The rumors are that Mark Zuckerberg is looking to run in 2020. He changed his religious status (formerly Atheist now Jeweish ) and has visited close to 50 states. Hell also be over 35 by 2020. Maybe a government job first and then run for President?

Sure, why the hell not? He's no less qualified than Trump.

(((Mark Zuckerberg))) in this political climate?

He is not, to my knowledge, a serial sexual assaulter or insane. He will go nowhere.

I think more voting age people know Tom Anderson than Mark Zuckerberg. Tom would get my vote, he was always so friendly.

Never too early to start!

The day after racially charged violence gripped Charlottesville, Virginia, President Donald Trump's re-election campaign released an ad attacking his "enemies" for obstructing his agenda.
The ad slammed Democrats, the media and career politicians for what it said were attacks on and obstruction of Trump's efforts while touting the President's record so far of overseeing low levels of unemployment, record-high stock prices and what the ad called "the strongest military in decades."

"The President's enemies don't want him to succeed, but Americans are saying, 'Let President Trump do his job,'" the ad said.

The Trump campaign did not respond Sunday to requests for more details on the ad, including when and where it will run and how much it cost.

Trump took office following years of decreasing unemployment rates, and those numbers have continued to improve during his time in office. The US economy added more than one million jobs since Trump was elected. The stock market has reached record heights by some measures as well, continuing a trend since recovering from the Great Recession, with a strong increase since the November election.
The release of the Trump campaign's new ad comes as the President continues to receive criticism for his statements Saturday in response to the violence that wracked Charlottesville over the weekend.

Trump currently has a 38% average approval rating from Real Clear Politics.

Republicans have control over the House, the Senate, a majority of the Supreme Court and the administrative branch. Who is the fuck is keeping him from doing his job, except for his own damn self?

From the NYT: Chants of "Warren 2020"
Elizabeth Warren Takes Aim at Moderates.



“The Democratic Party isn’t going back to the days of welfare reform and the crime bill.”

Is Senator Elizabeth Warren going to be the standard bearer for Democrats?

I hope so!

Good luck to her though. She's got Hillary and her daughter up for campaigning and I doubt Hillary wants anyone stronger than her when it comes to election time.

What's the rating of Congress, which includes Democrats?

You have that number?

The last I saw was 24%, but that's irrelevant because everyone hates congress as a whole, but loves their individual representative.

Trump is one guy. I'd assume a bunch of Trumps would rate even lower.

Lord knows one Pussygrabber-in-Chief is enough.

President Winfrey? She might be testing the waters with this speech.

I would like to think that after this Trump debacle, we will go back to nominating people who are actually qualified to be president. If it's going to be movie stars/celebrities from here on out there, I could get behind Oprah for president.

It will be interesting to see if President Oprah and her billionaire friends will do better than Trump and his billionaire friends. I can't wait until the Illinois governor's election this year to see which billionaire will win.

Shit, I posted this a year ago and I have no idea who Tom Anderson is. I guess I knew at the time. So much for him getting my vote.

My guess is that President Oprah wouldn't be quite as shitty to women and minorities as President Pussygrabber.

The sad thing for the GOP is that they can't play the "unqualified" card against Oprah without acknowledging that Trump has been an abject failure.

trump doesn't have any billionaire friends. He's like that guy in the internet ads; "billionaires hate him!", and also like the guy in those ads, he's full of shit.

Oh they would still play the unqualified card. Only it would be couched in sexism and racism as usual.

I just had a horrific thought ... if the racist pushback against obama contributed to us getting Trump, imagine what we'd get after an Oprah presidency?
