The name of the anonymous author of op-eds criticizing the operation of the White House, is Former DHS chief of staff @MilesTaylorUSA ), but in the scheme of October Surprises this is a footnote. More important matters are whether one of five swing states can be won by Biden/Harris.

When Mark Meadows said those words on Sunday morning to CNN's Jake Tapper, he was stating the obvious: The Trump administration never mounted more than a halfhearted attempt to limit the spread of covid-19, and now has simply given up. Daily reporting of new cases has reached an all-time high, yet Trump flies around the country holding superspreader campaign rallies and claiming that we are somehow “rounding the turn” on the virus. What is that even supposed to mean? What could he possibly be talking about, except a turn for the worse?
There are many, many reasons Americans should vote Trump out of the White House, but perhaps the most urgent is his refusal — or perhaps his inability — to face the reality of covid-19. This election is literally a choice between life and death.
