[Video] “Meathead” Claims Trump Voters Are Racists


Rob Reiner, who was type cast as “Meathead” in “All in the Family” told the case of Morning Joe that the only reason Donald Trump has won the republican nomination is because those that voted for him are racists.  Both of the Morning Joe  hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski looked at Reiner in disbelief.

 A tense exchange followed:

Co-host Willie Geist challenged Reiner to explain Trump’s success with the millions of people who don’t take their marching orders from the press.

“They listen to what he says for themselves and vote for him. How do you explain that?” Geist asked.

“There are a lot of people who are racist,” Reiner said.

“Oh my God,” Scarborough said. “Did you just say that? You just said that.”

“Well, that’s true,” Reiner said. “Let me finish. They’re not all racist.”

“You led with that, though,” Scarborough shot back.

“I said there are a lot of people who are,” Reiner said. “There’s racism in this country that has been submerged for a long, long time, and all of a sudden there’s a man … He’s unearthed a lot of it.”

Scarborough asked whether this was about a working class in the country that had been left behind as well, and The Princess Bride director noted plenty in that vein were following Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).

“They’re racists,” Brzezinski said sarcastically.

Reiner was known as a far left wacko on the TV show and has been the same in real life.
