    Trumps comments today:

    "So we’re down in this territory," Trump said, pointing to a graph that the White House first unveiled in the spring which showed two estimated ranges of possible death tolls depending on efforts to slow the spread of the virus. "And that’s despite the fact that the blue states had had tremendous death rates. If you take the blue states out, we’re at a level that I don’t think anybody in the world would be at. We’re really at a very low level. But some of the states, they were blue states and blue state-managed."

    And Schumer's response:

    "Yes Mr. President, if you don't count the total number of Americans who have died you might think it's not so bad," Schumer said. "If you close your eyes and pretend that half of the country doesn't exist some might think you didn't do such a spectacularly awful job."

    New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave a scathing rebuke of Trump on the Senate floor Thursday morning, asking twice during his remarks "what kind of a demented person" would say that American lives lost in certain states don't count.
    Press On Regardless

    I believe the correct pronunciation is ‘lusten ep’.

    That will explain repeater telling us how badly Biden has handled the pandemic.

    So Trumps scotus pick will be rammed through with Mitt Romney stating he’s on board to confirm a pick by a man he voted to impeach because he’s a crook... Ummm

    Per Chris Hayes:

    ”The big pro-life victory comes on top of a mountain of American deaths. But still worth it for Romney et al. Still worth it.”

    ^ Following on ...



    Sen. Mitt Romney supports voting to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court, all but ensuring President Trump has the backing needed to push the nomination over objections that it's too close to the election. (Sept. 22)

    Pity the ‘smart, wonderful’ silly old trout didn’t resign earlier.
    When she was encouraged to resign.
    But it was all about her it seems.

    Trump met with boos and chants of ‘vote him out’ outside the Supreme Court

    President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump went to the Supreme Court Thursday morning to pay their respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg but they were met with a very unfriendly audience.


    Trump was seen with his eyes closed swaying from side to side, as a slow stream of boos threaded through the audience growing louder and louder. The crowd then began to chant “vote him out” more and more fiercely.


    Trump then hung his head and walked inside the building rather than listen to the jeers.

    A whopping 62 percent of Americans don’t want Trump to appoint the next Supreme Court justice, according to a Reuters poll posted earlier this week.

    Trump announces he’s mailing 33 million seniors $200 cash cards — before 2020 election

    On Thursday, at his health care address in Charlotte, North Carolina, President Donald Trump announced that he would send out a $200 cash card to 33 million Medicare recipients ahead of the election.


    “The America First Healthcare Plan includes another historic provision to benefit our great seniors,” said Trump. “Under my plan, 33 million Medicare beneficiaries will soon receive a card in the mail containing $200 that they can use to help pay for prescription drugs. Nobody’s seen this before. The cards will be mailed out in the coming weeks. I will always take care of our wonderful senior citizens. Joe Biden won’t be doing this.”


    It is unclear what authority Trump is invoking to enact this giveaway.


    The president has trailed Biden with voters over 65 in a number of recent polls, struggling with a voting bloc that in the past couple of elections has backed Republicans.

    Clever move. If the dems oppose it in any way it'll definitely go against them.
