Amy Klobuchar could not name Mexico’s President while on Telemundo

February 15, 2020

  We have seen several stories from multiple websites about how worried the Democratic establishment is at the prospect that Bernie Sanders is going to win the nomination. The leaders of the party believe that because he is a self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist he is too radical to win a general election so they have been hoping a more grounded candidate would step up. (This does not mean the Democratic leadership disagrees with Bernie Sanders they just do not want him to be so vocal about where the party really is nowadays.)

  The obvious choice would be Joe Biden but unfortunately for the party he is too busy threatening people, insulting Democratic primary voters, and reliving his glory days of taking on Corn Pop so his candidacy is just about over. Elizabeth Warren? Her campaign never got off the ground because, much like Hillary Clinton, she is just not likable and she comes off as a phony.

  This leaves the party with two candidates who may be positioned to make a move as we make our way towards Super Tuesday. One would be Pete Buttigieg, who has done surprisingly well so far, and the other would be Amy Klobuchar, whose unexpected strong performance in New Hampshire has given her a boost and propelled her into the conversation.

  And that brings us to the two candidates’ knowledge of foreign policy and world leaders and this is where Amy Klobuchar had a bit of a problem the other day. Pete Buttigieg did slightly better…

  At an event in front of Latin-Americans Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg were interviewed by Telemundo and when asked if they knew who the President of Mexico was this is how they answered:

“No,” admitted Klobuchar, a senator from Minnesota.

Showing them up was Pete Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana mayor and youngest of the eight candidates battling for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“Lopez Obrador… I hope,” he answered, hesitatingly.

  Mayor Pete did better than she did, at least he got the answer right even if he was not sure but this has to be embarrassing to Amy Klobuchar considering this was an interview with Telemundo during an event for Latin-American citizens. You would have thought her handlers would have had her prepared for a question like this but they obviously did not.

    Bloomberg will buy his way over all comers. Blatant hypocrisy is the bread and butter of the Democrats and it doesn’t get any better than a billionaire who wouldn’t give you the sweat off his balls if you were dying of thirst promising to be Robin Hood. Mike will get it done!

      I have a feeling Bloomberg is the man the establishment wants and I think they are hoping for a brokered convention so they can give him the nominee. How ironic will it be that the Democratic party will have as its nominee a rich, white, old man who is a billionaire?!

    Bernie’s extremism brings to mind what happens to a jury during a court trial. A sleaze lawyer will state something, knowing full well it’s going to be rejected, and the jury told to ‘dismiss it’ but of course the ‘seed has been planted’. All these ‘workers of iniquity’ (gross injustice’; evil; wickedness ~ not the “power drink” sold which ‘redefine it’) are used to ‘influence’ and ‘program’ the masses to ‘think that’s what’s going to happen’ and believing they have no power to stop it. The first and craftiest lawyer politician used a similar beguiling technique on Eve, who then used it on Adam. See how well that all worked out! (& Bernie gets another ‘free home’ for his ‘hard work’!)

      That’s right, the lawyer plants the seed and as long as the jury hears it they will remember it even if they are told to reject it. The same happens all the time and once the seed is planted the left waters it and keeps it growing until it bears the fruit they want.

      I hadn’t thought about it but they really have not been asked about foreign policy at all. The Dems whole platform is opposing Trump, other than that they really have no policy. They have to wait for him to do something so they know where they stand on it.
