Greenberg places much of the blame for the Dems’ failure on the shoulders of President Obama’s handling of the economy for “insistence on heralding economic progress and the bailout of the irresponsible elites, while ordinary people’s incomes crashed and they continued to struggle financially.”
Not only did he bail out assholes (for us — we gotta bail out Wall Street to bail out Main Street, man!) he fucking pretended like he had actually bailed out normal people when all statistics pointed to that idea as complete propaganda.
This clearly opened the door for Trump to swoop up all those economically suffering Americans and bullshit them into believing he was going to do something for them.
Obama made Trump and he will deny it till the day he dies.
