Democrats are lining up to run against Donald Trump in 2020.
Some candidates pose a more serious threat than others.
And this top Trump challenger’s campaign just went down in flames over a scandal no one saw coming.
Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar announced she was running for President.
Watch this excerpt from Amy's epic speech.
The cold didn't stop us. The snow didn't stop us. This is how we win.

Some pundits ranked her as an undercover top-tier challenger to Trump.
Fake news pundits believed that since she was a female Senator from the upper Midwest—but was not tied to the Democrats emerging identity politics and socialist movements—that she stood the best chance of prying loose the voters President Trump flipped in 2016.
But Klobuchar’s campaign imploded before it even started.
Days before her scheduled kickoff event in Minnesota, Klobuchar was hit with allegations of physically and verbally abusing her staff.
Buzzfeed news reported on several late night and early morning emails that Klobuchar fired off to her staff ripping their work and berating them for supposed errors:
In the emails seen by BuzzFeed, often sent between 1 and 4 in the morning, Klobuchar regularly berated employees, often in all capital letters, over minor mistakes, misunderstandings, and misplaced commas. Klobuchar, in the emails, which were mostly sent over the past few years, referred to her staff’s work as “the worst in … years,” and “the worst in my life.”
Buzzfeed news reported that Klobuchar allegedly threw a binder at a staffer and that even a misplaced comma or the wrong paper clips could set Klobuchar off:
Anything could set her temper off, they said, and it was often unpredictable. Among the things that staffers said had prompted outbursts from Klobuchar: minor grammar mistakes, the use of the word “community” in press releases, forgetting to pack the proper coat in her suitcase, failing to charge her iPad, and using staples.
“Two months later, that changes, and she’s really pissed about paper clips,” said the second former staffer.
Opposition research hits have already dominated the early stages of the Democrat Presidential primary campaign.
Klobuchar is not the only victim.
Elizabeth Warren raced to apologize for claiming to be Native American on an application to become a member of the State Bar of Texas.
Warren even sheepishly admitted that it probably wouldn’t be the only document to turn up where she falsely claimed to be Native American in order to advance her career.
As of now, the Democrat Presidential field is still wide open.
Up to 20 candidates may run.
Campaigns jockeying for position in the polls will savage each other with leaks about past scandals.
This bloodbath will only benefit Donald Trump.
Whoever emerges from the Democrat field will have spent months fending off negative headlines about past misconduct or misdeeds.
Republicans witnessed this first hand in 2012.
A succession of establishment candidates spent months tearing each other to pieces because they could not unite the conservative grassroots.
That led to a battered RINO Mitt Romney losing to Barack Obama.
Will the Democrat Presidential nominee face the same fate in 2020?
