Radio host, author and political commentator D.L. Hughley joined Chris Cuomo on CNN’s New Day to discuss NFL star Colin Kaepernick‘s National Anthem’s protest. Hughley is widely known for his stance on police violence and its effects on the African-American community.
“You’ll see people that will come out and say they’re opposed to what Kaepernick is doing, none of those people come out and say anything when people are being brutalized,” Hughley said.
He also weighs in on Donald Trump’s campaign, comparing the chances of him being in the White House to Hip Hop icon Flava Flav winning a spelling bee. Ouch!
The DL Hughley Radio Show airs daily from 3 PM – 7 PM ET.
