars, and of course, he also likes to lie about women, about children, about minorities.”
The Last Word segment also focuses on how Trump has been attacking the media and is threatening to put the American military in the middle of a civil war.
“He says, ‘This is the most dangerous time in American history.
I’m going to put America’s military in a war against Russia, with all of its allies and with all the allies,’ ” the narrator says.
“And you’re going, ‘No.
That’s a ridiculous threat.'”
But the real question for CNN viewers is why they are so obsessed.
The video asks viewers to explain why Americans are so angry with Trump.
“Because he says horrible things about people, but when he’s confronted with the facts, they’re totally at fault,” the narrator concludes.
“I mean…he has a deep-seating hatred of Muslims, Mexicans, African Americans, women,” the video continues.
“You know, there’s a huge difference between saying things like, ‘Well, he should be deported, because he’s racist,’ and saying things about Mexicans.”
