When he helped Obama make up a fake Russia collusion story that gave liberals and the media something to be fake outraged over for 3 years.

I like that he called his vote for the Iraq war a mistake. Imagine what it would be like to have a human being capable of self reflection in the White House? Someone who learns from their past experience and does something different. Man what a sight that would be.

Also, he’s not Trump

So I’ve only been a month at a tech company as a CSM and they liked my work enough to move me internally to another team as an Enterprise CSM.

Politics can change on a dime but I’m going to call the 2020 and 2022 elections. Biden (or whoever replaces him) will win and the Dems will take the Senate. The midterms will have the Republicans back in the House and Senate. Familiar pattern referenced by Clinton and Obama years when voters weren’t quite prepared with what they got in the initial two years.

So off the allegations are true that John Kerry passed on information to the Iranians, he should be barred from politics, removed from his current role, and prohibited from making any money every again on anything he’s done related to his political career.
