What's the over under on Donnie inappropriately leering at and touching Ivanka like he did in 2016? After she talks about what a great President he's been, of course.

Agreed — it won’t be intentional. Just wondering if someone will slip up.

I am SO excited to see what’s in store for us next week. It’s gonna be lit like a cross on a front lawn.

Rules say "during all RNC scheduled speeches. Must be reported by New York Times or Washington Post."

This is what I've taken...

Trump to say "Goodyear" +200
Trump to say "hoax" +135
Trump to say "Sleepy Joe" +150
Trump to say "witch hunt" +150
Mark McCloskey will wear a pink shirt +425


I get the feeling I will be having a good week

It looks official now, with the drop from Ohio, I don’t see west being on any crucial swing state ballots.

Also, the Green Party candidate Hawkins has been blocked from the WI ballot due to paperwork issues.

Those two off the ballot in WI could be a safe percentage point of vote for Biden. Green got 31k votes last time and they were saying that West could get 100k in WI. Which I doubt, but even if 10% of those votes went to Biden it would be more than the vote difference in 2016.

This could go into the other thread but it’s basically a political statement, nothing to do with health


https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/...108663808?s=21

Looks like he wants the Putin method for vaccine.

What’s so fucking dangerous about this isn’t the lack of safety (which is very dangerous), it’ll be the complete break down of trust towards medicine, doctors, and science in the future. If we rush a “cure” with no evidence it works, and it doesn’t work, then this country won’t take another damn vaccine again

He’s trying to set up the following: “they have a vaccine and are keeping it from you because they want me to lose; but if I win, I’ll crush my Deep State enemies and let vaccine relief rain down on us the victorious.” It’s like idiot supervillain world.

Also of note: there are two forming hurricanes barreling towards the Gulf of Mexico, and expected to make landfall. That’s two more major opportunities for Trump to fail, like he usually does.

It’s gonna be a week.

It’s the amount of hate that’s going to come out of next week that may bother me the most. Their conventions are always full of it but there’s no filter or bottom anymore.

I think it could end up being one of the saddest weeks this country has had in regards to its ideals and morale

And sadly I don’t think it will do much to alter his standing in the polls. Some people are gonna be swayed by it, some will be turned off. The best hope is that Biden gets a small bump that can possibly sustained.

I truly can’t imagine some of the shit that’s gonna happen next week.

The problem is people are tired of it, or they take it as filler to drive ratings (and not wrong).

A lot of my friends back in Iowa don’t take how serious this election is. Most will vote for Biden but they still hold on to this belief that our system of checks and balances will keep us from ever turning into a Russia, Nazi Germany, or any other dictatorship.

Most of my friends are upper middle class, and tend to focus on the stock market more than the actual economy. I feel like a lot of people don’t care until they see their 401k empty

Maryanne Trump Barry was serving as a federal judge when she heard her brother, President Trump, suggest on Fox News, “maybe I'll have to put her at the border” amid a wave of refugees entering the United States. At the time, children were being separated from their parents and put in cramped quarters while court hearings dragged on.

“All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” Barry said in a conversation secretly recorded by her niece, Mary L. Trump. “He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”

Barry, 83, was aghast at how her 74-year-old brother operated as president. “His goddamned tweet and lying, oh my God,” she said. “I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy shit.”
This is fun
