Sen. Sherrod Brown: Most Republicans Privately Admit Trump Is Racist, Misogynistic

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) on Monday said his biggest disappointment during his 13 years in the Senate has been seeing his Republican colleagues continue to embolden President Donald Trump.

“They will not look good in history,” Brown told “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.

“Most Republican senators, when you talk to them individually, quietly, will acknowledge that Trump is a racist,” said Brown. “They’ll acknowledge that Trump is a misogynist, they’ll acknowledge he has trouble telling the truth.”

“They know he doesn’t do his homework,” Brown continued. “They wonder about his relationship with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin because almost all of Trump’s foreign policy actions frankly are good for the Russians, and not always good for us, including withholding aid to Ukraine, including pulling out the troops so that the Turks attack. That was good for Russia, it was good for ISIS, it was good for Iran, but it wasn’t good for the U.S., and it wasn’t good for Israel, clearly.”
