Trump Was the Big Winner of Last Night's Debate, Says NBC's Jonathan Allen

A thousand twitter-addict cucks cried out all at once, and then were silenced.

President Donald Trump was the big winner of the first 2020 Democratic debate.

The Republican commander in chief, who was on his way to an economic summit in Osaka, Japan, emerged from the scrap largely unscathed -- barely mentioned at all -- even though he is a uniquely antagonizing and energizing force for Democratic voters.

At the same time, the 10 candidates who were in the room here at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts often competed against one another to appeal to narrow subsets of the primary season electorate. Their jockeying, punctuated by efforts to outflank each other to the political left and conduct a middebate Spanish-speaking contest, could alienate swing voters important to the party's chances against Trump in November 2020.

Alienate swing voters? How? Just because Julian Castro (who doesn't speak Spanish) called for illegal border entry to be decriminalized, citing "section 1325" to make himself sound informed (spoiler: all section 1325 of the Immigration and Naturalization Act does is make it a crime to illegally cross the border, so why not just say that?), and other Democrats either endorsed this position or tap-danced around it?

And just because Julian Castro called for tax-payer paid abortions for "trans females," which are also known as "men," who therefore cannot get pregnant, no matter how strong their feelings on the issue?

Castro's answer was triggered by NBC News' Lester Holt, who asked, "Secretary Castro, this one is for you. All of you on stage support a woman's right to an abortion. You all support some version of a government health care option. Would your plan cover abortion, Mr. Secretary?"

Castro answered, "Yes, it would. I don't believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman -- or let's also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn't mean they shouldn't have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion."

Now that a Democrat candidate has called for tax-payer funded abortions for men, will any other Democrat candidate be asked about it? Compare to Mitt Romney being asked about outlawing birth control, despite never having whispered a word about that, and despite the fact that Rick Santorum, who opined that we shouldn't tell people that birth control is "okay," himself never called for outlawing it?

Note that not a single Democrat rushed to tell the non-Spanish-speaking race-appropriating gringo Julian Castro that he was silly to call for taxpayer paid abortions to people who could, at most, be subject to a hysterical pregnancy, also known as a non-pregnancy.

This is alienating of swing voters? Just because Democrats forgot they were seeking the job of President of the United States and rather than stadium announcer for the Mexico City futbol team for about half an hour?

As I noted last night, the panel was divided between Democrats seeking the mantle of El Mas Woke and those fearful of the Woke Twitter Legions and offering up pablum that sounded mucho woke without firmly committing them to a position that Trump would absolutely crucify them for.

But they all tried to sound lo mas Woke posible. Some were just mas ciudadosa than los otros.

Ay yi yi! Mi porcebita cabeza! Es mal!

That says that "hasta la vicotria siempre" (Always be victorious!) is Fidel Castro's motto, repeated thousands (or millions) of times by Castro.

Mi gente! Levantate, mi gente!
