A liberal trap is a deceptive, and often dimwitted, question designed to elicit a response that can be taken out of context in order to criticize someone, for liberal gain.

Examples

  • The liberal activist Katie Couric attempted to spring a liberal trap on Sarah Palin during the 2008 Presidential campaign by asking the candidate to produce an impromptu list of newspapers she reads. The question had no apparent significance, as many highly productive people lack time for newspapers, and the internet is a more efficient source of information anyway.
