Are they Centrists or Extremists? Al Franken: Be ruthless like GOP. MSM screws Build Back Better.

Politics Done Right

Centrists are really extremists and we pay the price. Al Franken wants Dems to be just as ruthless. It is MSM screwing the Build Back Better message. It’s not the Democrats. It’s the media that is screwing up the Build Back Better message. The media filters Biden’s Build Back Better message through their sensationalized narrative then blames Democrats for not telling Americans how the bills make their lives better. Al Franken on Republicans: We have to be as ruthless. We have to be stone-cold killers. That is the message that Democrats should all heed. So-Called ‘Centrists’ Are Really Incredibly Dangerous Extremists: Their supposed “seriousness” poses a serious threat to everyone but the small group of elites whose short-term interests they actually represent. This MNSBC Host, Tiffany Cross dissed Stephanie Grisham’s Trump tell-all book: Failing up. Many ex-Trump officials are now capitalizing on their infamy with purportedly tell-all books. Tiffany Cross will have none of it. --- If you like what we do please do the following!
