Dean said, “These people are essentially authoritarians. They will say whatever it takes. They’re not that different from Putin. And they like Putin. These are dangerous people.”
Clearly Dean has zero self-awareness about how closely his own Party fits that description.
He continued to rant, “I think Matt Gaetz is sort of a tool in their hands, but there are people in that Congress who mean America harm… I don’t think the American people are going to vote for these people. They barely won the House this time. If it hadn’t been for a bunch of screwups in New York, we could have won. Having these people on television, I mean, you can have them on once in a while, but I wouldn’t give them much of a platform because they mean evil for the country.”
Again, no self-awareness. Republicans want to make America great again; it’s Democrats who mean evil for the country they want to fundamentally transform.
Dean is no political genius. He’s a petty little demagogue, and MSNBC is not a news source but a leftwing propaganda outlet.
