People on the left really can’t help themselves in a situation like this. Once it starts, it turns into a competition.

MSU fundraiser devolves into Trump-bashing ‘carnival show’

A speaker at a Michigan State University event slammed President Trump Thursday for having a “reptilian brain,” among other critisicms.

The 24th Annual Michigan Political Leadership Program Fundraising Dinner featured speakers from both sides. Patti Doyle, CNN affiliate and political commentator represented the Democrat side with ABC News affiliate and political strategist and analyst Alex Castellanos standing in for the right-leaning perspective. Attendees of the event included public policy students, legislators, lobbying groups, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

According to audio obtained by Campus Reform, Castellanos accused President Trump of being reptilian during the moderated question and answer period: “Donald Trump lies…he has the undistilled reptilian brain. It’s not the rational brain that likes policy. It’s not our emotional-social brain that gets along with people, it’s the reptilian brain.”

The audience had a mixed reaction with some legislators, Republican State Sen. Tom Barrett, and Republican State Rep. Matt Maddock leaving the event. Campus Reform counted about four to eight attendees that left. “I just got up and left,” Sen. Barrett told Campus Reform. “It became a competition of who hates Trump more. When called ‘reptilian,’ it’s an insult to the President and supporters, an insult to me.”

“The governor gave a non-partisan speech,” the senator pointed out. “Then it went into carnival show.”

Sen. Barrett spoke to Campus Reform about possible fallout from the event: “There is a consideration of lawmakers not to attend again.”

Criticizing Trump remained a common theme throughout the rest of the event.

Democrats “are so angry at what Donald Trump is doing to our country,” Doyle said.
