Democrats go on the offensive ahead of New Hampshire primary – live | US news

Democrats criticize Trump’s budget proposal

Different Strokes for different folks

Donald Trump has been busy on Twitter this morning, most recently claiming “the Fake News” will not cover “the big crowds forming for my New Hampshire Rally tonight”. That rally is at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, and yesterday the Union-Leader, at least, covered supporters lining up early.

As it happens, in the Democratic primary the Union-Leader has endorsed Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota senator enjoying a mini-surge after Friday’s debate and targeting third place over Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

Also as it happens, among other primary-themed events in New Hampshire on Monday night there will be the eye-catching combination of The Strokes and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – she of the Evita comparisons and probably imaginary primary challenge to New York senator Chuck Schumer that Trump seems so taken by – turning out for Bernie Sanders in Durham.

This is what Strokes lead singer Julian Casablancas had to say on the subject:

We are honoured to be associated with such a dedicated, diligent, & trustworthy patriot – and fellow native New Yorker! As the only truly non-corporate candidate, Bernie Sanders represents our only chance to overthrow corporate power and help return America to democracy. This is why we support him.

The “Get Out the Vote Concert Rally” will take place on, wait for it, the Last Nite before the primary, and it should not be Hard to Explain why this may be seen as a coup for the Sanders campaign.

Other forced puns based on Strokes songs the Guardian doesn’t know, the Guardian only having bought the first album ages ago and lost interest since then, should be sent to the Guardian in a stamped addressed envelope, where they will be promptly burned.
