When Elise Jordan was writing speeches for George W. Bush and Condi Rice, it’s unlikely that her lexicon included such vulgarities.
But now that she works for MSNBC, Jordan needs to establish her liberal street cred by breaking out such coarse lingo. On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski asked Jordan whether the Trump base, as represented by the people at attendance at yesterday’s rally in West Virginia, would be moved by yesterday’s news about Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Responded Jordan.
“The short answer is ‘no.’ It’s very baked in as of now and is not going to change that Donald Trump is indeed a scumbag. Voters know that. They do not expect him to be the kind of man who treats his wife with any decency and dignity. And that is a known, and isn’t necessarily going to move the most hard-core voters.”
And yet the liberal media constantly accuse Trump of degrading the level of political discourse.
We doubt that Jordan was taught to speak that way in public when she was raised in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Then again, she did attend Yale. That will coarsen a woman up.
