A Trump Supporter Tried To Confront This Senior Democrat And Got Absolutely Destroyed

Thanks to the domination of the media by the right wing establishment in Washington (which, in turn, is controlled by President Donald Trump’s White House and his cronies) Trump voters often have a distinct sense of over confidence. Remember those scenes during the campaign leading up to the 2016 presidential election when Trump voters used to clash with protesters at those barnstorming rallies? Well, that nonsense never went away.

A recent example came when Robert Reich, a senior Democratic figure, found himself being confronted by an angry Trump supporter. Reich is a very, very big name on the left of American politics – he is a former Secretary of Labour, having worked for Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama. This guy knows his stuff, so some unintelligent Trump obsessive confronting him was probably not a good idea – but they did it anyway, of course. Reich narrated what happened, and it really is staggering to read:

I finally found a Trump supporter — this morning when I went to buy coffee. (I noticed a Trump bumper sticker on his car.)

“Hi,” I said. “Noticed your Trump bumper sticker.”

“Yup,” he said, a bit defensively.

“I hope you don’t mind my asking, but I’m curious. Why are you supporting him?”

“I know he’s a little bit much,” said the Trump supporter. “But he’s a successful businessman. And we need a successful businessman as president.”

“How do you know he’s a successful businessman?” I asked.

“Because he’s made a fortune.”

“Has he really?” I asked.

“Of course. Forbes magazine says he’s worth four and a half billion.”

“That doesn’t mean he’s been a success,” I said.

“In my book it does,” said the Trump supporter.

“You know, in 1976, when Trump was just starting his career, he said he was worth about $200 million,” I said. “Most of that was from his father.”

“That just proves my point,” said the Trump supporter. “He turned that $200 million into four and a half billion. Brilliant man.”

“But if he had just put that $200 million into an index fund and reinvested the dividends, he’d be worth twelve billion today,” I said.

The Trump supporter went silent.

“And he got about $850 million in tax subsidies, just in New York alone,” I said.

More silence.

“He’s not a businessman,” I said. “He’s a con man. Hope you enjoy your coffee.”

This is incredible. It is the common sense booster that that person needed so badly.
