AND SO IT GOES September 10, 2020

We knew he was a vile human being but did you now he was THAT vile? At his Sunday presser he tried to get a Reuters reporter to take off his mask. Unbelievable.!

And if you want more, about the Post Office try THIS.

Bernie Sanders just turned 79.

Bloomberg News reports today that Trump has discussed spending as much as $100 million of his own money on his reelection campaign: “The billionaire president has talked about the idea with multiple people, though he hasn’t yet committed to any self-funding. Though Trump personally contributed $66 million to his 2016 campaign, it would be unprecedented for an incumbent president to put his own money toward winning a second term.”

And if you want to ow what the GOP’s own election lawyer thinks, there’s THIS. Here’s a taste: “The president’s actions — urging his followers to commit an illegal act and seeking to undermine confidence in the credibility of election results — are doubly wrong. They impose an obligation on his campaign and the Republican Party to reevaluate their position in the more than 40 voting cases they’re involved in around the country.”

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!
