CNN continues to show its true colours. Panelist Symone Sanders started blaming Donald Trump for the four thugs who kidnapped and tortured a white man on Facebook live.
The African-American thugs made their victim say “F*ck Trump” and “f*ck white people” while he was held for 24-48 hours. The 18-year-old mentally disabled victim was cut, tortured and forced to drink toilet water.
“I just want to remind folks that we cannot sit here and ignore that, at least for the last year, on very public display, the worst parts of America have been brought from the fringe into the mainstream,” Sanders said.
“We’ve talked about white nationalists and white supremacists and the KKK, but there also, when this inflammatory rhetoric is out there, when someone is repeatedly telling you that your community is the worst of the worst, it brings out the worst of the worst in people,” she added.

She also claimed that this was not a hate crime. “Hate crimes are because of a person’s racial ethnicity, their religion, their gender, a disability, it isn’t your political leanings, because someone doesn’t like you’re political leanings and they do something bad to you, that is not a hate crime,” she insisted.

When another panelist said this incident stems from the breakdown of the American family Sanders interjected saying, “I am very hesitant to cast these young people as folks who come from broken homes. For all we know they have a mother and a father who work very good hard working jobs and tried to instill good moral values in them and the young people just aren't listening...”
She went on to add that the four thugs are the ones who “need help” and an “elevated conversation” should be had about the things President-elect Donald Trump has said.
