Jamil Smith, senior writer at Rolling Stone, talks about the latest 2020 news, plus national political stories that are not impeachment-related."It's right up there with the stereotype that black voters are homophobic," says @JamilSmith about pundits insisting that black democrats are less progressive than white democrats. pic.twitter.com/PNSvef1R0I
— Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) November 18, 2019I am disappointed but not surprised by Obama’s suggestion that Dems swim in the middle lane. While I have the utmost respect for him, it was this tendency that was limited the greater success of his presidency, IMO. #Warren2020
— Amy Reyer, PHD (@artoflivingslow) November 18, 2019@BrianLehrer I would agree. Most people are behind @JoeBiden because they are incredibly scared of a second trump term. All of the progressive issues, when polled, the majority of the public are behind. @BernieSanders 2016 platform overlapped w/the tea party on five key issues.
