Many Democrats still are bewildered by the fact that Donald Trump garnered 74 million votes in the 2020 election. How could this be?
They think that Trump is a modern-day Hitlerian figure that no one in their right mind could support.
It isn’t good enough that Joe Biden was elected president, because nothing’s ever good enough with the Left. They had to obliterate Trump for their point to be proven, but they didn’t. As it is, they barely squeaked by with a victory…and even that’s debatable. Even though they still won in the end, Trump still got too many votes for their liking, and they don’t know how to handle it.
The fact that 74 million people in the county are still out there disagreeing with their agenda has the Left in an uproar, and the mask of civility has started to slip as they try to crack down on that disagreement.
Exhibit A: Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Schumer took his shot at Trump supporters recently during a televised interview in which he said: “How could 74 million people vote for such a despicable human being as Donald Trump? I don’t care if you’re a liberal or a conservative, Democrat or Republican, he is a vile man.”
“He is dishonest, divisive. That’s what he loves to do. Just divide and have people fighting with each other. He’s a racist,” Schumer claimed. “And he always appeals to the dark side of human nature.”
Yes, Chucky, it’s Trump supporters who support dividing the country. Pay no attention to the woke Left that has worked towards—and largely succeeded in—dividing the country on racial, political, sexual, social, and religious lines.
But it’s the “Big Bad Orange Man’s” supporters who are doing the dividing, right?
Someone needs to get Schumer a hearing aid because he is clearly tone-deaf. That is what happens when you live in a bubble in Washington D.C. and New York and never venture out to “flyover” country to hear the concerns of everyday Americans who aren’t a part of your clique.
Schumer would understand why so many people support Trump, flaws and all, if he simply listened to their concerns.
Many people who support Trump support him because he fights back against elitist figures like Schumer. For years, Republican leaders sat back and let the political and cultural Left ridicule everyday conservatives.
Then came Donald Trump. He fought back and defended these conservatives who had been bullied at all levels of culture, the Left still can’t comprehend Trump’s appeal because he broke their brains.
One would have thought that Chuck Schumer and the Left would have understood by now that mocking and chastising Trump supporters in public is a losing strategy.
In 2016, Hillary Clinton famously called Trump supporters “deplorables,” and we all know how that worked out for her White House aspirations.
She said, “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And, unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”
So, if Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of the tone-deaf Democrats want to understand why Trump has so many supporters, they should look in the mirror. They created the conditions for a leader like Turmp to come along and fight back against them.
Sometimes the most obvious answers to questions are so damn simple that we miss them. Sometimes they are right in front of us and were the whole time.
