Washington Post columnist and MSNBC analyst Eugene Robinson said that supporters of President Donald Trump need to be “deprogrammed” and likened them to “members of a cult” on Tuesday.
Robinson spoke with Nikole Hannah-Jones, lead writer of the “1619 Project,” about how to begin deprogramming Trump supporters.
“We have, there are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed,” Robinson asked. “It’s as if they are members of a cult, the Trump-ist cult, and have to be deprogrammed. Do you have any idea how we start that process, much less complete it?”
