Sunday Reads: Missile Targets

Here’s a tRumpian Valentine preview for y’all…which I think is a fitting example of the post-partum authoritarian “acquittal” the Republicans, -1, have delivered to Donald tRump.

Many of the links or tweets below will be a review of the Dictator in Chief’s latest abuses of power.

More abuses:

Of course this “acquittal” sends a message to tRump cult members…

Cruelty in tRump Administration Policy is emboldened:

I think this one tweet sums it all up:

End on Kirk Douglas.

    I finally fixed the comments off instruction. WordPress has changed the editing functions. Ugh.

    JJ, great collection of tweets on the Trump autocracy. Trumpism is McCarthyism.

      Asked about the transition of historically Democratic-leaning states like Pennsylvania and Michigan to toss up states, Carville said states like North Carolina, Georgia and Texas should be pursued by Democrats as well. And he said Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is not the man to lead that charge.

      “If Amy McGrath is running against Mitch McConnell, do you think she’s going to want Bernie Sanders in Kentucky campaigning with her,” he said. “Do you think Jaime Harrison, who’s running against Lindsey Graham, is going to want Bernie Sanders in South Carolina trying to get a Senate seat?”

      “Come on people, get real. We’ve got real work to do here,” Carville said. “We don’t have time for left-wing fantasies in this country. That’s what I think.”

    • quixote says:

      The Dump IS a career criminal. The only question is why it takes James Carville to say it out loud. He’s also right that Boinie will get creamed in the general. As will Biden. “Dog-faced pony”? Say whaaat? Does his mouth not connect to his frontal cortex?

      But the Dems and the media keep erasing the people who can actually win. Warren is the last hope, and now they’re erasing her. It’s like they do it on purpose.

      • RonStill4Hills says:

        The media decided long ago the women and people of color were no viable. From day one it has been about Biden, Bernie, Beto, Buttigieg and now Bloomberg.

        They want to put the Dems in a trick bag by alienating the two mainstay constituencies women and blacks.

        Now with that done let’s drive the favorables for everyone except the 80 year old communist and the former mayor of Hooterville.

        As they wring there hands about Biden gaffs and Bloomberg 1%’er baggage they never even mention Warren.

        We are being set up.
