Last week, Beto O’Rourke was asked by Jake Tapper about whether he considers those who vote for President Donald Trump to be racist, and he essentially implied that he believes they are.

This week, Tapper posed a similar question to South Bend Mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who furthered the character judgment on those who vote for the president.

Interesting narrative that’s forming…https://t.co/sJWw26Jfwp

Curiously, those who decry racist division politics, by their own words reinforce and amplify the same dynamic. https://t.co/23Oal3LjXD

Democrats running to unseat the president next year should take the rest of the day and read up on what Hillary Clinton calling Trump supporters “deplorables” did for her campaign.
