Rick Santorum: Media ‘whitelash’ talk got people ‘worked up’

The media narrative of whites lashing out against other groups as Donald Trump rose to become president-elect is the leading irritant stirring unrest across the U.S., former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum suggested Tuesday evening during a televised forum. Addressing the a spike in hate crimes since Trump was elected on Nov. 8, Santorum called out the media, including the two CNN commentators he was sitting with, for focusing on what he called whitelash. I think frankly, when people like Ana Navarro and Van Jones get up and talk about whitelash and how Donald Trump hates Muslims, and all of the negative things the press is spewing out about what Trump is going to do — that’s got people more worked up than anything else, Santorum said.
