The media has been running hit pieces on supporters of Donald Trump for years.

One bitter journalist decided to get nasty in her feud with them.

And Franklin Graham gave a journalist a reality check for this sick attack on Trump supporters.

Katie Couric launches nasty attack on Trump supporters

Former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric appeared on Bill Maher’s Club Random podcast where she went on an elitist rant about supporters of former President Donald Trump.

She pulled a page from Hillary Clinton’s 2016 playbook to describe Trump supporters.

Couric claimed that they were “bitter” and “jealous” over the decline of manufacturing because of globalization.

She told Maher that there’s been a bigger divide between Americans who are ultra wealthy and those who don’t have $400 in their bank accounts.

“It has never been such a stark divide,” Couric ranted. “I feel like, to your point, Bill, that socioeconomic disparities are a lot, and class resentment is a lot, and anti-intellectualism and elitism is what is driving many of these anti-establishment, which are Trump voters, the anti-establishment voters.”

“Anti-intellectualism” is left-wing elite speak for saying she thinks Trump supporters are dumb.

“I think that is a huge problem that we have to address. Globalization and the transition from an industrial to a technological society. I don’t know if you’ve ever been jealous of what someone else has or resentful. It is such a corroding and bitter, almost vile feeling. I think that when people who are really struggling see people who have everything and are on top of that looking down on them. It is just a recipe for such anger and resentment and grievance,” Couric added.

Couric’s remarks were a throwback to Clinton’s 2016 Basket of Deplorable’s speech about Trump supporters. 

Journalists have been trying to figure out Trump supporters for years but they fall back on tired insults like Courtic.

They’re completely bewildered by the former President becoming a political phenomenon.

Trump built a large and loyal following by trying to address the problems that most politicians ignored like unchecked illegal immigration, jobs being shipped overseas, and pointless foreign wars.

His support surged because the elite worldview that Couric represents failed the average American.

Franklin Graham gives Katie Couric a wake-up call on Trump supporters

Reverend Franklin Graham – the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham – reacted to Couric’s comments on social media.

“Katie Couric said that Trump supporters are ‘anti-intellectualists’ & have ‘class resentment.’ Does that mean working class & not so smart? I believe what [Donald Trump] supporters want is a chance at the American dream—less taxes, less regulation, & a strong economy that benefits all Americans. They want a chance to be successful & an opportunity to be free without the government interfering at every turn,” Graham wrote on X.

Nearly a decade after Donald Trump burst onto the political scene, the left-wing elites are as clueless as ever about his base of support.
