    Looks pretty terrible on both of them.

    I hate politicians.

    At this point, shouldn't we be more concerned about how the current regime will handle potential Russian interference in 2020? Because it sure seems like they're not taking it seriously and doing absolutely nothing:

    "Former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was urged by acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney not to bring up the subject of possible Russian interference in the 2020 election to President Donald Trump, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

    Citing interviews with three unnamed senior administration officials and one former senior official, the Times said Nielsen, who left the White House earlier this month, was told by Mulvaney in a meeting this year that Trump "still equated any public discussion of malign Russian election activity with questions about the legitimacy of his victory."

    Mulvaney, one official told the paper, said in the meeting the subject of Russian interference in the upcoming election "wasn't a great subject and should be kept below (Trump's) level."

    The report -- coming a day after White House senior adviser Jared Kushner downplayed Russian meddling efforts -- raises fresh questions about the readiness of US defenses against foreign interference in the next presidential election."

    The problem is with these jokers, they do the exact opposite of what’s obvious.

    Not sure if Teenwolf and/or GITH will like this analysis or hate it, but I'm growing more comfortable with Sen. Sanders's presidential prospects.


    The Democratic establishment should chill out about Bernie Sanders

    He has a long track record as a fairly banal, reasonably effective, and reasonably popular legislator.
