01) “Vulnerable” Rashida Tlaib CRUSHES Primary Opponent


“Rashida Tlaib has won re-election!

DETROITERS PUT Rashida Tlaib in a strong position for reelection in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday night, as she beat back a rematch from Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones in the Democratic primary. While it could be weeks before a final vote count is known, Tlaib’s margin with most precincts reporting was 66 percent to 34 percent of the vote on Wednesday morning.

Tlaib’s seat was considered the most vulnerable among members of the so-called Squad, as the congresswoman faced off against a more or less unified Detroit political establishment and the ire of President Donald Trump. Tlaib’s presumed win comes alongside a host of down-ballot wins by progressives, including Karen McDonald for Oakland County prosecutor. Michigan progressives, crushed by the 2018 defeat of Abdul El-Sayed and the 2020 defeat of Bernie Sanders in the state’s critical March primary, could be seeing a revival of sorts.

01) Trump’s NEW Political Foes: Moms, Dads, and Veterans


“Trump is attacking America’s moms, dads, and veterans.

President Donald Trump is desperately trying to create a fight between federal agents dressed as American soldiers and protesters in many cities in the United States.

In Portland, in particular, a group of veterans and a group of moms and leaf-blowing dads helped work as protectors of the protesters. It created a PR disaster for the president, but he has doubled down, calling veterans “anarchists against our country” and the wall of moms a “scam.”

01) Krystal and Rachel: The Obamas’ SMUG Critique Of Uneducated Young Voters


“Krystal Ball and Rachel Bovard react to Barack and Michelle Obama’s comments about why young people don’t vote. According to the former First Lady young people ‘know more about the cereal they’re eating and the car they’re driving than they do about what the government actually does for them.’
