MSNBC Host Joe Scarborough has revived his "President Bannon" smear.
In what is becoming the ultimate “tell” that the globalists are losing ground, Joe Scarborough on Sunday revived his “President Bannon” smear.
“President Bannon’s brilliant strategy of only playing to the base while enraging the rest of America adds up to 36%,” he tweeted.
It is worth noting that the day after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, Scarborough nearly lost his mind by repeating “President Bannon” over and over and over again like a maniac on his program.
Ann Coulter called him out then on his blatant ploy by tweeting: “Scarborough must think @realDonaldTrump is really stupid to fall for this ‘President Bannon’ taunt.”
Scarborough officially announced that he is not a Republican last week, and his latest taunt comes after a recent Axios report indicated that the nationalists in Trump’s White House are getting their ideas heard and becoming more influential.
After unveiling his new metro haircut (only a matter of time before he starts wearing a scarf) and music album, Scarborough made his “dramatic” announcement about leaving the GOP on Stephen Colbert’s show last week, and Scarborough’s former producer, who now produces Colbert’s show, was one of the first to break the “news.” Now, Scarborough is sounding more like someone who wants to revive “Hot Soup,” a “No Labels”-like venture that spectacularly failed.
But what Scarborough does not realize is that Trump’s approval rating has not plummeted and remained relatively steady even though the media have hyped all sorts of “scandals”–Russia, CNN-WWE tweets, “facelift” tweets, etc.–during the past two months.
In addition, all of the polling done on Trump must be taken with a grain of salt because of “social desirability bias”—which means regular voters who do not live in areas where Scarborough’s new hairdo is in fashion do not want to tell oh-so-properly-sounding pollsters that they support Trump because they do not want to be mocked by the smug elites who regularly appear on Scarborough’s program and mistake “sounding smart” for actual knowledge.
And as Scarborough’s colleague Chuck Todd recently noted, Trump’s supporters, especially in today’s fragmented political era, still make up the “biggest faction” in politics.
