Iconic author and cultural critic Camille Paglia predicts President Donald Trump is headed toward winning re-election in 2020, thanks to a Democratic Party in disarray and American mistrust of partisan elite New York media.
Paglia’s remarks came during a “Times Talks” discussion moderated by New York Times columnist Frank Bruni. Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen joined Paglia in a discussion about “the Donald Trump era.”
Paglia scolded the Democratic Party for failing to do the “soul searching” required after losing an election.
“It is incumbent upon the defeated party to pull itself together, or else we’re going to get the reelection of the present administration,” she said, adding that Trump is heading for election because “the Democrats have overplayed their hand.”
“What the Democrats needed to do, and the major media, Frank, needed to do was to do some soul-searching,” she added.
