On Monday’s New Day show, CNN White House correspondent John Harwood pushed the liberal trope that people support Republicans out of ignorance as he asserted that employees of corporations who are siding with liberals on voting laws are “better educated” than those Republicans try to “mislead” about the issue.
The show spent part of a segment reacting to an op-ed Texas Senator Ted Cruz published in the Wall Street Journal criticizing corporations that have supported Democratic criticisms of Georgia’s voting law. Co-host Brianna Keilar set up the segment by reading a threat by Senator Cruz that Republicans might be less responsive to lobbying by corporations that so publicly side with Democrats on the issue.
Even though there were substantial improvements made to the voting system in Georgia as a result of the new law, Harwood glossed over that argument as he accused Senator Cruz of just being “dishonest” on the issue:
The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.
It’s just so dishonest — the argument he — remember, Ted Cruz is one of the people who fostered the big lie after the election. Now, he is compounding that with another lie which is making the argument that what’s happening in the state of Georgia and states around the country is not about reacting to Donald Trump’s defeat to try to constrain voting procedures. He’s pretending in this article that that wasn’t what it was about at all — it’s expanding voting opportunities. We all know the law is complicated and long, but it takes control away from the officials who certified that Joe Biden won the election.
Also not mentioned was that, in the absence of a new law, there would have been no legal authority to continue using the drop boxes that were first used because of the pandemic last year which liberals have been so eager to continue.
Harwood then got to suggesting that people who vote for Democrats are smarter than those who vote Republican as he added:
