MSNBC regressive horde Nicolle Wallace has done a name for herself as a fixed censor of President Donald Trump. But one of her guest outpaced the horde in sincere critique on Tuesday’s show.

Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University Eddie Glaude Jr. seemed on a row and reacted to Trump’s continued use of the “Pocahontas” perjorative against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and story of secular comments.

Glaude first called the boss an “exaggerated denote of the debase that’s at the heart of the country.”


“Those are all dog whistles that we grew up with in the 1980’s, we know accurately what that is,” Glaude pronounced of Trump’s Tuesday insults toward Democratic leadership. “To contend that Doug Jones is soothing on crime in Alabama. He knows accurately what he’s observant to folks in Alabama, [Jones] likes black people.”

“What we need to simply contend is that Donald Trump is a bigot, period,” Glaude said. “He’s a extremist and he’s ruling like a bigot.”
