Mark Sanford May Challenge Racist in Chief for GOP in 2020

[Did anyone watch live, I thought Hickenlooper was going to be a guest today?]

Fmr Governor and House Rep (R-SC) Mark Sanford says he’ll give it 30 days to see if there’s interest for him to challenge Racist in Chief in 2020. Joy points out that RiC will prey on Sanford’s previous extramarital affair, Sanford addresses this. (I mean lol @ Tr/mp using that as a weapon). Joy reminds that he plays really dirty, is Sanford up for that. Mam says GOP is afraid to break ranks to support him, because that may make them lose. Sanford calls out the previous Dem debate, neither night mentions our debt and deficits and potential financial storm we’re facing.

Joy brings up economy again, how will GOP respond to him. Sanford tells folksy analogies, talks tragedy of our deficit and interest on the debt, stats and numbers, a storm is brewing. Sunny mentions RiC doubling down on attacks on the Squad, does he think comments are racist? = Yes (duck analogy). Mentions it’s at odds with the Bible, at odds with our Constitution, the institutional framework is that we debate at the table. Sanford says everyone plays the Tr/mp game by always reacting. [UNFOLLOW TR/MP GODDDD]. Sunny wants to know why GOP isn’t calling him out, he points out they came at him just on exploratory run. Joy says he should run as Independent (lol). He name drops McCain (but no My Father™). Whoopi says decide in 15 days not 30 days because we’re a dumpster fire now.

Hot Topic Racist In Chief Incites SEND HER BACK

This f/cker is trying it, claiming later that he didn’t know the crowd was going to chant SEND HER BACK at his KKK rally in Greenville NC last night but obviously it was planned.

[Plays clip] Racist in Chief lies about the not-white not-men in Congress, particularly Ilhan Omar. The hosts agree it takes it to a whole different level. Sunny was terrified, tells family lore, and it’s discriminatory according to federal law. Mam felt it was dystopian. Feels it’s taking away ability to debate policy by making it racist, xenophobic. Her generation will answer for his trash. Wants to know where the trash offspring are. Joy is sick of everyone apologizing for him. Brings up McConnell’s wife who is from Taiwan. Racist in Chief suffers no consequences, invites violence towards her and others. Joy wants him sued for hate speech.

Hot Topic Rashida Tlaib Says Things

[Plays clip]. Whoopi said none of this should have happened, because people need to debate personally. Sunny and Joy debate sensitivity to race even if the topic isn’t about race itself. Whoopi and Mam felt Pelosi was addressing policy not race and then it got out of hand. Whoopi takes issue with what she sees as ageism towards the women who came before them, fighting on their own against a sea of men (Pelosi, Feinstein, etc). Sunny feels when someone does lob it back to four women who are women of color, their experience will be different. Racist in Chief drove the stake and escalated. Joy is distressed and frightened, seen too many WWII docs to not see what’s happening. Mam doesn’t want people thinking all GOP are like those in Greenville NC. (except they are). They all want McConnell to speak out because we know what happens when people don’t speak out. Whoopi said she liked what Omar said, how her (previous) words made other feel and it was a learning experience.

Hot Topic Rand Paul is a Bad Person

Rand Paul (Kentucky) and Mike Lee (Utah) are the two Senators who blocked voted on 911 victims fund. [Plays clip] Jon Stewart goes off on Paul’s crybaby tears about the economics. Paul and Lee both voted for the tax cut, but now they don’t want to fund the 911 responders healthcare because it will cost a lot of money. Mam says they’re why people don’t like Libertarians (ok, true). They all think he’s a disgrace and hypocrite. It’s not an attack on NY, it was attack on the country (Pentagon, etc), but the punishment feels like it’s anti-NY. Sunny quotes more stats about the tax cut impact on deficit, and that Omar is the one who sponsored that bill for first responders. Whoopi gets fired up.

Hot Topic Teen Skipping College Still Wants His College Fund

Another reddit reference. Kid skipped college, became an electrician, made a case to get his college fund anyway. He didn’t want to go to a traditional university. He’s going to be an apprentice to learn a trade. Hosts discuss. Sunny doesn’t like that he’s being paid for his apprenticeship, not going to a technical school with tuition. They have two other siblings who need the fund. The fund was for all the siblings, not just him. Mam sides with Joy. Not everyone wants to go to college.

Mam My Father™ count = 0
