Less than two years ago more than 10,000 Bernie Sanders supporters flocked to Ypsilanti to hear the then presidential candidate rail against Walls Street and promote his socialist plans to overthrow the nation’s ultra-rich “oligarchy.”
Yet dozens of seats went unused inside the 1,000 person capacity Rackham Auditorium at the University of Michigan last week, when Sanders campaigned alongside some of the richest, most well-connected Democrats in Michigan.
In February 2016, just ten miles down the road, Sanders drew an overflow crowd of 10,000 people to his rally at Eastern Michigan University. In contrast, the 1,000-person capacity auditorium on Friday was about 90 percent full. The audience was dominated by professionals and party-connected young people, with very few workers.
The failed presidential candidate — whom a long-time aide says may run AGAIN in 2020 — appeared at a book signing on Friday night and could be seen holding one just inches from her face in order to read it.
It’s no secret the foul-mouthed lesbian “comedian” turned talk show host is no fan of The Donald, but she took her ongoing feud with the president to a new level this week when she called on the military to remove him from the White House.
O’Donnell recalled her Election Day 2016 breakdown and subsequent road to recover her sanity during an appearance on MSNBC Thursday, when she shared a laugh with host Nicolle Wallace and other panelists about the prospect of the U.S. military invading 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Self-proclaimed future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is laying out her priorities for after Democrats’ assumed victory in the midterms, and she’s made it clear there’s “nothing” that will persuade her to approve President Trump’s promised border wall.
Erecting a big beautiful wall along the nation’s southern border to stop the steady flood of illegal immigrants and drugs is “immoral, expensive, ineffective, not something that people do between countries,” Pelosi said in response to a question at Harvard’s Institute of Politics on Tuesday, according to The Harvard Gazette.
“In any event it happens to be like a manhood issue for the president,” she said, “and it’s wrong and I’m not interested in that.”
A wall to protect the nation from illegal and dangerous intruders – “immoral,” not interested. But wall to protect Pelosi’s posh Napa Valley vineyard, that’s totally different. The Trump-supporting duo Diamond and Silk exposed Pelosi’s hypocritical position on immigration in the hilarious and timely documentary “Dummycrats,” which premiered in Washington, D.C. this week.
