People should check out CAP’s Medicare Extra for plan. No middle class taxes at all.

I’m in the audience and I could share the mini focus group of Ohioans around me but I’m basically scared of getting yelled at.

Warren agrees with Tulsi Gabbard? I have got to assume that’s wrong.

Tulsi takes a completely unnecessary shot at Hillary. Just because.

I actually think a purpose of this election is to defeat Trump. Call me crazy. People who think that job will be easy are kidding themselves.


You know what defeats the hatefulness of Trumpism? The largest electoral margin defeat since Goldwater. That is what he deserves. A humiliating, historic landslide loss. And that is actually possible.But it takes a bigger coalition than your twitter bubble. Build the army.

It seems a Republican campaign went to the houses of older Democrats, claimed to be officials, took their absentee ballots and got rid of them. The Republican “won” by 900 votes. It’s 2018. Every major newspaper should be on that story. #NC9 

Dear sane people : Any time the name Hunter Biden crosses a person’s lips, please inform them of this.

I hope Barack Obama just shows up places in the public eye every couple of weeks through the next election just to remind people what it was like to have a decent, intelligent, compassionate president. So they know we can have that again.

Guilty people obstruct. Innocent people cooperate.

Just a reminder that if Dems take the Senate, Mitch McConnell is no longer Majority Leader, Chuck Grassley is no longer chair of Judiciary and Susan Collins is in the minority. Find a Senate race and start working.

Just a reminder for all reporters: Trump’s daughter has a stash of Chinese licenses. She’s doing business in China Right Now. You may want to check it out.
