Democrats Plan 2020 Slogan Based On ‘Make America Great Again’

Published

WASHINGTON — Democrats are planning to roll out a new slogan for their 2020 presidential campaign inspired by the “Make America Great Again” slogan employed by President Donald Trump.

The Democratic National Committee Unity Commission met Saturday morning in a bottom-floor conference room at Washington’s ritzy Marriott Wardman Park hotel to discuss strategies to recover from their 2016 electoral defeat. The top idea likely to be put into practice is a new “donor network,” similar to the Democracy Alliance donor network, that exclusively funds state parties.

But the most popular idea clearly came from a formal presentation by former Maryland Democratic Party chairwoman Yvette Lewis, who modeled her ideas on Trump’s strategies against Hillary Clinton.

“We need a theme. Donald Trump had Make America Great Again. It didn’t mean anything, but it was something that people latched onto,” Lewis said.

For Democrats, the theme will be “One America,” Lewis said.

“We need people to believe in America again,” Lewis said. “We, the Democrats, want people to believe in America again.”

The idea was roundly praised, as well as Lewis’ criticism that “We use too many big words.” Lewis said that Democrats should change their language “So they don’t think we are talking down to them.”

The DNC Unity Commission, featuring former Bernie Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver alongside Clinton campaign officials, convened Friday and Saturday to lay out new rule-making ideas and political strategies for the party.

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
