Nina Turner to CNN. No One in Ohio Is Asking About Russia... Huh?

Last edited Tue May 30, 2017, 03:07 PM - Edit history (1)

Is this person serious? Sabotage much? Any Ohioans in DU?


Nina does not sound like a DEM friend: Both parties blah blah blah. She does not wish us DEMS well at all.

Of course Breitbart's got an article on her words. They eat up sh*t like that.

I googled: nina turner ohio russia ...and First result was from Breitbart.

Russia is a diversion." If it's diversion, it's the most important diversion in decades. And I can multitask. My focus is on many issues. I voted for Nina. She was my state rep. Not sure what's going on now.

21. Unfortunately, this is true in a lot of rural areas

they get their news from talk radio (Rush Limbaugh and other nationally syndicated shows and probably some local douchebags as well) and from their churches. Most of the small town and small city newspapers have been bought up by RW conglomerates over the past 30-40 years as well. (I believe there was a study a few years ago that showed 13 of the top 15 more syndicated op-ed columnists were RWers, 1 was liberal and one was moderate...)

5. I don't think she's wrong...

...and I say this as someone who was very disappointed with her when she left the Party for the Bernie or Bust gang. (I had a private lunch with her two years ago when she was an up-and-comer in the ODP). The average voter IS NOT talking about Russia. They probably have an opinion, but they're not watching endless hours of cable news or scouring political blogs for the latest revelations. They're focused on their own economics or family life.

8. True. But there is a way to frame the talking point to NOT scapegoat other Dems. She is bitter

 

about the election and will never change. She is like the Dem twin of some Trump supporters. Nuance is not her forte and the greater good is not either. She wants the entire bag of marbles at one time and doesn't realize that you can't take your hand out of the small opening in the bag with a fist full of marbles. You have to release SOME to get ANY out out of the bag.

I see your point, but don't think that was exactly where she was coming from..

She is poo-pooh-ing the investigation and using the topic to further denigrate the Democratic party.

After that comment she goes further to say that both parties... blah blah blah.

I can't stand her...she never got over losing the election (she lost statewide) and is bitter and angry. She hates Democrats and Ohio...she voted for the slime that is Jill Stein. These people are aligned with the Russians as the picture of Jillie with Putin clearly shows. She wants the Democrats to fail...funny how those who hate Democrats all agree that we should move on from the Russian story...we shouldn't because Trump is a traitor, and it is our duty to expose his treason. As for Turner, she is finished in Ohio.

Nina Turner has some kind of agenda going every time she comes on TV. I cannot stand watching her or listening to her.

Ever since the labor issues that she first came on TV for, she has changed to a pundit rather than a politician.

20. She seems to imply, if the issue isn't russia then Flint and jobs would be

a priority. With a gop congress? Even she knows that would never happen. So her prescription is, support third party because the Dems wouldn't do any different than the gop. Magically, by 2018 third party rule will occur and every thing would be just peachy. That's just nuts.

If she really cared about Flint and jobs, she would be doing every thing in her power to see to it that Dems control congress in 2018.

10. I am in Ohio and people are following Russiagate...it is in all the papers.

The reason she says that is because the story is helping Democrats. And Nina left the Party after the primary and hates Democrats...she was in Nebraska breathlessly supporting the Anti-choice candidate Mello and trashing Democrats last month...she is aligned with the Greens and the fringe these days...she doesn't speak for Ohio. She lost a statewide race some time ago and is not well liked...she is bitter and angry these days.

41. She crossed over to the kooky fringe. She no better than Stein or Sarandon.

I can't take her seriously and I see her words and actions just as a way to get attention. She may as well be jumping up and down shouting "hey everyone! remember me? look at me!" It's a desperate attempt to remain relevant. Any day now, she's probably going to get her on "talk show" on the RT (Russia Today) network.

Apparently there's an actual REASON that her constituents rejected her and that she's now only the FORMER Ohio State-Senator.

If Mueller's investigation follows its logical conclusion then Stein would have to be investigated too. Who invited her to that event? Who paid for it? Was she in collusion with the Russians to take away votes from the Democratic Party and divide the party further.

No surprise Nina Turder wants to downplay the Russian investigation, trying to keep the heat off her comrade.

I and many others as you can see from this thread are not interested in (as in don't give a fuck about) characters who are not helping us and actually really sabotaging us at this DANGEROUS time as we stand up for people and against the Trump/Russia collusion. Sorry.

38. Oh good lord! Whose side is she on? Who's she trying to help? What's her agenda?

Her all-inclusive broad-brush absolute statements (ie: 'no one in Ohio...') reminds me of what Republicans do.

She's pretty worthless in our battle against the GOP. She needs to learn who the true enemy is. (I'm thinking that there must be a good REASON that her constituents rejected her and why she's a FORMER State-Senator.)

48. Clarification. There are at least two Ohios. Those who read, process and absorb...

Information with a brain that encompasses a world view and those who can't see beyond their own nose, have the depth of a thimble, exist in hate-enabled ignorance and will follow the Cretin like narcissist lemmings because they have been waiting a lifetime to absolve themselves of responsibility, accountability and decency towards their fellow humans.

The highly Republican manipulated "Stupid" exists in Ohio as much as it does everywhere.

Russia. RUSSIA for fuck sake.
Of course Ohioans with an expanded, educated intelligence are most definitely aware, talking, concerned and advocating. We're furious and frustrated...and fearful as well.

...and then there is Nina Turner.
She is vengeful towards the Democratic Party and bitter.
And methinks she doth protest juuuuuust a bit too much.

59. Years ago I was out there on a business trip - I drove from Lexington KY to Cleveland.

It was during the bush-Kerry campaign. I was amazed at the number of bush/Cheney billboards and lawn signs and few Kerry/Edwards signs in the southwest corner of the state. As I drove northeast, the bush signs decreased and the Kerry signs increased, finally mostly Kerry signs in the Cleveland area and very few bush signs. Ohio is indeed two separate states.

50. I saw that Sunday,

Nina Turner, was an Ohio state senator, I believe, from college police shooting stop.

The community was attacking the cop on racial grounds, she had a distinctive viewpoint being married and her son being cop.

She started speaking about economic disadvantages and how they interact with police with deadly results

Her issue is and always will be grievance spawned out of the Michael Brown, and Cleveland killing,

She jumped on the Bernie bandwagon after Bernie showed sympathy for what's happening in Ferguson and by extension, economic hardship throughout America.

As the Bernie spokesperson. She kept going back to the economic disparity issues and projecting them nationwide. When Bernie lost the nomination. She refused to endorse Hillary and thus lost her convention speech in Cleveland. Now that the national Democrats rained on her parade, she wants push her issue nationwide.

One problem, the nation is upset about Russian involvement in everything Donald Trump

I think I was confusing the fact that she was asked.



“Nina Turner turns down offer to be the Green Party's candidate for vice president

Stein's offer to Turner was first reported Sunday night by cleveland.com. Turner said then that she would have a decision before the Green Party opened its convention later this week in Houston. She said Monday that she wanted to have an answer for Stein sooner, rather than later, as the Massachusetts physician had other options.
Later Monday, Stein announced human rights activist Ajamu Baraka as her running mate.”

I remember Jill Stein was trying to lock down Bernie's people, black lives matter, and black activists.

I wonder how all three think about their actions and what it means to everyday Americans.

When Americans by the millions lose their healthcare because Obama care and related regulations away,

when lifetime limits, pre-existing conditions, lack of preventative maintenance all come roaring back.

I wonder what Nina Turner, Susan Sarandon, Cornell West, think about a Hillary vote now

. It makes me so mad to see Jill Stein in that Russian TV, Vladimir, Mike Flynn photo op.

She and Joy-Ann Reid are friends. I remember Reid tweeting that Nina told her she had zero interest. I was glad to hear that.

Note: for anyone who tries to insinuate I am a liar

-- I don't have links just my memory
-- I don't have time to find links today
-- my memory may not be 100% accurate on nitty-gritty details
-- bottom line Turner wasn't steins VP

Bitter. Irrelevant. Hated by Dems nationwide. What little love she has left on the political scene is due to her endorsement and championing of Senator Sanders. Her political career is dead in the water, as it should be after she lost a statewide race to John Husted. No one in Ohio is voting for Nina Turner.

And I'm not even going to get started on the hypocrisy of her dismissing the Russia issue after she was talking up hacked emails during the election last year.

Trump goes away, does nothing to kill the monsters responsible for the legislation.

I so wish what I was scared of came into being, it would be a lot less damaging to the general public.

Nina Turner goes on to say how people tell her they don't like the 2 parties and other BIG complains.

She minimizes the Trump/Russia investigation's importance & acts like Dems are at fault for investigating the most dangerous collusion to our Democracy.

Dems are fighting all the Donald fiascos and she wants to complain about how people are not being helped.

She does not mean well to Dems.

IMO, had Turner not jumped ship early in the HRC campaign she would have been a valuable asset in the general election effort in Ohio, Michigan and PA. She'd surely be part of Hillary's two-term administration.
