    If you're referring to a post from Hoho's little puppy, then why are you surprised?

    HoHo probably shares bookmarks with him.

    Mike Bloomberg plots spending blitz to support Joe Biden’s run for president


    Democratic presidential hopefuls Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg (L) and Former Vice President Joe Biden (R) speak during a break in the ninth Democratic primary debate of the 2020 presidential campaign season co-hosted by NBC News, MSNBC, Noticias Telemundo and The Nevada Independent at the Paris Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 19, 2020.

    Key Points

    • Billionaire and former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is plotting a massive spending blitz to back Joe Biden’s quest for the White House.
    • The former New York mayor and his advisors are discussing whether his spending will include a major donation to a pro-Biden super PAC, the Biden-Democratic National Committee joint fundraising effort, or another group.
    • “As Mike has said, he supports Vice President Biden in defeating Donald Trump. We’re currently looking at how to best support Vice President Biden as well as Democratic victories up and down the ballot in November, just as Mike Bloomberg has done in previous cycles,” a Bloomberg spokesperson told CNBC.

    From CNN – bias right rag that they are…

    http://edition.cnn.com/2020/05/18/politics/donald-trump-james-woods-2020-reelection/index.html

    How Donald Trump wins again, in 3 sentences
    Analysis by
    Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
    Updated 1604 GMT (0004 HKT) May 18, 2020

    (CNN) James Woods is that rare thing in Hollywood: A supporter of Donald Trump. And on Sunday, Woods perfectly encapsulated the message that could get Trump reelected.

    He
    tweeted this (in part):
    "Donald Trump is a rough individual. He is vain, insensitive and raw. But he loves America more than any President in my lifetime."

    Trump retweeted that assessment; "I think that is a great compliment,"
    he wrote. "Thank you James!" It's, of course, not a great compliment. If someone called you "vain, insensitive and raw," would you be flattered?

    But Woods' tweet is 100% right when it comes to how Trump can win again in November.

    The simple truth is that Trump was not (in 2016) and is not now someone who a majority of Americans say they like or admire. Consider these numbers from the
    2016 exit poll:
    1) Less than 4 in 10 voters in 2016 said they had a favorable opinion of Trump
    2) Just 1 in 3 thought Trump was honest and trustworthy
    3) Only 35% said that Trump had the right temperament to be president

    How did Trump win? Because people may not have liked him but they wanted radical change in Washington and believed that he could bring it about. Four in 10 voters said that the most important quality in a candidate was one that "can bring change," among that group, Trump beat Clinton 82% to 14%.

    The message Woods is offering up for Trump in 2020 is simply a variation on that original theme. And it goes something like this: Yeah, he's a jerk. And no, I wouldn't want him have him over for dinner. But when it comes to actually getting stuff done for America, there's no one better.

    Now, to buy Woods' message at all, you have to believe that Trump has actually achieved results for American during his first term. His backers would point to tax cuts, a re-orienting of America's role in the world community, changes in trade policy and the overhauling of the federal judiciary. His detractors would suggest that all of those decisions have actually done more harm than good.

    The real question, though, is not what people who already support Trump or already hate Trump think of the "he's a jerk but he's an effective jerk" message. What really matters is whether voters who remain undecided on whether or not to give Trump a second term think of it.

    Woods' case was easier to make three months ago, when unemployment was low, the stock market was soaring and Trump could credibly take credit for all of it. Now, because of the massive effects of the coronavirus -- and the shutdowns used to deal with its spread -- that economic case is significantly weakened.

    But it is still a fact that the only real path for Trump to a second term -- and I continue to believe that path is quite narrow -- is through a message that doesn't try to make people like Trump but rather forces them to acknowledge that he is getting things done.

    Trump is, quite simply, not likeable. He says and does things on an almost-daily basis that even many of his supporters think are over the line of acceptable conduct for a president or, really, for anyone.

    Nothing will change that. Or certainly nothing that he can do between now and November. The only way he wins is to make the case that may not be your idea of what a president should look and act like but that he is someone who knows how to make change in Washington. (He also likely needs to disqualify Joe Biden, which his campaign is already working very hard to do.)

    If that works, it would represent a fundamental change in the way in which we elect presidents. Conventional wisdom has long dictated that people vote for someone
    they'd want to have a beer with. Aside from his most unquestioning acolytes, it's hard to imagine most people would want to have a beer with Trump.

    But will they vote for him anyway? They did once. And Woods (and Trump) have to hope they will vote for "their jerk" once more.

    With his popularity documented in the numbers above, Donnie The Mouth Won - 304 to 227.
    So yes, there is a fundamental change in the way in which we elect presidents.

    Indeed.

    Now all corrupt, inept, pathological liars have a path through an antiquated system that can elect someone with a minority of the vote.

    funny when Obama was buying elections in Chicago, it didn't matter how much how corrupted he was

    Newsflash, they all are, so stop picking on Trump like it was a rare thing, because sadly it's not.

    Attack him instead for being a racist pig, that would be more truthful

    Like the time Trump shot someone in the stomach at his private resort in Florida, paid off the local cops and had his illegal Mexican staff flown back to Mexico and paid them for their silence . . . Melania was also beaten and had to have a medical team stay at then resort after it was proven that Barron isn't Trump's child

    Yes, it normally involves a concerted campaign of lies by Republicans.

    This time it's the fictional "Obamagate", and they are hoping that throwing enough of this shit will cause some to stick to Biden.

    Fortunately Biden is not as unpopular as Clinton, plus I suspect a lot of Americans will be desperate to get out and vote the baldy orange cunto out, probably more than they would actually be bothered if it were Biden against anyone else.

    Don't be surprised if the Republicans try and push another left-leaning third party candidate at the last minute.

    With all the criticism of Hillary . . . just look at what 60 million people (plus those who didn't vote) thought would be better - Trump

    Trumps win wasn't about how bad Hillary was as a candidate.

    Trump won because he was a political outsider. His win was a statement of the disgust Americans have with Washington and pay to play politics.

    Trump could never win. His attempt was considered a publicity stunt and naught but a joke. There was no possible way he could beat the Bush Dynasty and secure the Republican slot.

    When he did the Democrats were smiling from ear-to-ear the Presidency was theirs.

    And, right up to the eleventh hour - actually the twelfth hour, there was absolutely no doubt in anybodies mind that the Glass Ceiling had been shattered.

    Little did they know...

    It will be interesting to see what the people have to say this go around. Will the USA return to the Washington Political Program or give the political outsider Big Mouth Don four more?

    Stated another way, Did The Donald talk himself out of a job?
