    Meanwhile, with other stupid people, DeAnna Lorraine is taking a shot at Alexandria Cortez for saying she was playing Animal Crossing.

    Are you kidding me? We're paying you to play Animal Crossing? OMG.
    Cortez fired back, absolutely dunking on her.

    They're playing with fire. This is how you make socialism popular.

    It's actually Katie Miller. Wondering if her hubby Stephen caught it, too, or if vampires are immune.

    Has that ever happened in a non-dictatorship?

    Do tell. That means coronavirus has most likely invaded the West Wing, or will soon come knocking. If that doesnít put the fear of god into Drano Don, nothing will.

    A $60 game versus what amounts to several thousand dollars, minimum, per trip.

    Exercise is about the same, too, given Trump's unwillingness to go more than 15 feet from a golf cart.

    No this is WHY socialism is becoming popular. This pandemic proved that this economy both NEEDS and exploits the hell out of its workers and even in supposedly one of the greatest periods of economic growth ever, it wasnít prepared to withstand something like this without hitting depression levels. Itís a sham. Even the healthcare system. In an environment where hospitals are busier than ever, they are laying people off and tightening their budgets.... because they canít do elective surgerys.

    Apparently, the empty boxes thing was a hoax:

    – On Thursday Pence appeared at a healthcare center in Alexandria, Virginia, to deliver boxes of PPE
    – A video clip from Jimmy Kimmel's late-night ABC program purporting to show the vice president carrying empty boxes for a photo op circulated early Friday
    – This video clip is misleading and selectively edited, according to multiple journalists. Footage provided by C-SPAN reveals that the VP had carried full boxes into the facility before joking with staffers about the empty ones

    I have to ask who did the editing. This sounds like something right up the alley for Project Veritas.

    Nothing really will. The man's denied reality his entire life, why would this be any different?

    Trump: states too slow to reopen, suggests itís intended to hurt his election chances

    Itís always all about him. A text book narcissistic sociopath.

    Imagine how different the world would be if the Business Plot had actually amounted to jail time and treason charges for Ford, Bush and the other conspirators? If they had actually been held accountable for plotting a treasonous coup to install a fascist dictatorship in ‘33, instead of being allowed to buy their way out of trouble? I mean...I know that there are still some who say it was a hoax, but looking at politics today, you SERIOUSLY think it’s outlandish that business owners with financial ties to an enemy state WOULDNT want to overthrow/get rid of a president who was ‘standing in their way’? Capitalism has ALWAYS been corrupt at its core, we’re just becoming more aware of it under the Trump regime as a natural end result.

    But seriously, imagine it: Operation Paperclip May never have happened, thus removing THAT influx of fascist thought from infecting the American Right wing. The right wing in America would thus probably much less fascist (or at least, less blatantly so), and might actually be ‘conservative’. The left wing wouldn’t be so defeated about everything before it even happens and might actually be confident enough to be able to accomplish occasional progressive movement without falling back in the face of minor resistance, fracturing to purity tests and infighting, and falling for the manipulations of obvious agent provocateurs. We likely wouldn’t have had two Bush presidencies, nor would we have gotten the puppet president, Reagan. Dick Cheney would likely have never become Palpatine...

    This really is the worst possible timeline not involving literal zombies...

    It's more than that. It shows how narrow minded and inflexible he is. The common convention was that, as long as the economy was good he'd be able to get reelected. So much so that Trump can not see that massive numbers of deaths across the country will also affect his chances if being reelected.

    He's like the guy who is used to cooking on a gas stove, placing a pot of water over the heating element and turning on the switch, then staring at it screaming 'why isn't the water boiling!' Then, when someone comes and explains that it's an electric stove and you have to plug it in first, he ignores them and keeps yelling as if to change reality.

    When confronted by something unexpected, he tries to ignore it or act like it's something he does understand. I hate to suggest it, but it sounds almost Autistic.

    His entire life, Trump has managed to make people bend his way by being stubborn/wealthy. After several decades of that, and the GOP falling over him now in praise, why would he change?

    It's not a biological issue, it's just he's old and unwilling to change. It's the same with all the investigations that had been carried out while he was president.

    He doesn't understand that he doesn't have absolute power, and he has no idea how to handle institutional power, being on either side of it.

    His entire life, money has insulated him from consequences. After several decades of that, why would we expect him ti change now?

    Stupid Trump went and spilled the beans, too. Most news outlets avoided mentioning her for security reasons.
