CNN’s focus groups are more like a focus on which obvious “plants” the network can hire to take part and say just the right (or the wrong) thing about President Trump.
But like in Little Shop Of Horrors, yesterday the plants came alive.
A Jamaican man who voted for Trump gave CNN host Alisyn Camerota a rant to remember, telling her that if CNN brought Jesus down to Earth to say that Trump colluded with the Russians, he would have to “check with the President first” to see if it was true.
The run-down from The Hill:
A man who said he voted for President Trump in 2016 said on Monday that if Jesus Christ told him Trump colluded with Russia, he would still have to check with the president to see if it was true.
“If Jesus Christ gets down off the cross and told me Trump is with Russia, I would tell him, ‘Hold on a second. I need to check with the president if it’s true,’” said Mark Lee, one of six Trump voters to appear on a CNN panel Monday morning.
Lee said he believes in the president and his mission of “draining the swamp.”
“Trump is there for the small guy; he’s there for people like myself,” Lee said.
Lee described the “swamp” as “the mainstream, the elites that look down on a guy like me.”
Ruben Estrada, another panelist, also spoke about the importance of draining the swamp of political elites, referring specifically to the House and Senate.
“You make it more accountable to the people,” Estrada said.
Lee said that he doesn’t believe having multimillionaires in Trump’s Cabinet is counterproductive to Trump’s “drain the swamp” message.
“I love that,” he said. “They’re not politicians.”
Let’s just say this is a moot point. If Jesus returned now, he’d tell the Democrats to stop trying to start a war with Russia.
