Howard Dean is in big trouble with his job over at MSNBC for also suggesting in a tweeet that The Donald is snorting coke – which to his credit he refuses to walk back. Thing is that everything about what Donald in that debate reeks of cocaine even though it seems doubtful. The point being that were it Al Franken or Debbie Wasserman Schultz doing the same things in a debate, their cocaine use would still a week later be the primary talking point of the Trump surrogates, Fox News, Drudge, Breitbart, talk radio and so on. Which seems to be the point that both Maher and Dean are making. Using yet another in the long list of intellectual hurdles that Trump supporters cannot even crawl under yet along jump over.
The greatest intellectual hurdle they cannot get past will come next week when The Donald throws the semen covered blue dress in Hillary’s face. That calling women fat pigs, dogs and such is no different that a woman’s husband cheating on her or a cuckolded woman saying nasty things about the other woman. Or these people even understanding what the concept of moral equivalency even means.
GOP strategist Rick Wilson didn’t hold back, when he told Chris Hayes of MSNBC what he thought about Donald Trump and his rabid ‘fan boy’ followers! Wilson was talking about Trump’s “alt-right” fans, not to be confused with mainstream supporters…A fine line, but one Wilson feels is significant. The group Scott describes as the ‘alt-right’ screamers and crazies who love Donald Trump can – in part be identified by having lots of “Hitler iconography in their Twitter icons.”
As if to clearly identify the group, Wilson said; “Most of them are childless single men who m—— to anime’.” They’re not real political players. These are not people who matter in the overall course of humanity.”
Wilson may well have nailed it, to the astonishment of co-panelists Joy Reid and Charlie Peters.
We only hope that Sarah Palin won’t replace anime’ for them in the months to come, and that they will remain as insignificant in the outcome of the election as Rick Wilson fervently hopes they are.
I’m Bernie Sanders and I want your vacuum pennies.
I was just looking at my change bowl over there on the mantle. There must be $50 worth of pennies and in it. Let’s say the average household has 2000 pennies in containers. If the Democratic half of America sent Bernie all their pennies, that would be a billion dollars for him to run with. Almost as much as Bush and Hillary will each get this cycle.
