AOC Only Gets 60 Seconds At Democratic Convention To Deliver Pre-Recorded Message


The DNC will air a 60 second pre-recorded message filmed by AOC in her home.

The convention is being held virtually because of the coronavirus, and speakers include former first lady Michelle Obama, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, who will deliver a live speech on Thursday, according to Business Insider.

Other progressive leaders such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are also slated to speak.

Its unclear if any other speakers are subject to the same time limits, and the DNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Forbes.

AOC did not criticize the party directly, tweeting a poem by Dr. Benjamin E. Mays in response: I only have a minute / Sixty seconds in it / Forced upon me, I did not choose it / But I know that I must use it, the poem reads.


Trump vows to block stimulus funding for mail-in voting and USPS

Source: Axios

President Trump on Thursday told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo that Democratic demands to fund mail-in voting and the U.S. Postal Service in ongoing coronavirus stimulus negotiations were a non-starter.

Why it matters: Trump directly linked Democrats' desired $3.6 billion for mail-in voting and $25 billion for the USPS to his continued baseless claims that increased mail-in voting will lead to widespread voter fraud.

"Those are just two items. But if they don't get those two items, that means you can't have universal mail-in voting because they're not equipped to have it," Trump said.

He claimed the 2020 election could lead to "the greatest fraud in history."

The lack of an audience for the Biden and Harris speeches...

...adds, in my opinion, a measure of gravitas that makes them more appealing to the undecided voter.

Paul Begala: Don't look down on Trump voters

(from the HACKS ON TAP podcast)

"My Party, and I love my Party, I've spent my whole adult life in it; but they've got a problem with intellectual elitism, a terrible problem. It's real. A lot of elite Democrats love to look down their nose at Trump voters. 'Oh, how could they fall for this con'. You know, one of the smartest people I ever worked for was Frank Lautenberg. Senator from New Jersey, passed on.He was the CEO of ADP; he was a data pioneer, made millions or millions and millions of dollars. You know what he did? He invested part of his Foundation with Bernie Madoff. Total Con. Total Con. Frank was the smartest businessman I knew at least; I asked Frank, I said 'how could you believe that con man?'. He said 'I wanted to.' And that's what Trump voters did; they wanted to believe; it's not a character flaw to want to believe that someone can come in and drain the swamp, and give you better healthcare for less money, and bring fundamental change and cut deals. I just think its really important for Democrats to stop looking down their noses at people who honestly believed that Trump was a change agent."
