CNN political commentator Scottie Nell Hughes is facing the wrath of Twitter users for criticizing presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine's bilingual address.
Apparently, Hughes was not happy that Kaine used English and Spanish to deliver his speech in Miami, suggesting that Spanish speakers are un-American. It is not surprising that she is a Donald Trump supporter, given her white-supremacist attitude.
“What Mr. Trump did, he spoke in a language all Americans can understand — that is English,” Hughes told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
“I didn’t have to get a translator for anything that was going on at the [Republican National Convention] this week,” she continued.
Hughes then took things to a whole new level, with an unnecessary reference to the immensely popular animated TV series.
“I’m hoping I’m not going to have to start brushing up on my ‘Dora the Explorer’ to understand some of the speeches given this week.”
Apparently, Hughes thought it was all right to draw a comparison between a cartoon character and the presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee of the United States.
The U.S. is the second largest Spanish speaking country, and therefore the reason Kaine chose to speak in two languages is absolutely understandable.
Twitter users were obviously furious about her ignorant comments.
I'm so angry this racist on CNN had the nerve to call Latinos speaking Spanish Dora the explorer— Victoria Saav (@victoriaesaav) July 23, 2016
@CNN Please get that racist Becky who referred to the Spanish language as "Dora the explorer" off the air. Makes me sick.— ? Kalliope Prera ? (@_austrogrecian_) July 23, 2016
excuse me @CNN, why do you have an "analyst" on air who just referred to translating Spanish as "brushing up on Dora The Explorer"...???— Shannon Ho (@ShanMHo) July 23, 2016
Hughes later used the same social media platform to apologize to all those she had offended.
I never meant 2 cause hurt rather attempt 2 reference a cute tool I learned/taught Spanish 2 my own children obviously failed. I was wrong— Scottie Nell Hughes (@scottienhughes) July 23, 2016
She has once again proved that Trump’s supporters are just like him: racist, bigoted hate mongers.
