    Covid death toll, both his initial reluctance to act because he wanted to protect the Stock Market and so failed to protect either that or the people he serves. Also pushing to open the country in areas not ready to open and now the first wave has exploded in the South.

    Promoting division for his own political purpose that then backfired in his face when he misread the mood after the murder of George Floyd and the following protests. Even having peaceful protestors gassed so he could do a photo op.

    Perverting the DOJ with the help of Barr. Who knows what they have planned for Nov but massive voter suppression will be near the top of the agenda.

    A failure. He has achieved nothing other than death, debt and making the Presidency a laughing point around the globe. Evangelical Christians aka The American Taliban love him for the 200 Federalist Society Federal Judges he's appointed, many unfit to be a State Judge let along a lifetime Federal one.

    Lies. With a side of incompetence, corruption, and word salad.

    In all seriousness, any good that comes of Trump's tenure will be any reform in the system to address the gaping holes in their constitution now it's been exposed as being toothless in controlling someone who has gone against the spirit of POTUS at every step.

    I don't think you quite get how desperate these trunk fans are to throw mud. Wait for Biden to pick his number 2. It's going to be a female. Potentially black. Can you imagine the amount of mud these trump fans will be desperately throwing at her.

    I would love it to be Michelle Obama as his no 2. The wailing and total meltdown which would commence.

    No, I get it, I don't get why they expect anyone to take their bedwetting seriously.

    Lol the amount of abuse that poor woman got whilst her husband was POTUS will forever be etched into my mind. It was absolutely disgusting how the right whinging morons in America railed against her and all the good she did with her many campaigns etc.
    But oh dear say anything bad about an ex playboy/gold digger who doesn’t really care about anything but her silly campaign of be best. Whilst her perma tanned husband continues to be a scumbag.

    She would be amazing with the gloves off. I always got the feeling she had to bite her tongue and that let loose that tongue could rip sheds off people. Oh to hear her speak her mind on Trump and debate Pence would be incredible. Sadly I can't see it happening. Hopefully her day will come though.

    Yep, if any family deserved to start a dynasty, I'd imagine the Obamas would be up there, and certainly defecate on the Trumps from a great height.

    It's nice to see that Barack and Michelle both continue to Tweet and comment on things as if they were still POTUS and First Lady.

    I'm sure their children will be given every opportunity to be good people too.

    Wonder if George Nader was buddies with Jefferey Epstein. Seems likely.

    Edit: The Washington Post reported Friday that in 2003 “Nader was convicted in the Czech Republic of what his attorney Christopher Clark described in court as ‘contributing to the moral corruption of society’ after ‘having a relationship with two young men two years under the age of consent.’ ”

    He was also convicted of a child pornography charge in Virginia in 1991 and sentenced to six months in prison.

    So Trump employed this guy despite his child porn history? This should have been a giant red flag to say the least.

    9000 new cases in Florida today. If that gets into the OAP population it could be terrible.

    All he's done with his half baked policy is stretch out the crisis so it will still be ongoing at election time.

    Just another example of how his short term, simplistic thinking ends up with him kicking his own ass.

    If the other Trump thread was still up we could have fun with @deuse as he was telling us all how amazing Ron DeSantis policies of opening up and playing down Covid were. Not looking very clever now is it.

    I'm sure it would be a deep state, Leftist false flag operation.

    Ordinarily I'd be fair, and say something along the lines of hindsight being 20/20 and all that.

    But it's deuse (who called me a bully for calling him out on motorsport-related BS, and then calling out his doubling- and tripling-down). And DeSantis' policies aren't just wrong in hindsight, they were plainly going to result in trouble from the start.

    So I won't.

    Ivanka Trump gave a speech earlier about an executive order Trump is about to sign changing the government’s degree based hiring to skills based. The lack of self awareness is staggering. She is literally the worst person to wheel out to talk about the government hiring process

    Can I correct you?

    It would.have been staggering 3.5 years ago. Now such antics are BAU.
