CSUB professor’s analysis of Trump’s speech to Congress

Cal State Bakersfield assistant professor Jeanine Kraybill told Richard Beene that if you were a supporter of President Trump that last week’s speech for Congress was a big night, and that the speech was marked in its tone compared to the president’s Jan. 20 inaugural speech.

“It didn’t paint the dystopian world view that we got in the inaugural,” said Kraybill on her March 2 appearance on “The Richard Beene Show.” “So, I thought the tone of this speech, the tenor, of it was much better.”

Kraybill is a regular contributor to the show, appearing each Thursday in the 2 p.m. hour, and she and Beene differed on whether Trump needed to shift to the center after a divisive campaign to win the White House.

“(Trump’s) speeches have not yet played to the millions of Americans that didn’t vote for him,” Kraybill said. “At some point there will have to be those types of overtures.”

Beene pushed back against that assessment in comparison to former President Barack Obama’s messaging to his base.

“It seemed like in words and deeds that (Obama) was quite content with the base  why would you expect Trump to make overtures to the other side?” Beene asked Kraybill.

“I don’t think we saw from Barack Obama, or George W Bush, real divisive rhetoric toward other groups of people,” Kraybill responded.
