On Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur attempted to speak to a supporter of presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), pinpointing a potential voter outside the democratic socialist’s rally.
However, the man Tur approached turned out to be a proud supporter of President Donald Trump. And when he was asked if he thought Sanders had any appeal, the Trump backer ripped apart the Left’s ideology as “anti-growth,” “anti-family,” “anti-American,” and “anti-life,” clearly surprising the MSNBC reporter.
“Can you tell us who you voted for?” asked Tur.
“Donald John Trump,” the voter proudly told the anchor.
“You voted for Donald John Trump. Look at that,” said Tur. “Bernie Sanders is not appealing to you?”
“The whole ideology would be destructive to the country,” the man replied. “It’s anti-growth. It’s anti-family. It’s anti-American. And, as a Roman Catholic, it’s anti-life.”

The interview wasn’t the only shocking moment for MSNBC on Tuesday, either. As noted by The Daily Wire, a Sanders backer told the network on live air that she shifted her vote to the Vermont senator because of MSNBC’s alleged biased treatment of Sanders.
“I want to say, the reason I went for Bernie is MSNBC,” the voter told MSNBC’s Ari Melber.
“I think it is completely cynical to say that he has lost 50% of his vote from the last time when there were two candidates,” the woman said. “Now there are multiple, wonderful candidates that would be great candidates and people that we could unify behind.”
“The kind of ‘Stop Bernie’ cynicism that I heard from a number of people… It made me angry, so I said, ‘Bernie’s got my vote,’” she added.
“This is such an interesting point,” Melber reacted. “What you’re saying is, and we take criticism because we’re journalists, you’re saying that hearing from people, whether it’s guests, contributors, the conversations you’ve heard, that you felt were designed to tear down Senator Sanders, actually endeared him to you.”
“Absolutely, I could have chosen several candidates, but that’s what pushed me over the edge for Bernie,” the voter answer.
President Trump dominated in New Hampshire on Tuesday, absolutely crushing past incumbent presidents’ numbers in the primary by tens of thousands of votes.

“The Democrat story in New Hampshire is the continued dominance of big government socialist policies and the success of their standard bearer, Bernie Sanders,” Parscale said in a statement, as noted by The Daily Wire.
“No matter which Democrat eventually emerges from their months-long dumpster fire of a primary process, we know the contrast will be President Trump’s record of accomplishment and optimistic view of the future versus Democrats and their socialist, job-killing agenda,” the campaign manager added.
