Hillary-backing mayor says Bernie’s ‘free Starbucks’ plan will turn US into communist Cuba

Published

on

The candidates and their supporters and surrogates are out making their final pitches as Election Day rolls on in the “First in the Nation Primary” in New Hampshire today. One of the advocates for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, the guy who rode around town on a kayak to warn people about the perils of climate change.

While stumping in the Granite State, Levine rallied supporters telling them that Clinton’s poll numbers are going up and that she’ll fight until the end. Then his pitch turned toward Senator Bernie Sanders and what Levine calls Sanders’ socialist revolution:

“We’ve seen it in Cuba, we’ve seen it in Venezuela, we’ve seen it in Nicaragua,” he told FloridaPolitics.com. So, social revolutions don’t usually turn out so well. As a matter of fact, everybody who’s gone through them is pretty much living in Miami now.”

When it comes to the 2 to 1 support from young voters for Sanders, Levine claims they’re being swayed by an impractical campaign promise and he has adopted the talking point Republicans are using about people wanting “free stuff.”

“Free education, free health care, let’s destroy Wall Street. Let’s have the middle-class pay for all of these free things,” Levine rattled off. “I mean, I understand now. Senator Sanders is going to be offering free Uber, free Netflix, free Starbucks, after everything else. That’s part of an unrealistic message.”

As a Florida mayor, Levine has been critical of Senator Marco Rubio who Levine referred to as “Marco Polo,” though not because Rubio tends to echo himself, but due to Rubio’s excessive absences from his job in the U.S. Senate. “He’s nowhere to be found and is just wandering all over the place,” Levine said. In an interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, Levine called Chris Christie “Toto” for pulling back the curtain on Rubio in the latest debate.

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."
