MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” host Ed Schultz said that “last night was a complete rejection of the President of the United States and what he stands for” on Wednesday.
“Last night was a complete rejection of the President of the United States and what he stands for. You can’t sugarcoat it. There were four main Democratic themes in this election that simply did not work. Democrats focused on income inequality, the war on women, voting rights, and fighting bad trade deals. Now, those themes, well, they just didn’t ring true with voters, and just didn’t ring true with voters on the ground” he stated.
Schultz also criticized the president’s press conference by contrasting it with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY), “two press conferences today. The first one, the new incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, focused, to the point, very direct. The president, later on, subject after subject, almost rambling, certainly looking for all the right words in a very conciliatory tone.”
