Harris secures enough delegate endorsements to win the Democratic presidential nomination
  • It's not official until the convention, but it's not hard to keep a tally of the number of delegates that have voluntarily endorsed her or said "she will get my vote". They're just reporting that the tally is high enough that she'll win if nothing changes. It's just....the news reporting stuff.

  • Biden's exit makes Trump the oldest nominee in U.S. history
  • Last time we had a candidate this old, he was a Democrat and he stepped down. If I was a young Republican voter I'd be asking myself why my party only wants to prop up elderly candidates. It's insane to allow someone as old as Trump into the oval office, and we've heard many Republicans say this recently! Hopefully they'll continue to voice this opinion and vote accordingly. I know what I would do if I were them.

  • Trump Campaign Immediately Drops Ad Attacking Kamala Harris Over Southern Border and Her Laugh
  • I promise you you're the exception for people your age. No one I know over 50 has heard of Lemmy.

    And also, if old people are so sensitive to attacks on old age why wasn't Biden leading in the polls?? That's been the main attack on him for years, and people have said much worse about him than what is said about trump in this thread. If people suddenly clutch their pearls when it's Trump being mocked for being senile, they were a Trump supporter to begin with.

  • Trump Campaign Immediately Drops Ad Attacking Kamala Harris Over Southern Border and Her Laugh
  • Kamala has notoriously been one of the most invisible VPs in recent memory. I actually think that could work in her favor. What in her record from the last 4 years is even attackable? She can campaign on all of Biden's wins as his VP, but all of her negatives are from before she was VP and are well known by now. She won't lose voters over those things at this point.

  • Ah, the classics.
  • My first concert ever was Fall Out Boy in 2006, when I was 16 years old. I saw them again this year, 18 years later. The time between those 2 shows was longer than the time between my birth and the first show, and to me it felt like only a few years had gone by. The next time I blink I'll be 50.

  • Pelosi told Biden: You’re dragging down Democrats
  • Though perhaps if Biden lost in 2016 we would've had Hilary running in 2020, and who knows if she would've won that one. Then we could be approaching Trump's 3rd term (with help from his friends in the Supreme Court) with Russia chewing through Ukraine and on their way to Eastern Europe, a fractured NATO alliance, and probably some other unimaginable horrors.

    With Trump running in 16, 20, and 24, I don't know if there's a timeline change that would prevent 2024 from being an absolute clusterfuck. Unless maybe RBG had retired during Obama's term as she should have.

  • Rule
  • One of the first times I smoked weed I did it wrong and swallowed a bunch of smoke. I proceeded to get sick in the back seat of my friend's car and started believing that my windpipe was made out of glass and if I turned my head it would shatter and slice my throat open. I still think about it sometimes, never knew it had a name!
