Oh Great News: Republican Hater Tom Friedman Is Here With Advice for the GOP!

Who better than far-left Democratic shill Tom Friedman to give advice to the Republicans he so despises? The New York Times columnist appeared on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour on Wednesday night offer disingenuous suggestions to the GOP (a party he has previously called a cancer) and also to Democrats on how to hide their radical agenda.

Talking to Brian Williams, Friedman stated it was important for Trump to be impeached so that “the principal Republicans moved to the center, we could actually then get a strong problem solving caucus in the Senate and the House.” Explaining how the two parties could work together, he added, “We already saw the potential of that with the stimulus bill. And we leave the Trumpers and the QAnon and the conspiracy theorists as a rump Republican Party that will find it impossible to win a national election. And Lord, that will be a blessing for America.”

This is the same Friedman who, in December, told Williams that the Republican Party has “become a cancer on our democracy.” He doesn’t exactly have the best interests of the party at heart. Then, the Times columnist turned around and gave Democrats advice. But it mostly amounted to stop letting everyone know just how radical you are:

Stop talking about defunding the police. Okay. It’s not only a bad idea, it`s just a terrible message. Talk about better policing. All right. You know, stop talking about democratic socialism. Talk about inclusive, just capitalism. Talk about not just redefining the pie, but talk about growing the pie. And let’s, you know, we have to dial down the canceled culture, political correctness in newsrooms and college campuses. It’s out of control. And Trump fed off that.

The Democratic spin on MSNBC was sponsored by AT&T. Click on the link to let them know what you think.

The 11th Hour With Brian Williams

1/13/2021

11:30

BRIAN WILLIAMS: It is indeed Trump’s party and airgo the primetime hosts over at Fox News all have a role in it. I want to play for you Tucker Carlson from tonight.

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST: Why are Republicans playing along? They don’t really have a sound political rationale for any of this. They’re just dumb and guilty by impeaching the president during his final week in office. Congress will not succeed in discrediting Trump among Republican voters. In fact, it will enhance Donald Trump among Republican voters, obviously.

WILLIAMS: Obviously, Tom, what do we make of that?

FRIEDMAN: You know, these guys are knuckleheads, then it`s nothing but all star wrestling, you know, bribery, those guys, whatever, get them a headline or rise out of their party, they’re not important. What’s important, I believe, is that Trump be impeached, that he’d be made politically radioactive, that the principal Republicans moved to the center, we could actually then get a strong problem solving caucus in the Senate and the House. And we already saw the potential of that with the stimulus bill. And we leave the Trumpers and the QAnon and the conspiracy theorists as a rump Republican Party that will find it impossible to win a national election. And Lord, that will be a blessing for America.

WILLIAMS: Tom, now we reached the tough love part of our program, your advice for the Democrats who are, let’s face it, not without problems, weaknesses, and bad instincts at times?

FRIEDMAN: Yes, look, as I said in that piece done, some things are true, even if Donald Trump believes them. And he didn’t win 71 million votes, just because they`re all QAnon supporters. He touched people. He founded gut connection. And there are things Democrats can do. I think that will make it easier for principal Republicans, however few they are, to really collaborate in the best sense that word with Biden, stop talking about defunding the police. Okay. It’s not only a bad idea, it`s just a terrible message. Talk about better policing. All right. You know, stop talking about democratic socialism. Talk about inclusive, just capitalism. Talk about not just redefining the pie, but talk about growing the pie. And let’s, you know, we have to dial down the canceled culture, political correctness in newsrooms and college campuses. It’s out of control. And Trump fed off that. it doesn’t remotely compare to the canceled culture we saw last week, with an entire party trying to cancel an election. But it is destructive, I believe, for broadening the Democratic, you know, base in popularity in the country. So the things Democrats can do to that I think are good policy and good politics.

WILLIAMS: And it’s for all these reasons yours was among the voices we truly needed to hear from tonight, our thanks to our friend Tom Friedman of the New York Times. As always, please come back.
