Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson denounced President Donald Trump’s supporters and called for them to be “deprogrammed."

During an interview on “Morning Joe,” Robinson asked New York Times writer and "1619 Project” creator Nikole Hannah-Jones how to complete the “process” of deprogramming Trump supporters.

“[T]he difference between the white citizens’ councils and the Klan back in the days of Jim Crow, and you know, Klan was lower-income, white citizens’ councils were the Josh Hawleys and Ted Cruzes of their day."

"But so, here’s the situation, though."

"There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans who somehow need to be deprogrammed," he added.

"It’s as if they are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult, and they have to be deprogrammed," Robinson said.

"Do you have any idea how we start that process, much less complete it?” Robinson asked.

“I don’t. I’m a journalist. I don’t know how we can stop people,” Hannah-Jones replied.

“I know we can look to history, though."

"What ultimately breaks that power structure in the South is enforcement, right?

"There have to be consequences."

"And then once you get those consequences, I think people have to take a second look at their actions.

"And they have to be much more afraid to do the types of kind of violence that we saw last week.”

Last year, CNN host Don Lemon also suggested Trump needed to be re-educated, or as he described it, “deprogrammed."

The anti-Trump host also said supporters were a “cult."

“If I had a real friend, who was involved in a cult, which I feel it is cultish behavior, I must try to help them,” Lemon said at the time.

“And you only go so far until you say, until you reach bottom, I cannot deal with it.

"It’s like an addiction."
