I found it delightfully clear yesterday when I watched the video. Tucker handled it very badly.
Of course you would say that.

"What do democratic socialists believe? Democratic Socialists explicitly support communism.  Co-chair of Portland Oregon's chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, Olivia Katbi Smith tweeted:

"As a DSA chapter co-chair, I just wanna set the record straight for a minute - Communism is good."

Tucker then goes on to a mind-numbing interview with Democratic Socialist spokesman, Cornel West:



Democratic socialism is socialism.  There is no difference

Thanks!

It depends what you mean by "like."  I agree with him on some issues, disagree with him on others.  I didn't vote for him because of his anti-free trade policies.  I was disappointed in his tax cut (not broad or deep enough), signing the massive spending bill and getting us deeper in the middle east.  I was disappointed in his Kavanaugh pick, but liked Gorsuch.

I support the wall, but he's been severely disappointing building it.

Those are long running disagreements, I'm not sure how it adds up to being a Trump supporter.  I'm undecided on the next election how I'll vote other than it won't be a Democrat.

Not sure what made you specifically think I was a supporter.  Are my choices Democrat level vitriolic hatred or being a supporter?

We basically feel the same way about Trump. 

I was particularly horrified when he signed that $1.3 Trillion omnibus spending package back in March.

No matter if the wall gets built or not, Mexico is definitely NOT going to pay for it.  We Taxpayers are.

It was stupid of Trump to suggest that they would.   It was almost as bad as George H.W. Bush's "Read my lips - No new taxes!" campaign promise.

The wall is such a tiny expenditure in our budget and provides so much direct spending savings as well as security, I don't care at all who pays for it.

But I agree Trump should never have said that as it provided his enemies such a diversion.

I think we should pay for our own security anyway

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is floating a 70% tax rate.

“Once you get to the tippy-tops, on your $10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%. That doesn’t mean all $10 million dollars are taxed at an extremely high rate. But it means that as you climb up this ladder, you should be contributing more.”

How could voters elect this idiot?

Polls show that most Americans want lower taxes, more spending and a balanced budget...

That's why it's essential to not have a democratic form of government.
