    The Onion just published an article about COVID- 19 that will make you smile.

    Reports that President Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 following days of meetings, fundraisers, and a presidential election debate are giving rise to speculation that some of his advisors and confidants may also be infected. The Onion investigates who in the White House has potentially been exposed to coronavirus.


    Donald Trump Jr.: His propensity to be spit on by his father places him at increased risk of transmission.


    Stephen Miller: Exposure unlikely since the entire White House staff has maintained at least six feet of distance from him since Trump’s inauguration.


    Barack Obama: May have been exposed while listening in on Trump’s conversations behind a curtain in the Oval Office.

    Kimberly Guilfoyle: High likelihood she contracted the virus after stripping nude and forcing Jared Kushner to massage her feet.


    Robert O’Brien: Reports suggest the National Security Advisor repeatedly ignored credible threats that the coronavirus was planning an attack on the United States.


    Michael Vegas: Having no contact with Trump, Hope Hicks, or any of the White House staff, pornographic actor Michael Vegas is likely safe from the outbreak for now.


    Jared Kushner: Trump’s loyal advisor has fallen in line by licking all the Oval Office surfaces in an attempt to contract the virus.

    White House Press Corps: Journalists may have been exposed to Covid-19 through the virus-tainted air pumped daily into the press briefing room.


    Ivanka Trump: Just think, who has the most to gain from the death of the Trump patriarch? Who’s next in line for the throne? Not making any accusations, but just saying it’s worth thinking about, you know?


    Mark Meadows: Trump’s chief of staff has approximately 0% chance of contracting the virus as it does not exist and poses no threat to the American people.

    We've already got a few threads about the polls, but a story in the Arizona Republic this morning reinforced the fact that the polls DO matter to Trump - a lot.

    On the day President Trump returned to Phoenix for yet another visit to Arizona, a new poll shows he is trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by a large margin in the state.

    The poll by OH Predictive Insights has Biden up 52 percent to 42 percent over Trump.

    The Trump team is making FOUR visits to Arizona this week.

    On Sunday, Trump was at an INDOOR rally with "Latinos for Trump", with few people (including the governor) wearing masks.

    On Tuesday, Ivanka was in Phoenix.

    On Thursday, Karen Pence is coming to Phoenix.

    On Friday, hubby Mike will be here.

    https://www.abc15.com/news/election-2020/new-poll-biden-up-10-percent-over-trump-in-arizona

    "Latinos for Trump" actually sounds like an oxymoron.

    A recent Latinos Decision poll found that Trump trailed Biden nationally by 40 points (62-22). In Arizona, it's even worse, 65-18.

    Trump has been "anti-Mexican" since 2015, when he accused Mexico of sending rapists and murderers across the border. To make things worse, he later pardoned sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    Sunday's rally was Trump's FIFTH visit to Arizona this year. The list below shows all of the states that Trump has visited this year. By coincidence, the states he has visited the most (New Jersey, Virginia, and Florida) are all states where he has golf courses.

    Repeat after me.

    Emoluments clause.

    Ivanka is coming to Phoenix again on Sunday to promote the "dead horse" campaign of her father.

    They shoot horses, don't they?

    Yes, I love the onion and the Daily show they communicate the truth and make funny.

    In all seriousness, I wonder how history perceive these past 4 years with a more enlightened perspective that comes with experience and accepting the truth in a more enlightened future society. There is a good chance Trump will be perceived more realistically as a man with dangerous mental health problems that will be more obvious decades from now when there is far better understanding of his behavior. He is likely to be perceived as the Mad President much like King George who had bizarre behavior that nobody could control because he was King. Hopefully our descendants look back and see a man who mentally lived in a fantasy world in his own mind where he was the most important person alive, and went about his daily business as if everybody and everything was just a pawn for him to use (living in a dream 24x7x365x74). We as society will likely be perceived as being a largely ignorant society and therefore accepting of his mental health problems as being mostly normal behavior, thus we tolerated his destructive behavior simply because he was elected president, giving a mad man far too much power that we allowed him to abuse for 4 years before removing him from office, leaving behind nothing but destruction in our country, our government, and over 200,000+ lost lives over the course of the last 9 months of his term in office.

    Its very simple, everything Trump does makes things worse for everyone on the planet. There is nothing that can be pointed to that is now better because of him. He is cancer. I am not suggesting he evil, he is extremely dangerous person with very serious mental and social problems that have harmed people, and will continue to harm people for the rest of his life.

    Thanks. The crazy thing here is that still about 40% of the population may vote for him. As you describe the guy he has an awful history and was raised in an KKK family as well was spoon fed with money and had hardly any education as well lied all his life. So what is wrong with this country that such person "can" be elected? I wrote many times about this but for deaf ears. The history books won't be kind about this country, which refuses to have "decent" working laws. As long as any "idiot" can become President here, then even the "brainless" 40% must realize that staying on this path will mean the end of the US as an country with any standing in the world. But yeah I've got the feeling that things will get worse instead of better.

    Trump is not getting desperate because he's pulling all kind of surprises out of his ass. The 40% loves it while the hospital visit was only an deviation tactic. He will pull more things out of his fat ass, like the appointment of the "holy" bitch. Have fun with her; stupid Democrats! Her "forever" appointment will have huge consequences and hurt this country for an very long time. But "catholic" Nancy does not care. Enjoy!!

    Religion does not belong in "governing" Amen.

    I got a fundraising appeal this morning from Republican whip Steve Scalise this morning, and he sounds more than a little nervous:

    **************************************************************************

    Fellow Patriot, my heart sank when I saw the final FEC report of the election.

    Republicans are getting MASSIVELY outraised. We are in serious trouble and really need your help.

    House Democrats are ahead by $35 million, Joe Biden outraised President Trump by $135 million, AND Liberals raked in 3/4 of a billion online last month.

    If you aren’t worried -- you should be. We have nearly 2 weeks until the most important election in history. The President’s agenda is in immediate danger.

    Anything you can do right now is mission critical. If every Pro-Trump Patriot reading this email contributes at least $27 right now, we can catch up to the Left and FIGHT BACK in swing states for Trump.

    >>> All Pro-Trump patriots eligible for 600% matching until 11:59PM

    CONTRIBUTE $27 (600% MATCHED)

    CONTRIBUTE $50 (600% MATCHED)

    CONTRIBUTE $100 (600% MATCHED)

    CONTRIBUTE $250 (600% MATCHED)

    CONTRIBUTE $500 (600% MATCHED)

    Are you going to be intimidated by the Left’s overflowing bank accounts, or will you fight for our Conservative movement?

    If every Patriots does their part -- including you and me -- we can rush support to swing states and WIN for Trump.

    Are you in? I’ll 600% match you, if you act now!

    I hope this wakes you up; "money" does not belong in elections; it corrupts. But yeah they never learn in this country, that is obvious. Money does not buy you "brains", it bought you an "mafia uneducated corrupt fat ass" . Why make the mistake over and over again. Sorry to say my thing over and over again: This country is going down the drain in an hurry because of it.

    Internationally speaking ; this country has become the "has been" of the world.

    On a call Monday, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien revealed the campaign’s total ad buy for the last two weeks of the presidential race would be a whopping a paltry $55 million ... split between no fewer than 11 states.

    Um, just wow. And that's not only the Trump campaign, it represents coordinated spending with the Republican National Committee (RNC) too. Far from being a muscular way to close out the race, it feels more like a cry for help. By comparison, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said last week that she still anticipates raising another $234 million through the election.

    The 11 states included on the target list for both entities are: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine-2, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

    One state the Trump campaign appears to have finally given up on altogether is Minnesota. Earlier on Monday, the Trump camp had announced cancelling ad buys in several Midwestern states even as they were preparing to reinvest in some of them through this coordinated ad buy with the RNC. But Minnesota, which has pretty much always been a pipe dream for Team Trump, was dropped altogether.

    Even before this final Trump ad buy in the closing weeks, Biden's ad spending had outpaced Trump's by a 2-to-1 ratio for months, according to The New York Times. In a review of the two campaigns' spending in 10 battleground states, the only state where Trump outspent Biden was Georgia—which doesn't exactly jibe with that state's inclusion in Stepien's so-called "easy” list.

    So as Trump closes out with a whimper, Biden is heading out with a roar, and his sizable cash advantage has made all that possible.

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/10/19/1987809/-Trump-s-final-ad-buy-shows-just-how-broke-his-campaign-really-is?detail=emaildkre

    "Among some of Mr. Trump's lieutenants," reports the Times, there is "a sense that the best they can do for the final stretch is to keep the president occupied, happy and off Twitter as much as possible, rather than producing a major shift in strategy."

    Yes, it is truly a shocking development. In the last weeks of the campaign, Donald Trump is ignoring all advice, doubling down on his most hateful behaviors, and choosing closing themes based solely on his own obsessions, grievances, and malevolence. Whoever could have seen that coming?

    It turns out that Donald Trump, left to himself with campaign staff abandoning any further pretense at controlling him, is hateful, spiteful, anti-democratic, misogynistic, openly racist, paranoid, and self-absorbed to the point of self-destruction.

    Just keep throwing with money; it will only mean that this country is more and more stupid and ignorant. Every election there is more and more money spent; it escalates to what point? Does it gets you the "best" people for the job? forget it.

    Stop this nonsense, or there is no future at for this stupid country if everything is done with "money". No one has learned from the Trump debacle and continues as nothing happened. I doubt if Biden wins that he will change things; it then also may mean the end for him continuing on the same disastrous path. "money" does not belong in "appointments" or "elections" Full stop.

    AZ, Trump appears to have a new come back strategy, insult his own hardcore fans. At a rally today at Erie,PA he said this (Exact Transcript):

    And you know what? Four or five months ago when we started this whole thing, because you know, before the plague came in, I had it made. I wasn’t coming to Erie. I mean, I have to be honest, there was no way I was coming. I didn’t have to. I would’ve called you and said, “Hey, Erie. You know, if you have a chance, get out and vote.” We had this thing won

    {Audience is silence not certain they heard him correctly saying he didn't want to be in Erie,now or ever}

    Translation: If I wasn't forced to come to Erie, I wouldn't have come. Erie is where losers go to live, but I still want your vote despite how bad this place looks and smells. JEEZ, I can't get out of this dump fast enough.

    If Donald Trump seems more desperate than most incumbents about the coming election, he may have good reason: Presidents do not typically have to worry about going to prison if they lose.

    But Trump’s activities in recent years ― from paying hush money to a porn star to his claiming of a massive tax refund to obstructing an investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia ― combined with a ticking statute of limitations clock potentially make Election Day far more consequential for him than it had been for his predecessors.

    “Winning this election for him is not an option. It’s a necessity,” said Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal lawyer and “fixer” who was sentenced for, among other charges, arranging illegal payments to keep women he’d had affairs with from speaking out before the 2016 election.

    “He knows that if his tax returns are revealed that he and his children ― Don Jr., Ivanka, Eric ― and others will be charged with a host of criminal tax issues, which will not only cost him his freedom but his entire business,” Cohen said.

    Trump was already described as “Individual-1” in Cohen’s prosecution. With a five-year statute of limitations for many federal crimes, the clock would run out on the hush money cases in late 2021.

    Daniel Goldman, a former federal prosecutor who a year ago served as the lead lawyer in the House’s impeachment of Trump, said an ex-President Trump in 2021 could also face charges of bribery for his commutation of aide Roger Stone’s prison sentence as well as extortion charges for his attempts to coerce Ukraine into smearing his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump was impeached for that but was permitted by Republicans in the Senate to remain in office.

    Even before Biden got the nomination, Trump has been actively trying to come up with a "scandal" to discredit Joe, and the phone call to the Ukrainian president is the most blatant abuse of his power.

    The latest "scandal" are the laptops that Hunter allegedly dropped off to be repaired.

    Senate Homeland Security Committee Chair Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) was demanding more FBI information. Specifically, he wanted to know about a laptop allegedly belong to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter with condemning emails.

    The FBI told him to pound sand, so there will NO investigation by the FBI.

    https://bipartisanreport.com/2020/10/21/fbi-humiliates-trump-rejects-hunter-biden-laptop-fake-scandal/

    The ONLY news source that published the story is the New York Post, which is owned by News Corporation - which also owns FOX "news".

    Further proof that Trump is getting dumber by the day.

    On MSNBC today, someone made the political argument that Trump understands his base better than the media, and that his base responds to different motivations than those on the left, such as they are more likely to vote for Trump if he threatens them. In this case, its like a {bad}parent saying "If you don't clean your room, I won't love you anymore". When kids are young and immature, they respond to threats more easily. For Trump's base, they tend to be immature adults that are quick to react to his threats without thinking much about it. His base is not the entire Republican party, so his threats might work on those blindly follow Trump, and think every word out of his mouth is gospel, it doesn't work on a majority of Replublican voters, let alone the entire nation. For most people its a major turn off, but for those who loving living in Trump World, they love it that he threatens them.

    wwjd, It is the same as with the crowd who got killed in Guyana; they did drink the poison; these people are the same; it is an "cult" which will destroy itself. It has a lot to do what "preachers" here spew of the pulpit; the churches are certainly helping with the indoctrination. They "blindly" follow Trump and have no clue about the consequences. The worst part of it is that they represent about close to 40% of the population.
