Yesterday evening in Atlanta, MSNBC and The Washington Post hosted the November Democratic presidential debate.
Presidential candidate Julian Castro — the only Latino still running — was not allowed to be there, but he was one of the most effective members of the House Intelligence Committee yesterday in questioning Donald Trump’s Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland.
But Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was on the stage.
Associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman is a woman of many talents, and it was Sherman who was able to teleport the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development from the U S Capitol to the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
ASR Sherman observed Castro jumping from his seat in the audience, to the stage, where he confronted Gabbard, and asked her why she met with Syrian Butcher-in-Chief Bashar al-Assad.
“Tulsi,” Castro calmly asked, “I know you’re fluent in Samoan, Hawaiian, and Arabic, because it was Bashar who taught you Arabic when you met with him in 2017.”
“And,” Castro continued, as MSNBC host Rachel Maddow turned to her three female moderator colleagues in some perplexity over Castro’s unexpected appearance, “Tulsi, you showed incredibly bad judgment went you went after Hillary Clinton as representing what you referred to as 'The Rot' in the Democratic Party."
Suddenly, Gabbard gave Castro the finger, and she was immediately escorted off the stage by DNC operatives; and Castro immediately took Gabbard’s place on the stage.
Gabbard is not running for re-election, which means that Hawaii’s next Congressperson will be associate soitary reporter Sam Longworth.
Both Julian Castro and his twin brother, Joaquin Castro, are graduates of Harvard Law School.
As soon as NBC moderator Kristen Welker saw Julian on the stage, she interrupted Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and asked Julian whether, if elected, he would appoint Joaquin as his Attorney General.
Julian immediately said no, and explained that President Kennedy should never have chosen his brother, Robert F. Kennedy, as his Attorney General.
We here at AP couldn’t help wondering why Trump’s Medicare and Medicaid chief, Seema Verma, wanted to spend thousands of taxpayer dollars to make her look more glamorous, but that was the plan: through Glamour magainzine: https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/20/contractor-glamour-magazine-profile-seema-verma-071727.
