The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It’s such a busy day that I thought I’d do some quick takes on the passing scene…
My take on the Academy Awards – Every Oscar went to some guy or woman I’ve never heard of for a movie I haven’t seen and won’t see in the future.
Oh wait: I have heard of Spike Lee, but after his childish display of petulance last night, I wish I hadn’t.
The lack of self-awareness is strong in this one… – Chelsea Clinton complains that her grandmother did not have access to Planned Parenthood.
Oh, my. Which grandmother was she talking about? Grandmother Rodham, or Grandmother Clint…er, Hubb…er, never mind.
Speaking of lack of self-awareness, it’s a damn shame her parents didn’t possess such foresight. – Alexandria “The Boss” Ocasio-Cortez now says that today’s parents should not have any more kids because of, like, climate change and stuff, and there’s, like, this sort of “scientific consensus” that their lives will be hard, or something.
“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”
For the record, the “scientific consensus” is that children born today will experience a lower percentage of poverty, lower percentage of hunger and disease and deprivation, and a higher standard of living and longer life expectancy than all prior generations of human beings.
But “The Boss” has her dogmatic fantasies, and as I pointed out this morning, confusing her with things like facts and truth and reality is a fool’s errand.
Why, that’s exactly how tens of millions of Americans feel about Harry Reid! – Harry Reid to CNN this morning: “Is there anything I think the President Trump is doing right? I just have trouble accepting him as a person and so frankly I don’t see anything he’s doing right.”
By the way, after President Trump punched back at Reid’s taunt, the fake news media bashed Trump because Harry Reid has cancer.
You seriously cannot make this stuff up. Can someone please get these Democrats a self-awareness coach, STAT?
“…now let me tell you about all of these overtly-socialist policy ideas I support, starting with the Green New Deal…” – Here’s what Kamala Harris told a CNN interviewer this morning: “I certainly think that we should all want that our leaders do not engage in name-calling because that’s really just a very low-level of discourse,” says KamalaHarris. “I’m a progressive Democrat. I am a Democrat, I’m a proud Democrat. I’m not a socialist.” Yeah, sure, uh-huh, right, you betcha.
She’ll just take all that cash behind closed doors. – Also from the news-fakers at CNN – so take it for what it is worth – Fauxcahontas is now ordering her staffers to be quiet about taking money from wealthy donors: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is laying down a new rule for her presidential campaign: No fundraisers, dinners, receptions or phone calls with wealthy donors.”
Gosh, Judging from that cap, Mr. Evers must be a white supremacist. I’ve been assured that’s a correct assumption by the entirety of our nation’s news media establishment.:
Charles Evers, brother of slain Civil Rights Leader Medgar Evers.
