Eddie Glaude Jr: ‘I’m Really Doubtful’ Hillary Can Turn out Black Voters

‘How do we keep Trump out of office and at the same time how do we announce that business as usual is no longer acceptable’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
GLAUDE: "So, I wrote online that I would not vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump because I think, like most voters like we’ve been talking about all morning is that there is the need for fundamental change in this country. There’s something that is no longer sustainable at the heart of the country. I don’t think Hillary Clinton represents the kind of leadership that we need. And I definitely think that Donald Trump doesn’t represent the leadership that we need. I’m trying to figure out a way to balance this. How do we keep Trump out of office and at the same time how do we announce that business as usual is no longer acceptable. The African-Americans who voted for her in the primary, we need to make a destipgz between those who voted for her and African-Americans at large. There was just simply a substantive judgment of practical decision that she best represents the possibility that African-Americans might improve. I think as the Sanders campaign developed, more folks became interested. But we have to see if whether or not Hillary Clinton can actually turn out black voters. That’s the big question. Whether or not she can generate the kind of excitement that I think is needed for her to be elected. And I’m really doubtful about that."
