Leave it to D.L. Hughley to bring an unchained opinion on Donald Trump.
Chatting with TMZ, the funnyman mentioned Trump’s appeal to the U.S.’ racist block of voters as he weighed in on whether the GOP would try to keep a lid on the business mogul during the first official debate between those gunning for the Republication presidential nomination on Thursday.
In Hughley’s eyes, it is that particular group of voters who are responsible for Trump being the frontrunner in the Republican Party’s race to the presidency.
“I think the more racist stuff Trump says, the better he does in the polls,” the entertainer told TMZ. “If he said n*gger, he’d be elected tomorrow. Anybody that takes Trump — Trump being president is like Flavor Flav winning a spelling bee. I just don’t know how they take that seriously.”
“I think he’s turned the whole thing into a reality show,” Hughley added about how Trump’s opponents are coping with trailing the “Celebrity Apprentice” fixture. “How sorry are the other people running if Donald Trump is their best choice? How bad can your self-esteem be hurt when you’re getting your ass beat by Donald Trump in a political event?”
