This evening's episode of the PBS. News hour after all those years of knowing. Him surprised that he would come, down so hard on you similize because. We had a very close, relationship as you stated at the open I've met him in, two thousand and three I was still in my twenties. And I wanted to be like him I grew up in poverty so I thought I.

Fifteen years later I, never would imagine that he has, the president United States would call me a low life well let's, take some, of the charges, you made one by one calling the president racist we know that there have been a number. Of, statements from from, Donald Trump over the years that calling judges Mexicans who were of Mexican heritage. The years that he. Spent challenging President Obama about where he was born those things that you you. Were involved with the president you were working with him near near him close to him during all that time those things didn't bother you enough to to cause you to to separate yourself from that's one of the most dramatic scenes. In unhinged write-off about taking him. To task for the birther movement and he. Just kind of wrote it off, as kind of political hyperbole and he. Said it's par for the, course when you're in politics and I want it to be, clear that in some ways Very complicit by going into this White House and continuing some of those misconceptions in that lie that he. Continued to tell but you believe his explanation I did because I had. A blind spot, where it came to Donald Trump we were very, close and if he said it some ways I believed it Just following up on. That even when when after he was, president the Charlottesville The comment that they're talking about, both sides bear blame you right in the. Book about being troubled by that but. Not enough to do anything about, it you want on television and defended him I was asked by the president you go on television and defend him because there. Weren't many people from the administration that. Would and it was before he clinic both sides could people on both sides it would be a day. Or two later after, that interview that I.
