Jim Webb, a past U.S. Senator for the Democrats, joined the chorus of voices within the party decrying the way the Democrats have abandoned the working class. He also congratulated Prince Donald of Orange on his defeat of career criminal Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton.
“I would like to salute Donald Trump for his tenacity and for the uniqueness of his campaign,” Webb said at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., adding that he hopes the election result will “provide us an opportunity to reject a new form of elitism that has pervaded our societal mechanisms.”
“Behind the veneer of diversity, there is an interlocking elite that has melded business, media and politics in a way we could never before imagine. And many of these people also hold a false belief that they understand a society with which they have very little contact. And nothing has so clearly shown how wrong they are than the recent election of Donald Trump.”
Webb called Trump an outsider who spoke truth to “hard-working people out in flyover land” who have been abandoned by both parties. But he focused much of his critique on the Democrats, whom he said have drifted from their historical position as the “party of Franklin Roosevelt.”
