    Uh, how about coming up with some reasonable solutions? That might actually make the Repubs have to react? The Dems are just abjectly stupid right now by continuing this charade. The Independents see right through it.

    The Dems have zero solutions, so they just hide behind this phony outrage to waste time.

    Elizabeth Warren is also 1/1064 Native American. And so brilliant that she got roped, hog-tied and slung horseback into a DNA test by Trump's bait. #EyeRoll

    But what does that have to do with her being an embarrassment to the party and a total loon?

    Let's just make sure we categorize these people correctly. There are serious, accomplished people with bad (IMO) political opinions.

    And then there are AOC, Illan and people of that ilk who are not serious, accomplished people.

    We need more of the people from group 1 (with varying political opinions) in Congress and many fewer from group 2.

    If you want to go down this road, then you have to add the ability to reason and think critically. Otherwise, pure intellect probably is literally wasted.

    She, like many of her compatriots, comes off looking batshit crazy, foaming at the mouth for impeachment.

    One example. 90% of Americans want expanded background checks for gun purchases. The bill is in the Senate. The Reaper won't bring it to the floor bcuz it will cost him NRA bucks. You can still buy a gun if you're on the "no fly" list. Pathetic.

    Because the no fly list doesn’t constitute due process when restricting someone’s constitutional rights.

    One of you guys want to tweet Trump and let him know that China is not the one paying tariffs?
