The Washington State Senate passed a bill designed to prevent President Trump from being on the ballot in that state in 2020. Since Trump declined to release his personal income tax forms (which is not required by federal law), the bill requires every candidate to have released five years’ worth of taxes to be on the ballot.
You’d assume from President Trump’s Twitter feed that he doesn’t need any help coming up with controversial statements to make his critics’ eyeballs pop out in outrage. So why do Democrats and media outlets (pardon my redundancy) think they need to keep making up things he never said to get themselves riled up over?
Whenever there is some unspeakable terror attack like Thursday’s mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand, people naturally try to make some sense of it in the hope that if it can be explained, or if blame can be properly assigned, then perhaps we can prevent similar attacks.
As I predicted yesterday, “Beto” O’Rourke’s presidential roll-out wasn’t greeted with as much adulation as he expected.
