Which face do you really think will prevail in the coming years?
Question: Why did they feel the need to do this?

Answer: Because they are becoming aware that they, along with their ideas, are becoming wildly unpopular in swing states and among independents.

I don't know if the President is doing it on purpose but he is causing the Democratic Party to implode. They may lose the House and the presidency in 2020.

Exactly. I saw that and wondered WHY she wasn't instantly excoriated by her lefty Congressional cohorts.

I guess that must by why most Jewish voters vote Democratic.


This is blatant misinformation from the Party of Trump (and his alt-right and Russkie supporters) that hate everyone who is not like them.

Prior to this, Pelosi was correctly trying to muzzle and distance the party from "The Squad", as she knows that they poll very badly across the nation.


Now "The Squad" IS the democrat party and they own all their racist, pro-illegal, anti-American positions.


Let's see how popular "The Squad" is in the 2020 elections. The dem party is now a political leper.

Many people who are gay that I know (including myself) hate the word q***r.

Anyone who constantly whines and complains about America. Trump's tweet challenge was for such persons to go back to the country of their ancestral roots and see if that country is any better than the U.S., OR if it isn't, what they did to successfully improve it to make it so.

Correct. There are plenty of white grandparents who had prejudices against Black folk.

I knew more than a few white girls who were beat by their grandparent or parent for dating a Black person.
