Charlie Sykes: "You will note that in the Trump video, he's not killing Assad, or ISIS, or Putin"



Charlie Sykes ✔ @SykesCharlie

"You will note that in the Trump video, he’s not killing Assad, or ISIS fighters, or Putin, or Kim, or Xi, or avatars of any of America’s foreign foes. That would be kind of ridiculous. But also, beside the point."

1. From the article

the video is the answer to my question: This—the video—is what Trump voters signed up for.

They don’t care about Syria, or tariffs, or the Russians, or the Wall, or anything else that we traditionally think of as policy goals. They don’t even care about judges or abortion or free trade.

They care about hurting their domestic enemies.

9. I saw a few interviews back in 2016

that some Trump supporters knew Trump would screw them over, but liked him because they knew Trump was going to hurt those "other guys' more than them... left unsaid was that meant non-white, non Christian, non-Democratic types.

15. "He's not hurting the people he needs to be hurting"

Rachel Maddow had it from a New York Times story about one of their occasional anthropology expeditions into the American hinterlands. Naturally, as good liberals, we're supposed to understand and empathize with these mean little people who think the primary job of the president is to hurt the people they hate (i.e., good liberals). Liberals would get along much better with these hateful, spiteful people if we all hated ourselves.

11. Replace "domestic enemies" with "the libs and their media" and I'll agree.

"Owning" the libs and blasting the media is EVERYTHING!

14. What those rubes don't understand

is that those they perceive as enemies are the very ones who are trying to help them— with healthcare, and stronger unions, and improved infrastructure, etc

6. Looks like Charlie found his nuts again.

He has been a Trump critic but in a "both sidism" kind of way. Now it appears he may be all in.

13. Why do so many Americans from both parties believe it is OK to

go around the planet and kill leaders of other countries.
This is undemocratic thinking.
