Agreed. I think the "victims" of Trump's gradeschool level taunting should rip him a new a-hole. I think Dem politicians should ROUTINELY point out how stupid Trump is, how amazingly low-IQ his comments are. They should do it so often it becomes obvious, a known fact by all and sundry. The Dems, as usual, are missing an opportunity to score points.
So many people have pontificated about why Hillary Clinton couldn't win against the candidate that she and the DNC wanted to run against TRump or Ted Cruz as their 2nd choice. Trump had no intentions of carrying out a working class agenda, but at least he understood the rhetoric and how to talk to his base of supporters. The Clintons and other top Democrats and their fellow socialite celebrities and TV show hosts couldn't even be bothered to go through the motions!
Many of the people who voted for Trump in 2016 understood that he was a lying, crooked asshole, but at least he was speaking some of their language...not to mention applying the standard rightwing quasi-fascist approach of exploiting divisions within the working class base by targeting Blacks and Mexicans. The Hillarydems put nothing on the table for any of them...even repeating dissapointment in chief - Obama's "America is doing pretty great" line! All those who didn't feel their lives were going "pretty great" didn't see anything for them in keeping them in charge.
So, now there are a whole lot of people demanding something better from Democrats than what they were offered before. It seems pretty clear that Buttigieg, like Biden, like Kamala Harris represents the limits of what the rich and powerful controllers of the Democratic side of the aisle want from a candidate for the White House. They won't accept Bernie Sanders, and what they are most afraid of are antiwar candidates who threaten the military-industrial complex, so the talking heads on TV at night don't even mention Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard or even Mike Gravel...who at a very advanced age, found himself drafted into action by a group of young antiwar advocates who wanted him to at least get into the presidential debates and mention all the wars and the war spending which makes any expansion of domestic spending an impossibility. Remember, even Trump was talking against the wars and the spending/ but has been turned around by the Pompeo's and Bolton's and likeminded Neocons.
