ou hit it on something I haven;t realized until now. Pretty much all his surrogates are has-been s (have beens?), Uygur, Hartman, Greenwald, West, Reich & assorted Guardian/Intercept purveyors used to have an audience – during the Bush years and lost it under Obama. which is, whether they are aware of not, their real beef. Just as 🐘🐘 discovered that deep down , opposition is the best they can ever do for themselves, so did these people. How can they rant against the machine when the machine gets the economy going and people appreciate it? They are all, like Sanders an anachronism and I read somewhere, they actually hope D would lose so they can start a new party (why can’t they do that now?🤔) Oh, and as an aside – it would be honest for many of these people to disclose that they are paid by Qatar (Uygur) Iran (Greenwald) Moscow(Hartman). Nothing wrong with voices from faraway as long as they don’t pretend to be something else.
