    Great job Democratic leaders. There will be so many of you that votes will be split on who the people want to elect. Many won't vote at all since they're favorite didn't make it. Isn't this how Trump got into power? 🙄

    Ewww… and I thought she was so nice, too. Shouldn't be surprised, I guess. People always present their best side to the camera.

    I made her look like a fool in 2008, at the School of Environmental Studies, when she came to my high school trying to pass herself off as a regular, friendly politician who cared about climate change and renewable energy. I grilled her and made her looks so ill-informed that more that one of the teachers high-fived me afterward.

    I'm dismayed by the fact that the only description the Late Show writers could come up with for Senator Klobuchar's photo was "woman realizing no one touched her dish at the potluck". Yes, they said to themselves, she is a woman, and therefor the only thing fitting is to find a stereotype that has to do with cooking and petty jealousy among Real Housewives of Minnesota.

    Of course she's a horrible person. She's from the land where they layer their hot dish rather than mix it up as in Nort Dekotah.

    "Heartlanders" seem so nice, but they'll throw their lgbt children into the street with nothing, or take them to "conversion" therapy that's proven to be psychologically damaging; yelling angry mobs of them will gather to block women from accessing their abortion rights, and work hard at eroding women's reproductive rights; they will deface mosques and synagogues, and they live in sundown towns (where POC hafta be out of town by sundown) they fear will be overrun by The Caravans. It's like a white bread bagel from Safeway with cream cheese that's laced with arsenic.

    Her father was an alcoholic so she may had experienced verbal and emotional abuse from him. Probably all she knows to do is to verbally abuse people when she gets stressed. Already have a mean spirited, ill tempered, person in the WH so no need for another. I believe she is as they say and it has been reported Harry Reid had to scold her to lay off the abuse. Women can be just as abusive as men in word, action and deed so it is not about gender believe people when they tell you a rotten apple is a rotten apple and that is why we have Trump few listened when people tried to tell them he is a fraud.

    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

    The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3.

    Amy Klobuchar reminds me being so close to the Canadian boarder, if she wins that's a good thing, if not, then sorry Ontario and Minnesota, so that's where the Rand Paul had his traveling medical surgery at Paul told CNN in January last year that "I still have pain every day, all day. I don't have — I had the pain of 1,000 knives for about six weeks. I could barely move and barely breathe. I couldn't sleep. And so I am better than I was, but I won't say I'm back to normal yet. But I am getting better."
