    Can confirm the "patriotic support." He went from.... Well, Boris, to being someone people suddenly loved because he was "doing his best even with the virus" and so on.

    Meanwhile, we keep getting confusing messaging about coronavirus rules that leaves the country worse off because nobody knows wtf they're meant to be doing.

    That was the rallying around the flag effect... Because he catched it very early (Early april).The only example that is meaningful here, is the one of Bolsonaro, that i've just posted here. And jair didnt get that bump, he just got it because of handouts and it wasnt very significsnt (just about 3%).

    WH officials knew Thursday morning Hope Hicks tested positive THURSDAY MORNING.

    How the hell was Trump not tested and allowed to go to NJ for a closed door fundraiser on Thursday afternoon.

    1) The UK is effectively a unicameral parliamentary state with no checks and balances, the US is not.
    2) For aforementioned reason, there has never been an election on Johnson in the same vein as there will be on Trump.
    3) Biden isn't Corbyn.
    4) No Brexit.

    Want something to pick you up after that read, though?

    Incubation period is 2-14 days, means you can go 10+ days before testing positive. every single person on that list needs 14 day quarantine. every single person in contact with every single person on that list needs to 14 day quarantine.

    Wouldn't it be something if Trump infected Biden at the debate.

    Huh. First Bob Murray and now this? I knew stores put up their Christmas decorations way too early, but I didn't realize Santa would deliver presents this early too!

    Makes me happy, my anxiety dropped significantly after seeing that list, especially since i'm not on twitter.

    Trump said they'd both been tested. And the podiums were far apart. And they never came close to each other. That seems unlikely.

    I'm sure Weta Workshop can CGI someone else to stab Frodo with the spear, don't worry.

    I mean, on the flipside, Trump is so polarizing most people made up their minds about him a long time ago.

    I picture it to be similar to his reaction when he face palmed while laughing when Trump said something about the deep state in one of those coronavirus task force meetings.

    Yeah, just today I posted something ridiculous like 98% of people were unchanged by the debates.

    Not impossible, but unlikely.

    I doubt they hang around backstage with a few beers afterwards.

    This is OANN right now.



    There are zero front-page stories about Trump testing positive. There are some great pictures of his mostly maskless rally, however.

    And if Trump says Biden flashed the white supremacy sign, do I get to say "that's Pence giving the Nazi salute"?

    Probably not. But you would know, with your adamant support of Trump.

    So...I'm guess that that "cost of illegal immigration" graphic is what they chose to put up because they couldn't possibly acknowledge that covid is a thing? Or is that just a staple of the website? I wouldn't be surprised either way.

    I have no idea. I've never been there before and I'm never going back. Top story on the fucking planet is Trump infected with a lethal disease and they don't mention it once? Even Trump tweeted about it, so there goes that excuse.

    And I don't want to hear "well it's night, they don't update". Bullshit. "It was night" is the excuse a one-man team can give. OANN is supposed to be a media outlet with more than one person.

    And the only ads on the site were Trump and OANN itself.
