I answers for the pandemic.
Took the great economy inherited and drove it into the ground just like his businesses.
No second term agenda beyond “MAGA”.
This is the death rattle of a decrepit and destitute campaign.

The Washington Examiner is a joke of a paper with participant rather than scientific polling.
And it doesn’t have to add up to 100 as there remain a small number of undecideds. This is basic math.
Deflections aside, in the only scientific poll, Joe won by 14 and across all demos.
and in the focus group of 11 undecideds in NC, 7 are now ready to vote Biden, 0 for Trump, 4 still undecided.
Joe won, is on glide path to victory and no amount of whataboutism is going to change that.

Men 47-44 Biden Apologies.

Biden won women 60-35 and men 47-77. Climate change, racial equality, COVID and foreign relations as well.

Trump has no plan to fight COVID. He has no healthcare plan. He has no vision for a second term.
This election is a referendum on his incompetence. He’s losing. That’s why he brings up bs arguments.
He didn’t do anything to change the trajectory. That means he loses.

SSR Scientific poll gives it to Biden 53-39.
Joe win. It’s over. Trump’s done.
His own advisors say off the record, “It’s too late.”

The idea of making Biden into a socialist is laughable everywhere except the Faux news bubble.
For the rest of America, COVID and Trump’s utter failure are issues 1-3.

But Trump said “We’re turning the corner”....
And surly he wouldn’t be as stupid and heartless to have the SCOTUS overturn ACA and take away health care from 20 million during a pandemic whilst creating a new class o 8 million with pre-existing conditions, Could he (he absolutely could be that stupid and heartless)?
And where is that replacement plan that was coming in 2 weeks (8 weeks ago)?

Tony Bobulinski isn’t on the Ballot. Neither is Hunter Biden.
This election is a referendum on 4 years of Trump.
221k+ dead Americans in 10 months. 11 million unemployed. An economy that is about to double-dip into recession.
These are the issues. Trump has no answers.

Harry Enton, “The Wizard of odds” who knows more about political polling than all of us combined says that Hillary was never over 50% once the nominations were set. So I’ll go with him. It’s a credibility issue.
4 ( +5 / -1 )
once again you are factually inaccurate. Hillary was never above 50% in polling. All Trump had to do was pick up a majority of the 20% of undecideds.
Biden is above 50%. And the undecided clock in at around 5% or less. E.G. there is currently no path to a majority, much less 270 for Don.
On to your comment about Faux being credible because they are most popular.
As I noted yesterday, Fox has not a single award for journalism or commentary. (Fun fact: CNN won 8 Emmys this year alone for excellence in broadcast journalism.)
Clearly popularity does not equal credibility. But if it did.....
What would that say about your credibility given your consistent history of down votes?
As you brought up the issue of popularity equaling credibility, this would seem a valid topic.

Obama got the majority of those who voted in 08. trump did not. He didn’t even get a plurality.
Biden is above 50%. Trump has to peel off Biden voters because the number of undecideds, even if they all vote Trump is not enough. That’s not going to happen. Not at the National or the state level.
Took a great economy at essentially full-employment and drove it straight into the ground (just like his businesses!).
Literally handed a playbook on how to handle a pandemic and presided over the deaths of 220k (and counting) Americans by putting his head in the sand.
But I’m sure that the 11 million unemployed, the 20 million who will have their health care taken away, and the uncountable number of Americans that have lost a family member to COVID are MUCH more concerned with Biden’s demeanor....

You forgot his 6 bankruptcies 3,500+ lawsuits and the fact that his own Niece who has a PhD. in clinical Psychology, has diagnosed Trump as a narcissistic sociopath.
But I’ll give you a pass as the list of things that make Trump unqualified to be President, much less an executive in any publicly traded company is too long for most of us to remember. :)

Um, no. Joe and Barrack are there to shore up their sizable lead because they are already at 290. They can lose FL, GA, NC, IA (where they are currently winning) AND OH (where they are down by 1 pt.) and STILL WIN.
Trump, on the other hand, must win all 5, which isn’t going to happen, AND pick off ANOTHER 20 EC votes.
No matter how much his conspiracy-infested rubes scream and rant, Trump is heading for the compost pile of history.
Oh, and the Democrats are currently forecast to add 5 seats in the House and flip the Senate with a net gain of 4-6 seats.
Facts, as they say, are hard things to get around....

One of the few things this administration has done that I agree with. I would argue that a large sale of F-35 B’s that could take off and land from unprepared airstrips thus negating China’s missiles is in order.
Counter strike weapons that can hold PRC Missile sites and industrial centers at risk as well.

As a graduate of Catholic school, I can safely say that this Pope is much closer to the average Catholic than the previous Pope, the Opus Dei or the People of Praise (or whatever they all this cult).
The flock no longer accepts the infallibility of the Pope. WAY back in the mid 80’s we used to snigger in religion class when they told us the Pope could speak infallibily.
Although I’ve lost my faith I do not begrudge those that have it (and secretly hope that they’re right and I’m wrong). But for a leader to remain relevant in a modern society, that leader must take into account changes in society and adjust how dogma is applied. Otherwise we’d still be stoning wives and sacrificing children.
This Pope recognizes this and is positioned to drag the Church into modernity much better than any Pope in my life time.

This was an absolute slash and burn take down of the biggest failure in US history expertly getting under Trump’s tissue-thin skin and damaging his fragile ego while simply pointing out that his “administration” (his entire life) is a testament to failure.
Trump is frightened of Obama because he knows that Obama is everything he aspires to be (popular, competent, respected) but fails at.

Faux news has (checks notes) ZERO journalism awards for reporting or commentary. No pulitzers, No Murrow’s no peabodies. Zip Zilch Nada Nil.
They are a PR arm masquerading as a news org. Their journalists regularly worry that they are stuck because they have Faux on their CV.
As for the bank, it was not listed on the required disclosure forms and as we know Trump refuses to release the taxes because they’re “under audit” (yeah, right....) So by definition, it was secret as in unknown.
Which bank? We don’t know? How much money flowed through? We don’t know. Did the Chinese leverage it to control Trump? We don’t know.
But yeah, let’s continue to obsess over an obvious Russian plant 2 weeks from the election that Trump is losing. Out of cash Out of ideas. Out of time. Go to the scandal.

My guess is that this will be EVERY bit as wild and scandalous ass “spy gate” or the “unmasking” controversies were. In other words nothing. A wet fart in a hurricane.

By all means, let’s have a discussion about adult children profiting on their father’s name and political power starting with the Trump children.....
1 ( +5 / -4 )
quick search of every reputable news organization web site reveals that this is a non-story because it is patently ridiculous.
It is the last death rattle of a broken, bankrupt campaign without ideas or a plan. Only his conspiracy addled rubes give it any credence.
3 ( +7 / -4 )
There’s a reason this story isn’t getting any traction, it’s patently ridiculous. The chain of custody includes Bannon (Indicted felon) and Rudy (IC warned the WH he was being manipulated by Russia to no avail).
This story is so dodgy that Fox wouldn’t even touch it. Think about that: Burisma, Benghazi Killory Fox wouldn’t touch this story. It went out without the byline of the reporter because he didn’t think it was true.
Trump’s rube of a DNI, who has zero credibility may have said this isn’t a disinformation campaign, but 50 IC professionals with decades of service put their names on paper saying this has all the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation operation. Any sentient being recognizes it for the farce it is.
You know what IS going to gain traction? Trump had a Chinese bank account not disclosed on his disclosure forms. Which bank? He won’t say? How much moved through it? We don’t know. Why didn’t he disclose it? We don’t know that either, but I’ll bet he will get “a few” questions about it from now till election day.
And eventually the truth will come out.

Because of course he did.
What self-respecting DOJ prosecutor would agree to take the case? He or she would be committing career suicide.
Some people just want to watch the world burn...

Trump is really going to talk about adult Children profiting off their father’s name and position?
7 ( +10 / -3 )
Show me the evidence that it’s true. The burden of proof rests on the accuser.
As for reasons why it is likely false.....
The Chain of custody
No other news org can confirm.
The FBI has not been granted access to the raw data which would enable them to examine IPs, digital distortion, etc.
Oh, and the fact that Trump is flailing and desperate.

On a separate note, when you are down to arguing about were the commercials edited out or not, you’re losing the argument. Bigly.

On the subject(s) of moderators and topics, those were chosen and agreed to by both sides before the debates began. Complaining about them now is a pitiful excuse to deflect Trump’s inevitably poor performance in advance.
The mute button came about because Trump would not, could not follow the rules that his own team agreed to in advance.
Just imagine a situation in which you are such a petulant man-child that other people have to cut off your mike because you cannot follow agreed norms of behavior?

And while we’re on the topic of campaign finance, I thought that Trump was an Uber-rich billionaire who could self-finance? So why isn’t he literally putting his money where his mouth is?
I can think of 2 reasons. A) He’s not really a billionaire and he doesn’t have much free cash flow. What little he does have is devoted to debt maintainence and/or expected future legal fees and settlements. B) He knows he’s going to lose and doesn’t want to throw his own money down a black hole.
To be fair, it could be both.
I’m going with “both.”
