Is ridiculous. And yeah he an asshole.



Dont you guys be coming at me now like i support sexual assault just cuz i think trump doesnt actually grab pussies. Thats weird and not justified
Except about a dozen women have said they've been sexually assaulted by Trump.

Also-- he refused to apologize for that language, which indicates he stands by it. Some things do require a serious tone. Scrutiny toward the president-elect is much different than scrutiny in, say, a card game.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is expected to be the incoming Senate minority leader, has thrown his support behind Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) to be the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

The backing provides a major boost to the expected candidacy of Ellison, who has the support of several liberal lawmakers, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and an array of progressive advocacy groups.

Schumer spokesman Matt House said that Schumer and Ellison spoke Thursday and that Schumer has decided to support the Minnesota lawmaker, who co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

“Without a Democratic White House, Schumer’s view is that the DNC is where the grass-roots organizing in sync with legislative battles should be organized,” House said.

The choice of DNC chairman has quickly emerged as a proxy for the direction that Democrats want to see their party take in the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss on Tuesday to Donald Trump.

Sanders and other liberals pushing Ellison argue that the DNC needs to shift its focus from raising money from well-heeled donors to building grass-roots enthusiasm for Democrats among working-class and middle-class Americans — including some of the voters who propelled Trump’s victories.

Former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who previously served as DNC chairman, announced on Twitter on Thursday that he is interested in returning to the job. Dean supported Clinton in the Democratic primaries.

Ellison, who backed Sanders during his presidential run, said last night that he would make an announcement on Monday about whether he will seek the DNC chairmanship.

Speaking on a conference call with members of Democracy for America, Ellison described his vision of the role the next chairman should play, saying the party needs to focus on “relationship-based initiatives that put TV as a tool, not as a go-to; which puts econometric modeling, not allowing that kind of expensive stuff substitute for getting Dems together around a pot of chili and getting to know them every single place.”

“And I think we need a chair who’s going to go lead some door knocks around this country in the off year, in the off year, so people get to know them and get to feel like this is their party, this is the party of working men and women of this country,” Ellison added.

The next DNC chairman will succeed Donna Brazile, a longtime Democratic activist who has been serving on an interim basis.

Well I have not heard about that stuff. I make a habit out of not making it a habit of following this stuff.

If Trump is sexually assaulting people then that's not okay the law should take its course there. If Trump thinks it's okay to grab the pussy when the pussy doesn't want grabbing, then I would say that'd be decent ground for not voting for him.


All I heard was this tape and with all the attention it got I was expecting something way more damning. After I heard it though my reaction was just like, that's it?

US Presidential Elections: Michael Moore's Morning After To-Do List

Quote:
1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.

2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn't let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must "heal the divide" and "come together." They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.

3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn't wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that's about to begin.

4. Everyone must stop saying they are "stunned" and "shocked". What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren't paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all "You're fired!" Trump's victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.

5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: "HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!" The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don't. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he's president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we'll continue to have presidents we didn't elect and didn't want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there's climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don't want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the "liberal" position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above).

If you want to eliminate the electoral college, how do you ensure that rural areas/states don't get taken advantage of by urban areas with higher populations. Vast swaths of geography could likely become irrelevant to presidential elections as candidates court only New York and California etc.

Without having studied it too much, my suggestion would be to do what Nebraska and Maine do, which is award the two state based votes to whoever wins the popular vote in the state and allow the other districts to support whoever they voted for individually. That solution allows for a more accurate representation of the popular vote, while still maintaining some level of protection for smaller states (the smaller the state, the more two additional votes beefs up their proportion of the votes).

As it stands, awarding entire states to a single candidate skews the results too far, and doesn't really do much to protect smaller states that end up not being courted anyways because they are a guaranteed red or blue, and I would say, is more of a problem than the fact that the electoral college exists.

I also think you shouldn't just 'grab' pussies.

They're easily startled and that's just not nice.
