Secret Service agents that went to Arizona or were from Arizona that helped to set up Pence's meeting came down with the virus. They had to postpone the meeting a day to bring in healthy Secret Service agents.
James Carville is saying he thinks Trump will withdraw prior to the election "If" that happens I wonder who the GOP would run.
the thought crossed my mind that maybe it is more important to him to cause some deadly chaos than it is for him to risk losing. if he drops out last minute, he will no doubt incite the white power nuts to try and avenge his loss at attempting to prevent the lawless from having a say. the lawless in his mind being all the black community who will not take it anymore.
it's a stretch but nothing would surprise me with that thing anymore.
I stole this from the levity thread on the NewGDT Proboard:
If Trump were Captain of Titanic:
"There isn't any iceberg. There was an iceberg but it's in a totally different ocean. The iceberg is in this ocean but it will melt very soon. There is an iceberg but we didn't hit the iceberg. We hit the iceberg, but the damage will be repaired very shortly. The iceberg is a Chinese iceberg. We are taking on water but every passenger who wants a lifeboat can get a lifeboat, and they are beautiful lifeboats. Look, passengers need to ask nicely for the lifeboats if they want them. We don't have any lifeboats, we're not lifeboat distributors. Passengers should have planned for icebergs and brought their own lifeboats. I really don't think we need that many lifeboats. We have lifeboats and they're supposed to be our lifeboats, not the passengers' lifeboats. The lifeboats were left on shore by the last captain of this ship. Nobody could have foreseen the iceberg. "
bbbearsmom , there is a lot of funny stuff on there.
Maybe if everyone ignored you-know-who, he would lose interest and quit. Hey, a girl can dream...
One more thing, a bunch of Trump-lovers are posting on twitter a lengthy list of awards that he supposedly received down through the years, accompanied by statements like "this was Trump before the media got a hold of him." Some are humanitarian awards. Being a curious type, I searched for the source of the list and whataya know, it's from the Trump Foundation. Maybe I can interest these people in a lovely bridge spanning the East River.
Lani, I don't get that either. We lost interest a long time ago. If he's on TV we change the channel. We can't stand his screaming all the time, his ugly face, his air accordion, and his lies, lies, and more lies. He does not even belong in politics and he's in the Oval Office? He never has a single thing to say to the nation. He behaves like he's on a stage in Vegas.
What could possibly go wrong with that? It frightens me that he has so many dumb and dumber supporters.
If a Democrat behaved the way this jerk does, spoke the way he does, did any of the vile things he does, the Far Right would be having a hissy fit what am!
Don't mess with older people. The older we get the less "life in prison" is a deterrent.
A little background. In one of our U.S. Congressional district the incumbent (Dem) is running for U.S. Senate to fill the seat of the Democratic Senator who is retiring. The district is pretty blue, and it would be unlikely the new Congresswoman (yes it will be a woman) wouldn't be a Democrat. In the paper today there was a column about the Republican candidate who was campaigning on the Plaza in Santa Fe (a VERY Blue area) without wearing a mask. Santa Fe is the capitol of New Mexico. The governor has mandated masks, and as of July 1 there is a fine. So, this candidate was cited, and sounds like she needs to go to court. So, GOOD! Her comment was it was "unconstitutional" since there is no requirement in the Constitution to wear a mask. She also said she'd only wear a mask if she was in the hospital (despite there being a photo of her with her children, all of them wearing masks). She also refused to give her age. And she thinks the people in Santa Fe are going to vote for her? Hahahahahahaha
Not wearing a mask is like driving drunk. We have laws, wear a seat belt, can't fire a gun in city limits, gotta have insurance to drive, helmet laws for bikes and motorcycles. What is wrong with these people? If they weren't going to infect others, I'd say let them have at it and party on, and make 'em sign a waiver not to seek medical attention when they get sick.
