  • I'm torn between Biden (who I think would be a "safe" President but would potentially bring some much needed normality in the US) and Pete as I think he'd give the establishment a right shake up.

      I think this is exactly the tension many democrats are facing. Do you go for someone you know (ie. “Safe”) vs choosing someone completely outside the box?

      IMO people may be looking toward the devil they know after the Trump years.

        The way the world is going, he’ll walk it and then Donald Trump Jr will be in for the next 8 years.

          Yeah, I feel like Trump's going to win the electoral college and lose the popular vote by an even bigger margin.

          • Michael Bennet is also running for president. I've seen some of his speeches in Congress and I think I like him.

            Joe Biden for me is a big misstep. No one attached to the old political system should be running.

            • There are just way too many running now. I can only think these splinters are causing some candidates to not consolidate support.

              • A fake viral video makes Nancy Pelosi look drunk. Facebook won’t take it down.

                A doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that makes it seem as though she’s drunkenly slurring her words at a public event has spread across the internet in recent days, but Facebook doesn’t plan to take it down. It’s the latest example of the ease with which misinformation can spread online.

                ...

                The video continues to be widely available online. YouTube took it down, but Facebook has left it up, even though it’s acknowledged it’s fake.

                ...

                Facebook’s third-party fact checkers reviewed the video on Thursday evening and rated it as false, and now the company is reducing its distribution and showing additional context alongside it in the form of a related article in news feeds where it appears. But Facebook’s community standards don’t require that information posted on the platform is true.

                ...

                Combine the rise of deepfake videos with social media companies’ unwillingness and inability to effectively moderate misleading content, and the Pelosi video is likely just one of many more altered videos we’ll see as we head into the 2020 presidential election.

                Full article: https://www.vox.com/recode/2019/5/24...facebook-trump
                It's going to be a mess in 2020. The question is whether these social media companies have more of a responsibility?

                  • The “squad” and that dem debate have secured another term for Trump, I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t win again tbh. The 2020 election will be entertaining to watch regardless I think I’m the only person here who has come to like Trump and do not think he is everything liberal media accuse him of being, perhaps I’m mad.

                        Trump's tactics backfired at the last House of Representatives election, I think demographics might be part of his and Republican Party downfall unless state governments come at real lengths to restrict voting rights and turn to full-on voter purge.

                        • It's sad, but racists being racist has lost a bit of its shock value for me.

                          And not just for me, it seems. At literally any moment of the past 50 years, immigrants and kids in cages, racist attacks on US congresswomen and white nationalist chants at the president's rallies would've been enough to end that presidency in a second. But today, the president's approval ratings won't even take the slightest hit from any of that. Worse, half of the country will turn on these women for speaking up.

                          Yet somehow some people here still believe it's 'the left' or 'the liberal media' who have radicalized.

                              Perhaps you are mad. I don't know.
                              I surely know you are clueless, that is for sure. Someone who defends the coal industry, who threatens to start wars left and right, who is corrupt and violates democratic principles on a daily basis.

                              But please keep telling us how much good he's done to the world. I'm sure you are in favour of Brexit as well. Have fun.

                                  I'm flabbergasted by that, too. And it wasn't even a slow process that led us there. All of a sudden things like these don't seem to matter anymore, and it's shocking. It seems like humanity needs WW3 to wake up again.

                                    I get it, he's such a likable kind hearted man. Him telling 4 American Woman to go back to their countries because they aren't White was clearly spun by liberal media!!!.
