    Did Trump Call McCain a Loser?
    I am sorry Mr. President with all due respect. My father was a hero. He fought with honor. And should my son become a marine as he wants to do he will serve with honor. And he will make me and him proud.(as if I was not proud of him already.)

    Trump's attitude towards military personnel who were captured or killed in war was known about at the time of the last election. It is not news. People overlooked this and voted for him anyway. Trump will deny that he said something as soon as he discovers that what he said was problematic, no matter the evidence that he said it. Still, that has not affected his popularity either. Trump has no integrity, no consistency, and cannot seem to remember his own recent remarks, let alone those that he made some time ago (I think this appears to be a genuine cognitive shortcoming on his part, rather than calculated lying).

    There are so many shortcomings with the two main candidates, too many to list, both completely unfit to lead this country...There is a third choice however, if enough people in the right states voted for Jo Jorgensen it could show Congress that their constituents need real change in our government one way or another...

    Jo Jorgensen for President | Libertarian Candidate

    Not voting is also voting.

    When you have bad candidate whose politics you may not agree with VS. A really bad candidate whose integrity comes into question continuously - Maybe it is time to vote for the lesser of two evils ???

    As far as third party candidates such as Libertarian, Green Party, or whatever,
    do they even get enough votes to have any meaning whatsoever?

    The last third party candidate who ever put a dent in the mainstream, Ross Perot did in the '90s

    the people who are most qualified to be President are probably the ones smart enough to stay the hell away from it

    Is the press out to get Donald Trump? Or, can this be true?:

    President Trump has made more than 20,000 false or misleading claims

    "
    July 13, 2020 at 12:00 a.m. PDT
    It took President Trump 827 days to top 10,000 false and misleading claims in The Fact Checker’s database, an average of 12 claims a day.

    But on July 9, just 440 days later, the president crossed the 20,000 mark — an average of 23 claims a day over a 14-month period, which included the events leading up to Trump’s impeachment trial, the worldwide pandemic that crashed the economy and the eruption of protests over the death of George Floyd in police custody.

    The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a whole new genre of Trump’s falsehoods. The category in just a few months has reached nearly 1,000 claims, more than his tax claims combined. Trump’s false or misleading claims about the impeachment investigation — and the events surrounding it — contributed almost 1,200 entries to the database.

    The notion that Trump would exceed 20,000 claims before he finished his term appeared ludicrous when The Fact Checker started this project during the president’s.........."

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...e-more-than-20000-false-or-misleading-claims/

    Much as we all know Trump's tendency to play loose with the truth

    - I find if hard to believe that he could have told 20,000 lies
    - Or, is The Washington Post lying?

    How could he have told 20 thousand lies when he never said 20 thousand things?

    All of it is BS, all of it, no matter what your beliefs are.

    I take whatever is in the current news cycle and divide by 2. Then throw away the remainder.
    If it's still around in a month then maybe there was something to it.......

    Thing is, the Republican party has so many fine men. Why can not it just dump the Trump?

    Tramp is a spoiled brat, bully, draft dodger, and tax dodger, who is dumb on the top because he's even hiding his poor school record. He is the worst possible choice for a leader of the free world.

    I sometimes would wonder what would happen if a big time mobster, say like Al Capone ran for President?

    All the president’s (convicted) men

    "
    Following Roger Stone’s conviction earlier today, NPR took note of the many criminals in Donald Trump’s immediate orbit.

    Stone was the second close political adviser of Trump’s brought to trial on charges by Mueller’s team. The other was Stone’s former business partner, Paul Manafort, who was convicted in 2018 in a tax and bank fraud trial in Virginia. Manafort later pleaded guilty to other charges in a related case brought by Mueller in Washington, D.C. He is now in prison.

    Six others – including Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to charges that arose from the special counsel’s probe.........."

    "
    Of course, given recent events, it’s hardly unreasonable to wonder whether he cares about crime or about surrounding himself with people who’ve committed crimes?


    Let’s take stock of the number of presidential aides and associates who’ve faced felony charges:

    * Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, has been convinced on multiple counts.

    * Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and business associate, is in prison.

    * Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, is in prison.

    * Rick Gates, Trump’s former campaign vice chairman, has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.

    * Michael Flynn, Trump’s former White House national security advisor, has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.

    * George Papadopoulos, Trump’s former campaign advisor on foreign policy, has already served his prison sentence.

    * Alex van der Zwaan, a lawyer who worked with Manafort and Gates. has already served his prison sentence.

    And those are just the top-line indictments. It doesn’t include the prison sentence for Richard Pinedo, the charges against related characters such as Sam Patten and Maria Butina, and, of course, the many Russian individuals and entities who’ve been indicted by the special counsel.........."

    All the president's (convicted) men


    And you know I could forgive it all 'IF' , as it now stands, the United States wasn't number ONE Worldwide
    for Coronavirus deaths and inability to to control the pandemic.

    Not Trump's fault you say? True, but he is the President and 'the buck stops there' !!!!!
