Political strategist Paris Dennard told Trump-hating CNN pundit Tara Setmayer to “get over” President Trump winning the election because it’s time to stop whining over spilled milk.
“He won — get over it,” Dennard said. “He won. That’s how we roll.”
Dennard made the comments in response to CNN host Fredricka Whitfield, who said President Trump misrepresented his support among women voters at a recent rally. Trump said he had received 52% support from female voters. Whitfield claimed he only got 41% support from all women voters, but 52% of white women.
That’s when Dennard — who was director of black outreach under President George W. Bush — said it’s time to stop parsing Trump’s every word in an attempt to discredit him and start getting serious about fixing the nation’s problems.
Setmayer, a self-proclaimed “conservative” who spends all her air time trashing President Trump, spat back:
“This kind of petulant, ‘get over it, he won’ attitude right there is why so many people feel that what Donald Trump created in this country is bigger than just ‘He won, get over it,'” she said. “It doesn’t have anything to do with that.”
Setmayer said if Barack Obama had acted as childishly has Trump has, or it he had a “porn scandal” like Trump does, Republicans like Dennard wouldn’t condone his behavior. “He behaves like a reality show joker,” she said.
“He’s not doing that,” Dennard replied. “I’m sorry you feel so passionate about the situation. Get over it, he won!”
Setmayer was furious that Dennard kept telling her to get over it.
“What is this? Get over what?” Setmayer shouted. “I’m just supposed to be okay with the President of the United States being like that?”
Basically, what Paris Dennard was saying is that the media and anti-Trumpers quibble over and obsessively analyze every little thing President Trump does, says, or tweets because they don’t like him. Meanwhile, they overlook his accomplishments, like crushing ISIS, reducing illegal border crossings, tax reform, and making progress toward denuclearizing North Korea.
The media and liberals have also spent the past year breathlessly insisting Trump had colluded with Russia because they still can’t get over that he won the 2016 election. Special counsel Robert Mueller has provided no evidence of collusion after an 18-month investigation. Meanwhile, the media blithely ignored that Obama had befriended anti-white, anti-semitic Muslim extremist Louis Farrakhan.
Here’s a small sampling of Farrakhan’s racist comments over the years. What if Trump had been friends with an extremist like Farrakhan? Imagine the volcanic outrage.
“The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”
“White people are potential humans – they haven’t evolved yet.”
“Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning men into women and women into men.”
“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew, and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”
