So Jimmy Dore is a comedian who leans rather left. Here’s what the wiki says about him:
James Patrick Anthony Dore (born July 26, 1965) is an American stand-up comedian and political commentator best known for hosting The Jimmy Dore Show. The Chicago Tribune has described his political views as progressive, populist, leftist, anti-establishment and anti-war. He has been a staunch critic of the Special Counsel investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Dore was supportive of the Bernie Sanders campaign in the 2016 Democratic Party presidential primaries, being called “Sanders-obsessed” by The Washington Post. He was critical of Senator Elizabeth Warren for not defending Sanders in the primaries. Dore later asserted that a Hillary Clinton presidency would be worse for progressives and for the United States than a Donald Trump presidency, saying “don’t freak out about a Donald Trump presidency! I think, in fact, my theory is that it’s even better for progressives in the short-term, meaning in the two-year term, and in four years for sure.” The Washington Post in January 2017, that since the presidential election, “Jimmy Dore has lit into Democrats for blaming hackers for their loss, raised doubts about the credibility of intelligence agencies, and seen the heavy hand of war hawks hyping the Russia connection to destabilize Europe and the Middle East.”
So not exactly a Right Winger nor a Trump Supporter. He’s a progressive who has a sense of humor (he is a comedian after all) but with a strong dislike of government abuses.
In this show, he has a real CIA Whistle-blower on who gives the inside dope on just how this CIA in the White House stuff works.
It’s fun to listen to a guy who outed the CIA for dirty tricks under the Bush administration, chuckling about the media calling this CIA op a “Whistle-blower” and then being rewarded. Interesting also is his statement that the CIA guys assigned to the White House get “rewarded” with a promotion when they return to the CIA, which this Rumor Monger has done. (Can we stop calling them a “Whistle-blower” when they are at best a Rumor Monger and at worst a CIA Mole / Operative?)
So here we have 2 guys who have no love of the Republicans, calling out this Soft Coup. When you’ve lost the modestly left wing, your scam isn’t selling…
22 minutes of “laughter through the tears”… though mostly tears… cynicism comedy is like that…
