At the top of a Friday night discussion about why many white women support President Donald Trump, CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers declared their preference for Trump over Hillary Clinton means, de facto, they are “racist.” 

Noting how women will say they “just voted” for him because they didn’t like Clinton, Powers asserted “that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So I just want to establish that.”

Powers on the Friday, November 16 CNN Tonight with Don Lemon:

“People will say that they support him for reasons other than his racist language, which we don’t have time to go through, but there’s all sorts of things, starting from the launch of his campaign all the way up until the latest campaign, the way he demonized people trying to come to our country on the caravan. And they’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because, you know, I didn’t like Hillary Clinton.’ And I just want to say that’s not -- that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So I just want to establish that.”
