Presidential candidate Andrew Yang blasted MSNBC on Saturday for their coverage of the 2020 presidential campaign — starting a dogpile on the network that caused #BoycottMSNBC to trend nationwide on Twitter.

“Was asked to appear on MSNBC this weekend – and told them that I’d be happy to after they apologize on-air, discuss and include our campaign consistent with our polling, and allow surrogates from our campaign as they do other candidates,” Yang tweeted. “They think we need them. We don’t.”

“They’ve omitted me from their graphics 12+ times, called me John Yang on air, and given me a fraction of the speaking time over 2 debates despite my polling higher than other candidates on stage. At some point you have to call it,” he continued.

“The whole time we have gotten stronger. This is actually bad for MSNBC,” Yang argued. “It will only get worse after I make the next debates and keep rising in the polls. The people are smarter than MSNBC would like to think.”

Yang urged supporters who want his campaign “to make sure we reach people directly” to donate to his campaign.

Yang has never run for office, but has put together a far stronger presidential campaign than sitting governors like Jay Inslee and Steve Bullock, sitting Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

His harsh media criticism of the network resulted in more people piling on. Here’s some of what people were saying:

In interviews with Politico, Democratic operatives and politicians say they are preparing legal and political strategies to stop the president from trying to steal the 2020 election even if vote counts show that he's been decisively defeated.

Experts: Lawsuit heading to Supreme Court would lead to ‘massive’ transfer of wealth from middle-class to richest Americans

Published

on

The Republican lawsuit that seeks to strike down the Affordable Care Act would save the richest one-tenth of 1 percent of Americans an average of $198,000 per year, according to an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

The case, which was initiated by 18 state attorneys general and backed by the Trump administration, is scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court a week after the November election. A Texas judge ruled in 2018 that the entire Obamacare law was unconstitutional, after the Republican-led Congress eliminated the individual mandate penalty in its 2017 tax bill and an appeals court then sent the case back for the judge to decide whether the entire law needed to be struck down.

Why is the Trump campaign sending rent checks to a mysterious Long Island PO box?

Published

on

President Donald Trump has charged his own campaign hundreds of thousands of dollars in rent for offices in Trump Tower for more than five years. But the campaign doesn't always send its rent to Trump Tower. In fact, most of the checks have gone to a post office box in Hicksville, New York, a suburban community on Long Island. It's not clear why, or who is receiving those checks. But experts say that the address may be of interest to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who in a court filing earlier this week made his clearest statements yet about the scope and focus of his criminal investigation into President Trump's finances.
