AFTER THE STORM- November 15 2020

HOW LONG TILL WE CAN SAY GOODBYE TO THE MOST LOATHESOME PRESIDENT IN HISTORY??

I could write many paragraphs about his ignorance, his venality and his utter unfitness for office. But many others have preceded me. They are more eloquent. Like many others I live for the day I see his fat ass waddling out if the White House. ever day he delays is just another embaressment for the country.

Speaking of Trump post-WH: Jim Acosta said Friday that after January 20th, Trump can go “back to being another crackpot on the internet…” (Mediaite)

And if you wondered how Trump makes staffing decisions, read HERE.

HERE”S SOMETHING MORE PLEASANT!I Have you been watching The News With Shepherd Smith on CNBC? It comes at 4pm and 11pm and is a very fast -paced review of the day’s headlines, very entertaining, and Shep, late of Fox news, is just as cute as a bug. Highly recommended.

Take the day off. You deserve it.

TRUMPWATCH Nov 12 2020

From POLITICO: SPOTTED: Treasury Secretary STEVEN MNUCHIN and Sen. MARK WARNER (D-Va.) dining at Xiquet in Glover Park on Wednesday night. The menu is HERE.

And also from POLITICO: THERE IS NO STRATEGY! … WAPO’S ASHLEY PARKER and PHIL RUCKER: “Trump insists he’ll win, but aides say he has no real plan to overturn results and talks of 2024 run”: “[T]he president has no clear endgame to actually win the election — and, in an indication he may be starting to come to terms with his loss, he is talking privately about running again in 2024. … Trump has been spending his days largely on the phone, calling advisers, allies and friends. The president has been ‘trying to find people who will give him good news,’ one adviser said.”

And as for Trump’s post-election plans, check THIS out. I can hardly wait.

Veteran’s Day Edition

From CNN: President Trump made the claim an untold number of times on the campaign trail: That the media would miraculously stop covering the coronavirus the day after the election. “That’s all I hear about,” Trump said at one October rally. “Turn on television, ‘Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid.’ A plane goes down, 500 people dead, they don’t talk about it. ‘Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid.’ By the way, on November 4, you won’t hear about it anymore.

What an awful thing to say – suggesting that news outlets were dishonestly hyping the pandemic to ruin his chances at re-election. This was obviously not true and journalists at the time called Trump out for the patently false claim. But he kept on repeating it anyway. At rallies. On Twitter. To anyone who would listen.

Now, one week after Election Day, the proof is visible for anyone to see. The coronavirus continues to receive large volumes of coverage, with headlines and network news segments highlighting the dangerous rise in cases and hospitalizations taking place from shore to shore. Tuesday marked the highest number of cases reported in the US with 131,970. It was also the eighth consecutive day of more than 100,000 cases in the US.

ENJOY YOUIR DAY and thank you veterans for your service!

Take a day off! We all deserve it.

AFTER THE STORM – Trump on the way out

From POLITICO: SO WHAT WILL MCCONNELL DO with TRUMP and his unsubstantiated claims that the election has been stolen from him? MCCONNELL and the Senate GOP will give TRUMP room to make his case, but don’t expect that will last long. MCCONNELL is loyal to TRUMP, but he’s a realist.

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: “Mr. Trump hasn’t conceded and claims to have won the election if only legal votes are counted. But he’ll have to overturn Mr. Biden’s leads in some combination of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada, and that’s a very long shot. The deadlines for vote counting and official validation are fixed in law and inexorable. Mr. Trump isn’t obliged to concede or congratulate his opponent if he loses, though it would be better for the country and his own legacy if he did.”

And here’s the WAPO: Read it HERE.

And Darrel Issa was returned to Congress. Wh the hell voted for him?

BEVMO and its 166 stores was just sold for $350M.

SO NOW THE QUESTION IS; HOW MUCH DAMAGE WILL TRUMP DO IN THE NEXT 72 DAYS and how much of a jackass will he be in front of the whole world?
