Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart has been an icon of the liberal left for years. And even he thinks they’re being hypocrites for calling Trump supporters racists.
He made his comments during an appearance on the CBS This Morning Show.
Here’s a partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
Jon Stewart: “Hypocrisy” For Left To Think Everybody Who Voted For Trump Is A Racist
I thought Donald Trump disqualified himself at numerous points. But there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric. There are guys in my neighborhood that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of Mexicans, and not afraid of Muslims, and not afraid of blacks. They’re afraid of their insurance premiums.
In the liberal community, you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. Don’t look at Muslims as a monolith. They are the individuals and it would be ignorance. But everybody who voted for Trump is a monolith, is a racist. That hypocrisy is also real in our country.
