During Wednesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel had anything but words for President Trump. Panelist and Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude effectively blamed President Trump for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and a less reported shooting at Kentucky Kroger. Other panelists also expressed their displeasure with the President, labeling him a “white nationalist” and a “threat to American democracy.”
According to Glaude, President Trump “doubled down on what motivated, what radicalized Robert Bowers to go in there and kill those 11 people.” He accused the perpetrator of the Kentucky murders of pulling the trigger in the name of “some ideal of whiteness that Donald Trump represents and spews out of his mouth every single day.” Glaude also described President Trump as a moral monster, which he had already done during an appearance on MSNBC earlier this week.
Glaude then took the conversation in a slightly different direction when he talked about how “what I did wrong in 2016 is I overestimated white people.” Glaude predicted that Delaware County, Ohio and “the suburbs in Pennsylvania” would not vote for a man who was “running around the country appealing to our darker angels, (and) appealing to our hatreds and fears.”
