Now that journalists and media retailers are telling us it’s time for togetherness and to celebrate the election of Joe Biden, it’s price remembering what “unity” seemed like in 2016. Far left hosts and celebrities weren’t so huge on the approaching collectively. On November 9, 2016, Rachel Maddow in contrast the election of Donald Trump to… the Cuban Missile Disaster: “We have confronted crises earlier than as a rustic. Generally they’re, you already know, malfunctions. Generally they’re getting ready to nuclear struggle. Most instances, it is someplace in between.”
Here is Maddow’s post-Trump win rant:
We have confronted crises earlier than as a rustic. Generally they’re, you already know, malfunctions. Generally they’re the brink of nuclear struggle. Most instances it is someplace in between. However we rise to the event, we all the time do. We improvise, we do what we are able to, we step up. There are protests on the streets tonight, huge ones. There’s controversy already over how the president-elect is treating the press on his journey to the White Home tomorrow. There are doomsday plans going into motion throughout this nation proper now when it comes to civil rights. … It is a huge to-do record.
On November 14, 2016, The Washington Submit’s Eugene Robinson echoed Rush Limbaugh and hoped Trump failed:
If a standard Republican had been elected, I may say the well mannered and socially acceptable factor, one thing like “I didn’t assist So-and-So, however he can be my president, too, and I want him success.” However I can not want Trump success in rounding up and deporting tens of millions of individuals or banning Muslims from getting into the nation or reinstituting torture as an instrument of U.S. coverage. In these and different divisive, merciless, unwise initiatives, I want him failure….
On November 14, 2016, Avengers director Joss Whedon demanded that Trump not be “allowed” to take workplace.
Bear in mind all of this as Democrats and liberals within the media demand a fast concession and instant “unity” to the desires of Biden and Democrats.
