“I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice,” he said. “There’s no reason it has to be.”
Billionaire Stephen Ross has come under fire in recent days for the simple fact that he supports Trump. He planned a fundraiser for Trump at his Long Island home, and some people in the liberal media are not taking the news well.
On MSNBC, a regular contributor named Elie Mystal called for pitchforks and torches.

‘I want pitchforks and torches’ outside Trump booster’s home: MSNBC contributor
MSNBC contributor and legal blog editor Elie Mystal called for “pitchforks and torches” outside of the home of a wealthy President Trump supporter during a Thursday night interview.
Appearing on All In With Chris Hayes, Mystal slammed billionaire Stephen Ross for his support of Trump, asserting that the current trending boycotts of his businesses didn’t satisfy him. “I have no problem on shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate,” he said. “I mean I go further. I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons.”
Mystal continued his tirade by saying that the oceanic New York vacation home of Ross should not be a safe haven. “I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice,” he said. “There’s no reason it has to be. There’s no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood.”
Nothing says “peacefully understood” voices like a mob carrying torches and pitchforks.

The fact that this rhetoric is being used in the same week a mob made violent threats outside Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky home shows that the left has no intention of toning anything down.
The panel on The Five analyzed this and some other recent cable news moments. My favorite part is Donny Deutsch of MSNBC saying that swing voters must be “shamed” into not supporting Trump. Watch:
Isn’t it fascinating how none of these liberal media types seem interested in Russia anymore?
