It’s one thing to thoughtfully and tactfully challenge your fellow Americans on their political beliefs, but insulting them is something else entirely.
In fact, we should be having difficult discussions with one another over the future of our nation. This is the very reason that the Founding Fathers made the First Amendment, well, the first of the amendments.

Hughley, along with his co-host Jasmine Sanders and panelist Jay Phillips, went back and forth, debating Trump’s purported moral vacancy and taking shots at his supporters.
“You can’t be a little pregnant and you can’t be a little Trump supporter,” D.L. Hughley said, before calling the president’s supporters the “most vacant group of people” and insisting that devil worshippers “have a higher standard than he [Trump] does.”
“Devil worshipers. You couldn’t be a pedophile, you can’t speak bad about people, you can’t take things from people– like, you could worship the devil and be a better human being than if you worshiped Donald Trump,” Hughley continued. “Like honestly, I’m not even just– look up the tenets of the church of Satan.”
Hughley didn’t stop there.
Hughley took his criticism of Trump backers a step further, adding that someone could visit a satanic temple and “feel safer around Beelzebub” than around Trump at one of his rallies.
“Look up the tenets of the Church of Satan — I don’t know why I know this but the Church of Satan – and then go to a Trump rally and you’ll feel safer around Beelzebub than this dude,” he continued. “I’m telling you.”
