MSNBC anchor Katy Tur has a knack for accidentally running into Trump voters on the campaign trail. In a recent trip to East Los Angeles ahead of Super Tuesday, Tur asked a local Latino voter who he and his family would be supporting in the primary. He said Bernie, but couldn't tell Tur why.
"Por que Bernie Sanders?" Tur asked him.
"They don't know, but they're going to be supporting Bernie Sanders," an interpreter told her.
MSNBC went to East Los Angeles to ask Latino people who they’re voting for. The first guy they featured said he’s voting for Bernie but doesn’t know why. The host asks if his daughter is the reason why... He says no his daughter is voting for Trump. ?????? pic.twitter.com/qHqRdQgyOU— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) March 3, 2020
Tur tried to get some kind of an answer out of him and asked him if maybe it was his daughter who was leading the charge for Bernie. He admitted, somewhat ashamedly by the looks of it, that his daughter would actually be voting for President Trump.
Why? "The economy," he sighed.
Tur's previous attempts to find Bernie bros have also gone sour. In Nashua, New Hampshire last month, she turned up to a Sanders rally to find the only Trump voter in the vicinity. And he was more than happy to tell her audience why he was supporting POTUS and not Bernie's socialist agenda.
"The whole ideology would be destructive to the country," the proud Trump supporter explained. "It's anti-growth, it's anti-family, it's anti-American. And as a Roman Catholic, it's anti-life."
