Shit. You're right. Michael Moore explained it all. It's not Bernie supporters. Everyone is angry Farmers losing their family farm, manufacturing workers losing their jobs, single parents working two jobs... Everyone.

I think we can all agree that Twitter is full of farmers, factory workers and multiple job single parents ranting about the oligarchy.

Totally disqualifying. Why doesn’t she just murder people herself?

She should resign now.

25 years ago everybody would get a thick book with literally everyone in the entire city's name, street address, and phone number printed in it delivered to their doorstep annually. this person is the leader of one of the largest unions in the city of las vegas. you could press the 0 button (or turn the rotary dial) and literally tell the operator "i want to speak to so-and-so in whatever city" and after maybe a couple questions at most to make sure it was the right person, you could be connected to them in minutes.

what exactly do you think bernie sanders should do about a random anonymous reddit user posting some information that anyone in 1995 could have found out with one phone call?

Because there wasn't a rather insane rant claiming pretty much that everyone else is wrong and stupid? But yes, I've flipped my fucking mind.

A man who, while having his faults, was a successful and popular 12 year mayor in a very liberal city, who created Everytown and has been very instrumental in bankrupting the NRA, and was key in flipping 23 congressional seats blue in 2018? Same as Donald Trump. Same thing. Same guy.

But I've flipped my mind.

Liz Warren? Too far right.

But I've flipped my mind.

The candidate himself has felt the need to actually come out and make a half-assed statement about online harassment (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKBN20802P). But call attention to that? Pssht you're just buying into the CNN fake news bullshit man. Stop flipping your mind.

I was very happy to read this from her. Prior to this admission she did strike me as someone who could never compromise and never be wrong on anything.

I love that she does speak her mind. She’s wonderful in congressional hearings, she’s able to use social media to connect that others cannot.

But there are times where she is so smug or condescending it’s tough to follow. Nothing is ever black and white in politics.

Also happy to see her get a frenchie. Wonderful dogs despite some poor genetics (always some health issue). Of course it’s a $5000 dog, but a congress salary can easily afford that

I admit I haven't been able to do a fulsome point by point comparison, but if we are just talking about policies, Bloomberg's position strike me as further to the left of Klobuchar and Buttigieg (not sure about Biden, but he's irrelevant anyway).

I mean aside from the obvious fact that he's a billionaire and they are not, what is the opposition to him on a policy basis IF you consider yourself a centrist who is willing to vote for one of the other two?

If you're a Warren or Sanders voter, at least you can point to some substantial differences.

Bloomberg strategy is to beat Trump. To win.

America is about WINNING. It's why Trump just blasted his way through the primaries, he ignited their base because at the end all they cared about was beating the liberals. Of course there were undertone of racism (maybe not so much under), but the GOP just wins at any cost.

I think one of the reasons why the black community is throwing more support behind Bloomberg as Joe fades, is because they want someone who can beat Trump. Just win baby.

This election has to be one single issue for the Dems, BEAT TRUMP.

Do your policy thing once you've gotten into office.

I cannot for the life of me fathom any sentient being watching what Trump is doing and saying day in and day out and conclude that, ya know what, some of the D nominees are just as bad!

We as a species are total idiots.

it's nice to know that leftists have determined that liberals are the real enemies.

he's clearly talking about elected officials and public figures, not just random "libs", but by all means don't let a little thing like context get in the way of the daily fearmongering.
