Does anyone else think it seems just a little bit strange that Trump cancels the Repub Convention because having all those people in one large location is too dangerous....

But sending your children back to school is OK....

I'll believe this is real when I can go to Trumpstore.com and buy a tie, shirt, or trinket that says "Made in the USA"

You are welcome

https://www.trumpstore.com/collections/collections-made-in-america

For what - that's only 20% of all the merchandise on there - all the other stuff is made overseas - you really fell for the scam...

'll believe this is real when I can go to Trumpstore.com and buy a tie, shirt, or trinket that says "Made in the USA" instead of "Made In China"...

You and another poster have been going on forever about an NBC article that found some of the trinkets in Trumps souvenir shop are made in China (and Indonesia, and Vietnam, etc.). Do you ever take a step back to realize what a ridiculous accusation that is? Trumps trinkets are hardly a major industry, and if you think he is micromanaging every procurement decision on his webshop you are phantasizing. And whatever tarrifs apply to Chinese imports apply to his hats or keyholders too, and are passed on to you, if you want to buy a Trump hat.

And you and all the other Trump supporters can't admit you are being played;

Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel went on a shopping spree on the official TrumpStore.com, and found a slew of products made in other countries.

*A white golf hat was made in China, while a Trump mug was made in Thailand. A shoe bag and duffel bag were made in China. A toddler bib he ordered was made in Peru. A Trump collector medallion was made in China. Kimmel also said that two products he ordered — a pet bandanna and a gold block — did not have a country of origin listed on the product or its materials, something that is illegal.

Trump is laughing at all of you - while you buy is Chinese-made goods...

The dog is wagging it's tail big-time - what have Trump and his business partner Xi cooked up?

Maybe a fake "diplomatic war" to try to divert attention from hundreds of Americans dying of COVID each day?

Well, now we know who the protesters are who are out on the streets in Portland...

The Portland Mayor, who opposes these federal troops, went to the area yesterday and while trying to give a speech, was shouted down, called a Nazi, and otherwise insulted....

But he allows fascists to overrun the city?

Well, these fascists do have guns and are in camo uniforms - what's he supposed to do, ask for federal help? That just means Trump will send more...

Then the mob moved out and the Mayor was tear-gassed by the federal troops...

They didn’t move out, they were chased out.

OK, the secret police chased out the far-right anarchists - whatever you say...

Hmmmm.... I wonder who that mob was?

Conservatives don’t live In Portland, so that narrows it down....

Maybe, but they're easily bussed in...

Remember when he had the armed, far-right, pro-Trump gangs violently roaming through our city government buildings?

Looks like they've moved to Portland...

Wrong, No rational conservative would be caught dead in a city where they know they could be sent to the hospital for just airing an opinion that’s politically different from these anarchists.

You mean carted off to a secret location by the Feds? Yep, that's definitely a risk....

Well, after thinking about it, maybe there is method to Trump madness in botching and bungling his COVID response....

I mean, he's desperate to say he's completed just one of his campaign promises - Hillary isn't in jail, the wall ain't built, Obamacare wasn't repealed and replaced, the deficit isn't at "zero", North Korea hasn't given up its nukes, unemployment is at its highest in decades, etc., etc...

So, i guess he wants to tell his base, "I've sealed our borders with Canada and Mexico"....which is really Canada and Mexico sealing their borders with us because of our world-leading COVID rates....

But hey, his supporters won't care about that small distinction...its keeping them "furriners" out...

And in their view, it only cost the lives of 146K Americans (to date)....

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's outrage over a Republican lawmaker’s verbal assault broadened into an extraordinary moment on the House floor Thursday as she and other Democrats assailed a sexist culture of “accepting violence and violent language against women” whose adherents include President Donald Trump.

What? Trump and Repubs Neanderthals regarding women?

Posted in: Trump not ready to commit to election results if he loses See in context

As for building the wall, the Democrats have been obstructive in allowing funding for that, using the tired sophistry of claiming racism as a motive for doing so. And the Dems intentionally misrepresent Trump's meaning about getting Mexico to pay for it. What he meant was stopping people illegally entering the US and sending money back to Mexico, and use the money that would otherwise stay inside the US to fund construction.

Who had the House, Senate, and White House from 2016-18? Why wasn't it done then? And as for misrepresenting Trump, what a joke. Maybe you should re-read his statement; "Mexico will pay for the wall, mark my words, mark my words". OK, words marked - have they paid?

And Trump, for all his faults and bluster, is the only Western leader with the guts to stand up to China. Would you prefer Obama-style appeasement? Partly because of this, China is now facing more active resistance around the world for their nefarious behaviour.

How? By being business partners with them and giving them millions of dollars in contracts? Or as Bolton said, maybe by getting on his knees and pleading with Xi for help with his failing campaign?

Take off those orange-colored glasses...

A man holds a sign outside the Supreme Court - FOLLOW THE MONEY

Exactly. Where does your contributions to Black Lives Matter go? Democratic Party groups.

Well, we know where lots of that government bailout money that was supposed to go to small business and those unemployed went to...

MAJOR DONORS to President Donald Trump’s presidential reelection campaign have won coveted loans from the Paycheck Protection Program, the new government effort to provide a lifeline to small businesses under duress because of the coronavirus pandemic. The largest known recipient of small business rescue money has been a set of luxury hotels run by Archie Bennett and his son Monty Bennett. The pair have obtained over $59 million in PPP funds for Ashford Hospitality Trust and Braemar Hotels & Resorts, holding companies used to own and manage a range of hotels, including the Ritz-Carlton in St. Thomas. The father and son are also megadonors who have given nearly half a million dollars to Trump since 2016 and over $1.3 million to GOP politicians and groups in recent years.

Instead of focusing on serving the American people the Democrats are still focused on bring down Trump.

The 132K Americans that are dead wish President Trump had been focusing on protecting them instead of on statues, the Confederate Flag and fake nooses...

*James Dodson during an interview Friday with Boston’s WBUR described meeting Donald Trump in 2014 and being invited to play golf at the Trump National Golf Club Charlotte. He said asked Donald Trump how he was paying for his courses, and the now-president “sort of tossed off that he had access to $100 million,” Dodson said in the interview. Dodson said he then questioned Eric Trump, who was along for the day. "I said, 'Eric, who’s funding? I know no banks — because of the recession, the Great Recession — have touched a golf course. "And this is what he said. He said, 'Well, we don’t rely on American banks. *We have all the funding we need out of Russia.'

Some Trump supporters view wearing a mask as a purely partisan political issue, not a medical safety and hygiene measure. They call those who wear a mask "Anti-American"...

Yes, if you want to help protect your family, your co-workers, your fellow American citizens from the virus, you are somehow "Anti-American"....

Using their argument, if you wear seat belts, you're also Anti-American...

Which, according to latest statistics, is 85.9% of all Americans...

Posted in: Supreme Court orders release of Trump records but they may stay hidden for now See in context

The nation's top court ruled 7-2 against Trump in a case brought by Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance, a Democrat who is seeking eight years of the president's financial records in connection with an alleged "hush money" payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

Both of the conservative justices appointed by Trump -- Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- joined Chief Justice John Roberts in rejecting the sweeping claim by Trump's attorneys that the president enjoyed absolute immunity.

This will cause Trump supporters brains to lock - Trump's two appointees; Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, voted against him. Just like all the rest, I guess they'll be soon labeled "wackos and backstabbers"...

We'll soon see those tax returns with the Deutsche Bank loans that are merely Russian oligarch funneled money - just as Don Jr and Eric admitted in 2014; "We get all the money we need from Russia"...

In Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, which were among the first states to reopen commerce in May, retail foot traffic now lags levels elsewhere, data firm Unacast said.

Want to know what these four states have in common? Each has a Repub Governor and opened early at Trump's urging... Result: Massive surges in infections and deaths, and more shutdowns harming the economy...due to their negligence.

More than 60,000 new COVID-19 infections were reported on Wednesday, the greatest single-day tally of cases by any country since the virus emerged late last year in China. U.S. deaths rose by more than 900 for the second straight day.

Five months we've been at war with the virus, and we now have the largest single day number of infections to date - that's LOSING the war...

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called the rising cases a blip, downplayed the record increase in deaths and told residents not to be afraid.

"Don't be afraid" - Sure Governor DeSantis - due to your incompetence the virus is surging across Florida - up over 1,000%! You're supposed to protect your citizens, not kill them...

More infections - more people dying - and your President wants you to sacrifice your children by sending them back to school...

And we know how that worked out for all those Trump supporters that showed up for his Tulsa rally...

Ask Trump and those that attended his rallies in Arizona and Tulsa - maybe the 8 staffers and 2 Secret Service Agents...and Don Jr's girlfriend...

Community - I want the virus to recede so we can open businesses again and employees can return to work...

We don’t need masks to do this, we can practice safe social distancing. They do it on Japanese TV all the time.

I suggest you find medical advice other than a Japanese quiz show...

If you're too selfish to wear a mask, or you have been manipulated to think of it as some political statement, you're a Moron...

You are a moron if you think Fauci is the know it all, be all, the Alpha and Omega when it comes to infectious diseases, he is not, he is a mere mortal with flaws like the rest of us.
