SHORT RIBS AND RANDOM THOUGHTS, September 6, 2020

The cream of The Fat Man’s interview with Wolf Blitzer is as follows :

Barr said that he does not view Russia as the greatest threat to US elections, instead pointing the finger at China. When Blitzer asked him to elaborate, Barr said he wouldn’t discuss classified intelligence…

> Barr said he doesn’t have evidence foreign powers are trying to rig the election with fake ballots, but said he’s basing the concern “on logic…”

>> Barr initially appeared to support Trump’s claim that black-clad rioters with gear were assembled on a plane by saying the DOJ has “received multiple reports” of such activity. When pressed on the specifics of the claim Trump shared, however, he said he didn’t “know what the President was specifically referring to…”

WaPo’s Greg Miller summarized the interview like this: “The Attorney General on CNN says he doesn’t know whether it’s illegal to vote twice (it is), that Jacob Blake was armed (he wasn’t), and that counterfeit ballots from another country are real threat (no evidence).” You can watch part one here and part two here

Trump was so long-winded at his Thursday evening rally that even Fox News cut away after 40+ minutes. He’s “probably pretty close to wrapping things up there,” Martha MacCallum said, seemingly justifying Fox’s choice to stop live coverage. But Trump kept talking for another 50 minutes, and numerous commenters on Twitter and Facebook lodged complaints about Fox cutting away.

HERE’S that Atlantic article that everyone’s talking about right HERE. You can thank me later. This is consistent with Trump’s well-documented contempt for the military. If you want to now what he’s REALLY done for the military, try THIS.

And enjoy your day off!
