A Fox News host asserted on Thursday that Democrats may be "racist" because they have called out President Donald Trump for making racist statements, slurs and policies on many occasions.

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt spoke to Fox host and legal analyst Bob Massi on Thursday in a segment complaining about several Democrats who are boycotting Trump's State of the Union Address to protest racial slurs that were reportedly used by the president to describe Africa.

"Is this a political statement or are these people also as they call the president a racist, are they potentially racist against him?" Massi opined. "Somebody has to address that issue because there is a fine line between a political statement and are they being racist against the president of the United States."

Massi also said that lawmakers who are wearing black to honor sexual harassment victims were participating "in a direct slap against Trump."

"We know that because of the allegations from years ago and the things that they are playing up," the Fox News host remarked. "We know they are going to play on the sexual harassment issues. 'Why is it that other people are gone but the president has sexual allegations against him?'"

"And what really bothers me most as a citizen, is what it sends to the rest of the world," he added. "The platform, they have no concern about the embarrassment it brings to our president. And that, to me, is a poor commentary. And actually for me, it makes me sick at my stomach. I can't stand it."
