  • Trump and the N-word: His fans wouldn’t mind if he said it

    The Chicago Sun-Times ^ | August 15, 2018 | S.E. Cupp
    Omarosa Manigault-Newman should never have been allowed to breathe Situation Room air, and that she did, while jeopardizing national security, is a sad and frightening testament to the Trump administration’s utter lack of seriousness from its conception. And now, the President is paying the price for hiring some of the worst people to work for him: An unqualified, backbiting and dishonest former employee is waging a public relations war. I have no idea if what Manigault-Newman is alleging Trump did or said is true. It’s all plausible — would anyone be shocked to learn a man who has openly, publicly...
  • Hot dog executive to host fundraiser for Trump in Hamptons

    President Trump is expected to attend a fundraiser on Friday in the Hamptons hosted by the chairman of Nathan's Hot Dogs, Bloomberg reports. Howard Lorber, who oversees the hot dog empire and a Manhattan real estate firm, will host a fundraiser to benefit Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC), sources told the outlet. Bloomberg reported that Trump will attend a roundtable with supporters and a luncheon at Lorber's home in Southampton, which is roughly 90 miles from Manhattan. Trump tapped Lorber in August 2016 to serve as an economic adviser to his presidential campaign. The two men...

    Arca Max ^ | August 9, 2018 | Susan Estrich, Dukakis Campaign Manager
    Media outlets this week are all over a new Pew study that finds, the headlines promise, that President Trump's support is not quite as broad and not quite as happy as his stunningly stable approval rating might suggest. But what's striking from the numbers, at least as far as I can see, is not how much support Trump has lost but how, given the daily barrage of tweets and countertweets; ugly chants and ugly corruption trials (his campaign chairman); intense criticism in the media; all-out war in Congress; and foreign policy flubs and domestic failures, much remains firm, and how...

    Democratic billionaire donor Tom Steyer said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is wrong for saying his push to impeach President Trump is helping Republicans. Steyer pushed back against Pelosi’s claim during an interview with BuzzFeed News that aired Sunday night, calling Trump “reckless and dangerous and lawless.” “This is a historic time,” Steyer said. “If you step back for one second and think about this president, the most corrupt president in American history, somebody who is breaking the law on a daily basis.” Pelosi warned Democrats earlier this year against pursuing impeachment efforts against Trump, saying it could hurt...

  • Leftist Dem Sen. Kamala Harris on Her “Biggest Win”: I’m on Committees! – Audio 8/10/18

    Here is California Sen. Kamala Harris – a likely 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate – being asked today what her biggest “win” or “accomplishment” is so far during her time in the U.S. Senate. Uh, she had no answer, because she hasn’t done anything! Essentially, she’s been running for President since she got to the Senate. Her answer: I’m on Committees! Seriously. That was it! The Democrats are very likely to end up nominating Harris to be their 2020 Candidate. Okaaaaay. . . . .

    Michael Avenatti's crusade for the porn actress taking on the president has already catapulted him to cable news stardom and endeared him to many frustrated liberals. Now the self-styled "dragon slayer" is taking his message to Iowa Democrats. And the attorney who has spent months positioning himself as one of President Donald Trump's leading critics insists this foray into Iowa — an early proving ground on the presidential campaign calendar — is not a stunt. "I am not proposing this to get under the president's skin," Avenatti said in an interview. "I am seriously considering it, and I think a...

    The American Prospect ^ | August 7, 2018 | Robert Kuttner, Co-Founder and Co-Editor
    There is a saying attributed to various wise men: “Never make predictions, especially about the future.” Allow me to tempt fate and offer some musings about the 2020 election and America’s democratic future: The Republicans. I will be amazed if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee. The water around him is rising fast, and he is likely to be long gone by 2020, either via impeachment or resignation in a deal that spares him prosecution. Trump’s Sunday morning tweet admitted that a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign aides and a Kremlin-linked lawyer was designed to “get information on...

    Huffington Post columnist Robert Kuttner should right now go over to PredictIt and place the maximum allowed bet of $800 on President Donald Trump not being the 2020 Republican nominee. After all, according to Kuttner's August 6 column, Trump won't be the 2020 Republican nominee.  Why? Because Trump's Sunday tweet reiterated what was well known since July 2017 --- that his son Donald Trump, Jr. met with a Russian lawyer to seek information about the Hillary Clinton campaign.  The title of Kuttner's article is chock full of the very desperate hope based on fantasies that he and his fellow liberals...

    Joe Biden is leading the Democratic field in some early polls asking voters about the party’s prospective presidential candidates in 2020. But in his old stomping grounds in the U.S. Senate, there are plenty of skeptics who point to the former vice president’s age, his support for the Iraq War and his two failed presidential bids as reasons to doubt he would be successful. “It’s hard to see someone [winning] who voted for the Iraq war. People are looking to turn the page,” one senior Democratic aide said. A second senior Democratic aide said “polls show that voters want someone...

    A Chicago-based newspaper columnist predicted re-election for President Trump in 2020 after witnessing first-hand the enthusiastic support for the president among blue-collar workers. Neil Steinberg attended a recent appearance by the president at a U.S. Steel facility in Granite City, Illinois, outside St. Louis. He wrote about speaking to steel workers and seeing how Trump connected with the audience. "We need steel," Trump said. “We need steel plants. And to see an old, big monster plant like this re-opening — that is an honor. I look at the faces of you people; I could be one of you. I like...
  • SamAdams76 Monthly trending of Twitter Follower Growth for 2020 Presidential Candidates - Aug 2018

    This is a monthly posting of Twitter follower growth over the past month. Last Month's post here The purpose of these posts is to track Twitter follower growth for announced presidential candidates on a month over month basis. This is unscientific and is not intended to be taken that seriously. I also understand that some presidential candidates may inflate their twitter following by artificial means. But during the 2016 campaign, the growth trends did seem to correlate to the actual results. All during that campaign, the Twitter growth of Trump was massive compared to the other candidates. Only Hillary and...

    MSN / Daily Beast ^ | August 3, 2018
    During her Friday afternoon keynote address at Netroots Nation, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) seemingly hinted at the possibility that she could run for president in 2020. “We believe that in America every family deserves a fighting chance, and we’re ready to fight as hard as it takes, as long as it takes, to deliver on that promise,” Warren said to the crowd at the annual liberal confab. Those fighting words, along with her characterization of a dysfunctional Washington catering to the highest bidder, have become a hallmark of her economic populist rhetoric and would prove crucial to any possible run...

    Last week, my colleague Bret Stephens imagined a news article on the morning after President Trump’s re-election. Today, I imagine a different outcome. In the end, it was a lot simpler than it often seemed. Donald J. Trump, who spent much of the past four years as a historically unpopular president, lost his bid for re-election Tuesday. His approval rating hasn’t approached 50 percent since he took office, and neither did his share of the vote this year. In an era of deep national anxiety — with stagnant wages, rickety health insurance and aggressive challenges from China and Russia —...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder told a group of Cincinnati Democrats that he's interested in running for president, CNN reported Sunday. The network reported that City Councilman Wendell Young asked Holder on Friday if he has "any interest in being president. "Am I interested (in) it? Yeah, I'm interested," Holder responded. Holder reportedly said he won't decide until next year on a potential 2020 campaign, noting he needs to consult with his family. He previously told CNN that he believes the right candidate should be able to inspire people, have the vision for the job, the physical and mental capacity...

    Waking up 18 months ago to discover Donald Trump had been elected US president filled me with despair. What on earth had happened to politics? How could a reality TV star with no experience of government – and multiple character flaws to boot – have been chosen by American voters to be their leader? My 13-year-old daughter was also deeply troubled. “How could America vote for a man who said these things about women?” I didn’t know what to say. She went off to school. And I went off to a dance studio to practise a Gangnam Style salsa for...

    Twitter just got caught suppressing the accounts of U.S. lawmakers they don’t agree with, i.e. Republicans. What’s the big deal? Democrats have been doing everything in their power (and a few things beyond their powers) to suppress the policies of a politician they don’t agree with, with complete impunity.Apparently Twitter changed their definition of “shadow banning” in order to be able to deny that they did it. Unlike Democrats who proudly continue with their obstructionism, some of which is beginning to look deranged if not illegal.But that’s okay, if the Dems keep pushing their neo-socialist platform President Trump’s observation from...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren made an amateur mistake on CNBC on Monday when she gave real answers to a reporter’s questions. The appearance should have been an easy media score as the questioner was John Harwood, a journalist who famously fawned over President Obama’s ability to swat a fly in a 2009 interview. It did not go well, though, as Warren explained why she wants to overturn the Trump tax cuts.

    A sneak peek at the Times’s news analysis from Nov. 4, 2020. Nov. 4, 2020 In the end, a bitterly fought election came down to the old political aphorism, popularized during Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 run against George H.W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” This time, however, it was the Republican incumbent, not his Democratic challenger, who benefited from that truism. Donald J. Trump has been decisively re-elected as president of the United States, winning every state he carried in 2016 and adding Nevada, even as he once again failed, albeit narrowly, to gain a majority of the popular vote....
