The political universe is holding its breath as the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to drop Thursday morning. Democrats and have already settled on a strategy of deriding the report’s redactions as somehow obscuring facts and giving Trump a walk, although they haven’t clarified what facts might be obscured, and what exactly he’d be getting a walk from. As if facts matter when there’s a narrative to protect.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) may have competition for the title of “biggest anti-Semite in Congress.” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is under scrutiny after meeting with members of islamofascist hate group American Muslims for Palestine. Tlaib even posed for photo-ops with known muslim terrorist mouthpiece Joe Catron. Omar: “I hate the Jews the most!” Tlaib: “Hold my falafel and watch this.”
Democrat Presidential wannabes Robert “Beto” O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders are both under fire for their paltry charitable giving, despite tremendous personal wealth. Both offered weak excuses, notably O’Rourke’s assertion that running for office is a form of charitable donation. Of course socialists don't give to charities. Why donate your own cash when you plan to take other people’s money and donate that, instead?
O’Rourke wasn’t done beclowning himself. The failed Senate candidate-turned Presidential aspirant blasted President Donald Trump at a recent campaign event, offering a defense of anti-Semitic Rep. Omar by calling the President “hateful,” and a “racist,” and suggesting Trump’s policies are reminiscent of “the Third Reich.” A fake Latino smeared the President in defense of violent anti-Semitism. Welcome to the Democrat Party, v. 2019.
“Politico” raised some eyebrows Wednesday with their assertion that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) “is the first Indian-American candidate to make a serious run at the presidency.” I bet Bobby Jindal was surprised to hear that. I’ll bet Elizabeth Warren was even more so.
South Bend Mayor, and Democrat candidate for President, Pete Buttigieg shared some deep economic thoughts, claiming “capitalism has let a lot of people down.” As opposed to his party’s new fave, socialism, which has created nothing but parties everywhere it has been tried. And by “parties” I mean “mountains of corpses.”
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) added his name to the Democrat candidate pool, announcing his run for the White House Wednesday. Tens of people were thrilled to hear it. Slightly fewer, if you don’t count his family.
The Jussie Smollett hoax popped back up, thanks to the release of text messages between Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and her staff in which she referred to Smollett as a “washed-up celeb.” Smollett, whose plan to boost his own profile by staging a fake hate crime clearly succeeded with Hollywood liberals, is hardly washed-up. Although Foxx might want to consider a new line of work.
