Watch Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell on the GOP effort to convict Trump for President Pence

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday reported on the effort by “Republicans for the Rule of Law” to convince GOP senators that the party may be better off with Mike Pence in the Oval Office.

If Trump is convicted in his impeachment trial and removed from office, Vice President Pence would ascend to the presidency.

“Here it is in the wild. This is a billboard truck that puttered around Washington, D.C. all day, shuttling between the capitol and the White House and the Trump Hotel,” Maddow reported, showing images of the moving billboard.

Moddow noted that on one side the truck read, “Remove Trump for Pence” and on the other, “Pence, it could be worse.”

Maddow directed viewers to the website www.PresidentPence.com.

“Mike Pence is a bland, boring, completely ordinary conservative Republican from Indiana. And if the Senate does its duty, he’s going to replace the disaster currently in the White House,” the website reads.

She was joined in studio by MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell.

“So much for overturning an election,” O’Donnell said. “If Donald Trump is removed from office, you get the other guy that people voted for when they voted for Donald Trump.”

“Um-hmm,” Maddow replied. “You get Donald Trump’s personal choice of the guy he’d most like to succeed him, if anything happens to him.”

“Nothing to it,” O’Donnell added.

Here are 3 winners and 3 losers from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.

His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.

Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:

Winners

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice,  and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.

Someone online changed former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's information on Wikipedia during the Wednesday debate to say that he died on Feb. 19.

After being ripped to shreds during the MSNBC Democratic debate, it became clear that Bloomberg wasn't quite as prepared as the other Democratic candidates.

The Wikipedia article was also changed to indicate that his cause of death was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Bloomberg had several unfortunate moments, namely his refusal to release female accusers from nondisclosure agreements, he came out in favor of fracking, he blamed India for China's involvement in climate change, and many many more things.

At the Democratic presidential debate in Nevada, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stumbled after being asked when he will release his tax returns, when he suggested that he "can't go to TurboTax" because he's too wealthy.

Moderator: "You've said you'll release your tax returns, but why do Democrats have to wait?"

Bloomberg: "We do business around the world. The document will be thousands of pages. I can't go to TurboTax."
