Democrats are once again eating their own as the infighting among GOP members heats up as Trump increasingly seems like he’ll run again, DeSantis is positioning himself to be the nominee if he doesn’t, and Conservative, Inc. oligarchs are losing their minds over the idea of the bad orange man once again holding the ostensible reins of power.
Even fewer Democrats than Brandon think Cackling Kamala is remotely tolerable. Newsom has rallied the pro-abortion crowd to his cause by placing pro-abortion billboards with Bible verses throughout red states. The climate change debate has also heightened tensions between moderate Manchin types and extreme AOC types.
Democrat Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia slammed Rep. Nancy Pelosi for what she called a failure of House leadership over Pelosi’s alleged dismantling of a restriction on legislator stock trading. Pelosi is a well-known day trader and the Speaker of the House.

Spanberger criticized Pelosi for changing her mind about expanding the STOCK Act, a 2012 statute that forbids politicians from trading stocks using insider knowledge.
Pelosi, who has been charged with breaking the law as a result of her husband Paul Pelosi’s suspiciously timed stock sales, first opposed strengthening the STOCK Act but later changed her mind as a result of the uproar that opposition had caused.
