Liberals Don’t Seem To Understand America

Today’s show has it all: Joe Biden gets 2 new accusers, Bernie Sanders has no idea what hypocrisy is, Gillibrand doesn’t understand the destructive power of government, and high-paid journalists have no clue what journalism is supposed to be.

Listen to the show:

Former Vice President Joe Biden now has accusers 3 and 4, as 2 new women came forward to tell their stories of how “Creepy Uncle Joe” got a little too handsy with them in the past. These stories are actually pretty weak, but they’re also an indication of how much the left now fetishizes victimhood. We explain.

Bernie Sanders doesn’t understand why conservatives could be pro-life if they support the idea of getting the government out of people’s lives. The reason is quite simple: conservatives know a fetus is not a clump of cells, it’s a living person. What Bernie doesn’t explain is how liberals could support complete government control of every aspect of people’s live but support non-involvement in this one (and only this one) area of it, aside from having taxpayers pick up the check. He also came out against packing the Supreme Court, though not because it would be an abusive power grab, but because Republicans would then do it too. We get into all of it.

MSNBC personality Stephanie Ruhle drooled all over Kirsten Gillibrand’s proposal of government-provided child care, and Gillibrand got just about everything wrong with her declarations of what programs like Head Start actually accomplish — (which is nothing according to a government study conducted by the Obama administration). We have the audio.

CNN personality Christiane Amanpour wondered if the government should have stopped the “lock her up” chants at Trump rallies during the 2016 campaign, equating it with hate crimes and worrying about how it could have inspired violence. For someone who regularly wraps herself in the First Amendment, she does’t seem to have read it.

And the executive editor at The New York Times thinks journalism has no need to present both sides of stories, especially on climate change. He appears to have no understanding of what his profession claims to be. We get into it.

We discuss all this and a lot more on today’s show.
