I don’t know much about this person but I have an uncle who sure loves to post about her. I’d unfollow him but sometimes it’s fun to see what the right side believes. Same with he left.

It is adorable how anything negative about her bothers you though

I think that’s the bad part. People take it too far, like complaining about her dancing instead of focusing on just the ignorant shit she says. I think that’s why people love to defend her for everything
[DOUBLEPOST=1547937295][/DOUBLEPOST]Also can someone explain how this works.

While Trump is President, is he the only one we’re allowed to criticize? Or just any republican since he’s “Republican?”

How long after he’s not president can we also criticize democrats? Is it right away or is there some sort of grace period?

Anyone can criticize anyone, as far as I know. The idea that her inexperience is analogous to Trump's is pure idiocy, in the true sense of the word. Of course she is inexperienced, she's 29 years old. But the power she wields is as one member of a 435 member body. She has had one month in office. The people that jump on the bandwagon of discrediting her are using it to discredit democrats in general, youth citizens as a whole, and the idea that working for some sort equitable society is immature and ignorant. To pick her out instead of the racist status quo fuck-ups that try to marginalize (and destroy) anyone who is not white and/or from long-term wealthy familial dynasties shows ones cards in a very unforgivable manner, IMO.

Sorry that was more directed to Nebraska, as he has had an issue with me criticizing her (even though it’s only been like 2-3 times]

I agree

I see this as well, but it’s not to say that everyone who is discrediting her is doing so to discredit democrats in general. I’m not sure bahone here has

I'm of the opinion that she really needs no recognition at this point and that we will see how she conducts herself as time goes on. I do understand the general discontent with the state of politics and politicians as a whole. I do not agree that we need, as a principle, to elect representatives that have little to no experience.

I agree with this (and in the past I’ve shared my opinion that Trump is to blame for the wave of inexperienced politicians.

And I think she gets the recognition or “obsession” from the right she does because of her platform. She is popular with the youth and is consistently in the spotlight but with it she says some ignorant things. Because she’s in the spotlight, Republicans focus on her, which puts her more in the spotlight and the cycle continues. I don’t even disagree with some of her ideas (specifically the raise for aids)
