Washington Post "Reporter" Calls Trump Voters "Rubes" On Podcast

This is the same guy who posed as a "conservative" to serve as the Washington Post's "conservative beat" reporter. And then was a big macher on JournOList.

When Rush Limbaugh had a heart attack, he opined that he'd strongly prefer if Limbaugh were to die.

All I know is that all of the "conservatives" I think are fake conservatives love tweeting with him. They just find him quite the charmer.

Chapo Trap House is considered "cool" by hard left dirtbags, so Dave Wiegel was probably trying to fit in with the cool hardleft dirtbag kids.

While calling Republican voters "rubes" is both unprofessional and too honest for the media -- the media has rules against revealing the political biases that everyone knows they have -- the stuff he said beyond that isn't completely wrong.

"[Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell [R-Ky.] didn't care about the wall... he's very good at identifying what the rubes want to hear," Weigel said, "because all he cares about is getting enough judges to strike down campaign-finance law, strike down gun law, strike down health care, etc."

"All of his brilliant tactics are like, 'What if we don't have a vote on this? What if we just sit here for two years and don't have a vote on this?'" Weigel added. "On the wall, like, 'What if we don't do that? What if we just don't do that? Everyone go away so I can confirm more judges.'"

Indeed, McConnell is master thespian at Failure Theater. He agrees with liberals -- or agrees with his corporate sponsors, who are liberal socially -- on many issues, and likes arranging things so that Republicans can be seen "fighting" (which the base likes) but ultimately losing (which his corporate sponsors like).

He doesn't want the wall. He could have done a thousand things to bring it about; he chose, as usual, not to do any of them, except to give a speech in which he claimed he's Totes McGotes in favor of a wall.

Just not in favor of voting for funding for one. But in theory, sure, he loves the wall in theory.

Per the Daily Caller, the Washington Post says the "matter is being handled internally" which means it's being covered up and critics and reporters asking questions about it will just be given the run around.
