The BBC’s Naga Munchetty called out Donald Trump over his racist ‘go back’ tweets and people love her for it

BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty went viral today when she called out Donald Trump’s racist ‘go back’ tweets and anyone else who tells people of colour to ‘go home’.

‘Everytime I’ve been told as a woman of colour to “go home”, to “go back to where I’ve come from,” that was embedded in racism.

‘Now I’m not accusing anyone of anything here but you know what certain phrases mean.’

Asked if she’s told that by co-host Dan Walker, Naga said:

‘Yes. Not regularly but I’ve been told it. [It makes me] furious. Absolutely furious and I can imagine lots of people in this country will be feeling absolutely furious a man in that position think it’s okay to skirt the lines by using language like that.’

And here’s just a little bit of what people had to say in response.

And just in case you missed the so-called President’s tweets, this is what he had to say.

Trump has since said he hasn’t got a racist bone in his body. Just a racist brain.


Richard Ashcroft was painfully funny on BBC Breakfast – or maybe just painful
