It is no both shocking and in retrospect predictable like a season finale twist that was foreshadowed all season but still makes you gasp when it happens.October 6, 2020 at 3:00 pm #962979FyodorGuest
I did not foresee Trump, while infected with COVID, breaking containment protocols and personally wandering around trying to infect everyone though it is not inconsistent in any way with his character.October 7, 2020 at 9:50 am #962995BondgirlGuest
I’m not surprised by Trump’s current and ongoing reckless behavior and continually spreading the virus to everyone he sees. What I AM surprised at, however, is how the Secret Service doesn’t seem to have put their foot down. Yes, they have the job to protect the president, but the department also has an obligation to protect their agents so they can do their job. Why is that being ignored right now? I’m probably answering my own question by presuming some incompetent Trump appointee is running the agency…..October 7, 2020 at 9:58 am #962996LisforLeslieGuest
And then he doubles down and announces that there won’t be any further negotiations for COVID support until after the election. The lack of understanding of how politics works, how he’s perceived and how his motivations are not shared by anyone else is just staggering.
The delusional thinking is just astounding.October 7, 2020 at 8:43 pm #963017SaraGuest
You tell him Kamala. Also why do Pence’s eyes look so bloodshot?October 8, 2020 at 1:10 am #963019saneincaGuest
34 WH staffers infected ? 18 attendees of nomination event infected ?
Trump is the Typhoid Mary of our times.October 8, 2020 at 7:01 am #963023LisforLeslieGuest
and the staffers are TOTALLY getting the precious cocktail and $100K of treatment right?
Or they’ve been told to suck it up…
I know which path I’d bet on.October 8, 2020 at 10:59 am #963032Part-time LurkerGuest
Trump: “You catch it, you get better, then you’re immune.”
Yeah, I guess if you catch it and die you are definitely immune.

My anxiety levels are really high. In western PA I saw SOOO many T signs. I felt sick to my stomach 🤮October 19, 2020 at 12:28 pm #963415RangerchicParticipant
Here in Colorado Springs, Trumpsters are out in full force. There was a huge bunch standing next to a major highway waving the signs, etc. Also there are a few pop-up stands selling trump paraphernalia like t-shirts, etc. I really just can’t believe there are that many people who still stand for him.October 19, 2020 at 1:15 pm #963423ronGuest
Stay calm. Vote. Tell your anti-Trump family and friends to vote. Focus upon the positive: Trump continues to fall in the polls and the election is rushing upon us, with over 20 million votes already cast at a time when less than 42% of voters say they are going to vote for him. Nate Silver’s very reliable 538 site, with a weighted poll average, based upon historical accuracy, has Trump’s chance of winning down to 12% and Biden’s chance of winning up to 88%, the most favorable it has been since Biden locked up the nomination. 538 is the only site which I saw in 2016 that gave Trump an almost equal shot with Clinton of winning the electoral college. This is not a mindless pro-Dem site.October 19, 2020 at 1:50 pm #963424anonymousseParticipant
Five thirty eight was famously very wrong about 2016. They gave Clinton a 71% chance of winning compared to Trump at 28%. This prediction was more generous to Trump than many, but it was still sadly, wrong.
What we learned in 2016 is that polls lie. They are a select slice of information, not gospel. I’ve read that Trumpers are not participating in many polls now just so that progressives fall into complacency. They are using many voter suppression tactics. They are using every tool they possibly can to get people to not vote.
Vote like lives depend on it, because many do! Encourage your Trump supporting relatives to vote for Biden. Pick a topic that’s important to you and factually explain why he shouldn’t be in charge for another four years.*
