D.L Hughley: ‘Obama was what we aspire to be, Trump is who we are’

D.L. Hughley has seen what America has declared itself to be with this election, and he doesn’t like it.

“That campaign was based on hate,” Hughley said during a panel discussion on MSNBC. “America saw exactly who it was last night… Exactly who we are.”

“I think Obama was what we aspire to be; Trump and his supporters are who we are,” he added. “People said things, and those polls were so off and that meant that people were not being truthful. They said one thing and they did another.”

“And that to me is the crux. We have to accept who we are in order to evolve.”
