Things I’m Thinking About Tonight

IMG_1547Who the hell are these young women standing behind Trump in Pennsylvania? They are holding up “Women for Trump” signs, bouncing up and down like cheerleaders on the sidelines, cheering everything Trump says and making heart shaped signs with their hands.  Who are these people?  What kind of dumb are they from?  When Trump turns around, they bounce up and down smiling and screaming, trying to get his attention, like fans at a 1950s Elvis concert.  It’s revolting, just revolting.  It reminds me of how much women in Germany loved Hitler.  Good God.

  • Elizabeth Warren is getting some hate tweeting over the fact that she dared to mention that 16 Senate Democrats voted with the Republicans to advance a bill which would erode restrictions on banks put in place in response to the 2008 financial crisis. Warren was quoted in an article in the intercept: “Just this week we lost the first round in the battle of a bad banking bill — a bill that would take the reins off of Wall Street’s most reckless actors and put as greater risk of another financial crisis. When I saw a handful of my Democratic colleagues vote for it, it felt like a stab in the heart. Not for me, but for all the homeowners who were cheated and all the taxpayers who bailed out those banks. That is wrong.”
  • “Saying Democrats are helping to roll back rules on big banks doesn’t make me the most popular kid on the team,” Warren wrote in a Medium post on Thursday, adding that she has been “taking heat from fellow Democrats” since she called them out earlier this week. “But Massachusetts didn’t send me here to fight for big banks. The people of Massachusetts sent me here to fight for them.”

  • Thank somebody, Trump has finished this diatribe in Pennsylvania.  He couldn’t help attacking Warren, Maxine Waters (Have you seen her?  She’s a low I.Q. individual) and even Oprah.  He said that he hoped she ran against him.  And, he claims to know her weak spot.  “That would be a painful experience for her.” Trump threatens.  Lovely, just lovely.
