News Flash: A Democrat has been found who speaks truth!

Following the first chaotic Democrat debate, longtime California politician Willie Brown declared in his Saturday column for the San Francisco Chronicle that none of the candidates can beat Trump, and that the first night’s group amounted to a “lineup of pygmies.”

“Trump must have enjoyed every moment and every answer, because he now knows he’s looking at a bunch of potential rivals who are still not ready for prime time,” he wrote.

“California Sen. Kamala Harris got all the attention for playing prosecutor in chief,” Brown said of his own ex-mistress, “but her case against former Vice President Joe Biden boiled down in some ways to a ringing call for forced school busing. It won’t be too hard for Trump to knock that one out of the park in 2020.”

As for Biden, he “did himself zero favors by telling Harris that he opposed only busing that was ordered by the federal government. It was a weird endorsement of states’ rights and local jurisdictions’ right to segregate schools. That’s the best argument he could marshal against busing little kids miles across town?” asked Brown.

Brown’s opinion resonates due not only to his intimate knowledge of a certain candidate, but his political bona fides are legit. His Chronicle by-line reads, in part:

“Two-term mayor of San Francisco, renowned speaker of the California Assembly, widely regarded as the most influential African American politician of the late twentieth century, Willie L. Brown, Jr. has been at the center of California politics, government and civic life for four decades.  His career spans the American presidency from Lyndon Johnson to George W. Bush, and he’s worked with every California governor from Pat Brown to Arnold Schwarzenegger.”

It’s the second time this year that Brown has used his column to dismiss the field of Democrats seeking to beat Trump in 2020. In February, following the President’s State of the Union address, he said that he had “yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.” He added: “They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the ‘people personality’ that our media-savvy president has mastered.”

In this weekend’s column, Brown singled out three other front runners in the cast of characters recklessly driving down the left side of the road.

Hilariously, the 85-year-old politico called out South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s reply to a question asking why there aren’t more blacks on his city’s police force.

“His response was,” Brown wrote, “’Because I couldn’t get it done.’ OK, so do better as mayor before you try to be president.”

Elizabeth Warren’s debate performance seemed to be Brown’s tepid favorite. “[Warren] was dominant against a Night One lineup of pygmies,” he said. “She might have the chops, but we can’t tell yet because the first debate was so tame.”

He was also critical of Cory Booker, saying that although he was impressed by the New Jersey senator’s delivery, he was, “not sure the content of his answers on gun control and the like made much of an impact.”
