A week that Democrats probably think is full of victories for them, as they’ve been thrilled not only to have the opportunity to talk about Trump-Russia again (and how) but also to have actual sound bites to add to their theory that Trump is basically a Putin puppet in the US.
If you take a step back from all things Trump-Russia, however, things aren’t looking great for the Democrats, and they seem to be just getting worse.
Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reminded the world she’s 28 and knows very little about…anything, on top of the fact that she hasn’t even been elected yet and is already making enemies in the party, causing further division.
Peter Strzok gave a disastrous testimony on the Hill last week, smugly denying all the things everyone knows he did to try to influence the 2016 election.
Senator Joe Manchin told Chuck Schumer to “kiss my you-know-what” over the latter’s futile battle to try and block Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
And oh yea, Brett Kavanaugh got nominated to the Supreme Court, threatening far-left influence over the courts for a generation.
To top it all off, Democratic sugar daddy George Soros gave a shocking interview with the New York Times recently, in which he called President Barak Obama, whose campaign he heavily funded, his “greatest disappointment”, praised John McCain, and said he doesn’t necessarily think of himself as a Democrat.
From the New York Times:
Asked if he would support Bernie Sanders if the Vermont senator won the Democratic nomination in 2020, Soros said it was too soon to say. He expressed displeasure with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, another possible candidate, over her role in ousting Al Franken from Congress: “She was using #MeToo to promote herself.”
He said his main goal as a political activist was to see a return to bipartisanship, a surprising claim in light of his lavish support for the Democrats. It was the extremism of the Republican Party that had prompted him to become a major Democratic donor, he said; he wanted the Republican Party to reform itself into a more moderate party. He said he was not especially partisan himself: “I don’t particularly want to be a Democrat.”
He spoke of his respect for John McCain. He even said he would be inclined to give financial support to moderate Republicans like Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, although he quickly walked back that comment: “I shouldn’t say that. That would hurt them.” And while the Republicans had made bipartisanship impossible, he didn’t want to see the Democrats become more ideologically rigid and confrontational.
He also added, shockingly for someone who’s forked over money for Black Lives Matter, March for Our Lives, and the Women’s March (the left likes lives and also marches, don’t they? Well, other than the March for Life? I digress…), that he is opposed to the far-left.
“I’m opposed to the extreme left,” he said. “It should stop trying to keep up with the extremists on the right.”
Gee, I wonder where he’s going to be handing out his dough next?!
