A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡

One was a beheading, so a hat could be useful.


Somehow I don’t think we’ll see Michael standing so close behind Trump from now on.

The Va GOP thinks that they are running a Civil War era election campaign. This is F’ing nutz!

I found that I fail in every liberal state and pass in every republican state from the 2016 election.

I was taking Weigel’s word on that; I don’t know Northam.

That ad is a certainly a business-as-usual old-Dem ad, though, of the sort that has absolutely no chance in the current context. The dodgy mike is just a symbolically resonant marker of their failure to modernise.

The Dems are showing no sign that I can see of adapting to reality in time.

he’s the democratic nominee for Governor. He beat out Tom Perriello earlier this year.

the election is on November 2017-- not 2018

If the democrats lose, there will be hell to pay.

I would have liked to see a properly miced ad; this is too important to screw around.

OTOH, Bernie may still have a role to play…

I get it’s important, but he won against what would be the establishment candidate that happened to have Bernie Sander’s support. You had Hillary’s campaign, Obama’s establishment team, and establishment super PACs backing Perriello along wtih Warren and Sanders; and pretty much everyone local and a couple of Clinton cronies backing Northam. Perriello out raised and outspent, and Northam was able to press him into a corner on non-economic progressive issues where Perriello really was weak.

The whole thing is a left eating the left situation, with someone like Dave Weigel being sour grapes that Bernie’s guy didn’t win when there is not a clear distinction on who is the progressive populist candidate in this case. His YT channel is full of better messages, but when sour grapes rules over everything you go looking for the worst to share with your audience.

Is Ralph Northam populist? I’m not following this election, but when I looked his positions didn’t seem to be about us vs them politics.

Neither are populists. I should have wrote “when there is not a clear distinction if there is a progressive populist.” I’m honestly not sure why populists backed Perriello at all.

EDIT

Oh, I guess it’s because Dominion Energy.

EDIT2

Or maybe not, I’m not actually sure why he was chosen since his record didn’t back a populist message even if he was adopting one now.

Donnie would just grab it.
