The hapless media elite gathered at some event to try to explain Trump and his voters and they fell flat from sheer arrogance.
Chuck Todd took the stage and made some vicious and unwarranted comments about all Trump voters and this is why the left keeps losing elections.
They refuse to see the reality of today and they refuse to admit their complicity so instead look for scapegoats.
The most recent: Trump voters are stupid and gullible. And worse, we like it that way? This scapegoating may make them feel better but not does change the facts on the ground.
The establishment screwed up – endless wars that destabilized the world, a naive view of China that created a monster that will not go back into the box, encouraging of monopolies that threatens to crash the economy, letting the looters on Wall Street off without even a slap on the wrist…
The list of their failures is endless and Trump’s rise mirrored Obama’s in that no establishment candidate has a chance in modern politics anymore. We know too much.
Obama’s message was the same as Trump’s – the establishment failed and the same swing voters who put Obama in the White House put Trump in the Oval Office yet they never called Obama’s supporters stupid? In other words, Chuck has zero credibility left.
From The Washington Times: Prominent journalists gathered this week to discuss why President Trump sits in the White House and came to the following conclusion: “Gullible” voters and “unfair” coverage — toward Democrat Hillary Clinton — are to blame.
The Recode Decode podcast this week featured NBC’s Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, and Hallie Jackson talking about the state of American politics.
They told host Kara Swisher that Mr. Trump’s campaign tricked the former secretary of state into responding to non-issues while stupid voters took care of the rest on Election Day.
“I knew the gaslighting was out there,” Mr. Todd told the panel Dec. 5 in reference to Mr. Trump’s psychological prowess. “I knew it was every day. But I think there was part of me in my head assumed people were discerning it out, knew the BS from the non-BS.
So, I think what my sort of shock to the system was just sort of how gullible a big chunk of the country was to this and gullible because maybe they want to be gullible.”
