DIFFICULT THREAD -- #BIDEN SHOULD WITHDRAW

1. I respect the will of the voters.

2. But new information has emerged supporting #TaraReade's account of being sexually assaulted by #JoeBiden.

3. Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.
4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL.

5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw.

6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden.

7. #Bernie can restart his campaign.

8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.
9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump.

10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace "the lesser of two accused rapists."

11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win.

PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

Everybody talking abt not being able to talk about #Franken w/nuance ...

Here:

— Boorish behavior ≠ full-on predator
— K-Gill is a consistent pol who did her conscience & I respect that sh**
— "Due process" is for courts
— Every1 says it sucks, even if they think it was right
AND (and this is truly the most important thing that I could possibly convey): A white man not getting what he wants is not a tragedy.

I don't even mean to be harsh. But our culture is hardwired to believe that if a man (usually white, usually wealthy, usually powerful) ...
... does not get what he wants, then somewhere, in some way, an injustice has occurred, and we work backwards from there. This is not the case.

📌If it is proven that Trump knowingly exaggerated his net worth, then journalists need to start using the word ‘lied.’

📌When anyone lies to a bank in order to receive credit or approval to underwrite a securities issue, this is called fraud.

📌Inv’n presented numerous incidents going back 20 years of Trump “inflating his wealth” when trying to obtain approval for loans or securities underwriting.

These incidents seriously call into question the quality of Deutsche Bank’s risk management enterprise-wide.

📌NY's attorney general is one of the most powerful in the nation. That should worry Trump.

📌If you're under the impression that the high crimes and misdemeanors we have recently witnessed will go unpunished in America, then you haven't been paying attention.

Your daily reminder that women are not responsible for men's bad acts.
#Franken resigned after EIGHT women accused him of sexual misconduct/assault.
He chose to leave the Senate rather than face his accusers.
Calling responsible women "mean girls" is #misogyny.
Period.
No other Democratic senators were accused of sexual assault.
Just Franken. Not one of the Democratic presidential hopefuls like Booker, Brown or Bernie (I know, "he's not a Dem!") were accused.
Just Franken.
A lackluster senator replaced by a more progressive and active woman.
Franken truthers still claiming that women are to blame for his actions because you liked #SNL are divisive and misogynist.
Sometimes men we like behave badly.
It's a (dangerous) fact women have had to deal with for millennia.
Don't accept it--tell/teach men to be better.
