Republican Gov. Larry Hogan told CNN that Donald Trump posted a racist comment on his media platform to smear Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin.

CNN host Dana Bash broached the topic the Maryland Gov.

He used a racist comment to lash out at another potential 2024 competitor, your fellow Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin.

He wrote: "Young Kin, separating his last name, now, that's an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn't it? In Virginia, couldn't have one without me."

Your wife and children are Korean Americans. You have made a point of fighting against Asian American hate as governor. What's your reaction to that?

Gov. Hogan agreed.

HOGAN: Well, it was definitely distasteful and inappropriate, not only because I don't think my friend Glenn Youngkin deserve to be attacked like that, but it was also -- I mean, it's Asian hate against a white governor, and making fun of Asians.

And he didn't even have his nationalities, right, because Young Kin would be Korean, as opposed to Chinese. But it's just more of the same from Donald Trump, insults and attacks. And that's one of the reasons why the party is in such bad shape.

"Is it racist?" Bash asked.

"It is racist," Hogan replied.

Hogan didn't sugarcoat it in blaming Donald Trump for the evaporation of Republicans' "Red Wave" during the midterms. Trump has cost the Republican Party the past three election cycles.

"Three strikes, you're out." Larry Hogan lamented.

Trump is trying to energize his MAGA cult by attacking any Republican that he perceives as posing a threat to him in the upcoming 2024 Republican primary.

Unfortunately, the MAGA base responds positively to his racism.
