He just crossed the line.
According to Breitbart News, John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign manager Steve Schmidt attacked President Donald Trump supporters stating they are “a cult of personality” that mindlessly cheer the president talking about drinking water.
MSNBC host Brian Williams said, “I caught an article yesterday, the gist of which is that American passports are useless right now. Let’s ignore for the moment that the pandemic has made travel unreachable, impossible, and unpalatable for most people. If you wanted to, if you had the means or perhaps the urgency, a mission to travel the world, we are allowed as Americans into Turkey, Tanzania and Mexico. Europe is cut off for us. We can’t drive north into the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. We have become pariahs because of our spike.”
Schmidt said, “All of those countries share something in common, the ones that want to keep Americans out. They’re governed by responsible leaders by and large. You can’t allow Americans into the country right now because of the coronavirus threat. There’s a sign that has taken off in London apparently that’s all over the sidewalks. It says ‘Americans must be accompanied by an adult.’ We’re a national laughing stock. The president is a national laughing stock. When you ponder that the richest and most powerful country in the world, the country with the world’s leading research universities, the most advanced math and science country in the world, that we’ve brought low by conspiracy theorists on a cable news network, by talk radio hosts, by internet trolls, by a president who refuses to read and do his homework, refuses to listen to medical experts, only cares about himself, not the American people, cares only about his re-election. ”
He continued, “The American people have been gaslighted, lied to. We have 35% of the country that’s decided to join a cult of personality. When you look at that Tulsa rally, and you see those people there — I wish these people no ill. I want them to be successful and happy and for their families to be safe. I don’t want to be ruled under them. The foolishness of the mindless cheering for someone as they described their walk down the narrow and shallow West Point ramp or their talent at drinking water with two hands, it’s just madness.” You can read the full article here.
