    Why do you consider this to be "the worst take"?

    Today's Rhode Island News:



    Spoiler Alert: there are only 11 registered voters in that precinct.

    Bernie does this thing constantly where he says something first without thinking about how it sounds and then has to clean it up either later in the interview or in a follow-up. Happens all the time. Bernie's quote makes it seem like PoC shouldn't run since white people are uncomfortable voting for them.

    “I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders told The Daily Beast, referencing the close contests involving Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia and ads run against the two.
    Emphasis mine on the bolded text.

    Yeah, that's a good point. I guess I tend to think of that as more of a completely dumbass way of phrasing things as opposed to a "wrong take." But yeah, it's a ridiculous thing to say. If they're uncomfortable for voting for an African American politician, then they are, by definition, racist, so what he's saying makes no fucking sense. That said, I think the rest of his statements were all spot on and correct.

    But, didn’t they get to vote for a black President just 6 years ago?

    Shade like that could single-handedly reverse climate change.

    This is disgusting, what could possibly be the official rationale for purging voters for inactivity? You should be applauding them for finally voting! They must have had some ‘official’ reason for it (even if we know the real reason).

    So glad Pete Sessions is gone. Now maybe cannabis reform can be debated on the floor for once.

    I had to read this a few times to figure out what happened: The address that was already on the envelope was a bad address so it was returned.

    Holy fuck. The literal pre-typed address got bounced back? And the county reported receiving NO mail-in ballots?

    Hmmmmmmm.

    I'm referring to Pete Sessions the Congressman from the Rules Committee that has blocked every piece of cannabis legislation from ever hitting the house floor.

    Oh my god, I'm loving this woman more and more every day. I really hope this is just the beginning of a long and successful career in politics.

    She seems like such an awesome person. However, I always get the impression that she doesn't know what she's talking about when she does interviews though. I think she's just an odd interviewee though. I hope she kicks ass and paves the way for more millennials in congress
