IMO, you could cut this field down pretty easily right now to:

Warren
Castro
Booker
Harris
Buttigieg
Biden
Sanders

And maybe give a chance to one of the experienced candidates who didn't make the first debate like Bullock, and you wouldn't miss much of anything.


I like Yang a lot too, feel like he didn't get nearly enough air time last night. You could tell he has a plan and has his shit together.

Nobody has any clue what the hell you’re talking about, but while we’re on the topic of blatantly racist shit, how about Don Trump Jr. retweeting an alt-right troll who was leading a coordinated effort by bots to pump racist misinformation out into the ether that Kamala Harris somehow wasn’t really black.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/28/u...la-harris.html

Now I’ve read the bots may have been set up by a fringe white supremacist/neo-Nazi group. Whoever did it, WTF is the president’s son amplifying this kind of racist, birtherism-redux bullshit?

Not at all surprised that Waiver is too stupid to understand that poor people need health care, that education helps people avoid poverty and homelessness, and that he completely glossed over ample talk about wage inequality, unions, etc. which all speak to the problem of the haves vs. the have nots.

But whatever. He hears what he wants to hear.

And yes, you heard a fringe candidate suggest GMI. Oh noes! Know what state actually has a version of GMI, Waiver? Any guesses?

I think Waiver can’t wait to vote (again) for his Cheeto Jesus. 23 sexual assault allegations, kidnapping and chucking children in cages, and obstruction of justice and all.

Wtf are you talking about. I give a 50 year evolution of how the gop has become the party of segregationists and you respond about homelessness.

Because he's flailing. He's got no conception of real history.

York: Three 'troubling developments' show anti-Trump resistance growing more toxic

'...He also highlighted a weekend op-ed in the New York Times in which a London human rights professor effectively called on people to "doxx" Border Patrol agents, arguing such steps are needed to stop "mass atrocity" from occurring at the border.

On top of that, York lamented the Antifa attack on conservative journalist Andy Ngo as he covered a Proud Boys rally in Portland, Ore.

Video from the incident doesn't show what precipitated the attack or what followed it, but Ngo can be seen being kicked, punched, doused with a milkshake and sprayed with an unknown substance. ...'

Conservative NYT columnist called 'white nationalist' after blasting 2020 Dems for pro-illegal immigrant policies

'...In a scathing piece published on Friday, Bret Stephens argued that voters see Democrats as the "party that makes too many Americans feel like strangers in their own country" and that "puts more of its faith and invests most of its efforts" in illegal immigrants instead of American citizens.

"They speak Spanish. We don’t. They are not U.S. citizens or legal residents. We are. They broke the rules to get into this country. We didn’t. They pay few or no taxes. We already pay most of those taxes. They willingly got themselves into debt. We’re asked to write it off," Stephens elaborated. "They don’t pay the premiums for private health insurance. We’re supposed to give up ours in exchange for some V.A.-type nightmare. They didn’t start enterprises that create employment and drive innovation. We’re expected to join the candidates in demonizing the job-creators, breaking up their businesses and taxing them to the hilt."

The Never-Trump conservative opinion writer specifically called out the ten candidates on Thursday's debate who all raised their hands vowing that their healthcare plans would cover illegal immigrants in the U.S. as well as the candidates who favored the decriminalization of border crossings on Wednesday's debate. Stephens mocked Spanish-speaking candidates Beto O'Rourke and Cory Booker as "pandering" "gringos." He also expressed fiscal concerns over the Democrats who call for Medicare-For-All, free college education, and eliminating student debt. ...'

Good gawd... I read the comments. You should never read the comments. The dregs of humanity can be found there.
