    Repost! TELL.THAT.TRUTH.

    • Ametia says:

      I’m so grateful that Julian Castro got an opportunity to be on that debate stage and VERBALIZE where he stands on the issues. He was articulate, thoughtful, smart, and has a firm grasp of the pressing issues that affects my values.

      I think he learned a lot from his life experiences and has observed PBO’s tenure as POTUS.

      HE CAN.DO.THIS. He can go mano-o-stinko with 45.

    Asked where this version of Castro had been, he responds he’s been the same person. β€œIt’s the media who has not been covering me.”

    • Ametia says:

      True, Julian. And just observe and listen, because the media with ingest you, digest you, and spit you out with the quickness! ALSO TOO!

    I don’t like that Julian Castro was labeled a low expectation dem vs Warren a high one… Who are these folks giving this commentary? I had high expectations from him since his speech at the DNC him and his brother so seriously folks just stop with the obviously racist takes.

    • Ametia says:

      Don’t listen to the blathering commentary of these folks. It’s nonsensical, and at best biased and skewed towards stirring up conflict, chaos, for ratings.

      When are they going to learn, that smart, informed folks, like US, don’t depend on or care for their opining.

      i didn’t watch the debate, and chose instead to watch “QUEEN SUGAR”

      I appreciate SG2, posting the thread, so that I could catch up on the particulars. Thank you!

    Last reminder tonight: none of the plans that the Democrats talked about tonight will happen if Mitch McConnell is still Senate majority leader in 2021, so when KY Dems get their shit together and get a candidate to run against him, all y’all better help us out.

    Barnacle Head, Esq. (@Pumdaddy) Tweeted:
    White men on stage: We need to all come together as a nation work with republicans to get things done.

    Elizabeth Warren: I will bathe in the blood of Mitch McConnell and use his skull as a pint glass.
