With the announcement on Monday that Cory Booker would be leaving the race, the Democratic primary field became decidedly more melanin-challenged. It’s worth mentioning and mocking, of course, because the Democrats never, ever stop talking about diversity.
The other things that they have difficulty shutting up about are the evils of wealth and their party’s appeal to younger voters in America.

They had a get out of jail free card for the last debate, when Andrew Yang’s eleventh hour qualification for the debate lent it a smidgeon of ethnic/racial flare.

OK, there’s Mayor Pete too, but nobody over there likes him.
As a citizen journalist and investigative reporter, I am committed to accurately reporting the news. Wide awake, never asleep, I grew up in a 1960’s patriotic household, aware of the truth behind the false narrative.
