You likely don’t know who David Brandt is.
Don’t feel too bad, we don’t either.
But, his tweet trashing Trump supporters has gotten a good deal of attention on Twitter so we felt it was our duty to share it with you, dear reader.
Note, David apparently used to be a reporter but NOW he’s dedicated to social justice and fairness and stuff.
This is called voting against your own best interests. pic.twitter.com/vO7WeY92kg

And we all know how much anyone likes being told they’re voting against their own best interests.
I've seen many positive responses to this post, but some think I am being mean spirited. That's not my intent. You can say this is a poor way to win over Trump supporters, but for now, that's not possible. I will settle for Democrats winning and making their lives better.

Repeat after us.
Seems Trump supporters know what’s in their own best interest.
Mean spirited? No.
Condescending and stupid? Certainly.

You're not self-aware enough to realize it, but your attitude is in great part to credit for Trump winning in 2016.
You have no better message than condescension. You deserved to lose then like you deserve to lose now. Please continue your routine.

He’s literally helping reelect Trump with his attitude.
I understand your intent here. However, it would be presumptuous of me to make the same tweet without knowing their situation pre/post Trump presidency.
His policies may have truly benefited this person.

Democrats don’t make things better. If they did Minneapolis and other major cities wouldn’t have the worst racial disparities now, would they? https://t.co/BqeLYftnBL

Guess which party runs and has been running Minneapolis for a long long time?
Hint, it ain’t the Republicans.
I don’t think you’re being mean. I think you’re being an arrogant douche.

Biden said he would demand more of my earnings. That will not make my life better.

Democrats made my life worse

Democrats don’t make anything better.

I can't imagine why your snotty elitism isn't willing anyone over.

Right? It’s a total mystery.
