Desparate Klobuchar Conjures John McCain and Dictators for Attention

It must be getting pretty hard to stand out in the massive 2020 democratic field.

Now that the democrats have populated their 2020 field with two dozen candidates for president, the silly and salacious behavior is set to begin.

Standing out in such an enormous gaggle of progressive is going to prove difficult for the democrats, especially now that Joe Biden’s eventual announcement has seemingly sucked all of the air out of the room.  The former Vice President is currently sitting well above the rest of his field, besting his nearest competitor Bernie Sanders by double digits in recent polls.

So now the left will turn ever more vitriolic and bombastic in order to seek attention.

Amy Klobuchar has already gone this route, allegedly quoting the late John McCain at a recent campaign stop.

In her remarks before supporters in Iowa, Klobuchar recounted how she sat beside McCain and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during President Trump’s inaugural address

“I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” said the White House hopeful, the Huffington Post reported on Saturday. “He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.”

McCain’s daughter Meghan, who is currently working as a television host for The View, fired back at Klobuchar via Twitter.

McCain, although a republican, had butted heads with President Trump on several occasions, quite publicly.  This fact seems to have given the democrats a reason to praise and revere the late Senator and veteran, much to the dismay of those who knew him best.

New Report Reveals Ohio Democratic Party Received $300K In Federal Coronavirus Relief Loan

The whole point of the Paycheck Protection Program that was put together earlier this year at the beginning of the lockdowns put in place due to the coronavirus was supposed to provide relief for small businesses who would be left devastated by the sudden and massive loss of income that would come about as a result of these safety measures. However, it seems the Ohio Democratic Party received a sizable chunk of cash to keep them going too. Now that doesn’t seem right, does it? via The Washington Examiner: Campaign finance reports show that the loan, amounting to $333,867, was approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration on April 30, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. In May, a tweet critical of the Trump administration’s program was posted on the group’s official Twitter account. “With so many small businesses shut out from receiving PPP loans ⁠— while nearly 300 publicly traded companies received more than $1 billion from the program⁠ — local governments across Ohio are stepping up to help small businesses, which are often the center of their communities,” the tweet read. https://twitter.com/OHDems/status/1262735869628297217 A spokeswoman for the party came out and actually attempted to defend their receiving the federal funds by saying 20 jobs were saved. “The purpose of the Paycheck Protection Program is to help organizations cover payroll and benefits, and that’s precisely what it has been used for ⁠— to ensure our entire team continued to work and earn a paycheck and retain their health coverage during an unprecedented public health crisis,” Kirstin Alvanitakis said. The Ohio Republican Party slammed the Democrats for taking the money. Evan Machan, the Ohio GOP spokesman, said, “We did not need to apply for these funds. Under the leadership of Chairman Timken, our financial situation is strong, and we were never at…

Trump’s Campaign Developing New Strategy To Draw Big Crowds To Rallies; ‘Can’t Have Repeat Of Tulsa’

Published

on

President Trump’s rally that was held in Tulsa, Oklahoma was super hyped up by media outlets across the Internet with expectations of crowd attendance being astronomically high. As it turns out, not many folks actually showed up to the event, something that deflated Trump’s campaign a bit and has now prompted them to change direction. The new strategy the campaign is looking to employ includes increased safety measures to make folks feel comfortable enough to attend the event, as many believe fear of the coronavirus prevented many individuals from attending the Tulsa rally. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “We can’t have a repeat of Tulsa,” a campaign official told NBC News, referring to Trump’s upcoming rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, this Saturday. The president’s rallies resume as many states grapple with upticks in coronavirus cases, prompting state and local leadership to halt reopenings and introduce new public health orders to prevent the spread of the virus. Unlike the indoor venue the campaign chose for its Tulsa rally, the president will make his appearance in an open-air airport tarmac hangar this weekend. Health experts have said outdoor events are less risky than large gatherings indoors, but also stress that the virus can still be spread. An official from the White House noted that Trump understands that people may not come out the way they did in 2016 due to fears over catching COVID-19. When the rally was held in Tulsa, masks were offered to those who showed up to the event, but many of them didn’t bother to wear them. Several staffers and a couple of prominent attendees ended up testing positive for the coronavirus. Masks are apparently going to be strongly encouraged at the New Hampshire rally, though the campaign said they will not be mandated.
