Donald Trump turned comedian today.

2 of the comments he made to the press as he walked to his helicopter made me laugh out loud.
The first comment is the one that made me laugh the most. He made it in reference to now infamous white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. where the neo-nazis were protesting the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee.

This morning Trump was praising Lee as one of the greatest generals in history and those neo nazi white supremacist protestors were really just historians. Then came the comment that made me laugh; "I am a student of history".

Then came the second ridiculous funny comment; "I am a young vibrant man".

The third take-away I had from his comments was not funny but down right scary - "The Mueller investigation and report were part of an attempted coup to illegally take over control of the US Government."

That little clip had to have been written by Stephen Miller with the help of Steve Banion designed to fire up his base to be prepared to take to the streets and use violence to protect the President from the attempted coup.

Have any candidates have a vision or plan if Trump is not Repub. candidate?

It seems Trump is hanging onto the Presidency by a thread. When the unredacted Mueller report is finally made public there may be such an uproar by the public that 67 Senators might join Dems in conviction on impeachment and removal from office.

Then Pence would be President. I would assume he would run in the 2020 election UNLESS Trump before he is impeached he forces Pence out by giving him a lifetime job as a Federal Judge and Trump appoints Ivanka to be Vice President. Then when Trump is impeached or makes a deal and resigns Ivanka becomes President. You can bet that she would then be the 2020 Republican candidate.

Talk about a turmoil and chaos in an election.

Probably over half the 20 (maybe 21 tomorrow) Dem candidates are campaigning on a "vision fro America".

Do any of them have a plan B (short vision) for running against Pence or Ivanka?

Behind the barn (TV commercial)

Remember when former Vice President Joe Biden said he would "beat the hell out of" President Donald Trump if they were in high school over his crude comments about women.

"They asked me would I like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, 'If we were in high school, I'd take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,'" said Biden,

Biden was referencing the "Access Hollywood" video that surfaced in 2016 in which Trump was heard making lewd comments about women. Trump issued an apology, calling his comments "locker room talk."
Biden said Tuesday, "I've been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life. I'm a pretty damn good athlete."
He added, "Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."

Trump had recently hit back at Biden at this year's Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington.

"You know when he said, 'I'm going to take you behind the barn'? Oh, just trust me, I would kick his ass. He'd be easy," Trump said.

I think a great video introduction when Joe Biden announces he is a candidate for President would show Biden standing behind barn with his sleeves rolled up and with his fists held up like a boxer saying "Mr. President, I am waiting for you."

Did the "Barr Report" change how you will vote?

My guess is that zero readers of DU changed their plans to vote against Trump. though we haven[t seen the Mueler Report I don't think it will change the view of many DU readers. But DU readers alone cannot win the 2020 election. We have to put aside our disappointment, anger, and despondency from losing a battle that we all thought we would win. Losing a battle does not mean we will lose the war.

We have to double down our efforts to work at winning the war. That doesn't mean just putting up a yard sign or a bumber sticker on your car or preaching to the choir by posting something here on DU. So what do I mean?

Joining a march or a rally that is opposing Trump or his policies? Rallys and marches serve a purpose in firing up and keeping our supporters excited but they don'g win over a lot of voters. what I am talking about that everyone of us can do is talk the Truth. At every opportunity with friends over a beer, at a family gathering or with co-workers during break time start a political discussion and tell them why you are voting against Trump in the next election.

To do that you need to know your facts. Just telling them you are voting against him because you don't like him or because you don't think he has been a good President won't win over an moderates or others that might vote for Trump without even knowing why. Be prepared to give them reasons not to vote for him. Know your facts. Know the Truth.

**Trump lies; Depending on what fact checker you use Trump has told between 8000 and 11000 lies since he took office. To answer the Repub. Argument that all presidents lie, The Times has found that Trump has lied nearly 6-times as much in just 10-months as Obama did during his entire 8-years in office. #

**Broken promises: He promised to build a concrete wall from sea to shinning sea that would eliminate illegal emigrants, drugs, and human traffickers from crossing the border. DHS has said that 90% of drugs enter the US at Ports of Entry. They said some comes in through tunnerls, by air and sea and even the US mail. A wall would not stop any of that. He also promised that Mexico would pay for it. In his first telephone conversation with Mexico's President Pena Nieto Mexico's President told him Mexico would not pay for it. Trump told him that was ok, just not say that publicly because it would hurt him politically.

** Health Care. He promised to repeal the ACA (Obama-Care) but couldn't come up with a replacement.

Robert Reich has made a list of 30 of the most important promises that Trump made but broke (Google it for the list) You Tube has a video of Reich talking about those promises.

In any conversation that you get into about Trump, this fact will usually get the attention of all but the most avid Trump supporters and it is about character. Ninety percent of US voters says itís important for a president to be a good role model for kids ó but less than a third believe that Donald Trump fits the bill, a new poll said Thursday.

By a margin of 67 percent to 29 percent, Americans donít consider Trump a good role model for children, according to the Quinnipiac University survey.

Nearly any business person will tell you that word of mouth is the best form of advertising. So do a little studying about the problems you are concerned about, take notes if necessary and put it in your wallet or purse and start talking. We can win this.

Is it a coincidence that front runners Biden and Beto have both delayed announcing they are running?

Though they have not yet announced they are running for President they are both in the early states of Ohio and Iowa this week. I expect (and hope) they make a joint announcement this month while in those early states. Biden announcing he is running. Beto announcing he is NOT running because Biden has asked him to be on the ticket as his VP when Biden wins the nomination.

That ticket would beat Trump in the general election and would scare the shit out of Trump. It might even cause Trump to drop out of the race (for health reasons).

During the campaign Biden would stress that he would only run for one term. But he would have Beto as his partner and a fantastic pool of other primary candidates from which to select cabinet positions and other top jobs. That would guarantee a united Democratic Party for the general election.

That would accomplish the number one priority of Democrats - beat Trump and get him out of the Presidency. Polls seem to show that the public attitude is changing. On questions about what issues are important to them, a high percentage are including as one of thir top issues is having a President with character, integrity, and honesty.

We could again have country that we are proud of.

Trump is in the precess of making the longest speech of his Presidency at the CPAC.

Source: MSNBC

He has been talking for over 2 hours and is still going. Does that scare the GOP?

Biden team discussed 2020 run with O'Rourke as VP: report

Source: Associated Press

Share to Twitter

Advisers to former Vice President Joe Biden have reportedly floated the idea of him teaming up with a younger running mate if he ran for president in 2020, including potentially Rep. Beto OíRourke (D-Texas).

The Associated Press, citing people speaking on the condition of anonymity, reported the scenario Friday while noting that current and past advisers have discussed having Biden team up with a younger running mate to alleviate concerns about his age.

Biden would be 77 years old on Election Day in 2020 and would be the oldest president ever elected if he won. He has said he is considering launching another White House bid to take on Trump in two years, and is expected to face a crowded Democratic field.

There are a bunch of prospective Dem candidates that would make a Great President. But they will have a fight to win the nomination with such a large field wanting to run (20+) That kind of fight would likely cause some splits in the Dem Party. . With Biden at the top of ticket a bunch of those potential candidates would drop out and support Biden. Beto on the ticket would eliminate concerns about Biden's age and add some vigor and excitement to the ticket. If Biden acknowledges the quality of those wanting to run and announce he would want those new faces in his cabinet and other high government positions we would go into the 2020 campaign as a united party.

I agree with what Biden said when he said he was the most qualified person in the country to be President. He has the experience to know how to govern. He would be mentoring and teaching all those new faces that he brought into his administration. The Democratic Party would be stronger in the years ahead.
