Rebecca Traister: GOP Voters ‘Object To’ ‘People of Color and Women,’ GOP Only Turned On Trump When He Went After White Women

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” author and New York Magazine Writer at Large Rebecca Traister stated that people started turning on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “when he started going after white women,” and Republican voters “who object to the people who vote for Democrats, people of color and women, selected a candidate who embodies the racism and sexism that are the very forces that kept people of color and women disenfranchised for centuries, and away from the White House until now.”

Traister said of Trump, “[E]verybody turned on him when he started going after white women, and so the experience of white women being degraded had suddenly been the turning point for so many pundits, so many people in the Republican Party, who finally said enough.”

She added, “Republican voters, who knew they were going to be facing Hillary Clinton, who hate Barack Obama, who object to the people who vote for Democrats, people of color and women, selected a candidate who embodies the racism and sexism that are the very forces that kept people of color and women disenfranchised for centuries, and away from the White House until now. They picked him.”
