Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 18, 2019

Big-money Democratic donors have jumped off the sidelines of the presidential race, and three candidates are the clear winners of their support: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris.

Follow the money: One of these three will be the nominee, and if they don't get the nod, either Kamala or Mayor Pete will be the VP candidate.

This is no surprise, it essentially ensures Biden's nomination, since neither Pete nor Kamala are electable.

I'll say it now, and again during the DNC convention: - Told Ya So

This isn't surprising. Biden was obviously a repeat of Her, and the other two have always reeked of being the DNC's choice; not the peoples' choice. This news should be enough to convince anyone not to support their DOA general campaigns.

I don't know if it ensures anything, but I do agree that not having power bundlers behind either Sanders or Warren is ultimately going to hurt their chances for the nomination.

Big money dem in 2020!

Because it worked so great in 2016!

And while we're at it, let's continue to ignore all the passionate midterm voters in 2018 who gave dems a mandate to put a check on trump. Impeachment is too scary.

Horsecrap ROC. If sanders or warren started taking sellout money now they would lose most of the support they currently have. Not being puppets of the rich is their entire appeal. People are so sick of plutocrat puppets that they elected an------------- instead.

Actually, I agree more with you than my alleged alter ego, if Sanders or Warren started taking big money before the convention I agree that their supporters would think that they were selling out.

If either of them gets the nomination, then I don't think they have any other choice at that point, but that won't hurt them in a GE against Trump.

- this clown party.

Has far better policies for the American people, no matter the candidate, than the only other party that matters.... you know, the party whose candidate is a demented orange Putin Wannabe.

Not sure that is the best analogy for you to use, blazing fastballs down the middle of the plate usually get deposited in the cheap seats in deep center field, if not hit out of the park entirely.

Biden's body will give up the ghost before Nov. 2020. Buttgigger is living in fantasy-land, where middle-America votes for you even while they're praying their children don't get Buttgigger Syndrome,and Kamala was Wille Friggin' Brown's side-piece. It's time for a Harvard-benefitting-Native American princess to step up. Go af5ter Trump. Liz. It's easy to scalp a comb-over!

That's not a comb over, it's a comb-AROUND. Trump has no hair on the BACK of his head because he had it surgically moved to the top. Now his secret baldness is in back. Weirdest thing you'll ever see: www.youtube.com

A man this insecure and vain is our moral leader?

God that clip is so gross to watch. No wonder he can't schedule any events before noon. He needs 4 hours to spray his comb-around into place.

Yeah, he seemed to beat an even more-insecure and vain candidate in 2016. Funny how that works- you think it's all yours, and then--BAM! President Trump. How friggin p.o.'d are you gonna be after Trump defeats Kamala/Buttigigg?

You're so dumb you think a victory for trump is a victory for you.

If you hadn't noticed, the only people to benefit from his presidency are lawyers, polluters, bigots, billionaires, and enemy nations.

Notice all 3 of those candidates are against medicare for all, Kamala who twice said she was for it backed away both times later

At least biden wouldnt cancel events honoring fallen troops if it's raining because of his delicate hair situation.

Does anyone remember Hillary being triaged and chucked in to that van and being sent to Chelsea's Ambulatory Care?
I do, and I know it makes some of you sissies irate.

That was awesome. And it happened just a couple of days after a screed was published in the op-ed pages of the NYT blasting the ageism and sexism of Republicans who were calling her health into question. The timing was perfect!

Yep. Predicted to have a few months to live at best.

Nah! After her humiliating defeat she took a few months off to get some exercise by walking in the woods and supping directly from open bottles of chardonnay.

I bear no ill will toward her health.

Your predictions are always wrong, thanks for sealing Trumps fate to one term.
Remember you 2018 midterm election prediction? We do too!

I wish the Vegas Sportsbooks would take bets on your predictions. I could retire a rich man by betting the opposite of which you predict.

Two trusted politicians who always put Corporations before people, because they have more money. One polite gregarious newcomer judged to be corruptable.

ALL three better than the orange sloth, as are the other 17.
