It’s over, America. For the average WHITE household. Households of color, too. College kids. Minimum wage workers. … Super Tuesday pretty much stopped what I thought was Bernie Sander’s inevitable, unstoppable, march to the White House. But it wasn’t meant to be: the sick Dem donors/big wigs/money guys and gals – people WHO KNOW NOTHING about how the average American family lives and struggles – got diabolical. They made, begged, bribed (with cabinet posts?) Mayor Pete and Amy K. to drop out of the prez race HOURS before Super Tuesday. So these two candidates’ moderate voters could cast their millions of votes for the doddering Uncle Joe. Give Joe Biden some more Joe-mentum! Knock the wind outa Bernie!
😢What a shame. “What a sin,” as my late mom, Cecelia, would say.
😢The take down – not illegal, happens all the time in politics (a dirty business) – was deftly orchestrated by DNC, big Dem donors, the Clintons, Gore, all the corporate Democratic party leaders – the Dem Old Guard whom voters resoundingly rejected in 2016 – these idiots screamed: WE CAN’T RUN BERNIE AGAINST TRUMP IN NOV! WE CANNOT SAVE AMERICA IF BERNIE SANDERS IS AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET! Trump👿👿👿 will eat him up like a lil’ McNugget and spit him out! Trump will win the presidential race, and America CANNOT survive 4 more years of Trump! If you love your country, Amy K and Mayor Pete, DROP OUT. NOW!
😢So Amy K. and Mayor Pete did. Pete B. is a proud veteran who loves his country, a proud American who feels: My country before me. To his core. So he was emotionally manipulated by the big wig Dems into stepping down – even though his poll numbers were not too bad. And he was smart, decent, progressive … Would African American voters have come around? Maybe. Especially if he did sonething exciting and groundbreaking like make Stacy A. his running mate. Will old Uncle Joe do this? Maybe.
😢Amy K. was/is a youngish, smart politician who was doing a fab job on the campaign trail! Good to see women candidates out there going toe to toe with the entitled boys. Like Hillary – stocky and tough – Amy might have broken through …
😢But No. The Dems, the pol party of the future, haa annointed a 78-year-old guy who is ready for level 1 of the Alzheimers Unit of your local nursing home. If Joe Biden wins the presidency, he will be the oldest person ever to be prez.
Way to go, my Democratic Party!
