You can easily assign personal responsibility to both.

Of course in a big way but an interesting post from the washington examiner puts Trump near neck and neck with Biden despite everything.

Fwiw I don't not know the politics of the Washington Examiner. But this does seem to imply that Trump isn't out of it yet despite CNN coverage to the contrary.

That seems to be an update on an earlier one ... I wish I knew where these are being shown / seen. I heard some of them were being played on Fox News; I hope this one is.

I wonder just what the situation will be in the days leading to the election. I think that will have a huge effect on the result. If deaths are rising still, in places like FL and AZ, then I think those states will flip blue. But if those states, and most other states, are on clear downwards trajectory then I wonder whether he will be able to spin the situation in his favor.

Shouldn't all the 2nd Amendment Militia types be out in Portland right now, trying to push back a Tyrannical Federal Government?

The Bundy family and fellow travelers, are noticeable, in Portland, by their absence.

When daddy says that the 'Negroes should get out cotton picking' I should imagine that there aren't many family members with the cahunas large enough to attend mass public gatherings!

Distraction via the salacious provides a needed break from the recurring existential threats ( Portland, particularly last night ) with which the current White House occupant confronts us.
Which is why I find myself musing about …

Trump's lips to Madam's ears?

Even if she’s got the goods on him and could be tempted to spill - her trial doesn't start till next July.
There’d be no effect on the November election as it's unlikely she’d cop a plea (which might lead to leaks), before then.
Does Maxwell have anything Trump related that would be germane to what the prosecutors seek to buttress their charges? Possibly…

One of the first victims to emerge when Epstein was initially nabbed back in the 90’s, in Florida - was a woman who’d been a teen-aged Mar-A-Lago locker room attendant at Trump’s resort. That’s where she became ensnared by club members Epstein and Maxwell, Trump’s Palm Beach neighbours.

Loose lips
Sink ships (of state), and so…

If Trump wins in November, and provided “mum’s the word” for Maxwell - he’ll “Roger Stone-ize” the Madam should she be found guilty, and free her with an “I alone can fix it” pardon.
(Which, in this instance, would be true).
If Trump loses in November and Madam squeals - anything Trump related will increase the geyser of slop set to burst, when the New York State law suits (plural!) regurgitate, next year.

Can Covid face coverings mask the stench?
If we’re lucky - we won’t still be wearing them by then.
Best keep them handy for re-purposing

now...back to "reality"....what's he gonna dump at today's "Corona Conference"?

ok...here we go......click link below for all 17 minutes

@BarackObama
I sat down with
@JoeBiden
to talk about the most pressing issues of our time. He's exactly the leader we need right now––with the vision, the plans, and character to move America forward.

The most important part of an IG investigation is to update your resume first.

Perhaps they should disguise themselves as Antifa and then they could do whatever they want to and everybody would be happy.

You don't like people taking a stance against white supremacist, anti-semetic, bigots?
