You have to hand it to the Left: they're relentless. As conservative pundit Michael Walsh is fond of saying, they never stop, they never sleep, they never quit. And what they never stop doing is demonizing President Trump and the Right as knuckle-dragging racists.
Monday on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, fill-in host Don Lemon asked American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan about Trump's low approval rating, setting her up to smear Trump and his supporters as stupid reactionaries.
"April, let’s talk about the president’s approval rating," said Lemon. "He’s at the lowest point overall. Just 36% say that they approve the way Trump is handling his job as president. How does the White House explain those low poll numbers which have been consistent throughout his presidency?
Biased media translation: Nobody likes Trump, so let's impeach him already.
"This president is trying to find his way out," Ryan replied. "And he’s doubling down with his base. And when it comes time to talk to his base, to galvanize them, he hits with topics that really resonate with them: the Confederacy, issues of race, the NFL with taking a knee or be it [sic] Charlottesville."
Actually, it's the Left that created and obsesses over all those issues, because it's the Left that hates this country and is waging a culture war.
"This president knows what strikes the chord of the 'forgotten man,'" Ryan continued, referring to all those deplorables who cling to their guns and religion, "the uneducated or those who have not attended college, white male who feels that they’re on the fringe and not touched by any form of government. And this president has reached out to them. So his numbers are low, but he keeps doubling down."
What insulting nonsense, particularly from a woman so inarticulate (watch the whole video clip to hear her grammatically mangle sentence after sentence) that she has no right to be calling anyone uneducated. This is just typical of the Left's elitist, open contempt for more than half the country. It's the very reason Trump is in the White House, and yet, to paraphrase April Ryan, they just keep doubling down.
