MSNBC host Tamron Hall's attempt to smear Donald Trump supporters as a bunch of racists just backfired hilariously.

While discussing white nationalist David Duke's support for Donald Trump with leftist Mother Jones bureau chief David Corn, Hall was told she had a clip of "the new people" Donald Trump is "bringing into the fold," strongly implying they'd be racists.

"One of our reporters, Dave Gutierrez, actually Jacob, I don't want to quote the wrong reporter here, was just out of the Trump campaign," she said.

"I think we have the sound, my team will have to tell me, where they spoke to some Trump supporters, let's play what they said."

Rather than cut to some racist KKK supporter, the control room cut to a clip featuring a black Trump supporter named Frank Vick who praised Trump and attacked the media for trying to divide Americans based on race, describing exactly what Hall and her guest Corn were just doing.

"David Duke and people like that, they come out from under the rocks all the time around this time this year," Vick said.

"It's got nothing to do with Donald Trump, we're all Americans."

"I think we need to stop with all the racist stuff and the race baiting, like me and my friend right here [camera pans out to reveal an older white gentlemen with a beard], we just met today and we was talking, you know, we got to stop with the racist stuff, this and that, we're all Americans."

MSNBC then cuts back to a visibly shaken Tamron Hall who starts to stumble all over her words.

"Um, clearly, let me just be clear here," she says.

"Obviously, the majority of Donald Trump supporters are not African-American, I don't know how many African-Americans were in that building, but that is one person, that uh, we have chosen to cut that sound from."

"...Uh, David?"

Her guest David Corn responds by choosing to ignore everything which just took place and instead accuses Trump of "riling up all sorts of bigotry and hatred."

Yeah, David. It's Trump who is "riling up the bigotry and hatred," not those of you in the media.
