A few takeaways from the MAGA rally yesterday:

1. I have worked on campaigns and been active in politics since 1988. I had never been to a Trump rally though. These are much different than anything I have experienced. They are like revivals where Trump is a god. The lines that

get the loudest applause are the ones that are the most deranged.

2. These people have no use for GOP Senators or any other Republican who isn’t 100% loyal to Trump.

3. They really don’t identify so much as “Republican.” Of all the signs, flags, banners, hats and shirts, I never saw “Republican” or an elephant logo on anything. It’s not loyalty to a party, it’s to Trump.

4. Although they want Trump to remain leader, few believe he will run in 2024.

5. Mike Flynn is definitely running for president in 2024. These rallies are his attempt to take
over the MAGA movement. The big question is what Trump thinks about that.

6. People there were half for Flynn and half for Desantis in 2024. They have zero interest in anyone else, who they perceive as either too weak, RINO, or too disloyal to Trump.

For 3 ex-cops, will blaming Chauvin for Floyd's death work?

As the three weigh their strategies, legal experts say they are sure to be watching what kind of prison time Chauvin gets at his June 16 sentencing. Minnesota law sets the same penalties for aiding and abetting murder or manslaughter as for the act itself.

109 days after Jan. 6, "history will remember" is a complete joke

109 days after Jan. 6, "history will remember" is a complete joke

Today four Republicans in Congress who incited the insurrection (and three who still spread the Big Lie that Trump really won) were invited on TV as if Jan. 6 never happened

These media outlets want you to forget

The new GA law says that “[t]here shall not be a limit on the number of persons whose qualifications such elector may challenge.” In other words, mass challenges are now expressly provided for in Georgia state law.

Just watched another TV interview with the GA Secretary of State without a question about the mass-challenge provision. This is the worst provision in the very bad law.

LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman is urging business leaders to withhold economic support from politicians who seek to limit the right of any American citizen to vote.

"This should be a simple, single-issue reason to stop supporting any politician."
