D.L. Hughley: Trump’s popularity is tied to his racism — ‘If he said n****r he’d be elected tomorrow’

“I think the more racist stuff Trump says, the better he does in the polls,” the comedian said. “If he said n****r, he’d be elected tomorrow. Anybody that takes Trump — Trump being president is like Flavor Flav winning a spelling bee. I just don’t know how they take that seriously.”


“I think he’s turned the whole thing into a reality show,” Hughley explained. “How sorry are the other people running if Donald Trump is their best choice? How bad can your self-esteem be hurt when you’re getting your ass beat by Donald Trump in a political event.”


Tom Boggioni is based in the quaint seaside community of Pacific Beach in less quaint San Diego. He writes about politics, media, culture, and other annoyances. Mostly he spends his days at the beach gazing at the horizon waiting for the end of the world, or the sun to go down. Whichever comes first.


Stopped by a photographer from TMZ at LAX, comedian and actor D.L. Hughley had a few things to say about GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, including how his popularity can be directly attributed to his racism.
