Democrats, Media Panic Over Potential Howard Schultz Presidential Run

Howard Schultz's announcement that he might run for president as a "centrist independent" in 2020 has been met with widespread disgust and anger by Democrats and media allies.

The former Starbucks CEO is an ex-Democrat who left the party over its lurch to the left, and Democrats are frothing at the mouth that the billionaire could split the anti-Trump vote in 2020 and send the 45th president back to the White House.

Anyone watching cable or network news could see the talking points were in: If Schultz runs, Trump wins.

Democrats like Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), Rep. Katie Hill (D., Calif.) and Julian Castro said his efforts would catapult Trump back into the White House, while CNN "conservative" commentator Ana Navarro said his running would help Trump and "maybe Putin."

"Majority Report" host Sam Seder said Schultz didn't "get to be king just because he's so rich," and liberal MSNBC analyst Karine Jean-Pierre said his actions were "very dangerous" and "we cannot allow this to happen." Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden tweeted she would boycott Starbucks and called Schultz's "vanity project" a "disgusting" thing that would destroy democracy.
