After Tulsi Gabbard qualified for the next Democratic primary debate on Sunday by getting at least one delegate in the Super Tuesday voting last week, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) un-democratically moved the goal posts and changed the rules to prevent her from being on the debate stage and participating in the "democratic process" for selecting a presidential candidate for that political party . The televised debate is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, the 15th.
Sponsored by the Univision and CNN television networks, the presentation originally was going to feature moderators Jorge Ramos of Univision (remember him from when the immigration issue emerged?), and Dana Bash and Jake Tapper of CNN. It is scheduled to be from 8 to 10 p.m., Eastern time .
Initially set to be in Arizona with some questions from the audience, the DNC announced that the location is being moved to the CNN studio in Washington D.C., with no live audience –
"Out of an abundance of caution and in order to reduce cross-country travel, all parties have decided that the best path forward is to hold Sunday’s debate at CNN’s studio in Washington, D.C., with no live audience."
And, further: "… Ramos was in proximity with someone who was in direct contact with a person that tested positive for coronavirus. Both Mr. Ramos and the person he was in contact with are in good health and symptom free." However, he is being replaced by Ilia Calderon of Univision.
Jorge Ramos was in "proximity" to someone who was in "direct contact" with a person who "tested positive" for coronavirus. This looks like he was "two hops" and two degrees of separation away. For that, he gets roped into the mess, just like through a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrant!
