“Is this what worries members of the media in private? We’re talking about unrest, downtown DC buildings being stranded. Is it basically because the president himself attacks the elections? Stelter asked.
Glasser said she has never seen a time when more Americans care about electoral integrity than this cycle.
“We are in a situation where journalists, a large part of the American public, do not trust the outcome of the election on Tuesday night, do not believe that our system, fundamentally, is going to hold up. and that has been a determined strategy of the President of the United States, ”explained Glasser. “… We have never had a president willing to attack the legitimacy of our institutions of American democracy in this way before and he has not been condemned by his party.
Glasser mentioned the 2000 election when Florida’s results were hotly contested. President Bush emerged victorious and yet Al Gore was still amiable. The two men “trusted the process” and never questioned it.
“In 2000, there were no closed businesses in the big cities,” Stelter said. “Now let’s be honest, it’s probably happening, Susan, because some business owners are worried about liberal protests if Trump wins, but there’s also this dynamic fear of unrest. in a Trump loss. “

Business is not afraid of the victory of former Vice President Joe Biden. They are afraid he will lose. Look at what has happened in the past six to seven months. Violent BLM protesters – those who associate with Joe Biden and the Democrats – have revolted and looted cities across America. Kenosha, Minneapolis, Lancaster, Atlanta – the list goes on.
The amount of hatred Democrats have for Trump is incredible. They are ready to destroy their own communities because Orange Man Bad. They are ready to do whatever it takes to drive Trump out of the White Hosue (even if it means destroying people’s livelihoods).
It is rich that Stelter mentioned the possible “liberal protests” but quickly ruled out the possibility. Call it that, Brian. These are riots. These are not “peaceful protests” and they are led by people who despise this president.
