Yeah, but I figure when he tries to show off their quick draw (different from the quick draw his wife hates), he twists the barrel right at the chin and blammo.

Trump - "I don't hate the military. Let me prove that here by calling all of the leadership bloodthirsty greedy bastards."

The top leadership are greedy, bloodthirsty bastards.

Everyone else is a stupid sucker. Except those who die, they are also losers in addition to being stupid suckers.

That about covers it.

This is why VP picks can matter. Just imagine Tim Kaine doing this.

As I suspected last week, it is now being confirmed that Trump campaign is low on cash on hand.
They have burned through 800 MILLION DOLLARS with no results. Parscale was "spending like a drunk sailor" spending 350 million just on fundraising operations.

And Trump just tweeted that they have LOTS of $$$$!!! So you know that they are hurting for cash.

We are now 54 days out, which means about half of the country will start voting in about a week and a half. The military story is still going, largest drug companies are signing pledges that they won't manufacture a vaccine that isn't fully tested, Trump is off the air in AZ, which was considered his strongest swing state (other than FL), Michael Cohen's book comes out today.

So you can pretty much write off this week for Trump doing anything to get some traction.

Kaine was a complete buffoon. Maybe the worst VP pick in my lifetime, and that's on a list that includes Sarah Palin, Dan Quayle and Admiral "why am I here?" Stockdale.

Well to be fair, Trump is trying to turn things around.

While Joe was in PA talking with Union workers and leaders, and Harris was talking with black small business owners in WI, Trump went golfing twice and then talked about cans of soup again.

But he was from the all important swing state of Virg... oh never mind.

Just to add to anyone's PTSD nightmares, imagine Tim Kaine in skinny jeans, blazer and chucks

It was just such a typical Clinton move.

Quote:
The campaign hired a coterie of highly paid consultants (Mr. Trump’s former bodyguard and White House aide has been paid more than $500,000 by the R.N.C. since late 2017); spent $156,000 for planes to pull aerial banners in recent months; and paid nearly $110,000 to Yondr, a company that makes magnetic pouches used to store cellphones during fund-raisers so that donors could not secretly record Mr. Trump and leak his remarks.
The consultant expenditure is the easiest place for them to steal/grift as most of the time the services of these people are vague at best.

The other examples are just so Trumpian. Planes flying banners? What is this, 1982? Magnetic $100K+ on cell phone magnetic pouches because he can't control his verbal diarrhea. Heckuva job.

Trump says he'll give personal funds to campaign if needed. LOL. Yeah right.

They also think they are going to go after MN, NV and NH. sigh.

The West has basically shown almost consistently that they do not understand what happens in far off places, that they don't understand decades/centuries-old struggles and hatreds, the effects that western colonialism has had in drawing unnatural border lines and pitting local people against each other along ethnic or religious lines when it suited them, the propping up of despots and dictators for much of the same reason and so on.

And yet our governments and yes, entertainers like Bono, feel it nevertheless to be a good idea to continue to meddle, regardless of how well-intentioned it may be. So you end up with embarrassments like this.

He will make it all tax deductible, and then pay the majority of it to his kids or some shit as salary

Oh, and my pillow speaker fees.

Some very head turning state polls out today

PA - Biden +2 very small sample size
MO - Trump +5
OH - Biden +4!! Not believing this one - From Rasmussen which is shocking. Along with the WI +8 from them yesterday. I'm thinking this shitty pollster is setting up a Biden surge followed by a Biden decline in order to make it look like Trump is gaining later on. Who knows, but these numbers from Rassmussen are just strange.

TX - Trump +1

and the big news maker

FL - Tied

I dug into the numbers on this one a bit. While there has been some clear tightening in FL over the last few weeks, the sample on this one is odd.

Small sample size. taken last week, +/-4.5 Margin of Error

has a party ID of 35% GOP, 32% Dem, 31% indie

Actual party Reg in FL is - 38% Dem, 36% Rep, and 27% Indie

Then by education

Those with a college degree: 42%

Whites with college degrees: 26%

Exit polls from 2016

Those with a college degree: 52%

Whites with college degrees: 35%

Either way. This is the worst state to be tightening in. So even if this isn't the best polling sample, if it gets Biden's ol' ass to FL and dump more money into it, then that's fine by me.

Pretty hot take to question the integrity of respected polls without evidence as to why, regardless of whether or not the performance of their polls leans one way or another.

Not saying it’s beneath 2020 for polls to be falsified in the name of our savior agent orange, but I don’t know why you can’t believe a poll would show fluctuations over time.
