Donna Brazile warns liberals: dismiss Trump at your own peril

 September 4, 2023

In a shocking CNN segment, top Democrat Donna Brazile praised Donald Trump and warned the left to "respect" his historic movement. 

Brazile marveled at Trump's amazing resilience - and ability to mobilize millions of Americans behind him as he faces multiple unprecedented indictments.

"This is a movement, and anyone who thinks that you can apply the old political rules to try to defeat this candidate based on he’s scary, he’s ugly, whatever you might want to call him, this is a movement. We have to respect the fact it’s a movement.”

Trump has often told his supporters, "They aren't coming for me, they're coming for you."

It's a message that resonates with millions of people who are aghast at the unprecedented effort by Trump's political rivals to throw him in jail - itself an escalation in a "witch hunt" that has lasted nearly a decade.

Brazile noted how Trump managed to turn being prosecuted into a positive - turning his mugshot in Atlanta into a symbol of defiance and a powerful fundraising tool. The mugshot has widely been seen as a miscalculation by the local prosecutor in Atlanta, Fani Willis.

"I’ve never seen anything like this with Donald Trump," Brazile said.

"I mean, what doesn’t kill you make you stronger. I mean, being indicted, that’s making him stronger, raising $10 million using an ugly mug shot to raise money."


Meanwhile, Trump's four indictments appear to have only strengthened his popularity among Republican voters. A new poll found Trump with a monster 46-point lead over his nearest rival Ron DeSantis, once seen as the only credible challenger to Trump.

And remarkably, Trump remains competitive with Joe Biden in general election polling, despite the efforts of Democrats to derail Trump's campaign with lawfare.

Brazile compared the charismatic Trump to Ronald Reagan and his "reactionary" revolution in the 1980s, which manifested in a historic landslide in 1984, as well as Barack Obama's movement in 2008, which became the precursor to the modern woke movement.

“I’m old enough to say this. I’ve seen two movements outside of the Social Justice movements in my life on the political side. One was the Reagan movement. Reagan had a hold on his base," she said.

"The country at large, they saw him as someone who was willing to stand up for American values, whatever that might have been. Now I thought it was reactionary. The other movement I saw was Barack Obama, hope and change. That galvanized the American people.”

A broken clock is right twice a day. Through all their blind hatred, Democrats are realizing that Trump remains a formidable threat to their power.
