Donna Brazile: "Trump Is Amplifying Everything That We've Heard On Talk Radio For The Last 8 years" [View all]

DONNA BRAZILE: Donald Trump is amplifying everything that we've heard on talk radio for the last eight years, Matt, you know that. There's not one AM channel, whether I'm home in the South or riding up into the Northeast, they've been saying this kind of dog whistle, you know, everybody is the problem and people have not taken responsibility. I denounce Donald Trump for not denouncing the kind of vitriol, the kind of violence that he has perpetrated with his angry rhetoric. And he knows exactly what he's doing. This is not the Donald Trump who denounced David Duke in 1991. This is a guy who is now soaking up this hate and he's spilling it back out.
