Andrew Yang Offers Scathing Explanation For Donald Trump's Racist 'Kung Flu' Slurs
Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang said Donald Trump's repeated use of the racist term "kung flu" to refer to the coronavirus "is the desperate whirling around of a losing candidate."
Trump uses derogatory and insulting insults to "distract attention from the fact that the government has completely botched and mistreated the coronavirus pandemic," Yang said, who ended the 2020 Democratic nomination race in February, to Anderson Cooper of CNN.
Trump's divisive rhetoric is "like the desperate whirling around of a losing candidate," argued Yang, an Asian American.
Trump revived his kung flu arch during his unattended rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday, and repeated it at an Arizona rally on Tuesday.
"He shows up at a rally that has a small portion of the people projecting it, and I think he's a little desperate," Yang continued.
Trump "only lowers himself and the office of president by reaching for straws that don't really keep him afloat," said Yang, who wished the president could "find a way that doesn't include racist comments that end. " Throwing millions of Americans under a rhetorical bus. "
