    Thats because many can't imagine Biden making it a full term let alone two terms. So his VP choice may very well have to step in as president during the 1st term and if Biden wins will almost certainly be the 2024 nominee. Which is why I'm so worried that he'll make a novelty Sarah Palin type pick by choosing Stacy Abrams instead of a solid credible pick like Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, or Tammy Duckworth. The latter is my hope though I don't expect it since she is the wrong skin color.

    People can sit and criticize Biden for not having his VP pick yet... And don't realize that it has people talking about him, and not negatively, with excitement for who he's going to pick. He's not campaigning, but he's starting to steal the spotlight from Trump...

    Who hates that. And seems to only know how to get the spotlight by being a vindictive authoritarian ***hole. Which only hurts him, and the GOP more.


    This is unfolding exactly as Joe wants it to, save for the parts where Trump is working to try to sabotage mail-in voting.

    “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” first profiled Donald Trump on this date in 2015, and continued to post updates in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. He is never an easy “revisit” for us. Like… last year, we posted this:

    Donald Trump continues to grow worse, in spite of it being seemingly impossible for him to find a way to become so. The Mueller Investigation findings are in, but the public only got a redacted version that showed he is utterly criminal. His lawyer flipped on him, and revealed a series of tax avoidance schemes. His Cabinet continues to rack up record resignations to the extent that virtually every senior level administration official has the word “acting” at the start of their job title. He has started telling Congresswomen of color to “go back where they came from” because he’s that racist. He’s trying to resume the failed “family separation” policy because he’s that cruel. He continues to praise authoritarian dictators. He continues to demonize the press. He put a credibly accused rapist on the Supreme Court AND mocked his accuser on social media. He has cranked up the white nationalism to an extent to where his supporters are committing acts of stochastic terror and literally using the defense of “Trump told me to”. So with the number of lies he’s telling picking up, and his incompetence growing practically exponentially, we’ve only had time as of this post to document days 501-600 of the Trump administration thus far.
    Note, that’s the last time that “Trump Timeline” was updated… at Day 600 of the administration, roughly. We’re now approaching Day 1300, and somehow, current events seem to be like the forgone conclusion of what was coming. But why did we stop keeping a day by day, blow by blow account? It’s important to keep track on the dark, authoritarian policies of the Trump administration and keep people informed so they don’t wake up and while they weren’t paying attention, fascism laid its seeds and bore dark fruit. There is also the need to point out how utterly bats*** insane Donald Trump has always been, and how progressively worse he’s getting. Not just in terms of having a complete lack of empathy, not just taking glee in cruelty (especially against minorities, because he’s racist as f***), but the pathological lies.

    To which… the timeline was at a point where every day, in our estimation, one would need to dedicate an hour or more of work to scouring news sites to stay on top of this horror show in order to document what’s actually going on. It’s that level of derangement, and of outright malice, that needs to be kept up with. The person who has made it her full time job, to our benefit, and done the best with it is probably journalist Amy Siskind, at her own site: She finds hundreds of troubling headlines a week. HUNDREDS. And it’s easy to understand how, as Donald Trump has lied a documented over 20,000 times since taking office by the Washington Post (again, saluting them for doing the hard, hard work).

    The CSGOPOTD blog is a strictly unpaid, volunteer thing. And if we truly “kept up” with Trump, it would leave our profiles of the rest of the party he’s corrupted and twisted in his own image unexplored… and to be perfectly honest, we would probably need alcohol by the barrel or anti-depressants by the truckload to compensate having to do it again, and again. So we’re just going to do our best to summarize and preserve our mental health by not trying to make sense over every breathlessly ignorant moment that we’ve seen from this stupid, stupid carbuncle where a human should be as he’s held this nation hostage for the past three years and seven months.

    • May 2020: Unemployment jumped to double digits, and the highest point since the Great Depression as Trump pressured governors around the country, particularly in red states, to “reopen the country” in the first few days of May, as the national death toll from Covid-19 approached 3,000 Americans dead a day. Nearly three months into the crisis, he openly mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask, still refused to wear a mask himself, and was photographed several times not social distancing without one. He also began arguing that the United States “leads the world and testing”, but simultaneously would argue AGAINST testing for Covid-19. As many states did “reopen”, without any mask requirements in place, they immediately saw their Covid-19 cases skyrocket. By May 23rd, the death toll was approaching the 100,000 mark, and Trump just started spending his weekends golfing again, and making hundreds of insane posts on Twitter, including trying to retroactively reshape history to pretend MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough had murdered an intern, accusing Nancy Pelosi of drinking on the job, or beginning to spread conspiracy theories about in-person voting. This sort of insanity led to Twitter specifically creating a label on posts that indicates they have false or misleading information, enraging Mango Mussolini, and having him impotently rage about the decision and threaten to shut the website down… while people kept dying of Covid-19. By Memorial Day, upon learning that social distancing guidelines would be required at the proposed 2020 RNC at its planned location in Charlotte, Trump responded by demanding it be moved elsewhere, eventually settling on Jacksonville (which would also eventually be a plan that would go up in flames).

      But why not have two terrible responses to national issues? On May 25th, George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis Police Department officers, being choked to death as he begged for his life in the street for an excruciating eight and a half minutes. Peaceful protests began around the country, which law enforcement, long since emboldened by Trump to be more violent in how they do their jobs, attacked with tear gas, rubber bullets, and batons. Police also grew aggressive towards protesters in Louisville who were outraged over the death of Breonna Taylor. Trump, who later claimed he was quoting former Philadelphia Mayor (and huge racist) Frank Rizzo, said “When the looting starts, the shooting starts”. However, the quote is from the also racist former Miami police Chief Walter Headley, who first uttered the misanthropic promise of violence during Civil Rights protests back in 1967.
    • June 2020: John Bolton’s tell-all book about his time working in the Trump administration drops, and reveals that the shakedown of the Ukrainian president that got Trump impeached is standard business for him. Also, Trump’s a moron. Also, don’t buy this book, because Bolton should not be financially rewarded for refusing to testify to Trump’s crimes during the impeachment trial.

      Trump opened up June looking to distract from his disastrous Covid-19 response by leaning in hard on the racism at his core in regards to protesters calling for reforming American policing. On June 1st, he had U.S. troops in Washington D.C. fire tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse peaceful protesters at St. John’s Church, near Lafayette Park so he could run over to the church and without permission, take a photo op of himself holding up a bible upside down. As the protests became even more a national movement, and the DC one grew to a size that would apparently threaten Trump, he began to retreat into the bunker under the White House, and order even more perimeter fencing upon his redoubt.

      The bluster began to fade, and around this time, if it wasn’t already clear to Donald Trump, his re-election hopes began to look like he was going to fall on his bronzer-caked face. His campaign announced he would hold a “comeback rally” scheduled in Tulsa on Juneteenth, and after criticism that amidst racial unrest that they would go to the city where Black Wall Street was attacked by the KKK a century earlier to have one of his white power rallies on Juneteenth, an anniversary commemorating the end of slavery in the United States… well, they delayed the Tulsa rally a day. But they boasted of a million RSVPs, and planned for up to 40,000 to 60,000 people to attend both inside the convention center, as well as gather around an outdoor stage in an “overflow area”. Trump campaign aides literally tore social distancing signs off of displays inside, and the most rabid Trump fans attended without masks… but only to the tune of 6,200 attendees. Over 500 people of that number contracted Covid-19 as a result, including former presidential candidate Herman Cain, who would end up dying of his infection. A defeated, dejected Trump arrived back at the White House in the wee hours of that morning, apparently seeing enthusiasm for his farce of a presidency disappearing before his eyes, and the video of him skulking into the residence askew and in shame went viral.

    So… all of this. And by Election Day, another tell-all book from former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Covid-19 deaths look to be in the 300,000 range by year’s end. Or, y'know, 100 of the dreaded 9-11s. We will have endured 100 9-11s in ten months. F***. Almost a dozen hurricanes are due to hit during this hurricane season, and half of those could be Category 3 or stronger. Legal threats towards Trump for past crimes loom, from everything from his alleged assault of E. Jean Carroll to the Trump Foundation's alleged tax and insurance fraud schemes.

    This tinpot, crackpot dictator has done more to damage this country in four years than should be possible, were he not enabled to do so by the rest of his party. Should he steal the election to pull out another electoral victory fluke, and rest assured, he’s going to try… his own niece doesn’t think the country will survive it, which is probably why the Russians are working to get him elected again, and he says, “I DON’T CARE as if he was reading it off the back of the First Lady’s coat.

    This madness must stop. We shouldn’t have to write about it. People shouldn’t have to wake up to it every day. It’s just so much unnecessary suffering and death that no one should be enduring, but we are, because we’re being patient during this particularly ugly phase of the experiment that is American democracy, or what passes for it. Given the amount of perimeter fencing being set up around the White House, the actions of AG William Barr, and federal agents kidnapping people off the streets at protests… should there be bad news about the presidential in election in November… expect things to get uglier than the protests that erupted four years ago. Trump will be in power when they happen this time, and not just be a president-elect. And he will turn loose the goon squads on them with chemical weapons and rubber bullets with glee, for daring to show any resistance to him.

    Resist. Our lives depend on it.

    And remember, it's not just about getting rid of Trump come November, the ax has to fall on Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and the legion of stooges, sycophants and asskissers in the Republican Party who've enabled the Orange Menace from day one. Republicans could've ended this nightmare back in January during the impeachment hearings, but chose to put party and power over the Constitution, and they're still doing that today, willingly turning a blind eye and deaf ear to all of Trump's endless transgressions that have LITERALLY put democracy in this country on the brink. I've said this before and I'll keep on saying it: retaking the Senate is every bit as important as the White House, because Biden winning the presidency will be meaningless if McConnell is still around to be a human roadblock. There has to be a clean sweep of the GOP scum in the Senate if this country is to recover.

    Getting McConnell out would be fantastic, however it looks like a tough mountain to climb. The next best thing is if the Democrats take control of the Senate along with the House. Not just control, but ideally a large enough control to make McConnell a Non-issue.

    Progressives! Pfft! Spare me! The only progressives I care about are Flo and Jamie, and they have lots more sense than those yahoos.

    That would be the only way to neuter that turtle faced bastard. But, I'd rather McConnell be voted out altogether and avoid that drama.

    Russia registers virus vaccine, Putin’s daughter given it

    Russia on Tuesday became the first country to officially register a coronavirus vaccine and declare it ready for use, despite international skepticism. President Vladimir Putin said that one of his daughters has already been inoculated.

    Putin emphasized that the vaccine underwent the necessary tests and has proven efficient, offering a lasting immunity from the coronavirus. However, scientists at home and abroad have been sounding the alarm that the rush to start using the vaccine before Phase 3 trials — which normally last for months and involve thousands of people — could backfire.

    Speaking at a government meeting Tuesday, Putin said that the vaccine has undergone proper testing and is safe.

    “I would like to repeat that it has passed all the necessary tests,” he said. “The most important thing is to ensure full safety of using the vaccine and its efficiency.”
    Okay, show of hands for everyone eager to take a dose of Bad Vlad's Miracle Vaccine....

    Are you kidding me? I think I'd rather inject Lysol than take something that came out of left field from Russia. How long before Drano Don takes to Twitter to crow about his buddy's breakthrough?

    Pooty is just jealous that even after all this time, and all those people thrown out of windows, that the Czechs still have the coolest defenestrations. He will never match the Defenestrations of Prague no matter how hard he tries.
