    It seemed like he realised what he said and was playing around with the double meaning on that one.

    Looks worse in writing without that context.

    “Well, you have to look at who’s saying that”
    “Are you saying you know more than me?!”
    “I prefer to deal in facts!”

    Then I hang up.

    I see he has absolutely no idea what PER CAPITA means either. It depends which capita you're talking about, see. Changes the whole perspective depending which capita you're referring to.

    For example, it could be capita A, capita B, capita F, you see what I mean? Got to get the right capita, people tell me, sir, your capitas have always been perfect and I tell them, which capita are you referring to, I mean of course all my capitas are perfect, I hire the best capitas, haven't I always said that, and of course the mainstream fake news media, I call them the lamestream media, yes especially you, such a nasty woman, they'll try to twist my words and say oh he said inject disinfectant, I didn't say inject disinfectant, I didn't say that, and if you look at what's going on you'll see our military, our military is the best but it needs to be more, with the boats and the big sky birds, they call them 'planes' but they're in the sky and they look like big metal birds, i say why not call them sky birds? But the lamestream media aren't interested in that, you'll never read that in the fake news media.

    This reminds me a little of the HIV Alladeen bit from The Dictator.

    He's got plenty of other ways to rig the election. The US system wasn't setup to deal with a president that has no ethics.

    Well except that 2nd amendment thing, 300M souls and 200M firearms, any combination of which is able to deal with a president with no ethics. The problem being the 200M firearms are mainly owned by cunts in MAGA caps :)

    There are no effective checks and balances from what it seems. Especially with a partisan supreme court balance.

    One in six of those taking one of the drugs died, while one in five died if they were taking chloroquine with an antibiotic, and one in four if they were on hydroxychloroquine and an antibiotic. The death rate among patients not taking the drugs was one in 11.
    Am I reading that right? Almost twice as likely to die?

    Having a completely corrupt Senate majority leader and Attorney General appears to be the trick. What a hire Barr has been for Trump, helped completely destroy the rule of law.

    Biden apology after saying black voters considering Trump 'ain't black'

    "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black,"
    What the fuck is this idiot doing?

    It is thoroughly depressing to see him working hard towards snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Him going on about his good record re Black people is also total cringe and reeks of over overconfidence a la "don't worry I got this". Fucking idiot.

    That's exactly what I'm concerned about. The more time he has to destroy himself, the worse.

    “You ain’t black” is Biden’s “basket of deplorables” moment.

    But it makes me think of a funny-but-racist parody of Michael Jackson’s “Bad” video.

    Not really related to anything but this popped up on my YouTube feed, and it's amazing to see how far things have declined, yet you can see the early signs.

    Somehow these idiots took over.

    Biden is a liability but at least I trust enough to think he won’t be actively trying to kill tens of thousands of people to spare his own ego like Trump is

    I don't think that Biden's comment is going to shift anyone who wasn't already convinced either way.

    Trump is similar in that his approval rating has been basically consistent. The problem he's having is that it's consistently lower than Biden's approval rating, and he doesn't seem to have much answer for it aside from doubling down on his base. And that could really fuck him, because the die-hards might not be enough when your opponent isn't nearly as hateable as a Clinton.

    Well, except black voters, who traditionally don't vote (for myriad reasons, most of them understandable), so the Democratic card is ALWAYS based on "connect with them" - which he's just fucked up.

    This is an incredibly damaging thing for him to do, basically he's just thrown out an example that he fundamentally doesn't understand what he's doing nor the problems with voter apathy in a huge demographic.

    I hope he doesn't get Warren on the ticket as VP and she knows enough to wait four years and go again.

    I can't quite believe how the Dems are fucking this up AGAIN

    I genuinely don't think it's going to make that much difference. But hey, I guess we'll find out!
