It will be nice to get decent people in the White House again.
Actually, the media referred to Michelle's look (looking away) as 'The Face' (I was 'cross remembering' it with my favorite picture from Trump's inauguration..a picture of Bill and Hillary where Bill is checking out Melania and (unbeknownst to Bill) Hillary is giving him a mild stink eye).

Here is a link with the pic from Mandela's funeral that the media, in reference to Michelle, dubbed 'The Face':

I just said to my husband “I’m really liking Tulsi Gabbard” and said “sorry but we can’t have a supermodel as a president”. 🤦🏼*♀️

Not inspiring but this is not a personality contest. As far as policy, he is right. He would deport illegals, allow Dreamers to stay, allow decent LEGAL immigrants to come in the right way.

If I were a democrat I would be deeply deeply ashamed right about now.

Obama followed the same detention policies of the U.S. that administrations before him used. Families were kept together almost always. It would be cruel to take children away, and unsafe. Children need their parents. But there were circumstances where after a period of time, the parents were needed to be detained longer than usual. In that case, it wasn't safe keeping the families together, since they were kept with other families. So the parents were told the process, and the children were, in an orderly and well documented way, sent to foster homes or wherever (not cages), and were reuinited after the parents appeared in court. No children were lost, because records were kept.

Totally different process. Trump intentionally takes children away to traumatize the children so as to hurt the parents psychologically and cause them not to try to enter again. Several children have died. Some have been abused. And more than a few are forever lost to their parents...Trump didn't keep records of who the parents were, and the babies and toddlers can't tell them.
They take advantage of our laws.

Gillibrand is all about anecdotal stories without any real policies or ideas.

Thank you Gillibrand! Yes, Pantaleo should have already been fired.

I agree. He's the only sane one up there.

The race will be between two old white men. It will be hard for Democrats to claim they're the party who wants to give woman and minorities a better chance when they put up an old white geezer.
