Meanwhile Michelle Obama's book is out..in which she talks about personal things like her miscarriage, going to marriage counseling with her husband , and how much she's still in love/lust with him. I miss them. Still waiting on my Ticketmaster free copy of the book. That will be like the U2 cd, forever.

Fuck, that sucks. If you're going to make yourself that big of a voice, you better not have *any* skeletons in your closet and you better not fuck up. Otherwise you do waaaay more harm that good you ever could have done.

EDIT: Or it might be a setup? Some things about this are weird, based on what I'm currently reading.

I think the Democratic field already has like 25 people in it, no joke.

There will be at least one woman on that ticket, you can count on it.

Trump is in full meltdown mode on Twitter about Mueller. I thought Trump was a stable genius, he seems very unstable to me.

My purple state! Finally...

Arizona:

Elected Kyrsten Sinema for Senator
Elected a Dem for the House seat that McSally abandoned to take on Sinema
Elected a Dem for the House seat that Sinema abandoned to run for Senate
Elected a Dem for Secretary of State (elections, 2nd in Executive succession)
Elected a Dem for Superintendent of Education
Elected Dems for 5 of 9 US House seats
Brought the state House and Senate as close to Dem controlled as they have been in years.


Wow

Yeah, that's what I was referring to last night. No way do I think the man should run for any office higher than a local one at the moment, but with that being said, it's not like this is the first time someone involved with that situation was wrongly arrested for something.

That being said, please don't think for a second that I don't take domestic violence accusations seriously. I very much do and if/when something comes out pointing to Wohl just trying to pull an ISIS (taking claim for something he had nothing to do with) and there is evidence Avenatti did something, believe me, I'll be right there with everyone else turning my back on him.

Whatever happened to #morongate anyway? Did they just concede defeat?

They are apparently doubling down... only they don't have an 11, and the hand is over.

I've seen that commercial a few times on TV. It's hilariously dumb.

E

I don't think we've ever talked about her on here. How about Lucy McBath. Just elected to Congress in GA. Flipped a seat that's been red for a long long time. Gingrich's former seat. Her son Jordan Davis was murdered in FL at a gas station in 2012. By a white guy who said the music he and his friends were playing in their car was too loud. It was a famous case (stand your ground case), I watched a documentary about it on HBO. Thankfully the guy did go to prison, life sentence.

She decided to run after Parkland. She's also a two time breast cancer survivor, so affordable health care is also a big issue for her.

Ohhhhhhh, man, I remember seeing a story about that case on an episode of "20/20" once. Yeah. It was so infuriating to hear that "stand your ground" nonsense being pulled-we desperately need to reevaluate that law, because far too many people seem to abuse that concept and use it as an excuse. I was glad to see that the guy was convicted, though. Will have to check out that documentary sometime.

Yay for McBath winning her race .

In CA 39, Gil Cisneros has now pulled ahead of Young Kim. This means Orange County, is now entirely represented by Dems in Congress. Also, of the 53 total CA representatives only 8 will be GOP. I love my state.

As an Asian woman she may have more intersectionality.

Haha, Acosta got his press pass back by a judge's order. Someone send a bunch of Big Macs over to the Oval Office stat.

The judge was a federal judge appointed by Trump. Trump's head must be exploding.
