WATCH: Ali Velshi Goes Off-Script On Trump's Use Of 'Snake' At CPAC

Trump decided to use that stupid poem regarding the snake today at CPAC. Ali Velshi has had it.

So President Stupid hauled out an old favorite at CPAC this morning:

And Ali Velshi has had it with Trump's hypocritical racism:


STEPHANIE RUHLE: The president took the time of the country... a week ago, teenagers were massacred. He took, what was it, five or seven minutes to tell the story of a snake.

ALI VELSHI: The snake, by the way, is the immigrant. For those of you who didn't think being called coming from a shithole country was not bad enough. I am an immigrant, and I was happy for you to take me into a silk bosom or whatever it was. It's nonsense. That kind of talk about immigration is offensive nonsense. I'm not saying that as a journalist and MSNBC employee. I'm saying it as an immigrant, who is a citizen of America. It is offensive nonsense.

RUHLE: President Trump, whose ancestors are immigrants, whose current wife is an immigrant, whose first wife is an immigrant.

VELSHI: ...Whose current wife's parents are benefitting from the so-called "chain migration." it's just ludicrous stuff.
