Scottie Hughes, a conservative journalist and Trump supporting commentator, has only been a part of CNN since early July.
In an exchange with Wolf Blitzer on Saturday, Hughes made a comment about Hillary’s VP pick that is turning heads.
Blitzer wanted to know what Hughes thought about Tim Kaine speaking Spanish.
This was her reply:
“I appreciate him having multicultural and speaking Spanish. I think that’s a great idea. And we can all bring out our language. Melania could come out and speak her five different languages as well.
But what Mr. Trump did he spoke in a language that all Americans can understand, that is English. And that is one good thing that I thought was a great thing we saw.
I didn’t have to get a translator for anything that was going on at the RNC this week.”
“And I’m hoping that I’m not going to have to kind of start brushing up on my Dora the Explorer to understand some of the speeches given this week.”
In fact, the Dora the Explorer comment was so popular that it trended on Twitter.
And she is getting lit up for it.
Keep in mind CNN is PAYING Scottie Nell Hughes. Don't be shocked if Latinos protest like they did against Lou Dobbs https://t.co/nbskTO0fFL

Dora the Explorer is a cartoon character and still has more class and dignity that the #racist jerk Scottie Nell Hughes.

Scottie Nell Hughes just proving to us all what we already knew. Trump's campaign is filled with nothing but racism and hatred.

Towards the end of her comments, Hughes said, “Let’s take care of our citizens first, let’s make sure they’re going back to work, before we support all these others that might not be contributing to the system.”
