In the wake of Harvey Weinstein, it became difficult to imagine how Gavin Newsom could possibly navigate a Democrat primary, given the party’s policy of “believe all women, even wacky, attention-seeking sluts”.

But after watching Al Franken resign in disgrace– while the Republican erectorate gave Trump a pass for Access Hollywood, and Roy Moore a pass for pedophilia– the Democrat base is slowly moving towards adopting the GOP policy on sexual assault, which has proven tremendously effective:

    If woman accuses a Democrat If woman accuses a Republican
    • “Victim”
    • “See, Democrats are the ones that hate women!”
    • “I don’t know what happened, but she deserves to be heard!”
    • “Slut”
    • “Liar”
    • “Hmmm, the timing seems politically motivated!”
    • “What happened to innocent until proven guilty, amirite!?”.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the pro-Bill & Hillary establishment wing of the party is the faction most eager to adopt this strategery:




 
The following comment is actually insightful AF (you may recall that in 2016, MFP strongly urged Trump to attack women– knowing he would win white women regardless, due to racism (which proved to be true)):

 

 
Indeed, it is primarily affluent and/or college-educated white women that constantly bitch about sexual harassment.

The following types of women generally view “victims” of sexism just as skeptically as do misogynists (such as myself), if not more so:

  • Elderly women across the board
  • Trashy white chicks
  • Hispanic chicks
  • Black chicks

All of which redounds to Gavin Newsom’s benefit (and, to a lesser extent, Joe Biden and others).

Kudos.

    Gavin Newsom

  • Communism 7
  • Fundraising 8
  • Look 9
  • Speech 7
  • Interview 7
  • Likability 4
  • Scandals 8
  • Anyone with a modicum of emotional intelligence can sense that he’s a Trump-level sociopath…

    If half-naked young women held in captivity for a decade escaped from a hidden dungeon in one of Gavin’s Newsom’s mansions– would anyone be surprised??

    Other than the seemingly ever-present threat of scandal, Gavin checks all the boxes:

    Elizabeth Warren

  • Communism 10
  • Fundraising 9
  • Look 2
  • Speech 5
  • Interview 6
  • Likability 3
  • Scandals 4
  • The good news: Elizabeth Warren can win the Democrat primary.

    The bad news: Elizabeth Warren can win the Democrat primary, and then proceed to lose the general erection in a landslide (relative landslide, by modern standards, like 52-45).

    Case in point: Here’s Bill Maher throw Warren a series of hanging curveballs– watch her squander it…

    Instead of using the opportunity to convey humility and warmth, Warren proceeds to remind everyone of that awkward feeling of being left alone with their scary mother-in-law.

    In short: Great brand, terrible candidate.

    Colonel Sanders

  • Communism 9
  • Fundraising 9
  • Look 2
  • Speech 7
  • Interview 8
  • Likability 9
  • Scandals 3
  • I know, I know.

    The wife and the loan from the bank, aka the Jews aka the Council on Foreign Relations aka Seth Rich.

    MFP has a well-earned reputation for thinly-veiled anti-Semitism, but even I can’t pretend to give a shit about this:

    Jane Sanders, who led Burlington College from 2004 to 2011, spent millions on a new campus — 33 acres along the bank of Lake Champlain — to attract more students and donations from alumni. It didn’t work: The college failed to recruit enough students or donations to repay its debts and even came close to losing its accreditation.

    On the other hand, he’s going to be like 1,000-years-old by 2020. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Donna Brazile robbed him of his 1 chance to be POTUS.

    It’s over dude.

    Kamala Harris

  • Communism 7
  • Fundraising 7
  • Look 6
  • Speech 7
  • Interview 8
  • Likability 9
  • Scandals 5
  • Political scouts raved about California’s star Attorney General, Kamala Harris. She came to the Senate with the hype of a #1 draft pick.

    But in her 1st year in office, Kamala looks more like Ryan Leaf than Peyton Manning.

    Much like Elizabeth Warren, great brand, terrible candidate.

    Kirsten Gillibrand

  • Communism 6
  • Fundraising 7
  • Look ?
  • Speech 5
  • Interview 9
  • Likability 9
  • Scandals 2
  • Here’s the thing.

    If Kirsten lost 30 pounds, she’d be MFP’s favorite to win the presidency in 2020– she’s charming, likable, and an excellent communicator…

    Unfortunately, she is cursed with recurring obesity that makes her look like an elementary school cafeteria lady ~66% of the time.

    Fat Kirsten: 5% chance to win the primary.
    Skinny Kirsten: 50% chance to win the primary.

    Joe Biden

  • Communism 6
  • Fundraising 8
  • Look 8
  • Speech 8
  • Interview 8
  • Likability 8
  • Scandals 5
  • Look.

    If Joe Biden had run in 2016, he would have won MI, PA, and WI (which Hillary, despite her unlikeability and sheer incompetence, barely lost)– and Joe Biden would be President today.

    But he didn’t, and he’s not.

    Biden is going to be figuratively literally 1,000,000-years-old in 2020.

    His time has passed.

    Cory Booker

  • Communism 5
  • Fundraising 7
  • Look 7
  • Speech 7
  • Interview 8
  • Likability 7
  • Scandals 5
  • 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

    Cory tried to distance himself from his anti-union, pro-charter school, big donor sellout reputation by testifying against his colleague, Jeff Sessions– and ramping up his anti-Trump rhetoric.

    But then Big Pharma called…

    To be fair, not even Trump can stand up to pharma lobbyists.

    Eric Garcetti

  • Communism 7
  • Fundraising 6
  • Look 8
  • Speech 7
  • Interview 8
  • Likability 8
  • Scandals 5
  • Garcetti suffers from Marcos Mariota Syndrome.

    Heading into the 2015 NFL Draft, the consensus was that the Oregon Ducks QB had #1 pick arm talent and athleticism, but a Beta Male personality– lacking assertiveness, ambition, and authoritativeness.

    Likewise, everyone really likes Garcetti– but they view him as a bitch cuck.

    It doesn’t help that he bears a startling resemblance to Phil Dunphy…

    Also, his wife Amy Wakeland refuses to take his last name, which must be emasculating…

    Pathetic.

    Andrew Cuomo

  • Communism 6
  • Fundraising 8
  • Look 7
  • Speech 6
  • Interview 8
  • Likability 1
  • Scandals 8
  • Cuomo is a big name from a big state that can raise a lot of money.

    But let’s think this through:

    A scandal-ridden, anti-gun New York governor and a primary calendar that starts in Iowa, then goes to New Hampshire, then swings through the South, and then swings through the Midwest??

    We don’t even get to Cuomo-friendly states– to the extent there even are Cuomo-friendly states– until mid-March and April!

    No fucking chance. Zero.

    Tim Ryan

  • Communism 5
  • Fundraising 4
  • Look 6
  • Speech 5
  • Interview 7
  • Likability 7
  • Scandals 3
  • This goofy bastard.

    To his credit, when she does put on makeup– which is rare– Tim’s wife is more desirable than Melania…

    Adam Schiff

  • Communism 7
  • Fundraising 5
  • Look 1
  • Speech 3
  • Interview 7
  • Likability 5
  • Scandals 3
  • As the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee investigating Russia, Adam can get on cable news whenever he wants.

    That’s the good news.

    The bad news is that he looks like a weasel.

    RIght or wrong, much like Carly ’16— the more people see Schiff’s face, the less they like him…

    Castro Bros. Really??

    So, that face on Iowa mailers??

    Buena suerte, mi amigo!

    Xavier Becerra He looks like a Hispanic Mike Pence…

    Who spells “Javier” with an “X”, anyway??

    GTFO.

    Amy Klasdfochar No.
    Deval Patrick No.

With the failure to repeal Obamacare (which poor, uneducated Trump voters disproportionately rely on), Trump’s odds of reerection now stand at 70.0%.
