Last night’s Democratic debate was even worse than the night before and the big takeaway if you missed it is that you didn’t miss anything. At this point, Elizabeth Warren has been officially declared the winner and she wasn’t even on stage last night. The CNN moderators, Dana Bash, Jake Tapper, and Don Lemon, seem to have drawn the most ire. While the constantly interrupted candidates on the first night, the second was dedicated to attempts to get the Democrats...

The second round of debates for the herd of Democratic presidential candidates got underway last night. Unlike the current office holder, the ten wannabe presidents who gathered in Detroit demonstrated their seriousness about policy. In fact, that was the theme of the evening – parsing policy differences about health care, student debt forgiveness and foreign policy. The back and forth among the candidates was a window into the future of the Democratic party. The party has been drifting leftward recently–although not...

Democratic presidential candidates are starting to add their preferred pronouns to their official campaign bios, including their Twitter accounts. So far, former HUD secretary Julian Castro, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren have added the trans-friendly marker. “Stating your pronouns publicly as a cisgender ally sends a strong signal of support to the LGBTQ community but particularly transgender and non-binary people that they are seen, accepted and supported,” HRC spokesperson Lucas Acosta told NBC...

Peter Thiel, the gay billionaire who supports Donald Trump, continued his habit of saying ridiculous things, but, for once, he may be correct on at least one point. A stopped clock is right twice a day, after all. Speaking at the National Conservatism Conference, Thiel, who also spoke at the Republican National Convention, called on the FBI and CIA to investigate Google for treason. Thiel alleged that the tech company aided the Chinese military. He called on the intelligence agencies to...

Gay billionaire and Trump devotee Peter Thiel met up with FOX News’s resident homophobe Tucker Carlson last night to discuss one of the 58,740 things he believes himself to be an expert on: politics. During the sit down, 51-year-old Thiel, who offered a full-throated endorsement of Donald Trump in 2016, labeled Elizabeth Warren is the most “dangerous” of the 2020 Democratic candidates. “I’m most scared by Elizabeth Warren,” said the venture capitalist. “I think she’s the one who’s actually talking about the...

Rosie O’Donnell is calling on former Vice President Joe Biden to drop his bid for the White House. “I think Joe Biden should say, ’I’m going to sit this one out; I’m going to be an elder statesman and I’m going to advise’,” O’Donnell told Chris Cuomo during an appearance on CNN. “And then whoever is the nominee, I think, should think about how to best use somebody with the experience that Joe Biden has, and all these years of...

Our friends over at GLAAD have issued five questions about LGBTQ rights that moderators should ask at tonight’s democratic debate – and they’re spot on. A two night spectacle, the debates will air from 9-11pm Eastern time simultaneously on NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo. Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow, and José Diaz-Balart will moderate. With so many candidates, the debate has been broken into two nights featuring ten candidates each evening. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Former Texas Congressman Beto...

The first Democratic candidate debate featured 10 candidates, most of whom you probably never heard of and some of which you will likely not hear about again, at least in this context. With so many candidates on the stage, it was hard for any single candidates to stand out. Still, a couple of candidates did manage to distinguish themselves: Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro in particular. Thanks to an exchange with Rep. Tim Ryan, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also did better...

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has a plan to pay same-sex couples back for years of discriminatory taxation. Warren, who is running in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, re-introduced the Refund Equality Act in the Senate. The bill would allow same-sex couples to file joint amended tax returns to collect refunds from when they were married but before the federal government recognized those marriages. In 2004, Massachusetts became the first state to recognize marriage equality. But until the 2013 U.S. v. Windsor...

A recent Quinnipiac Poll found that the top six Democratic presidential candidates, including out South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, beating Donald Trump in head-to-head matchups. According to the poll, if Buttigieg faced off against Trump in the general election, he would win 47% of the popular vote, while Trump would win 42%. Former Vice President Joe Biden had the biggest lead against Trump, winning with 53% of the vote to Trump’s 40%. But Trump would be trounced by many of the...

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, sexual orientation has taken a backseat to age when it comes to choosing a presidential candidate. This is good news for the Buttigieg campaign, but not so much for President Trump and Democratic hopefuls Saunders, Warren, and Biden.  The poll, conducted in association with the Williams Institute, included 2,237 adults.  The poll was held in advance of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, widely recognized as the ignition of the modern LGBTQ rights movement, and...

Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is taking her campaign to Pete Buttigieg’s backyard. The out young mayor of South Bend, Indiana has been running neck and neck with Warren in recent polling. MSNBC will host a townhall with Warren in Ft Wayne, Indiana next Wednesday after she campaigns in Elkhart – a half hour’s drive from Buttigieg’s hometown. Indiana, a red state with a late primary, normally doesn’t get much attention early in the campaign season, but Buttigieg’s candidacy has renewed interest...
