Seeing the reporting today on Matt Lauer...

Makes me recall when a woman was raped in a dressing room by Donald Trump, and it was a two day story. You know, as it would have been for any other president.

Trump has survived because of corruption.

His campaign and presidency survives because the media loves him. He is ratings gold, which equals $$$$.

This 'both-sideism' is what could end up ruining our democracy. Not FoxNews, everyone knows they are a propaganda channel.

It's CNN, ABC, NBC painting each political event as something that is done by both sides.

Trump sent a letter to congress saying he cannot be impeached. Instead of running the story on how this is completely fucking nuts, and illegal, we get a story on "Are Dems pushing impeachment too far too soon????"

Poor Lindsey Graham melting down on twitter today. Did he not realize that eventually Trump would destroy something he cares about too? Being his little bitch over the last two years didn't make him immune.

Trump looks out only for Trump.

I feel absolutely horrible for the Kurds, and our military people over there having to stand down and watch Turkey + ISIS wipe them off the face of the Earth.

Where is Mattis now? This is why he resigned, because of how Trump was treating the Kurds prior to this. Hope his book sales are worth the silence and being a coward.

They would be hung.

Elizabeth Warren now says she will not take $ from big-donor fundraisers in the general election. She had previously made the commitment only in respect of the primaries.

I am starting to wonder whether she and Bernie are cutting a deal in the background.

Very interesting notion.

possible - I push all of my supporters to you for a VP spot...

I hope that isn't the case. Usually VP pick is younger for an older candidate, to ease people's mind. and I Would like to see a Warren/Abrams ticket to be honest.

And maybe not VP, maybe a cabinet position. That would be cool.

He won't be her VP. Not only would that ticket be too old but a VP is pretty much a meaningless position, particularly when it comes to policy-making. Why would he even want it?

Very true. Trying to think of the cabinet position that would appeal to him that would allow him to make a difference.
Just spit-ballin' cause i don't see Bernie handing the torch without some sort of benefit to him.

So Pat Robertson is saying that Trump is "in danger of losing the mandate of heaven."

Not sure if evangelicals still listen to Pat Robertson, but this whole Syria thing isn't playing very well with mainstream republicans.

Evangelicals only care about the Supreme Court. Syria may as well be on Mars.

And right on cue...

Quote:
One of Donald Trump’s most prominent Christian supporters will argue in a book due out before the 2020 general election that American evangelicals “have a moral obligation to enthusiastically back” the president.

...

According to the book's description, obtained by POLITICO, the original title for the book was “Render to God and Trump,” a reference to the well-known biblical verse, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.” The message from Jesus in Matthew 22, has been used in contemporary politics to justify obedience to government — or in the case of Reed’s book, to Trump.

Story Continued Below

Regnery Publishing confirmed the book’s existence but said the title is “For God and Country: The Christian case for Trump.” The publisher declined to comment on the reason for the title change.

In his book, Reed will “persuasively” argue evangelicals have a duty to defend the incumbent Republican leader against “the stridently anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, and pro-abortion agenda of the progressive left,” according to the description.
Just like gzus would do!!

His campaign raised 125 million last quarter

Where is this $$$ coming from ?

By contrast Warren raised something like 25 million, as did Bernie and Biden

On a side note. It is kinda frustrating to have such a long primary season. If you add up the money given just this quarter by the top 10, It's about 125 million. per quarter.
It just feels like this drains supporters money for such a long period before the general even starts.

Hoping that It really starts to narrow sharply soon. We need a top 5 and go from there.
And then hopefully it will become clear early on in the primaries who will be the nominee.
Start building up the war chest to fight the Marmalade Monstrosity.

I think Warren is the strongest candidate of my lifetime at the moment.

She hits on the liberal policies i support. She’s one of the few to propose tackling corruption.

I honestly can’t really find anything “wrong” with her

While Obama was a rockstar, Warren has the substance and soul to reshape our democracy

This is particularly heinous by even US foreign policy standards.


Trump's essentially given the green light for ISIS to properly regroup and guarantee that the civil war goes on for at least another 5 years, all whilst destroying the only progressive force in the region.

He would do it if he knew it meant he could fully bring his supporters into the loop and energize them. Because Bernie definitely actually believes in his message and would rather have his message in the POTUS chair than his own butt.
