If Tennesseans had any unanswered questions about how far to the left Phil Bredesen is, look no further than the two musicians holding a concert to benefit his campaign tonight.
Ben Folds, who proudly supported Bernie Sanders, will be joined by Jason Isbell, who made headlines when he slammed Christian voters who supported President Trump saying, “God is gone from those people.”
Bredesen’s latest embrace of folks who have gone out of their way to insult President Trump and his supporters is part of a disturbing trend. Earlier this month, a Tennessee Democratic Spokesman and former Bredesen staffer was caught calling Trump voters “idiots” and racists, and just days ago, during a Bredesen sponsored prayer breakfast, Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen told a crowd of supporters he wished Marsha Blackburn would jump off a bridge.
“Despite Bredesen’s moderate act, he continues to embrace people who have made it a habit of insulting the Tennessee voters who proudly supported President Trump,” said NRSC Spokesman Michael McAdams. “Today’s fundraiser is the latest example that Phil Bredesen is completely out-of-touch with a majority of Tennesseans.”
