During the Overtime segment of HBO’s “Real Time,” MSNBC host Joy Reid flayed Donald Trump and explained to the panel that the damage the president has done to the U.S. that may never be repaired.
Asked by host Bill Maher if “America will ever be able to recover from Trump after he leaves office,” with Maher pointedly adding “I keep saying he never will,” guest Reid acknowledged it may be hard to make him leave.
“It’s going to very hard, ” Reid began. “I interviewed a lot of people from around the world who all said one thing: The thing that America has said about itself since World War II, we kind of suspected might be bullshit? Well, Donald Trump has made us feel, yup, it all was bullshit, we don’t believe it anymore.”
“Getting the world to believe again that we are the good people, the leader of the free world, the real democracy, the multi-cultural democracy — he’s cratered it,” Reid elaborated.
“The other thing is supply chains. So Donald Trump does a trade war, people stop buying our soybeans. Do you think because, Kamala Harris is president people are going to be, ‘Oh, we’ll buy your soybeans’ again?” she continued. “No, they’ve already found other people to buy from. They don’t just revert back. So, economically, a lot of the damage will be really really hard to undo.”

If Bloomberg is so rich, why does he steal workers’ wages?
Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.
Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.
Math explains why the Democrats may have trouble picking a candidate
From 28 declared candidates for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination down to just eight, many Americans are likely wondering how the party will ultimately make up its mind and settle on the best candidate.
As mathematicians, we wondered whether there might not even be a best candidate. In fact, this is an established mathematical paradox. The more candidates there are, the greater the chance there is no clear favorite.
Democrats to use debate to try to blunt Sanders momentum
Democrats take the stage for a debate in South Carolina on Tuesday in what could be the final opportunity for Joe Biden and the party's other presidential candidates to halt Bernie Sanders' drive to the nomination.
The 78-year-old senator from Vermont is in pole position heading into South Carolina's Democratic primary on Saturday.
Sanders finished in a virtual tie with former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg in the first nominating contest, in Iowa, and then went on to win in the next states to vote -- New Hampshire and Nevada.
Seven candidates will take part in the debate beginning at 8:00 pm in Charleston, South Carolina, on Tuesday night (0100 GMT Wednesday), the 10th debate of the campaign cycle.
