Former presidential adviser and campaign consultant Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Thursday that Donald Trump will win re-election in November not only because of being a better candidate than Joe Biden, but because of the “idiocy of the Democratic left.”
Morris, who was a long-time adviser to Bill Clinton while Clinton was governor of Arkansas and U.S. president, suggested the unrest following the death of a Black man in police custody in Minneapolis on Memorial Day, which has included riots, vandalism and other violence, will frighten the American public.
“Ultimately, the problem is that Trump is going to get re-elected, not just by his own brilliance, but by the idiocy of the Democratic left,” Morris said on “Greg Kelly Reports.” “Because the Democratic left, the radical left, is scaring everybody to death: knocking down statues, changing curricula in schools.”
Morris said the Trump campaign will capitalize on the Black Lives Matter protests and their calls to “defund the police.”
“There is an ad that the Trump campaign is putting on tomorrow, where the phone rings and a woman answers it, hears a tape: ‘You have reached the police emergency hotline. Because police were defunded, we cannot take your call in-person. If you’re calling to report a rape, press 1; murder, press 2; home invasion, press 3.”
Morris added that some Democrats question the actions and direction of their party but are fearful to speak openly about it.
“They are driven by their own mob,” Morris said. “The parties are driven by primary voters, they’re no longer controlled by leaders. And the voters are demanding this kind of leftist craziness from the Democratic Party. And Biden is caught in the middle. If he moves to the center, he’ll lose the left. He moves to left, he’ll lose the center.
“If he turns around and scolds the left, for tearing down statues and defunding police, they won’t turn out and vote for him. So Biden is trapped. And the Democratic Party is trapped by its own rhetoric. And it’s a beautiful thing to see.”
