If you support the release of Chelsea Manning you support Russia. She was granted immunity for her testimony, agreed, and then went into the grand jury and stonewalled them. She deserves to stay in jail until she talks. I also have my doubts this account actually belongs to Mike Gravel and it isn't just some troll online
It’s run by rad teenagers

Also, free Chelsea

He will probably be back again if his Senate run is anything to go by. He traveled around the state like 100 times lol


He posseses the ability to inspire with his words that few others can. Unfortunately sounds like he's starting to lose his voice. Either too much speaking or he's getting a cold
amelie's is so good, didn't know there was one in rock hill

This is fucking craven. Don't be a bootlicker, no matter your misgivings about Chelsea as a person.

Beto keeping up what he has been doing is going to win a termendous amount of fans. He going to keep building momentum with that absurd campaigning. All he needs to do more is be a bit more solid in terms of policy and he has a clear path to the general.
He’s certainly going to capture a lot of people’s imagination if he keeps going as he is. With the economy ticking over & unlikely to nosedive enough to really cause massive damage, I think the nominee has to be someone who can win people over on a personal level. Trump is normalised - I think his weak point one on one is vibrancy and charisma. If he gets turfed out next year, it’s not going to be a crotchety old man more vulnerable than any candidate in history to the socialist bogeyman line of attack or a professorial policy wonk that does it.

And people wonder why McCarthy and HUAC became so influential...

This is your daily reminder to chill, and stop making sharp inflammatory accusations at each other. This thread is for 2020 Primary news and discussion, let's keep things on topic. Thank you.

Handful of those bits were pretty funny (also lost it at the Klobuchar bit) but yeah, the Buttigieg joke was really lame and shitty. At least the other ones had something to them even if they weren't all funny - there was just no thought to the Buttigieg section except "lol he's gay."

The main thing beto keeps getting criticized for is the lack of concrete proposals so im not sure id call his lack of commitment an “ability “
To be fair, none of these criticisms actually means anything in the grand scheme of things. There are what, 150-200 million eligible voters in America? It's lost in the void. He needs to appeal to large swaths of "real people," not those who are full of hot air and love to complain on the internet.

Reminds me of that SNL sketch of the first 2016 dem primary debate where the actor playing Anderson Cooper played him as a gay stereotype. Like the only thing he knew about Anderson Cooper was that he was gay

Whoa, Pete already passed his $500K goal for the remainder of the quarter. I think he only put that goal up like, a week ago. That's on top of the $600K in 24 hours after the CNN townhall and whatever else he's made this month. His campaign's haul for March must be pretty impressive for such a "no name" candidate. Butti-mentum is real!

Really happy to hear this. I need to donate to him too.

Oh yeah, cheap homophobic jokes are "so good."

...
Thinking on it a bit more, the Buttigieg joke could definitely be seen as a homophobic pejorative given the context of a conservative media putting this together, but when I first watched it, I didn't even know who made the video, and I wasn't really thinking about that joke when I made that comment.

I'm surprised to see Austin respond to politics here.

So the only not openly pro-McCain candidate is Gravel, right?

Pretty much. It's a free lay-up to compliment McCain. Doesn't tie your hands politically to any policy, makes the people who want bi-partisanship happy, and you can use it to attack Trump.

Wow what a way to take a quote out of context. Watch the video and it's pretty clear what he means by this.
Yeah, pretty much along the lines of what Bernie said. Not that I don't understand people wanting politicians to not compliment McCain.

So “real” Americans don’t care about things?

Yeah nobody is going to shit on McCain. We do actually need to have AZ Blue next year, like really badly.

But I'll tell you this much, there is no middle ground to reach with Donald Trump as president so somebody that says he's not going to hold Trump accountable for his words and actions isn't somebody that's going to get my vote. We don't need Beto or anybody else "McCaining" Trump. Go back to your "Trump should be impeached" stance Beto.

I think people might want to chill on expecting potential presidential candidates to shit all over McCain
As someone who hates John McCain, I feel like openly shitting on McCain is political suicide in the US provided you are not Donald Trump.

A lot of people need to get out of their subreddit/facebook meme page/twitter bubble and realize this.
