Who assigned you as the authority on what 'cancel culture' means?

Yes, thanks, you guys nailed it. :)

The editor in chief of The Atlantic says that there will almost certainly be more reporting on comments Trump has made about people in the military

This, or something like it, is a likely explanation imo

I don't know why Kelly, Dunford and Mattis are bothering to be anonymous. There's really no one other than Kelly who could be the source of what Trump said while the two were standing over Kelly's son's grave. I get the general principal of the military staying out of politics but this election is a knife fight for our democracy. There's going to be no democracy to defend if our side loses.

I admire their technique of a steady drip of these stories leading up to the election though. It's something we already know but there's value on keeping Trump's disloyalty to the people he commands front and center in our minds.

ETA: I'll add McMaster to the above list.

Exactly the message I've been suggesting for some time now.

The question is whether enough people will look after the far larger number of jobs that have been lost because of Covid

All this retweeting suggests to me there might be a new batch of fake Twitter accounts out there.

This one is a classic fake account, though I could be wrong.

Another press conference going on right now. I watch a minute or two, then realized I'd get all the pertinent information later on during the news. Otherwise it's just a bunch of rants with very little new being said.

Who is telling us that our cities will be in flames and rioting and looting will happen under "Biden's America" when it's happening NOW? Who is telling us massive voter fraud will happen with mail in voting? Who is telling suburban women that low-income housing will “destroy your neighborhood and your American Dream.”?

If you think that it's the liberals who are driven by fear, then you live in an alternate universe.

Trump's 'press conference' was almost painful to watch. The man just spent the entire time ranting, raving and airing his usual grievances. He claimed the report in The Atlantic was entirely made and 'a hoax' (naturally). He attacked McCain, Biden, Obama, Clinton, Dems, went on and on about being spied on again, China, claimed he's against 'cancel culture' even though he engages in it on twitter, etc. He is obviously not in a good place mentally. He is running very scared.

Its still hard to understand the disconnect and the way the media lets Trump get away with it.

Person X is hired to fill some position in the Trump administration.

Person X is fired for disagreeing with Trump/Breaking the law/expressing their true opinion of Trump.

Person X is then endlessly referred to by Trump as a loser/idiot/wacko.

At some point it would be nice if a reporter had the balls to ask Trump why he keeps getting fooled by these wackos into hiring them in the first place?

Trump: DeJoy should be removed if it 'can be proven that he did something wrong'

https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...en-that-he-did

Is this a setup for a firing, or a boast that man can't be touched?

But there are tapes, many of them. And there are many Tweets.

If the Democrats are smart, they'll make dozens of ads with Trump's unkept promises, his egging on violence, and his divisiveness,

I don't think the Veterans are better off, show that. And show Trump with his gold toilets claiming how good the stock market is, next to the unemployed and people not surviving. Show all those closed for good businesses.

Show those two people in scrubs holding off Trump supporters.

This stuff is marketing 101. It writes itself.

Yes, Trump holds a press conference and the media come running. I do believe they stopped showing the segment live, however, telling the TV audience they would report it if anything new comes up.

I hope they remember that and don't fall into the show every minute of Trump rut.

Someone did. He just went quiet and then (IIRC) moved on to the next question.

It's another instance to Trump using A/B testing:

depending on the support/backlash DeJoy gets in coming weeks, Trump will keep or fire him.

Someone did; he ignored the question (per people who saw the clip; I didn't). Don't know about balls. It was a woman.

In Colorado, we take double voting seriously and refer all suspected cases for legal enforcement. If it makes sense, I will include @realDonaldTrump in the referral for prosecution. He may not have presidential immunity anymore depending on the election.

:rolleyes:

If by standing up for them, Trump means deregulating their employers in ways that have caused a significant increase of outright worker deaths, before getting to everything else, then sure. That's not before even beginning to touch things on the COVID front, for that matter.
