‘We want respect!’: Trump supporters whine that everyone mocks them in pity-soaked NPR interview

Published

on

NPR this week reached out to some top Trump supporters to get a feel for their current emotional state — and it found that they are as angry and aggrieved as ever, despite controlling all three branches of the federal government.

Talking with NPR, Trump supporter Kurt Schlichter complained that liberals keep making fun of him instead of taking him as seriously as he deserves.

“We want to be treated with respect and we will not tolerate anything less which is just unacceptable for this to continue,” he told NPR. “I’m tired of Hollywood spitting on us. I am tired of academia spitting on us. I’m tired of the news media spitting on us.”

John Hawkins, the founder of Right Wing News, similarly tells NPR that Trump supporters often feel sad when they see comedians making fun of the president on late-night shows.

“He turns on a TV show where he’s insulted, and then he’s like, well, maybe I’ll just unwind and watch an awards show — the Oscars or something — where he gets trashed all day long,” Hawkins said. “He goes to Twitter and he’s got some you know guy calling him in a-hole… this is sort of like a pervasive all out attack if you’re a conservative. And it’s all the time sort of thing.”

Conservative columnist Matt Lewis, who is not a strident Trump backer, said that Trump supporters’ grievance is fueled by the fact that they keep losing cultural battles on issues such as same-sex marriage.

“I do think that it’s true that conservatives have lost in many ways the culture,” he said. “There is a sense on the right that is apocalyptic and fearful.”

Published

Emerson College was blasted for leaving their own senator out of head-to-head matchups in their latest nationwide poll.

But the poll did not even test Warren in head-to-head matchups with Trump.

Published

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) met with Culinary Union members in Las Vegas, Nevada Tuesday night during the CNN town hall for her opponents. The Culinary Union is made up of the over 60,000 hotel housekeepers, bartenders, restaurant and casino workers, and others who make up the backbone of the entire city. Many members are Spanish-speaking and people of color, yet it was still puzzling why Klobuchar began her speech with a bizarre anecdote.

According to Culinary members and reporters present, she began by saying, "My name is Amy, but when I was in fourth grade Spanish they gave me the name Elena."
