Dude's been toking and then reading Democratic Underground. Drugs alone could not explain that degree of moronicity.

First she found love with Pete Buttigieg, who she voted for before attending the Trump rally. I wouldn't be surprised if some of those Democrats are plants.

What possible purpose would be served by those "plants" quietly attending a Trump rally, then going home?  If they went there and disrupted, sure, that would make sense.  But simply showing up to be counted, then leaving?  That makes zero sense.  "Inflating" the numbers at a Trump rally actually helps Trump.

All that being said, I would not be the least bit shocked if some of those Democrats were actually Republicans who simply lied to the media/pollsters out of general principle.  I personally do that all the time simply because I so despise the press.
Bernie is a big fake, well that is not news.

I still stand waiting for a Bernie supporter to name one thing he has ever accomplished.  I start asking for them to name three things, and then I drop back to one, and I get nothing but crickets.

Out of the hundreds of bills introduce by Sanders in the House and Senate, only three made it to law, and two of those were naming Post Offices.  I don't know what the third was.
Anyone else remember any time in history when the Feebs admitted they screwed up,and named names?

I sure don't.
Another great article, @pjcomix!  I like your written work the best!
'He is like me': Trump explains why Sanders would be his toughest opponent

President Trump predicted that the congested Democratic nomination race will go all the way to the party’s convention and that Bernie Sanders could prove the toughest opponent to beat in a general election.

Speaking to reporters during his flight to see the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, he said Sanders would offer the stiffest test.

“I actually think he would be tougher than most of the other candidates because he is like me, but I have a much bigger base,” he said.

Sanders is leading polls in the race for the nomination. He also has proven more adept at attracting followers on social media than his rivals, a strength he shares with Trump.

Supporters say he is bringing new and infrequent voters into the political process. And his energetic followers also turn out in numbers for his rallies — another feature of Trump’s success.

The result is a rash of media think pieces comparing two insurgent candidates who ran far from the party's mainstream to try to clinch the nomination, who both like to say "yuuuuge," and who share a populist skepticism for conventional thinking on free trade.

Jeanne Zaino, professor of political science at Iona College, said the comparisons overlooked a crucial difference.

"Sanders has been in Congress an awfully long time, and he was an elected official before that. Although Bernie Sanders might not be the establishment favorite, unlike Trump, he is not coming from outside Washington by any stretch of the imagination."

NASA is training SpaceX's first Crew Dragon astronauts for a much longer mission in space

NASA has revealed that the astronauts assigned to SpaceX’s Crew Dragon astronaut launch debut are training for a space station mission many times longer than initially planned.

Scheduled to deliver two NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS) no earlier than (NET) late-April or May 2020, Crew Dragon’s Demo-2 mission will be the first crewed launch in SpaceX’s 18-year history. As previously noted on Teslarati (and by NASA itself, briefly), Demo-2 will also mark the first time in history that a privately-built spacecraft attempts to launch humans into orbit.

Still, NASA has funded the development of Crew Dragon (and competitor Boeing’s Starliner) not to achieve firsts but to restore the United States’ ability to launch its own astronauts to the ISS. Along those lines, both Crew Dragon (Demo-2) and Starliner’s (CFT) astronaut test flights were nominally designed to last about a week or two before returning NASA’s astronauts to Earth – a full end-to-end test for both extraordinarily complex vehicles. Two weeks, however, is simply not long enough for those astronauts to practically serve as full members of space station crew, something the ISS generally requires. In response, NASA has been seriously considering extending Boeing’s crewed test flight and has just recently suggested that SpaceX’s own Demo-2 test flight will be similarly upgraded.

FBI's 'Case Agent 1' Stephen Somma 'primarily responsible' for FISA failures

The Justice Department Inspector watchdog referred FBI agent Stephen Somma for disciplinary review after an investigation into alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses.

Somma, a counterintelligence investigator in the FBI's New York field office, was identified only as "Case Agent 1" in Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report, released in December. Sources told the New York Times that Somma is that official. The FBI did not comment for the report.

Somma was “primarily responsible for some of the most significant errors and omissions" during the process of obtaining FISA warrants to wiretap Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in 2016 and 2017, according to Horowitz. Horowitz confirmed the FBI relied heavily upon British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s salacious and unverified dossier when pursuing the secret surveillance.

The DOJ watchdog found 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the FBI's applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to wiretap Page, who was under suspicion of being an agent for Russia. He was never charged with any wrongdoing.
