    Trump already had multiple chances to put out multiple fires. Instead he keeps pouring gasoline on them. Smoke, there's no smoke and anyway the wind will blow the smoke away.


    Interesting segment from Rachel Maddow. At the impeachment hearings, Professor Pamela Karlan, laid out an extreme hypothetical of a fictitious president refusing to send mandated emergency relief aid to a state, unless it did him a political favour. Six months later, that is no longer a hypothetical.






    Just a note, it was not ballots but applications for an absentee ballot and no laws were broken. States rights, ya'all.

    Since poo-flinging is apparently back in season... Hillary did win. The Electoral College stole the election for the Rethugs, as per usual.

    And thanks for proving again that you are not actually a Libertarian but clearly a closet Trumpist. Just man-up for once.

    I dunno. Trump has shown us that we all have a high tolerance for stupidity. As long as Biden can manage to keep his stupid quotient just under Trump, he has a chance.

    On the plus side, he hasn't suggested anyone nuke a hurricane or inject bleach into their veins yet, and he's 28 accusations behind Trump on the sexual assault front.

    The odds are in his favor.

    Biden did an extended interview (50 minutes) for Colbert. Dodged the health care question. Apparently wants to focus on infrastructure and education:

    You had one job, Fox News, one job!

    Many will disagree, but @FoxNews is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected on November 3rd. Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real “garbage” littered all over the network, people like Dummy Juan Williams, Schumerite Chris Hahn, Richard Goodstein, Donna Brazile, Niel Cavuto, and many others. They repeat the worst of the Democrat speaking points, and lies. All of the good is totally nullified, and more. Net Result = BAD! CNN & MSDNC are all in for the Do Nothing Democrats! Fox WAS Great!

    He only hurts us because he loves us. If were prettier and less fake he wouldn't be so mean.

    Maybe FOX will finally realise that Trump only loves them for their fawning flattery and free publicity. And maybe I will stop eating chocolate.


    Gott Mitt Trump! Around the 2 minute mark.



    Trump threatens to "override" governors if they refuse to open churches this weekend. I got a feeling that's not in the Constitution.

    Gone are my blues,
    And gone are my tears;
    I've got good news
    To shout in your ears.
    The long lost dollar has come back to the fold,
    With silver you can turn your dreams to gold.

    We're in the money,
    We're in the money;
    We've got a lot of what it takes to get along!
    We're in the money,
    The sky is sunny;
    Old Man Depression, you are through, you done us wrong!

    We never see a headline
    'Bout breadline, today,
    And when we see the landlord,
    We can look that guy right in the eye.

    WASHINGTON ― The bad news for President Donald Trump: He may well lose reelection later this year.

    The good news for his top campaign staff: They will wind up really rich either way.

    Brad Parscale, whom Trump named to run his 2020 effort in early 2018, has already collected $38.9 million through his companies from Trump’s various reelection committees between January 2017 and the end of March, according to a HuffPost analysis of Federal Election Commission filings.

    Gerrit Lansing’s payment processing company, which he started while a staffer at the National Republican Congressional Committee and continued to run while he worked at the Republican National Committee, has taken in $1.7 million. Katie Walsh, briefly a Trump White House aide and a former RNC chief of staff, has received $877,424 through her firms. And Richard Walters, who at age 30 is the current chief of staff, makes $244,943 a year in salary but last year was paid an additional $135,000 through his own consulting firm. Since the Trump presidency began, he has been paid a total of $755,324.

    For Parscale, who just a few years ago was designing websites in San Antonio for Trump’s properties, among other clients, the sudden wealth has afforded him a $2.4 million waterfront house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a pair of million-dollar condos, a brand new $400,000 boat, and another half-million dollars in luxury cars, including a Range Rover and a Ferrari.

    “This thing has been a large criminal enterprise. It’s like that scene in the ‘Goodfellas’ after the heist,” said Republican consultant Stuart Stevens, a veteran of the George W. Bush and Mitt Romney presidential campaigns. “Dishing out furs to mob bosses’ girlfriends and wives.”

    [...]

    Lara Trump, wife of Eric Trump, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., are both receiving $15,000 a month of campaign money that is routed through Parscale’s companies. Parscale defended the practice to HuffPost last month ― “I can pay them however I want to pay them” ― but he declined to elaborate.

    “I think the general public would be interested to know what members of Trump’s extended family are being paid by campaign donors,” said Paul Ryan, a campaign finance legal expert at the watchdog group Common Cause.

    How many others are paid in a similarly secret manner is not publicly knowable. For example, Trump’s first 2016 campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, told HuffPost at a February campaign rally that he had rejoined the campaign last year as a senior adviser ― the same title held by both Lara Trump and Guilfoyle. But he also does not appear in FEC records, and neither he nor the campaign would respond to HuffPost queries about the matter.

    Of course, if he, like Lara Trump and Guilfoyle, is making money off the Trump reelection with no public disclosure, he is certainly not alone. Many tens of millions of dollars in payments have gone to consulting firms that in turn purchase internet ads, television spots and mass mailings ― but also keep undisclosed percentages for their principals.

    [...]

    But if campaign staff and consultants are enriching themselves thanks to Trump donors, it is no different than what Trump himself has been doing since even before taking office: paying himself millions of dollars for use of his own properties.

    A HuffPost analysis of FEC data shows that Trump’s campaign, the RNC and their related joint committees have spent $6.4 million at Trump hotels and resorts from January 2017 through March 31. That includes $37,542 per month in rent for space at Trump Tower in Manhattan, even though the campaign is based in a high-rise in Arlington, Virginia, and just a handful of staff use the New York office.

    That practice of funneling donor money into his own pocket began in 2016, right after he became the presumptive Republican nominee and began raising large amounts of GOP cash. Trump immediately quintupled the rent he was charging his campaign at Trump Tower, from $35,458 per month to $169,758. He also began billing the campaign five- and six-figure sums for use of his hotels and golf courses for hosting fundraisers.

    Yet for all the reelection campaign’s spending, there remains the question of what has been achieved. Trump opened his reelection campaign literally the day he took office ― more than two years earlier than his recent predecessors began their reelection efforts.

    Trump’s approval ratings, while slightly higher than they were at the lowest points of his presidency, have remained stuck in the low 40s. While they edged upward a few points after the coronavirus pandemic struck in a classic “rally ’round the flag” effect, that disappeared quickly after Trump staged nightly two-hour briefings in which he repeatedly aired his numerous grievances and unusual medical theories.

    Trump uses Covid to totally remove any and all regulations which might inhibit economic growth.

    "I'm directing agencies to review the hundreds of regulations we've already suspended in response to the virus and make these suspensions permanent where possible," Trump said.

    He pointed to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation – among others – as agencies that would benefit from the order.

    "You have a right to do something that nobody would ever have thought you would have the right to do that," Trump told leaders of the agencies. "I just want you to go to town and do it right, do it proper, make sure everything is safe, and make sure it's environmentally good for those of you that are in that category, but it's very important."
    Of course industry is going to keep the health and safety of workers and citizens in it's heart as it vacuums up the bucks. Don't worry.

    Donald "Per capita relative to what" Trump can't tell the difference between babies and bathwater. This is a blank cheque to gut every regulation presently protecting people from unbridled capitalism.

    It overwhelmed our hospitals in the places where the outbreak was the heaviest. New York and Atlanta were well past capacity for a good while.

    What does socialism have to do with it? Coronavirus don't give a fuck.

    "Socialism" a.k.a. behaving like responsible, caring adults, is working out pretty well in Canada. It's hard, of course, but the pain is shared and most people are staying the course and doing everything they can to not be flaming dicks. People write folk ballads about our health officers rather that demand they be lynched. That's a good thing, yes?

    People who are unemployed are getting income assistance and NOBODY has lost their health insurance. Unsurprisingly, the province being run by Trump North, has the highest infection and death rates but in fairness it is the most populated and our Trump has the sense to listen to people who know more about infectious diseases and is scaling back their reopening. Starting Monday, my province, British Columbia will be allowing limited return to normal with restaurants at 50% capacity and services like hair salons allowed to operate under strict rules about masks, gloves and cleaning between clients. Most will be adding a surcharge for the additional service and nobody seems to mind this. It's the new cost of normal.

    Because we have a nationally structured healthcare system, it is far easier to develop and deploy national strategies and to assure that necessary supplies are distributed according to need, not for profit. A credit card is not required to get a COVID19 test but most people know that unless they have a reasonable suspicion they have been exposed, they will refrain from unnecessary testing.

    People have universal access to virtual clinics where they can consult with doctors and nurse practitioners, renew prescriptions and get straight information about Covid19.

    Our front line medical workers are very stressed but they are getting the equipment they need to keep them as safe as possible. We don't ask them to stand in the street confronting gun-toting children demanding liberties they can't accept responsibility for. Instead we go out on the street at 7PM every day to bang pots, blow horns and let them know we are behind them (and out of their way). There have been no care crises because we have flattened the curve so well. We are already rescheduling urgent surgeries postponed by the outbreak and hospitals are able function normally.

    How is Trump handling the 100,000 people he has killed so far?
