Former CBS talking head told Bill Maher that Trump voters are motivated by something ridiculous

Bill Maher has ruffled feathers on the Left for calling out the insane radicals.

But he still has a strong case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

And one former CBS talking head told Maher that Trump voters are motivated by something ridiculous.

After Donald Trump’s victory in 2016, there was a brief moment in time when Democrats actually tried to figure out why half the country voted for a former reality TV star.

That moment lasted exactly five seconds.

Basket of deplorables

Since then, the Left have simply deemed Trump voters “deplorables” and “MAGA terrorists” who hate the country.

Now former CBS host Katie Couric is arguing that Trump supporters are fueled by “anti-intellectualism.”

Couric appeared on Bill Maher’s podcast to lay out her “theory.”

She said, “I’m talking about overall income inequality and even taking race out of it, the huge chasm between the uber, uber, uber wealthy and people who don’t have $400 dollars in an emergency, it has never been such a stark divide.”

Couric continued, “The socio-economic disparities are a lot and class resentment is a lot and anti-intellectualism and elitism is what is driving many of these anti-establishment, which are Trump voters, or anti establishment voters so, I think that is a huge problem that we have to address.”

Trump supporters are upset with the elites, and with good reason.

The elites have steered the country to the brink of economic collapse and ushered in truly terrible ideas.

On top of that, the elites shredded their last bit of credibility during the COVID regime.

Bad leadership

Couric added, “I mean, globalization and the transition from an industrial to a technological society. I mean, I don’t know if you’ve ever been jealous of someone else or resentful, it is such a corroding and bitter, almost bile feeling. And I think that when people who are really struggling see people who have everything and on top of that are looking down on them it is just a recipe for such anger and grievance.”

Maher quipped, “You would think so. You would think that the ‘eat the rich’ people would occasionally actually eat the rich.”

Couric acted as if the radical societal change just happened, and there’s nothing that can be done.

Mass illegal immigration and outsourcing jobs due to a burdensome regulatory environment are choices made by people in power.

Also, there is a difference between globalization and globalism.

Expanding markets is a natural process, but undermining national sovereignty is not.

Couric and others on the Left continue to be mystified as to why half the country is not on board with the current failing program.
