Keith Boykin, a CNN commentator and former Clinton White House aide, nearly shed tears on television while responding to a recently reported Trump comment.

According to anonymous sources at the G7 Summit, President Donald Trump told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, “Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon.”

Boykin paused for seven seconds, sighed twice, and seemed to be collecting tears in his eyes before responding to the comment.

“This is an unbelievable statement and I can’t even say it’s unbelievable because it’s what you expect from Donald Trump,” Boykin finally said. “Just think about what’s happened this week…he defended Russia, he attacked Canada, he alienated our allies in Europe, he saluted a North Korean general, he praised a communist dictator, he started a trade war with China, his campaign chairman was jailed today, his foundation was sued, and now he’s on record attacking Mexicans.”

“If this happened during any other administration Republicans would demand he be impeached!” Boykin asserted.
