CNN’s Brian Stelter: ‘Unmistakeable Racial Component’ to Trump’s Attacks on Athletes (Mediaite)
CNN’s Brian Stelter said this morning that there is an “unmistakeable racial component” of President Trump‘s attacks on athletes last night and into today.
The President criticized NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem last night, and this morning, after hearing that Stephen Curry said he didn’t want to go to the White House, he tweeted that Curry’s invite has been withdrawn.
Stelter made this observation:
“There’s an unmistakeable racial component to this that is uncomfortable to talk about but is obvious.”
