Is it too early in the morning for the people waging the disinformation campaign on reality?

Deaths are up 33% from two weeks ago.

"What the hell is the matter with these guys"? Biden.

Biden at work already, while Trump is hanging out on the golf course, denying, obstructing, dividing, and refusing! What a jerk!

Biden has laid out a reasonable plan for rescuing the economy from Trump and his incompetent handling of COVID.

House Democrats want to assist Biden with an appropriately sized stimulus package whilst Senate Republicans want to start obstructing Biden immediately even though it means harming Main Street.

Trump had given up on the virus months ago. He tired of the virus without realising the virus does not tire of us. Didn't attend a White House virus meeting in 5 months.What's more Trump is blocking Biden from getting vital information about the virus. This type of Trump action could cause more to die. Biden has a major problem dealing with the pandemic.

12 ( +18 / -6 )

coronavirus pandemic, which is spiking across the nation and threatens to cause further damage just as the U.S. economy was rebounding from the initial surge of cases.

This is Covid45, it's on Trump and his admin. Trump's neglected his duties and has shown he cares zip about the problems he's failed to deal with and the general population is suffering from. So why is he having others fight to keep his job. More corruption ahead?

Out of control inequality is one of the great challenges facing America today. Politicians of all stripes should realize that this, regardless of party. Even Florida, which voted decisively for the Trump this year, passed a $15 minimum wage. Hopefully this is only the start.

I would love to see Trump thrown under the proverbial bus. Biden should pull all stops and prosecute to the fullest extent.

And Trump,the biggest loser ever,decides to prevent a smooth transition with his withholding of co-operation.Shame on him for bringing democracy into disrepute and an even bigger one on the dummies who voted for this pathetic cretin.Lock him up.

In my opinion, the spread of the virus depends a lot on the society itself. You can’t blame the government solely if the country has lots of ignorant misbehaving people.

the Trump administration provided the USA with not 1 but TWO different vaccines.

How did they do this? How did the trump administration cause these vaccines to come about?

lmao "Trump needs a break". From what? Golfing? Trump and his supporters in the Q Cucks Klan have gone from "he's bursting with energy" to "he lost on purpose so he could chill in Hawaii for four years because he's so tired".

Bannon being charged doesn't make Trump a bad person and nor does it make Joe and Hunter good people.

So Bannon is arrested and indicted for swindling Trump supporters out of money for "the wall" and you think he's not a "bad person"? OK..

The "smears" may not have won the election, but doesn't make them any less true or relevant to what is to come.

Thanks for admitting they were smears....and that they failed....that's progress...

Trump crime family - who have been investigated up the wazoo but not been charged with anything...

Who is "Individual-1"? Who runs the Trump Org currently under investigation? Who's the President's personal lawyer that is under investigation for illegally representing a foreign government and campaign finance fraud? Where are both the President's former campaign manager and his former "fixer" sitting now?

The Bidens have made a fortune from being Bidens and close to Joe's political power.

Who's richer, Trump or Biden? Who ran a sham University? Who bankrupted six companies? Who was President that took the budget deficit to its highest in history? Who still has his clothing line made in Chinese sweatshop factories, cheating US workers out of jobs?

trump meanwhile wants donations for his lawsuits.

And if you contribute less than 8K, it goes into trump's pockets.

Trying to make money out of people's miseries is trump'd hallmark!!!!

When trailer parks are empty due to supporters of Trump congregating on mass as a seething mass of contagens, Trump sits alone caring nothing for those who die, his feelings are hurt. Biden has one hell of a job ahead. Luckily the new Vice President can do what Trump refuses to do.

These past few weeks has seen the Biden camp with more ideas than the man-child has ever had during his whole 4-year term. All people ever got from him was You'll see our healthcare plan in two week's time, we have a beautiful plan, we're going to do this soon, we're going to do that soon, terrific, beautiful, I'll tell you about it later, we don't have any specifics at the moment, it's going to get better, it will disappear before you know it, blah blah blah.

trump has given up on the country, he is happy golfing and doing nothing.

He said Biden would forget about the virus after Nov 4.

Well Biden hasn't but trump sure has!!!

But he got that vaccine going, Joe give credit to the President and give him some palm.

I’ll give him credit when you admit he spent 8-9 months mask shaming and holding super spreader events.

Good thing the Trump administration provided the USA with not 1 but TWO different vaccines.

The vaccines were obviously a thing that would have been researched and made by science and scientists, whether Trump was president or not. Had Trump listened to scientists in the first place, the effect of the Coronavirus would have obviously been lessened in the most COVID ravaged nation in the world, under his watch.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

250000 dead and rapidly climbing. Over 100000 new infections per DAY. While some readers on here think it is acceptable, I can assure you that the world is mortified.

The damage that trump has done to America will take at least a generation to remedy. The damage to the fabric of social cohesion will stay with America for a very long time. If this was a murder case trump would be charged with being an accessory.

I truly feel sorry for all the intelligent people who can see through the foul web of lies and insults from trump, and hope that they can see a civilised way forward out of the chaos

@Slickdrifter

Didn't attend a White House virus meeting in 5 months.

Absolutely fabricated and false the above comment a total fabrication

Not according to reports.

"Admiral Brett Giroir, a physician who is part of the White House coronavirus task force, confirmed a report on Sunday that President Trump has not attended a meeting with the group in several months, but said he is "not concerned” about Trump’s absence."

"Dr. Anthony Fauci, a fellow member of the task force, also told CNN on Sunday that Trump has not been to a COVID-19 meeting in "several months."

Excited for the Republicans to change their minds from "Covid deaths and infections are no big deal and are probably fake" to "Covid deaths are the worst thing to have ever happened, why won't Biden do something about it?" at 12:01pm on January 20, 2021.

trump remember Covid only when he wants to claim credit for the vaccine , otherwise it doesn't exist .

Meanwhile his witch doctor wants people to rise up against Covid prevention.

The only ones making money under trump are the lawyers, and even they are too disgusted to take his money.

When lawyers dont want anything to do with trump, you know it's over for him!!!!

Biden had better make a "New Deal" for Americans ( a prophylactic preventative shot of socialism-lite) to revive the economy and eradicate Trumpynomics that have only aggravated the inequalities of American society, ironically selling his supporters down the river.

Also important is to send a message in 2021 to the Republicans that they must be held responsible for the plague of Trumpism with all its toxic consequences for the mental health of the nation by breaking precedent with America's coddling and cossetting of its ex-presidents and their accomplices that has traditionally spared them from indictment and incarceration for their crimes. Trump and his cohorts must never be allowed to run for public office again after they have "paid their debt to society".

Finally, as an antidote to the wacko conspiracy theories redolent of the "Witches of Salem" that have visibly made shocking inroads into the minds of a not inconsiderable number of the 72 million and despite the objection that "you can't fix stupid", a great investment must be made in education and science to eradicate the ignorance that made Trump's "Presidency of the Absurd" possible.

There is a sense of security and relief that Biden is President elect. His movement forward, with true purpose and protocol, shows all how unbelievably ridiculous the past 4 years has been under Trump, where lack of a clear vision and no true clarity in a plan or execution thereof has been a source of unease and downright fear for Americans and the world.

I can only hope Trump stops his juvenile lack of courtesy and tradition of helping the United States transition.

As Obama has said, the presidency is a temporary job. You want to leave the office with the country better off than when you entered. Trump has failed in the worst 4 year term I've ever seen and America wants him out.

One would hope Trump would want to leave on a positive note, with even a bit of dignity and grace, but I don't see it happening. He won't congratulate Biden and invite him to the White House because Trump is the sorest of losers.

TRUMP didn't do anything ....he ensured 255K people died unnecessarily.... that's his greatest achievement in his presidency.

As long as the GOP keeps the Senate

What a stupid system you've got there. I thought the Japanese vote value disparity in elections was bad but it's nothing compared to the US Senate, with each State getting two Senators regardless of the population size, and then actually letting these people wield some serious power, e.g. to approve Supreme Court nominations. I don't know how anyone can defend it either, especially not with that tired, tedious old "it's not the east and west coasts that run the country" line because when Democrats win a majority it's voters in large red States like Texas who get shafted.

I love how the leftist's here blame Trump for the Virus

No-one did this.

and how he is doing nothing to about it. or did not enough about it.

Yes, that is true.

You are going to see just how much pressure Biden will get on implementing locks down.

OK. Given the huge spread of Covid throughout the US, I think lockdowns are appropriate.

He has already rolled back the idea.

I think this is a bad move from Biden. Then again, I didn't have high hopes for him.

Operation Warp Speed produced to high effective vaccines.

Here are the facts.

https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/explaining-operation-warp-speed/index.html

Lets all just go far left here and yeah, Trump did nothing.

I agree we should all go far left. That is the correct political position.

((((Didn't attend a White House virus meeting in 5 months.))))

Absolutely fabricated and false the above comment a total fabrication!!!!

It's true, actually.

If anyone thinks Donald J. Trump does not love our country. I would say to you. You know nothing of the man.

I do. Everyone can read his actions and draw correct conclusions, if they have the wit to do so. This is how, when it was revealed that Trump called US troops who died in France in WW1 "suckers", and that he didn't attend the centenary commemoration of WW1 because he didn't respect them, I was able to call it way back when it happened, in 2018. You can read my posts. I was right.

Disagree with him. Despise him if you may which we have seen a barrage of divide and hate for four years and from day 1.

OK.

Under Biden this what you have took forward if he levels the playing field economically.

1. Social problems: There are a lot of social frictions attributed to inequality like more people participating in riots. It also results in an unfair allocation of opportunities to citizens.

2. Inherited wealth: Inherited wealth promote unfairness to individuals and makes some people lazy than others since they can easily satisfy all their needs with less effort.

3. Increased crime rates: A research carried shows economic unequal societies have high crime rates. Inequalities act as an incentive to commit a crime in order to gain more.

4. Unemployment: High levels of unemployment are contributed by market failure due to inefficient distribution of resources in the free market. This increase levels of poverty in the society.

5. High prices to consumers: In monopoly industries, the bargaining power of suppliers is high resulting in increased prices for the consumers. This results in an unfair distribution of income between suppliers and consumers.

6. Health effects: Income inequality among citizens limits access to health care facilities and healthy food. Adequate health facilities are unavailable to the poor population in the society and this leads to a decrease in health.

7. Increase political inequality: In societies where wealth distribution is concentrated with a few people, the political powers are always in favor of those few wealthy people. This results in a lot of corruption and oppression of the poor.

8. Increased constraints: There are many factors that hold people back like the income, race, poor background and others affecting their success.1. Social problems: There are a lot of social frictions attributed to inequality like more people participating in riots. It also results in an unfair allocation of opportunities to citizens.

Uh, you've listed the problems of economic inequality. I don't think Biden will go anywhere near enough to solving them, but you're listing these problems as if getting rid of them would be bad. These problems, cause by economic inequality, need to be eliminated.

“Once we shut down the virus and deliver economic relief to workers and businesses, then we can start to build back better than before," Biden said during remarks in Wilmington, Delaware.

Trump must have put out some kind of ad hiring Republicans to cook up as many outlandish conspiracy theories they can. The funny thing is, all of his court cases are based on rumors, hearsay within hearsay, and innuendos. That's why the courts keep throwing them out at a record pace. No facts whatsoever.

In any case, Trump's fixation on this, and not on his job is destroying America. He needs to help in the transition of power, or there could be dire consequences concerning the security of America. And to all those Republicans who gave a bankrupt con-man, who never had any political experience a chance to hold the office of POTUS in Trump, they should give Biden a chance to hold the office of POTUS as well. Like Trump, this is Biden's first shot at being the leader of America, and I'm sure he will do a better job at it.

New York federal prosecutors on Thursday charged President Donald Trump's former adviser Steve Bannon and three others with defrauding donors of hundreds of thousands of dollars as part of a fundraising campaign purportedly aimed at supporting Trump's border wall.

Mr. Raffensperger, in an interview with The Washington Post, said that Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was among those Republicans seeking to challenge legally cast absentee ballots with the aim of helping Mr. Trump take the lead in a state in which he is losing by several thousand votes. According to Mr. Raffensperger, Mr. Graham asked about possible ways that ballots could be disqualified, including whether the secretary of state could reject all mail-oinballots in counties that had a high number of signature mismatches on absentee ballots.

> “That’s ridiculous,” said Mr. Graham, who said that his conversation with Mr. Raffensperger covered questions about Georgia’s system of using signatures to verify the identity of voters who use absentee ballots. “I thought it was a good conversation,” Mr. Graham said. “I’m surprised to hear he characterized it that way.”

Mr. Raffensperger, a lifelong Republican, was stung last week when Georgia’s senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both ardent Trump supporters, called for Mr. Raffensperger’s resignation, accusing him of mismanagement and calling the election he oversaw “an embarrassment.”

senator Graham is “surprised” a lifelong Georgia Republican “characterized it that way.”

id guess if it was bad enough to make a Republican Secretary of State watching his state flip blue go to the Washington Post it was probably worse than he’s saying.

yeah, “stop the steal” indeed.

This I'm actually inclined to agree with, though it's written a little conspiracy theory-ish. But in reality, the divide between the super rich and the working class is getting so wide that the super rich become like a ruling class, operating under a different set of rules and reality than the rest of us, only made possible off the efforts of the working man.
