Hillary Confronted on "Super Predator" Term on Black Radio Show; Calls Trump "Dangerous," "Cancer"


Hillary Clinton phones in on WWPR-FM's "The Breakfast Club," a popular black radio show on 105.1 FM in New York City. The Democratic presidential frontrunner was grilled on her use of the term "Super Predator" in the 1990s. She also used the radio interview as an opportunity to hit Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. She called him "dangerous" and said he makes her "cringe."

Confronted on the term "Super Predator," Clinton conceded it was a poor choice of words.

"Well, first of all, you know, I have said that I should not have used that word. You know, I was talking about drug gangs and traffickers and cartels, but it was a poor choice of words," Clinton told the hosts.

"He does scare me because what he’s saying that he would do is wrong for our country," Clinton warned. "It's not only offensive to people and kind of makes you cringe. It's dangerous."

"He's setting people against each other, he’s inciting violence, and what he’s doing... basically in so many ways play to the worst instincts of people is just in violation of American values and New York values for sure," Clinton added.

Clinton called Trump a "cancer" and said "everybody needs to be going after him" before we asked what has happened to our country.

"You don't let the cancer grow bigger and bigger and bigger and then all of a sudden we wake up and we say, 'What the heck has happened to our country?' Everybody needs to be going after him," Clinton told the morning show group.

Clinton also revealed to the predominately black listeners that she carries hot sauces in her purse, like Beyonce.

"No, seriously, I’ve been eating a lot of hot sauce," Clinton said. "Raw peppers and hot sauce. I’m having a rebellion against it because I think it keeps my immune system strong. I really do. I think hot sauce is good for you."
