Feminist icon Camille Paglia did not vote for Donald Trump. In fact, she voted for Jill Stein. However, she believes Trump will win re-election in 2020 due to the fact that Americans will cast their votes against the media.
"Democrats are doing this in collusion with the media obviously, because they just want to create chaos," she said, commenting on the media coverage of the firing of FBI director James Comey. "They want to completely obliterate any sense that the Trump administration is making any progress on anything."
She went on to explain that the first days of administrations are often rife with political drama and turmoil as the President gets his feet on the ground. She gave the examples of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama as having particularly dramatic transitions. Then, she added, "those two guys had actually been politicians!"
Though she extends Trump grace that other liberals will not, it doesn’t means she’ll be casting a vote for him when the time comes. “I'm looking forward to voting Democrat again, but the point is I feel that the media has so utterly lost its credibility that I think people are going to vote against the media again." Paglia knows that Americans are sick and tired of all of the half-truths, anonymous sources, and outright lies that are propagated in newspapers and television screen all over this nation.
Glenn Reynolds, over at Instapundit, agreed but suggested a more damning critique. “Perhaps more accurate to say that the media arm of the Democratic Party is working with the elected and unelected arms of the Democratic Party to create chaos,” he wrote.
If Americans are sick of the media, they are sick of Democrats. And that should really worry liberals.
