  • Jimbo - Here is the text of the link that I provided.

    "Donald Trump publicly rebuked a second member of the White House coronavirus taskforce on Monday morning, calling Deborah Birx’s assessment of Covid-19’s spread “pathetic” in a tweet.

    Birx warned on Sunday that the coronavirus was entering a new phase in the US and infections were now “extraordinarily widespread” across the country, instead of clustering mainly in a clutch of states and big cities.

    That same day, the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, was critical of Birx in an interview with ABC’s This Week.

    The US has the world’s largest number of cases at 4.6m, or one-quarter of the global total, and 154,361 deaths. Black, Latino and Native communities are experiencing a disproportionate number of deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    But Trump said on Monday morning that it wasn’t the dismal figures which prompted Birx’s assessment, but Pelosi’s criticism. “In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!” Trump tweeted."


    • On the subject of water in Texas:

      Natural lakes have been a rare commodity in Texas. In fact, the state had only one natural lake, Caddo Lake in East Texas, that was formed by a log jam. A permanent dam was installed at the lake in the early 20th century.

        Guess that makes you a "strike out".
        Listen, dimwit, Texas isn't all limestone and mesquite, though it has it's share.
        The IGC plant in Marjorie has a lake that provides all the water they need.
        Here, read the sad story of Marjorie, Texas for yourself. It's the same story for most of the rest of the aluminum producers in the US. Electricity became too expensive due to competition from urban and rural development. The Rockdale plant did not own its own power source. The aluminum plant died in 2008 because the power plant's contract to them was too expensive and they wouldn't reduce it. A pissing contest. So Alcoa did what ARCO did in Montana: shut down and sold their contracted power to the rural/urban municipal developers for more money than they could sell aluminum. The power plant boys thought they could also sell it to developer demands when the contract to ALCOA ran out. Oops. They didn't expect the Clean Air Act to finally catch up. Also, clean power sources closer to those population centers provided more efficient and inexpensive energy than the dirty coal stuff. Now both plants have gone down the road. Marjorie is becoming a ghost town. Alcoa is not interested in doing business with the power plant now ... because it has shifted most of its business overseas (e.g. two reduction plants acquired in Russia). So Trump's tariff isn't going to make any difference to the out of work Texas folks ... until they try to buy stuff made of aluminum and have to pay a lot more.

        Again, tariffs aren't going to fix the problem with America's aluminum producers. It's just a fake look-good gimmick for Trump's "Make America Great Again" scheme. And it will backfire in a HUGE way. Very stupid. But he IS very stupid.



          The "Callous Morning News"?
          That libtard publication ain't even fit to line the parakeets cage.

          Trump stupid?
          He's outsmarted everybody, especially House Dimwitcrats!😂😂😂!


          • Honker mentioned the fact that Trump is very stupid.
            Here is a prime example.

            When President Donald Trump connected by phone last week with Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson — perhaps the only person in the party who can cut a nine-figure check to aid his reelection — the phone call unexpectedly turned contentious.

            The 87-year-old casino mogul had reached out to Trump to talk about the coronavirus relief bill and the economy. But then Trump brought the conversation around to the campaign and confronted Adelson about why he wasn’t doing more to bolster his reelection, according to three people with direct knowledge of the call. One of the people said it was apparent the president had no idea how much Adelson, who’s donated tens of millions of dollars to pro-Trump efforts over the years, had helped him. Adelson chose not to come back at Trump.

            When word of the call circulated afterward, Republican Party officials grew alarmed the president had antagonized one of his biggest benefactors at a precarious moment in his campaign. They rushed to smooth things over with him, but the damage may have been done."

              • This time the prognosticators are counting the ELECTORAL votes, and not just the popular vote.

                The first 2020 battleground electoral map by NBC News was released on Friday, showing Joe Biden holding the lead with 334 electoral votes.

                Donald Trump was trailing behind Mr Biden in the new forecasting with just 125 electoral votes. At least 270 votes in the Electoral College are required to secure a victory in the presidential elections.


                • Why it is so hard to get information about Russian meddling in U.S. elections.
                  Even our own intelligence reports are edited by the White House.

                        This should be good ... for some laughs. The late night comedians have been short on material lately. Step up to the trough fellas!

                        5:40 and no Trump, not even on Fox network. Guess Judge Judy was more important. Or maybe Fox decided to help his campaign by not broadcasting it.

                        • There was a shooting outside the White House and the Secret Service had to whisk Trump off to safety.


                          • Trump was saying that the Spanish flu Pandemic of 1918 ended the second World War because all the soldiers got sick.
                            And he is looking forward to the debates...

                            "President Donald Trump got history wrong on multiple counts Monday when he claimed that the “1917” Spanish flu pandemic likely led to the end of World War II ― which began more than two decades later.

                            “The closest thing is in 1917, they say, the great pandemic. It certainly was a terrible thing where they lost anywhere from 50 to 100 million people,” Trump said during his White House press briefing. “Probably ended the Second World War, all the soldiers were sick.”

                            Leading up to that comment, Trump had been praising his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 160,000 people in the U.S., claiming without evidence that without his ban on foreign travelers, millions more would be dead.

                            Trump has incorrectly referred to the year of the 1918 pandemic dozens of times, even though his own grandfather Frederick Trump died of it in New York City in 1918."



                            • Trump now claims to be so popular that he would have beaten George Washington in this election.



                              • I guess he could call that story "fake news" because he didn't actually say he would have beaten George Washington.
                                He said George Washington would have had a hard time beating him.
