The Young Turks‘ Cenk Uygur issued a rebuke to Democrats who were assured that Hillary Clinton was a sure bet to beat Trump.
Uygur was responding to footage of a Florida crowd breaking out in laughter when Democratic congressional candidate Charlie Crist said at a debate that Clinton was “honest.” Crist is a former Republican and also former Florida governor.
“They LOL’d literally. That’s a LOL,” Uygur said.
He continued, “Democratic party establishment, you knuckleheads. What have you done? What have you done? You thought that she was the better candidate.” He noted that Florida, the home of the Clinton-heckling audience, is a “pretty important” state.
“It turns out that we weren’t just telling you Hillary Clinton is a bad candidate because we like the other guy. It’s because we were right, but they’ll never admit it,” he said. During the Democratic primary, TYT supported Bernie Sanders.
“We’ve got 48 days to Armageddon,” Uygur said, noting Trump’s leads in Florida and Ohio.
“Get your head out of your — let’s be polite and say, get your head out of the sand. Okay? She’s losing! She’s a terrible candidate! Figure out a strategy in the next 48 days to turn around, otherwise you’re going to make Donald Trump, the monster, idiot, whatever you want to call him, loser… Donald Trump will become the most powerful man on earth.”
After a pause, he added, “Jesus, what have you done to us?”
