This election there will be NO errors in judgement for those voting for him. It's exactly what they want. They want the corrupt incompetence to continue. Absolutely zero question about it. They love it and are completely fine with it.

Of course Trump can authorize governors to open up their states.  Its just like how I authorize  the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders to date other guys.

A vote for Trump in 2020 is such a statement at this point, assuming you've been paying attention to his performance in the role thus far.

While I agree with the "corrupt incompetence", this brush is both incorrect and not helpful.

Conservatives I know have a STRONG STRONG dis-belief in anything that comes from the mainstream media (except in many cases from FOX?!) A lot of bubble/group think as well, but folks on the left do that also. They honestly don't SEE the incompetence because they DO SEE some of the things they wanted. They see conservative judges appointed. They see deregulation. Many are disapointed in the federal corona response, but for the most part blame state/local governments more then the fed because they consider mandated masking a government over-reach anyway. While I disagree (VERY strongly in many areas) with them, we need to be careful painting them with the paintbrush you do here. It's every bit as wrong and counter-productive as the "radical" brush many of them use to paint anyone who wants to change anything

How much money have we wasted on Kushner...not just in this, but pretty much his entire role of getting talked up like he is going to do something...but nobody seems to know anything he has actually accomplished?  And throughout his role is he using/paying his college buddies like in this case?  And using funds to purchase stuff from people with ties to certain country's royal families?

Every description of him seems to be exactly that of how shady people run shady businesses.

This is the kind of thing many of us were trying to warn people about back in 2016 - Trump is incapable of performing the role of President, he's both incompetent and corrupt. Our only hope was that nothing major happened during his term. It was a huge error in judgement to vote for him then, it'll be an even greater error in judgement to vote for him now.

He's so hilarious though and tells it like it is! Plus he's macho! Show me another candidate that has been married three times and has cheated on all of them! 

Plus, Hillary didn't even bother standing up to Bill in public about him cheating on her. She has no moral compass!

Rep. Louie Gohmert has Covid19.

- He learned of it from a screening at the White House.

- He was at yesterday's Barr hearing, maskless.

eta - Apparently he met with the President and GOP lawmakers at the WH. (I guess they let him meet before the screening was complete).

Louie Gohmert. @replouiegohmert

I am taking #Hydroxychloroquine to treat my coronavirus diagnosis. It is what was decided as the best course of action between my doctor and me--not by government bureaucrats. How long until the tech tyrants censor this tweet?

 

 

hmm.  I wonder if this means that Rep. Gohmert is now for allowing women and their doctors to decide the best course of action, without interference from government bureaucrats.   🤔

Just to pump the brakes on Gohmert's claim of "I have a right to free speech!" victimhood: Arizona congressman Raul Grijalva tested positive for covid after chairing a hearing that Gohmert attended. “While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously,” Grijalva said.

Never mind that it doesn't work, was this drug ever intended for people with mildish symptoms outside the hospital even in the GOP's alternative multiverse?  I thought it was a "treatment" for people who were very sick.

And when he recovers like most people do, and like he would have done without HCQ, he’ll give the credit to HCQ and further politicize the pandemic.

Also, didn’t Trump take HCQ even though he didn’t get COVID-19?

He says he did, and if you want to play the percentages, that means he didn't.

Rep. Louie Gohmert's (R-Texas) daughter Caroline is disappointed her father "ignored medical expertise" and didn't wear a mask, and now has COVID-19, she said in a brief statement Sunday night. "This has been a heartbreaking battle [because] I love my dad and don't want him to die. Please please listen to medical experts. It's not worth following a president who has no remorse for leading his followers to an early grave."

Is he in the hospital or at serious risk right now?

Trump angry with his experts again (Dr. Binx this time) because they won’t toe the company line and say only what Trumps wants them to.  How dare they use their expertise to give advice to the general public (ie do their job).

There may be some family and HIPAA issues at play. I could find nothing on the net. His daughter has supported BLM and veterans against Trump on twitter.

It’s light on details right now and only seems to be a threat but something needs to happen now and I’m glad he’s applying pressure.

Such a dumb move, three months before the election.  He must be stubbornly insisting (although I doubt he's actually thinking this all through) that if he wins reelection, it will be on his terms.  That said, he keeps making attempts to message - pushing law and order; then sounding concerned about covid; etc.  But he's just so inherently incapable of adapting and/or maturing as a leader or, really, as a person.  Stick a fork in 'im.  It's over.

Apparently he's ok, or at least the same as he was before getting the virus

>> Gohmert released a video statement on Twitter saying, "The reports of my demise are a great deal premature" and noted he was asymptomatic.

"I don't have any of the symptoms that are listed as part of Covid-19, but apparently I have the Wuhan virus," he said.

Before his diagnosis, Gohmert had told CNN in June that he didn't wear a mask because he had been tested and he didn't yet have the virus. "But if I get it, you'll never see me without a mask," he offered.

Told that health experts say that people who don't have symptoms may be carrying the virus and can unknowingly spread it to others, Gohmert responded: "But I keep being tested and I don't have it. So I'm not afraid of you, but if I get it I'll wear a mask." <<

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/08/03/politics/louie-gohmert-daughter-masks-coronavirus/index.html

In Gohmert's video he blames his getting the virus on wearing a mask, the last 10 days or so. Too much touching of the mask apparently. Even though multiple videos show him not wearing a mask while walking behind Barr and at various times. And he has a law degree from Baylor?

Trump's Axios interview was on last night:

The last time I questioned Trump's intelligence I received a 3-month timeout for "trolling" so I'll just let the video speak for itself.

The man has to go. Not in November or January. Now.

that was the most bat#### insane thing i've ever watched

I did not vote for Trump in 2016.  I will not vote for Trump in 2020.  This administration could have shown more leadership socially on how to approach the virus.  They did present a plan for states to follow as they opened.  States didn't follow that plan.  Citizens didn't follow that plan.  Some of this can be laid at his feet, but all of it?  Come on.  Take some responsibility for yourselves and your own actions. 

As far as a response to this virus on an economic level?  The CARES Act and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act have impacted me and my business directly and are fantastic stimulus bills.  I received PPP funding quickly.  It allowed my business to reopen.  I have received additional stimulus funding today, deposited directly, after applying on 7/20.  These bills have allowed me to keep all of my employees.  Those employees all collected unemployment with additional federal funding during our closure and have all received federal stimulus payments.  

I know this is where we trash Trump, but these positive contributions cannot be denied.    Biden wouldn't have handled this any better.  Nobody could have prepared for this.
