if Susan Sarandon is not the James Woods of the left, does that honor go to Dick van Dyke

The year-round Silly Season continues and apparently there is a primary insurgency against Nancy Pelosi, as if we could have imagined Steny Hoyer holding Trump’s tiny feet to the impeachment fire. Then there’s celebrity endorsers.

Actress and activist Susan Sarandon hit back at 2020 Democrat Pete Buttigieg for claiming that front-runner Bernie Sanders could undermine down-ballot Democrats if he is the party’s nominee in November.

After Sanders’s overwhelming win in the Nevada caucuses Saturday night, Buttigieg took aim at the Vermont senator in a speech to supporters, slamming his campaign as an “inflexible, ideological revolution.” The former South Bend, Indiana, mayor portrayed Sanders as the opposite of a unity candidate and claimed a ticket with him at the top could weaken the party as a whole.

According to Buttigieg, Sanders would hurt down-ballot Democrats and could cost the party its majority in the House of Representatives.

“I believe the only way to truly deliver any of the progressive changes we care about is to be a nominee who actually gives a damn about the effect you are having, from the top of the ticket, on those crucial, frontline House and Senate Democrats running to win, who we need to win, to make sure our agenda is more than just words on a page,” he said.

“Susan Sarandon sure has a lot to say about getting rid of Speaker Pelosi. I’d like to know her plan to get rid of Mitch McConnell.”

“Senator Sanders is ignoring, dismissing, or even attacking the very Democrats we absolutely must send to Capitol Hill in order to keep Nancy Pelosi as speaker, in order to support judges who respect privacy and democracy, and in order to send Mitch McConnell into retirement,” Buttigieg added.

In addition to making the remarks before his Nevada crowd, Buttigieg also tweeted out excerpts from his speech. Sarandon, who has endorsed Sanders for the second election cycle in a row, took issue with his claim that nominating her candidate of choice would come at the cost of losing leaders in the party.

One of the reasons I hate politics is all the in fighting. Each candidate has to put the other down. I would like to see just one candidate speak about what he sees for our future without berating someone else.

Susan Sarandon, I give her comments all of the attention they deserve. She wants to unseat Nancy Pelosi & unless she lives in that congressional district she should mind her own business. Why do these people think we are interested in anything other than their acting abilities?

I wish they would keep their attacks to the right. This is horrid a d Trumpian. We can’t exist unless we all think alike. Maybe we need a far left govt to get us back on track. We certainly cannot continue with a far right dictator.

Whoever decided to not go to the courts to subpoena Trump to testify is who needs to be replaced. That/those are the ‘leaders’ who failed this country.
