Trump, the total outsider, the vulgar asshole who ran a brand designed to take money from aspirant assholes, may have seemed like a fun alternative, a middle finger to the establishment.

Had it been Cruz/Rubio/Jeb v Hillary, it would have been same old same old, and it would have come down to boring old tench warfare, and the Clinton machine would have held steady because whatever she lost in Obama urban votes an establishment GOP would not have gained in rural votes.

.
Your analysis is pretty much spot on here

That’s really why she fits so well into that equation.
The right wing media has been obsessed with Hillary since 1992.

Sarah H Sanders actually said that the "sentiment" was accurate when she had her "slip of the tongue" about countless FBI agents. It was that and "spur of the moment", even though she was reading it from a piece of paper at the podium.

Saw on CNN this morning that a comedian was elected President of Ukraine in a landslide.

Copycats, we elected one first.

Now Rep Seth Moulton from MA is running for President. This is ridiculous, way too many candidates.

Please don't confuse a comedian with a joke.

I follow Mayor Pete on Instagram and people are freaking out that he posted a picture of kielbasa. It's being cooked for a Polish holiday called Dyngus Day.

Someone even said they wouldn't vote for him because of this. Wtf. Not only is Trump fucked but some Democrats are too.

They said how could he post this on Earth Day no less

On this occasion he seems to be preferable to the band of oligarchs/nationalists that currently pollute Ukrainian politics.

People in general are fucked, regardless of political party/leanings.

Well that's true of course. But you don't see Trump supporters freaking out about his hamberders, do you?

He can eat hamberders 24/7 and lie 24/7. Let's get our priorities straight.

Rudy Giuliani seems to be soulless. That and Trump probably has lots of dirt on him.

What a difference between Rudy circa 2001 and Rudy now.

I went to his book signing for the book he came out with after 9/11. Now I'd throw it in a dumpster. It probably wouldn't even fetch a dollar in a yard sale, except among Trump followers.

I got Rudy wanting to help defeat Hillary, considering their past - but I am baffled at why he's doing what he's doing now.

Showing his true colors? Does Rudy’s giant fake smile (that looks exactly like Trump’s) not throw up red flags for anyone??

I mean... if anything his true colors were as a moderate Republican that would probably be considered a Democrat at this point. He wasn't a hard core conservative, specifically on social issues. You don't get elected mayor in New York City as a true conservative. He also made his name by prosecuting the mob.

He's just totally gone off the deep end and gone all in on the Fox news Kool aid.

Elizabeth Warren wants to wipe out all student loan debt and make public college free...

https://medium.com/@teamwarren/im-ca...f-a246cd0f910f


A few things she says about the high cost of college...
Quote:
Step two is making sure nothing like this ever happens again. We need to fundamentally change the broken system that created the crisis in the first place
Quote:
The cost of college deters people from attending college.
Quote:
The financial strain of attending college — the need to work many hours to cover costs — is a top reason so many people drop out.
This from a former professor who was paid $350,000.00 to teach one class.
I can think of another way to lower the cost of college.
