The Daily Beast reports:
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on Sunday that President Donald Trump was “toying with everybody” when he attacked Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg as “racist” over his previous support of stop and frisk, a policy Trump himself has long endorsed.
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Conway about Trump’s since-deleted tweet calling the former New York City mayor a “total racist” over inflammatory remarks Bloomberg made in 2015 defending the policy.
Conway responded: “The president is toying with everybody by saying, had he said something like that everyone would say ‘racist, racist, racist.’”
