A stark reminder that we need to keep fighting until the final bell

2 min read

Donald Trump is historically unpopular, and his own internal polling shows him well behind in a hypothetical race against Joe Biden. He’s also incompetent, flailing, a criminal, a know-nothing, a gag-inducing bag of hair and adipose, and he couldn’t win a policy debate against a whale* scrotum in Rick Perry glasses, much less Elizabeth Warren.

That said, these numbers were like a bucket of cold water when I saw them this morning. And they should remind us that we need to keep our eye on the ball:


Liasson, of course, is a veteran NPR political correspondent, and she’s seen it all, so she knows what she’s talking about.

And the truth is, we can’t take anything for granted. We’re still 17 months out from the 2020 election, and so much can and will happen — good and bad. If you thought Trump has gone full fearmonger already, just wait until his political life is on the line.

So let’s keep working, agree to support (and contribute to, if we can) our Democratic nominee, and GOTV like our lives depend on it. Because they likely do.

*Or is it “Wales”? I always get those confused.

Is Trump still singeing your sphincter? Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its breathlessly awaited sequel Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the salve you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And you can get them for less than the price of a cup of coffee … or a black-market Xanax … or five minutes of therapy. It’s time to heal, my friends. Buy now!
