In a recent interview with the ever-controversial Donald Trump, CNN's Don Lemon asked the Republican presidential candidate if he believes he is homophobic and racist.
"If I ask you this question, will you answer directly?" Lemon prefaced his question. "Do you think that you are homophobic?"
"No," he responded. "I think that I'm a very nice person. I love people."
As proof of his likability among his supporters, Trump talked about how evangelical Christians adore him. "You know who loves me? The tea party. The evangelicals. You know, I'm leading with evangelicals," he added. "I love them. They love me."
Ever since he announced his candidacy for the White House, Trump has been unstoppable in terms of hurting sentiments of minority groups in the United States – and that’s not even the worst part. Whenever he is criticized for spewing vitriol, the media mogul unabashedly doubles down on his insults.
Despite proving on more than one occasion how incredibly racist, sexist, homophobic and insensitive to xenophobia he can be, it’s amazing how there are people in this world like Lemon who still wonder if Trump is really as offensive as he appears to be.
