I know my countries politics are somewhat of a joke right now so I can't really comment, but the fact that Sanders and Warren could be considered extreme in the US is a mark of how bonkers US politics really is compared to the rest of the free world. It's not a direct translation obviously but from what I know of them in most of Europe they'd be firmly centre-left. Biden/Obama centre-right.

Not that the UK really has a major centre ground party at the moment, out two main parties having veered off to the extreme ends of their bases. Warren/Sanders would fit right in amongst the MPs who've left Labour over the past year for being too left wing.

Donald Trump is the Clown King and I'm really glad he didn't sign my commission. I know I said the impeachment was silly but get that gadfly out of office, please.

I got an update that Michael Bloomberg is making a run at the presidency as a Democrat.

I don't know much about him aside from he's a billionaire and is better-regarded as the NY mayor than Giuliani ever was. I think he's the first candidate in...a decade to be of decent quality.

Anyone who lives in NY have objections about him?

He's a good guy but I think he's gonna poll at close to 0 and drop out pretty quickly.

Most likely he's joining the race to stave off negative stereotypes about the rich and provide a "Hey wait but being a billionaire is fine actually don't eat me" counterpoint on stage to the fiercely antitrust Warren/Sanders.

I was watching an American TV channel and saw an ad for Bloomberg's campaign come up. The voice said, "He will make the rich pay their fair share." I thought: was this a joke? Now that he's 77 years old and will be dead soon NOW he's willing to share some of his billions upon billions of dollars?

Not yet, the senate still needs to vote too. It'likely to not pass through the senate, but at least you will see which politicians will put party above constitution.

Was talking more about which of the corrupted dems. But maybe one or two GOP members will surprise us.

Extreme right wing individuals paint the center as extremist left to veer people more to the right
