Dick Morris, a former top political adviser to then-President Bill Clinton, doesn’t see much good coming from a second Joe Biden term, but he does see a lot of positives coming from a second Donald Trump term.
Morris tells Newsmax that, contrary to the left’s characterization of “MAGA Republicans” as political extremists, their leader is the one who can bring together both left and right.
“You don’t need somebody warm and fuzzy and nice to build the coalition,” Morris told Newsmax’s “Saturday Report.” “You need somebody strong and independent and determined to resist their propaganda and barrel through their vulnerabilities and expose the center and talk about the virtue of the positions that the left and right of sharing in common.”
Morris believes that there are several issues that both sides agree on, and despite the left’s efforts to maintain power by attacking former President Trump, he remains a unifying force that can bring the divided country together, the outlet reported.
“On a host of those issues many, many more on the left and the right essentially agree, and they disagree with the establishment that’s in the center that wants to protect those powers,” Morris said in his interview with host Rita Cosby. “Donald Trump is uniquely positioned to deal with that. He gets all or most of his money from small donations. He doesn’t get much from big donors, so he’s independent financially.
“He doesn’t like the people in the power structures. He hates the FDA. He hates the CDC because he’s dealt with them. He has all kinds of negative things to say about the intel community, because they persecuted him, and he has the independence and the standing and the power to forge this relationship between the left and the right,” Morris continued.
“And I think he should be talking about a lot of issues with both of them [having] the same thing in common and make common cause against the establishment and against the center,” he told Cosby.
The former Clinton adviser-turned-Trump whisperer has recently written a great deal about “the politics of fusion.”
“We use nuclear fission to generate power in nuclear energy where — and we do the same thing in politics — where we split an atom, it splits other atoms, and it causes a chain reaction that leads to an explosion,” Morris told Cosby. “That’s how we govern our politics. We divide. We used the division to generate energy.”
However, he continued. there is “also nuclear fusion — where bring stuff together, and you combine two helium atoms, and that generates a best amount of power and very few byproducts.
“It seems to me that the political world is round. Not linear. It’s not right, right-center, center-left, left on the continuum. It’s a circular process,” he continued.
“The left and the right agree with each other on a lot of stuff, and they disagree with the center, the establishment, the deep state, the surveillance society — call it what you will,” Morris added.
“And I think that there are there is a tremendous politics here: A fusion of the left and the right. And Bobby Kennedy, I think is opening the door to it, and I think Donald Trump could walk through it,” he said.
Last week, Morris suggested during an interview with Newsmax TV that Trump should use the establishment’s nervousness about a potential 2024 presidential campaign by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to his advantage, including during his upcoming CNN town hall. According to Morris, Kennedy’s campaign has struck a chord with the left of the political establishment and he’s already polling at 19 percent against President Joe Biden.
“I think the anger is just nervousness,” Morris told “John Bachman Now.” “I have some advice for Trump that I’d like to give you over the air, and I’ll give to him over the phone. I believe that Robert Kennedy has struck a chord that could be enormously attractive to potential voters for Trump, particularly those who watch CNN.”
