Thanks for the link, I agree it was a shit show on all sides. She was on Joe Rogan a few months ago if anyone is interested. It was not the most enjoyable of his podcasts. I think it came in at 2.5 hours and she really isn’t interesting enough to carry that time. She’s articulate and seems sincere in her beliefs, I don’t think she is supporting Trump for pay or publicity. But she’s not that intelligent or well informed, and sadly I think she only gets the level of attention that she does because she’s black.
The part where they get into climate change is tedious, but says a lot. Basically, she doesn’t believe in it, because she’s on Team Republican. That’s intellectually weak. Her whole platform is based on the notion that African Americans are stuck on Team Democrat, to their detriment, and that they should think for themselves, which I believe has merit. But then, on that issue, she’s not thinking for herself. I would have been more impressed if she would have said “I’m not well informed on that, so I decline to take a public stance.”
Micheal Eric Dyson is a clown. Using forty words that you just looked up in the thesaurus when ten get your point across is not a sign of intelligence. But it is a great way of hiding the fact that there is little to no substance to your message.
If the media wants to pick on a “token black for Trump” I wish they would give more attention to the Hodge Twins. Those guys may not be geniuses but they are fucking funny, and from my part of the world.
