    And that's what I think terrifies me. Maybe it's because it just wasn't so apparent, but up until recently I never saw either party as "fanatical." I've seen PEOPLE that were, there's always fanatics, but now it's almost like the whole fucking party is that way.

    Chelsea Clinton had the Secret Service stay at places of business she profited off!!

    Got you Trumpers!!!

    That’s as a result of when Trump’s grownup kids visited Trump properties, Trump’s firm charged the Secret Service for brokers to come back alongside. The president’s firm billed the U.S. authorities tons of, or hundreds, of {dollars} for rooms brokers used on every journey, because the company generally booked a number of rooms or a multiroom rental cottage on the property

    On this approach, Trump’s grownup kids and their households have induced the U.S. authorities to spend not less than $238,000 at Trump properties to date, in response to Secret Service data obtained by The Washington Publish.
    If my Fake headline was true, how many Trumpkins would be replying and and filibustering this thread. Too bad they don't care that a conman and criminal let his children and himself steal money from the taxpayers.

    Thanks for being so hateful and so bigoted that you elected a criminal who steals our taxpayer money to line his pocket.

    Here's quite the self-own, from Donald Trump:

    So . . . he's blaming Obama and Biden for him being president . . . which would only be a bad thing if Trump were a bad president. I mean, if we take the premise, that Obama and Biden are responsible for Trump being President as true, then wouldn't Trump and his ilk be thanking them and not blaming them? Blaming means something bad happened as a result, that bad thing being Trump's presidency.

    Also . . . given today's Tweetstorm from Agolf Twitler, I think he's still hitting the COVID drugs hard.

    Finally he speaks the truth. They didn't do well enough job to ensure that sociopath fascists such as Trump can't take over the government, with the help of fanatical cult base. Now, is it fair to blame them, since they didn't know to expect something such as this happening? Probably not. Although, there were definite signs of rights complete and terminal radicalization during Obamas first term already.

    So Team Trump has a plan to win back seniors, a group they're currently losing to Biden and, well, death.

    "Ah, clearly an announced policy that will--"

    Nope.

    "Another shot at the $200 gift cards using leftov--"

    Nope.

    "Um...YouTube ads? Ugh, even I know that's wrong."

    Focus group tested advertising on how well Trump handled the lethal outbreak.

    "Aren't seniors voting against Trump because he c--"

    You're seeing really good, really strong advertising that we're out of the box with this week that has tremendous appeal to seniors.

    We know that, it's been tested, test off the charts, messaging that seniors want to see and it's being delivered to them. So whatever perceived slippage you're seeing in your numbers among seniors, I'm absolutely certain that it will be addressed.
    "So...Trump's new campaign manager, the one that didn't try to beat his wife thn kill himself, claims they can make up 20 points in under a month?"

    Yes.

    "I mean...with enough science and facts, I guess--"

    The first ad, "Carefully," defends Trump's handling of COVID-19 — a key concern for older voters. The ad features a clip of the government's top infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci saying, "I can't imagine that ... anybody could be doing more." (Fauci has said that the campaign took his words out of context and that he didn't consent to appearing in the ad.)
    "So Trump's attempt to get back the senior vote he lost by lying is to...keep lying."

    Correct. And of course, any ad Trump airs that lies, Biden can release two that tell the truth, and Biden will have more money left over. I have no idea how this approach has any chance of working at all. But Trump is 20 points behind with seniors, and clearly, trying something ridiculous and risky is better than sitting there and losing.

    The good news for Trump? At least all those tweets and FB posts he's having struck down because they're false and dangerous won't affect seniors much.

    I see your approach and raise you "Trump is objectively doing worse than Obama and Biden in everything except judge appointments, wife beating, and WH members being hauled off in handcuffs."

    In the ongoing...uh...fuck it. An Army base training ground in Colorado is now on fire, due to a wildfire that started nearby and spread.

    So...are we giving the soldiers rakes now? Or just admitting wildfires are a problem and should be taken more seriously than a TV game show host has been?

    WHO calls the "herd immunity" approach "simply unethical".

    Never in the history of public health has herd immunity been used as a strategy for responding to an outbreak

    This kind of response really bugs me, though, because herd immunity includes vaccinations. Our goal with measles, for example, is a herd immunity approach in a very real sense. It would be far better for them to refer to it as a "herd immunity strictly through recovery alone" approach, but that's a mouthful.

    I think it's more them not wanting to get bogged down with what is or isn't herd immunity and just cutting to the point of "Trump/BoJo's approaches suck".

    It's not just unethical. It might not even be possible. We don't know how long antibodies persist. Some people tested negative for antibodies within weeks of being infected.

    I always like to address this disingenuous comparison by asking this question: Was Lincoln a conservative, or a progressive, for his time?

    Hint: Abolitionists were all Republican, and the Confederacy was made up of Democrats.

    The parties have switched their ideological alignments, but Lincoln is on the side of progressives, not on the side of someone like Trump.

    It's been a while since I've seen schematics and I'm sure things have changed since then, but IIRC that entrance is really near the AF1 med bay.

    Just saying.

    Actually, if you piss him off enough, he'll release a video documenting how bad a wrestler you are. Like what happened to the Ultimate Warrior. Or not mention you at all until you're dead, like Macho Man Randy Savage.

    And think of viruses in a larger scale. If "herd immunity" was a legitimate way of getting rid of viruses as a natural process, there wouldn't be viruses anymore. Which is clearly not the case.

    It's almost as if they've adapted to persist over the millions and millions of years they've been around, back before things like vaccines existed, because they could mutate and find new populations to infect faster than any "herd immunity" could develop.

    The herd immunity excuse is just that... an excuse to do nothing, as is Trump's M.O, with the vague assurance that things will take care of themselves.
