Trump's bamboozlement continues, aided by racist robo-calls

Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, the jarvanka of Roger Stones tried a new scam to suppress votes with a robocall in major cities to misinform Black voters. The Trumpian bamboozle is strong with them. Trump had an average audience of 21.6 million viewers Thursday. Biden’s final total was 24.6 million viewers. One of the saddest…

Trump continues to grift his donors while contributing nothing to his own campaign

Remember when Donald Trump tried to convince us he’d be uncorruptible because he was financing his own campaign? Hoo-boy, that was a good one. I didn’t believe him, of course, but apparently some walnut-brained yokels with conspicuously more animal carcasses on their walls than diplomas did. And here we are. One uber-corrupt administration later, Donald…

Sorting machines being taken from post offices! Sabotage continues …

NPR's Noel King interviewed the Iowa Postal Workers Union President, Kimberly Karol. I urge you to read the entire transcript. (It’s not long.) She has been at the USPS for over 30 years, yet she has never seen anything like this. Louis DeJoy, a Trump flunky, was appointed as postmaster general. He has numerous conflicts of interests…

Trump lied, people died as his carnage continues

Trump tweeted before he went to bed, with more nonsense and no plan. How damn ignorant can you be? If we open up schools that will be the trigger for a second wave. Just one case spreads it to hundreds in each school. Who bring it home to their parents and grandparents. We are going…

Trump is fundraising in Texas as he continues to lose in Electoral College polling

Remember that his visit to a Texas oil-rig makes it an “official” trip. He’s whining about Fox News coverage, among other things. His fundraising shtick will have the usual things, although there likely will be some idiocy leaking from the event. Today’s meme is that “Democrats will abolish the suburbs”. The Economist’s polling model continues to find…

Trump continues to lose the suburbs

Trump is losing the sprawl vote as he doubles down on empty threats, demanding schools reopen even as he has little actual authority. There is slippage even as Trump ads threaten the loss of police, since most people understand that police do need to change how they operate, even in the age of “Karens”. x…

Tens of thousands could come…

Trump knew about #RussiaBounty, and the truth continues to emerge

Now more evidence emerges in the #RussiaBounty scandal and Trump simply looks to be even more negligent. He was briefed multiple times over the past year. Look for more distractions Tuesday, as multiple agencies engage in CYA statements. x Fact–Obama does not read his intelligence briefings nor does he get briefed in person by the…

qualified immunity: Trump's unhingery continues in COVID first wave because facial shotgun blast

Angry that Dick Cheney’s cardiologist called Trump’s Tulsa rally “criminal endangerment”, Trump cleverly references Cheney’s gun accident, probably because he associates John Bolton with the Bush administration. These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or…
