Seth MacFarlane: Left ‘cried wolf’ too much pre-Trump


Actor Seth MacFarlane says liberal hyperbole may have left voters ignoring their warnings about President-elect Donald Trump.

“This will not be a popular observation, and I don’t even know if I subscribe to it myself,” he tweeted Wednesday following Trump’s White House win.

{mosads}“But it can be argued that the Left expended so much energy over the last several years being outraged over verbal missteps, accidental innuendo, ‘tasteless’ tweets (see Justine Sacco) etc. in the name of clickbait, that when the real threat to equality emerged, we’d cried wolf too many times to be heard.”

Trump astounded observers worldwide Tuesday by defeating Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for the Oval Office.

The Republican’s victory was unexpected as Clinton lead him by roughly 3 points in the national polling averages as Election Day dawned that morning.

Trump frequently asserted pollsters were misreading his voter support as he raced against Clinton on the campaign trail.

The billionaire and his surrogates also repeatedly criticized political correctness, arguing it had weakened U.S. strength at home and abroad.

Clinton tried portraying Trump’s rhetoric as too divisive and unpredictable for a potential president before conceding to him early Wednesday.
