"Trump is a symptom of a larger problem"
Jimmy Dore Show
Jimmy Dore: "I understand why people are afraid of a Donald Trump presidency. But Trump is not the problem. He’s a symptom of the problem. Why do you think people voted for Trump? Because everything is going great in their lives? Trump didn’t take us to Iraq. Trump didn’t pass NAFTA. Trump didn’t bail out the banks and screw the homeowners. If people actually knew what Bill Clinton and Barack Obama actually did, they would be screaming bloody murder. The Democratic party completely turned their back on workers, they got in bed with Wall Street and Silicon Valley. This is the result [Foreclosure]. In order to get better, we have to come to terms with this. We have to come to terms with what’s wrong. People are hurting. Half the country’s poor, you assholes. When both parties turn their back on the workers, they’re going to go to a demagogue. Which is why Hillary Clinton lost to an orange clown. You know, her slogan wasn’t "I’m With You." Her slogan was "I’m With Me," "I’m With Her." What the f…? You’re supposed to be with us you stupid jag-off."

Jimmy Dore: "What? What are your values? What the f… are they?"
[Shows DNC chairman Tom Perez: "We have to expose Donald Trump" …]
Jimmy Dore: "No. We have to expose the Democratic party. Bill Clinton did stuff that Republicans could only do in their wet dreams. He exploded the prison population, gutted Welfare [a.k.a., Aid to Families with Dependent Children], and then repealed the New Deal banking regulations. Barack Obama repealed Habeas Corpus, shored up the surveillance state, and the people who exposed war crimes inside of our government, he put them in jail and tortured them. The Democrats are a grass-roots party the same way Monsanto is an organic food company. We should do a program where we just make fun of the Democratic party. But it’s important to respect the dead. And everyone is still saying: “You gotta vote for us, because Trump. You tried this before. You’ve got to beat Trump with something. Where’s your platform for getting us out of the seven wars Obama got us into? Where’s your platform for ending fracking? Where’s your f...ing platform? How about a living wage? Free college. Single Payer so sick people can get healthcare in America. That Bernie’s crazy. How can we afford less-expensive drugs? I say, the establishment, if you can’t join them, let’s f… ing beat them. We need a f...ing revolution."
