Good Wednesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president delivers remarks at the Latino Coalition Legislative Summit
- 5:30PM Members of the Coronavirus Task Force hold a press briefing
Swampy Joe sweeps Supa Dupa Tuesday
Sleepy, swampy Joe is the big winner on Super Tuesday. The big losers are Mike Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren. Sanders made a disappointing showing winning only California, Colorado, Vermont and Utah. Mike Bloomberg won American Samoa and Sanders won the rest, including a surprise win in Texas. But the delegate count is close with Biden at 397 to Bernie’s 356.
Certainly the last minute bribes made to Amy! (VP?) and Mayor Pete helped Biden, I’m sure they were promised a mythical Biden Administration position, power position in the party or were threatened with the loss of Democrat party support for their future political efforts. There simply was no reason to drop out of the race when they did with only a 48 hour wait between South Carolina and Super Tuesday. They did it to stop Sanders and help the media generate a two-day long operation touting “Joementum.”
Mike Bloomberg really embarrassed himself and it remains to be seen if he will abandon his vanity run. Bloomberg wants to hang around as a failsafe in case Biden makes a public gaffe too difficult to ignore in which case the Democrats will need a last minute candidate that is not Bernie Sanders. On the other hand, he just might get out, who knows how these rich liberals think. He has the money to stay around. Biden hardly makes any public appearances, much like how Hillary Clinton ran her campaign. In Joe’s case, he clearly has some kind of mental acuity issues so the less frequently he appears publicly the easier it is to cover up his problem. Again, this is a page out of the Clinton playbook.
Elizabeth Warren will probably drop out after losing her own state last night. Where will she go? Where will her supporters go? I think the best case scenario is 50% Biden and 50% Bernie.
It looks like there is going to be a brokered convention for the Democrats and the closer the delegate counts of Biden and Sanders the better for the GOP. If Bernie is leading, the Democrats will have their superdelegates give it to Joe. If Joe is leading, the Bernie supporters will see it as another spurn by the establishment. A chunk of Bernie supporters will not support Biden but we don’t really know how many.
The next group of primaries are on March 10th, one week away. Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and Washington will head to the polls next week. Buckle up.

The media and Democrats continue to exploit the coronavirus outbreak to hurt Trump. It’s disgraceful. The virus is a very serious issue of public concern but at least half of the general public does not trust the media. How can you know if they are telling you the truth or trying to hype up and spin information or “leaks” to make Trump and the Trump Administration look bad? You can’t know and that’s dangerous. The media have a vested interest in making this pandemic as bad and damaging as possible so they can blame Trump. Where can someone obtain straightforward information about this serious health crisis? I wish I had an answer.
My advice is to keep calm and wash your hands. Stop buying masks.
