Remaining closed to get Trump out could backfire on the Democrats. Not only does Trump still have a good chance to win, but those Democrats put themselves in a position to lose the governorship to a Republican.

That doesn't COUNT!!! Trump can do anything because he is the great leader of 'Merica.

I would like to add that saying AOC is the face of the Democratic Party is extremely misleading. Anyone that pays any sort of attention to politics knows that the GOP is painting her that way to try and make her the official representative of the Democratic Party . A one term House member is not the face of a party. :roll: :roll: :roll:

That's awful, there's absolutely no defense of a statement like that. I hope she loses her next election bid as a result. That said, as @The Butcher alluded to, she is far from being the face or the voice of the Democratic Party. I wouldn't assume most Democrats - or Republicans - really want to see the country get any worse right now, we all may differ on what we think gets us there but our collective goal is the same. I think Trump is doing a fine job of losing this election on his own, I really don't think he needs any help with that. I haven't decided whether or not I'll vote for Biden, but I unequivocally refuse to vote for Trump.

Ya, don't say anything about the tweeet in question, just turn it and say something bad about a Republican. You're making your party proud!

Maybe not the face of the party, but she is a very popular person to a lot of people on the left, and a very recognizable face now. I mean how many other congresswomen/men can you name from other states?? I can't name many but I know Ilhan Omar and I know AOC. Dan Crenshaw, the eyepatch guy, is about the only other one I can think of.

Lots of members of the house gained notoriety during the impeachment hearings.

Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Devin Nunes, Adam Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Nancy Pelosi, Steve King, Ted Lieu, Maxine Waters, Katie Porter, Hakeem Jefferies...are a few off the top of my head.

I love how whenever a republican mentions that some democrat leaders might be specifically staying locked down to hurt Trump and the economy, everyone rushes to call them conspiracy theorists and "grandma killers" but when hard evidence to prove it pops up, all you have is excuses and deflections.

This tweet is FAKE. C'mon, people, do a tiny bit of research - especially those of you who constantly rant about "fake news".

You are kidding? "The Phenom" literally says on the cover says she is a lightning rod! That is from GOP attacks and right wing media focus on her! :lol:
"Women shaping the future" was published on Feb 28, 2019. At that point Fox was mentioning her name around 75 times per day, it makes sense to have name recognition (from detractors in her case) on the cover. Also, the cover is going to show the diversity of the House, and she is 1 of 11 congresswomen of the Hispanic caucus. But I guess we can pretend a congresswoman for 18 months is the Democratic Party...

Vet the fake tweet you tried to pass off as real. They're very easy to create. Here's one I just did.

Ok, it looks like a fake tweet. I didn't know you could search tweets. New at twitter.

Sorry for the mistake.
