Michael Moore has the key for the ways Democrats can keep winning in 2020

Published

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore laid out a bold strategy for Democrats to continue the record-breaking turnout seen during the 2018 midterm elections.

Moore joined guest-host Ali Velshi on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” to discuss the record turnout in the midterm elections.

In 2018, more voters showed up than in any midterm, topping 1974 — the first midterm election after 26th Amendment to the United States Constitution lowered the voting age to 18.

“Here’s the lesson I learned in Michigan, is that ballot proposals are the answer,” Moore explained. “George W. Bush and Republicans knew this in 2004 — they put 14 ballot measures in 14 states to outlaw gay marriage, to make it illegal.”

“That motivated people to the polls that might not have otherwise gone,” Velshi noted.

“We need for 2020 to have ballot proposals for legalizing marijuana, free college, equal rights for women, and outlaw gerrymandering,” Moore counseled.

In fact, Castor's line of questioning was so friendly to House Democrats, that some Twitter users joked that he was a "deep state plant" who's secretly helping to impeach the president.

CNN legal analysts rip apart Jim Jordan’s ‘nonsensical’ defense of Trump witness intimidation

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig blasted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for arguing that President Donald Trump hadn't engaged in witness intimidation by tweeting attacks on a former ambassador as she testified against him in the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan argued the tweet can't be witness intimidation because Marie Yovanovitch wouldn't have known about the attack if Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hadn't read it to her, but Honig said the GOP lawmaker's claim was ridiculous.

"His point is nonsensical," Honig said. "Of course, she was going to find out about a tweet that went out to 60 million people-plus. The law covers any way you look regarding timing."

According to Gregory, viewers might think he was naive to believe the president would not get personal and go after Yovanovitch, but that he was honestly stunned.
