Waleed Shahid is a Democrat strategist.
He appeared on MSNBC to espouse a twisted version of democracy the left would absolutely love.
The thing is, Shahid is wildly inaccurate.
And it’s kind of crazy.
From Free Beacon:
MSNBC panelists struggled Thursday to explain the concept of democracy while considering the rise of socialist ideas in the United States.
The discussion on MSNBC Live, hosted by Katy Tur, led off with a discussion about the latest college admissions scandal. The Department of Justice charged dozens of wealthy parents this week with fraudulently securing college admission for their children.
Shahid: “Democracy should mean taking power and wealth from those who hoard it, and making sure it belongs to everyone.”
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.
The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.
ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”

For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.”
JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.”
Over 60 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Over 60 million Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.
Of course, the former first lady won the popular vote. However, the former businessman won the electoral vote.
One of those things matters more than the other and for good reason.
It is to prevent tyranny of the majority.
According to MSNBC, though, Trump wasn’t “democratically” elected.
MSNBC panelists have come to the astute conclusion that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually elected — at least not “democratically.”
2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s father is Jamaican and her mother is Indian.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews basically wants to know if she’s black enough.
Matthews: “Is she seen as African American? Is she seen as African American?”
Imagine if a Republican commentator said this.
