CNN analyst desperate to inject race into Trump indictment: ‘Doesn’t deal with black women very well’

Race was injected into the conversation around former President Donald Trump’s latest indictment as one CNN analyst argued he “doesn’t deal with black women very well.”

If corporate media is endeavoring to portray Trump’s Georgia indictment as a nonpartisan application of the justice system, analyst Bakari Sellers appeared to miss the mark. On top of racially charged accusations against the president, the former Democratic South Carolina state representative may have inadvertently made the argument for why Fulton County, Georgia is the wrong venue to try Trump.

Appearing on CNN Tuesday, Sellers was asked by Kate Bolduan whether the indictment alleging a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 presidential election was more a danger to Trump legally or politically, if at all.

“I think it’s more danger for Donald Trump,” he began. “There are a few reasons why.”

To that end, he noted a couple of journalists as examples before pointing to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis as he said, “Donald Trump doesn’t deal with black women very well. I’ve mentioned that a few times over on the network. You know, he’s had trouble with Yamiche [Alcindor], he’s had trouble with our own Abby Phillip, and now he’s going up against Fani.”

“And I think that the way that she has postured herself and shown that she is not going to back down from him, and shown that this isn’t a partisan battle, this is a fight of right and wrong and accountability, is something that Donald Trump’s probably not gonna take very well,” he continued.

As previously reported, the president’s former chief of staff and co-defendant Mark Meadows already filed a motion to have the case against him moved to a federal court because he was working as a federal official at the time of the alleged conspiracy. Trump is expected to file his own motion to move the case, and Sellers’ broader argument supported that.

“This is truly a granular complaint that they spent months putting together and you can see the effort and time that they used in putting this together. Also, it’s a jury pool that he is not going to be very fond of,” the analyst said. “It’s a Fulton County jury pool. I don’t think he’s going to have any issues with fairness, but he is going to go in and have to deal with a jury pool of his peers in Georgia.”

Immediately, Sellers seemed to contradict his statement on “fairness” by adding “And he does not want to be in Atlanta, I can tell you that much.”

Similar concerns had been voiced in the Washington, D.C. and New York City indictments of Trump where the districts had overwhelmingly voted against him during his presidential elections. The president’s record shows no proof of his not dealing well with black women, but rather his being at odds with leftists and the “fake news.”

One need look no further than Trump’s remarks announcing the passing of Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway, better known as “Diamond” of Diamond and Silk, earlier this year.

“Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina,” the president wrote on Truth Social. “Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing. There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out.”

Supporters on social media called out where they saw the real bias.
