Trump goes on a totally unnecessary ride in his limousine to wave to supporters. 

Dr. Leana Wen, who used to be the health commissioner of Baltimore and now is a professor at GW, and who knows a thing or two about medicine, has said that if the President were her patient and went on this escapade, she'd order a psychiatric exam. 

Dr. James Phillips, an attending physician at Walter Reed: 

“Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die.” "For political theater,” the doctor added. “Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater.”

Meanwhile, the President said he's learned alot about Covid-19 (really?) and that he "gets it".  I'm so glad that after 7 months and 200,000+ deaths here that the President has learned about this, but it doesn't seem like his knowledge is particularly deep.

I was somehow able to hold off ill wishes after his diagnosis. But with this stunt, I’m good with him suffering greatly. Every shitty thing about this lowlife fecal stain was summed up yesterday. F him and his family.

Before, during, and after this stunt, I feel zero sympathy for 45 and all his Covid-denying minions.  I DO feel sorry for the 209,000 in America that have died because of his cavalier attitude, his cover ups, and his continued indifference.  

Now the Press Secretary has it.

As far as that little drive by stunt yesterday, my only hope is that the Secret Service used previously-infected personnel to sit in the SUV with the President.  My understanding is that a number of Secret Service members have gotten Covid over the last months, and if a few have recovered and returned to service, maybe they used those guys in the SUV?

Very cool. From the LA Times, "LONDON — Two women from different continents who happened to meet at a cafe in Puerto Rico were named winners of the Nobel Prize in chemistry Wednesday for their pioneering work on CRISPR, a gene-editing tool that gives scientists the power to change the behavior of living cells and potentially cure diseases.
UC Berkeley biochemist Jennifer A. Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier, director of the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens in Berlin, harnessed an ancient immune response found bacteria and other single-celled organisms and shaped it into an elegant pair of 'molecular scissors,' the Nobel Committee said. The tool has transformed the life sciences in just eight years."

Today the President has called Sen. Harris a “monster” and a “Communist”.  Today he has been critical of Bill Barr for not arresting more democrats and has been critical of Pompeo for not finding Hilary Clinton emails supposedly floating around the state department.
He has also criticized FBI director Wray for something, I think having to do with his not investigating voter fraud.
The man is totally unhinged.
You may not like Biden’s policies, but at least he is hinged.

To paraphrase a famous quip "Other than that, Mrs. Voter, how do you like the President?"

soooo regular violence is ok.

yea someone is really coming unhinged.  His mental acuity is definitely diminishing.

Not certain when the last time he was hinged was.  But the combination of new polls and still being sick, with possible side effects of dexamethasone thrown in, make this guy seem crazier now than he has ever been.  And that is saying quite a lot.

Regular violence like the "mostly" peaceful protests?  You all are a joke.  So selective and hypocritical.   For you...I'll refrain from copying and pasting...but Trump has condemned Neo-nazis and white nationals ad-nasuem.  It is just a fake narrative being pushed forward.  Maybe the governor of Michigan has over-stepped her authority.   Her actions do not warrant death threats however...but she's bad.

Isnt that the point. Any violence should be condemned. Not just extreme violence.  Not sure how you misread that but i am glad to see actually formulating your own words.  It gets tiring reading the same exact words lifted from a small subset of websites.

The stable genius, last night on Hannity:

"California is gonna have to ration water. You wanna know why? Because they send millions of gallons of water out to sea, out to the Pacific. Because they want to take care of certain little tiny fish, that aren't doing very well without water."

"they literally want to take buildings down and rebuild them with tiny little windows. OK, little windows so you can’t see out, can’t see the light.”

Yeah, he's not impacted by the virus and his treatment for it at all.  Though to be honest who could tell for sure?

Im always game for debate.  I just refuse to reply to webpages

Forget the cribbed notes. He does not debate. His posts, when not using racist and bigoted nicknames which parrot his hero, are not in any way debate techniques. They are so full of unproven assertions and logical fallacies they wouldn't make it past a junior high school debate club.

well, that's when he copy pastes from websites.  his individual wordings at least looks more tampered because what the Drumpf says is honestly downright insane.

Those Dems were quite foolish and embarrassing today at the ACB opening statements.  What a shameful lot...especially Booker.  That guy is a clown.

Booker and many other Democrats will soon be chairing Senate committees under a Biden government while owning the House.  Then American can start to heal from the nightmare of Donnie Dickhead and his flying monkees!

Just waiting at your computer to reply...and you would be wrong.  Biden can’t get ten people to show up anywhere.

Actually I'm watching the football game while tracking my email and fantasy football teams. Believe me, my life doesn't revolve around you!

As for Biden, he doesn't try to get big crowds nor does he need them.  Big crowds are irrelevant as elections are decided by votes. And according to every poll for the past 6 months, Biden has lots more of those than Trump.  Which is why Trump is trying to undermine the credibility of the vote, never mind the harm that does to faith American democracy and institutions.  But those big rallies will suppress the Republican vote when hundreds of attendees get Covid and are too sick to vote.  Or are dead.

Curious what you think Irwin,  would trump be a president or a private citizen in this instance in removing a protestor?

Shouldn't this fall under 1st amendment rights?

Trump uses government funds and property to campaign. Which is illegal. But leaving that aside, he was campaigning; and noisy or disruptive protesters are thrown out of campaign rallies frequently. Including campaign rallies from sitting Presidents. When I was 16 I went to a Clinton rally (1996) and a couple of protesters were thrown out.

I don't think that the first amendment permits a person to interrupt someone who is speaking to a political gathering, nor does it prohibit a person who is in charge of a rally from ejecting an unruly protester.  I suppose if it is a campaign rally then he is doing it in his capacity as a private person.

People should not be unruly. They should be the opposite. Ruly?
