CHARLES PAYNE: What's your main opposition to Donald Trump having some fun on Saturday Night Live, on a Saturday night?

REP. XAVIER BECERRA (D-CA): Charles, I think you'd agree that there's nothing funny about racists,and Donald Trump apparently doesn't know how tocontrol some of his words. And it's unfortunate because he is impacting of lives of a lot of folks by what he says.

CHARLES PAYNE: Well, how -- when you say racism, I mean, you know it's interesting because I would suspect you believe Donald Trump throws things out there, throws words out there, but then you can throw a word out there like racism which -- it's a very deep, deep painful word. What's your proof or evidence that Donald Trump is a racist?

XAVIER BECERRA: I've never raped a woman, I am not here to just take advantage of the country. The words that he has used to describe people, and he's used specific words to describe immigrants and in particular Mexican immigrants and when you use that kind of a word, and you can't justify it by giving clear examples of what you meant in terms of rapists, I think that's clearly beyond pale. And for me it's racist.

CHARLES PAYNE: And since then -- Okay, I get where you're coming from in the sense that the initial shock a lot of people interpreted that way. But I think Donald Trump has gone to a certain degree, to a certain length to say, hey, we're talking about these countries, by the way, not just Mexico but a lot of countries south of the border sending their worst people, allowing their worst people to escape to this country, they're not good people for the most part, if they're letting them go, if they allow them to go through, many of them happen to be criminals. Many of them happen to be rapists, I don't think that he thinks that all Mexican men are rapists, is that the position that you're taking?

XAVIER BECERRA: His word speak for themselves and as the son of immigrants I take offense when someone uses racist remarks like that. (emphasis added)
