So I guess it doesn't matter what damage she does as long as she keeps being able to pretend to be anti war?

Having a democrat on to bash both parties is a win for Trump. It really makes no different if Carlson pretends to like her because she is anti war. He is using her because he knows how divisive she is. She knows he is using her for that reason. Why is she ok with that? All for MAYBE 1 more debate night? When she could be setting herself up as a major figure in the party for decades?
She's not hurting anyone, most democrats don't seem to be fans of the DNC as it is and why would you say she's pretending? she's the only one who's actually seen war other than mayor Pete. I know Biden has been to Iraq 28,29. over 30 times but none of the rest have actually participated in war and seen what it really is.

But what people think of the DNC is irrelevant. She is letting her supporters think its rigged. What else can they think when she tells them that she is now 3/4 and they find out its "taken away"? She could have complained about the polls without doing that.

You don't praise Putin for war crimes if you are anti war. I can go along with anti regime change if you prefer though. But if that is true then she better run for reelection.

Those are all great points, but JinCA is fan of Gabbard so anything that he'd say is "shifty" if Kamala did it will be just peachy keen for Tulsi.

Nope not even close to the same, Harris is a typical say anything at the time for an applause line and try to clean it up later politician, Gabbard stands by what she says popular or not.

The head to head poll that's being cited is different than the other one, they don't seem to corroborate each other.
Kinda hard to believe he is beating Warren with his approval at only 40% also. Poll just seems kinda off.

I don't think Yang or his supporters can't point to polls of him beating Trump like Biden can. Everybody knows Biden so the polls have some real meaning. Plus Yang is tied for 8th in the primary in that poll.

Don't go on Facebook much, but was bored before work so figured I'd do my once every two weeks or so scroll through. Old co-worker on there had posted a Sharpie meme, and of course one of his MAGAt friends replied, claiming it was in fact the co-worker that was being bamboozled by the news and that Trump was correct about Alabama being in the path. He even posted a link to NPR which he obviously didn't bother to read because it still mentioned the fact that the head of NOAA was only a bootlicker.

That's what is really scary. This thing shouldn't even be in the news. The hurricane was originally going to cut across Florida and into the gulf. That changed. Forecasts change. The only reason people brought it up is because Trump brought out the stupid doctored map. You can tell in the video too that someone on his staff tried to hide it, but he specifically asks for it. Had he not done any of this, nobody would have cared about what he said.

Trump doing it doesn't even bother me, but the people who have to defend the emperor wearing no clothes is really scary. This isn't a President, this is a cult leader. Even if his politics weren't offensive to me, his constant lying and megalomania would.

This happens every time Trump says something dumb (daily). A bunch of people jump up to come up with these insane explanations as to why what Trump said was correct.
