Unfortunately this "rapture" theology currently dominates our foreign policy and our environmental policy. As somebody raised in a fundamentalist Christian household with an evangelical Christian worldview, I find the Trump Presidency to make far more sense and it's far more terrifying than most secular people believe it to be.

You need to keep up.

Dems have nothing or no one to offer to the country - so you call people names and falsely accuse people. That's been the strategy since 2016. That's pretty much the 2020 platform. Good luck with that...
If what you mean is that it is silly for the Dems to spend money trying to convert "the 20%" who won't believe a bad or fair economy is Trumps doing, I agree...fully!

I like agreement. We are on the same page.

It would be foolish for Republicans to spend too much money trying to "convert" jews or blacks too. Their $$ should, and will, go towards the non-college educated white folks.

Is there something about voter targeting you don't understand? Those 20%, whether we call them nationalists or deplorables or fans of reality TV or whatever...they don't figure into the Dem strategy.

If you doubt my wisdom here, ask the republican marketers. They targeted ONLY those on the cusp.....those who could be swayed or convinced by fear and loathing. Watch The Big Hack and you'll see.

I happen to know this from taking part in a local political campaign where the consultants made this clear in the first meeting. You simply cannot convince those people to move their votes.

The latest Trumpian brain fart: "I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat -- it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty".

Oy-vey.

When he is finished with his terms in 2024 I think he should take his act on the road.

He is a funny guy.

Sure is interesting how some people are hyperfocused on Tlaib and Omar, but can't say boo about Trump.
There seems to be a hidden veil between decency and the people.

Yes a lot of Jewish words are appropriate here: Meshugenah, schlemiel, schlimazel, putz, etc., etc.

Oh come on. It is just a little juicy distraction to get the left excited and make them look away fro a while. What is funny is that it works every single time.

While everyone is raving about this statement, maybe Trump will slip in and buy Greenland.

Or maybe that is a distraction too. Where is the real focus in all of these distractions?

Probably "Oh oops, Trump snuck in and got re-elected while we were all busy raving about some ridiculous tweet."

This is the way I see it. I don't like everything about the Democratic party, but when the alternative is a totalitarian theocratic society ruled by the Christian Right that denies science and glorifies ignorance, I have no choice but to support the Democrats, even though I think that open borders and universal heathcare cannot coexist.

You obviously are having trouble grasping the concept of "not for sale".

Or as my Jewish, politically conservative, veteran grandfather says he'd say to Trump in the mama loshen: Gay kaken ofn yahm!

Why were so many people outraged when he recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital?
