Biden: “Guys like me, the first in my family to go to college… we are as good as anybody else, and guys like Trump, who inherited everything and squandered what they inherited, are the people I’ve always had a problem with”

  1. last thread sturge came up with a great bumper sticker / campaign poster line:

    It won’t kill you to Vote for Biden

  2. from NYTimes best of late night column:

    The hosts were particularly amazed when Trump seemed to blame Joe Biden for the lack of a national mask mandate.
    “Yeah, Trump has a good point here — why hasn’t Joe Biden instituted a national mask mandate? And don’t say it’s because he’s not the president and doesn’t have any power — that’s not an excuse!” — TREVOR NOAH
    “Even more upsetting, in response Joe Biden was like, ‘Wait, am I the president?’” — JIMMY FALLON
    “After a town hall participant confronted President Trump last night over his lack of support for a national face mask mandate, Trump said, quote, ‘There are a lot of people that think that masks are not good.’ It’s true. I mean, not as many as there used to be, of course.’” — SETH MEYERS
    “Look, guys, between this and blaming riots on Joe Biden, either Trump is delusional, or he’s slowly trying to Jedi-mind-trick America into thinking that Biden has been president this whole time. [Imitating Trump] ‘Guys, if you want four more years of this disaster, by all means, re-elect President Biden. You saw how crazy it was. Maybe this time you should pick an outsider.’” — TREVOR NOAH

  3. CNBC:

    The U.S. Postal Service had drafted a press release announcing plans to send 650 million masks out across the U.S. early in the coronavirus crisis, but the White House ultimately abandoned the plan, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
    The plan would have sent a pack of five reusable masks to every residential address in the country, the Post reported, citing one of thousands of internal post office documents obtained by watchdog group American Oversight.
    “Our organization is uniquely suited to undertake this historic mission of delivering face coverings to every American household in the fight against the COVID-19 virus,” then-Postmaster General and CEO Megan J. Brennan said in the scrapped news release, which was dated to be released in April.
    Brennan was succeeded in the summer by Louis DeJoy, whose drastic cost-cutting measures at the government agency have sparked controversy in advance of the 2020 election.

  4. So, not only does trump surround himself with the worst kind of small-thinkers, but even when a good idea does happen to fall into his lap, he rejects it.

  5. sure hope more folks who were at that meeting and heard D’ump say this would speak up and verify it.   another good bumper sticker could be made out of some how contrasting hillary’s “deplorables” to his “disgusting people” label for his base. 

    business insider:

    “When we were in a task-force meeting, the president said, ‘Maybe this COVID thing is a good thing — I don’t like shaking hands with people. I don’t have to shake hands with these disgusting people,'” Troye says in the two-minute video

  6. This time if the red states secede, let’s not do anything about it.

    If we took out the red states, we go from 27th to 7th in the world in education Divorce rate: 61% Red, 39% Blue Crime rate: 6x more per capita for Red Taxes: Blue states’ would decrease 12-15% if they didn’t have to subsidize Red states

  7. One of the few moments i heard last might was the female farmer who wanted to know why she couldn’t pollute more.
    “Your whole state is toxic and causes cancer” is why, but Joe can’t say that.

    He also missed an opportunity by not extending a White House visit to her if he’s elected.

  8. Park Avenue, Fifth Avenue =  the same. 
    Glad that Biden keeps reminding folks that he is NOT president, yet. trumpity IS the president. That is a big example of trumpitiy’s GASLIGHTING!  So, SO obvious.

  9. The polls are great  Now we have to make sure no one stops Biden voters from voting.   We live in a  vote by mail precinct this year we are going to drop the ballots at the Board of Elections 

  10. Jamie… I have Howard Zinn’s book of a People’s History…   it’s in a bookcase with a lot of other…   to be read…  someday…  books.  🙂

  11. Trumps new slogan is “Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!” because that’s how many you need to make ends meet in his “gig economy”.

  12. What a day.  SFB learns that Puerto Rico is American and those displaced by his deliberate hate from their island now live in Florida. Oh, they can vote.  I wonder which military base is going to lose the money for schools to fund this campaign promise?
    Now that Putin has talked SFB into doing indoctrination work in schools the question is whether to do those in Russian or German.
    With the latest former SFB administration person endorsing Biden something is different.  She is not holding back on anything because she fears the orange rind.  His ranting and raving and purple rages have no effect on her.  He cannot do anything to her and she knows it.  We should be seeing a lot more of these people, including some just quitting the WH so they can say “Vote Biden” now that they see this.

  13. CDC steps up a little. Wapo.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday reversed a heavily criticized guidance it issued last month about who should be tested for the novel coronavirus. The agency updated its recommendation to call for testing anyone — including people without symptoms — who has been in close contact with someone diagnosed with covid-19, the disease caused by the virus.

    The change took place after the agency was directed last month by the White House Coronavirus Task Force to shift its testing guidance. The Task Force-directed guidance said those without symptoms “do not necessarily need a test.”

    AS I said yesterday, Redfield’s neck is next on the D’ump chopping block.

  14. And in the “How stupid? This stupid.” category….  (Wapo)

    When coronavirus cases began increasing in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in late July, Pastor Paul Van Noy prayed with his congregation that the city council would not pass a mask mandate.

    “I don’t want to be told I have to wear a mask,” he said at the lectern. “We’re adults and we don’t need the government to tell us what to do.”

    A little over a month later, he and his wife contracted the virus and he has landed in the hospital’s intensive care unit struggling to breathe, he said in a statement this week.

    “I haven’t taken this Covid seriously enough,” his wife, Brenda, said on Facebook Sept. 4, shortly after her husband was admitted to the ICU.

    A self-proclaimed “no-masker,” Van Noy told the worshipers gathered at Candlelight Christian Fellowship on July 22 that his first inclination was to resist complying with a local mask ordinance. After some consideration, he said the congregation was bound by the Bible to follow any ordinance requiring masks passed by their local leaders — but he prayed it would not come to that.

    Stupid is as stupid does, sir.  Someone should make that idiot from the D’ump rally who said God would take care of him read this – assuming he can.

  15. So, i guess trump doesn’t realize that almost half of the voters in any given “Blue State” are Republicans?   Either that, or he doesn’t care🤷‍♂️

    Spoton, “where are the deficit hawks”? Oh, they will be back should Biden and Dems win. I say Dems tell them to fu*k all the way off!
