    But, there are other exquisite idiots in politics. Here is Michail Grobatchev selling pizzas:

    In this age social media and search engines have more influence on elections than just qualities of contestants.

    Here is an article about how to rig any elections. It costs about $600,000 for a medium size South American country, but US principle is the same, only it would cost you a bit more:

    Hey wait a second, Joe said Hunter was a good boy and didn't do anything wrong. Isn't that good enough for you?
    Seems to have placated quite a few media outlets.

    Not commenting on DT's viability for reelection, just surprised by Turner's comment. The woman's a poet - and right.

    Don’t Count Trump Out

    Biden has suffered personal loss, which has made him a comforting figure to grieving Americans who have lost jobs and loved ones in the pandemic. Yet he still symbolizes a brand of establishment centrism that leaves some younger voters and some in the party’s activist wing uninspired.

    “We have to be true to ourselves and acknowledge that Biden is a mediocre, milquetoast, neoliberal centrist that we’ve been fighting against in the Democratic establishment,” Cornel West, the Harvard University professor and a Bernie Sanders supporter, told me.

    If Sanders’s primary voters stay home on Election Day out of pique, that could damage Biden’s chances, especially in must-win swing states.

    Nina Turner, a co-chair of the Sanders campaign, told me she has no appetite for the choice she faces: “It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of shit in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still shit.”

    Expect Trump to aggravate a dispute that advances his own interests. As I’ve written, he spent months wooing Sanders voters during the primary, trying to convince them that the senator was the victim of a Democratic conspiracy to prevent him from getting the party’s nomination.

    Nina Turner and Dr. West are among the only genuine populists in the US political machine, which is why most people have never heard of them.

    I was convinced that Trump would trounce the doddering, senile, corrupt POS Biden...until Trump totally failed to respond to the one daunting crisis that a germaphobe should've known how to handle. But now it looks like even Rain Man might be able to beat Trump. Apparently the preventable deaths of 150,000 American citizens has the electorate a bit miffed. But either way the American people lose, again.

    Strange how all American journalists are still pretending that the 2016 primary wasn't completely rigged against Sanders, even after the DNC and Podesta email leaks, and Donna Brazile's book, proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Trump's like a broken clock - he's wrong about everything nonstop for hours at a time, but twice a day he gets it right; the flagrant rigging of the Democratic primaries is one of those times.

    Trump suggests delay to 2020 US election

    He has No authority to suspend the election. only Congress can do that!
    And lots of luck getting them to do so!
    Polosi and the house will never allow it.
    Over in the Senate there is NO support for this. If Trump tries it what support he has in his party will fade.

    But does Donald Trump and his supporters really care about legal authority?

    Like some of the people he has admitted to liking such as Kim from North Korea, Putin from Russia and hasn't he even said nice things about the current Chinese dictator - Trump likes
    his own kind - Why should he let the American Constitution stand in his way?

    If Putin got his Constitution changed to stay in power, and
    the Chinese leader did the same
    - What is to stop Trump from declaring a national emergency, based on the pandemic and
    street demonstrations, just before the election and taking over the United States?
    - His fellow psychopathic supporters will support him, even though they can never trust him.

    The Democrats made a big mistake in trying to impeach Trump when it was a losing battle
    - Trump is now more dangerous than ever.

    Apropos of nothing I took a transcript of DT's last rally in Tulsa on June 21 and made a Wordle of it. Purely random.

    Dejan isn't American, however money seems to be the only thing trump cares about, he certainly doesn't give a shit about the thousands of Americans dying from the coronavirus...In fact he admitted he was bored with the virus...WTF

    For an admitted germaphobe, you would think that Trump would be all over the COVID virus situation. Unfortunately for him, eating Big Macs and drinking Coke will not cure the problem.

    The 1918 Spanish flu taught us nothing. We have NO leadership Trump has failed on all levels. even wearing a mask is a political issue.
    Recently our governor issued a mask order. within minutes the Republican controlled Senate vowed to kill it.
    our Governor was called out of control and a dictatorship. is this really where we come to?
    Some time ago someone posted here that he was going to ascend with aliens.
    well the way things are going I'm getting in line with him..

    They're finding it hard to serve both Trump and money.

    If Trump for some reason doesn't get reelected, we will loose a lot of freedoms and the country will be forced into bankruptcy via Democrat spending, open borders free college free income free this free that. Punish the rich most are business owners so that will negatively effect jobs and income. The list of negatives by these Democrats(Demon-rats) is long.
    Seems the coming generation if fine with that.
    I see this all ending with America becoming a Communist regime in a few generations. When that happens it will be permanently irreversible.

    Sounds good - Probably why I was one of Trumps staunches supporters in 2016 - Anyone but Hilary. who to me represented left wing extremism and corruption all in one - A deadly combination.

    Trump wasn't bad, though not really the unifying President I expected, as long as times stayed good
    - And he would have won easily in 2020 - But a funny thing happened on his way out of the White House
    - Times turned bad, real bad - Anyone who doesn't think we are in a depression right now is fooling themselves.
    - Trump has now turned into a big fool who keeps trying to fool himself - Imaging he'll wake up and the nightmare will
    be over - Wish he were right, but as of now things keep getting worse.

    In the depression of 1929 Herbert Hoover would do little - He did not believe government, the Federal government had the right to interfere in the economics of the Depression. Trump, much like Hoover, has shown no leadership ability in the ongoing crisis - Desperately in need of a Federal Government plan at the top, he will not give us one - throws it back to the states as the crisis worsens.

    If we keep going with Trump you are right, but we will not have to worry about left wingers and communists
    - Why? Because there will be no United States, in fact there will be no civilization at all, to worry about.

    Franklin Roosevelt and the Democrats did things and used government to help during the Great Depression
    - Biden is no Roosevelt and he's old but he will try.

    At this point I've gone from anyone but Hilary to anyone but Trump.
