And once again the resistance grifters who spend half their day complaining about bots have been running bots. Again.

These 2 are complete knobs. Pathetic how people seem to have made a career out of replying to Trump tweets. They'll inevitably plug some e-book or t-shirt website as well. "RESIST TRUMP!!!" and buy these resist Trump stickers for $9.99...

Maybe I'm just more sensitive to it, but I feel like propaganda has really ramped up this cycle.

Nobody involve in that article believes the words. It's there to plant something false in reader's heads.

How can people be this crazy about the fact that people would like a little bit of healthcare instead of wars?

Probably one of the most annoying resistance grifter fuckwits going. At least the Krassensteins were funny for all the wrong reasons.

Also..............

Get him Bernie!

That there are Democrats who would rather work with pieces of shit like Kristol than with Bernie shows what moral vacuums they truly are. His Never Trump credentials don't really hold up when you look at how hard he shilled for Sarah Palin. He created the foundations for what we have today as much as anyone.

Plus he really does look like an image of what you would get if you submitted 'smug Republican cunt' into some fancy AI graphics programme, hateful little shit that he is.

Kristol is truly awful. He like Boot and even guys like Campbell in the UK still have not acknowledged their role in Iraq one of the most monumental fuck ups ever.  To them its just a policy difference.

I recall Walter Jones passed earlier this year, for those unfamiliar with him, he was a relatively generic right winger congress member who backed Iraq. However afterwards he denounced it consistently and wrote letters to deceased soldiers families. He also was not an Israel stooge and yeah Kristol ran campaigns to remove him. That's what makes the likes of Kristol so horrid, they still cheer on foreign intervention despite knowing that they long term its really does not work out.

Uh oh. Bernie lost the backing of Jennifer Rubin another wretched Republican fuckwit who has tried to reinvent herself as some sort of Trump critic.

So ungracious to not say the Iraq war was a good thing.

It's just propaganda now. Nothing needs to make sense, nothing needs to be rational, the important thing for them is that it's aired because they know people will ingest it. There's no way back from that. This is forever now.

Meanwhile Biden is creepy as ever and sounds like he's dying: https://twitter.com/BernForBernie20/status/1133520546778554368

The more he appears in front of a microphone and camera the better. He MUST have been instructed not to touch girls and say creepy things to them, and yet there he is. He can't stop.

Oh Biden, this is such an easy thing not to do. Can't joke about it now. I hope a tall, muscle bound man does the exact the same thing to Biden.

But these are strange times: people still voted for pussy-grabber Trump. It depends who votes in these primaries and what they'll turn a blind eye to.

I expect if Biden wins the nom, you'll be right but during the primaries (especially if Trump starts giving a deserved nickname) he'll get attacked.

They're getting a bit perturbed that socialism is no longer the scaremongering term it used to be, so they've been forced to go along the line to the next red-scare bogeyman. I've no idea what James Freeman's political acumen is, but I have a feeling that if you were to ask him to detail the tenets that Marxism shares with European-style centrist social democracy (the kind of which Bernie actually espouses), you'd be left standing there with a beachballing slack-jacked idiot for a very long time indeed.

Biden falling in polls, Warren surging. Sanders and Warren are the ones with the biggest voting base overlap and yet they are on the best of terms. I hope they have a pact or something - it's about time the left uses some clout to screw over the centrist wing of the party.

Trump seems to have plumped for the disappointingly punch-pulling nickname ‘Sleepy Joe Biden’ when surely it would have been more on point and effective  to switch the ‘Sl’ for a ‘Cr’? Maybe that’s what he meant to write but got mixed up. Or maybe even Trump is self aware enough to know that accusing an opponent of being a skeeze is too much of a glass houses/stones tactic to work.

I think Sleepy is working better. It has the association of sleepy creepy that was initially said. Creepy would allow opponents to Trump to suggest he is just or more so creepy. And from appearances I have seen Biden does seem to have a lack of energy compared to similarly aged opponents in Bernie and Trump.

Also; the Democrats went big on the 'pussy grabber' but don't think that narrative was helped much by having 'stand by her man' Hilary opposing him in the last election. Similarly; I don't think that narrative could be used against Trump as well if he goes against Biden who is going to continue making gaffes; had the gifs and also the manner of his treatment and empty apology to Anita Hill.

The depressing reality of the USA summed up in the "progressive" Warren making one of her big campaign policy pledges "let's limit prescription drug costs to $500 per month".

$500 per MONTH. Just for the drugs. And that is considered a presidential candidate's bold policy.

It says a lot when Trump can deflect his creepiness. Like calling his creepiness 'locker room talk',  stop acting like a creep around woman and can even compliment his wife in an exaggerated way but Biden seemingly can't change anything.

It's easy Joe, don't touch girls, don't compliment girls on their looks and talk about how much you're in love with your wife.

Warren was going to shift right. She's the compromise candidate. Though I think she'll be more left-wing or dem soc if she gets in office.
