‘He’s a lion on the loose; and if you poke him, you know, you’re going to be in trouble’

CNN’s Henderson: GOP ‘Race Baiting’ Created Trump (NewsBusters)

On Sunday’s Inside Politics, CNN political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson argued that Donald Trump’s controversial remarks surrounding Mexican immigrants were a problem of the GOP’s “own making.”

The former Washington Post reporter sounded like a Democratic strategist when she told the CNN panel “a lot of the sort of politics around race, and sort of race baiting have defined the Republican Party for quite some time.”

Earlier in the segment, host John King promoted how “Hillary Clinton sees a golden opportunity” regarding Trump’s immigration statements. Jackie Kucinich of the Daily Beast responded that the GOP was in “danger” having Trump on the debate stage “because he’s going to say something inflammatory and they're going to have to react.”
