Fundraising Dinner at Michigan State Turns Into Trump-Bashing Fest

“Donald Trump lies…he has the undistilled reptilian brain”

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.

Ah yes, Fake News. Democrats are angry at what Donald Trump is doing for our country. And they’ll stay that way, because DJT isn’t about to change.

As always, 2016 was the best election ever.

I’d have left too. These funds raisers are to obtain money for the sponsors. If they allow such behavior how do they expect their alumni of the opposite persuasion to write checks? Cornell behaves similarly, asking for money with stories and ads to alumni that feature students and programs that support leftist causes, particularly “social justice”. That is then little incentive for their conservative and often older and richer alumni to contribute on giving days. Any good business person knows that politics and good business don’t mix and that being blatantly political at work means losing some customers and revenue.
