01) James Carville: Bernie Voters Are Like Climate Deniers


“James Carville has a warped worldview.

Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville warned that nominating Bernie Sanders to face President Donald Trump in the general election would be political suicide in an appearance on MSNBC Saturday.

Carville expressed fear on MSNBC that the media is not appraising voters of the risks of nominating Sanders, of whom he has been harshly critical.

“The entire theory that by expanding the electorate, increasing turnouts, you can win elections, is the equivalent of climate denying. When people say that, they are as stupid to a political scientist as a climate denier is to an atmospheric scientist,” he said.

01) Trump Rails Against Greta Thunberg


“Trump held a Two-Minute-Hate on Greta Thunberg during one of his rallies.

Donald Trump’s Colorado Springs rally has booed the name of climate activist Greta Thunberg, who he mentioned as he complained that he should be honoured as Time magazine’s Person of the Year every year.

Mr Trump attacked the 17-year-old by noting she had beat him out for the magazine honour in 2019, but noted that he has won in the past. He has previously complained about losing to Ms Thunberg, notably during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland earlier this year.

“This year I got beaten out by Greta — you know Greta?” he said, prompting the boos.

“Last year I got beaten out — I’ve won it, but when the world revolves around all of us, we should be chosen,” he continued, twirling his finger in a circle on stage. “I mean, we’ve won it. But we should win it every single year.

01) Honda e: the EV that electric car haters love – Jonny Smith CarPervert


“The Honda e is probably the most fascinating EV without a Tesla badge. In fact it’s probably more fascinating, because its design alone captured the attention and desire of legions of car enthusiasts who don’t even bloody like electric cars.
This 137 mile range Pokemon faced thing has a 35.5kWh battery pack which can be rapid charged in half an hour at 100kw. 0-62 takes 8.3 seconds with this 150hp launch edition car, but you will be able to option it with 134hp thereafter.

On paper it almost loses in every respect to its plug-in peers, but there’s a charm to the £27,000 e, and for some that’s enough. Using the power of finance you’ll be able to live with one from under £300 a month. Regardless of whether you give a toss about zero emission cars, there is no denying this kind of design is precisely what Honda does best. I hope they do more small, slightly-retro-but-not rear wheel drive cars in the near future. Oh, the power of dreams…”

01) Kaitlin Bennett’s Crappy Stunt Goes WRONG


“Kaitlin Bennett’s career is in the crapper.

Conservative media personality Kaitlin Bennett didn’t announce she was visiting Ohio University. But hundreds of students showed up to protest her appearance.

Bennett, a controversial activist who drew attention for taking graduation photos with an AR-10 rifle strapped to her back at Kent State University, said she was in Athens, Ohio, on Monday to film a video for Presidents Day.

But as soon as students got word she was there, crowds of protesters descended on Bennett as she walked around the campus.

In footage captured by Sarah Donaldson, digital editor for student paper The New Political, students lined all five floors of the university’s student center as Bennett and her bodyguard traveled down the escalator.
