|TIM KAINE -- HILLARY CLINTON|
Today's schedule via DNC:
"Monday's events will start at 4 p.m. EST (3 p.m. CST) with the theme "United Together."
"Monday will focus on putting the future of American families front and center and how we're stronger together when we build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top and when everyone has a chance to live up to their God-given potential.
DREAMer Astrid Silva will share her story and her fight to keep families together," the DNC's website noted.
Keynote speakers will be immigration activist Astrid Silva, Vermont Senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and First Lady Michelle Obama."
Massachusetts delegation speakers:
"Boston Mayor Marty Walsh hosts a reception for delegates at 3:30 p.m. followed by his prime time speech to the convention, expected between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. (talk about “pretty good” time slot, huh?).
The Massachusetts connection continues as Congressman Joe Kennedy III will introduce Sen. Elizabeth Warren who will speak later in the evening."
In other news, the Goopers' favorite attention-grabbing embarrassment, a/k/a Ann Coulter, made fun of Americans with "thick accents," but left out the fact that Donald Trump's wife and potential FLOTUS has one of the thickest of thick accents, and like Fareed Zakaria, is a naturalized American citizen.
Ann Coulter is a nincompoop, always trolling for attention, and always making a dumbass fool of herself.
I, too, have speculated about this point and wondered how the "pious" Evangelicals would view this if it were a Democrat. Then I remember that those who continue to support a man who is everything they despise in every other human being -- I remember that they're moral cowards, and that explains their continued support for Trump.
"Over the last year there has been a recurrent refrain about the seeming bromance between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. More seriously, but relatedly, many believe Trump is an admirer and would-be emulator of Putin's increasingly autocratic and illiberal rule. But there's quite a bit more to the story.
At a minimum, Trump appears to have a deep financial dependence on Russian money from persons close to Putin. And this is matched to a conspicuous solicitousness to Russian foreign policy interests where they come into conflict with US policies which go back decades through administrations of both parties.
There is also something between a non-trivial and a substantial amount of evidence suggesting Putin-backed financial support for Trump or a non-tacit alliance between the two men."
Are the rabid radical right wingers who called President Obama "The Manchurian Candidate" paying attention to this? Or is this another instance of IOKIYAR?
