Amy Klobuchar Announces 2020 Presidential Run From BOOM ISLAND!

2020 presidential election

Joining an increasingly deep bench of 2020 hopefuls, Amy Klobuchar has now officially announced her plans to run for President of the United States! From Boom Island! With guest DJ Dudley D! And it was VERY, VERY snowy.

Klobuchar, is an extremely popular Senator in a purple state, which could give her an advantage in a field mostly filled (so far) with contenders from straight up blue states. Though, awkwardly, her announcement comes on the heels of reports that she is having trouble getting a staff together for her 2020 run on account of how she is not very Minnesota Nice to her aides.

In her speech, Klobuchar shared her family's working class street cred, touched on the I-35 bridge collapse, and announced her support for overturning Citizen's United and restoring the Voting Rights Act. She also did not wear a hat. I would have worn a hat. There was snow. It looked VERY cold.

As mentioned, Klobuchar gave her speech from some place in Minnesota called Boom Island, and I am now obsessed with the fact that there is a place called Boom Island, and very hopeful that it is adjacent to a Bang Island. On Tuesday, when speaking of Boom Island on Rachel Maddow, Klobuchar noted that the location presented many opportunities for puns, a thing everyone loves. "As in Boom Island, drop the mic," she said.

And though she did not say it in a Minnesota accent, I am hearing it one and enjoying it very much.

On Saturday, Glenn Greenwald saw a story in the New York Times about how the US is mucking around in Russia's power grid in a show of power:

In interviews over the past three months, [current and former US] officials described the previously unreported deployment of American computer code inside Russia's grid and other targets as a classified companion to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow's disinformation and hacking units around the 2018 midterm elections.

So Glenn Greenwald, being a total Glenn Greenwald, used that moment to defend his president, Donald J. Trump, because OMG it is just crazy that the liberals and the Deep State and the Rachel Maddow think Trump is some kind of puppet of Vladimir Putin, just because he constantly acts like a puppet of Vladimir Putin.

HAW HAW, LIBS OWNED! Isn't Donald Trump always saying nobody's tougher on Russia than he is? Glenn Greenwald agrees that nobody is tougher on Russia than Donald Trump, because Donald Trump says so.

As Aaron Rupar from Vox points out, this tweet from Donald Trump arrived just about eight hours later ...
