      IA Democrat Chair:

      Caucus results to not be released. Everyone will get a trophy.

    2. CG says:

      A little known party rule is that in case of a technological problem, the most recent winner of the Iowa Caucus gets to award the delegates.

      Hillary Clinton is mulling over her choice…

    3. Marv says:

      Watching CNN. There are no results from the Dem Caucus.
      The panel is very irritated. Axelrod said that 8 years ago, Obama had already had given his victory speech and was airborne enroute to NH.

    4. Phil says:

      Three hours and not a single result.

      “Technical trouble”

      Yeah, I bet.

      I’m sure Bernie people have lots of faith in the uh, technical staff. LOL.

    5. CG says:

      There is a problem with the results being reported via App?

      Maybe they just need to keep swiping left…

    6. PresidentPaul! says:

      They’ll release the results a couple weeks from now after bernie can’t win anymore.

    7. BayernFan says:

      When are Dems and the media going to blame Trump and/or Russia?

    8. PresidentPaul! says:

      They keep talking about amy klobuchar. Reminds me of the media pumping Jeb.

    9. Phil says:

      BayernFan, you mean they haven’t already?

    10. mRviTO says:

      The DNC figures those flyover hicks can’t count anyway.

    11. PresidentPaul! says:

      Putin hacking the Iowa results trying to get Bernie elected.

    12. Marv says:

      Hi Phil

      How are you and Mrs. Phil doing? Well, I hope.

    13. CG says:

      Is the App called Taxr or Spendr?

    14. mRviTO says:

      Those two precincts I mentioned finally came in. YUGE for the socialists.

      Final alignment… only 33 frickin precincts!

      i feel like the words quality control are French for ‘it’s time for a fking revolution

    16. jason says:

      The Rs have no problem, they want to go home.

      88% reporting

      Trump 29,097 97.11%
      Weld 459 1.53%
      Walsh 407 1.36%

    17. mRviTO says:

      All 34 precincts with a first tally have reported a final tally….

      It’s like they just stopped.

    18. CG says:

      This App worked about as well as the Obamacare website rollout.

    19. lisab says:

      Sen. Lisa Murkowski, swing-vote Republican, says she ‘cannot vote to convict’ Trump

    20. CG says:

      Iowa has 99 Counties and not a vote has been won…

    21. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Sad this is happening. If Bernie Sanders loses, this could be his last election; if Bernie and his socialist clique wins, this is could our last election.

      Trump To Deliver State Of The Union In Scuba Gear To Avoid Drowning In Librul Tears

    24. Wes says:

      So Democrats are going full Chavez in Iowa.

      Wow.

    25. CG says:

      Bloomberg just bought the App from the IA Dem Party for 12 delegates.

    26. mRviTO says:

      Live outside Iowa Dem HQ:

      https://gph.is/217xISR

    27. jason says:

      Collins will acquit too.

      Romney is the only question, the betting markets are like 5-1 acquit but let’s see.

      195 Rs in House and what 52/53 in the Senate have no problem seeing this as a partisan charade. If Romney does the right thing, that is 248 elected Rs that reject this attempted coup, plus 2 Dems in the House and maybe 2/3 in the Senate.

    28. CG says:

      Send Klobuchar down to the party HQ to give them a piece of her mind..

      (Then again, this is probably working out conveniently for her tonight)

    29. PresidentPaul! says:

      https://vimeo.com/138779240

      Very interesting BBC documentary on a type of climate change known as “global dimming” as well as a decrease in the rate of evaporation.

    30. jason says:

      I guess the Dems want to show how efficient they would be at governing.

    31. lisab says:

      the rumour is that bernie won fairly big

      but …

      the dems wanted to prevent a prime-time victory speech

    32. CG says:

      They are on hold with Tech Support.

      Some guy named Kenny in Mumbai might get to pick the next President.

      Just in: Our first official statement from the Iowa Democratic Party.

      The big news here is TURNOUT. They say it’s on pace for 2016, which is LOW. 172,000 turned out in then, down from the record-high of 240,000 in 2008.

    34. PresidentPaul! says:

      Bernie has to go to bed by 9 so they only had to delay a little bit.

    35. jason says:

      Trump should offer to read out the IA caucus results during SOTU as a public service.

    36. Greymarch says:

      Smart of Klobuchar to get on TV first, before everyone goes to bed. This is her largest audience ever, and she has it all to herself.

    37. PresidentPaul! says:

      This seems like one of the republican caucuses that Ron Paul wins by 70% and then all of a sudden McCain takes all the delegates somehow.

    38. CG says:

      Howard Dean proposes a Scream-Off to determine the winner.

    39. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Fully expect Trump to take a dig at the Iowa tech breakdown in his speech tomorrow. Really surprised they did not have a back-up system of reporting results should the tech not work. The faith people have that tech will always work properly is nuts; more times than not it does not initially work

    40. CG says:

      This much I know.

      If at whatever wee hour they announce the result and Bernie did not win, his supporters will be ballistic.

      Then again, if they announce in some wee hour that he did win, his supporters will still go ballistic.

      Not blaming this on the Russians and Trump is a strategic mistake.

    41. CG says:

      Biden is speaking without a teleprompter and literally cannot stop saying “folks.” This is as uncomfortable as hell.

    42. jason says:

      “Some guy named Kenny in Mumbai might get to pick the next President.”

      His real name is Premjit Sandeep Agarwal, Kenny is his “phone” name.

      Currently he is in intense negotiations, they have routed him through to Bloomberg for a final resolution.

    45. jason says:

      This seems like one of the republican caucuses that Ron Paul wins by 70%”

      What caucus was that, was it featured in the Twilight Zone?

    46. Just Fill Out The Census says:

      Wow a lot of people are still awake. Surprising given that the age distribution for this site skews heavily towards the over +55 club.

      You guys must’ve taken your Metamucil for Iowa Caucus night.

    47. CG says:

      Buttigieg is the only one who is going to look “Presidential” tonight and it won’t even be close.

    48. CG says:

      No cable network is covering Warren’s speech.

      Just CSPAN

    49. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      44. Actually all good Democratic Socialists know this is a conspiracy to deprive Sanders of the nomination. It is time for Sanders to run third-party as the Democratic Socialist candidate.

    50. jason says:

      Smart of Klobuchar to get on TV first”

      Vast majority of viewers in the Eastern and Central time zones have already signed off.

    51. CG says:

      Buttigieg waited them all out to go last. (Not sure if Yang got any coverage.)

      Then again, he can probably stay awake the latest.

    52. jason says:

      Maybe Noncensus can make a prediction and ensure the loss of at least one of the contenders.

    53. lisab says:

    54. NYCmike says:

      Very good jokes from many of you tonight!

      Thanks for that!

      Also, remember that “CG” will leave the top of his ticket blank, and thinks that any of the Democrat candidates is the lesser of 2 evils.

      Biggest joke of them all.

      Iowa 2020 Presidential Republican Caucus
      Last updated: 2/3/2020, 11:47:46 PM
      Candidate Votes Percent

      Donald J. Trump * 30,099 97.11%
      Bill Weld 474 1.53%
      Joe Walsh 421 1.36%
      93.56% reporting (1570 of 1678 precincts)
      | 30,994 total votes
      | *Incumbent

    56. mRviTO says:

      The Iowa Caucus didn’t kill itself.

    57. CG says:

      I am imagining Sanders saying all of this in a convention acceptance speech and it’s like he’s a Jewish Barry Goldwater. Completely speaking to his base.

      Then again, Barry Goldwater had a Jewish father too..

      Maybe when Trump gets impeached in his second term, it will take.

    58. jason says:

      Give Corey a break.

      Remember Bill Kristol said all the Never Trumpers are Democrats now.

    59. Just Fill Out The Census says:

      I predict the TrumpTards are gonna be depressed when naranja loses.

    60. CG says:

      This will be a given…

      The Iowa Caucuses will never be first again.

    61. Bitterlaw says:

      You have to work really hard to F up a system where people “vote” by standing in groups in front of other people. You cannot be more transparent than that. In 2024, Iowa will distribute ladders so people can climb up, take a picture of each candidate’s group and the total group in each site and send it to somebody with good ideas to count the people.

    62. CG says:

      If I am lucky, the Democrats will turn to Bloomberg out of panic and I can painfully force myself to vote for him against Trump.

    63. jason says:

      I predict the TrumpTards are gonna be depressed when naranja loses.”

      Wow, Trump’s chances just about doubled…

    64. Victrc says:

      You know it’s bad for Biden when he has to have his lawyer send a letter threatening that if they release numbers it will take action!!

    65. jason says:

      I am hoping Corey doesn’t get lucky.

    66. Bitterlaw says:

      Corey claims he did not vote for Hillary but will painfully vote for Bloomberg? Why? Because Bloomberg is Jewish? Such blatant pro-Semitism!

    67. CG says:

      Biden’s letter should say we are boycotting the entire thing. Please do not announce any votes for us at all.

    68. Bitterlaw says:

      I will leave that hanging curveball in 66 for Lisab to hit out of the park.

    69. CG says:

      Nothing to do with Bloomberg being Jewish, but he will certainly stand by Israel which is important to me.

      He also opposed Obama’s Iran Deal which is a litmus test for me.

      As long as he does not propose eliminating the Hyde Amendment, I can make myself vote for him against Trump.

      Hillary was disqualified ethically and ideologically.

    70. jason says:

      Corey already declared a far leftist would be better than Trump, so I don’t understand why he wouldn’t support the old Bolshevik.

    71. CG says:

      Because I actually have principles.

    72. CG says:

      Iowa Democrats just found a bag of Al Franken for Senate ballots.

    73. Bitterlaw says:

      Breaking News – Federal Judge orders polls to remain open in East St. Louis in case Iowa needs some votes.

    74. lisab says:

      I will leave that hanging curveball in 66 for Lisab to hit out of the park.

      #66 I am hoping Corey doesn’t get lucky.
      ————————

      a sentiment shared by women everywhere

    75. jason says:

      Bloomberg is a big nanny state proponent, a firm believer in climate change alarmism, a hater of the 2nd amendment, and his new tax plan is asinine. By reneging on stop and frisk, a real achievement in his administration, shows he is a pandering fool and will be a pawn of the leftists in his party.

      But put a gun to my head, I would prefer him as President than any of the others, because he at least has run a successful business.

    76. lisab says:

      Because I actually have principles.
      —————————-

      ummmmmmmmmm … more like rules of thumb

    77. Bitterlaw says:

      Lisab goes yard.

    78. CG says:

      If this were the Real Estate business, Trump could declare himself the winner of the D Caucus as well.

    79. CG says:

      jason had me at “put a gun to my head…”

      Just kidding. I don’t even own one.

    80. jason says:

      Trump campaign: Iowa Democratic “caucus mess” is “the sloppiest train wreck in history”

      Slight exaggeration, but it is a clusterf-ck for sure.

    81. jason says:

      Well we have the opinion of a communist..

      Van Jones calls it a “debacle”

    82. CG says:

      Past IA Dem winners- Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Tom Harkin, Dick Gephardt, Walter Mondale, and Jimmy Carter make claim to their previous wins and announce their candidacies….

    83. lisab says:

      by messing this up

      the dem establishment have assured bernie supporters will never support bloomberg or biden

      it is sanders or not voting

    84. jason says:

      They should have stuck with “quality control”

      “State Democratic Party says there are no underlying issues with results but “inconsistencies” will take time to resolve”

      No underlying issues but inconsistencies….

    85. CG says:

      Warren’s DNA tests didn’t take this long to come back.

    86. Phil says:

      Democrats have managed to copy the election night Venezuela model. No vote counting as it occurs – just release the results all at once and trust the “official” results.

      Seems fitting.

    87. mRviTO says:

      “Inconsistency”

      Translation… Bernie is first, Warren is second, and Biden is fifth.

    88. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      84. Or Sanders may run as the Democratic Socialist candidate. They have already nominated him as their candidate. He is not going to be wrongfully deprived of the Democratic Party nomination twice and just walk away. He is too good of a Bolshevik to do that.

    89. VictrC says:

      Is the Democratic Socialist on the ballot in all states yet?

    90. jason says:

      When you lose DKos….

      “The first election of the 2020 presidential campaign descended into a farce on Monday, as widespread reports indicated that the smartphone app for reporting the results of Iowa’s caucuses had become non-functional and calls to the Democratic Party’s backup telephone hotline was swamped with delays.

      As a result, nearly four hours after caucuses began, just 2% of precincts had reported results. The debacle prompted Daily Kos to cancel its election-night liveblog, the first time in the site’s 18-year history it has ever done such a thing.”

    91. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Will briefly interrupt the Iowa election fiasco to provide an update on California’s global warning crisis.

      Paso Robles 23°F set in 1955

    92. CG says:

      The optics of the Pete crowd as contrasted to the Bernie crowd is pretty remarkable.

      Pete’s biggest problem is of course African-American voters in South Carolina. That could change very quickly if Biden fades. It seems pretty obvious though that Pete’s husband will be kept out of the picture for that particular reason.

    93. jason says:

      Mayor Butt puts a bunch of black people behind him….

    94. VictrC says:

      So Mayor Butt is saying that he won Iowa. Pretty Bold.

    95. CG says:

      The obvious racial placement aside, his crowd looks a whole lot more “Middle America” than the collection of people standing behind Bernie.

    96. VictrC says:

      So Lets say he wins. How does he withstand the barrage that is going to come at him from Bloomberg, or does Bloomberg step aside if Buttigieg becomes the front runner because he only wants a 50% tax bracket.

      If not, how does he withstand the $500M plus Bloomberg will spend

    97. CG says:

      It seems like Bloomberg has much more black support than Buttigieg at this point. Bloomberg’s path has to involve Biden being out after SC though.

      This is definitely a good night for Buttigieg though.

    98. CG says:

      Of the five candidates who spoke tonight, Pete is the only one who had both an actual speech to deliver (Klobuchar and Biden were visibly confused by what was happening and just tried to wing it) and who is trying to actually appeal to general election voters (Sanders and Warren just went hard left for their base)

    100. mRviTO says:

      A county just disappeared off the final count… it was one Bernie won the first count with 200 people and 44%. Warren had 19% and no one else was viable. But the final tally made no sense.

      No thrill up his leg this time..

      “I’m not happy with this field. I think they have to find a candidate for president that can beat Trump…

      “I’m still looking.” – MSNBC’s Chris Mathews

    102. jason says:

      “Bernie Sanders is not going to be President, okay”?

      – Chris Matthews.

    103. jason says:

      In fairness, he did say that about Trump too.

    104. jason says:

      Declaring victory was probably not a good strategy because he probably didn’t win.

    105. CG says:

      If the Dems go hard left and blow another one against Trump, Buttigieg is basically a lock for the 2024 nomination. I know people here (including myself) find him too liberal, but he is extremely talented politically.

    106. CG says:

      If Biden is nominated and loses to Trump, they are going full AOC.

    107. lisab says:

      jason,

      quick, what odds can you get me for mayor butt not winning in 2024?

    108. mRviTO says:

      So the DMR poll is canceled when a Buttigieg supporter complains, and then Buttigieg declares victory while in third place with only 34 precincts in?

    109. CG says:

      Ok, his husband joined him at the end. I was wrong about that, but that is something that is causing older church-going African Americans to reject him.

      The left loves identity politics and pointing the finger at others, but is unable to recognize when it persists among them.

      Trump was elected President because so many people were willing to look the other way on bigotry and if Biden is to be nominated, the same thing will be in play. Biden has to rely on the fact that people will decide to reject his major opponents because they are not male, not Christian, or not straight.

    110. Cash Cow TM says:

      Iowa D primary voting
      what a fuster cluck…

      but I hear the voters in Florida are breathing a sigh of relief (butterfly ballots of 2000)

    112. Bayernfan says:

      Pete is going to drop like a stone after his nonsense the last few days and tonight.

    113. mRviTO says:

      Trump should declare victory in both caucuses.

    114. VictrC says:

      Oh wow. Indications are that in the primary (1st vote) Biden came in fifth place, hence the reason why his lawyers shot off that letter.

      That would be disastrous for Biden.

    115. VictrC says:

      Bayern – What has he been doing the last few days.

      I still think he’s all fluff. Sorry, but the idea that a 37yo mayor with no experience is going to win the Presidency is absurd. I can not see him winning the election over Trump. I also don’t see him winning the 2024 nomination because he will have the same problems then that he has now, especially with minorities.

    116. Phil says:

      Hard to believe Biden would finish fifth…it’s possible, however. If he finishes 4th or 5th he’s dead in NH IMO.

      Turns out the Des Moines Register poll was completely accurate:

      Dave Wasserman
      @Redistrict
      We’ve known for ages
      @jaselzer’s IA poll is scary accurate but this year she’s taken it to a whole new level.

      @jedshug
      It turns out the Des Moines Register Poll nailed these results: 404 Page Not Found. Massive silent data corruption. Hell, everything corruption.

    120. Tina says:

      The chaos was done for multiple reasons:

      Cloud Cccps victory.

      Protect China Biden who finished fourth or fifth and likely with no delegates.

      Protect an image of massive voter turnout. (Which was not the case).

    121. DW says:

      I predicted yesterday that Biden would barely hold on to fourth place, nearly being edged out by Klobber, but it appears it was the other way around.

    122. PresidentPaul! says:

      We had an “inconsistency.” It seems that Ron Paul errr I mean John McCain (fake republican) won all the delegates again.

    123. mRviTO says:

      Ann Selzer is a goddess… who else could have nailed a result of “no results due to inconsistencies in the reporting.”

    124. Messy says:

      I will be the first to admit that the Iowa Democratic party screwed up royally. What a frggen’ mess!! Also, why didn’t the republicans give a detailed count of who got what among the 150 votes for ‘others.” are they scared that Romney might have some supporters somewhere?

    125. mRviTO says:

      Mayor Cheat is trending on twitter.

    126. PresidentPaul! says:

      To the fuc$%%^$% moon TSLA

    127. DW says:

      Biggest takeaway from Democratic Party caucus. They have sent a message to America, “if you want the federal government to be run with the same chaos we put on display tonight, then we are your party,”

      The Democrat Party in Iowa really messed up, but the Republican Party did not. I had the largest re-election vote in the history of that great state, by far, beating President Obama’s previous record by a lot. Also, 97% Plus of the vote! Thank you Iowa!

      I did not watch the coverage last night and just catching up on the headlines this morning. Seems bizarre to me, they could have just used a Google Docs spreadsheet and have all the precinct leaders report their results there.

      My guess is that the problem is not with the reporting of results, but its with the results themselves. Maybe incorrect counting or a crooked/incompetent precinct leader. Who knows.

      Anyway, hopefully this means the death of the caucus. I’m glad Georgia has a primary and not a caucus. I wouldn’t participate in an archaic caucus.

The state recently pledged a push to include at least one computer science course in every high school in the state by 2022.

      NEW: Joe Biden’s campaign tried to reassure donors on a conference call today that he will win Nevada and South Carolina after chaos ensued in Iowa. This comes as Biden is in need of campaign cash going into key states he believes he can win.
      https://cnbc.com/2020/02/04/bi

    227. VictrC says:

      How ironic would it be if Biden didn’t even make it to Super Tuesday.

      If the numbers being leaked showing him at 12% (with Klobuchar at 11%) are true, and Sanders does top 30%, Butt 25% and Warren 21%, combined with his lack of cash, it could be very conceivable that he is a non-entity as early as after South Carolina, where weak showings in IA, NH and NV will cut into his support.

      So we go from a Biden front runner to a Super Tuesday of Bloomberg, Sanders, Butt and Warren, with maybe a Klobuchar hanging on the fringes.

      Interesting

    228. jason says:

      I think Klobuchar had to come in third to create any momentum, 11% is not going to cut it, with all due respect to Skippy.

      America, something went wrong here tonight and it wasn’t just an app. If an app goes down, there are such things as telephones. Then a moderate candidate came out and made this weird victory speech, while MSM started talking about what a good night this was for Mike Bloomberg.

      Over at Dkos they are not impressed by Mayor Butt’s gambit.

      “The biggest a-hole of the night was small-liberal-college-town Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who gave a victory speech utterly divorced from the reality on the ground. His pretend “I won and shocked the nation” speech was everything we hate about politics—a Trumpian attempt to create reality by merely declaring it so”

    245. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The big winner from last night may be Bloomberg.

      Buttigieg badly needed the PR from a victory or strong showing last night to jump start his campaign. The chaos prevented it.

      If Biden has the low showing in Iowa that is rumored, and is out of money, his campaign is in trouble. His mental state appears to be deteriorating, and the Hunter Biden scandal does not help.

      Bloomberg may soon become the leading “moderate” candidate, and has the money to conduct a massive media campaign.

      The presidential race in November 2020 may come down to being between two obnoxious New York City billionaire buffoons.

    246. Florida Guy says:

      This debacle will hurt the Dems and rightfully make the Sanders bloc suspicious. It will also fire up Sanders people across the nation.

      Chaos is predicted.

      Further, the people at large have got to be disgusted with the Democrats at this point. They could not run an ice cream stand. They are impeaching an increasingly popular president during a booming economy. They are too far left. Trump is rope-a-doping them.

      FG

    247. DW says:

      Who can fault Buttigieg for declaring victory? Why not? The whole Democrat Party is a lie anyway, and its members are people who like believing the lies of their leaders. So if someone wants to claim he won, good for him! Those who saw it and believed it are just doing what they normally do–believing the lies of their leaders.

      And … there should always be a fallback plan in case of a catastrophic failure. There was obviously no fallback plan here, at least not a good one. Epic Fail.

      Before cancel culture, who could ask for a better line than

      Sanders got screwed in the end by a queer caucus.

    333. PresidentPaul! says:

      Elon was preparing the flamethrower sale back in 2018 a in advance of the biggest short burn of all time.

      -“Hey where is everybody? What thread are you guys on? This isn’t funny….dang VictrC!.

      I’m over here with the real Mr. Vito, but it looks like 2018, and Robbie and “CG” are happy that the Republicans are going to lose the House.

      Helloooooo? Helloooooo?

      Oh geez, now Wes is talking about 1875 again…..hit the refresh button, PRONTO! What thread are we on, MA?”.

    335. jason says:

      Supposedly some of the areas believed to be for Sanders are still out, like Black Hawk Co with a population of 132k.

    336. mRviTO says:

      Keep your short troll to your own flaming self, Bunu.

    337. NYCmike says:

      Heh! I wasn’t the only one lost!

      Some A-Hole was posting on the last thread, speaking to himself!

    338. jason says:

      CNN is fact checking what they think Trump will say.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    339. jason says:

      Some moron is reading posts on the wrong thread.

    340. NYCmike says:

      LOL!

      Very good, A-Hole!

    341. NYCmike says:

      Let that be a lesson, kids! Punctuation marks are important!

      “Very good, A-Hole!”
      “Very good A-Hole!”

      For cash cow

      538: This explains why Buttigieg is winning the state delegate count but losing the popular vote. He did the best in counties worth a disproportionate number of delegates, while Sanders ran up the score in counties whose number of delegates is capped.

      (((Harry Enten)))
      @ForecasterEnten
      Some quick math… In the six counties (taking into account % of precincts in) with the lowest attendee to state del ratio, Buttigieg is leading by an average of about 20 pts. In the six counties with highest attendee to state del ratio, it’s Sanders by about 20 pts.

    343. jason says:

      Thank God for that comma.

    344. Cash Cow TM says:

      Thanks for the info about Iowa and voting, Mr. Vito.

      You are a real pal and a good sock!

      The details of Shadow’s epic fail keep getting worse. They deployed the Android app through a free version of TestFairy, which caps the number of users at 200.

    347. Cash Cow TM says:

      OK…Time to tune into Trump’s State of the Onion address.

      (not sure how high the “Trump being an ass” meter might go)

    348. Cash Cow TM says:

      I do hope in the State of Onion address that Trump addresses all the strange UFO sightings that have been going on recently and sheds some light on them.

      And also I hope he says something about monkeys.

    349. mRviTO says:

      Flying monkeys?

    350. VictrC says:

      Ouch. Pelosi went ot shake his hand and he didn’t shake back.

    351. Cash Cow TM says:

      On one side of the chamber there appears to be 72 virgins all dressed in white dresses or whatever.

    352. Cash Cow TM says:

      There must be a problem with half of the people in the chamber apparently not being able to hear what Trump is saying. That half just keeps seated, no expression, no clapping or standing…

    353. Cash Cow TM says:

      I hope he says something about glowbull warming.

    354. dblaikie says:

      All I can say is: pass the popcorn!!

    355. dblaikie says:

      I am becoming a Sinema fan. Only dem to clap. Only dem woman not to wear white. She is impressive!

    356. Cash Cow TM says:

      Come on…enough about this other stu.ff….lets here about the UFOs and the monkeys.

    357. Cash Cow TM says:

      Will Trump get in a dig about the Dems Iowa carcass voting mess up?

    358. Cash Cow TM says:

      SPACE FORCE!….will UFOs be mentioned?

    359. Cash Cow TM says:

      Walt says he knew that 100 year old brigadier general (McGee) when that fellow was a small boy.

    360. PresidentPaul! says:

      Didnt sanders win the pop vote last time and they released that fact like a month later?

    361. Cash Cow TM says:

      So far, Trump has behaved himself.

      “Trump being an ass” meter has barely budged.
      Not served up any red meat yet.

    362. dblaikie says:

      Just watching Nancy’s facial expressions is entertaining.

    363. Cash Cow TM says:

      WTF was that white clothed bunch demonstration about?

    364. Cash Cow TM says:

      Were they chanting something about UFOs?

    365. VictrC says:

      My wife asked if Pelosi has some sort of neurological problem with all the twitching of her mouth and face.

      I said that her face hasn’t moved in years. Botox will do that to you and she can’t stand near any open flames

    367. phoenixrisen says:

      Mercy, Trump is kicking arse with optimism and taking it to the Dems simultaneously. And he gives Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Absolutely glorious

    368. Cash Cow TM says:

      TREES!

    369. PresidentPaul! says:

      Increasing taxes on gasoline to pay for an infrastructure bill seems outrageous to me if that’s the plan.

    370. Tgca says:

      YES! Mofo’s.

      BAN LATE TERM ABORTION

      GFY evil ABORTION loving Dems!

    371. PresidentPaul! says:

      Maybe he’ll talk about Pelosi’s district that is a dystopian nightmare.

    372. VictrC says:

      What’s the over/under on Seinema switching parties?

    373. NYCmike says:

      Enough of this Trump optimism.

      I will wait for “CG” to list the bad things that Trump has done over the last 3+ years which makes him want a socialist liberal Democrat to become President next January.

    374. NYCmike says:

      “What’s the over/under on Seinema switching parties?”

      -I don’t see that happening. She may be putting herself in good position to lead the Democratic Party after a couple of years. Being a woman, and bisexual, almost makes her able to withstand a lot of criticism from the wingnuts.

    375. VictrC says:

      How the F*%kj do Democrats not stand for the taking out of a disgusting murdering terrorist who killed hundreds of Americans.

      That was VILE who do they support? America or our enemies

    376. Phil says:

      She won’t switch, Vic but she has really been a pleasant surprise. Incredibly pleasant. From her reaction tonight, I have to believe there is a decent chance she does not vote to convict tomorrow.

    377. Cash Cow TM says:

      PELOSI JUST TORE HER COPY OF TRUMP’S SPEECH IN HALF!

      What a B**ch!

    378. Phil says:

      Did Nancy just rip up Trump’s speech while Trump was still at the podium?

    379. jason says:

      Yep…

      N/T
