Trump 2019 Thread - Walls! Government shutdowns! Other stuff!

Nothing about the relocating to military bases aspect (inevitably), but here’s a local news report that seems to back up at least some aspects of the twitter thread above

Here’s the bit about military bases

“shelter”

feel sick to my stomach after reading this. Wouldn’t be at all surprised if a similar situation is happening in the UK too

The first round of Democratic Party presidential candidate debates has been announced:

Night 1 — Wednesday, June 26th

Elizabeth Warren
Beto O’Rourke
Cory Booker
Amy Klobuchar
John Delaney
Tulsi Gabbard
Julian Castro
Tim Ryan
Bill de Blasio
Jay Inslee

Night 2 — Thursday, June 27th

Joe Biden
Bernie Sanders
Kamala Harris
Pete Buttigieg
Kirsten Gillibrand
Michael Bennet
Marianne Williamson
Eric Swalwell
Andrew Yang
John Hickenlooper

Both nights will take place in Miami, for two hours in the evening (i.e. during the night in the UK).

Good to see they’ve got all the main candidates (Booty judge, Yang, Marianne) on the second night.

Apparently, the allocation to the first or second night was entirely random. Warm balls anyone?

Gutted Todd Bonzalez didn’t make the final cut

Gillibrand was begging people for individual dollar contributions a few weeks ago so that she could be included in the debates

She’s the one some Democrats are permanently mad at because she had the temerity to speak out about Al Franken sexually harrassing women isn’t she?

I think so. She was touted a lot ahead of announcing, but she’s been totally lost in the field.

They are going to lose in 2020.

Give it a month, they’ll be doing cringey Stranger Things references again after season 3 comes out

ratchet effect theory is correct again

if a democrat wins in 2020 they’ll decide they have to keep the concentration camps and expand the powers of ICE agents as red meat for republican voters.

looks like trump is going to begin a purge next week

there are also 4000 migrants “unaccounted for” and ICE officials have said “it’s unlikely they’ll be located”. i wonder where they could be.
