I cam across this video on my Youtube recommendations.
It is very difficult for me to say a good think about a dedicated Leftist. I find their morals to be detestable. I have a true dislike for the dyed-in-the-wool Bernie Sanders supporter because I loathe what they stand for. It is greed and avarice. Sure, they will tell you they are for more equality or some bullshit like that. But what they really want, when you listen to them, is for people who make more money than they do to pay for their tuition, health care, rent, and everything else. They believe it is the job of the government to redistribute wealth from those who make a lot of it to those who don’t. The latter group, just happens to include them. It is greed and avarice, dressed up as altruism.
For the 22% of Sanders supports who have jumped over to Trump, I can say this complimentary thing about them. They may have detestable principles, but they are principled none the less. When you ask them why they won’t support Hillary, to the man, they say it is because Hillary is a hypocrite. She comes out against the 1% in speeches and then takes tens of millions of dollars in speaking fees. She rails against Wall Street and then takes money from Wall Street and uses her influence to bail out her Wall Street son in law. She is the queen of the 1%; corrupt, greedy, immoral, etc.
It’s hard for me to praise Trump, but I will say this complimentary about him. He’s not a hypocrite. What you see (as bad as it is sometime) is what you get. He isn’t a billionaire that badmouths making money in some “I feel your pain” populism.
In this regard, Trump and Sanders are similar. They are honest about what they stand for. They don’t pander.
So watch how this Daily Show correspondent treats these Sanders turned Trump supporters like heretics. This isn’t an interview. This is her trying to convince them that they are wrong and them mocks them for their supposed stupidity. I can’t agree with a Sanders supporter on 99% of issues, but as soon as one says that Hillary is corrupt, greedy, and should be in jail and not the Oval office, I can come across no-man’s-land to shake hands on that. This correspondent is just a Democrat-at-all-costs Hillary hack.
I know The Daily Show is on Comedy Central. But it has billed itself as a News Show for some time. Not a parody news show but a real news show.
I liked Jon Stewart. He was legitimately funny. Yes, he was left of center, but he attacked Democrats as well when they deserved it. It wasn’t perfectly balanced, but Stewart had the integrity to point out bullshit on both sides of the aisle.
This isn’t funny. This isn’t speaking truth to power. This pure, one sided hackary.
