[See NewsBusters for more.] Professor Melina Abdullah joined Brooke Baldwin on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom to discuss President Trump and his response to a Black Lives Matter street painting in New York City outside Trump Tower. Abdullah, who was hailed by Baldwin as one of the original members of BLM, called Trump "the embodiment of white supremacist terrorism" and the "terrorist-in-chief," to which Baldwin meekly informed viewers that Abdullah was just expressing her "freedom of opinion."

For Baldwin, Abdullah's presence on her show was required because Trump tweeted, "Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street."
