Who did not know what "DEI" stands for?

I'll admit, I did not know. I had to look it up.

But it was an insult toward Kamala Harris made by some unknown TN Congressman.

It is racist and sexist.

I sort of like the way the Democrats handled this nominating process.

Election cycles are way too long to begin with. It needs to be shortened to 3 or 4 months.

The sitting President can nominate his VP, or whomever he wants, and the states and their delegates can vote for him/her if they want. Or they can decide at the Convention.

It appears that Kamala already has the required number of delegates to be the nominee when they reach the Convention.

This seems like a reasonable and rational process to choose the next President, in my opinion.

Most of the delegates are leftovers from the previous election, so it is likely they support the President in power at the time. Therefore they can vote for the sitting President or the recommended candidate of the President. It seems it would make it simpler and shorter.

The Rank Stranger

Why did Trump choose J.D. Vance ??

We have read that he was a close friend of Don Jr.'s and that his eldest son had a lot to do with Vance being chosen?

I don't know if that is true or not?

In my opinion, Trump wanted the weakest, most sycophantic, least threatening person he could find, that would never challenge him and would give him complete loyalty.

Voila! JD Vance!

He could not have found a less-qualified person to replace him if something were to happen to him.

It's almost like a double-barrel threat to the head of America.

Donald Trump needs to step down.

I'm going to keep posting this until election day.

He is the problem with America. His divisiveness is the road to doom.

Same old, Same OLD...

Same old sexism.

Same old racism.

Same old lies.

Same old personal attacks.

Same old tearing down our country.

With the withdrawal of Joe Biden from the race, Donald Trump is now the oldest nominee of any major political Party to ever run for the Presidency.

Same old Bull.

Trump and Republicans had everything invested against Joe Biden.

It began with the Ukraine president and Hunter Biden. Everything was directed toward destroying Joe Biden.

But, both political Parties choose their nominee at their Conventions. Nothing is written in stone until their Convention is over. And even then the nominee can resign if he/she so desires.

Now, they have to start all over. Of course, they don't debate issues as a general rule. They do personal attacks. And that is what Kamala Harris should expect from them.

Not to paint with too broad of a brush, but they are a despicable lot of politicians. There is nothing admirable about any of them. Most are spineless cowards.

No one should feel any sympathy for these criminal coddlers and sycophants. As Liz Cheney noted, they have earned their dishonor.

"Trump Should Step Down" should be the new mantra...

He is the only politician that is dividing this country. On top of being a convicted felon, he has betrayed our country and cozies up to dictators. Never mind that he is a liar and a thief.

He never has a good word to say about our country.

He should step down and give our country a chance to recover from his fascist attacks upon our democracy and our institutions.

The best thing for our country would be for Trump to "step down".

But, he can't. He is running to stay out of jail.

The clouds are on the horizon. He is desperate. He has to win the election in November, by hook or crook, or he could be facing a Judge once again.

But the Justice System has patience. They will wait for Mr Trump to finish his appeals and his fake campaigns and his crusade against America. They will wait until the election is over.

Then Mr Trump will have some decisions to make.
