MSNBC’s Joan Walsh claimed that some ‘really good research’ indicated that Donald Trump was elected because his supporters were afraid of brown people.
Yes, she really said that!
So terrorism, porous borders, jobs, the economy, and the decimation of the military weren’t even considerations?
It’s important to note that Walsh wrote a book called “What’s the Matter with White People?”
“The really good research that’s taken place since the election shows that fear of a changing America is the number one factor that you can see drive––really divides a white Trump voter from a white non-Trump voter, that it’s fears of brown people, fears of losing the majority,” Walsh told Joy Reid on MSNBC’s “AM Joy”.
Reid added that white voters perceive the “browning of the country” as a threat to their way of life.
Biz Pac Review reports:
MSNBC contributor Joan Walsh claimed Sunday that “really good research” points to the fear of brown people as the reason for President Donald Trump’s success.
Really? So terrorism, porous borders, jobs that have gone overseas and the decimation of the military had nothing to do with it?
