Sportscaster Bob Costas stunned Trump supporters by announcing that those who support the former President are “MAGA cultists” and even alleged that they aren’t patriots.
During Friday’s showing of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Costas claimed, “They call themselves patriots. We’re True-American patriots. Who tried to overthrow the election? Who tried? It’s on tape. The phone call to election officials in Georgia and everywhere. All these things that are preposterous, on their face. And yet, if you are a member of a cult, you’re down the line with that cult.”
Costas apparently didn’t get the memo that the “call” from Trump to Georgia election officials was misrepresented and taken out of context to slander Trump.
Costas also seems to suggest that questioning the outcome of an election makes one anti-American. Costas doesn’t seem to hold the same contempt for Democrats who questioned the 2000 presidential election.
Figures like Costas have demonized and generalized all Trump supporters as crazed cultists and then turn around and wonder why America is so divided.
Trump supporters have legitimate grievances and problems that needed to be addressed. Trump supporters have spent the last year being demonized, and they will respond in the 2022 midterm elections.
