The Worst Of 2020 Democrats
These are some of the Democrats who have created exploratory committees for a presidential run in 2020 against Donald Trump. Some of them have a laundry list of dirty deeds, incompetence and nasty politics that the media will try to cover up, but we will sort them out for you here.
The most embarrassing of Democrat prospects for 2020 is this woman. She has managed to escape accusations of racism and white privilege following a stunt in which she tried to prove a kinship to native Americans by claiming native American ancestry. When Donald Trump and conservatives offered to pay for a genetic test, Warren called their bluff and published the results of her own DNA test. Thinking the results proved her native ancestry, it was quickly revealed, even in mainstream media, that nearly half of native-born, white Americans share the same amount of small, insignificant native American ancestry as Warren.
Elizabeth Warren's native ancestry was so small and insignificant that she could not claim an official, legal membership with any native band or tribe in America. Some native tribes were upset by Warren's claims of ancestry and pointed to the fact that DNA tests are not accurate and that they cannot prove a definitive, tribal ancestry of any kind, as per the New York Times:
DNA testing cannot show that Ms. Warren is Cherokee or any other tribe, the secretary of state of the Cherokee Nation, Chuck Hoskin Jr., said in a statement. Tribes set their own citizenship requirements, not to mention that DNA tests don’t distinguish among the numerous indigenous groups of North and South America. The test Ms. Warren took did not identify Cherokee ancestry specifically; it found that she most likely had at least one Native American ancestor six to 10 generations ago.
Ms. Warren defended herself by saying she was not claiming to be eligible for membership in the Cherokee Nation — and she isn’t, given that her ancestors do not appear on the Dawes Rolls, early-20th-century government documents that form the basis of the Cherokee citizenship process. She said she was simply corroborating the family stories of Native American lineage that she has often recounted.
Memes and viral images mocking Warren's claims have been relentless ever since and will likely continue to dog her presidential campaign. However, if she wins the Democratic nomination, the stories will quickly disappear among a sea of Republican and Trump scandals, fictional or not. Since her claim of native American ancestry, Warren has engaged in other types of bizarre, pandering behavior, like this weird beer video.
You may remember Kamala Harris from the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. She was one of the Democrats that helped push the bogus stories of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh to fulfill the Democrat Party's political agenda and to ruin Brett Kavanaugh's life, career and reputation to achieve the party's goals.
What you may not know about Harris is that she was rumored to have had an affair with a married man... an affair that helped bolster her political career and future. Those rumors were nothing short of confirmed by Willie Brown—the California Assembly Speaker who Harris was alleged to have had an affair with—when he wrote a brief column for the San Francisco Chronicle:
I’ve been peppered with calls from the national media about my “relationship” with Kamala Harris, particularly since it became obvious that she was going to run for president. Most of them, I have not returned.
Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker.
And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco. I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians.
Willie Brown married his wife, Blanche Vitero, in 1958—which makes his relationship with Kamala Harris, more than 20 years ago, an extramarital affair. By the definition of the term, there is no denying that Kamala Harris knowingly had an extramarital affair with a married man. That gives our friend Kamala some serious morality baggage going into the Democratic primaries in 2020.
Kamala Harris also jumped on the bandwagon to refer to Jussie Smollett's fake hate crime story as a “modern day lynching”.
His last name won't bring up any positive connotations for most voters, but Julian Castro has a firm political career under his belt. He worked for Bill Clinton as an intern, was a mayor of a Texas city, was Obama's Secretary of HUD and has the “third generation Mexican” card to play with Latino voters.
On policy, Julian Castro is a full fledged, male Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, backing full universal health care, unlimited abortions and free education for all—with no plan to pay for any of it. When he was mayor of San Antonio, Castro supported NAFTA, but wanted the trade deal re-negotiated to include lengthy environmental protections and labor rights.
In 2016, Castro was found guilty by the US Office Of Special Counsel for violating the Hatch Act when he advocated for, and endorsed, Hillary Clinton for president while acting as an Obama secretary. In 2016, Castro also accepted paid-for tickets from CBS to attend the White House Correspondent's Dinner and was given free transportation to the Gridiron Club dinner for Washington DC's top journalists. Judging by this, Julian Castro will be the left-wing media's top dog going into the Democratic primaries in 2020—unless white boy, Beto O'Rourke, steals his Latino thunder.
“Ashamed.” That was how Kirsten Gillibrand described her right-leaning positions as a Congresswoman after spending years as a Democrat Senator. When Gillibrand moved to the Senate, her positions on key issues like immigration, taxes and gun control did a complete 180 degree turn-around. While serving in the House Of Representatives , Gillibrand was a member of the Blue Dogs—a right-leaning group of House Democrats.
Gillibrand has been best described as a moderate, since she has supported and sponsored conservative-backed bills in the Senate and once supported a bill that would have criminalized certain elements of the BDS movement against Israel. She will unquestionably lose the Democratic nomination within a party that has veered so far left that it can hardly be called American anymore. She will be called a neo-con and a flip-flopper, but she would fare well against Donald Trump or any Republican candidate in a general election—it's just too bad her own party will not let that happen.
These are the worst of the Democratic Party's declared candidates. Expect the field to grow and get worse as we approach 2020. Hillary Clinton refuses to rule out another run, Joe Biden and Beto O'Rourke will more than likely throw their hats into the ring, a few celebrities will want a piece of the action and the entire Democratic nomination process is sure to become the greatest circus of the 21st Century.
