    It will be in the minds of the millions of the unemployed, furloughed, and financially beaten Americans when they go cast their votes - especially for Republican senators.

    I don't take responsibility at all.

    I think it's 100% he has it. They knew in the morning hope hicks was positive. They knew trump had contact with her after she was tested, he still went out to do a fundraiser, then at night he claims he was finally tested? The timeline doesn't add up. I think he was quick tested earlier in the day, it came back positive, he went to fundraise anyways while they did blood lab testing, and that finally came back to confirm the positive result.

    This part in bold from the above article.

    Trump confirmed that he and the first lady were tested after Hicks’ diagnosis. “I just went out for a test. It’ll come back later, I guess. The first lady also, because we spend a lot of time with Hope.” He added of Hicks, “When soldiers and law enforcement comes up to her, you know, she wants to treat them great. Not say, ‘stay away, I can't get near you.’It’s a very tough disease.” Hicks was reportedly quarantined on Air Force One during a flight back from Minneapolis on Wednesday after experiencing symptoms this week.
    a) if soldiers and law enforcement have higher chances of being exposed to COVID, protect them?

    b) ties nicely into the notion that he finds people disgusting so he goes nowhere near them on a good day of the week.

    Biden should lean heavily into point a. Law and Order President but isn’t protecting our officers or servicemen and women from COVID.

    I think the Senate under Mitch McConnell is a fucking disgrace, is what I think. Because the reason it "100% isn't going to pass the Senate" isn't because it's a liberal bill or anything like that, it's because Mitch McConnell refuses to bring any bills from the House to the Senate floor at all. Moreover, on this issue in particular he has wholly abdicated responsibility by telling them that he'll pass a bill if they work it out with the White House, otherwise he won't even consider it.

    I’m progressive but Carole Cadwalladr annoys the shit out of me with some of her ‘hot takes’. Good writer, but sometimes forgets context. That aside, what she’s said doesn’t apply because Boris is unfortunately VERY popular amongst Tories, who form a much larger portion of the U.K. population than non-GOPers do in the US. The average voter is an apathetic Tory voter in the U.K. Different situation entirely. Doesn’t apply.

    That's my view on it, your final sentence. What's the point of them formulating a bill in the senate and sending it over to the house to get shot down by the democrats? They need to do the work with the white house first. Don't get me wrong, there are shitheads on all sides of this situation. From the last few days of my random flipping the mainstream channels this morning, it seems like there are a few immigration issues the house wants addressed, and the house wants more money on some things, and the white house isn't willing to capitulate. The time for arguing over numbers is over. Give the fuckers their blank check and let's get these people their paychecks. My friend and I were talking yesterday (a former airlines worker) that she dodged a bullet getting out of the industry last year, because she'd probably have lost her job yesterday. I know one thing moderates and undecideds are not going to take, and it is yet another bunch of furloughed workers thanks to republicans suddenly deciding they are conservative all over again.

    Oh, and McConnel and Schumer need to be in on those talks too. The last several months they've both basically been happy to lay their hats on the stand and let the other part of their legislative branch deal with the negotiations. If that Revenge of the Nerds lookin dude from the white house needs convincing on something, I'd sure as hell love to see a united congress asking for the same fucking thing.

    Question

    So word in the UK is trump and his wife have caught covid.

    And when he went the hospital earlier in the year, my mum thought he looked like he had a mini stroke, apparently she was right and he has had a small stroke.

    In the June elections, there were a little over 600 seats. They had around 40 percent of the vote on their own right. So they were amazingly successful.
    The nazis were infact democratically elected to the German parliament with one of the largest vote shares ever recorded by a German political party, that alone should tell you how dangerous democracy can be.

    Looks like Skroe might've been right about Trump getting his own Mubarak moment. Then again given what a shitshow 2020's been he probably gave it to Biden who will die, while he recovers and claims it was a mix of hydroxychloroquine and bleach that did it.

    Rona is crazy infectious, more infectious than flu, trump and Biden did share a stage for the debate, yea the distanced but thats no where near a 100% guarantee trump hasn't passed it to a bunch in the room especially with his shouting and balling.

    There's actually a non 0 liklihood that both candidates could be dead before the election.

    I just saw Dr. Ronny Jackson (of "Trump might live to be 200 years old" infamy) on Fox News say that while Trump is older, he doesn't have any other health conditions that put him at risk. Apparently obesity is not a thing to the good doctor.

    He went on to say that over 99% of people in Trump's age range who get COVID do just fine and most of them are symptomatic.

    Is there a way his medical license can be revoked for purposely spreading blatant bullshit lies about literal life-and-death matters?

    The Ripple Effect.

    So they are saying that of course since this administration is a bunch of idiots, that the contacts with SCOTUS nominee Amy Barrett, to perhaps Mitch McConnell. Sadly I believe McConnell with the contact of White House members probably wears a mask. He know they are all idiots in the WH so when he has contact probably takes precautions.

    Amy Barrett would be interesting if she needs to quarantine or actually gets Covid. Perhaps a delay in nomination? Oh who am I kidding. McConnell would pass her corpse.

    No, Trump dying just makes him a martyr, even if its Corona.
    There is a lost of justice to be exacted, the world is not done with Donald Trump.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    The hope is he lives but has massive long term complications, rendering him unfit for office. It'll debunk the 'no aftermath of COVID' hoax.
