Bernie vs Trump? Any chance of that happening?

Recommended Posts

Though I'd like to see Bernie make it to the general election, I suspect the DNC won't let that happen (again).  I suspect they'll find some establishment candidate to push in now that Biden is sinking fast.

DNC won't get away with it this time.  This time, the Bernie camp knows it is coming and is prepared.  The Bernie team knew that the Iowa caucus was going to be a cluster and had monitors in place at every location.  When the app crashed, the Bernie team released their internal results to let the DNC know that they weren't going to be able to get away with anything.  The DNC obviously tried to fire back by sending out the results in a way that would grab Pete the Rat a headline to keep him from being totally embarrassed over his "victorious" line.  But Bernie won.  

 

Now, Bernie has a huge advantage on the ground in NH as Pete the Rat put all his chips on Iowa and has very little presence in NH.  The big question will be whether Warren will be the tool for the establishment or give in and throw her support to Bernie in exchange for a VP nod or cabinet position.  I think it will become clear that the current DNC leadership's days are numbered and everyone will gradually start lining up to be on team Bernie.

I wouldn't be so sure about that...

The establishment (both parties) wants to retain it's wealth and power.  They'll do whatever they can to that end.  Unless they can bring Sanders or Warren to heel, they'll have to push someone more to their liking over the top.  The Republicans faced the same issue in 2016, but didn't have the superdelegate system like the DNC to ensure the establishment pick won.  They couldn't effectively put their fingers on the scale to prevent Trump from getting the nomination.

Biden will be the Dem nominee for POTUS in 2020.

 

Trump wins reelection very easily on November 3rd.

You do realize America will NEVER vote for a terrorist as POTUS. 

 

Plus that terrorist is 79 years old & too uppity. He is also a national security threat that must be exterminated altogether!

You know, maybe using the word 'exterminated' in connection with the Jewish candidate is not in the best of taste.
Also, maybe the Secret Service should ask you to clarify that statement. They take a dim view of death threats.

Easily? Speaking of terrorist, Fat Hitler lost the popular vote by millions last time. Robust economy or not, his approval numbers are always below 50% (sometimes WAY below). 60% of the nation can't stand the sight of him. And Democrat voters have been fired up about getting out to the polls EVERY year since he was elected. They were not fired up necessarily because they loved the Democrat candidate who was running, but because they wanted to do something to stop Fat Hitler. I don't think Democrats will be staying home this year either. They are angrier than ever - spreading TDS is GOOD thing!  ANY Democrat candidate running against Fat Hitler will have a very, very good chance.

 

Fat Hitler might steal the election again (with the help of some foreign nation he grants a favor to), but saying it will be 'easy' is something only a 'stable genius' would say.

 

And speaking of extermination, let's face it, Fat Hitler supporters alway give away the REAL reason they support him. Economy my @$$!

 

That's right Auggie, I have TDS. 🙄 Whatever. But I've learned to live with it, love it, embrace it and do my best to infect the world with it. At this point, spreading the anger can only help us in November.

Hitler would never have let his daughter marry a Jew and raise her kids Jewish, either.  And I don't recall Hitler appointing any Jews to government posts.  The whole "Trump is a Nazi meme" is lazy and lame.

 

And what are those red flags behind and to left of the photoshop picture?  Is this from a communist party rally?

I wouldn't be surprised if it came straight from one of those Trump hate rallies, you know, where his head is all red and his eyes are bugged out and he's screaming about Mexicans and revenge.

 

PhGuhd_WsvuoHgVBeTX56QbV1A-E5TeJjTA9Gx9Y

 

Comparing Trump to Hitler is more appropriate than ever. The only diff is that instead of scapegoating Jews, it's Mexicans this time. Fat Hitler wants you to believe that Mexicans are responsible for:

 

• Taking your job - although he has employed several undocumented workers at his hotels and despite saying the economy has been "fixed" 

• Doing all the crime - although native born Americans still top the list 

• Spreading diseases - BREAKING NEWS! Coronavirus didn't come from Mexico

 

Fat Hitler says:

 

• We need a multi-billion dollar wall to "protect" us (and is pulling funds from the military to do it - not Mexico, like he promised)

• Hispanic families deserve to be caged and separated 

• He isn't concerned that his tweets sound racist, because 'many people agree with me'

• Much more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_views_of_Donald_Trump

 

BTW, the meme actually says: Trump NOTHING like Hitler. Hitler wasn't fat and bald... 😆

 

But I disagree. Fat Hitler reminds me a lot of Original Hitler. Original Hitler gained power and kept power by turning society against one of its minorities. I've heard plenty of deplorable white trash say that they voted for Fat Hitler because "they are tired of looking at all the Mexicans everywhere" or something similar. From my observations in the actual world (and the internet, of course), the racists seem to be more emboldened by the day. The racists used to only spread their trash when they thought no one outside their circles could hear them (unfortunately, growing up a casually dressed, middle class white boy from Houston myself, I've always been "near" their circles). Not anymore, their cult leader Fat Hitler has given them all the confidence they need to say it in your face - or do what that wacko from Allen, TX did at the El Paso Walmart with his rifle to stop the "Hispanic invasion" as he called it.

 

Here's another lazy and lame meme for you...

Patrick_Crusius_Video_Surveillance_Shoot

 

What's lazy and lame is dismissing angry reaction to racist comments as 'lazy and lame'. In fact, some might even call it a little complicit.

If making fun of handicaps on TV isn't enough for "Trump supports" to realize he's a terrible human being (besides the HUNDREDS of things he's done to make our great country look bad), then you guys need therapy.

I'm starting to think a Biden/Sanders ticket is the way the Dems will go this year.  Sadly, the establishment can't come up with anything better than Biden.  Clearly they can't put Bernie at the front of the ticket, but they also don't want to alienate all those Bernie supporters that stayed home last time because the Dem establishment steamrolled over him in favor of Clinton.

 

This election might be even more fun to watch than 2016.

 

edit:  Interesting that out of one of the most diverse candidate groups ever, they've devolved down to two old white guys.  Scratch the surface of the Democratic party and you'll see who is really in charge.  The rest is just marketing fluff.

Too bad some people can never get beyond race. Who cares what color they are as long as they aren't orange.

 

Biden is the safer choice. It's not that hard to understand why he'll probably be at the top of the ticket. Biden was vice president and it isn't hard for most people to imagine him as president. At least he "looks the part". I guess that's half the battle. Unfortunately a lot of people will base their votes on 'looks'. This year, it's important for Democrats to base their votes on whoever is most likely to take out trump and that's Biden. It is what it is. It seems most African-American voters don't seem to mind voting for that old white guy at all, in fact they just might have saved Biden's candidacy and this entire country.

 

It would have been just great if the person most likely to take out trump was less white, old and male. But all 29 of the original Democrat candidates are frickin' Jesus Christ compared to trump, yes even the old white guys. In a normal election, I think the Democrat voters would have been more willing to take risk with a "less-traditional" looking presidential candidate like Hillary or Barrack or Buttigieg or Sanders. But it's just too important to remove the current wannabee dictator and chief and convicted criminal pardoner and p)(ssycat-grabbing election-fixer, impeached Ukraine blackmailer. If Democrats were running against Romney or Jeb Bush or someone who owns a soul instead of a subscription to The Crusader, I'll bet Joe would have never even entered the race.

 

Yes, he's 4 years older than trump and he doesn't wear spray tan or color his hair or have raccoon eyes - but Biden is far more likely to pick off a few republicans that have a conscience than most of the other Democrat candidates were - God love them.

I don't think it would be a bad thing if Biden and Sanders were both working in the White House together, but it just doesn't sound like anything that would happen on an election ticket in the real world. I like Sanders just fine, but I doubt there's time to try to convince all the MAGAtards that they are ALREADY Socialists -  at least the ones who aren't collecting Social Security and Medicare, yet.

 

But who knows, we might have to make the time to convince them. This thing's not over yet. It's probably set, but there could be a few more wild cards out there. As of today trump's Coronavirus has infected over 530 Americans and killed 21. This time last week, after he took time off from campaigning and raising funds for trump, Coronavirus Czar Pencelneck said there were under 20 infected and 1 old person in their 50's "who was going to die anyway" had "unfortunately expired from it" (don't worry, Fat Hitler says go to work if you have it, it's under control and we don't need anymore ships "adding to our numbers"). I wonder what that number will be by next November? Even if it's just a killer "hoax", all 3 presidential contenders have a higher risk of infection and death than the average American. Call it a "hoax", call it an "unforeseen problem", call it Armageddon, but don't say you have a clue what this country will look like by November.

 

Here's some more hoax. COVID-19 could serious screw up oil and the airlines and a lot of other industries for a long while. The Futures Market today predicts the bottom falling out tomorrow because oil is tanking (but what to they know). Money Changes Everything. It might go away in the summer (although Australia tells us otherwise)  but it will be back just in time for the election. And trump has time to create another 2 or 3 hundred scandals by then. Don't like it. Go sue the news.

Total shutout of Bernie again, then.  Think he'll pick one of the original contenders?  Warren maybe?

He didn't just all but say it.  He outright said it.  "I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”

Biden/Sanders? Don't you EVER get tired of being wrong?

And to think... It only took Dementia Don 3 years to do it. He didn't have to wait for a 2nd term like reagan and 'dubya'. He's nice enough to have crashed the market right before a re-election attempt like Hoover. How'd that work out?
