A number of strong Democratic candidates for president are entering the 2020 race, and Donald Trump is naturally trying to push back against them by resorting inappropriate and idiotic zingers. Senator Amy Klobuchar officially kicked off her campaign yesterday, and she reminded us of her toughness when she went through with the speech even after it began snowing at the outdoor venue. Trump thought he saw an opportunity. He was wrong.
Donald Trump posted this juvenile tweet aimed in the Senator’s direction: “Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!”
Really? This is the best that Trump could come up with? She looked like a snowman? And he still doesn’t understand the difference between weather and climate? In any case, Amy Klobuchar wasted no time hitting him back and upping the ante: “Science is on my side, Donald Trump. Looking forward to debating you about climate change (and many other issues). And I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?”
It’s becoming more clear how the 2020 Democratic candidates plan to take on Donald Trump. They’re going to hit him hard on the issues, such as climate change, but they’re also going to show no fear when it comes to firing right back at him on the personal stuff. After all, bullies like Trump always reveal themselves to be cowards once you hit them back with equal or greater force. We also need to keep in mind that Trump is more likely to be in prison by 2020 than in the 2020 race, so the Democrats could be facing some unknown Republican nominee.
