Even though ABC spent part of their Sunday marveling at chants of “we love you” at Trump rallies, CBS Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan thought she was confronting Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel with accusations that President Trump’s supporters weren’t enthusiastic about him. Not only was Brennan schooled by McDaniel, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell later warned of the “shy Trump voter” gaining courage.
In the midst of her contentious interview with the RNC Chairwoman, Brennan recalled that McDaniel had invested a lot of funding into the Republican Party ground game all across the country. But, without evidence, she tried to cast doubt on how much Trump supporters backed their president. “If your voters are so excited about President Trump, why haven't they shown up yet,” she sneered.
While McDaniel was explaining how Republicans prefer to vote on Election Day (a historical fact, not to mention data shows that Republicans were catching up to Democrats in early voting), Brennan rudely interrupted her guest and asked: “Why?”
McDaniel then schooled Brennan on how Republicans save their enthusiasm for Election Day and show up in big numbers.
