A CNN panel blasted Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley because the two 2024 presidential candidates denied that “systemic racism” exists.
The liberal news team from “CNN Tnis Morning” talked about Scott and Haley firing back at former President Barack Obama after Obama took a swipe at them for not being “serious about addressing systemic racism.”
Haley tweeted, “[Barack Obama] set minorities back by singling them out as victims instead of empowering them. In America, hard work & personal responsibility matter. My parents didn’t raise me to think that I would forever be a victim. They raised me to know that I was responsible for my success.”
And Scott said Obama “missed” an opportunity to “unite the country,” and he repeated what he’s been saying, that the “truth” of his life “disproves the lies of the radical Left.”
One of the panelist, LZ Granderson, said: “And what’s even more unfortunate is when you look at that tweet from Governor Haley, I mean Ambassador Haley, the pronoun ‘them,’ distancing herself from minorities, despite being a racial minority herself, reveals a lot more about her understanding of how she factors into race in this country more so than Obama’s impact on minorities or how minorities view themselves in general.”
And Scott said as a guest on “The View, “One of the reasons why I’m on the show is because of the comments that were made frankly on this show that the only way for a young African American kid to be successful in this country is to be the exception and not the rule,” Scott said.
“That is a dangerous, offensive, disgusting message to send to our young people today, that the only way to succeed is by being the exception,” he added.
CNN panel claims Republicans like Amb. Nikki Haley and Sen. Tim Scott have betrayed their races and genders.
