“Mayor Pete” Buttigieg: 2020 primary star of the week – Slate Magazine

As a member of the lgbtqi community I was intrigued by Peter Buttigieg’s presidential run early on. so I started following him closely. I saw posts by influential gays like David mixner on Instagram praising him. I saw snippets of interviews with him and he seemed quite credible. And then I got to watch the town hall meeting that made him look like a star. he had a grasp of the issues that the present occupant of the White House would only wish to have even with all of the presidential briefings. He has boots on the ground experience and two terms of duty in Afghanistan. He’s a Rhodes scholar, went to Harvard and as a lot of people like to say just happens to have a husband.

in 2004 I had a viewing party for the Democratic National Convention at my place. I watched with my friends President Obama make his now famous speech and afterwards I turned to my friends and said he’s going to be our next president. They left, I’m not used to my friends laughing at me when I’m making a serious remark.

Can Mayor Pete be the first yay person in the White House? I’m not sure but we need to give him a chance by putting him on the stageof the democratic debates and let him show how good he is to the rest of the country.

By the way I just got his email regarding his campaign fundraising totals. His average donation was $27.01. A penny more than Bernie Sanders.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld exploring primary challenge against Trump – POLITICO

Historically Presidents that are challenged is a primary do not fare well.

What you up to this news is making my day. If Trump has to defend against the Republican it means that you’ll have to the Bates the shaman and spend lots of money to make sure he gets the nomination.

Thank you Bill Weld, you are a true Patriot.

BREAKING NEWS: Steyer won’t run for president in 2020 – POLITICO

Tom Steyer is a true patriot.

He’s putting his money where his mouth is. After last night speech from the Oval Office it has become clear to me that we could no longer wait for an indictment and we need to move on impeachment. I believe the American people will be behind this move. Thank you Tom Steyer for bringing this important issues to the forefront very early in this madman’s presidency.

New Trump campaign ad asks supporters to call 1-800 hotline to thank him or NOT – TheHill

Would it not be fun to spread some holiday cheer to the man who has made our lives miserable for the last umpteen years.

I refuse to watch the propaganda video from the Trump campaign but the number that they had said was 1-800 hotline which takes you to some credit card protection scheme. I guess around Trump you should have your credit card protected.
