Monday Morning Politics: Obama Criticizes Woke Culture, Stereotyping Black Voters, Stephen Miller Exposed

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. — 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. — John Michael (@lifeat25frames) November 18, 2019
