CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t hold back when discussing President Trump’s ‘travel ban’ with DNC Deputy Keith Ellison Tuesday, unloading on the hypocritical legislator’s deep ties to ‘bigoted’ Louis Farrakhan.
Ellison was attacking the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the revised immigration guidelines when Tapper pointed out the lawmaker’s blatant hypocrisy; saying “You’ve been decrying President Trump’s bigotry; obviously, you used to follow somebody who continually expressed sexist, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-Semitic bigotry, Louis Farrakhan.”
“Going back to the false equivalency, I don’t have any support for what the individual you just mentioned stands for, nor do I agree with Trump’s bigotry either,” Ellison said. “Any time somebody tries to say that something is unfair and bigoted, if you are going to say, ‘Well, one time you sort of said something or somebody said you said something, and then no one can complain about bigotry,” Ellison fired-back.
