Wednesday News: Purple Heart Recipients Condemn Trump’s “Flippant” Comments; Kaine Tells Trump “Virginia Is Not for Haters”


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Wednesday, August 3. Also, if you’re an Arlington Democrat, don’t forget to vote tonight – at the regular ACDC meeting at the NRECA building in Ballston -for Matt Weinstein for the 8th CD Democratic committee. Go Matt!

  • Video: According to this guy, a Trump supporter in Ashburn shouted “hate WILL win” before being shouted down by anti-Trump protesters chanting “Hate WON’T win!” Hard to hear, though…what do you think?


  • Quizzical

    Trump is becoming the freak show. I wonder how they are going to try to turn this around? Perhaps Vladimir has some ideas.

  • Video: General Hayden warns strongly against Donald Trump as a menace to the world. Morning Joe talks about Trump asking three times in an hour about why we can’t use our nuclear weapons. Hayden, by the way, is a retired United States Air Force four-star general and former Director of the National Security Agency, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In short, he knows what he’s talking about. Trump is an extreme danger to America and the world and must be stopped. Also, Republicans – Paul Ryan, Barbara Comstock, Ed Gillespie, etc. – need to disavow him NOW.


  • Video: More idiocy and #FAIL from Trump’s clueless, bizarre spokeswoman


  • Video: Jonathan Karl says senior GOP officials are “actively exploring what would happen if Trump dropped out”


    • Quizzical

      This is nature’s way of telling you that your Presidential Campaign is not going well.

  • CrowdPAC (yeah, I had never heard of them either!) starts an effort to draft Khizr Khan to run in Virginia’s 58th House of Delegates district. Only one problem: this district is overwhelmingly “red” (e.g., EW Jackson won it by 12 points over Ralph Northam in 2013; Gillespie beat Warner by 18 points in 2014), so….just no.


  • Congratulations to Matt Weinstein on his election to the Virginia 8th CD Dem Committee
