It's ok. We never identified him as a Democrat either. Good riddance. https://t.co/ie3QUwxoBU

Everybody on social media needed a little treat, some jamoke to abuse, after this long week…
I gotta say that launching a third party makes perfect sense for Andrew Yang; he's more than qualified to do so.
Yang's been losing elections as a media curiosity that nobody takes too seriously for years now, which provides him with all the experience he needs. pic.twitter.com/Og9w1awFIl

"Andrew Yang is starting a 3rd party…"
me: huh interesting
"…that coincides with the release of his new book."
me: and there it is

this is the only time i will say this, but comparing yang's vanity party to no labels is wildly unfair to no labels https://t.co/TO5JUUHnsK

yeah I was inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt as 'kind of dumb but well meaning,' but the last year or so has definitely scrapped that

Andrew Yang will guarantee everyone in his new party a universal basic income paid in BotCoin… which is like BitCoin but doesn’t actually exist — but totally could exist if you join the Yang Gang something something Tesla Entrepreneur Crypto. https://t.co/jK63pahPnV

I assume Yang’s been prepping this for a while — note the date on the NYTimes beat-sweetner:
This report on Yang's business background shows him to be, surprisingly enough, a well-meaning, good-natured dilettante who's failed or quit every difficult task after law school. https://t.co/r5F9zjgy6d

Note I am NOT saying any of those candidates participated in or was aware of Russian support. Bernie was briefed on it in iirc March. But somehow Yang got a lot of consistent support & it didn’t fit obviously in to a Dem primary constituency.
