Hillary Clinton is Feeling the Bern!

1st Update: Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will face off Sunday night (TONIGHT) in a town hall in Ohio. CNN and TV One are hosting a primetime Democratic town hall Sunday, two days before five states are holding primary elections that are vital in the race to the nomination. The town hall is to be held at Ohio State University in Texas at 8 p.m. ET. -- CNN's Jake Tapper and TV One's Roland Martin are scheduled to host the event, which will follow the same format as previous town halls. CNN has so far hosted five this year, both Democratic and Republican. Questions for the candidates are generated by the moderators and Ohio voters. (As usual, Clinton spoke last and was allowed to get in the last lick.)

2nd Update: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in Springfield on Monday (TOMORROW) to participate in a town-hall meeting hosted by cable channel MSNBC. The town hall, moderated by Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball" program, will air at (6 p.m. CT?) on the cable channel. No other details, including the venue and whether the public can see the event in person, were immediately released in an announcement from MSNBC. Clinton's opponent in the race for the Democratic nomination, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, will appear at an MSNBC town hall from Columbus, Ohio, at 5 p.m. CT Monday. The appearances will take place the night before Illinois voters go to the polls. (Chuck Todd to moderate.)

Meanwhile, especially since Bernie Sanders has won Michigan, the cable news channel MSNBC has been totally in the bag (no pun intended) for Hillary Clinton — even more more so than usual. All morning long they keep flashing poll numbers to show Bernie trailing in the upcoming primaries. They keep showing delegate numbers to show Bernie trailing behind Hillary. Their pro-Hillary guests might out number pro-Bernie guests by a margin of 10-to-1. What is Comcast (MSNBC's owner) so afraid of?

Comparing rallies.



  1. Union LEADERS endorsed Hillary; union MEMBERS voted for Bernie.

    Jim asked NPR that his last name be withheld because his union, AFSCME, has endorsed Hillary Clinton, and he supports Bernie Sanders — so he can't be quoted publicly going against his union.

    Jim: "We're pissed off. We haven't gotten raises. Our pensions have been cut. Our healthcare's increased."

    Ryan, a member of a building trades union in Cleveland, who also asked NPR not to use his last name because his union has endorsed Clinton, feels the same way as Jim.

    Ryan: "She's [Clinton] seen as the centrist candidate. And she's a big-money candidate. And big money and centrism hasn't been working for middle-class America for the past 30 years...since Reagan."

    Bernie Sanders overwhelmingly won voters in Michigan who thought trade deals cost American jobs by 2-to-1.

  2. It's not just MSNBC, CNN has also been giving Bernie Sanders a lot of pessimistic media coverage. And unlike Trump, neither cable channel rarely shows any of Bernie's rallies — and they are huge, just like Trumps. They used to be a little bit more subtle in their bias, but now they don't even try to hide it.

  3. "There has been a concerted effort in the media of late to announce the Clinton-Sanders race as statistically over -- often through the misleading use of "super-delegates" who, per the Democratic National Committee, don't formally vote for (or get counted for) any candidate until the summer -- with the predictable effect of depressing Sanders' turnout on primary days.

    What would happen if Sanders' momentum and recent polling data were accurately reported by the media, leading prospective Sanders voters to understand, correctly, that their votes this coming Tuesday could change the course of American political history?"

  4. TIME: What Hillary Clinton Is Selling to Ohio Voters (at the Ohio Democratic Party Legacy Dinner) "“To every worker in Ohio, and every worker across America, let me say this: If I am fortunate enough to be your President, I will stand with you and I will have your back and I will stop dead in its tracks any trade deal that hurts America and hurts American workers. The good jobs of the future are either going to end up in Asia, or Europe or here. I will tell you: We not only want them, but we will make sure that the jobs end up right here in Ohio and in the rest of our country. I think we need a President who is not just opposed to trade, we need a President who knows how to compete against the rest of the world, and win for America and win for America’s workers.”

    1. Of course, we all know she supported NAFTA, PNTR for China, and the TPP (45 times) — calling the TPP the "gold standard" for trade deals before changing her mind, saying because she didn't know what was in it. (Total B.S. liar.)

    2. Speaking to a crowd of about 500 people at M7 Technologies, a factory in Youngstown, Ohio, on Saturday night, Mrs. Clinton vowed to end steel dumping by China and other nations, a factor that had hit the economy in the state’s Mahoning Valley area:

      “I have always been committed to bringing back manufacturing,” she said. “And I’m the only candidate, on either side, who actually has a plan to do that.” (Total B.S. liar.)

  6. Hillary Clinton Wants to Have It Both Ways on the Death Penalty

    At a town hall event in Columbus, Ohio, tonight, Hillary Clinton took a question from Ricky Jackson, who was exonerated in May after 39 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. Jackson asked Clinton whether she would abolish the death penalty; she said that she would not.


    CNN’s Jake Tapper, who moderated the Democratic forum tonight, kissed Hillary Clinton on the cheek to welcome her. Jake Tapper once dated Monica Lewinsky. For the record, Tapper did not kiss Bernie Sanders when he took the stage Sunday night.

    I accidentally called Hillary Clinton ‘Monica’ when I interviewed her

    Hillary Clinton Has Long History of Collaboration with GOP on Foreign Policy: By the time Bill Clinton handed the White House keys over to George W. Bush in 2001, he’d already set the table for a full scale invasion of Iraq.

    Why America’s Worst Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, Loves Hillary Clinton: The corrupt politician's ties to the Clintons go back to Bill's first presidential campaign

    Now Hillary Clinton Won't Meet Embattled Mayor Rahm Emanuel (her former BFF) Bernie Sanders has made Clinton's ties to the mayor an issue ahead of the Illinois primary.
