Scarborough: Hannity, Coulter, Breitbart “About To Learn What The Flummoxed Mainstream Media Learned” About Trump Supporters

MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ tries to make sense of President Trump’s latest position flip, this time on DACA. The president explained his deal with Democratic leaders ‘Chuck & Nancy’ this way yesterday: Trump on DACA: “We’re Not Looking At Citizenship… We’re Looking At Allowing People To Stay”

“There were actually people who were shocked yesterday that Donald Trump didn’t do exactly what he told them he would do,” the former Congressman Joe Scarborough exclaimed. “People like Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter and Breitbart. But to hear them talk, it sounded an awful lot like, it sounded like members of the mainstream media.”

“Donald Trump’s base is Donald Trump’s base. And just because Steve King and Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity feel insulted now because he’s done something they don’t like doesn’t mean Donald Trump’s base is going to leave Donald Trump because they’re just not,” he concluded.

It seems to me — What Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Breitbart, everybody else is going to learn is what the flummoxed mainstream media learned, and what people on the right and left learned, what Jeb Bush learned, what Marco Rubio learned.

Donald Trump’s base is not Ann Coulter’s base, it is not Sean Hannity’s base, it is not Steve King’s base. It is not CNN’s base. It is not Jeb Bush’s base.

You know where I am going with this. It is not ‘Morning Joe’s’ base. Donald Trump’s base is Donald Trump’s base. And just because Steve King and Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity feel insulted now because he’s done something they don’t like doesn’t mean Donald Trump’s base is going to leave Donald Trump because they’re just not. …read more
