This afternoon the USPS says it has ample capacity to handle mail-in voting.

I see this as a rope-a-dope.

It goes like this:

Tell everybody you have the capacity, then purposely delay and sabotage, and, finally, after mail-in votes are lower than expected you affirm that everything was delivered.

4. everything's just fine...

Trumps guy has it all under control.

And on Friday, American Post Workers Union President Mark Dimondstein told CNN that new, recently implemented US Postal Service procedures -- which have led to delays across the country in mail delivery -- could affect mail-in voting for the November election. He said that the union, which represents more than 200,000 Postal Service employees and retirees, has received a number of reports from postal workers and customers over the last two weeks that mail delivery has slowed and "degraded."

Under the leadership of the new postmaster general, Trump loyalist Louis DeJoy, USPS is seeing a slowing of mail delivery in some places. The agency has recently implemented new efforts that workers blame for delivery delays of at least two days across the country -- prompting fears that many ballots may not reach election offices in time if the problems aren't corrected by November.

6. of course they have the "capacity". donnie's toady will simply prevent it from being used.

can't pay overtime or do more than one trip when there's a backlog of ballots to delay!

7. Isn't ramping up the USPS to deliver ballots for the general election...

...a logistically smaller task than ramping up to manufacture and distribute billions of doses of vaccines?

And don't both responsibilities fall on the Federal government?

What is Trump trying to convince us of exactly, that he's as useless as an asshole on your elbow?

Just wait till the delay and sabotage run into Christmas mail delivery.
