Klobuchar Launches Failed Presidential Run

Someone should have thought through the optics on this, but given her reputation as a screaming harpy, I doubt any of her staff wanted to cross her.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar joined the Democratic presidential field on Sunday and was welcomed to the competition with a tweet from President Donald Trump, who mocked her for talking about global warming in her speech while giving it in the snow.

‘By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!,’ he sniped about the woman running for the right to take him on in 2020.

Klobuchar made her announcement on a snow-filled day in Minneapolis, in a speech that countered the president’s policies on climate change and immigration along with knocking his divisive tone in politics.

    This is good for Elizabeth Warren.

    She has potential to be a much bigger gaffe machine.

    This might be a Democratic primary filled with the dumbest candidates, ever.

    Can’t wait until Hillary and Biden get into the race…that would drop the collective average IQ below 60.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Nothing can top the R clown show of 2016.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Nord,

    We already have Pocahontus, Spartacus, a painfully embarrassing preacher from NY, and a former AG that was pro crime.

    Nothing is going to top this clown car.

    The Republican primary drew an unexpectedly awesome president!

    There’s nothing worse than a woman that’s a “screaming harpy”. She evidently doesn’t know her place.

  5. Merlin

    No hat, no gloves, no coat. Not afraid of a little weather. That’s a plus.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    I like the “screaming harpy” nickname.

  7. Le Roi du Nord


    Does calling a strong, smart woman like Klobuchar names make you feel like more of a man?   Or are you trying to emulate your idol, ol’ 45? If the latter it  shows how insecure and  petty you two are becoming.  Nah, I’m sure you both have been petty and insecure since birth…

    -Said “Le Roi du Nord,” the champion of security, while hiding (trolling) in anonymity.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    Just pointing out she seems to not treat her staff very well.

    Does being a woman mean you get an intersectional victim pass to treat others horribly?

    I think you are implying her gender gives her a pass to be horrible to her staff.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    Are the staff being forced to work with or for her?  If they want to stay on that is there choice, same if they want to go elsewhere.  All you do when making excuses like this is prove your inability to debate the merits of an issue.

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry, that “there”, should be “their”.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann

    …”inability to debate merits of an issue”.

    That is hilarious, many of your comments become about me, rather than the merits of an issue.

    I almost spit my beer out knowing you said that seriously….and I don’t even drink beer!

    Strong women make conservatives nuts shrink

  14. Le Roi du Nord


    Exactly !  Scares the daylights out of them.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    Not really, Kellyanne Conway and Ann Coulter are pretty cool.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    They may be cool to you, but to folks interested in truth and honesty they are pretty low-class.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann

    Sounds like strong conservative women make your “nuts shrink”.

  18. Le Roi du Nord

    Nah, I’m not into alternative facts.  But you have been conwayed biggly.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann

    I’ll take that as a “yes”.

    At least conservative women will say they are women.

    Liberal women…who knows, they could be a man.

  20. Le Roi du Nord

    Pretty big assumptions again.  Why not deal with the evidence?

  21. Kevin Scheunemann


    In a liberal lexicon where gender is fluid, can’t assume any liberal women are women.

  22. Pat

    Gender appears to be fluid in the conservative lexicon too. I point to conservative cutie Caitlyn Jenner.

  23. Kevin Scheunemann


    Bruce Jenner was a conservative.

    Caitlyn Jenner is a confused liberal and most conservatives still use “him” or “Bruce”, because conservatives do not deny the science of biological sex.

  24. Pat

    Oh Kevin,

    Caitlyn Jenner is a conservative.

  25. Kevin Scheunemann


    Not when it comes to gender fluidity.

    Conservatives believe in science when it comes to biological sex.

  26. Pat


    Is that part of an official doctrine that everyone must believe in order to be a conservative, or just your opinion?

  27. Kevin Scheunemann


    Official doctrine.

    To accept gender fluidity is to destroy the basic institutions and morals of western civilization.

    Conservatives (good ones anyway) believe in the foundational principles of Western civilization.

  28. Pat


    So your saying it’s your opinion.
