Brad Parscale Says Trump Would Have Won if He Could Have Just Shown Some Empathy

Close to a year ago, Brad Parscale was telling people that the 2020 Trump campaign was an unstoppable force. But many forces lined up to stop it. This included Parscale himself who was demoted after a disastrous rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was then left the campaign after he was arrested in September.

But now that the election is over, Parscale is back and looking to talk to the media. He made his first appearance Tuesday night with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum. Parscale told the host that Trump would have won in a landslide if only he could have shown some empathy.

“One, two percent possibly we lost of suburban families, right,” Parscale asked. “The men and women in the suburbs. Philly suburbs. Atlanta suburbs. I think that goes to one thing, and I think it was the decision on COVID to go for opening the economy versus public empathy.”

The former campaign strategist continued, “And I think a young family with a young child who were scared to take them back to school wanted to see an empathetic president and an empathetic Republican Party. And I think that—and I said this multiple times, and he chose a different path.”

Parscale closed his comments, “We had a difference on this. I thought we should have public empathy. I think people were scared. And I think if he would have been publicly empathetic, he would have won by a landslide. I think he could have leaned into it instead of run away from it.”
