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.

WHOA THERE, it is a #HotScoop about something happening that portends the wrapping up of the Robert Mueller investigation, one that we can actually believe to a point, because of how CNN seems to have some receipts for its story. (Unlike what we always hear from reporters who shall remain nameless, like Ken Dilanian from NBC News.)

CNN is reporting that "as soon as next week," new attorney general William Barr will be announcing the "completion" of the Mueller probe and that Mueller will be sending some sort of report to Barr.

And just like that, this is you right now: WHOA IF TRUE, IS IT TRUE? IS HE JUST GOING TO LEAVE LIKE THIS? BUT WE HAVEN'T EVEN SAID GOODBYE!

And this is Robert Mueller right now: bUt We HaVeN't EvEn SaId GoOdByE!!!!!!!!

Aimee Maddonna, of Simpsonville, South Carolina, is a nice lady who wanted to take in some foster children and give them a nice home, with her, her husband and their children. Her father had been in the foster care system himself, and her parents had always brought foster children into their home as well, hoping to give those kids a better experience than he had in the system. She had hoped to continue the tradition, and went to Miracle Hill Ministries, the largest and most widely advertised foster care provider in the state, to get started. At first, Miracle Hill told her that she and her family would be a great fit for foster kids and seemed excited to have them on board.

And then they asked her what church she went to.
