CNN Guest Gets Shut Down After Suggesting Obama Would’ve Been Treated as Harshly as Trump for Having Affair

CNN commentator Keith Boykin ripped into Women for Trump PAC co-founder Amy Kremer over her continued defense of President Donald Trump’s moral errors, especially amid news of his alleged love affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

“Thirty percent of Evangelicals in 2016 said they had a problem with a politician with moral failings,” Boykin began. ” … But when Barack Obama was president in 2011, 72 percent of white evangelicals had a problem. So there’s clearly a hypocrisy.”

Kremer rebutted, repeating a number of talking points to argue that Trump “was elected to do a job,” and that American citizens “wanted him to shake things up” because they were “tired of the status quo.”

“We didn’t elect him because we thought he was a preacher or a pastor,” she said.

Kremer’s deflection didn’t sit well with Boykin, who called the response “inappropriate and hypocritical.”

“You defend Donald Trump despite all the p—y grabbing and all the other stuff with the porn stars,” he said. “You defend [former Alabama Sen.] Roy Moore after he was accused of child molestation.”

Boykin recalled the time Kremer appeared as a guest on the network and boldly declared “Barack Obama doesn’t love America,” and suggested her rebuke of the former president was more about the color of his skin than his moral failings.

“What’s the difference between Barack Obama, Roy Moore and Donald Trump? I’ll tell you what the difference is — Barack Obama is a Black man,” he said.

Kremer denied the matter had anything to do with race, saying she believed Obama would have been treated equally as harsh had he engaged in an extramarital affair with a porn star like Trump did.

The remark stunned co-host Erin Burnett, who asked, “You think the treatment would’ve been different with a Black president having an affair with a porn star while his wife is at home with a baby?”

“Are you a hypocrite or a bigot,” Boykin exclaimed. “Which one is it?!”
