Democrat voters tore their own party to shreds in a focus group on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”
Host John Dickerson showed a clip of Hillary Clinton blaming FBI Director James Comey, Russia and Wikileaks for the fact that she is not the president, and asked the panel for their opinions on both her and the party.
“I think the Democrats, not only are they out of touch, they have no interest in correcting the situation. They’re not doing any postmortems. They’re writing off, ‘Well, we don’t own the White House because of Putin or because of WikiLeaks,” a group member named Jerry said.
“What did WikiLeaks tell us, by the way? They– regardless of who was behind it, they confirmed that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment are liars. And that they had their thumb on the scale for– you know, for Hillary Clinton. Well, you know, so what are they basically saying? “If– if we hadn’t been caught lying, we’d be running the country right now.”
A woman, identified as Barbara, was mostly tired of hearing about Russia.
“That was one of the things that’s driving me absolutely mad,” she said. “I think Russia has already been proven to not have had any impact on our elections. They did not, you know, drive from polling place to polling place and, you know, hoodwink the machines and whatever. And so to try to keep going on, that really makes the Democrats look a little desperate.”
Fred, from Reading, Pennsylvania, said it was the Democrats abandonment of the working class that has doomed them.
“One thing I know people in my city are thinking about, and it’s what this whole country’s thinking about, when people are polled, the number one issue is jobs and the economy,” he said. “And I think that’s one thing that the Democratic Party always talked about in the past. You know, they were supposed to be the party that represented the blue-collar workers. And now, in this past election, you know, we didn’t hear anything about jobs.
“Trump was the one talking about jobs, about, you know, the outsourcing problem, bringing back jobs,” he continued. “And I think one thing that the Democrats are so out of touch with America about is that you ask Democrats about jobs and what their solution is, and they have two solutions. Number one is raise taxes on the rich which, honestly, that does not create jobs. And number two thing they say is, “We need to raise the minimum wage.” People in Reading, Pennsylvania and everywhere don’t wanna work at McDonald’s their entire life.”
