Ryan Lizza: Trump ‘Has Some Issue With People of Color Who Call Him Out’ – ‘It’s a Race Thing’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” New Yorker Washington correspondent and CNN contributor Ryan Lizza reacted to President Donald Trump’s tweets about LaVar Ball by stating the President has an issue “with people of color who call him out.”

Lizza said, “I don’t even know how to analyze it. I don’t know exactly what he’s saying, but there’s been a lot of commentary from a lot of people who, like you said, dog whistle. There’s some obvious racist overtones here. He just constantly tweets at and attacks African-American, people of color from Twitter. He has some issue with people of color who call him out. It’s just — it is a pattern. I know I’ve said this in the past, and people have said, ‘Oh, well, he calls everyone out. It’s not a race thing.’ I think it’s a race thing.”
