Joe Biden didn't get off to the start his campaign was hoping for in Iowa and New Hampshire. But the news has been better for him lately. He finished a (distant) second place in Nevada behind Bernie Sanders, his best performance of the campaign so far. And his polling in South Carolina has held up well, potentially positioning him for his first win.
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough likened Senator Bernie Sanders' praise of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's literacy programs to someone who would praise Italian dictator Benito Mussolini for his punctual trains. "That's like saying Mussolini had the trains running. 'Have you seen the trains?' While people are up on meat hooks all lined up behind the train," the Morning Joe host said Tuesday.
"[Castro] had a literacy regime. But he also had a regime who tortured Catholics, tortured people who worshipped God in a way he didn't like, tortured students that had newspapers, kept people locked up for years, killed people," Scarborough continued. "You cannot talk about Fidel Castro's literacy program, and you shouldn't be able to without talking about the long laundry list of evils committed by Fidel Castro against his own people over decades." "He is defending this and doubling down in 2020. That ain't cool with South Carolina voters. That ain't cool with Democrats," he said.
Bernie Sanders says he's the Democrat best-equipped to defeat Donald Trump in November. But Florida Democrats insist hes the worst-equipped after Sanders' refusal Sunday night to thoroughly condemn the Cuban revolution. His comments on 60 Minutes sent shock waves through the nation's biggest battleground state, where Democratic members of Congress, state legislators and party leaders warned that his nomination "- and Sanders' self-described "Democratic socialism" "- will cost them the biggest battleground state of them all.
"Donald Trump wins Florida if Bernie is our nominee," said state Rep. Javier Fernandez, a Democratic candidate in a majority-Hispanic state Senate district. "If Bernie Sanders is atop the ticket, it's going to make it tougher for all of us to win in Florida," said Fernandez, who has endorsed Sanders' rival Joe Biden. "No one really sees Sanders winning Florida and I don't think his campaign does either."
Donald Trump has told reporters Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is the 2020 rival he fears the most during his tour of India. "I actually think he would be tougher than most of the other candidates because he is like me," Trump said while en route to the Taj Mahal in Agra, India. The president added, "I have a much bigger base" than Sanders.
Trump again asserted that the Democratic Party would do all it could to prevent Sanders from becoming the nominee, and predicted the Democratic primaries would end in a brokered convention. "It could go to the convention. It really could," Trump said. "They are going to take it away from Crazy Bernie. They are not going to let him win."
Arielle Scarcella's Twitter bio says she empowers women, LGBT, is not of the hive mind and has decided to come out' and leave the "ridiculously woke cult" that the far Left has become.
Her video is hilarious, heartfelt and doesn't hold back, and the comments on the thread show how many people are saying their own movement has bullied them.
