Dan Rather: Trump Supporters Seem ‘Cultish’
On CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday, former CBS News anchor Dan Rather called President Trump supporters increasingly “cultish,” saying their support is “all about him, it’s not about a policy.”
“Increasingly, President Trump’s support seems cultish,” Rather opined. “It’s all about him, it’s not about a policy, it’s not the standards of politics. Ronald Reagan had a very solid following but he stood for something in terms of policy. Franklin Roosevelt, same way.
“These cults, cults generally don’t end well. People will say it’s too much to say it’s a cult. I don’t think so. The further we go, it is always all about him. It’s not about a policy,” he added.
Rather, whose career was soaked in deceit and anti-conservative bias, apparently never viewed his own open adoration of Bill and Hillary Clinton as cultish. Nor did he ever refer to the idolatrous leftists who deified “Messiah” Barack Obama, including his fellow activists in the mainstream media, as a cult.
