The Dems were really hurting for a victory. This morning this is all they had. But it was big news on The Today Show. Taylor had kept pretty quite about politics her whole career, so to your average 30 year old this was big news.
Seems like this is 90% about her being mad at Marsha Blackburn. One should not go full potato because one is angry with a single person.

Trump meets with LEO gets applause for Kavanaugh confirmation. A lot different from previous POTUS, who did everything possible to prevent them from doing their job.

Jobless welfare claims near five-decade low

6.3%: African-American Unemployment Rate Second-Lowest Ever
The lowest unemployment rate ever for African-Americans was 5.2% - in May, also under the Trump Administration

Record low unemployment rate for Hispanics was August, at 4.5%. In Sep, it is still only 4.7%.

Economy added 134,000 jobs in September; unemployment falls to nearly 50-year low
Under Obama unemployment went down because people quit looking for jobs. Under Trump unemployment went down because there were jobs for people to find.
August job creation rebounds — “fueled by tax cuts,” notes AP, Bloomberg
And the people taking those jobs get to keep more of their take-home pay. The horror of the Trump Administration knows no bounds.


Oh, and "Kavanaugh."
I can't imagine any other Republican president or Republican wannabe-president that wouldn't have folded under the Democratic Party's sewer-fest over the last month, but Trump a) was remarkably restrained, and b) was remarkably strong.

Nikki Haley Resigns

https://apnews.com/efdd9c2096824dd69ff5 ... nd-of-year AP naturally frames it as a negative for the Trump Administration.

Since Justice Kavanaugh has been sworn in CNN talks about President Trump's private parts again.

Kanye West to lunch with President Trump

I think he is married to a Kardashian.

Taylor Swift ends her silence and comes out for the Democrats.
Wonder if she remembers the Dixie Chicks? Ask them how alienating your fan base enhances your career.

Otherwise, who cares what any "entertainer" thinks? Entertain me, otherwise shut up.

This is why Taylor Swift matters. 102,000 youngsters have registered to vote since she started her campaign.

I was referring to the folks at CNBC. :biggrinjester:

Just because an organization (vote.org) dominated by women says all those votes were triggered by NotSoSwitft's tweet doesn't make it true. Dollar to donut says everyone involved in vote.org is a progressive. https://www.vote.org/team/

Dems just need them to register. They have people already lined up to vote in their names.
In my home, one is allowed to spit on the floor in any situation where they are forced to say the word, Obama.

Turkey will release imprisoned US pastor. Turkey must be trying to make up with Trump or trying to help its case against Saudi Arabia.

Kanye West visits Trump in the White House says a lot of bad words on camera in the oval office,says MANGA hat like a Superman cape, beats on the Resolute Desk and naturally CNN accuses Trump of taking advantage of someone who is clearly not OK.
