One of the more unexpected guests making the rounds in the “spin room” ahead of the Democratic debate on Tuesday evening was NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley. 

The former NBA star both called out President Trump’s latest inflammatory comments, and doubled down on his past criticism that Democrats have taken black voters for granted.

Barkley also criticized President Trump for recent comments widely derided as racist.
