Breaking news:

Trump to withdraw his Supreme Court Nominee, because, come January, he will need the Obamacare to get health insurance.

Hold up there.
It is far more accurate to say “Trump claims to have tested positive.”
After all, no lie is too big for President Chucklehead.

Melania declares war on christmas in a recording made by former friend and aide, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.

Quote:
In the recordings, apparently made without her knowledge, Ms Trump can be heard saying: "I’m working like a – my ass off at Christmas stuff that you know, who gives a ******* about Christmas stuff and decoration?
She also seems to explain her "I Don't Care -- Do You?" jacket.

Quote:
"OK, and then I do it. And I say that I’m working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, ‘Ooh what about the children, that they were separated? ’ Give me a f***ing break.

“Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?”

Politically, the only thing that can safe Trump's Corona Narrative now is if Biden catches it, too.

Anyone want to bet how long it will be before we see trump tweet to complain about either people being happy he is sick, or people"politicizing" his personal illness.

The Dems should publicly send a "Get well" card. Inside, it reads "Get well and truly".

Covid definitely owes us a W. Trump dying wouldn't work off the whole tab, but it would put a dent in it.

It would almost be karmic justice for known germophobe Trump's last waking memories be getting intubated for a pandemic he personally played a massive role in spreading conspiracy theories about.

Perhaps he's just trying to get out of another debate. He has a note that reads "ekskuz Trump from debait he has the kovad China viris".

If only Donald Trump had some kind of influence over the organisations that could prosecute those ne'er do wells instead of President Biden running interference for the last 4 years. If Donald Trump is elected President he'll finally be in a position to do something about it

Poking time -

Trump blames low-income people, minorities for 'ruining' suburbia.

Quote:
“By the way, just so we can get this straight, 30 percent of the people in the suburbs are low-income people. Thirty percent of the people in the suburbs are minorities. And so we’re ruining this American dream for everybody,” Trump said.
I don't want to waste my time writing up a condemnation of the obvious here, though, so moving on.

Texas' governor has made a somewhat remarkable attempt at voter suppression.

Quote:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has issued a proclamation limiting each of the state's counties to only one mail-in ballot drop-off location for the November election.
Some consequences?

Quote:
Harris County (population nearly 5 million people) must now reduce its 11 drop-off locations to one starting on Friday.

One location for 5 million people. One location for an area that is 1,777 mi² in size.

Travis County, which includes the reliably Democratic city of Austin, must limit its four drop-off locations to one.
Yeah, that's BS.

I want him out. He is the biggest threat to American democracy since World War 2. My very country and freedom are at risk. He is doing everything he can to undermine the election illegally and immorally. He has already multiple times indicated that he simply will not accept losing. He has also made statements that encourage his followers into violence and even civil war. If you haven’t read about how the Nazis took over Germany.

Lose the election? How? Dead by COVID-19 would guarantee he is out.

IMO President Trump is merely a symptom of the problems that US democracy is facing. Without him the GOP would still be purging voter rolls, closing polling stations, introducing voter ID laws and making as difficult as possible for certain people to vote. The GOP still want a majority of the power with a minority of the popular vote and an even smaller proportion of popular support.

I don't think his replacement (i.e. Pence) would be anywhere near the order of magnitude of the problem Trump is.

As already corrected, Electoral College votes. But more so Trump and his minions are already doing whatever they can to disenfranchise likely Biden but not Trump voters. Arranging to prohibit mail in voting in Democratic states, slowing the mails if that doesn’t work, eliminating virtually all drop off boxes (as in Texas), etc. They are not even trying to hide the corruption!

In addition the Republicans are already challenging the count. Making it difficult to count the ballots and trying to implement rules that cut off the count after Election Day itself. And Trumps threatens to simply not accept a result wherein he loses, consisting both of calls to his followers to disrupt the count as “poll watchers” and attempts to rush formation of a favorable Supreme Court. All this and more to create anarchy if the count goes to Biden.

So no, the election is likely to not to go to who gets the more legitimate votes.

Again, look up to how Hitler was voted into office. And that was probably more fair than what the Republicans are implementing.

But dead is dead. I trust dead.

I sympathize with your view. I know a lovely lady who died in awful pain of Covid-1o. But as a moral compromise I will settle on wishing a quick death for him.
