I could be wrong, but we'll see what tonight's numbers look like. Right now it doesn't look like there's 400 coming out of nowhere.
    And this is why we appreciate your work in following this, writing up great daily reports. Your insight is great and super helpful.

    My son came home from school today asking if the China coronavirus is the reason his mickey mouse game in his tablet isn't working. He heard it from a classmate. In kindergarten.

    I nipped that shit right in the bud, said that the coronavirus is the germs that mommy and daddy have been talking about for months, that it hurts people not computers, that it's a problem for the whole world and not just China, and that it's the reason we all have to wear masks and wash our hands and give people more personal space, so we can all work together to make sure we don't get sick.

    I fucking hate Trump and his bullshit.

    Should have told him to soak it in bleach and then subject it to the strong lights of the microwave. Then when it was properly fried screamed "SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LISTEN TO TRUMP!"?

    Harsh I know :P (But it would stay with him)

    There's a MAGA civil war happening and no one told us!!



    Thoughts and prayers!
    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    There's the "civil war" for the types that like that kinda thing, though I don't know if it's what they had in mind.

    Sources say Trump is going nuclear at Fox again....
    Allegedly some words were said...
    Hannity overhead the arguments and is crying now...

    Hoping to get some confirmation shortly.

    Vote counts aren't budging and Trump's lead in PA/GA is looking harder to break.

    Nothing in this election can surprise me anymore, but--

    And Trump couldn't even do that.

    Instead, his actions have literally cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans.
    Agreed. It will forever baffle me how Donnie Dipshit failed to see how a global pandemic was the perfect opportunity for a failed dictator wannabe. Shut down the country, rule with an iron fist, he could have walked away with the Election in a landslide.

    Trump Jr. calls out 2024 GOP hopefuls for 'lack of action'

    This is a cult. There is only loyalty to Trump.

    Donnie Dum-dum Jr., who himself is seen as a potential future political candidate, decried a "total lack of action" from those who may make a run in four years, as the current presidential race comes down to the wire in a handful of battleground states.

    “They have a perfect platform to show that they’re willing & able to fight but they will cower to the media mob instead,” Donnie Dum-dum Jr. tweeted, adding that his father "will fight & they can watch as usual!"

    Trump is delusional. What a ridiculous speech. The Whitehouse has become a joke. The fact that the republican party lets this shit fly tells me it has to be entirely stamped out. American democracy is deeply wounded.

    And yet 70 million souls voted for that...

    Sometimes I think I might start feeling deeply sorry for Trump.

    ...until I remind myself that he thinks torture is ok.

    Or that you remind yourself that man has been a public piece of shit that only cares about himself and how to make money off everyone and everything for 47 years.

    This fraud deserves no sympathy nor compassion. Let the door hit him on the ass on his way out so hard it lands him in jail where he may Epstein himself. Too soon? I don't give a fuck.

    Um, really, they are in recount territory in GA with 21K or so heavily Dem populated absentee votrs to count and PA is under 65K with like 300k absentee votes in mostly, and far more populated dem strongholds. I mean trump went from a 700k lead just then other day to 65K today. Also lost 110 just today.

    AZ, PA, and GA will all be Blue. Two runoffs for senate could easily both go dem as well.

    Dan Crenshaw is an idiot, but Nick Fuentes is basically a Nazi lol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Fuentes

    I know you are just making fun of him for his bitching at Crenshaw for his support of Trump, and I am just pointing out that this dipshit is objectively worse, probably, compared to Crenshaw.

    Well, I knew all that before he was elected of course. I'm not from America and all of his strange exploits and his ...uh... frivolous adventures through the decades seemed more like the magazines that ran with the stories, like something out of a soap opera to me. Like... he was a J.R. Ewing type of guy, if you know what I mean, but he was kind of... inconsequential in real life. But when he ran for President, he actually came up with all this horrible stuff, like nuking countries, hurricanes and whatnot and, at least to me above all the torture is ok stuff that seemed to me like an actual 'hint' to people agreeing with him and an encouragement to behave accordingly. So that was, to me, the first time that I thought this is not 'inconsequential' anymore. This is going to make people step over lines, it's going to actually ruin lives. Saying something like that is more than boastful posturing with stuff you think noone's going to do anyway, it might become an everyday thing, if a President says it's ok.
    I can't really tell you why that specifically is the thing that shocked me most (at the time), but it is and it is to me the mark of such a despicable character in a human being that it is just the thing that reminds me to not feel too sorry.

    I still pity people like Trump, but that is more a 'spiritual' kind of pity, because of what they lack in life and what they already must have lacked in their lives that they turned out the way they are.

    Might need a drink before @Benggaul does his report tonight. Shits baaaad.

    Positive note, Biden is catching up in Georgia, about 3.5k votes behind Trump, with about 18/19k ballots left, and they’ve been heavily favoring Biden. And PA has Biden behind by around 64k now. It’s looking close boys, have some hope for the results

    Jesus Christ, that's 116,000 new cases, above even yesterday's record break. Deaths are "only" 1120. Not looking forward to the official @Benggaul number drop.

  19. #63759
    118,204* new cases; roughly 26k more than last Thursday and a new national record. Missouri did not report yet (sometimes they and Nebraska are squirrely about reporting on time) and they've had 3k+ the past two days, so in reality we probably passed the 120k mark today.

    Illinois: 9,935 new cases (new record); 97 deaths
    Texas: 9,591 new cases; 126 deaths
    Fuck Florida.
    California: 6,214 new cases; 48 deaths
    Michigan: 6,103 new cases (new record); 51 deaths
    Wisconsin: 5,922 new cases; 38 deaths
    Iowa: 5,048 new cases (new record); 17 deaths
    Ohio: 4,959 new cases (new record); 30 deaths
    Indiana: 4,412 new cases (new record); 47 deaths
    Minnesota: 3,942 new cases (new record); 25 deaths
    Colorado: 3,369 new cases (new record); 20 deaths
    New York: 3,056 new cases; 27 deaths
    North Carolina: 2,859 new cases; 41 deaths
    Pennsylvania: 2,815 new cases; 42 deaths
    Utah: 2,807 new cases (new record); 7 deaths
    Georgia: 2,344 new cases; 56 deaths
    Kentucky: 2,268 new cases (new record); 20 deaths
    Arizona: 2,135 new cases; 28 deaths
    Nebraska: 2,124 new cases (new record); 5 deaths
    Oklahoma: 2,101 new cases (new record); 21 deaths
    New Jersey: 2,047 new cases; 16 deaths
    Tennessee: 1,969 new cases; 31 deaths
    Massachusetts: 1,862 new cases; 23 deaths
    Connecticut: 1,687 new cases; 11 deaths
    Mississippi: 1,612 new cases; 8 deaths
    Arkansas: 1,548 new cases (new record); 11 deaths
    North Dakota: 1,536 new cases (new record); 29 deaths (new record)
    Alabama: 1,381 new cases; 20 deaths
    Washington: 1,375 new cases; 14 deaths
    Virginia: 1,366 new cases; 11 deaths
    South Dakota: 1,360 new cases; 22 deaths (new record)
    Nevada: 1,267 new cases; 10 deaths
    Idaho: 1,265 new cases; 7 deaths
    Maryland: 1,198 new cases; 10 deaths
    Montana: 1,013 new cases; 3 deaths

    Yes. That's a lot of records. No, that's not all of them. Oregon, for example, still hasn't made my list but set a new record today putting them 3/4 of the way there. New York has hit 3k for the first time since mid-May. Florida is admitting to over 6k again for the first time since the last outbreak in the Summer. Many of these records are a HUGE jump over previous ones. "Exponential" may not be technically mathematically correct here but that's the sense you'd get if you plotted this data on a graph. Positivity is increasing in the vast majority of the nation (some states way, way worse than others) and tomorrow will almost certainly see us break 120k officially (again, I feel we've broken it today given Missouri's numbers of the past week but don't want to doctor the numbers myself and create confusion).

    Next week we'll be seeing the numbers increase again, no doubt, since the current trends show no sign of slowing and Election Day surges will no doubt be a thing--particularly in TRUMP SHITSHOW country. In the meantime brace yourselves for tomorrow because all indicators point to it being the third day in a row the national record is broken.

    1,125 deaths (not including Missouri which could easily tack on another 30-50) is a little under a hundred more than last Thursday and raises the total to 240,953. The 7-day average continues climbing. 31 states had double-digit death totals but Texas topped the list again with 3 digits. This week has been bad. Next week will be worse. 1,500-days might be in the near-future.

    White House task force warns new cases are increasing 'exponentially' in weekly state reports--God damnit I was just trying to avoid using the word in this way!

    I agree, in most cases. However,

    There is a continued increase in cases, hospitalizations, and fatalities nationally, spreading southward from the coldest climates as the population moves indoors and cases increase exponentially
    Look back at the last couple weeks. They're right, aren't they?
