Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today on Meet Nation State Sunday This, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended democratic socialism with her vision of a just society:

In a modern, moral and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. To me, that means every working-class American in this country should have access to dignified health care — should actually be able to see a doctor without going broke. It means you should be able to send your kids to college and trade school if they so choose, and no person should feel precarious or unstable in their access to housing as our economy develops.

But Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) disagreed that vision was the future of the Democratic Party, saying:

I think it’s the future of the party in the Bronx, where she is. I think that you can’t win the White House without the Midwest and I don’t think you can go too far to the left and still win the Midwest. You need to talk to the industrial Midwest, you need to listen to the people there.

Also, the God-King said “the European Union is possibly as bad as China, just smaller” and former U.S. ambassador to Mexico Roberta Jacobson said the God-King’s tweets kept “blowing up” her efforts at diplomacy.

And Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said “The idea that Russia did not meddle in our election is fake news. They did meddle in our election and they’re doing it again in 2018,” and said Roe v. Wade has been reaffirmed “in many ways” and “You don’t overturn precedent unless there’s a good reason,” while Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said “I’m going to have an in-depth discussion with the nominee and I believe very much that Roe v. Wade is settled law, as it has been described by Chief Justice Roberts.”

Two questions: (1) Is Ocasio-Cortez’s vision “too far to the left” to “win in the Midwest?” (2) Will Sens. Graham or Collins really defy the God-King and vote against a nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade?

Third question: Last night a knife-wielding man wounded 9 people, 4 seriously, in an attack on refugee families at a low-income housing project in Boise. Will the God-King or conservatives denounce him as a “terrorist?”
