Get this: Hillary Clinton’s former senior advisor and press secretary, Phillip Reines, is concerned that millennials might turn on Democrats in the 2020 election after they benefit from the GOP tax bill and wind up with more of their own money in their pockets. Just another reminder that Dems are running a modern-day plantation and don’t want their people to be free.
“I don’t know how millennials think,” a flustered sounding Reines said on C-SPAN. “It’s unclear what will get them going.”
He said Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren might be able to “tap in” to the younger demographic, but added they shouldn’t expect to get the kind of voter turnout Hillary Clinton did.
“It’s not like that’s some sort of bedrock,” Reines said. “She worked for it; she spent a billion dollars on it. So, it’s not a gimme.”
The next part is a bit rambling but the underlying fear that millennials might turn on a Democratic Party again, like they did in 2016, is palpable:
“Millennials have to say this is not normal and there’s a lot of pressure to shut up. Donald Trump and his people want everyone to shut up; get over the election; Hillary Clinton go away. That’s in their best interest, but that’s not how it works. We’re supposed to oppose what we disagree with. And I hope millennials don’t fall into a lull of accepting this is what it is. God knows how many of them will see their taxes go down and base it just on that.”
So, how would Reines like to see them vote in 2020? Why "productively," of course:
“They are a key demographic that voted oddly in 2016 that I’m not sure that people understand how to get them to vote, you know, productively in 2020.”
Roughly translated, that means, “Vote the way we tell you.”
