Susan Sarandon scorched for attacking Elizabeth Warren at Bernie Sanders event (video)

Published

Susan Sarandon is still a pariah to many Democrats who believe her very active support of extremist Jill Stein during the 2016 presidential election helped elect Donald Trump president. And she’s under fire once again.

The Academy Award winning actress and activist on Monday spoke at an event supporting Senator Bernie Sanders, who is once again running for president as a Democrat. Sarandon appeared to throw shade at Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is currently battling the Vermont independent lawmaker for the number two slot in the polls.

Those feelings surfaced again, as Democrats blasted Sarandon, especially since Sanders is not a Democrat, and Warren cemented her allegiance to the Democratic party decades ago.

Lily Adams helped her grandmother Ann Richards win Texas. Can she get Kamala Harris to the White House?

Published

on

As a young child, Adams was frequently at her governor grandmother's side. Now she's continuing her family's political legacy.

It’s possible that Lily Adams’ political baptism at a Baylor University homecoming parade is what most prepared the Democratic operative for the tone of the Trump era.

Dressed in a red, white and blue dress, she tried in earnest to charm the crowds from a ’57 Ford pickup truck. One angry parade-goer remained less than delighted and wanted her to know it. He marched up to her makeshift float, got in her face and gave her the middle finger.

Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond

Published

on

In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.

As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
