Touré proves there’s a lefty bubble by denying that it exists; It’s conservatives who are separated from reality
First, if there was ever proof that there’s a lefty bubble, it’s the number of Democratic senators who decided that they should run for president and then stepped foot in Iowa thinking open borders, free health care for illegal aliens, and third-trimester abortion were all winning platforms.
Former MSNBC personality Touré denies that there is such a thing as the lefty bubble, though, because everything lefties believe is right and true, and everything conservatives believe isn’t.
But don’t take Touré’s word for it; he’s citing the “experts” on immigration, climate, guns, and race — probably the very same experts who used to come on MSNBC to share their expertise.
I don’t believe there’s a lefty bubble. Bubble suggests you’re separated from reality. There’s no major belief held by the left that experts say is untrue. Many of the right’s major beliefs—immigration, climate, guns, race—have most experts saying that’s just not true.

I’m on the left, and I think there’s a lefty bubble. All ideological groups have their echo chambers.

Implied objectivity of all 'experts' makes this a foolish statement. And go around asking random blue-flag-waving lefties about the specific numbers of any of those issues. Not that the GOP would be any better, but that's not the point. Opinions uncritically accepted are bad.

*lefty experts indoctrinated at institutions where faculty admit they are lefties
Your confirmation bias is confirmation bias

So-called experts are bitches for the left. Drowned in their own sense of importance, they become addicted to acceptance, which they get from the left whenever they concoct whatever delivers the fix. It’s clear you’re caught in the bubble along with the crazy left. Free yourself!

An expert is someone with a PowerPoint presentation who's 500 miles from his home.

This simply has to be a put-on. If so, kudos on the deadpan delivery. If you're being serious, you have achieved the perfect self-parody, so kudos again.

We’re waiting for the follow-up tweet where he names a handful of the “experts” he relies on for the facts.
