George Conway Epically Responds With Just 3 Words After Trump Calls Him 'Jealous' and a 'Husband....

....from Hell'

In a Wednesday morning tweet Trump called George Conway "VERY jealous of his wife’s success," "a stone cold LOSER," and a "husband from hell!"

He also falsely denied knowing him and appeared to disparage his appearance.

Conway retweeted several of his old tweets attacking Trump, and ones that were retweeted by Duty to Warn, an "association of mental health professionals warning Trump is psychologicallly [sic] unfit."

But perhaps his best response to the President's very personal attack today was a tweet consisting of just three little words:

Hehe Succinct and too the point!

@DonaldJTrumpJr you are no friend of Britain or democracy.

Referencing that time when his father told Theresa May to "sue the EU", Trump Jr said:

But Mrs May ignored advice from my father, and ultimately, a process that should have taken only a few short months has become a years-long stalemate, leaving the British people in limbo.

Trump Jr., whose net worth is reputed to be $200m and who is also the vice president of his father's business empire, has added that the Brexit deadlock was an example of “establishment elites trying to subvert the will of the people". He said:

(But) the battle for independence isn’t over; it has only just begun.

The elites will not surrender their power lightly, and we shouldn’t expect them to. But we need to keep fighting to reclaim it for the people.

Donald Trump Jr. telling Britain our democracy is dead. Is it a joke? The same Trump Jr. who met a "Kremlin-linked lawyer" at Trump Tower in June 2016 after he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. @DonaldJTrumpJr you are no friend of Britain or democracy.

Telegraph are running an opinion piece from Donald Trump Jr that is *full* of the sort of tropes/code words beloved of conspiracy theorists and the far right. Looks more like something that should be on Infowars rather than a UK newspaper. A bit worrying.


Jr Needs to go sit in the corner and STFU
Worth noting that some say terms like "global elite" / "global power brokers" can be dogwhistle code for antisemitic conspiracy theories.

Democratic socialism is how capitalism is SUPPOSED to work...

Excellent point. Oh the irony!

Bernie Sanders hires Beto O'Rourke critic as top aide in 2020 race

US. Senator Bernie Sanders on Tuesday said he is hiring a well-known liberal journalist with a history of sharply criticizing other Democratic presidential candidates, including Beto O’Rourke.

Sanders’ campaign said it is bringing in David Sirota, whose work has appeared in The Guardian and Newsweek, among other outlets, as a senior adviser and speechwriter.

The move could stoke tensions within the Democratic field since Sirota has previously targeted O’Rourke, the former U.S. congressman from Texas who entered the presidential race last week, and other rivals.
----------
“A supporter of Bernie Sanders attacking a Democrat,” Tanden tweeted. “This is seriously dangerous. We know Trump is in the White House and attacking Dems is doing Trump’s bidding.”

Heh. Same shit different election cycle


Dem super PAC launches first 2020 ads in $100 million campaign



A leading Democratic super PAC launched its first digital ad campaign of the 2020 election cycle Tuesday after pledging to spend $100 million on early efforts in key battleground states.

The group, Priorities USA, announced a six-figure digital ad buy airing in four key battleground states that are targeted in the early spending initiative: Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The ads open with President Donald Trump telling a crowd in 2016 that his "only special interest is you, the American people." They then cut to testimonials from voters who say they were harmed by the Trump administration's economic policies, as block letters declare: "In Trump's America, billionaires win."

Gillibrand pushes back on criticism that she was too quick to demand resignation of Sen. Al Franken

Gillibrand also pushed back on criticism that she was too quick to demand the resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) in 2017, after eight women accused him of sexual harassment. Gillibrand was the first Democratic senator to call on Franken to resign, and she was soon joined by two dozen other senators from the party.

“Senator Franken was entitled to whatever type of review or process he wanted,” Gillibrand said. “He could’ve stuck it out, stayed in the Senate, gone through [the] Ethics Committee’s investigation. Those were his choices, but I had to make my choice.”

US sends specialist Thoughts And Prayers team to New Zealand after novice PM foolishly contemplates

....real action

Trump Administration has sent a crack squad of experts to assist the inexperienced New Zealand government deal with the aftermath of a mass shooting after Jacinda Ardern showed early warning signs she might do something practical to stem gun violence.

The eight-man team was tasked with sharing their country’s grim experience with mass slaughter and has some of the world’s foremost experts in the art of offering thoughts and prayers in this time of national mourning.

In addition, members of the team are highly accustomed to explaining that this was not the time to discuss legislation and that they are shocked at the cynical attempts to politicise such a tragedy.
