Billionaire Tom Steyer to join crowded 2020 presidential race

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer is planning to launch his campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, a report said Sunday.

The 62-year-old Steyer — who toyed with the idea of running in the past — held a private conference call last week to tell people close to him that he was planning to run, according to Politico.

I want to see Clinton vs Trump again.


Me too!! !! ! I just want to see how debates would go. I really want to see if any of the following would come up:

Trump: See, I was right, I won the election 4 years ago, like I told you I would
Hillary: But look at all those horrible things you were doing as a president

Quite frankly, I am confused why it sounds like Hillary chose not to run. I really hope she reconsiders.

I don't want her to run; the fact that she lost to Trump tells me that she's not a viable candidate.

This is very cynical: but should the Democratic candidate be Hispanic----or his/her running mate be Hispanic----there's a better chance that the Democrats will carry Florida. Carrying Florida, in my view, will give the Democrats a much better chance in 2020.

And if the Democrats carry the "usually blue" states that the Republicans carried in 2016, then it's a done deal for the Democrats.

One in, one out.

CNN, which is hosting the next round of democratic debates in Detroit on July 30 and 31, has informed the various campaigns that, “There will be no show of hands or one-word, down-the-line questions.”

Huh, why would CNN want to remove some of the most interesting and revealing elements from their upcoming events?

That's because those questions instantly generated a flood of embarrassing memes all over the net. :D

Replace the word "communists" with "neoliberals" and you've got yourself a meme. Are their people on the right who actually believe this s**t? "Communists?" f****n' hell, they're not even liberals! Ha!

What we see in this picture is the combined intellect of a house plant. What the left currently considers presidential material. Why not add Pelosi, she would at least be representative of the moderate democrats.

Far as I know Communist countries past and present are/were not saying they want to eliminate borders and citizenship to give a huge lifetime free stuff package to all immigrants.

There are still many Americans who actually believe that the Nazis were communists. Americans are idiots and their education sucks. No wonder the government can easily manipulate them.

My grandmother thought they were, and she used to be a school teacher.

I used to think they were, until I got edumacated.

Also I believe in the McCarthy era anyone who opposed conservatism in this country was labeled a "communist". That included activists who were fighting for equal rights for all.

Yep....McCarthyism was all about supposed Communist "infiltration" into all facets of everyday life.

Anybody who was of a liberal bent were seen as being Communists by many. This continues to this day. Anybody who is into universal health care is called a "socialist" nowadays. The farthest most of these people go is "Social Democracy of the European type.

Socialism=Communism in the minds of many people.

"Democrats are all Communists because we think Communists are all evil!"

I believe that is McCarthyism at its finest, correct me if I am wrong?

Just like the accusations of MAGAs being Nazis. Although personally I think their toes have stepped pretty close to that line with the internment camps Trump has been sticking Immigrants in.
