Leftist Noam Chomsky Says Democrat Fixation with Russiagate is A ‘Huge Gift’ to Trump that Will Hand Him 2020
The leftist icon, Noam Chomsky, shocked Democrats by saying it “was pretty obvious” there was no real collusion with the Russians by the Trump campaign. Chomsky criticized both the Democrats and their voter base for “investing everything” in ‘Russiagate’. He stated it very well could be what costs them the 2020 election.
Amy Goodman from Democracy Now interviewed the political philosopher and asked Chomsky to explain Donald Trump within 10 minutes. He explained where Trump came from, what he says about the GOP, and what the best response to Russiagate is.
Chomsky begin with explaining why Trump got elected in the fist place.
“Well, Trump is—you know, I think there are a number of illusions about Trump. If you take a look at the Trump phenomenon, it’s not very surprising. Think back for the last 10 or 15 years over Republican Party primaries, and remember what happened during the primaries.
Each primary, when some candidate rose from the base, they were so outlandish that the Republican establishment tried to crush them and succeeded in doing it—Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum. Anyone who was coming out of the base was totally unacceptable to the establishment. The change in 2016 is they couldn’t crush him.”
Chomsky goes on to say, that Trump knows how to work the system, and the Democrats are helping him!
“And, I should say, the Democrats are helping him. They are. Take the focus on Russiagate. What’s that all about? I mean, it was pretty obvious at the beginning that you’re not going to find anything very serious about Russian interference in elections. I mean, for one thing, it’s undetectable. I mean, in the 2016 election, the Senate and the House went the same way as the executive, but nobody claims there was Russian interference there.
The Democrats invested everything in this issue. Well, turned out there was nothing much there. They gave Trump a huge gift. In fact, they may have handed him the next election. That’s just a—that’s a matter of being so unwilling to deal with fundamental issues, that they’re looking for something on the side that will somehow give political success.”
“The Democrats invested everything in this issue,” he said. “Well turned out there was nothing much there.”
“They gave Trump a huge gift. In fact they may have handed him the next election,” said Chomsky.
Ouch. That’s gotta hurt.
The left has failed to remember the mid 90’s and the Clinton impeachment. Chomsky is correct, The Democrats have put all their eggs in one basket, and it will be there downfall.
There is a HUGE civil war going on in the Democrat party and it is multi-faceted.
First, there is the Ocasio-Cortez/Bernie Sanders socialist wing vs the mainstream Democrats.
I vote with Ocasio-Cortez! She holds the possibility to destroy the Democrats, and the leadership knows it. Nancy Pelosi has tried hard to keep it under wraps, but even she has publically smacked AOC a few times.
Then there is the impeach Trump vs the let’s focus on the issues crowd.
AUNT MAXINE!!! The gift that keeps on giving!
As long as the Democrats are involved with infighting, and concentrating on Trump, they get nothing done.
Top their downfall!
Keep the popcorn running!
