In case you still had any doubts: Barack Obama is working really hard to re-elect Donald Trump. He backstabbed the American people in 2016 but has decided to frontstab voters in 2020.

When Bernie was screwed by the cheating of Hillary in the 2016 primaries, his supporters were angry and he could have really done something with that anger if he had wanted to push the issue. Instead he chose to lay down like a dog and tell his supporters to vote for Hillary.


Sarah Silverman told his supporters at the DNC convention that they were "being ridiculous"

Many switched and voted for Trump.


He doesn't have the same momentum that he had before he became a cuck to Hillary. He's just a parody of the man from 2016.

The biggest thing Trump OR Bernie had going for them was... They were NOT Hillary Clinton.

Very true, but would the GOP have won if they'd used Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush instead of Trump? I doubt that they would have beaten the Clinton political machine.

But in 2020, I don't see anyone in the current list of Democrat candidates (all 18 of them) that will benefit much from not being Donald Trump.


I have seen many Democrat voters saying that they will vote for anyone that's named as the nominee, even if that person is terrible, because they want to remove Trump at any cost. I don't see this being representative of the average Joe who votes Democrat however, and the DNC's silent majority, who are more centrist than left, will want substance from the nominee. Nor will that wash with the independent swinging voter that is largely attributed to Trump's surprise victory in 2016.


Anyway I try to slice and dice this, it always comes up with the Democrats having zero chance of winning in 2020.

RE: The Candidacy and Presidency of Andrew Yang #yanggang
they are bringing up the same story to smear Andrew yang now.. a story that was basically settled:

A Woman Claimed Andrew Yang Discriminated Against Her At His Tutoring Company
“In my experience, Andrew is yet another businessman who doesn’t think that women deserve to be compensated the same as men for the same work,” the woman told BuzzFeed News.

A woman alleged in 2011 that Andrew Yang, then the CEO of a tutoring company, paid her substantially less money than two similar male employees and abruptly fired her after she pressed him over the disparity, according to documents obtained by BuzzFeed News.

The woman was paid a termination settlement by the education services company Kaplan, which had acquired Yang’s company, after she said in a letter to Kaplan’s human resources department that he had “acted in a discriminatory manner” and breached a contract by firing her.

“Andrew always spoke positively of my work and my value to the company. This changed only when I approached him about the disparity of my salary compared to male colleagues in similar roles,” the woman, whose name is being withheld at her request because of fear of online harassment, told BuzzFeed News in a statement.

She added, “I believe Andrew fired me as retaliation for asking to be paid a salary that was still significantly less than what he was paying my male counterparts.”

Yang, now a presidential candidate, has built a surprisingly popular brand in the Democratic primary race in large part on his background as an entrepreneur. He has lasted in the race longer than much more established and conventional candidates, and has outperformed many of the traditional candidates who remain.

BuzzFeed News provided the Yang campaign detailed questions about the woman’s allegations. In a statement, spokesperson S.Y. Lee said only: "Like many CEOs, Andrew Yang has had the unfortunate task of letting staff go who did not meet the organization’s standards. The information provided by the letter-writer does not reflect the reality of the situation.”

She is the second woman to allege that Yang discriminated against her based on gender while he was CEO of the tutoring company, which was called Manhattan GMAT. Another woman, Kimberly Watkins, said in September that Yang fired her from the company because she had gotten married, adding that he assumed she would not want to work as hard. Watkins claimed she was paid a severance stipend for two years as a settlement after the firing.

In an appearance on The View in September, Yang said there was “zero truth” to Watkins’ allegations. “I'm happy to say, I've had so many phenomenal women leaders that have elevated me and my organizations at every phase of my career, and if I was that kind of person I would never have had any success," he said.

The second woman’s claims, in some ways, echo those of Watkins. She said she was abruptly terminated by Yang after hearing no negative feedback about her performance. And she believed that the reason she was fired was tied to her gender.

In the 2011 letter to Kaplan’s human resources department obtained by BuzzFeed News, the woman said she was making $87,000 a year at Manhattan GMAT when Yang hired two men with salaries of $125,000, plus a $50,000 “relocation bonus.” She knew the men’s salaries because she had sent them their offer letters at Yang’s request, the woman told BuzzFeed News.

The woman, who had a graduate degree from a prestigious university, had been at the company for two years. She told BuzzFeed News she frequently performed work outside her own department relating to her specialization. She was almost immediately asked to assign work to one of the men who was making nearly twice her income, she alleged to Kaplan in the letter, and they continued to perform comparable jobs.

BuzzFeed News spoke with another former employee of Manhattan GMAT who corroborated details of the woman’s story.

Yang’s campaign connected BuzzFeed News with a current employee of Manhattan GMAT, now called Manhattan Prep, who worked at the company in 2010 and 2011 and disputed the idea that the two men had worked at the same level as the woman who made the allegations against Yang. The current employee also did not want to be named because of privacy concerns.

The woman and the two men “weren’t in the same role,” the current employee said; the men had more direct reports and did jobs that “pushed the business forward.” The fact that the woman had assigned work to the men was common in a small company, the current employee said, and not indicative that they were working at similar levels.

“I never saw or experienced this type of discrimination,” the current employee, who is also a woman, said.

The woman who wrote the complaint to Kaplan said she twice raised the issue of the pay disparity directly to Yang. The first time, he offered her a promotion to the same level as the men, but did not give her a raise, she said in the letter. The second time, she wrote, he gave her a raise to $102,000, but simultaneously cut her salary by 30% because she had recently moved from New York to Washington, DC, to live with her boyfriend, and was now working remotely. That resulted in an effective pay cut, the woman said in the letter.

The woman said that she and Yang eventually agreed that she would work at the company until she went to graduate school that fall, and Yang agreed he would continue to pay her at the 70% rate for two months after she began school. But weeks after she pressed Yang on the pay disparity, he called her and fired her, she alleged to Kaplan.

Yang had never raised any substantial issues with her performance, the woman said to Kaplan. Instead, he told her he needed to make “budget cuts.” His company had just been acquired by Kaplan, and he was planning on leaving.

The woman told BuzzFeed News that she believed there was only one reason for Yang to fire her: questions about why she was being paid tens of thousands of dollars less than the male employees.

She told Kaplan that Yang had breached their agreement by firing her — denying her several months of income and health insurance. And she said she believed Yang had “irrevocably tarnished [her] professional reputation” when he fired her abruptly, without giving her a chance to say goodbye to colleagues or finish projects.

“In my experience, Andrew is yet another businessman who doesn’t think that women deserve to be compensated the same as men for the same work,” the woman told BuzzFeed News. “Watching him disingenuously promote himself as a feminist candidate has been extremely disheartening.”

They are slinging mud at Yang now. That's a sign that they are feeling his threat.

horrible horrible accusations that have already been cleared

Huh? What?

Conservatives have a huge problem with feminism (esp. third wave, i.e. current generation of feminists). And would rather that women take on a larger role as care takers of the household/raising families, than see them getting 'equal pay' and promotions!

Andrew Yang notches personal fundraising record by raising $750,000 in 24 hours

Presidential hopeful Andrew Yang is building momentum when it comes to attracting more and more donations.

The Democratic presidential candidate announced his campaign raised nearly $750,000 on November 30 — a record single-day haul for his campaign — to bring his weekly fundraising total to $2 million. A campaign spokesperson confirmed more than 18,000 contributions were made in the 24-hour period at an average of just $41.

“If the political establishment was shaken when they saw what we accomplished in Q3, they better brace themselves in the coming months because we’re going to continue to shatter expectations and win this race,” Yang’s campaign chief Nick Ryan said in a statement.

The latest cash infusion builds on an impressive showing for Yang in the third quarter. His campaign boasted the largest fundraising jump by percentage among any of the top-tier candidates by posting a 257% jump in donations to hit $10 million in donations over that period.

The fundraising boost comes at a welcome time for Yang, who has yet to qualify for the sixth Democratic debate, which requires candidates to meet donor thresholds and poll at or above 4% in at least four DNC-recognized polls by the deadline of December 12. Despite meeting the donor requirements, Yang is still one poll shy of the debate stage.

A Yang campaign statement highlighted that the influx of support from donors would allow the businessman to continue to expand his campaign’s “footprint and ability to compete in early voting states with new offices and more staff” at a time when the Democratic field still remains packed with six candidates already qualified for the sixth debate, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sens. Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Last week, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he would be joining the race as well with a $35 million advertising push.
