Coming after a defeat in the Kentucky governor’s race and sizable losses in Virginia’s legislative races, the Louisiana result seems certain to rattle Republicans as they head into the 2020 presidential election. 

Another spanking for Donny!!!!!

Boy that must hurt.

“That hasn’t changed, and that’s the way we’ve been governing.”

seems like the purple vote is where people want to be, Trumps endorsements seem to be turning people off, still 1 yrs to go still much more corruption to expose.

Why "despite" Trump?

Surely "because of" Trump would have been more accurate.

Edwards, a West Point graduate, opposes gun restrictions, signed one of the nation’s strictest abortion bans and dismissed the impeachment effort as a distraction.

The guy does have his good points.

dismissed the impeachment effort as a distraction.

Was there anything impeachable or illegal about Trump's phone call? Anyone who has read the transcript and has common sense would say no.

Where is the investigation of Biden? That is the quid pro quo in this whole fiasco.

Trump 2020 all the way

Soliciting a foreign goberent for campaign help is an impeachable offense.

Anyone who has read the transcript and has common sense would say no.

It wasn't a transcript, it was a partial summary. Try again.

Soliciting a foreign goberent ( government? ) for campaign help is an impeachable offense.

Trump was asking Zelensky to look into corruption. He doesn't need any help with his campaign, especially against Biden. Try again.

It wasn't a transcript, it was a partial summary

OK, what exact words of the "partial summary" are you saying is soliciting a foreign gov't for campaign help? Be specific now.

Trump is still without a doubt winning Louisiana in 2020. Disappointing that his choice couldnt win, but their governor is about as conservative of a liberal as one could be.

Trump was asking Zelensky to look into corruption.

To benefit his campaign against Biden.

No, to benefit people in both the U.S. and Ukraine. He doesn't need any help in beating Sleepy Joe like a drum, that I can tell you.

He ( Trump ) might be in prison in 2020!!!!

For what? Irritating anti-Trumpers?

Donnie LOSING again - its become a daily mantra for him...

Getting killed in the impeachment hearings....

Having to listen to Sondland dime him out next week...

Rick Perry intervening of behalf of a couple of his Texas buds with Ukraine to get them a sweetheart oil deal... Can you believe that! After trying to smear Hunter Biden, Rick Perry goes out and does far worse - and leaves the evidence there for all to see. That's a big time "Whoops"....

His brother from another mother Stone gets his time in the dock and has the book thrown at him...and ties Trump, Don Jr, and others to Assaunge and Wikileaks - and Russia - again...

Crazy Rudy's Ukraine partner Parnas has flipped and is now cooperating and talking about the bribe - and about his various meetings with Donnie - all the while Donnie says "I don't know him very well"...

And he still has to worry whether John "The Disaster" Bolton will seek a little payback for the insults and tell us all about the "drug deal"...

And he loses Kentucky and now Louisiana...after taking his third rate Lounge Act there...

Wow, that's major losing and humiliation....

Sure, if you watch CNN or MSNBC. All you hear is "bombshell testimony," lol, all I hear is

Heard it from a friend who....

Seriously, so far they ain't got nothing. They should have had some more rehearsals in the basement before taking their act public.

I don't even have access to those channels. I read more balanced news, from a few different countries. They aren't painting a good picture for Trump.

That said, Americans are stuck in their own media bubble, both the CNN watchers and the Fox news watchers Neither of them gets anything close to balanced news. Those of us outside of the US get more balanced reporting.

I think the Fox News watchers here are projecting. There are so many replies along the lines of seeing the only alternative to the partisan trash of Fox as CNN or other partisan media.

The idea of not being Punch or Judy doesn’t cross their minds. Serrano is constantly linking to Carlson, Hannity and Judge Jippy or whoever and expecting people to take this idiocy seriously.

Pretty much every media outlet except Fox and Russia Today...

And they're all Trump's handpicked team - Repub on Repub warfare - its great...

Seriously, so far they ain't got nothing.

That what the US taxpayer said when asking when Mexico is going to pay for the wall...

They should have had some more rehearsals in the basement before taking their act public.

Good advice for Trump, Crazy Rudy and Sondland - well, they can commiserate together at Rikers Island...

Donnie loves a spanking.

How? Hardly a win, it’s a continuation, flip a seat, then beer is on me.

Over 100 million do, now that’s power CNN and msnbc wish they had.

You gave a textbook example of seeing the alternative to partisanship as partisanship today:

No, you misunderstood:

How? Hardly a win, it’s a continuation, flip a seat, then beer is on me.

Which is textbook true.

Why are you running to partisans like Fox and CNN as the only options?

I don’t.

I’m sure your articles for one if the most respected news outlets in the English-speaking world don’t fall to this partisan level.

Exactly.

Trump loses again! fu fu fu

He won “re-election” it’s not technically a win for Dems, at least a new win or a loss for Trump because he didn’t pick up a new gubernatorial seat.

He won “re-election” it’s not technically a win for Dems, at least a new win or a loss for Trump because he didn’t pick up a new gubernatorial seat.

Considering that the Republicans have lost over 1000 seats in elections in the past three years, they should be starting to sweat. Last time that happened - to the democrats - the Republicans took the presidency on the next election. Here we are with the tables turned, and an election coming in less than a year...

Someone set their Maytag to "Full Spin"....

He lost big time and was forced to admit it....

During a rally Monday evening in Lexington, Kentucky, President Donald Trump urged his fans to go out and vote for incumbent Gov. Matt Bevin (R), warning them that a high-profile loss in a state he won by 30 points in 2016 “sends a really bad message” and pleading, “you can’t let that happen to me!”

Message sent Donnie - You're a Loser!

Democrats flipped tons of seats two weeks ago. You didn't say "beers on me" then, you and your far-right pals just said "doesn't count", and made excuses as to why the GOP getting its butt kicked was actually great news for Trump. Just like how you regularly assert that 6% is better than 90%.

still winning that state doesn't mean winning the election, dont let your over confidence or the illusion of it fool you, did not work well with Hillary in 2016

Dump Trump 2020
