Black Voters Will Reject Any 2020 Democratic Candidate Who Trashes Obama to Appease the Far Left

https://www.theroot.com/word-to-the-unwise-black-voters-will-reject-any-2020-d-1831339154


Some people don’t learn, even after losing the hard way in 2016. Despite not being able to convince black voters that Sen. Bernie Sanders was the ideal, perfect, pure-as-driven-snow candidate during the 2016 Democratic primaries, despite arguing that black people were essentially voting against their own interests because we weren’t choosing the senator from Vermont over Hillary Clinton, many on the far left are back at it again.

Instead of recalibrating their thinking or their message, those on the far left seem poised to double down on the same strategy that led to their favorite candidate, Sanders, getting his ass whopped in 2016. They are deluding themselves, believing Sanders’ ability to (barely) beat Hillary Clinton two years ago among young black voters will trump the enormous gap that existed between Sanders and Clinton among all black voters.

They’re even further deluding themselves by going after President Barack Obama for being a “bad president”:

There's no honest debate among 2020 candidates without voters acknowledging Obama was a bad President. They have not done so. I'm going to keep hitting this point because it's simple but unacknowledged. Obama ruined the Democratic Party.

Andy Serkis as Teresa May is very, very funny- and not a little frightening...
