If you're wondering why my tone implies that the primary is basically resolved, here are our polling averages for the 4 states voting on Tuesday:

FL: Biden +42.8
IL: Biden +29.9
OH: Biden +24.6
AZ: Biden +24.5

I really dislike this misnomer that the Second Amendment is "under siege." It's a really big deal/issue out where I live, to the extent that it makes many vote right wing, and I wish democrats would do something to try to disspell it as a major issue. 

I thought Biden said he is a gun owner and gun guy? Guns and abortions' will always be mentioned in election years.

You talk about a crazy ### year - we are not even to the quarter pole yet, and already:

1.  Soleimani strike - near war with Iran

2.  Impeachment/Acquittal of the President

3.  Global pandemic disrupting societies and economies.

Holy ####, that feels like it's been 15 years since January. What even is reality anymore?

(Not so) Fun Fact:  :(

The Dow closed at 19,827.25 on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, 2017.

The Dow closed at 19,173.98 today.

The Dow has now erased all of the gains made during Trump's presidency.

With some of the this information, particularly: 

And

Reaffirms the theory Trump has been completely underwater for years only kept afloat by Russian oligarch money laundered through Deutsche Bank. 

After only two weeks of limited business, Trump can't make his property loan payments to Deutsche Bank. 

I thought he was a billionaire.

Setting himself up to qualify for some of that stimulus...yeah yeah it says he can't...of course, he claims he won't comply with the IG requirements anyway when it comes to oversight. This is why I support what Pelosi is bringing up as a committee for oversight of all of this.

Is there a general corruption thread? Or is this the catch all since Trump is pretty much a synonym?

GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz may have violated House rules by shelling out $184,000 in taxpayer funds to rent office space from a longtime friend and donor

Said he was paying below market rate. Amended that later to state he’s at or above MR.

DC commercial rents for Class A space is currently $60. Since 2017 Gaetz has been paying $20 psf.

I know, but I think we may revert to this thread on occasion when we remember back to the crazy trump years sometimes in the future, not so much the specific threads on topical stuff.

Anyway, y'all are slackers and you know it!

What was the best career round of golf for Kim Jong-il? Wasn’t it like a 34 with 5 holes in one?

Thought of that this morning.

White House officials say Trump works so hard he often misses lunch

By Steven Nelson and Ebony Bowden 
April 26, 2020 | 5:44pm 

President Trump’s schedule is so packed amid the coronavirus crisis that he sometimes skips lunch, his aides told The Post — refuting a report that the commander-in-chief spends his days obsessing over TV coverage and eating fries.

White House staffers said the president works around the clock and can make five dozen work-related calls a day during the pandemic.

“I can tell you that the biggest concern I have as a new chief of staff is making sure he gets some time to get a quick bite to eat,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told The Post.

He said that Trump recently called him at 3:19 a.m. He wasn’t expecting the call and was asleep when the phone rang.

“I can tell you that he will go back in and have a lunch just off the Oval Office and more times than not it is interrupted by several phone calls,” Meadows said. “If he gets more than 10 minutes of time in a given day I haven’t seen in the five weeks I’ve been here.” 

A different White House official said that Trump, some days, doesn’t eat lunch.

“There are times when lunch isn’t even a thought,” the official said. “A lot of time there’s either no time for lunch or there is 10 minutes for lunch.”

An account in The New York Times that claimed Trump lingers in his bedroom as late as noon infuriated the president, who tweeted Sunday, “I will often be in the Oval Office late into the night & read & see that I am angrily eating a hamburger & Diet Coke in my bedroom.”

“I work from early in the morning until late at night,” the president tweeted.

Another White House official provided The Post with data on recent presidential phone calls, which they said attest to his packed schedule.

On Wednesday, Trump made about two dozen morning calls starting with a conversation around 6:30 a.m. with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, according to the official.

On Thursday morning, Trump made 18 work-related calls from his private quarters, including four to foreign leaders, which can be lengthy due to translation and a broad range of topics. On Friday, he began the day with another four callswith foreign leaders.

Trump returned to the White House residence at 9 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the official. On Thursday night, he made 11 work calls. On Wednesday night, he was calling until 11:30 p.m. and spoke with a governor, a senator and a congressman.

Trump has meetings and calls during his time in the Oval Office. On Thursday, he took nearly three dozen calls.

“He’ll call up until late evening or midnight on a fairly regular basis,” Meadows said.

At night, “normally he will get six or seven calls from members [of Congress] or business leaders or community leaders, so oftentimes what he will do is go up to the residence and have the White House operator literally do back to back calls,” Meadows said.

If Trump has something on his mind, he prefers to call right away. “When he calls in the evening or the early morning it’s really with a pressing issue that demands immediate action,” Meadows said.

Morning phone calls from the residence are routine for Trump.

“I get phone calls from him early in the morning and at the end of the day,” said Peter Navarro, director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy.

“I think I work hard. I put in probably 12 hour days seven days a week and he runs circles around all of us,” Navarro said. “He never seems to tire. So this idea that he’s not working hard is just so absurd. Note to the New York Times: spending time in the morning reading all of the material that’s given to him by his staff secretary, as well as virtually all of the newspapers, that’s work. That’s not kicking back with a croissant.”

The best part of that article is the last sentence where Navarro discusses all the reading that Trump supposedly does.

The president's re-election campaign has ordered red, Trump-branded face masks for supporters. Campaign officials have discussed giving away the masks at events or in return for donations.

 

:(

Oh my. And I thought all those red hats at rallies was creepy.

Giving Trump branded red face masks in return for donations? One might argue that is exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic to use as a profitable branding opportunity.

Not just any good people, I'd love to see Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or the Black Panthers carry weapons into any state house.

*Ironically weapons are not allowed in the White House or Capital building.

At any state house? Can you imagine if the Black Lives Matter protesters had all openly carried guns at their rallies what the reaction would have been? That would have called been an incitement to violence by those on the right.

The only thing that matters to the Trump campaign is money. I am literally receiving 6 emails and 2 texts PER DAY asking for donations. Everything from "Cheating Hillary just endorsed Sleepy Joe! You need to make a donation to the President now!" to "It's Melania's birthday...please sign her birthday card and make a donation to the President now!" I'd hate to think what I'd be getting if I ever, you know, actually donated to them.

I think Donald is seeing a yuge potential payday in leftover campaign funds.

I think his campaign is desperately trying to get as much money as possible in now. As the effects of the pandemic expand, and his mis-characterizations become more obvious, less and less people will be willing to contribute to him, so he needs to get it before it reaches that stage.
