The mainstream media has completely lost it! Welker was at dinner with Jason Miller, Dana Bash, Robert Costa and others just prior to the GOP debate and now she has an interview with the lying, crazy AF former guy. I have lost respect for her. I am also very nervous about the uninformed American public who so readily fall for anything. On Jan. 6, 2021, the former guy attempted a coup! He is also liable for defamation and sexual assault against E. Jean Carroll.

I really don’t understand what is happening here! We dealt with this guy before and he is going to be a complete nightmare if he is reelected. What’s even worse? Is the media is complicity. How is it that Kirsten Walker’s debut on Meet the Press is going to feature Donald Trump! !?? we are slowly being slid into fascism, and it scares the shit out of me

The sheer audacity of people to question the wisdom of someone who staved off burgeoning fascism in this country and must contend with a corporate media that's hellbent on ditching democracy because it thinks the revenues will still be there when the fascists takeover. Cannot stress enough that the impending bloodbath next year will be for clawing back rights from people who no longer believe in the democratic experiment. Ignatius and Romney should get out of the way because in their own way allowed a complete doofus to harm this nation's status in the world.

What really bothers me is Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have done a wonderful job, people on the democratic side have said so, now they want him to step aside, since things are going so well even thought he fairly won the Primary, the Election, and even kept the Senate in the midterms.

Our Liberal Media are doing their very best to ensure the return of The Former Guy to the White House: he's good for eyeballs, clicks, ad rates, and voter attention. Biden's calm, centered competence is useless to them. There's not enough to get outraged about, there's no scandal to draw attention to their pages/screens/products.

Until we realize that the media IS the problem, and stop looking to the media to solve our problems, we'll be stuck with their self-serving actors and owners. No better example of their complicity: Meet the Press hosts Trump as their new host debuts.

As Hannah Arendt has stated time and again.. fascism proceeds in incremental steps, it chips away at democracy, it chips away at our institutions, it chips away at logical thinking... As Goebels said, use Democracy to abolish it, if they leave the door open we will charge right in. Unfortunately we have this scenario today along with propaganda, conspiracy theories, people in power who do not want our Constitution, just power plain and simple. Thanks Mike.

Biden should take up the former guy on the mental acuity and physical endurance tests that he says he'll win. Biden will wipe the floor with him. Will that convince the voters?

These days, Trump never misses an opportunity to call Biden and Democrats “fascists” (followed by another accusation of “Marxist). Democrats need to go all in on the “f” word, because with Trump, the description is actually appropriate. Don’t allow fascist Trump to neutralize the word that perfectly describes the political instincts of this madman.

These people are so naive. They obviously have no clue what the situation really is, and have learned nothing from Trump and his supporters, 1/6, Proud Boys, and so on. Do they really think Trump would ever remove himself as a candidate? That alone shows they Trump is a regular Republican and not a narcissistic dictator wannabe.

The frightening thing is that this is all so obvious to most people, but these so-called leaders are so out of touch and have zero insight.

Ugh… the Biden Is Too Old talk has gone mainstream. I'm not sure what these people are thinking. With a primary of Democrats, another unknown is introduced. We cannot have ”fill in the blank” vs Trump.

I'm so glad I got to hear your preview of this article when I raised the question during the Zoom conference call. I had asked for the uncomfortable number of people who've expressed their hope for having Biden challenged by a 'rising star,' but agree that this administration has done an amazing job of rescuing and then improving so many issues that better the nation. And lets hope people remember that we need progressive candidates winning their elections, whether they are running for the local school board or the US Senate.

Democrats need to work on consistency and Messaging. Capitol M. It does not require a deep analysis to understand the alternative to Biden. Actually I think a lot of people would love no Democracy ( until it affects them). Unity and consistency are critical. As much as I disagree with Republicans their messaging you don’t forgot ( obviously not on policy bc there aren’t any ). They’ve been very bold with the simplistic and distorted bigotry bullhorns. Dems need to be repetitive and find messages that the public will remember

Thank you, Michael.
