She does not have the stamina or burning desire for 18 months of hard campaigning.

Life is too easy now being Oprah the almighty Queen of Liberal Hollywood.

I agree with you there, the DNC did rig the primary. I am sure Bernie would have sent Trump to the cleaners.

1. Do not rage Tweet at 3 AM

2. Do not Tweet at all

3. Do not openly judge women on their looks

4. Do not call people names in debates

5. Speak in complete sentences

6. Do not tell blatant lies that can be easily detected/rebutted

7. Do not proclaim to be the best at everything

8. Do not insult world leaders and slam the phone on them

9. Do not spend hours a day watching cable news and live tweeting

10. Do not allow someone into the White House to write a book dissing you

Not a high bar at all.


Lol! He did all of those things, and got elected, anyway.

Bring on the bedtime cheeseburgers!
Do people not realize Trump is obese?

Everyone knew Trump was a liar and fraud when he was elected. This will not be news to his supporters in 2020.

In 2020, he will be an incumbent bragging about giving everyone a tax cut with the backing of the Mercers, the Koch brothers, and corporations around the world.

The specifics would have to be ironed out (NOTE THIS IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, OBVIOUSLY), but in general only people/families that work (pay taxes) should be allowed to vote.


Why should incompetent, drug/alcohol-addicted, welfare recipients (be they white or yellow or purple) layabouts be allowed to vote if they don't even PAY TAXES??

I guess Trump campaigned so hard that he now needs multiple hours of "executive time" each day to kick back and watch television.

BS.

Trump and the Russian troll farms would have painted Sanders as a socialist with a criminal wife.

Sanders didn't stand a chance.

No, I'm saying that the Democratic candidate only needs to meet the minimum qualifications to defeat Trump. We don't need some super inspirational person on par with JFK, Reagan or Obama. Voters will just want a return to normalcy.

Would Gail King be VP or First Lady?
