Politico’s Marc Caputo Slams All Trump Voters as Toothless ‘Garbage People’

Politico claims that it is a trusted, serious source for news and that its “journalists” are disinterested witnesses to history. So, why is Politico’s Marc Caputo revealing his bias and calling Trump voters “toothless garbage people”?

Well, because Politico is not an unbiased news source, naturally.

On Tuesday night, after he attended President Donald Trump’s Tampa, Florida, rally, Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked attendees of Trump’s voters.

According to Breitbart News:

CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta tweeted footage of being jeered by Trump supporters and claimed to be “very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt.” Reacting to Acosta’s remarks, Caputo mocked the appearance of Trump rally goers. “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth,” he wrote.

Then Caputo got defensive when people began complaining about his unfair attack:

When the insult sparked swift backlash, Caputo became defensive and condemned his critics for not being more outraged by the crowd’s treatment of Acosta. “Oh I like a good joke…that was just at the expense of others, which I think isn’t quite so funny. Not your best tweet, Marc,” one Twitter user said. “Oh, no!” Caputo replied. “I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off. Someone fetch a fainting couch.”

A bunch of folks piled on slamming Caputo for revealing his hate for Republicans.

Finally, 11 hours after he first ridiculed Trump’s voters, Caputo apologized. Then the Politico “reporter” deleted the tweets attacking Trump’s supporters.

“I need to apologize for tweeting caustic remarks after seeing a reporter berated & abused. Hate begets hate. My comments referred ONLY to those jeering and swearing at the man, not a broad swath of people. But the fault is mine for causing confusion and feeding anger,” he wrote.

But, it’s too late, Marc. You have already revealed your bias, my friend.

It isn’t the first time, either. As Breitbart notes, “Politico similarly came under fire in 2012 when former employee Jonathan Martin (now writing for the New York Times) referred to the Florida panhandle as ‘cracker counties.'”
