CNN contributor and Hillary Clinton supporter Michael Nutter explained on Friday morning what Trump really means when he calls Clinton a “bigot.”

The former Philadelphia mayor noted that when “somebody calls you a bigot, you actually do have to respond to it.”

“It really is more Donald Trump actually talking about himself,” he clarified. “When you actually look up the definition — Merriam-Webster is a pretty good source on that —  he’s actually just talking about himself.”

Nutter explained that it’s Trump’s “lack of tolerance for other people and other people’s views, especially around race and religion … that continue to trip him up.”

“It is difficult,” he continued. “Scottie is really good, and I always appreciate her, but it is really difficult for Trump supporters to ever truly explain what in the world Donald Trump is talking about because it changes so much in a relatively short period of time.”

“It’s really hard for folks to keep up with what he’s talking about, and the reality is he doesn’t know what he is talking about.”
