Weekend: What's going on?
MAGA openly embraces criminality with Trump mugshot. Biden campaign skewers GOP, while Biden mocks Trump. How dangerous is Vivek Ramaswamy?
It was a week in which more history was made as Donald Trump became the first former president to have a mugshot. And MAGA is embracing it, swooping up the Trump campaign merchandise and even posing in mugshots themselves in '"solidarity.” There’s no doubt it galvanized the Trump base. What does it mean for his attempt to get elected president again?
The Democrats and Joe Biden’s campaign were not sitting it out as the GOP showcased their first primary debate last Wednesday night, exposing the disarray the party is in even as extremism still fuels it. And the president himself mocked Trump’s mug shot, which you know will drive Trump nuts. What else should Democrats be doing?
A lot of attention has been focused on tech multimillionaire Vivek Ramaswamy after his combative GOP debate performance, in which he showed himself to be a Trump mini-me. Further reports throughout the week focused on his promotion of conspiracy theories and radical policies, and his willingness to mold himself into whatever the Republican base wants. What does his candidacy tell us about him and the GOP moving forward?
