In this case, I counted 28 cuts in this 2 minute video. 28. In something this short, *maybe* you do 5-6 cuts max." It does have the feel of an Eisenstein production. From PM, The View hosts worry Biden might 'flub' on debate stage against Trump.

That's what bothers me most about Nikki, all the wrong people support her. 

Politico hears No Labels ‘talking with several exceptional leaders,’ national co-chair says, "unfazed by Joe Manchin’s decision not to run for president." Capt. Ed, "Manchin really stiffed these guys just to get himself some PR. It's almost March, and Manchin wasted a lot of their time playing around on whether he wanted to run. There is almost no chance of recruiting someone at this late stage with any competitive weight. It's now fully a stunt."

Both sides of the political divide deeply distrust the other; Democrats (claim to and often do) believe that Donald Trump and the MAGA movement are dangerous authoritarians who, if allowed to take power, will undo the political order that has reigned in the US since the end of the Cold War. The technocratic elite theory of government suits them just fine, and they don't want it to change. 

MAGA Republicans (and many just plain Republicans) believe that Democrats are so certain that they deserve to rule over a liberal internationalist order that they are willing to tear up the Constitution, rig (if not outright steal) elections, sic the Justice system after their political enemies, and manipulate the economy to benefit only themselves. Hell, that's what I think, and I am a member of the same social class.

Hopefully things have improved regarding protection of child actors, but ... Hollywood has a long history of such abuse."

  1. Trump will win the votes and the election but he won't be the president. The socialist elite will not let that happen.
