Loved this section of Obama’s speech in Johannesburg today:
“It shows a poverty of ambition to just want to take more and more and more, instead of saying, ‘Wow, I’ve got so much. Who can I help? How can I give more and more and more?’ pic.twitter.com/3TUXkZ38Ce

Per the @dccc, 70 Dem challengers in House races out-raised their GOP opponents last quarter. The flip side of the DNC lagging the RNC’s cash; liberal donors are just giving directly to candidates.
Among out-raised Republicans: Peter King, Mo Brooks, Dana Rohrabacher, Dave Brat.

Snarky, Cynical stuff below the fold…
think about what this says about GOP
zero chance same could happen w/Democratic Party
impossible that Ds could nominate someone like Trump, that their legislators would ignore this behavior, that their voters would countenance it in any case. they care about governing too much https://t.co/68M8vwQ4TO

Remember the Charlottesville saga: Trump expressed his true views, there was an outcry, he dutifully read a staff-written walk-back statement, then soon after he abandoned the walk-back and even more forcefully expressed his true views.

Sure Putin wanted Trump to win, but so did the Klan, your racist uncle, that neighbor who shoots guns into the sky on 4th of July, men who want to fuck their daughters, the All Lives Matter hashtag, and the guy who killed John Wick’s puppy, so why are you guys focusing on Putin?
