Like the rest of the nation, “The Real Time” host saw Republican gains in this month’s election in his home state of New Jersey and Glenn Youngkin’s victory in the Virginia governor’s race as a sign of bad things to come for Democrats in next year’s midterm elections.
Watters said Maher’s interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo Wednesday proved he is trying in good faith to save the Democratic Party from another red wave in the 2022 midterms when Senate seats in key swing states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin and Georgia, as well as the entire House of Representatives are up for grabs.
Il “Watters’ Mondo” host further suggested Democrats take a page from President Clinton, who moderated after the Democratic Party was upended by Newt Gingrich’s “Republican Revolution” di 1994.
“This is an intervention. And it’s good. Because the left has lost the plot,” Ha detto Watters.
“You had Martin Luther King’s color-blind society. That’s what we were all aspiring to until the share of the White vote [in the Democratic Party] started to decrease and all of the coastal college-educated liberals took over social media.”
“They figured ‘why don’t we unite all of the authorities in the country against traditional White working Americans and if you do that, you can win the national popular vote.'”
That strategy, Ha detto Watters, simply “p—ed everybody off, [Compreso] millions of normal people and now it’s starting [to do so to] normal Democrats.”
“The Democrats need to do this – what did Clinton say? It’s the economy, stupido, and I feel your pain – not ‘it’s the climate, stupid.’”
