Bernie Sanders called for donations to his 2020 presidential campaign in an Instagram post featuring video of one of his own supporters rushing the stage at a Donald Trump rally in 2016.

The video posted by Sanders’ account is a spoof of original footage of a harrowing incident in which left-wing activist Thomas DiMassimo, 22, attempted to charge candidate Trump during an event in Dayton, Ohio, just days after DiMassimo had reportedly stated his desire to become a “martyr” on social media.

Want to really scare Trump? Help us show the strength of our campaign to defeat him—chip in before our fundraising deadline at midnight at the link in bio. #bernie2020,” Sanders wrote in the video caption.

Sanders’ copy of the video depicts the socialist senator in a well-known meme context, seated in a chair as he mimics the ‘monster’ he portrays for his grandchildren at Halloween.

At the time of the 2016 incident, Secret Service quickly surrounded a Trump amid fears of a possible assassination attempt after DiMassimo jumped a barrier and attempted to mount the speaking platform.

“Thank you for the warning,” Trump said after the threat was neutralized. “I was ready for him, but it’s much easier if the cops do it, don’t we agree?”

DiMassimo would go on to tell the Dayton Daily News that he had no regrets about his actions, implying that more should have followed his example.

“I think a better question to ask all of the people who consider themselves more on the left side of issues… and are anti-Trump (is) ‘Do I stand by all that I didn’t do?’” DiMassimo said. “Because maybe if there were, like, 10 more (people like me) in every city, willing to rush through that barrier, we wouldn’t have to talk about (Trump’s) first two months.”

“So that people in their mind could think, wow, someone’s willing to hurt this man for the things he’s saying and the things he’s doing,” DiMassimo continued. “Not that I would. But I think that’s healthy (for people to consider).”

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says that a ‘glass of water’ could be elected in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) district if it ran as a Democrat.

The House Speaker seemed to downplay the young congresswoman’s success in toppling longtime incumbent Joe Crowley in what was regarded by many as one of the biggest upsets in the 2018 midterm elections.

“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi told an audience at the London School of Economics and Political Science. “She’s a wonderful member of Congress, I think all of our colleagues would attest.”

“But those are districts that are solidly Democratic,” Pelosi said while picking up a water glass from the table. “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”

Pelosi clarified that she didn’t mean to “diminish” the “exuberance and personality” of Ocasio-Cortez and her contemporaries, such as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — all first-term congresswomen who represent an insurgency of radical socialists within the party.

Pelosi’s remarks came immediately following an interview with 60 Minutes in which she rejected the young revolutionaries as a threat to her power.

“You have these wings — AOC and her group on one side…” said host Lesley Stahl, in reference to new factions forming in the Democrat Party.

“That’s like five people,” Pelosi interjected.

And days before, in an interview with USA Today, Pelosi took a thinly-veiled shot at Ocasio-Cortez’s popularity on social media, saying, “While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have a large number of votes on the floor of the House.”

Watch as the Democrats and MSM talking heads go into a death spiral now that they know their game is up.

California Congressman Eric Swalwell has thrown his hat into the crowded 2020 Democrat presidential field and will center his campaign on gun control, including a “mandatory buyback” of all ‘assault weapons’ currently in possession of lawful firearms owners.

Swalwell stated his objectives in an interview with Esquire published to coincide with his formal campaign announcement on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday.

“I’m going to be an aspirational candidate who believes that in our lifetime we could… buyback and ban every single assault weapon,” Swalwell said. “I will be the first candidate to say that reducing gun violence has to be a top three issue.”

“Last year I wrote a bill calling for a buyback and ban on assault weapons — not just to ban future manufacturing, but to just take the 15 million that are out there and buy them back. And do what Australia did, do what New Zealand did. They’ve shown us — Australia in the 90s, New Zealand just this week — that courage in doing the right thing can protect people.”

Swalwell confirmed his intention that the “buyback” would be mandatory in an op-ed also published on Monday.

“I’m the only candidate calling for a mandatory national ban and buyback of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons,” he wrote. “It’s bold and will cost money, but it is constitutional and it rightly treats gun violence as a life-or-death matter.”

“Our children deserve better than an attempt to reduce or contain gun violence. Our goal must be to end it.”

Swalwell recently ignited a firestorm when he insinuated that the U.S. government could deploy nuclear weapons against gun owners who resist his confiscation plans.

“Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state,” tweeted Newsmax host and former NYPD officer John Cardillo with a link to an article quoting Swalwell’s call to, “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters.”

Military veteran Joe Biggs responded to Cardillo, “So basically Rep. Swalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.”

Swalwell, who was tagged in the conversation, weighed in.

“And it would be a short war my friend,” Swalwell wrote. “The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit.”

Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke told Al Sharpton he would “absolutely” sign proposed reparations legislation if elected president.

Appearing at Sharpton’s 2019 National Action Network convention this week, O’Rourke voiced his support for a bill put forth by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) which would establish a commission to study injustices against African-Americans and recommend remunerative action to rectify those societal inequities.

“Your fellow Texan, Sheila Jackson Lee, has proposed a commission to study reparations,” Sharpton said. “If that passes, and you are President of the United States, would you sign that bill?”

“Yes,” O’Rourke replied. “I had a chance to speak with, and just listen to, and learn from [social justice activist] Bryan Stevenson in Montgomery, Alabama, and learn from his work on working with the community to build a memorial to justice and to peace. He said foundational to reparations is the word ‘repair,’ and foundational to repair is the truth.”

“Until all Americans understand that civil rights are not just those victories that I began with at the outset of my comments, but the injustices that have been visited and continue to be visited on people, we will never get the change that we need to live up to the promise of this country.”

“So, absolutely, I would sign that into law,” O’Rourke concluded.

A video clip of O’Rourke’s remarks shared by NBC News has received more down votes than up votes, and top comments are dominated by viewers accusing the failed Senate candidate of “pandering” for votes.

Fellow 2020 Democrat hopefuls including former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Cory Booker have also expressed their support for Rep. Lee’s legislation, according to the Associated Press.

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton summoned her infamous fake southern accent to whip up support during a speech at Brown Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Selma, Alabama, this weekend.

Clinton was present for the 54th annual “Bloody Sunday” commemorative service at the church, where she was joined by 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

A montage of “greatest hits” compiled by Grabien Media founder Tom Elliot captures Clinton channeling her inner Southern Methodist preacher, as she proclaimed, “This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”

“Reverend Green, when those bones get up, and when that spirit is breathed into them and they start climbing out of that valley, the first place they go is to register to vote,” Clinton said. “I’ve heard Cory preach — oh yeah. Oh, Misses Sowell you know. You just get ready.”

“Between 2012 — the prior presidential election, where we still had the Voting Rights Act — and 2016, when my name was on the ballot, there were fewer voters registered in Georgia than there had been those prior four years. Think about it my friends,” Clinton said, seeming to find a new excuse for her stunning loss to President Donald Trump.

“I know that if we do our part, we can take back this country and put it back on the path that was begun and forged here in Selma 54 years ago. God bless you, Brown Chapel,” she concluded.

Clinton was presented with an International Unity Award at the Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King Unity Breakfast in Selma by former Senator Hank Sanders on Sunday, as well.

“She was elected President of the United States, and it was stolen from her,” Sanders said during the presentation. “If not for the FBI and the Russians, she’d be President right now.”

The Democrats remain unsatisfied with their success thus far in the demoralization of America and are planning to steal the 2020 election from President Trump.

Michelle Obama is likely preparing for a 2020 presidential run and could enter the race under favorable circumstances, asserts Rush Limbaugh.

The talk radio host also believes that should the former First Lady throw her hat in the ring, she would instantly overshadow other prominent hopefuls such as Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Howard Schultz.

“If Michelle Obama runs, then [it’s] ‘Kamala who?’ and ‘Joe who?’ and ‘Howard who?’ and ‘all the rest of them who?’” Limbaugh said. “I do believe that she’s thinking about it.”

“I don’t think they’ve made up their mind yet, but I think they are preparing for her to run. They’re surveying the land. They’re surveying the circumstances.”

“And if the right shoes drop and the right things happen, I think Michelle will be in there, and the proof of the pudding is by the utter denial, but all the books and all of the speeches and the all of this and the all of that…” said Limbaugh, alluding to Obama’s recently released autobiographical memoir and wildly popular publicity tour.

While Obama has repeatedly denied any intention of running for president during the 2020 cycle, many believe she could enter the race at any time and have a legitimate shot at winning.

Michelle Obama was named the “Most Admired Woman” in America in 2018 by Gallup voters, dethroning Hillary Clinton after a 17 year run at the top.

In fact, with 15% of the vote, Obama topped Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, and Melania Trump – combined.

“No other potential Democratic candidate can draw crowds like Michelle Obama can,” notes columnist Michael Snyder. “She has been selling out her national book tour while charging “as much as $597.00 to $1,435 per ticket.”  A clear effort is being made to help her step out from the long shadow of her husband, and it looks like the stage is being set for her to become the ‘reluctant hero’ that will ‘save the nation from Trump’ in 2020.”
