Chris Matthews Calls Trump Supporters ‘Dogs’ (Washington Free Beacon)
MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on his show "Hardball" on Wednesday that some of President Donald Trump's supporters were "dogs," and, along with the panel, suggested that Trump's idea of America excluded people of color.
Former talk show host Montel Williams criticized Trump for not responding strongly enough to anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S., adding that "25 percent" of Trump's supporters agreed with his "nasty rhetoric."
"So the dog whistle was heard by the dogs," Matthews said, in an apparent reference to Trump's aforementioned supporters.
"Yeah, and the campaign is all about protecting America," Williams said.
