    Call it what you will, there’s apparently very little they could do to cause you to withdraw your support.

    Saying he’s ‘not the best person’ is shying away from it.

    It's all about choices next November. If Sleepy Joe, Harris, or Buttigeg get the nod, I will give them a close look. Warren, Sanders, or any of the other hard progressives - I will vote Trump no matter what he says or does to piss people off.

    Why don’t you call Ilhan Omar an anti-Semite?

    You call her an anti-Semite, I Call Trump racist... Fair enough?

    Then we hug it out...:)

    I agree, although rather than vote for Trump I'll vote Libertarian again. Give me a reasonable Dem candidate and I'm in, for the first time in my life.

    Even if this costs Trump the presidency, which it likely will, I’m hoping Joe Biden wins the primary...

    Even if he’s a worse president than Trump... which maybe he is, maybe he isn’t... our country’s in safe hands with Joe Biden... and i’d Suspect we’d be more united under a Biden presidency....

    That said, Sanders, Warren, Harris, Booker, O’Rourke... all hard no’s from me... am I missing anyone else with a Legitimate shot at winning the primary?

    Buttigieg is currently 3rd for the nomination in Vegas. He's come out of nowhere, and I expect him to still rise. I don't love everything about him, but currently I'd certainly vote him over Trump. He's already come out against things like Medicare for all and free college for all, to give you an idea of where he's at.

    I heard Buttigieg speak a few times, outside of political events. He's a pretty bright person, and I don't think he's hard left Venezuelan style like the rest of the Dems. It's going to be hard to unseat Trump if the economy keeps rolling.

    If DT loses the next election he will have no one but himself to blame. He is his own worst enemy at times.

    He's stalling in the polls. Doesn't have support with POC. Troublesome track record in South Bend. But the polls don't mean much at this stage. Still, I don't see him winning. It would take a miracle imo. You can't win the nomination if you can't win POC.

    From the CNN Fact Check article:

    "It is possible to argue that Omar was making light of al Qaeda's crimes in suggesting that its name itself is what makes people recoil, or that she was implying that there is an equivalence between al Qaeda and the US army. But accusing her of praising al Qaeda is simply inaccurate."

    I'd actually go a step further and suggest that she was implying an equivalence between the United States, England, and al Qaeda... Which is absolutely insane...

    But even if it's simply what the CNN fact check suggested, that's still pretty egregious, wouldn't you agree?

    In the way that people say their names, in a discussion of how Arabic organization names are kept while we tend to use English words for other groups? Yeah, an academic discussion of how we say names is super-egregious...practically makes her a terrorist...or something.

    Law is such a nuisance, isn’t it. It was a consent decree. The government agree to it long ago to settle its illegal actions. Then Trump went back on the deal. Because that is what he does. Deals mean nothing to him. He has no honor. Breaches contracts to renegotiate. The way he did business. Problem here was the court order.
