Actor and late-night talk show host D.L. Hughley went after President Trump’s supporters during his show Tuesday, calling them “morally vacant” and claiming that devil worshippers have “higher standards.”

Mr. Hughley, who hosts “The D.L. Hughley Show” on the TV One network, started his rant by saying he would never be friends with someone who supports Mr. Trump.

“You cannot be my friend if you’re that vacant a human being,” the host said, according to a transcript provided by Newsbusters. “It’s so self-centered, I’ve never seen anybody talk about anything other than the economy or anything other than the judges. And really, all he’s about is making sure a certain group of people who are a minority stay in charge.

“They’re the most vacant group of people. We talked about this on the radio. Devil worshippers have a higher standard than he does,” he continued. “You could worship the devil and be a better human being than if you worshiped Donald Trump.

“Look up the tenets of the Church of Satan,” he added, “And then go to a Trump rally and you’ll feel safer around Beelzebub than this dude. I’m telling you.”

Mr. Hughley went on to argue that Mr. Trump is anti-Semitic and racist and so are his supporters for standing by him.

“There’s a difference between not being perfect and being a morally vacant person,” he said.
