Losers

Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman is a well-known comedian and even spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. On February 3, she tweeted out the following:               

 

This is just embarrassing. This is where the left and Democrats get their messaging wrong: some of their representatives support a military takeover of the United States Government.  I wish they could debate Trump over his ideas and policies, but personal attacks and a tweet seem to be a better way to challenge him for them. This is only going to help Trump when he is seeking support, because he will be able to lay out his positions and leftists will only be able to respond by calling him like Silverman stated a “MAD KING.”  

Senator Elizabeth Warren

Senator Warren was silenced by Senate Republicans for breaking rule 19, which states, “No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.” Warren was quoting a letter written by Coretta Scott King. Here is the video of the altercation.

It is true that rule 19 is not invoked basically at all. The last time it was enforced was in 1979. Mitch McConnell did not just randomly enforce it this time when he said, “She was warned. She was given an explanation, Nevertheless, she persisted.” Before Warren even thinks about running in 2020 she should at least follow the rules of the Senate.

This is all strategy and laying down groundwork for future elections. Senator Warren appears to be an easy candidate to win against in 2020. Republican Senators have been waiting for a moment like this to propel Warren into the spotlight, and it definitely worked. I’m not sure if Warren understands that she is following along with the Republicans’ plan, or if she sees herself having a good chance at defeating Trump. Either choice is a poor one for the Democrats. The Democrats lost last November because they did not have a message for the rust belt states. The common sense solution to win again is to not get an ultra progressive from Massachusetts who appeases liberal metropolitan cities and dissatisfies the places where Trump won decisively.

Another issue surrounding Warren is the controversy over her claim that she is Native American, but that claim has been in question for years. The irony is that she claims Trump is a racist while she claimed to be Indian to further her career. This is why Trump’s nickname for her is Pocahontas and has called her that multiple times at his campaign rallies. Here is a great article on the whole issue.  

Winners

Neil Gorsuch

Neil Gorsuch was nominated to be on the Supreme Court by President Trump on January 31, 2017. He graduated from Columbia, Harvard, and Oxford, and has clerked for Supreme Court Justices Byron York and Anthony Kennedy. Gorsuch was unanimously confirmed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in 2006. According The Washington Post, “Republicans are hoping to confirm the nominee by early April before a two-week Easter recess, allowing Gorsuch to participate in the final cases of the court’s term ending in June.” This link has great visuals on information about the process of being confirmed and how similar he is to Justice Scalia, the person he might be succeeding.

Melania Trump

The First Lady recently won a lawsuit against a Maryland blogger who falsely accused her as working as an escort and that she suffered from breakdowns.

“I acknowledge that these false statements were very harmful and hurtful to Mrs. Trump and her family, and therefore I sincerely apologize to Mrs. Trump, her son, her husband and her parents for making these false statements,” the blogger, Webster Tarpley, wrote in a statement released by Trump’s lawyer.

Melania also introduced the President at his rally in Melbourne, Florida. While introducing him, she recited the Lord’s Prayer to the crowd, who responded in loud applause. Here is video of Trump’s whole speech.
