You knew it might have been a bad night for Joe Biden by the way MSNBC responded. The post-debate Democratic hack crew on Thursday night turned to MSNBC regular Jon Meacham to slime the country’s voters. Meacham ranted that the President appeals to the “lizard brains” of “white guys.” He also sneered that Trump was “auditioning for a show on Fox.”
Smearing the 62 million Americans who voted for Trump in 2016, the author and MSNBC analyst fumed, “There is a lizard brain in this country. Donald Trump is a product of the white man’s, the anguished, nervous white guy’s lizard brain.”
Conceding a bit that Trump may have had a good night, Meacham allowed, “I think Trump did himself good with his base tonight. The question for America is how big that base is.”
Earlier, he snarled at the President’s performance: “Well, it was remarkable to watch it in person. I’ve never seen a general election debate actually in the room. And one man was running for president of the United States, and the other man was auditioning for a show on Fox.”
Clearly Meacham knows how to audition for a show on MSNBC.
Trying to make his hack Democratic talking points sound profound, he added, “And that may sound like an attempt at glibness, but it was the innate reaction I had to watching the President who dwells in this wilderness of mirrors, to borrow a phrase from the Cold War, where there are these code words.”
The MSNBC journalists soldiered on with their Democratic talking points, however. Nicolle Wallace declared Biden the winner: “Let me grade this debate by the old fashioned standards. Joe Biden won this debate running away. Not only did Donald Trump lie — All the lies just you singled out were in the first 15 minutes of an hour and a half long debate. In the old days, one lie meant you lost.”
