CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin takes an insane leap to label Trump racist, and lands flat on his face

Though it isn’t clear where CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin gets his so-called facts, what is without debate is that his network colleagues never call him out on his fiction.

In a most ridiculous statement on Wolf Blitzer’s show Tuesday, Toobin declared President Donald Trump is obviously racist because he called out Antifa. Then, Toobin claimed that the often violent group “is widely perceived as an African American organization.”

The segment on Tuesday’s “The Situation” on CNN was focused on discussing Trump’s recent comments that there could be widespread violence if Republicans lose this in midterm elections this November. Toobin weighed in with his inane take.

“Let’s be clear also about what’s going on here, the theme here is ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’ll protect you from the scary black people,'” Toobin declared. “Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization and this is just part of the same story of LeBron James and Don Lemon and Maxine Waters and the NFL players and the UCLA basketball players.”

Actually, not only does no one think the group is “widely perceived as an African-American organization,” Toobin’s own network had a special report suggesting Antifa is made up mostly of young, white people.

In typical fashion, no one else on the CNN panel called Toobin out for his misrepresented ‘facts.”

Twitter users were happy to school the CNN analyst.
