Okay so place your bets. Who will be the VP nominee?  

I’m extremely impressed with Kamala Harris but know it’s highly unlikely. She’s fierce, articulate, highly intelligent and personable. I’m not aligned with all her platforms but this election the world needs her type of DNA to help flush out the existing shite that currently occupies the White House. My second pick would be Elizabeth Warren.

I’d be a bit surprised if it’s not a person of colour.  I leaned towards Harris but she’s also make an excellent attorney general. I’ve been reading more about Susan Rice.  Highly experienced.  Could be an easy candidate for President next time if she’s the VP this time.

Thinking the best move is for Warren to try and rally the Bernie troops. She would have been my #2 behind Mr.Sanders.

 

I highly doubt it plays out that way but one can hope

And you know, when you say ‘per capita,’ there’s many per capitas,” Trump asserted. “It’s like, per capita relative to what? But you can look at just about any category, and we’re really at the top, meaning positive, on a per capita basis too.”

@_ReaalAmerican_ was short and to the point, posting, “He ain’t bright.” And @eag_72 wrote, “The US has the dumbest president per capita.”

He also never lived in Michigan. 
Kinda reminds me of those fake Time Man of the Year covers Trump has on the walls in 5 of his public properties. 
Fake President...

I think that Biden should pick a woman of colour, either Harris, Demmings, or Abrams are all very capable with Harris leading the pack. Not a fan of Klobuchar, and my underdog pick would be Whitmer from Michigan

Biden is 77, Warren is 70 (Sanders is 78) 
That may be pushing it a bit, as a ticket.  Nothing against Warren, but think they have to go younger, here....

A QAnon supporter just won a Republican primary for US Senate

Jo Rae Perkins will be one of at least six GOP candidates for federal office on the ballot November 3.

By Katelyn Burns  May 20, 2020, 3:20pm E
  • In winning the Oregon GOP primary for the US Senate Tuesday, Jo Rae Perkins became the seventh Republican congressional candidate who openly supports QAnon, a pro-Trump conspiracy theory that maintains the president is secretly fighting “deep state” operatives and Democratic pedophiles.

Perkins won a four-way race for the party’s Senate nomination, earning just short of 50 percent of the vote. Former naval officer Paul Romero finished second with 30 percent. Perkins will face off with incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley in the general election on November 3, which Merkley is expected to win.

Biden almost has to do nothing.  Just blanket the country (and be sure to use social media) with videos showing Trump being Trump.  And Joe can be Nice Guy Joe.  Another reason to choose a woman of colour as VP and let her be critical.  Trump will clap back as he does, especially showing his disdain for women and poc's and it wont be a good look.

Biden has the charisma and zest of a Vegemite sandwich.   Harris may be a good pick, to add some youth and pop to the ticket and drive Trump even crazier.

Trump’s creepy praise of an anti-Semite’s ‘good bloodlines’ triggers furious backlash

Written by David Badash / The New Civil Rights Movement May 22, 2020

President Donald Trump once again is dog-whistling to his base. While delivering a campaign-style speech at a Michigan Ford auto plant that’s been retooled to manufacture personal protective gear, Trump decided to take a walk into history and praise the company’s founder, the infamous anti-Semite Henry Ford.
