And what would you say to the former members of Trumps National Security team who publicly state on National TV that the Biden Ukrainian dossier is true, but while under oath admit that very little of it is true

And what about the Republican congressional candidate, ( a former member of Trumps National Security Team) who goes on Morning Joe and claims she saw evidence with her own Two eyes of the Biden’s colluding with Ukraine, yet under oath admits she saw no such evidence.

How many more of these are there going to be?

Just post the actual thing you're on about and be done with it.

"Today I’m identifying houses of worship - churches, synagogues and mosques - as essential places that provide essential services," Trump said during a hastily arranged press conference Friday. He said if governors don't abide by his request, he will “override" them.

Someone is getting notions about the extent of his power.

‘If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black’

Poorly worded, to say the least!

joe needs to put the shades back on and head to the basement again.
The problem with voting for joe and he has said it himself is he is only a seat filler and his Vice President will be running the country in a matter of months or a year after the election.

Biden is a gaffe machine. Thankfully they're mostly relatively harmless, either word salad a la GW Bush or dinosaur flashbacks to another time.

I remember there being quite a few nerves about how he'd handle Palin in their debate in 2008, but he managed to pull it off without sticking his foot in it.

I honestly don't remember anything about him and Ryan in 2012.

This time out... we'll see.

Like I've said here before, the lockdown has actually been kind to him. He'll have to start venturing out soon, at least into the media.

He demolished Ryan in the debate and then gave a rousing finale at the DNC convention (while the Republicans finale was like wtf is this old guy speaking to an empty chair for-cringeworthy$

The thing is, from the evidence we've seen with our own two eyes, it's very possible that Trump genuinely does want a hell of a lot of people to die - the evidence of his entire life proves that he loves inflicting pain on other people, and his regime is full of end times cultists.
I wasn't wrong.

Hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug Donald Trump is taking to prevent Covid-19, has increased deaths in patients treated with it in hospitals around the world, a study has shown.

This study was by Columbia University. Trump has now called Columbia University a “liberal, disgraceful institution” because some of its scholars came to a conclusion he doesn’t like.

Aspiring dictators always turn uncomfortable truths into questions of motive on the part of those who voice them.

Today he’s basically accusing Joe Scarborough of murdering an intern twenty years ago.

Hope the GOP is proud.

Let's just call this for what it is. He's deliberately inciting his cultists to go and murder Scarborough. Trump has been connected to the mafia for decades so he uses mafia tactics against people he doesn't like. Physical threats, intimidation the constant spectre of violence and the flaunting of lawlessness are the core of Trump's tactics. The classic hallmarks of fascism.

And given the piss weak treatment he gets in most of the US media, it works.

He’s working so hard, I’m glad you don’t begrudge him a little down time

Yep. It's hard work watching TV and tweeting all day. No wonder he looked so bored in every meeting. He'd rather be out on the course.
