Political Theater

Leavenworth O'Brien is upset that Der Trumlenfuehrer referred to Robert E. Lee a great man:

The racism in the GOP runs deep. https://t.co/Iq2dLcQW5D

- Soledad O'Brien
----------
"I am very happy to take part in this unveiling of the statue of General Robert E. Lee.

All over the United States we recognize him as a great leader of men, as a great general. But, also, all over the United States I believe that we recognize him as something much more important than that. We recognize Robert E. Lee as one of our greatest American Christians and one of our greatest American gentlemen."

Sad Hillary

…“Hillary Clinton is the kiss of death and she represents the part of the Democratic Party that led to historic losses and that elected Donald Trump president,” one leading Democratic strategist told the Washington Examiner.

“Democrats don’t want her to campaign for them because everywhere she goes she carries this stench of death and is the only political figure in America that is less popular than Donald Trump,”…

That last remark is pretty strange considering Trump's incredible popularity — must mean :less popular among Democrats!"

I don't know enough about this to know who's propaganda and who's reporting the facts, but it sure looks sketchy that twitter is taking a very pro-Turkey approach to censorship. …
