Breaking! Irrelevant politician you did not know was running for president drops out of race he had absolutely zero chance he had of winning

Mark Sanford is out

BLOOMBERG – Mark Sanford dropped his challenge to President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, saying the focus on impeachment has made it impossible for his campaign to gain traction.

“You’ve got to be a realist,” Sanford said outside the New Hampshire statehouse. “What I did not anticipate is an impeachment.”

The former South Carolina governor and congressman announced his decision to suspend his campaign on the eve of televised impeachment hearings in the U.S. House. He centered his campaign on warnings about the national debt, but said Republicans were more interested in defending Trump from the threat of impeachment.

Buh Bye now!

Your Shameless Attention Whore of the Day is

Former Congressman, and radio talk host Joe Walsh

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) is reportedly expected to announce his candidacy for president, becoming the second prominent Republican to challenge President Trump for the party’s nomination.

The former congressman supported Trump during the 2016 election but has hammered the president for his conduct in the years that followed. Earlier this year, he sharply criticized Trump over behavior outlined in Robert Mueller‘s report that detailed the results of the special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign

“I don’t know how anybody can read this report and think, ‘This is behavior that we want in our president,'” he told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin at the time.

“Criminal behavior, who knows?” he added. “But, boy, dishonest, immoral, unethical? Heck yes it is. And I’ll tell you, Brooke, every Republican on Capitol Hill agrees with what I just said. They can’t say that publicly.”

Excuse my skepticism, but Walsh sounds like someone trying for publicity and relevance, nothing more

The Left Hates America

When you hope millions of Americans have to suffer a recession, lose their jobs, their homes, go deep into debt, and have their standard of living, and yes, their children’s, all so your party can win an election, then you are trash! You are not compassionate, or feeling. You are not a champion of people, you are simply a person who cares that your party wins. 

Tulsi Gabbard destroys Kamala Harris

OUCH!

CNN host Jake Tapper queued up the question for the Hawaii congresswoman, asking her about her previous criticism of Harris for calling former Vice President Joe Biden a racist. But Gabbard had another path.

“I want to bring the conversation back to the broken criminal justice system that is disproportionately negatively impacting black and brown people all across this country today,” Gabbard began before unloading on Harris.

“Sen. Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” she added. “There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

She went on to accuse Harris of hiding evidence that would have “freed an innocent man from death row” and that she kept prisoners past their sentence so as to use them as “cheap labor” in the state of California.

Her remarks sparked applause from the audience and caused Harris to shake her head, quietly saying “that’s not true.”

But Gabbard wasn’t done, as she continued her journey through Harris prosecutor past, accusing her of fighting to keep the unfair system of cash bail which, she noted, hurts poorer people “in the worst kind of way.”

Gabbard, to me, seems, at least in some ways reasonable, and yes, very attractive. She is certainly more in touch with at least some American values than Harris, who strikes me as a statist and elitist
