Liberals have spent the past five years wallowing in Trump Derangement Syndrome.
They’ve lapped up every single lie told by the so-called mainstream media.
But one liberal comic has the Left hopping mad for what he said about Trump.
Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016 mentally broke the Left.
They convinced themselves his victory was impossible because they refused to listen to anyone outside their echo chamber.
But some liberals have accurately analyzed Trump’s popularity, a lot of which stems from establishment corruption.
One person calling out that corruption is liberal comedian and actor Russell Brand.
A left-wing populist, Brand has been a fierce critic of the dishonest establishment.
He even called out Hillary Clinton’s role in the Russiagate hoax.
That’s why Brand is in the process of being excommunicated by the Left.
He’s lashing out against the establishment and having earnest conversations with conservatives, which is a big no-no for The Left.
Leftist outlet UPROXX just put out a hit piece on Brand, writing:
[L]et’s take a look at what’s going on with Russell over at his YouTube channel. He’s leaning further and further to the right, and that shift is now growing dramatic and (to put it bluntly) conspiratorial. Headlines like “Vaccine APARTHEID: Don Lemon’s Covid BOMBSHELL,” “THIS Is Why You Can’t Trust Big Pharma,” “Vaccine Mandates: An ASSAULT On Your Bodily,” and “SHOCKING Wuhan Evidence: Did Fauci LIE?” do present a certain perspective.
One video (called “So… Trump was RIGHT”) in particular is attracting a lot of attention because Brand, for whatever reason, went on a wild rant about how the 2016 election was all about collusion with Russia.
According to the Left, anyone who questions the lies of the establishment is becoming right wing.
Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald, another dissident leftist, encapsulated the nonsensical worship of the establishment on the part of liberals.
Liberals revere the CIA, FBI, favor internet censorship by the state and by tech monopolies, want their political adversaries put on a no-fly list, and are currently cheering a domestic investigatory Committee with Liz Cheney as Vice Chair. So the Powell stuff is unsurprising: https://t.co/9e1kUla1oj

Brand and other people on the Left haven’t necessarily changed their politics; they’re simply unwilling to become cheerleaders for a corrupt establishment because Orange Man Bad.
The corporate press is actively lying to the American people about so many topics to the point where its credibility has been completely shot.
The last thing the establishment wants is for populists on either side of the aisle to call out the corruption and rot that has festered in D.C. for so long.
That’s why Brand’s “defection” is so dangerous.
