QUOTE OF THE DAY: Billionaire Liberal Rocker Bono Explains Blue-Collar Rage to Liberals

Social media users have rediscovered a Washington Post op-ed in which columnist Fareed Zakaria interviewed an unlikely authority on European populism.

WHAT HAPPENED

In response to 2016’s populist wave, which included the rise of former President Donald Trump in the U.S. and Euroskeptics across the Atlantic, Zakaria wrote “I wanted to understand Europe’s populism. So I talked to Bono.”

  • “Europe needs to go from being seen as a bore, a bureaucracy, a technical project, to being what it is: a grand, inspiring idea,” the U2 frontman told Zakaria.

FAST FORWARD

The U.K. exited the European Union last year under Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and, despite losing the presidency, Trump is the presumptive frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
