Self reflect on this piece from Rolling Stone.

Trump 2020

There's a reason that Democracy wasn't historically popular as a means of choosing your leaders. People are idiots. Republicans have found a way to exploit this weakness by attracting that demographic.

They have harnessed "Mob Rule". The rats and cockroaches come scurrying out in support of more garbage!

It worked in 2016 but it aint gonna fly a second time.

Yeah I love how I keep hearing about how democracy is mob rule.
Excuse me, Trumpism is mob rule!

Did I hear someone say the end of Donald Trump? Is word starting to get out about the bloodbath?

Matt Taibbi is one of my favorite curmudgeons.
Been a fan of his since he was writing for an underground Russian mag.

His "The Great American Bubble Machine" piece on Goldman should be required reading.

Hell hath no fury like a really, R-E-A-L-L-Y pissed-off suburban educated woman. Trump is toast.

We, collectively, all of us, need to get out and vote, get out the vote, and crush, absolutely crush, this Gollum and his frikkin deluded support system. I do believe that the majority of Americans are decent, honorable people. It is time for them to come out and prove it.

This is fast becoming a Biden-Warren race (sorry Bernie), as more (now 4) Dems drop their bids, and others fade. Who do we see as potential running mates? Biden/Harris (patch the rift)? Biden/Beto (sub O'rourke for O'bama)? Biden/Klobuchar? Warren/Booker? Warren/Buttigieg (wonk power!)?
