Writer Andrew Sullivan told MSNBC host Ari Melber to his face on Friday that he works for a propaganda company.
During a lengthy debate on Bill Maher’s HBO show “Real Time” about the significance of Donald Trump’s political resurgence, Sullivan observed how the Democratic Party’s reaction to Trump is eroding American democracy.
“What the Democrats have done the last four years, which is respond to Trump by going even further to the left, means that we are losing the legitimacy of the system,” Sullivan said. “When you lose that core legitimacy, you lose your democracy — that’s where we are really going to lose our democracy because we don’t believe in it any more.
The left’s overreaction, according to Sullivan, is driving Americans to distrust “all the institutions” and to support “a strongman” like Trump. Sullivan, therefore, predicted Trump will defeat President Joe Biden in November.
