Democratic emerging frontrunner Elizabeth Warren needs a retort to Trump’s “Pocahontas” slur in her stump speech. Try “Con Don” or “Don The Con”. Who can argue with that?
What a question. And yet Fox pollsters asked it. The answer?
92 percent of Democrats said Yes
59 percent of Independents said Yes
19 percent of Republicans said Yes
Huh? How can this president be legitimate with numbers like that?
Sinking in the polls and obviously desperate to blame others, Bernie Sanders and his team are now trafficking in conspiracy theories about the media. Never thought they’d steal a page from Trump’s playbook.
Somebody in the Republican party, and preferably in the Trump Cabinet, should stand up and say Enough! Rick Perry is a possibility. The former Texas governor is among the few on Trump’s Cabinet who haven’t embarrassed themselves with humiliating scandal. He’s got street cred with at least the religious right elements of Trump’s base. Not saying I would support him for president but why not make the Republican nomination a race?
Republicans who give a damn about preserving their party ought to be thinking about such things.
And of course it wouldn’t hurt Democrats to see a civil war within Trump’s base.
