Not a good look. It seems credible enough to at least be addressed and is #1 trending on twitter. If mainstream media picks up on it look out. My question is how will the #votebluenomatterwho crowd convince others that it's ok to vote for someone accused of sexual assault? Genuinely asking. They're losing whatever moral ground they have left by rolling with Biden.

The day MSM covers this Ill fall out in shock. Aint gonna happen.

Unless, its a plant to get rid of Biden and insert fill in blank. Ive been saying since befire Christmas HC is gonna figure in this. She wanted a path around the long grinding campaign trail. Ill keep my conspiracy theories to my self for now. The brokered convention path is out.

Egypt and Ethiopia are about to go to war. Amazing what you can miss when the new media sucks ass these days.

I think he chooses her. A lot of pundits mention Harris and Abrams to get minority vote. But Biden's been doing well w/ that demo anyway (at least a lot more than Hillary did). Klochubar probably flips MN, but nothing guaranteed besides that. (running mates usually aren't enough to flip more than one state anyway)

Yeah she's the best option for him. She's smart, I just dont agree with her though.

Somewhat good news as of a tweet from her just one hour ago:

“Just came off senate floor to vote for the bill to get medical supplies to the sick & help workers get through this pandemic. Also thank you everyone for the kind words & prayers for my husband. He’s still in the hospital but one lung has improved & I hope he will be home soon.” 😀

Then how can you like trump if your a constitutional conservative?
Since I got out of service and started paying attention to the things back home I have found that there are about 20 different kinds of conservatives. Im one of them so I just call myself a "realist". Sorry if it offends anyone but thats EXACTLY what Trump is

Cause of what he campaigned off of and the results he produces.
Apoints judges who dont legislate from the bench.
Immigration enforcement and willigness to fix bad law.
Pro life
Nationalist 1st and foremost, not a globalist. Undoing,renegotiating all these horrendous trade deals. Pro business, capitalist.
Im as anti socialist,liberal progressive movement as they come.

That my man is why I voted for Trump and will vote for him again.

Agree on all those points! And he is taking care of the military which is a Yuge deal for me. he is going to campaign the next few months on bringing things back here which was his policy in 2016. He will hammer it home now and for good reason

I am and have been an Independent since the Democratic party left me years ago and, while I certainly don't agree with everything Trump does (nor any other President in my lifetime), he at least wants this country to be ABOUT this country and not any other one. People trying to change what is the greatest country in the history of the world to something else that is anathema to most Americans are not my cup of tee. Personally the best move Biden could make would to be to pick Tulsi Gabbard IMO.

I hear that a LOT from people. I like Tulsi a wee bit more than the rest but the way Trump has handled this crisis and how I think we come out of it roaring, its a non starter who Sleepy Joe picks

**I decided to move this here:

None of this surprises me.

"Dr. Anthony Fauci and Gov. Andrew Cuomo are the most trusted leaders in America on the coronavirus right now. Trump is not."

"Fauci has consistently been one of the most public-facing and trusted voices on the coronavirus crisis — often appearing at odds with the White House's more optimistic messaging in the process.

But Fauci's blunt explanation of the strict scientific facts, calm but no-nonsense demeanor, and subtle sense of humor both in White House briefings and in congressional hearings have garnered him rave reviews from the public and made him a household name."

"Fauci and Cuomo received the highest marks, and President Donald Trump and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin got the lowest:"
  • Respondents gave Fauci an average score of 3.84 out of 5 for trustworthiness. He received a top score of 5 from 40% of respondents, which is nearly double what the next highest-rated person got, and 86% gave him a 3 or higher, which is vastly higher than anyone else.
  • Cuomo received an average score of 3.29 out of 5. Three-quarters of respondents gave Cuomo a score of 3 or higher, and 22% gave him 5 out of 5."


"Global-health Ambassador Deborah Birx, the response coordinator of the coronavirus task force, got a score of 3.14 out of 5. About three in four respondents gave Birx a score of three or higher."

  • President Donald Trump scored 2.56 out of 5 on average. Forty-four percent of respondents rated Trump a 1 out of 5, compared with 20% who rated him a 5 out of 5. The largest group of people — 55% — rated Trump as a 1 or 2.
  • Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin got the lowest score out of the 10 officials, with a rating of 2.52 out of 5 on average.

Since it's nearly impossible for anyone to disagree with Trump or his handling on Covid-19, I have to ask: What is it about Trump that makes him so great? Why do people feel the need to constantly defend him, even if he is wrong? And I am not referring to news sources. I am simply referring to fact-checkers. The guy can't give a speech during a national crisis, without peppering insults to media outlets, other politicians, or even his own staff. Shouldn't we all be working together? If the leader of the free world can't unite us than we aren't setting ourselves up for failure? This is the man that said he could, "stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody" and not lose any votes. This virus isn't a farce, it's not "fake news" it's a grim reality that can't be diminished simply by shunning reporters. It needs to be addressed in a professional. I love America and want all of us to flourish. I don't want to lose friends because I happen to have a different opinion, I just want solidarity amongst America and the rest of the world. We can't battle this alone.

Everybody talks about wanting to be tested and how there's not enough tests for the virus. In my opinion that's what happens when tests are free.. it ends up being rationed for the worst cases.. that is exactly how government-run Healthcare would be to all liberals that are in favor. This is a prime example of what would happen in Healthcare.

I think it’s simple. There aren’t enough tests because we don’t have enough tests. They could cost a thousand bucks each and there still wouldn’t be enough. I don’t see this as a result of single payer healthcare because we aren’t a single payer healthcare country and you can’t just make 330 million tests in no time. You need reagents and a way to mass produce. The infrastructure and reagents just aren’t in our possession.
