Fmr Anchor Dan Rather Claims Anyone Who Votes For Trump Is Dumb
Former CBS Anchor Dan Rather appeared on MSNBC with Jonathan Capehart where the talked about the upcoming election and what they feel is at stake, Rather was quick to make it clear where he stands on the election as he feels voting Trump is voting for white supremacy.
“What this presidential election is about, is whether the country’s going to move more in the direction of white supremacy or whether it's going to move more in the direction of a multiracial, constitutional republic based on the principles of freedom and the democracy. That’s the proper frame, in which we now should put this election given what the president says, what he’s been doing — this long list of things. No sense going through the litany, but, you know, he knew in early February how serious the coronavirus was, but he repeatedly misled the American people. He now says...He said using an excuse and an outright lie, he didn’t want to spread panic.”
“Well, throughout his entire presidency and particularly during this presidential re-election campaign, he’s been trying to get people panicked, Panicked about dangerous people moving into your suburban neighborhood, panic over immigration. His whole campaign is based on panic. He’s asking us to believe that when it came to the coronavirus, he just didn’t want to spread panic. Anybody who believes this will believe that rocks grow, and we’re going to find out how many people are dumb enough to believe that. I’d like to think that most people in the country recognize it for what it is, and that is an excuse, and it’s a lie, and it’s outrageous, and it’s very dangerous.”
It seems like anyone who believes Rather here is really the one that needs to get their head examined. Trump is not pushing white supremacy. His campaign promise is to make America great again, not white again. But Rather here would have you believe that Trump is trying to cause chaos and is against freedom. Maybe this is why Rather is no longer on the air with this kind of outlandish mindset.
