Bernie Sanders Gets Treatment From CNN

Some people on both sides of the aisle think Bernie Sanders got set up by The Most Trusted Name in News at the CNN debate last week.

Here’s correspondent Abby Phillip asking the “when did you stop beating your wife” question:

“Sen. Sanders, CNN reported yesterday, and Sen. Warren confirmed in a statement, that in 2018 you told her that you did not believe that a woman could win the election. Why did you say that?”

And Here’s Bernie’s response:

“I don’t want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some of the media want,” Sanders added. “Anybody knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States.

And here’s Abby Phillip’s next question to Senator Warren:

“Sen. Warren, what did you think when Sen. Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?”

Stock Market Impeachment Indicator

The stock market hit record highs. Trump's bragging. And Democrats are impeaching. Just like Republicans when the market jumped on Clinton's watch.

House Speaker Pelosi dispatched a procession to the Senate to deliver a 1,426 word leather-bound document containing articles of impeachment. The Speaker and her acolytes hope to frogmarch President Trump out of the White House.

But, as The Washington Post reports:

For all the pageantry, both Johnson and Clinton’s impeachments ended in acquittal. Trump’s probably will too…

Trump Made his Move

“Mr. Trump has often seemed a president playing checkers while America’s adversaries play chess. He is not given to nuanced strategic concepts or long-range plans.” That’s how WSJ’s Holman Jenkins sees it.

But this time maybe he was a little nuanced, not responding while the Iranians made their moves. Or maybe he was napping, since he only sleeps four hour a night. Anyway, Iran’s proxies moved on oil tankers, bombed oil fields and shot down a U.S. drone. And Trump did nothing. Until they fired rockets at an American base, killing a contractor, and set fire to the American Embassy. Then Trump made his move, executing the evil genius General Soleimani Rocket Man style with a missile.

Long Range Plans

And now it’s not just all Death to America anymore. “His demise will not stop his mission,” said Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei, “But the criminals who have the blood of General Soleimani and other martyrs of the attack on their hands must await a tough revenge.”
