Leftists and their media don’t understand Donald Trump. That became clear early in the presidential race in 2016.
I can understand misinterpreting Trump during the race and leading up to the election. However, one would think the results of 2016 would have made the media and other Leftists take pause; perhaps become more circumspect about Trump, and his ability to energize the nation.
That’s not the case. Leftists continue using the same tactics. Dismiss the obvious lack of enthusiasm for Biden. Then underestimate the overwhelming support for Trump. Next, pretend that Biden is polling better than Trump and hope for the best.
Nothing new, yet some pundits pretend the Democrats have a new act. I made a video explaining how there is NO way in hell Trump loses to this clown. Watch if you want ammo to throw in the face of the zombies who think Biden has a chance.
Everybody doesn’t share my optimism. But they likely didn’t predict the Trump win in 2016. I did.
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume chimed in on the strategy. He admitted Sunday that Joseph R. Biden’s “senility” has been on display for some time now. Hume also suggested that President Trump should let Biden put his senility on display. Further, he alluded to President Trump’s slim chance of winning unless he heeds his advice.
“I think [Mr. Trump is] in a place where the only thing that might save him would be a performance or several performances by Joe Biden in which his senility, which I think has been obvious to careful watchers for some time, becomes utterly obvious that people begin to say, ‘Wait a minute, we really can’t have this guy in the White House.’”
Not even wiggle room in that comment, as Hume suggests Biden is a foregone conclusion.
I am friends with Brit Hume. But he really missed the mark on this one.
As I said on my radio show when Frank Luntz made the same declaration: Trump doesn’t need debates to beat Biden. Biden is a ticking timebomb whenever he speaks. And he’s put his foot in his mouth enough for ten election cycles.
Still, others chimed in with the same sentiments.
Democrat strategist James Carville told MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” on Monday he knows Biden will win. In fact, Carville is so confident in a Biden win, he predicted the election will be settled “at 10:30 Eastern” on Election Day.
“Not only are we going to know election night, we’re going to know at 10:30 Eastern,” he told host Brian Williams. Carville continued,
“This thing is not going to be close. We’re going to know early. I’m not in any panic whatsoever. I mean, I’m just on edge because the stakes are so high. But I feel very good about where the Democrats are. And I’ll probably see as much polling as anybody in the country. And if anything, it continues to improve.
“I kind of thought the natural gravity would take it down, but that doesn’t seem to be happening as of yet. And we’ve got three weeks before we go to post. I’m ready to go. I think we’re going to know, and I anticipate opening a bottle of champagne. Brian, maybe I’ll share it with you by distance.”
But before you get too caught up in what Carville said today, look at what he said in October 2016:
On Friday’s edition of Real Time James Carville told HBO host Bill Maher he thinks Donald Trump will drop out of the presidential race. Fellow guest Mark Cuban was in agreement. Video of an interview Trump did 10 years ago where he used lewd language surfaced prior to the show. From Real Time:
BILL MAHER: Donald Trump was supposed to have a rally tomorrow with Paul Ryan and now he has been disinvited — this just happened before we went — and it’s going to be Mike Pence and Paul Ryan. Wow. When the top of the ticket is disinvited to his own rally?
MARK CUBAN: He’s finally toxic. Donald Trump is finally toxic.
JAMES CARVILLE: Mark and I got in a discussion before the show. I think he’s going to quit. Really, right now, I’m saying right here.
MAHER: You know why he’s not going to win? Because his basket of deplorable and if the basket fits…
If you are still impressed with Carville’s abilities to foretell the future, pump the brakes just a bit.
Carville prepped for his crescendo of Clinton victory press with this interview with Vanity Fair, Sept 1, 2016:
The Hive: So, who is going to win the election?
James Carville: It’s hard to look at it right now and come to any other conclusion than it is going to be a pretty sizable win for the Democrats. It’s pretty hard to see anything else.
Was it ever close?
Well, I mean, the demographic changes in the country are substantial, and they are changing rapidly in a way that is unfavorable to the Republican Party. And the Republicans, I would say, continue to make a bad bet. They keep doubling down on these non-college whites. This has proven to be very successful in certain parts of the country and in off-year elections, but it has not worked very well at all in presidential years. It’s working terribly now.
Beyond those changing demographics, why is the Republican Party struggling this cycle?
Look, the last time we had a Republican president we had a disastrous war and a disastrous recession. To the extent that peace and prosperity matter to anybody—which have traditionally been the two biggest drivers in American politics—they do not bode well for the Republicans. It’s hard to expect that you are going to do very well if that’s people’s most recent memory of your party governing, in addition to being a party whose primary appeal is to the shrinking demographic that is non-college whites. In some ways it’s amazing to me that they are not doing worse. Honestly.
Trump’s hard-core supporters are not the same people who voted for Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, or Jeb Bush. What’s happening to the Republican Party?
Trump came in and fit perfectly with at least half of the Republican Party, which is some version of an ethnocentric, nationalistic party that is very different from what we have traditionally seen from Republicans. And I think that as Republicans have perceived their party to be shrinking, they have hardened in their views, which is pretty damaging to their immediate-term prospects.
You can’t miss the mark much worse than this. I would be embarrassed about this, and would keep my mouth shut if I screwed up this badly.
But Democrats make a living lying to one another. And currently, Carville is getting paid a lot of money to make Leftists feel good about their chances.
Read anything the man wrote, and you have to ask if he’s still in rehab. Nothing Carville said jived with reality. Unless you remember how wrong he got it in 2016.
So yes. We will know the winner by 10:30P ET on November 3. And it will again be Donald Trump.
