On Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom, host Carol Costello trotted out Muslim-American Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad for an interview filled which allowed Muhammad to attack President-elect Donald Trump, explain why the country shouldn’t unite behind Trump and why white working class voters are foolish to think they’ve been left behind in today’s America.

When asked early in the segment by Costello if it’s “exaggerated” that the country is “intensely divided,” Muhammad pointed to the “significant increase in hate crimes” and “the bigoted rhetoric” as reasons for the partisan atmosphere even though she revealed that she’s not experienced discrimination since the election.
