During primaries like the one currently underway for the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrats are fond of claiming that, unlike “rich Republicans,” they “stand up for the little guy.” That concept became much more difficult to promote on Thursday after a report showed how lucrative of a legal career Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has had, even though N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly rushed to her defense and even took aim at a --- wait for it --- female Washington Post reporter's salary.
On January 11, Nancy Pelosi slammed as "crumbs" the wage increases and bonuses well over 100 companies had announced at that point after the new tax law's passage in December. Thursday, she went to the same well more stridently. The establishment press, including the Associated Press, still won't report Pelosi's and others' similar comments, because they know how toxic they are.
Since most of the truth about the Clinton Foundation hurts the candidacy of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, her campaign appears to have adopted the strategy of having Tim Kaine, her hapless running mate, lie about its activities and decisions to local reporters, while hoping that nobody outside the local viewing area gets wise to the tactic.

David Rutz of Washington Free Beacon came across the latest mind-baffling statement by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews early Friday afternoon when he remarked to Trump surrogate Dr. Ben Carson that non-white people are handicapped similar to how some develop or are born with “physical handicap or they’re born to poverty.”
On Saturday, MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry scolded guest Alfonso Aguilar for using the term “hard worker” because it’s demeaning to slaves and working women: "I want us to be super careful when we use the language 'hard worker,' because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall, because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like."
Our friends at the Washington Free Beacon has made a little montage of MSNBC host Ed Schultz's bat-guano crazy viewer poll questions.
Although none of them asked if Republicans want to "make money off your dead corpse," they came close. To read David Rutz's witty, snark-laden post, click here.
