Jay-Z slams Trump’s ‘shithole’ comment as ‘hurtful’.

Cultural icon Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter sat down with Van Jones for the premiere episode of The Van Jones Show airing at 7 p.m. ET tonight on CNN. In the exclusive interview, the two discussed their shared activism and explored the themes of JAY-Z’s most recent album, 4:44.

Below is an excerpt from tonight’s show.

Transcript:

VAN JONES: “We have a President that comes and says every African country is a ‘shithole country,’ how does that land with you as a dad?”

JAY-Z: “It is disappointing and it’s hurtful. It really is hurtful, more than so … everyone feels anger but after the anger, it’s real hurtful.

Because it’s looking down at a whole population of people and it’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people and beautiful everything. This is the leader of the free world speaking like this.

On the other side, this has been going on. This is how people talk, this is how people talk behind closed doors. There was a moment when Donald Sterling had been exposed as a racist on this private phone conversation he was having and they took the team from him. Okay, that is one way to do it. But another way to do it is let him have his team and then lets talk about it together, maybe some penalties.

Because once you do that, all the other closest racists run back in the hole. You haven’t fixed anything. What you’ve done is spray perfume on the trashcan. What you do when you do that is the bugs come and you spray something and you create a super bug. Because you don’t take care of the problem, you don’t take the trash out. You just keep spraying whatever over it to make it acceptable. Then as those things grow, you create a super bug.

And now we have Donald Trump, the super bug … I’m being funny, I say that too. But somewhere along his lineage something happened to him. Something happened to him and he is expressing it in this sort of way.”
