      It ain’t rocket science. Why is this mofo allowed to compete in the next election, when he’s the cause of holding another election?

    Can legitimate news outlets stop saying “Nigerian brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo.” These men were born and raised in Chicago! Imagine the news referring to wht men born and raised in here as Polish or Welsh or Irish rather than as AMERICAN CITIZENS. That’s right, wouldn’t happen

    Put his ass in jail too..I think he took a bribe for this plea deal.

    A judge ruled Thursday that federal prosecutors — among them, U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta — broke federal law when they signed a plea agreement with a wealthy, politically connected sex trafficker and concealed it from more than 30 of his underage victims.
    U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra, in a 33-page opinion, said that the evidence he reviewed showed that Jeffrey Epstein had been operating an international sex operation in which he and others recruited underage girls — not only in Florida — but from overseas, in violation of federal law.

    Money Trumps Misogyny: Media Coverage of Bernie’s Rollout Exposes Privilege and Complicity

    When Kamala Harris declared that she would be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president, the coverage of her rollout was replete with questions challenges she will face as a former prosecutor, whether she is progressive enough, and even about whether she is black enough.

    When Cory Booker declared his candidacy for president, the coverage of his rollout included (for some earthly reason I cannot fathom) concern-trolling about his being a vegetarian, and he got ridiculed for peddling “love and unity” in the era of Trump.

    When Elizabeth Warren rolled out her campaign for president, the issue of her heritage would never be let go, announced the mainstream media. Her DNA test was covered wall to wall, and questions abounded about how much more damage it will do if it is found later that she’d claimed native American heritage in a variety of places.

    When Kirsten Gillibrand announced she would be running for president, the media rushed to talk about whether she’d been a flip-flopper, having become more progressive as a New York senator than she was as an upstate Congresswoman. Then she got panned for the way she eats fried chicken.

    When Amy Klobuchar declared her candidacy in the middle of a cold, snowy day, the media proceeded to figure out if Trump’s quip that she looked like “snow-woman” really had merit. The media spent days talking about how she is a mean boss (of course for men, the word ‘tough’ would apply in place of ‘mean’).

    Then came the rollout of Bernie Sanders’ second hack at the Democratic nomination as a non-Democrat. The skies opened up, the light shined through, and birds sang. Bernie arrived on a white horse. At least, you could be forgiven for thinking something close to this is what happened from the media’s fawning coverage of Sanders as Savior. It went something like this:

  21. This is not the first time Franci Neely has confronted people for taking photos there. She ruined prom pics for a student. She needs help. Something is clearly wrong. I read she drove up in a blue Jaguar, barefoot, holding a dog and then unleashed the dog around an 11 month old baby, the baby was scared and screaming and then she assaulted the baby’s dad. If she had put her hands on me, it would have been on and popping. Lock this crazy mofo up for assault.

    Just a reminder that “white and male” is an identity. “Working class” is an identity. “Worker” is an identity. “Real American” is an identity. None of these are neutral, universal defaults. Running on them is also identity politics. https://twitter.com/JillFilipovic/status/1098260444379299847?s=17

    If you’re a working class Republican and you’re frustrated about paying into services to help others when you can barely help yourself, I get that. I really do. What I don’t get is why you blame the needy instead of the richest for placing the entire burden on you. https://twitter.com/emrazz/status/1098479616082223104?s=17
