'When People Can’t Express Their Opinions Without Being Called Bigots, They Find an Outlet'

On Wednesday’s “MSNBC Live,” anchor Stephanie Ruhle, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, and journalist Tina Brown discussed the 2016 election and political correctness, and during that discussion, Ruhle wondered if political correctness has prevented people from saying things that are important, and Bruni and Brown concluded that when people feel they’ll be attacked for speaking their minds, they find an outlet like President-Elect Donald Trump.

Ruhle asked, “Did we over-simplify things? Did we believe that Hillary Clinton and this all-inclusive global citizen message does represent the United States, and thought that this base that Donald Trump had really was just in this narrow nationalist vertical?

I don't understand why these people feel it is every ones fault and not theirs. If they want better then get out there and earn it not steal it. I am tired of the whites being blamed for what they don't have. If it wasn't for the (working force) you would not have what you are getting for free. So she lost suck it up baby cakes and move on. How would you feel if she won and trumps people did the same. It would be all over the news. So I'll end with saying I am having a great time today knowing that Trump won. Yea us. (map)

Was flipping through the various talking head shows relishing when I happened to land on this show with Ruhle. Was shocked that it was MSNBC and an anchor was making sense. Pleasant surprised. She backed Bruni of the NYT into that admission.
Had to look her up to find out her name. Rarely do I visit MSNBC.

The liberals are the ones who are shortsighted and full of hatred. Just look at their current protests. They cannot accept defeat as the conservatives did when Obama won twice.
