Tea Channels Are Feeding YouTube Feuds

Tea Channels Are Feeding YouTube FeudsIn 2016, James Charles was a high-school student in upstate New York. He was an aspiring makeup artist who’d do his friend’s faces for practice and small amounts of money, and brought a ring light to his senior photo shoot so his pictures looked perfect.Two years later, he had racked up more than 16 million subscribers on YouTube, launched his own makeup line, and become an icon in the online beauty community. He was named the first male spokesperson for CoverGirl and spent his time hobnobbing with celebrities like Kylie Jenner.

Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said that he believes President Donald Trump had “engaged in impeachable conduct.” A lawyer by training, Amash tweeted that he’d read the Mueller report carefully and conferred with others before concluding that Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.

He’s got a compelling personal story. He’s liberal enough to fit in the Democratic mainstream but not so liberal as to spook Montanans. He’s picked a central issue, campaign-finance reform, that has been a key concern for Democrats in recent years. He’s amiable and well-liked, and it’s hard to fine anyone who will say a bad word about him. He looks fantastic in a barn jacket.And yet no matter how you squint, it’s hard to imagine Steve Bullock being president, or even a presidential nominee this cycle. Part of the problem…
