MSNBC Host Toure Neblett called 2016 Republican candidate Donald Trump’s immigration platform — a hot issue for his supporters — “totally ridiculous” on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Cycle.”
NEBLETT: I read this book to my kids, “The Cat In The Hat.” I think everyone’s read that book. The great line out of that: “It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how.”
And yes the Trump-y thing was fun to make fun of, but when he starts talking about Mexican immigrants, he’s calling them rapists and calling them criminals … I mean, Glenn [Thrush], all of that is totally ridiculous.
The number one reason people come here from Mexico is family reunification. The number two reason is to get a job. These are racist, ugly, stupid comments, and the field should be denouncing them, and yet we have silence.
