So to recap: one of our current presidential candidates is for a party that has been responsible, and advocated others be responsible, when it comes to this virus, who've worn masks in public, and who trust and listen to scientists and medical experts in regards to this pandemic. They have also tried to work with others to help tackle some of the fallout of this virus, and have tried to put guidelines and mandates in place to help keep everyone safe.

Our other presidential candidate is currently at Walter Reed hospital being treated for a virus he refused to take seriously, and his party is getting sick in droves with the same virus because they also refused to take it seriously, and they've put other people at risk, potentially jeopardized our country's national security in the process, and have 200,000 plus American deaths on their hands because of their mismanagement of this virus, as well as their general selfishness and ignorance. And they've got "experts" and "doctors" that nobody can trust, too.

Gee. Yeah. Our choice this November is SUCH a tough one.
And somehow, all of this is going to improve Trump's chances of re-election, according to some. I find it very odd that anyone could see willful incompetence and subsequent ironic comeuppance as a good political strategy, but perhaps I'm not imaginative enough.

Which is good news for all those who want to sue his ass, if he wants to claim he purposely got it and then infected others as a result, well that's a lawyer's dream.
Oh, I hope to God there's lawsuits ready to go, because these people deserve every kind of criminal charge thrown at them that's available.

Also, if that's their plan, that's one hell of a slap in the face to all the loved ones of those who've DIED from this virus. Or those who've gotten sick with this and are still feeling severe effects months later. It's not surprising to see them that callous, mind, but it's yet another stark reminder of just how little they truly give a shit about others.

And people wonder why we can't bother to muster up any sort of sympathy for Trump or the other GOP members who've gotten this, why some are going so far as to outright cheer this. This is the kind of attitude and behavior they want to present to the world, fuck them. And fuck every single person who voted for this party and continues to support them or plans to vote for them again, too. If this isn't enough to wake you up and make you realize you've made a gigantic mistake, there's really no hope for you.

Like I said yesterday, logic apparently isn't some people's strong point.

It's pretty strange to have a race this stable. And because of it, you can almost make predictions of what the outcome of swing states will be by just using one number - 6. This seems to be the average swing from Clinton to Biden in close swing states. A little bit less in southern swing states - so maybe 5 there.

If we do that it would mean:
(rounding a bit)

MN - Biden +7.5
WI - Biden +5.5
MI - Biden +5.5
PA - Biden +5.5
NC - Biden +3
FL - Biden +3.5
AZ - Biden +2.5
GA - Biden tied
OH - Trump +1
IA - Trump +2
TX - Trump +3

I could see this as a very possible result from a race that has literally only ranged from Biden +7 to Biden +9 in the last four months. Difficult to see any major shifts at this point.

That would be 335 to 187 with GA's 18 points possibly going either way.

He looks like he was dragged out of the bed and probably given enough drugs to not feel anything.

Even when his life is on the line, these guys keep pushing the narrative “not a big deal, open it all up!!”

This is probably the most active we’ll see him the rest of the campaign or even longer

Yeah, I love how anyone who supports a President who has said the most vile disgusting things about other people can be so outraged about people wishing karma on him. That being said-because I am a much better person than Donald Trump will ever be, I don't wish covid on him or any other person. Or for him or anyone else to die from covid.

I watched my Mom dying of cancer for nine months. And I've had to listen to Donald Trump mocking people who died from brain cancer. So fuck you Trump and all your one-way morality supporters. No moral indignation about taking health care away from people either. Selective hypocritical moral outrage. IT IS WHAT IT IS

Right? This is the guy who spent all of Obama's presidency pushing a racist birther conspiracy against hi. And people knew that, and still looked at him and said, "Yeah, he should totally win not only the GOP nomination, but also the presidency."

And yet we're supposed to be nice to them, because...?

The Democrats always try and "play nice". We've had to deal with four years of trying to "play nice" with a bully of a president and an administration who made it clear they could do whatever the hell they wanted, rules and consequences be damned, and who refused to hold Trump accountable for any of the horrible things he said and did.

At some point, us nice people are going to inevitably lose our patience and snap back. And I think most of the country is well past that point by now. We're tired. We're frustrated, We're angry. And we have every right to express that. If the right takes issue with it, well, they're the ones who set the bar and made it clear it was okay to be this way. This is what Trump supporters fail to understand: they don't have a single solitary bit of moral high ground to stand on here. They don't get to preach to us, they don't get to spend years treating us like shit and then demand we respect them and act all offended when we fight back and try playing their game.

I'm not wishing death, either. My attitude is more along the lines of, "Gee, I am just so shocked that these people's own stupidity came back to bite them hard in the ass."

This. This is what pisses me off the most. I still remember that GOP debate from almost a decade ago where the moderator asked the candidates if someone should die if they didn't have insurance, and people in the crowd CHEERED. I remember seeing that at a time when my mom was visiting my dying aunt, and seeing that about a year or so after my dad died, and my family was still dealing with the medical debt that came from that.

I've had to listen to this same party for years preach about how "pro-life" they are while simultaneously trying to take healthcare away from others, and trying to restrict women's rights regarding their reproductive health. And I've had to listen to them call working-class/poor people like my family "freeloading moochers" who want "government handouts" because we dare to demand that we get the same kind of healthcare that people like Trump are currently getting (all while he's cheated the tax system, too, I might add. Meanwhile if my family had done that, we'd (rightly) get a, "Tough shit, you're on your own" response from the government).

So again I say, we're supposed to be nice to these people, and show them sympathy, because...?
