Say What is the segment of Liberty Nation Radio where we unveil some of the most wacky, astonishing and damnable things uttered by politicians and the chattering class. Here is the latest episode:
Tim Donner: After getting humiliated in the 2016 election, the left, also known as the Resistance, has not done what most parties do when they lose elections, take stock of themselves and figure out what they can do to change things the next time around. No, they have doubled, tripled, quadrupled down on the same strategy that failed two years ago.
And considering all the hatred and venom they have spewed about this president since he was elected, you may think I’m exaggerating when I say they crossed a bright line in recent days, when appropriately enough, a famous movie star and member of the Hollywood leftist elite came out on stage at the Tony Awards and didn’t wait one second before immediately dropping the F-bomb on Trump twice.
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Robert DeNiro.
Robert DeNiro: I’m going to say one thing, f— Trump. It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s f— Trump.
Tim Donner: You tell me. How many normal average Americans are going to keep sitting still for this stuff? But the left doesn’t stop at calling Trump evil, like DeNiro essentially did. What they do when they think Trump might be doing well is question his sanity. That’s always an available go-to, fallback position, and that’s what Trump hater John Harwood of CNBC said after Trump held a press conference following the G7 Summit up in Canada.
John Harwood: I’ll be honest, as a citizen, I’m concerned about the President’s state of mind. He did not look well to me in that press conference. He was not speaking logically or rationally. It sounded as if he was making stuff up…I don’t know what it means, but he did not look well to me.
Tim Donner: So if you can’t beat them at the polls, or stop him from dismantling everything Obama built, just attack his mental stability, the old standby. And then there’s the most familiar standby of all, that Trump is a racist. Here’s Jeffrey Toobin of CNN, of course, on the reason Trump has criticized NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem.
Jeffrey Toobin: By fighting with the NFL players, by fighting with the UCLA basketball players, by his comments in Charlottesville, President Trump gets to fight with black people.
Tim Donner: But calling Trump evil and crazy and racist hasn’t worked. Trump’s approval numbers are rising and have been for weeks. And one comment by a left-wing comedian tells you all you need to know about where the left really is. Listen to Bill Maher, with some lefty guest, admitting things are good, but hoping they go bad.
Bill Maher: This economy is going pretty well. We have to, what? Why was that funny?
Guest: It is going well for now.
Bill Maher: For now, right. Thank you, that’s my question. I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it, because I think one way you get rid of Trump, is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession, or you lose your democracy.
Tim Donner: So what that proves is something we’ve pretty much known all along. The left hates Donald Trump more than they love their country. Think about that. The left hates Donald Trump more than they love their country. And they’ve proven it by doing anything and everything within their power and without to overthrow him by whatever means they can create or which avail themselves. Just how far left can and will the Democrats go? And still convince themselves they’re going to take control of the House in the midterm elections now on the near horizon.
Now, about that supposed blue wave…the Democrats ahead by double digits on the generic ballot as the year began, but the lead now all but evaporated. And at least a couple of reliable big-name leftists are having their doubts. Howard Schultz, founder of Starbucks, said on CNBC that his party has become too extreme.
Howard Schultz: It concerns me that so many voices within the Democratic party are going so far to the left and I ask myself, how are we going to pay for all these things, in terms of things like single payer, or people espousing the fact the government is going to give everyone a job. I don’t think that’s realistic, and I think we’ve got to get away from all of these falsehoods and start talking about the truth and not false promises.
Tim Donner: Again, that’s not some right-winger. That’s the founder of Starbucks. Meanwhile, Chris Matthews, the old-time left-wing pundit on MSNBC, shocked a lot of folks recently when he complained that his Democratic party has been taken over by snobbish, academic elites.
Chris Matthews: They think they’re better than everybody. They went to Yale Law or whatever, whatever they got, they claim they’re better than anybody. A true Democrat, lower case d, thinks they’re no better than anybody else. There’s so much elitism in the Democratic party, it’s so outrageous. It’s all academic, and it’s a game they’ve been playing with themselves and it’s self-saluting. And I’m telling you, the people feel it, there’s a party going on, and they ain’t invited to it.
Tim Donner: And that’s why Donald Trump was elected president.
