Former TV CEO Says Straight White Males Should be Prohibited from Voting to “Save” Democracy



A former TV CEO said this week that the federal government should “prohibit straight white males from voting” in U.S. elections as a way to “save” democracy.

PJ Media reports Steven Clifford, author and former CEO of the King Broadcasting Company and National Mobile Television, said during an interview that he believes 85 percent of straight white males supported Donald Trump in 2016, which leads him to think that “the only hope for democracy in America” is to prevent them from “exercising the franchise.”

Clifford also urged Democrats running in the midterm elections to explain their policy proposals to voters rather than focus on the reasons they oppose President Trump.
