Brilliant commentary from Al Franken:

There are People Who Say That There are People Who Say

May 28, 2020

There are people who say that there are people who say that Joe Scarborough murdered a staffer with whom he was having an affair.

Donald Trump puts children in cages.

There are people who say that there are people who say that Ted Cruz’s father was a part of the plot to assassinate President Kennedy.

Donald Trump ran a foundation that was a criminal enterprise.

There are people who say that there are people who say that climate change was a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.

Donald Trump denied paying off two women he had sex with to keep them quiet about having sex with him even though he paid them off to keep them quiet about having sex with him.

There are people who say that there are people who say that Jewish financier George Soros paid for caravans of refugees from Guatemala that were infiltrated with ISIS terrorists, intent on the mass murder of Americans.

Donald Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people.”

There are people who say that there are people who say that Trump really won the popular vote in 2016 because three million undocumented immigrants voted illegally for Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump refused to condemn the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia after he had ordered the murder and dismemberment of a Washington Post journalist.

There are people who say that there are people who say that Barack Obama is a Muslim who was born in Kenya.

Donald Trump gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh.

There are people who say that there are people who say that the coronavirus will magically disappear when it warms up. In April. Of 2020.

Donald Trump’s delay in acting on Covid-19 has resulted in the unnecessary deaths of tens of thousands of Americans and the collapse of our economy.

There are people who say that they can’t figure out which is worse. The crazy stuff he makes up. Or the crazy stuff he does that you can’t believe isn’t made up.

Anyway. That’s what people say.

Franken's essay not really arguable. I just liked what he had to say.

I am guessing he will run again and I think he will win. And speaking of Minnesota, I think Minneapolis' mayor is fantastic. I can definitely see him on a national stage. He young 38 years old and a former community organizer.
