Wake is neither dumb, or uneducated. He is a product of his environment, culture and beliefs. To a certain extent his views are limited, however not invalid. His forecasts on the next election are not that far off base.
The media outlets are biased to the left and are defined in 3-5 coastal hubs. They view Trump as the enemy, trump in response is treating the press as the enemy. A Tit for Tat no win game. Who started the game we are currently engaged in; too many parties to blame. How do we get out of this destructive game and tone down the rhetoric - you do not want to know my thoughts.
I knew 2 years before 2016 Hilary was not going to win. Her hopes depended 3-4 pockets of Liberalism. Thomas Jefferson saw to it her plans were not to come to fruition - the Electoral College worked for the second time in its history. The left was furious and doubled down on their attacks which is turning off the middle.
With Sanders down, and Biden politically wounded the Dems are in a tough spot. They do not have a viable candidate that can win. Thank Wasserman-Schultz for this debacle due to her backdoor dealing with Hilary in 2016.
2020 will be a watershed and I hope not the precursor to a civil war the Dems cannot win. I do mean a hot civil war. Abraham Lincoln prescient in his thoughts an arguments had two statements
A. A house divided cannot stand by itself
B. The US will not Fall by attack from the outside, it will fall by rot from the inside
“Better a true enemy than a false friend.”
