Also, can anyone imagine what Trump will do during the transition period if he loses? That could be mind boggling! Scary!

Probably working on his book deal...

Anything and everything he can to come up with $400 million to pay his debts once his immunity-by-presidency expires, lol.

Some good snark comedy from Project Lincoln, but also pretty on-point.

As a result of the Trump world we live in, this chilling picture of how overblown the threat of 'rioting and looting' has become -

Six sniper teams, hundreds of cops: Documents show major police presence at George Floyd's burial

Quote
Critics said that while demonstrators across the U.S. were protesting police violence, the documents show an outsize police response to a funeral.

“This happened at a point when this community, Houston, and George Floyd’s family were mourning brutal loss of life at hand of police officers,” said Shaw Drake, policy counsel of ACLU of Texas Border Rights Center, “and the police response was to put snipers on roofs.”

Ultimately, the event had 20 people treated for heat stroke and one altercation that was peacefully resolved between the parties.  Good thing there were 475 additional officers brought in and 800 national guard...

Unfortunately the "Law-and-Order" crowd will crow that only this overwhelming show of law enforcement stopped it from becoming total mayhem.  REfuting that is trying to prove a negative

Anyone following the NYT series on Trump’s finances? This all sounds shady as hell. Also clear that he has not been rich in quite a while.

Fearless Leader called into Fox and he sounded congested and was coughing.  On that video yesterday it was in front of a green screen, the tree movements were repeat looping every three seconds.  The steroids must be wearing off, he isn't out of the woods yet.

Chances are he won't make the Florida event tomorrow. No way he shows up coughing and looking weak in front of a crowd.

If it weren't for Covid, the SCOTUS vacancy, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Whitmer, another hurricane striking Louisianna and the unprecedented scope of this year's wildfires - I think these latest developments about Trump's finances would be getting a ton more airtime.

In the last few weeks we've learned Trump
  • Got a $21MM tax break based on a highly questionable assessment of his VA property by a private company with close ties to the Trump Organization
  • Paid just $750 in taxes in '16 and '17
  • Paid zero taxes in 10 of the last 15 years
  • Has almost $300MM in unsecured loans coming due in the next few years
  • Is under investigation for a $72.9MM tax refund
  • His marque properties in Doral,FL, Turnberry, SCotland and Washington DC are all running deeply in the red, each to the tune of tens of million$

It's almost like he's intentionally creating these other news stories to distract the media from this one thing.

If it weren't for all those dangerous cops, George Floyd would have come back to life again and jumped out of his coffin. Don't believe it? Prove the opposite!

I don't think there's a way he doesn't avoid prison short of dying or fleeing to a country with no extradition laws. There is just so much there, so many crimes committed, that they're going to catch up to him. Biden has already said that he won't pardon Trump...which explains even more why he's trying everything and anything to cheat to win so that he can retain his immunity for 4 more years

Are you saying this is a surprise to you?  That has been the angle, pretty well understood, for years.   It is just because Fox crowd paints it as conspiracy that some people felt it was made up, but a con man is always playing the long game.

Struggling despite his insistence that the USSS and the campaign stay there as often as possible. There are countless examples of the past three years of Trump using the taxpayer and his reelection campaign to subsidize his businesses.

Not at all a surprise. Pretty much everything he's done for his entire presidency is to set himself up to be re-elected for one (or more) terms to avoid prosecution and to continue to enrich himself and his family. Disgusting and illegal...but not surprising

He's made comments def not only is he entitled to a 2nd term, but maybe more than that.

9/13/20 "And 52 days from now we're going to win Nevada, and we're going to win four more years in the White House," Trump told the mostly maskless, non-socially-distant crowd of his supporters on Saturday. "And then after that, we'll negotiate, right? Because we're probably — based on the way we were treated — we are probably entitled to another four after that."

8/2020 "We are going to win four more years," Trump said at a rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on Monday. "And then after that, we'll go for another four years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years."

In addition to saying he likes the ring of "president for life" and that he will be in office 10-14 years, that he's due an extra 2 years because of "distractions from the Mueller investigation" etc

In early 2017 I was making the prediction that Trump would try for and be elected to a third term. Not because I liked that he was President, but because I sensed within him a willingness to shatter norms and legal precedents when he felt they were impairing his goals.

Holy cow, took a small gander at Trump's Florida rally and it was a stadium packed with people shoulder to shoulder, not wearing masks, and cheering/chanting/yelling!  SNL said it best, Trump can survive a near-death experience and learn nothing from it - it's like watching someone smoke through the hole in their throat...

He didn't survive it. He clearly beat it, stomped it, and proved how biologically gifted and awesome he is. He'll tell you all about it.

Yes, but he only cares about himself - not about his constituents. He has been told that he is immune so therefore there is no reason for any precautions at his events. He even made a big deal of it during his speech at the rally and he said he would walk through the crowd and kiss all the people, because covid can't hurt him anymore.

Trump was right! There will be voting frauds everywhere! It's already starting, just look, here:

https://www.ocregister.com/2020/10/11/unofficial-ballot-drop-boxes-popping-up-throughout-the-state-worry-elections-officials/
Quote
In a photo posted to social media last week, a young man wearing a mask with Orange County congressional candidate Michelle Steel’s name on it is holding a mail ballot and giving a thumbs up next to a box about the size of a file cabinet labeled “Official ballot drop off box.”

The post, from Jordan Tygh, a regional field director for the California Republican Party, encouraged people to message him for “convenient locations” to drop their own ballots.

The problem is the drop box in the photo is not official – and it could be against the law.


The California Secretary of State has received reports in recent days about possible unauthorized ballot drop boxes in Fresno, Los Angeles and Orange counties, agency spokesman Sam Mahood said Sunday evening. Reports place such boxes at local political party offices, candidate headquarters and churches.

Also, not surprisingly:

You would think he needs all the voters he can get. It is not a good idea to make your voters sick or dead.

According to Vanity Fair, Trump didn't bother with a plan to deal with the virus because Jared Kushner thought it would only affect democratic party voters.

Maybe he just wants them to receive the same blessing from God that he received.

What a thoughtful caring person.

I'm sure it's possible to build a list of good things that came out of the Clinton Era and place that list right alongside the bad. The Lewinsky affair was a needless risk to his Presidency and a taint on the Office. No one could say they hadn't been warned that he was capable of that sort of thing.

Won't it be great if there is no Trump outrage of the day? He moves on, he goes to jail for tax fraud or simply he fades into the background b/c nobody cares anymore. I can be hopeful.

Yes, yes indeed! To listen to a leader who is coherent and works with/for the people and not against would be awesome! To listen to a president that doesn't hurl insults and derogatory nicknames for his opponents would be so refreshing! To get rid of a wanna be reality tv star clown would be a win win!

I would so enjoy not being embarrassed by our president's abysmally immature, narcissistic, and cruel behavior. It's been almost 4 years and I've nearly forgotten what it was like not to be ashamed of our federal leadership.

And no more Tweets!  Twitter is bad enough when celebrities implode, but a Twitter-happy President has been terrifying.  Tweeting to “little rocket man” that his Nuke button is bigger and ‘actually works’ has to be rock bottom for the US.

They all sound more professional than Trump - every last one of them.

I caught a bit of Fox news walking down the hall today and it sounded like "Biden Jr and a laptop repair shop, something with Ukraine, and none of it is confirmed, but we're going to talk about this for an hour." 

Whatever this is, it is courtesy of Pompeo since Barr is no longer the favored attack dog.

It's probably as legit as the unmasking "scandal."

Someone points out in the comments that COVID affects minorities more severely. How convenient for a president who apparently prefers to be surrounded by Caucasian peoples.

Having a President that encourages conspiracy theories, the rise of QAnon is especially troubling - QAnon is Tearing Families Apart

After watching Netflix's 'The Social Dilemma', it is yet another strike against this administration.  Humanity needs to truly evaluate our issues like addiction to electronics and despoiling our natural environment, but instead we are doubling down by turning a blind eye to companies benefiting from social media addiction and environmental deregulation (yay, $1 per share extra profit at the expense of no drinkable water).  This future is bleak, and yet we stumble toward it like zombies...

Talk about wrapping things up in a nice bow. Trump gets sick, but gets over it in 3 days (and you can too if only the FDA would stop stonewalling his miracle drugs). Melania gets sick, but gets over it in a week with diet and exercise (because fuck you medical science), Barron gets sick, but barely felt it because kids are immunity factories (so why are school districts needlessly ruining our children?) The First Family's response to COVID scores a full BINGO card of everything he's been shouting about the virus. It's too good to be true.

OP here. Indeed many of the outrages that have been featured in the year of this thread (has it already been a year? Felt like six) are tweets of the President.

What made them outrageous wasn't that they were tweeted. It was the content of the statements, and what they reflected about the beliefs of the person who issued them.

I think we're stuck with twitter. We need to improve the temperament of the President who is using it.

Luck of the devil, you might say.
