Not a Bloomberg fan, but he's doing one thing the rest of the field should have been doing for months, and that's generating as much anti-Trump energy as possible. That's almost certainly why he's risen in the polls; Democratic voters see him as laser-focused on beating Trump.
I'm sorry, but every Democratic candidate who defended Tulsi Gabbard looks fucking stupid.
Reddit user Ar3nas77 made this gif and would like you to "spread it like wildfire." https://t.co/xDd4r7CP12
We're not doing this again. People are dying because Hillary Clinton isn't presiding over our national response to a pandemic right now. Yet you need to be "excited" to vote out a fascist who is endangering people because governors didn't compliment him enough. Seriously? twitter.com/DavidKlion/sta…..
The Confederacy did three major things:
2. Undertook actions that endangered its long-term economic prospects.
Ray Ciccarelli will honor the Confederate flag by also proceeding to do all three. twitter.com/MSN/status/127…..
I mean, he released an ad that focused on Obama's economic record, how our recovery started with that record, and contrasted it with Trump's actual economic record, which doesn't match up. The average Democratic voter will love seeing this shit on TV. youtube.com/watch?v=0jTkl2…..
If you've been following all the post-debate assessments by FiveThirtyEight, in every one of them, Democratic voters express more concern with stopping Donald Trump than they care about policy specifics. Bloomberg is completely leaning into stopping Trump energy and it's working.
1. In this thread, I’ll be delving into the psychology of white supremacy to answer the question of why Donald Trump’s base has stuck with him. You may know what white supremacy is ideologically, but you may not see how it could come to be viewed as the most important thing.
Elizabeth Warren is correctly pointing out that Facebook is set to ratfuck Democrats in 2020. Just like they did in 2016. https://t.co/FyeNRfsUwC
So not only does the word of the United States mean absolutely nothing, Donald Trump is just outright saying United States military power can be bought. It doesn’t matter if you’re an authoritarian nation who chopped up a Washington Post columnist. twitter.com/atrupar/status…..
So basically, the Kurds are surrendering their autonomy in the hopes that Assad's forces will prevent a Turkish invasion. What an absolute mess and this was 100% preventable. twitter.com/rafsanchez/sta…..
Trump did one of the most corrupt things you can do with presidential power yesterday. There should be newspaper editorial boards calling for his resignation. Instead, we get reporters calling him "presidential" for finally wearing a mask after 130,000+ Americans have died.
I don't know who needs to hear this, but incrementalism as a viable solution to what we're facing is dead. The GOP is coming for your health care, the fucking Amazon is on fire, the president welcomes foreign interference in our elections, and our country has concentration camps. twitter.com/ABC/status/116…..
@AnnCoulter She's a representative, you barely sentient dipshit.
Even the pilot of Marine One can't look away from how humiliated this motherfucker looks. twitter.com/markknoller/st…..
Mark Zuckerberg hosts clandestine talks with Tucker Carlson and Lindsey Graham to discuss free speech issues and potential partnerships while his social media company completely pushes back against Elizabeth Warren on Twitter. He's chosen a side. Hope you see it too.
We have no compelling reason to take Ratcliffe at his word here, but it's fucking amazing that the only way they can provide cover for Donald Trump is by saying, very publicly, "I can confirm that we don't fucking tell the President shit." twitter.com/ODNIgov/status…..
*analyzes today's news*
Basically, fuck off if you didn't vote for Hillary Clinton.
It is worth emphasizing, relentlessly, that we are going through a full-blown viral pandemic for a really pivotal reason. Donald Trump did something neither Hillary Clinton nor Joe Biden would do: he ignored all the intelligence that suggested coronavirus would be a problem.
For the record, the "civility debate" is officially over. It's over. Donald Trump's supporters are coughing and spitting on people during a viral pandemic that has killed tens of thousands of Americans. Emphasizing civility is absolutely not the answer to this. It's just not.
Flashback to April of 2016: here's then-Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver saying that their campaign would encourage superdelegates to back Bernie Sanders even if Hillary Clinton had won pledged delegates and the popular vote. https://t.co/RpvAMOgCnx
"Alcohol is one of the main causes of rape."
Rapists are the main cause of rape. The moral onus is on men not to rape, not on women to look after each other. I mean, really, that word "causes"...if you think a woman drinking alcohol "causes" a man to rape, that's a goddamn tell. twitter.com/GoldErrrthang/…..
@MittRomney "troubling in the extreme"
Dude, it would constitute unbridled lawlessness. We're not talking about a kid who acted out in the classroom, we're talking about a man with the nuclear codes and the power to shape the judiciary.
Kai Kahele was absolutely going to destroy Tulsi Gabbard in the primary, and she knew it. Tulsi chose to run an extremely anti-Hillary presidential campaign while representing a district that went for Hillary by over 30 points in 2016. twitter.com/KFILE/status/1…..
It's because they view Trump as the symbolic erasure of Barack Obama, who by contrast had redeeming qualities: compassionate, empathetic, intellectual, family man.
But he was a Black man.
To fully erase Obama, they elevated a racist white guy with no redeeming qualities. twitter.com/RadioFreeTom/s…..
