A stark reality has begun to settle into the collective mindset of the far left. The Democratic Party does not have a standard-bearer who can take on President Donald Trump in the November election.
That’s a hard pill to swallow after three-plus years of relentlessly resisting and obstructing every America First policy the White House implemented. But following the recent all-Caucasian national debates by the party that claims diversity above all else, even the most dedicated liberals are throwing in the towel.
“And I want to say that tonight for me was dispiriting. Democrats are going to have to do better than what we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw tonight that would be able to take Donald Trump out, and I want to see a Democrat in the White House as soon as possible,” CNN personality and former Obama adviser Van Jones said following the debate. “There was nothing tonight that, if you’re looking at this thing, you say, any of these people are prepared for what Donald Trump’s going to do to us. And to see further division tonight is very dispiriting.”
Jones was a rising CNN celebrity until President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address. After being moved by the president’s respect for suffering Americans and the widows of soldiers, Jones said, “That is my president.” He was noticeably absent from CNN for an extended period after making that pro-Trump remark. If everyday people can say anything about Jones, he speaks his mind regardless of whether it supports the party’s narrative.
Although Jones can be something of a political maverick, much of the fake news media continues to promote the false propaganda insiders believe will help a Democrat establishment candidate unseat President Trump. One CNN moderator deliberately undermined Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, while glossing over the litany of lies floated by former VP Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren — CNN’s favored candidate. What looks like a rigged primary process has not lent comfort to hardline Democrats that want to take back the White House in 2020.
“You cannot stand up and be, just go along to get along and think you’re going to be the next president,” Rev. Al Sharpton reportedly said. “I didn’t see anybody on the stage last night or in the ring that really said, ‘I’m taking charge, I can be president, I can take on Donald Trump because he is going to come in with that kind of mindset.’ And I don’t see that mindset yet in any of the candidates.”
Sharpton has a long and infamous track record of making outlandish anti-conservative and anti-Trump remarks. For him to throw the dwindling field of presidential hopefuls under the bus, something must be very wrong in the land of liberals. Beyond a clear lack of an Alpha in their ranks, the remaining Democrats have no viable policy direction.
Trump has shouldered the load and ushered in almost unprecedented economic opportunity. He’s securing the U.S. Southern border, beaten Iran at its own game, and just signed off on the first round of a trade deal with China. Many believe the president’s tough negotiating tactics allowed his team to get the better of China. U.S. companies will now see expansion in the Asian power’s markets, and greater intellectual property protections. With a booming economy and 50-year lows in unemployment, the field of Democrats have either no prosperity plan, want to attack the rich, or spend trillions without handling the national debt.
The recent debates showed ineptitude while sending a clear message that all their talk about minority inclusion and diversity are lies. The last debate ousted the Democrats’ last remaining minority over money. The all-white lineup of Sleazy Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, and billionaire Tom Steyer was a slap in the face to minority representation. So blatant was the showing that liberal Late Night hosts are mocking them.
“There was controversy because tonight was the first time in this election cycle that Democrats had an all-white debate stage,” Late Show host Stephen Colbert quipped. “Once again, J-Lo was robbed.”
Daily Show comedian Trevor Noah’s remarks carried a similar sentiment, but were funnier.
“With only six candidates, it was the smallest debate yet, but it was also the whitest debate yet,” Noah said. “The only person happy about this was Greta Thunberg, because the stage was so white it reflected the sun back into the atmosphere.”
Not only do Democrats not a champion worthy of challenging President Trump, they’re mocking the front-runners.
