    I love AOC. Her stupidity – and how the queeeer, black and feminist millennials are eating her words like candy — is going to help Trump win 2020.

      Delusional thinking like that is exactly why trump will NOT win in 2020, if he even makes it to 2020 without going to prison.

        The threat of impeachment and imprisonment has been going on for more than two years now. We are still unbothered. Trump ain’t going nowhere until January 2025.

    I agree that Elizabeth Warren was wrong to ignore the rest of her heritage which is mainly European, and falsely claim to be Native American just to attempt to gain an advantage. Her so called apologies so far have not really acknowledged that what she did was intentional appropriation and she did it more than once. She comes across as very inauthentic on this subject which leads me to question her overall authenticity. I don’t think I can look over this if she doesn’t fully acknowledge her actions. All this stuff about her family telling her stories and not being a member of a tribe is crap. No one in her family told her that she was a Native American, they may have told it was part of her heritage somewhere down the line, but I’m sure she has enough common sense to know that they were not telling her to consider herself that. Her actions were intentional, not mistaken.
