Published

on

Over a month after the already-historic wins by Democrats in the Virginia House of Delegates, the race garnered even more media attention Tuesday after a recount declared Democrat Shelly Simonds the winner of her seat by a single vote over the GOP incumbent.

Simonds win shifts the balance of power in the House of Delegates out of Republicans’ hands for the first time in 18 years — and naturally, Twitter was in a celebratory mood.

“Never let anyone tell you your vote doesn’t matter,” Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards tweeted in response to the news.

Simonds fellow candidate for the Virginia House, Elizabeth Miller, pointed out the significance of the single-vote win.

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps!
