FS1’s Sharpe: Trump ‘Made It Okay to Be Openly and Blatantly Racist’

During a Thursday debate about Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James saying President Donald Trump has made hate “fashionable again” in America, Shannon Sharpe took it a step further, blaming the president for the Charlottesville protests and saying he has made open and blatant racism okay.

Fox Sports 1 “Undisputed” co-host Skip Bayless said he believes Trump “gave legs” and made it “newsworthy” to hate a certain group of people.

“[W]hat President Trump has done is he made it okay to be openly and blatantly racist,” Sharpe replied. “[H]e made it okay to come from behind those cloaks.”
