Hey, Wisconsin, this is what Fox News thinks of you

Cited in this Friday Washington Post media roundup, this is how Wisconsin came to the mind of Fox’s “The Five” host Jesse Watters:

“This is how the forgotten men and women of America talk at the bar,” he said. “If you’re at a bar, and you’re in Wisconsin, and you think they’re bringing in a bunch of Haiti people, or El Salvadorians, or people from Niger, this is how some people talk. Is it graceful? No. Is it polite or delicate? Absolutely not. Is it a little offensive? Of course it is.”
Except Trump is the President.

Maybe Gov. Walker will defend our state against such ugly stereotyping that says we're The Dog Whistle State?


Nah:

I also see nothing in response [to Trump's "shithole" smear] on either of Scott Walker’s Twitter feeds. I guess the brain trust’s polling isn’t done yet.

That ought to help bring in the millennials. Especially people of color. "Welcome to WI: Home of Governor Scott Walker and lots of drunken bigots (Fox News)."

This is just how dumb politics and our media have become. They are disconnected to ordinary peoples' reality.

Scott Walker's got his dream job, and he's backed by those that hardly represent ordinary Wisconsinites. He was a complete flop when trying to run for President, yet why we supposed to have this faith in running our State, which stats (but not our media) have shown that Walker is a complete failure.

In 2010 and 2012 you could drive through northern Wisconsin and it would be all Walker signs, yet now folks are seeing just how much Walker has done nothing for them.

I sure hope the people up North do something about that in November. Get some pride and say "ENOUGH", already.

By the way Jesse Watters (Coastal jerk who makes big money and wouldn't be caught dead in small-town America), the only reason racist like that are "forgotten" are because THE PEOPLE WITH TALENT AND DECENCY LEAVE SHITHOLES LIKE THAT AND DON'T COME BACK.

The new Toyota plant announced for Alabama cost the state only 700 million. If Gubernatorial candidates can't keep up the pressure they don't deserve to run. Up north people get it. The volume needs to be louder. 4 billion for what?

Walker is weak. His rhetoric has always been weak. His Trump-Hole tactics are weak. Wasting the taxpayer's money on Billionaire donors is weak. The 11 wealthiest Wisconsinites getting 2 million a year in tax rebates is weak.

Who is organizing for gerrymandering and campaign finance reform?
Who's getting out the word out north?
