Watch What Happens When CNN Tries To Convince GOP Women That Trump is Racist

CNN Host Randi Kaye was joined by a group of Republican women on Tuesday night during Anderson Cooper's prime time slot.
The host first asked the women if they thought President Trump's tweets targeting certain Democratic congresswomen were racist. All eight women responded by saying "no."
“I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him,” one of the women Sharon Bolan said.
Gina O'Briant, another supporter stated, “I’m glad that the president said what he said because all they are doing is inciting hatred and division. He didn’t say anything about color.”
Kaye was obviously irritated and decided to chime in: “Let me just share with you the definition of ‘racism’ from Merriam Webster dictionary: ‘a belief that race is the primary determinate of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.’”
“Based on that definition, do you not think that what the president has been saying—” Kaye said before being cut off by the women.
“Do you think it’s just a coincidence that these four congresswomen that the president is going after none of them are white?” Kaye asked.
“I don't think it matters,” Peaches McGuire Coates said. “It's idiotic, what they're saying, so it doesn't matter if they're black or white.”
“Why haven’t they befriended one of their white female congresswoman colleagues and let her join the group?” Dena Miller stated. “They don’t like white people. C’mon, they’re racist.”

The women were responding to President Trump's tweets about the Democratic "squad."
"So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run," the President said in a Twitter thread.
"Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came," he continued. "Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"
After being slammed by the media and almost every Democrat in Washington D.C., the President doubled down.
"So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion." he started. "Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, “RACIST.” Their disgusting language and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!"
