MSNBC is in panic mode.
The far-left network is doing everything it can to undermine Donald Trump.
And MSNBC just said something truly disgusting about Trump voters.
Liberals have a terrible problem with facing reality.
Whenever their ideas fail, it was simply because enough time or money wasn’t dedicated to the project, or conservatives somehow sabotaged the project.
When voters don’t get on board with their policy prescriptions, it’s because they’re morally deficient somehow, or they’re just too dumb to understand them.
That’s precisely what MSNBC said about Trump voters during one of their promotions for the sham impeachment proceedings they’ve been marketing like “Citizen Kane.”
In an advertisement for the overwrought spectacle, host Chris Matthews said of Trump voters:
“To the non-attentive voter — I think Trump always loves the low information guy, the Dancing with the Stars who cares more about Harry and Meghan or about Brad and Jennifer. And there are a lot more people, by the way, watch the other channels — They care about those topics. It works!”
First, Matthews’s tactic of insulting half the electorate was precisely what got Hillary Clinton in trouble during the 2016 campaign when she called Trump voters a “basket of deplorables.”
Clinton’s and Matthews’s comments are perfect examples of the sneering elite you see among Democrat politicians and their media allies.
This is a terrible strategy for winning hearts and minds and swaying independent voters.
Second, unbeknownst to him, in his attempt to slander Trump voters, Matthews summed up well Democrat voters.
Liberals are the ones who were furious that former press secretary Sean Spicer appeared on “Dancing with the Stars.”
There were campaigns to get him booted off the show.
And it’s liberals who have the deep fascination with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Also, a recent survey showed that Democrat voters were actually less knowledgeable than Republican voters.
That’s not surprising because Democrats imbibe propaganda all day long and never engage with conservative arguments.
Meanwhile, Republicans are inundated with liberal messaging everywhere they turn.
For that reason, Republicans know Democrat arguments better than vice versa.
MSNBC’s attack on Trump voters reeks of desperation.
They’re trying to make the idea of voting for Trump as toxic as possible by insulting anyone who even considers it.
However, big media has lost a considerable amount of its power.
The media-anointed candidates have been flailing since the 2016 election.
The establishment candidates went completely bust, and the media darlings of the 2020 campaign have receded or dropped out altogether.
As the Democratic primary heats up and the general election nears, expect more slander directed at Trump voters.
Liberals haven’t learned that insulting voters is a bad strategy, but they just can’t help themselves.
As Trump’s approval ratings slowly tick up, Democrats could learn that lesson the hard way.
Then again, they’re not good at learning lessons from the past.
