He spends half a day outside his echo chamber, sees the real world, and is terrified by it.

Well that is because of people are vocal about support for Trump. Clinton isn't a popular candidate. She's the establishment. That said, Trump is a farce. He TOO is the establishment but we are too blind to realize it. I am not blind but far too many are. They don't realize he is the same as Clinton in some ways and much more unpresidential.

I don't think that is what Uygur found. He's gut reaction to the vibe he felt in Cleveland (a Dem stronghold of Ohio) was one of anti-establishment. People are pissed off and don't want more of the same. Right or wrong this plays into the Trump narrative whereas Clinton persona screams establishment.

Who the hell is Cenk Uygur? Moreover, he's not even in Cleveland but he doesn't say where he is. Ashtabula? Youngstown? Cincinnati?

I know if I were a Cleveland area resident I would be pissed to have a horde of gun-toting white supremacists, biker gangs, bible-thumpers, gay-bashers, and other assorted bigots invade my town in order to cheer on a demented, narcissistic bully who evokes ghosts of 1930s fascists.

Go hide in your bunker, you seem terrified.

He's a left-leaning journalist who has a program called Young Turks. He blogs and writes opinion pieces, mostly unfavorable to Trump.
