I'm just surprised Trump even knows what the Trail of Tears is.

 

He does worship Andrew Jackson.

Warren's weakness is having only one scandal. Her only hope is to quickly accumulate hundreds in the next year so no one can focus on just one, Trump style.

The native American thing is silly. It's a "controversy" because it's easy to have an opinion on and sharing that opinion only serves a purpose of sowing mistrust among people who were already inclined to mistrust her and the justifications to make it out to be a concern over the kind of administrator she'd be are pretty strained. It's embarrassing for her and kind of absurd but I don't understand why it would affect anyone's vote except in maybe a tiebreaker sense. There's no there there. 

 

This is kind of where I am too. If this is the biggest knock against Warren she's a great candidate.

From the Washington Post:

 

But she is relatively untested when it comes to raising the kind of money needed for a campaign, as well as appealing to minorities and winning over liberals. She has not come out in favor of Medicare-for-all, for example...

 

Aaaaand we're done here unless she explicitly comes out in favor of MFA.  This is now the basic "litmus test" for any Democratic candidate.

The interesting thing will be how the various candidates define Medicare for All and if that definition passes the test. I don't think Public Option will, but Single Payer might go too far.

Harris admits to smoking weed in the past which... is the last surprising thing to say nowadays lol. But when asked, she said, "Half my family's from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?"

Obama laughed and then commuted thousands of non-violent drug offenses. Not really that big of a deal unless laughing meant that someone who sold pot died of measles.

 

I'm more confused as to why Democrats make these kinds of decisions when often they reverse it later and sponsor positive drug reform (she has an A from NORML, for example). Can they not read the tea leaves when polling and national momentum indicate otherwise?

Democrats have been obsessed for decades with looking "weak" on issues, and think that looking "strong" with appeal to moderates. That explains almost every dumb stance they have taken on issues such as drugs or gay marriage.

If she had a change of heart, I believe it. Meanwhile:

Former New York City Mayor—and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate—Michael Bloomberg called efforts to legalize marijuana "perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever done."

 

Speaking at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Tuesday, Bloomberg said on the subject, according to WBNG-TV:

 

"We have a different kind of problem in America, for example. Last year, in 2017, 72,000 Americans [overdosed] on drugs. In 2018, more people than that are OD-ing on drugs, have OD'd on drugs. And today, incidentally, we are trying to legalize another addictive narcotic, which is perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever done. We’ve got to fight that, and that’s another thing that Bloomberg Philanthropies will work on it in public health."

 

 

I can understand having concerns about commercializing marijuana, but damn this guy is so out of touch.

"If we're not careful, our white women are going to be alone in negro jazz clubs, partaking themselves of reefer," Bloomberg continued.

Honestly, if the minimum age to run for president is 35 (and realistically 10 years older than that) every single candidate will likely have supported a policy in the past that the mid-20s woke liberals would now consider disqualifying.

Sanders supports banning assault weapons, universal federal background checks, and closing the gun show loophole.[288][289][290] In 1990, Sanders was supported by the NRA in his bid to become a U.S. Representative in exchange for opposing both the competing campaign of Peter Smith, who had reversed his stance on firearm restrictions, and waiting periods for handgun purchases.[291] In 1993, while a U.S. Representative, he voted against the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act (which established background checks and wait periods), and in 2005 he voted for legislation that gave gun manufacturers legal immunity against claims of negligence, but as of 2016 he has said that he would support repealing that law.[92] In 1996, he voted against additional funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for research on issues related to firearms, but in 2016 he called for an increase in CDC funding for the study of gun violence.[92]

 

How about that.
