Major business leader, Bob Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment TV (BET), tells CNBC that the 2020 presidential election is Donald Trump’s to lose. No one can dominate the news cycle like Trump, and the Democratic presidential candidates have moved to far from the center to appeal to the super-majority of Black voters the Democrats require in order to win the White House, Johnson says.
Why do the impeachment hearings fail to convince anyone? A new NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll shows that the vast majority of Americans can’t imagine anything in the hearings will change their minds about President Trump’s guilt or innocence.
David Wasserman of Cook Political Report says a significant number of Republican House Members would vote to impeach President Trump if their ballots were secret. In private conversations, Wasserman says, some GOP lawmakers confess Trump is “wildly unfit to be president.”
About 300 backers of President Trump rally in West Baltimore to clean up a neighborhood in Rep. Elijah Cummings’ “disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” of a district, as Trump called it recently. Does this random act of kindness provide a template for civic action by conservatives everywhere?
Tom Steyer, who has led a two year campaign to impeach President Trump, and devoted years as a climate crusader alarmed at global warming, just announced he’ll spend $100 million to get the Democratic nomination for president. Can Steyer’s billions buy the White House? Should the Democrats pick a wealthy populist outsider to face Trump? How long can Progressives endure a rich, white, male, heterosexual, professing Christian, candidate?
For all their talk of tolerance and equality, racism rips the Democrats apart in their first presidential debate. Kamala Harris forces herself into the top tier when she takes a shot at Barack Obama’s vice president, Joe Biden. Can Biden survive this battle for the soul of the Democratic party? Is Harris the perfect presidential nominee because she’s willing to do anything to win?
President Trump launches his 2020 White House run as he leaks about an upcoming series of I.C.E. deportation raids on Twitter. Did he do it to bolster his base because he still hasn’t built the wall? Did the president jeopardize the effectiveness of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement round up by alerting illegal aliens, perhaps risking the lives of federal agents?
Quick hot takes on weird and wonderful news of the week — Stephen Green brings you Right Angle Lightning Round XXI, with Scott Ott and Bill Whittle.
President Trump tells George Stephanopoulos at ABC News that he still wants to hear oppo research “dirt” on his political rivals…even if it comes from Russia. Did he learn nothing from the Mueller Probe? Or is he laying a trap for Hillary Clinton?
William Montanez maybe an unlikely hero for civil libertarians, but the Florida man — arrested on drug and weapons charges — did 44 days in jail for refusing to unlock his phone for police. Would you endure that to guard your liberties, or perhaps just racy pics of your partner? Should the law prevent police from cracking phones to solve crimes?
Special Counsel Robert Mueller, at his final press conference, implies Donald Trump is NOT not guilty of obstruction of justice, and leaves the door open for impeachment. Will Democrats take new hope from the implication that the only reason the Mueller report didn’t recommend charges against Trump is because a sitting president can’t be charged with a crime?
The New York Times has transcripts of Donald Trump’s IRS tax returns from 1985-94. They show huge business losses of $1.17 billion in a decade, and profits from shady deals in which Trump bought stock, spread false rumors of a take-over, then sold his stock quickly at a profit. Will revelations from this “bombshell” story have any effect on Trump supporters or his reelection chances? Do Democrats now have additional reason to press for release of his last six years of tax returns?
Legislation in 17 states would remove President Donald Trump from the 2020 presidential election ballot if he doesn’t release his tax returns.
