Laughing at Cupcake Carl Bernstein… Wants probe into how voters could ‘possibly support’ Trump…
Bernstein wants probe of why people support Trump
This week’s Liberal Media Scream features journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame calling for a deep dive on why people support President Trump.
On CNN’s Reliable Sources, Bernstein accused Trump of bringing a “cold civil war almost to the point of ignition” by promoting “undemocratic notions and authoritarian notions.”
And he urged an exploration of why people support him “no matter what he does, no matter how outrageous seemingly his conduct is.” He urged the media to do “some real reporting” by making “our table bigger in terms of our reportorial landscape.”
“Look, this cold civil war predates Donald Trump. And Donald Trump understood that we are in a cold civil war in this country. And he has exploited it and brought this cold civil war almost to the point of ignition through his actions and his words, which are unprecedented in terms of presidential conduct.
“No president in the history of the United States in 246 years has expressed the kinds of ideas and thoughts and undemocratic notions and authoritarian notions that he has. We need to start connecting these dots. What do people in the country think of this and why do they think and support him, no matter what he does, no matter how outrageous seemingly his conduct is. We’ve got some real reporting to do that we need to make our table bigger in terms of our reportorial landscape and get out of the political weeds.”
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our weekly pick: “Some fresh, zany ranting from Washington Post veteran Bernstein who always sees Trump causing impending doom without consideration that, far from igniting the ‘cold civil war,’ Trump is simply reacting to the Left’s effort to undermine traditional patriotic values. Nike and the Betsy Ross flag is just the latest example. It’s also humorous that, three years after Trump took office, Bernstein wants expanded reporting to learn why the strange natives would support Trump.
