Former CNN host Piers Morgan delivered a brutal wake-up call to Democrats with just two weeks to go before midterm elections.
Morgan predicted President Donald Trump will deliver “the biggest knockout punch of his presidency” as he declared in an op-ed for the Daily Mail on Monday.
“President Trump is winning,” the “good Morning Britain” host wrote, telling Democrats simply, “Trump’s kicking your a**.”
“There is simply no other way to fairly interpret the fact that he’s just hit a new high in his approval rating,” Morgan wrote. “Even better for Trump, he’s officially more popular than his predecessor Barack Obama was at the exact same stage of his first tenure as President.”
Democrats are “heading for a midterms disaster,” the UK journalist warned, citing a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that showed Trump at a 47 percent approval rating – an all time high that beat Obama’s 45 percent two weeks before the 2010 midterm elections.
“Given all the fire, brimstone and perpetual outrage about Trump since he won the White House, this is a truly remarkable state of affairs,” Morgan wrote, noting that the results would be met by liberals with “fury, incredulity, and by sticking their collective heads in the sand.”
“‘HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING?’ they will wail uncontrollably,” he wrote. “‘WHAT THE F*** IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE WHO LIKE HIM?’ they will howl into each other’s kale salads.”
“All of which will be music to the ears of Trump, a man who absolutely revels in liberal hysteria because he knows it works for him, as this new poll proves,” he continued. “In two weeks time, he may deliver the biggest knockout punch of his presidency.”
“Until recently, it was widely assumed the Republicans would lose control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections,” Morgan explained. “It was being depicted as a ‘damning referendum on Trump’ and historically, most presidents – like Obama – take a whack in the midterms. But now, I’m not so sure. In fact, I’d say there’s a very good chance the Republicans will hang onto the House, as well as the Senate, and Trump will move on empowered and emboldened to what could very well be an even bigger win in 2020.”
The TV host further pointed to the media’s “constant collective outrage over every tiny thing Trump, says, tweets, or does” as another reason the president will triumph, slamming liberal celebrities who are always “shrieking away on social media about their hatred for Trump.”
“It’s the same flawed, arrogant and elitist mentality that led to Hillary Clinton branding Trump supporters ‘a basket of deplorables’ in a speech that I still believe did more than anything else to lose her the election,” Morgan wrote.
“The effect of this endless hysterical cacophony, as I have repeatedly warned, has been to make Trump ever more popular with his base and with the GOP,” he wrote.
“I look at the Democrats today and see a Party that’s learned absolutely nothing about how to beat Trump,” Morgan stated. “And I see a president who’s growing stronger by the day.”
“Love him or loathe him, there is no denying that he’s winning,” Morgan concluded. “Once again, I can only advise the Democrats to stop their ridiculously self-defeating state of perpetual Trump outrage and work out how they’re actually going to beat him.”
