Yeah, this seems pretty legit since they shielded any actual visiting time and then came out and said how "Everyone expressed how great the president and presidency is!!!" If I had been a victim, I would have met with him and spit in his face.

Why, despite being the downfall of Western society, the internet is still totally worth it - a play in 3 acts.

My best guess is - being part of the Dolphin's organization, which is owned by the Soul Cycle guy who is having his billionaire buddies fundraise for Trump. (great timing bud).

I went to his Twitter and saw that he was sharing tweets about how Obama should have been blamed for Sandy Hook and the other 23 mass shootings during his terms.

So seems like a shitty guy yeah.

dan marino certainly isn't sharing any political tweets (at least not in 2019, i read his entire timeline back that far), unless you count a post remembering the victims of parkland on the one-year anniversary.

the owner guy didn't have any stake in the team whatsoever until 2008, more than eight years after marino played his last game.

headache's post still doesn't make any sense at all.

Saying that a policy is racist and why it is racist is different than saying "everyone who voted in 2016 for Trump is racist" or "if you're thinking of voting for Trump again you're a moron and you're a racist."

And worrying about non voters is a pipe dream. You should always try to turn people out to vote who have never voted before. The democratic candidate absolutely should try to turn out non voters - but relying upon that is a recipe for diaster. It's like relying on the youth vote. Great in theory, horrible idea in practice.

"Give them something to vote for" is a great thought.

If the shit that's going on right now isn't enough to drive people to the polls, nothing is. Nobody can possibly make the "they're all the same" argument this time around. Anyone who doesn't vote to remove this asshole is as complicit as those who vote for him.

This isn't to downplay policy and the importance of ideas. We need fresh ideas and fresh candidates and not the same old retreads.

The single most important issue in 2020 is to win.

He can not be allowed to return.

Heh. Ya think, right?!
Some of the more poisonous raw sewage ever heaped upon this country and world!

*Trump, I expect to botch up the name of a town. Even when he's reading it off a teleprompter. But the fact that Biden did the same on Twitter is just...sad.
Heh.
Oh, man, can't believe Biden got that wrong! :facepalm: pathetic!

I didn't know Beto was a Hispanic name. Is Mexican origin? Only cause NYC has had a large Hispanic population (particular Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and later Mexicans and people from Central and South America) for decades! And i've never heard the name spoken or in print.

Show footage of them getting into elevators to avoid discussing Trump's racist tweets and attacks on members of Congress. In Texas and Ohio, show the footage from CNN in which Tapper said that they'd tried to reach out and invite Republicans in those states to come on TV to discuss the recent mass shootings...only to get no response.

And then while they're doing that, the Democrats that are running can and should also do everything imaginable to genuinely engage with voters everywhere they go. Attend any events and meetings voters are having, be out there openly talking on various media outlets about the issues affecting their states, stuff like that.

All of that will definitely light a fire under voters, and make their choice abundantly clear as well.
THIS.
So many good ways to remind people of their "track record", Moonlit !

I think they need to do both - remind people of what drumph, and the Repuglicans have done ( or obstructed), and talk about their ideas.

Getting Trump out of The White House is the ultimate imperative!

And I recently thought i saw some article headlines about how The Senate could be won by the Dems.
