The Trump Years- Every day something more shocking than the last!

I wonder how badly Trump has hurt his branding name over the last 3-1/2 years.  There's no doubt that outside the US, the Trump name is no longer associated with higher standards and prestige.  I could see some hotels definitely changing their name to remove the Trump brand.

It will be neat to see what happens inside the US.  Outside of dense Republican areas, I can see the brand dying out.

I think the Trump brand is pretty much done but the connections and lingering influence are likely more valuable particularly considering the positions he gave his family members.

If it weren't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all! I'll gladly take no luck.

My post was in reference to George Bush not supporting Trump.

Does this mean you think George Bush is one of the good guys? I assure you, he isn't. He is a war criminal.

So you’ve finally made up your mind, eh? 
 

Not quite there for me. I was leaning heavily for Trump but now I might have to vote for Biden just because you’ve pushed me into it. 
 

I’ll make a final decision later, all depends what happens.

Well, here it is, for the record.

I guess his point is that the May job numbers means that cops will start treating people fairly now, and that George Floyd didn't die in vain because now our economy is better.

The first part of the statement has nothing to do with the 2nd part of the statement. No issue with the first part, but not sure I get what Floyd would be happy with regarding a week of economic numbers.

Colin Powell is going to vote for Biden.

Anyone have a list of prominent Republicans that are not voting for Trump?

Seriously, if you could go back 8 years and try to warn people that in 2020 there was a worldwide pandemic that shut the world down, there were protests and riots throughout the country, we had been in the brink of WWIII just months ago, and that President Donald Trump was running for his second term, how long would it have been before you were locked up in an asylum?

Lost in the outrage over the absurd tweet about the elderly protester in Buffalo is the news that Stephen Miller(!) is penning Don's upcoming national address and that White House officials are "leaking" that Venezuelan socialists are linking up with BLM protesters in south Florida.

That was yesterday.

Today we’ve on the #votersuppression in Georgia.

Of the 7 largest voter precincts in Atlanta, 4 currently don’t have a single working voting machine.

• 6 hour lines to vote
• Hundreds of polling places closed 
• States unprepared for mail voting  
• Huge numbers of ballots rejected

Trump campaign demands CNN apologize for poll that shows Biden leading

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's campaign is demanding CNN retract and apologize for a recent poll that showed him well behind presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The demand, coming in the form of a cease and desist letter to CNN President Jeff Zucker, was immediately rejected by the network.

"We stand by our poll," said Matt Dornic, a CNN spokesman.

Hopefully he doesn't give a national address, it's likely just going to make things worse. Specifically, he's going to do the "sides" thing, he will say that liberal democrats want to abolish the police, take away the 2nd amendment rights, etc. He's already been saying this, so I find it unlikely he's going to do a 180 to "bring people together". Can he do the togetherness thing? I don't think so. Therefore, just don't do the speech. The nation is better without it. We know what he is by now, so pro or con, just leave well enough alone on this issue.

The Trump administration is stuck on elections because he hasn’t gotten any support from Congress, the red states or the military for his authoritarian bull####. Meanwhile the whole thrust for a month and through the election is and will be that America is coming back strong, everyone get back to normal, no need for masks and the like. - I think the strategy like we saw in GA but in key counties and precincts is where and how they’ll try to pull off a quick one.

Congress controls the election date, but they don't control the presidential election method.

Each individual state has the power to cancel its popular vote for president, and instead have their electors chosen by state legislators or another method of their inventing.

Which is kinda what scares some observers of this administration. Trump will try to do things that presidents traditionally don't do. But who's gonna stop him? Maybe worse, who's gonna support him? (I think some red state governors/legislatures will do whatever he asks them to do if it means him getting re-elected)

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/i-should-not-have-been-there-milley-apologizes-role-trump-n1229876?cid=sm_npd_ms_fb_mj
 

As many of you saw, the result of the photograph of me at Lafayette Square last week, that sparked a national debate about the role of the military in civil society," Milley said in a prerecorded address to the National Defense University. "I should not have been there. My presence in that moment, and in that environment, created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.

As a commissioned, uniformed officer, it was a mistake, that I have learned from, and I sincerely hope we all can learn from it," he continued. "We who wear the cloth of our nation come from the people of our nation. And we must hold dear the principle of an apolitical military that is so deeply rooted in the very essence of our Republic. And this is not easy. It takes time and work and effort. But it may be the most important thing each and every one of us does every single day.

When I first looked, I assumed it was someone trying to be funny and creating an absurd spoof.  I realized it's an actual Trump site.  Frightening.

As Mattis said, "Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us .... We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership."
