    Can someone explain to me the specific objections to this?

    Just a reminder...

    Speaking of more evil from Trump.

    Trump told CBP head he'd pardon him if he were sent to jail for violating immigration law - CNNPolitics
    More evil of him harassing a member of the House.

    WE WILL NEVER FORGET! https://t.co/VxrGFRFeJM
    HOLY FUCKING SHIT, even more evil.

    wow. A new policy proposal by the Trump administration calls for the surveillance of disabled people’s social media profiles to determine the necessity of their disability benefits.
    Oh my god, this man is going for the hat trick of pure horridness today.

    Dont tell me youre shocked this administration finally got around to targeting the disabled for abuse. Id say it was only a matter of time. Remember, it was only a few weeks ago that Daffy DeVos proposed eliminating funding for Special Olympics until the monumental backlash forced Dolt45 to do an about face and go over her head to scratch that wrongheaded idea. Meanwhile, I wonder whos idea was it to spy on the disabled? Probably Kid Jackboot (Stephen Miller), it would be just like a Nazi to heap scorn upon and hate anyone whos infirm and otherwise imperfect. The Trump White House is officially the tenth level of hell.

    Here's something Bernie said that was unquestionably a good thing to say. The right thing to say.

    Ilhan Omar is a leader with strength and courage. She won't back down to Trump's racism and hate, and neither will we. The disgusting and dangerous attacks against her must end.

    The idea seems to be to punish those who vote for his enemies and/or diving the inhabitants of these cities aboard the Trump Train.

    Mind you, the fact that these are not violent boegymen and are not eligible to get public assistance even in the Sanctuary Cities means this is mostly to no avail, but I get the impression Trump does not even realize that.

    The only objection is the using of people as pawns. The mayors of those cities were polled and they all say, bring them! Our doors and hearts are open.

    Yep.

    It would have been nice to see Pelosi do something along that line instead of what she's had to say so far.

    Elizabeth Warren is also standing up for Ilhan Omar.

    The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman—and an entire group of Americans based on their religion. It's disgusting. It's shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it.

    That NYP Ilhan Omar cover was plain disgusting, yeah, and the constant targetting of her is even worse.

    I fear for her safety.

    (Good for Bernie and Warren.)

    If you can take this at face value, 100,000 of Sanders donors thus far are independents. Having that support might do just that.

    I'm not saying folks have to back Sanders. I'm just saying that figuring out a way not to tick off those supporters might make sense.

    Or, even better, finding some way for Sanders to hold onto these supporters even after the primary. Sanders has sway over them, influence over them. If Sanders immediately and without reservation throws his support behind whomever wins the Primary [Okay, yeah, I really doubt it will be him], then there is a chance his supporters might do the same.

    Put plainly, Sanders(unless he winds up being the nominee) isn't going to be the issue.

    The issue is that Sanders having that many independents chipping into his campaign doesn't really point to that Dems have made a bunch of headway with increasing support among independents.

    If you have to count on Sanders' blessing to maybe wind up with the support of some of those independents, I'd say you are already starting out five or six steps back.
