CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, who once praised a play that depicted the murder of President Trump, used his media platform on Monday to label Trump’s election a “class rebellion” against elite, educated professionals in the United States.
Who are these elite, educated professionals? According to Zakaria, they are himself and other CNN figures.
“The election of Donald Trump is really a … kind of a class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities [and] who have cosmopolitan views about a lot of things,” Zakaria said on CNN’s “New Day.”
“I think there’s a whole part of America that’s sick and tired of being told what to do by this overeducated professional elite that Hillary Clinton, in many ways, perfectly represented, and that’s why they’re sticking with him.”
The self-aggrandizing report preceded a segment designed to explain how Trump won the presidency.
Zakaria also highlighted the “cultural alienation” white, non-college educated males felt as a primary force behind Trump’s election:
“The sense that their country’s changing because of immigrants, because maybe blacks are rising up to a central place in society, because of gays being afforded equal rights, because of, frankly, a lot of working women … everyone is, sort of, muscling in on the territory that, if you think about it, the white working man had.”
Earlier in March, Zakaria went on an expletive-laced rant against Trump. In a segment with CNN host Don Lemon, Zakaria claimed Trump only became successful by “bullsh***ing” his way through life.
“The president is somewhat indifferent to things that are true or false,” Zakaria said. “He’s spent his whole life bulls–tting. He’s succeeded by bulls–tting. He has gotten the presidency by bulls–tting.”
