Newly elected Democrat Senator Doug Jones, a hardcore anti-life leftist who’s been labeled as a “centrist” and a “moderate” by the mainstream media in order to make him more palatable to voters in deep-red Alabama, was asked on Thursday to name just “one issue” he’d work with Republicans on.
Even conservative media was duped into thinking that Doug Jones could really be a “moderate Democrat after all,” an attempt to lessen the sting of losing a Republican seat in a conservative state to a far-left Democrat like Doug Jones.
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough, Doug Jones, who was narrowly elected last month after a vicious politically orchestrated personal character assassination campaign against his opponent, Judge Roy Moore, struggled mightily to name even “one issue” where he’d be willing to compromise his progressive leftist ideology.
Instead, he deflected:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: “Can you name a major issue where you think you’re going to be able to work with Richard Shelby and other Republicans in the Senate to do something that may not be popular with your Democratic base or popular with Democrats in Washington but will be more popular with the people back in your home state?”
DEMOCRAT DOUG JONES: “Ya know, I don’t know if there’s one specific issue that stands out right now. You know, Washington is kind of almost the — you know, what’s the issue du jour? Every day there’s something new that pops up.”
Jones went on to mention funding the CHIP program, something both parties already have a strong political interest in funding, so that wouldn’t be exactly crossing the aisle. But he did say “you know” a lot, displaying his being uncomfortable with the question.
In other words, he’s not as advertised by the Democrat Media Complex. Doug Jones is not a “centrist” or a “moderate” as the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC told us ad nauseam the past few months.
Of course, appearing on leftist MSNBC is friendly turf for any Democrat so Scarborough didn’t press the issue further or express any surprise that Jones dodged the question.
He is a radical leftist with a Southern accent. All of you who thought he was a compromiser are about to be sorely disappointed if this interview is any indication.
