Kevin from Indiana said he, too, is “angry” and “disappointed” with Trump, and has been from “early on.” So did he vote for him again? If you’ve enjoyed the ad-free Signorile Report since it launched, or began reading recently, please think about becoming a subscriber and supporting
He’s listened to Limbaugh for 30 years. 30 years of hearing vitriolic hate speech, fear mongering, conspiracy theories, misogyny, racism, anti-gay rhetoric—and WE are the ones missing an opportunity to unite?! I love that you told him he “will get no absolution here.” Poetic!
As always, I enjoy that you give time to the deluded trumpers and then drag their minds out of the darkness and into the light of shame and reality. I would have wanted to hear Kevin's own words of what specific policies and legislation that not only Trump but past Republican Presidents passed that favored workers, and then compare it to Democratic Presidents and Democratic Congress. He is surely drinking the charlatan's Kool-Aid. Or as we say in The Bronx, where I am from, you got hustled! And, to have voted for trump the second, Kevin is worst than being a racist. He is dismissive of others; only he and his kind matter: an entitled racist!
"I listened to Rush Limbaugh for 30 years..." And? That just shows how long you had poor taste and judgement. Manufacturing jobs went down under tRump. AND he voted for him again. Jeez, fix yourself, first, Bud.
They just don't want to be called "racists." Then stop supporting racists! If the sheet fits, Kevin.
This call (meaning your handling of it) is a top 5 all-time fave. I was applauding in my kitchen by the end. Bravo!
That caller sure is trying to win a gold medal in mental gymnastics.
I was driving when I heard the call.
I listened with amusement as you challenged Kevin and laughed when you changed your tone at the end by saying "...have a nice day".
We are applauding in our house as well! This guy needs to work on his own thing before coming to you *us* for absolution. I mean, the Gold Star Family and McCain insults came BEFORE the 2016 election, where Kevin didn't have ANY manufacturing improvements (not) to point to for why he voted for the guy. As long as they continue lying, they can't come in the tent.
Great job Michael letting him have it. So he's not a racist, he's not a bigot, then he must be a moron, because he voted for this crap again?!? He believes that Trump's policies help the middle class, not this member of it, I may have gotten $10 or $15 more in my paycheck from his Repugnican 'tax cut', but I lost over $1,000 when they took away the ability to deduct my home mortgage interest from my federal taxes!! Thank God at least Governor Cuomo understood and allowed us to deduct it on our NY State returns.
I am so damned sick of listening to these people try to turn themselves inside out to justify their warped views.
I do not think there is any chance that the people who voted for tRump, especially the people who voted for him a second time are redeemable.
I have no patience or interest in engaging with them. There is no possibility of “unity” in my opinion.
I still think our democracy is hanging by a thread. If I were younger I would be figuring out how to leave as I am not so sure about the future here. Half the population are cultist idiots.
Trump never had credibility...... these Trumpters looking for pity. Very early on my ass
Thank you for your many talents in dealing with hypocrites! You knew who he was the minute after talking to him.
Guilty by association. This is a lesson I taught my children. No excuses. These Trump voters are back peddling because they know he was a horrendous liar and failure. Like you have said many times Mike, if you voted for Trump you are a racist or at lease making excuses for racism. I don’t think a lot of people understand racism, or Fascism. Tomorrow is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Antisemitism is at the highest rate in decades. This frightens me because I have Jewish Family all over the world.
I was listening when this guy called in. I’m really tired of racist, bigoted people demanding that those of us who are targets for their hatred bend over backwards to make them feel no guilt/less guilt about the heinous people they are. If he voted for Trump twice, he is a racist and bigot and misogynist. If they don’t like America and the diversity then they should leave. Nothing is stopping them. Buh-bye!
Michelangelo, you coolly, calmly and methodically tore Kevin into little pieces and you didn’t need to involve his religious beliefs with regard to his support of tRump....and not to give him absolution was a master stroke, that will have him really more confused for sometime.
These people are starting to encounter closed doors/ people not welcoming them back after the election. They are 100% daft and obtuse to how much damage their Trump support lead to.
People like Kevin may SAY they aren't racists, or that they didn't like Trump's behavior, but that doesn't matter a bit when they vote for him. That vote says they are OK with the racism, misogyny, and criminal behavior. As Churchill said..."deeds, not words."
