Former Arizona governor Jan Brewer tussled with panelists Sunday on CNN’s "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper over political claims of racism and bigotry.
Brewer — who supports Donald Trump — said she was tired of having Democrats call her and other Republicans “racist” for their support of the GOP candidate.
“With President Obama and Hillary Clinton, every time you disagree with them, it doesn’t matter which subject it is, you’re a bigot or you’re a racist,” said Brewer.
“Dang it, I get fed up that we hear over and over and over again from the president of the United States that every time somebody wants to support the Constitution and the rule of law that we are out there because we are racists and bigots,” Brewer said.
Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, who was seated next to her, eventually told Brewer, “I can’t believe you’re supporting Donald Trump.”
“Donald Trump is a bigot. Donald Trump is a racist. Donald Trump in fact is making fascist appeals,” said O’Malley, who ran in the Democratic primary and is now backing Hillary Clinton.
