Biden.  Less insane or more insane?

Biden would answer "both".

Back on the Sean Spicer/DWTS thingie, a Queer Eye actor said he love to sit down and have some good conversations with Spicer and he got so much backlash he deleted his twitter and apologized.

I heard a commentator talk about the call to boycott the show.

He said something like, "Have you seen their ratings? People have been boycotting for a while."

Alright.  Let's go down the list with the frontrunner.

Biden.  Less insane or more insane?

Biden.   --  I don't see him getting any better,  just not inspiring as a leader.
Sanders-- No,  just no,  too socialist.
Warren  -- Likely to mobilize opinion against big money and corruption,  She's a good chance.
Harris   --  Don't have a strong opinion.

Klobuchar  -- Fair chance if given the opportunity

The others,  I don't rate much chance. 

I think a Warren/Klobuchar ticket would be a winner.

Will Warren get the native American vote though?

Yes.

I probably have about as much native American in me as she does; can I claim to be native American and get benefits?

I've said this lots of times already, but most white people from Oklahoma think they've got NA ancestry. My own family thought so, I grew up thinking so, but it wasn't a huge part of our family story as Warren's was. The bigger part of our family story is that we are kin to a notorious outlaw, lol.

It also baffles me that Trump fans care so much about this, when they don't care at all that Trump faked bone spurs to dodge the draft, he ripped off his employees, he filed bankruptcy several times for profit, he's a fake Christian, etc etc.

Trump lies all the time, no problem. Warren mistakenly believes her family story, unforgivable.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I should do a DNA test to see if there's any African American in me. Maybe I could get on welfare or something.

Funny thing about that is the "Pocohontas" attack is at it's heart a racist epithet, that will come back and bit Trump in the ass if he thinks it will hurt Warrren,  I suspect it will help her.

All she has to do is embrace the label, and then go on to explain that Trump is an asshole, and then launch into  "here's my plan to help native americans".  LOL

If Trump loses and "suggests" it was a conspiracy and his followers need to do something "Drastic" who here would start overthrowing the government/liberals/democrats?

It's totally understandable that a lot of people would be mistaken about their heritage.  We sort of get these stories from our parents and our parents are often morons.  For the longest time I thought I was half Irish.  Then I actually did some research.  Nope.  Almost all English.

That's not whataboutism, you nerd. You didn't make an argument to refute. I pointed out that you, and many others, hold Trump's opponents to a higher standard than you do Trump.

In looking over Warren's history, her achievements, the things she has championed in her life, I wonder why it is she is not admired by conservatives? She didn't come from wealth, but has amassed wealth. She got married and had kids. She's Christian. She has fought for the working class. (By "conservatives" I mean the regular people, not the politicians) I guess it's the same reason regular working people do not want Wall Street regulations?

As someone who has political opinions that sometimes agree with the left, and sometimes agree with the right, I can understand the criticisms aimed at the left. There's a lot of batshittery on the left. I don't even really know what Conservatives stand for anymore, though. It used to be for old fashioned values, for working your way up in the world, for family, etc. Now it just seems to be for liberal tears and other trollish nonsense.

No, I'm serious. I can't ask these questions of the Trump supporters irl, because they are my relatives and I don't want to be dis-invited to the reunions. lol

Trump doesn't seem to have any of the values conservatives hold dear. I really want to know why he has your support. He doesn't deserve it.

Isn't it obvious?
1. He's the only choice.
2. Hate > any other value.  Seriously, hate brings people together.  A black and a white supremesist will work together if they have a common enemy (ex: Mexicans). The Trump is aaalll about the hate.

After upwards of 15,000 replies,  to the question,  "Fox News told me"  is probably closer to the truth than anything else so far. 

I know wesker was trying to be cute with his answer, but sadly it's the truth for a lot of Trump supporters.
