fashion tips for the left leaning inauguration attendee
Bernie’s mittens are made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. She gave them to him 2+ years ago and was surprised when he began wearing them on the campaign trail. They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. pic.twitter.com/ErLr29lY2t

Quite the rallying cry from Bernie here.
Indeed, yes.Posted 2 months ago
Would like to think that Biden was aware of what Sanders intended to write; it’s not as if Sanders is just another Senate member – incoming chair of budget committee, strong personal and political support.
Must be tempting to use the reconciliation process given that McConnell is unwilling to cede the filibuster.
Quite the rallying cry from Bernie here. If only we had someone like him in the UK.

though not having agent orange there is probably the best thing, it’s kinda of going to reinforce the Don the outsider fighting the “swamp” in the eyes of the trumpist base. It’s coming over as very chummy and happy that the cheese puff is off to florida.Posted 2 months ago
Was anyone else hoping they’d just open the door of Air Force 1 and push him out? :p disappointed 🙁Posted 2 months ago
I’d have loved to see him walk up to the heliclopter and for the door to remain closed while an Uber cab beeped at him from the front gate.Posted 2 months ago

Dunno. I can’t help thinking that if he believes that is what is best for his country, perhaps he should have got himself elected.
Seriously?Posted 2 months ago

Just been in a meeting with some American colleagues. I congratulated them on having a new head of state and pretty much got a “meh”.
To quote their jokes:
“Trump is deranged, Biden is just senile” and “Kamela will be taking over soon enough”.
Edit: I think they were mostly Democrats too…Posted 2 months ago

How can you be pardoned for a crime you haven’t been convicted of? 🤔
A pardon can been given at any time after the act is committed, he can’t pardon anyone for crimes they’ve not yet committed, but anything after the fact is fair game.
They’re not supposed to be a ‘get out of jail free’ card for the mates of a President, although that has happened before, it’s not really rare. Bill Clinton pardoned his Brother for Cocaine possession for example.
Doesn’t mean they’re off the hook completely, if they really want to they can still go ahead with Steve Bannon’s case, he can still be found guilty and he would still be banned from doing certain things as a convicted felon, voting, he may also be banned from some roles in government. He just can’t be punished for it.
Also, it’s only a pardon for federal criminal crimes, he can still be tried on a state level, or in a civil case.Posted 2 months ago
I’m hoping the news will cut to Florida at 5 past 5 showing Trump being dragged out of his club in handcuffs after having been tasered.Posted 2 months ago

Very much this. Thank you, I have come back to this thread as events have unfolded, getting a kind of real time commentary from people that actually understand it has been invaluable.

Thanks everyone for contributing to the thread. I never thought it would be so bigly when I started it. 😀 It’s been great fun especially on the first weekend as we all watched Biden start to overtake Trump in the key states. Special thanks to thols for his Twitter reportage.
Probably best let it sleep for four years and we can resurrect it again and rename it in 2024.
Onwards to the Biden thread I guess.Posted 2 months ago
Office argument need settling.
Could a president who has served 2 terms then be elected as vice president further down the line?Posted 2 months ago

@thepodge – no or maybe yes. The twelfth amendment states:
“no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.”
While the 22nd amendment states:
concerns qualifications for election, and thus (strictly applying the text) a former two-term president is still eligible to serve as vice president (neither amendment restricts the number of times an individual can be elected to the vice presidency), and then succeed to the presidency to serve out the balance of the term (though prohibited from running for election to an additional term)
It’s not been tested yet!Posted 2 months ago
