I wish Thom would ask Bernie Saunders why he voted for the 2010 War Funding Bill. Democrats Ron Wyden and Russ Feingold voted against. Where is the great "independent" Bernie Saunders? He votes with the establishment Demos on big votes, like healthcare and the war. I think he is a phony progressive, and Thom should ask him some real questions instead of a fanfest.

You're asking good questions and I'd like to know the answers, too. I've had the same thoughts.

It all began, where else, on Twitter, where on Wednesday night, Trump went after Chuck Jones, the local union president for the factory at the center of his Carrier deal.
