David Waldman brings us all of the fun & infuriating Clownstick news, plus other things!
Donald Trump is hurt that some focus on his history of abusing relationships and interactions with women and those with less power than him, when it can be shown that he might have purposely been nice to some people also.
Greg Dworkin brings non-Clownstick analysis. But, first: Donald Trump’s success with Evangelicals is not surprising. Evangelicals have a consistent history. If people turn to Trump for hypocrisy, who does he turn to? Did the media keep the juiciest revelations for the time they’d bring the biggest ratings? Hillary Clinton is ahead, and widening her lead, but it gets more clicks to say the race is close.
Today are the Kentucky and Oregon primaries, good luck to the candidates!
Life of the party Ralph Nader returns with opinions on Bernie, Hillary.
The rift between Labor and Environmentalists threatens the Democratic turnout plan. Even people who worry the most about the environment take little action if they personally see little action being taken. Like West Virginia, coal will be a factor in today’s primary.
