A reporter for MSNBC recently admitted on the air that many Democrat voters are not ready for life to go back to normal, suggesting that many of them don’t even want it to.
He actually says that Democrats view mask wearing as a sort of virtue signal.
It’s amazing to hear so much truth in a segment on the far left network.
FOX News reports:
NBC reporter: The ‘challenge’ for Dems is their liberal base isn’t ‘comfortable’ with going back to normal
NBC News Digital senior politics reporter Alex Seitz-Wald offered a blunt assessment of the “challenge” Democrats face as the push to lift COVID restrictions and return to normal continues to pressure liberals across the country.
A swath of Democratic governors announced this week they were lifting their state’s mask mandates in the coming weeks.
However, a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll showed a whopping 65% of Democrats who say it’s “too early to rescind mask mandates,” which is far more than the 43% of overall Americans, including just 20% of Republicans.
“How are these leaders squaring that… the numbers versus the sentiment?” MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson Jackson asked on Wednesday.
“Yeah Hallie, I think these Democratic governors are basically playing to where they think the ball is going to be if not where it is now, Seitz-Wald responded. “They’re kind of trying to get ahead of the inevitable because the trend lines have that a growing number of Americans, including a lot of Democrats, are heading towards if not already at the point of saying ‘You know what? We just have to get back to normal.’”

Just an absolutely amazing admission here. An MSNBC reporter notes that the biggest challenge for Democrat governors ending their mask mandates is that liberals have made mask-wearing such an important part of their identity that they might not be able to give it up. pic.twitter.com/LhCp4T279A

If Democrats want to continue to isolate in their homes and wear masks, that’s fine.
The rest of the country is ready to move on without them.
