>Tapper: "Do you think that it's a racist act to cast a vote for President Trump in 2020?"

Pete Buttigieg: "Well, at best it means looking the other way on racism. But I think a lot of people are wondering what kind of deal even that is supposed to be." Source: @kylegriffin1


All the racists, white supremacists, neo- and actual Nazis are in the Republican Party right now. This is not a partisan statement: it’s a fact lost on all TV anchors, but especially Jake Tapper.

But yes, dear media, force Democrats to answer for that, but they better not offend or alienate said racists, white supremacists, neo- and actual Nazis in the Republican Party or otherwise they’re just being the “intolerant left.”

Huh. Massive protests over a period of time have forced an elected politician to get out of town. How can that be?

Puerto Ricans, who are also Americans as folks need to be reminded, have bested their counterparts on the mainland. But yet, all I still see is caterwauling on social media and endless hand-wringing about the “death of democracy” and such. Perhaps that shrug emoji should become the mascot of the so-called “resistance.”
