The truth of the matter is that Trump is a bullshitter and spits out nothing but fake news.

He is a know-it-all who listens to no one.

He has an antennae for suckers.

There is not a whole lot we do not know about him.

Now, we learn that he knows more than the scientists of the World Health Organization. We should believe him when we are on the brink of a world-wide pandemic, the magnitude of which we do not yet know.

First and foremost, he is a liar. He blames "fake news" for anything negative that might be said about him, but he is the major source of "fake news" in our country today.

The danger is that this is only the beginning of the pandemic.

When it gets worse, it could get exponentially worse.

It is a logical conclusion that there are more cases than are being reported. Some people do not or cannot go to a doctor.

We hope that we are near the end of this epidemic but, we may only be at the beginning.

We should hope for the best but we should prepare for the worst.

Bullshit and fake news will be of little help to us.

Was Bernie always more of a "caucus" candidate?

He never did that well in the primaries.

He gained traction by organizing his base for caucus turnouts. He was able to win several caucuses and it gave a false reading of his overall popularity? Maybe so?

Several states where Bernie won big changed to a primary system and Bernie does not do as well in a primary.

I think that is a reality that Bernie supporters should accept as a possibility.

Enough Division.

This country needs unity.

It is unfortunate that every word and every action by Donald Trump is meant to divide the country.

Of course, it is meant to divide his side from the "other" side. For his side, they are usually OK with that. It's a natural reaction, I suppose?

But, it is terrible for our nation. It cannot end well. It is a path to violence and destruction. Most Americans understand that.

United we stand, divided we fall, has never been more true.

Is Twitter for small-minded people?

Eleanor Roosevelt is credited with saying that "great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people".

How many tweets are dedicated to discussing other people? Certainly, almost every tweet by Dear Leader is talking about someone else. There is no doubt but that it appeals to his "small mind". It was tailor-made for him.

How many people here have experienced flu-like symptoms in the last week or two?

But did not go to a doctor?

I wonder if there may be many more of us than anyone knows?

We've had the flu before and we have always survived.

Could it be widespread in the population and no one knows the actual numbers?

We need a candidate like Jimmy Carter to run against Donald Trump.

A contrast in morals and decency and humanity.

A candidate that could stand up for the best of America, not the lowest common denominator.

People prefer to believe their leaders are good and honest people.

But they have to be shown.

How long before Lindsey Graham announces investigation into Hunter Biden and Burisma?

It may happen next week?

What should be the Democrats response?

It has been reported that Ivanka and Jared made between $82 million and $135 million last year, as senior White House advisers?

Also, there is the possibility that Jared, who is a good friend of MBS, may have known about the assassination of Wash Post columnist, Jamal Khasoggi.

And why did Trump restrict access to calls between MBS and Putin?

If Lindsey Graham follows thru on his investigation of Hunter Biden, should the Democrats in the House follow thru on their investigation of Ivanka and Jared?

Is that the only language they understand?

Trump forgets he was impeached for puling his dirty tricks on Joe Biden.

Now, he wants to do it again.

I'm hoping the Bernie supporters are not dumb enough to fall for it.

Because he and the Repubs looked at the huge turnout for the Democratic primaries and almost crapped their pants. In some states, like VA, it was almost double what it was in 2016.

He needs to start rumors, much like he did in Ukraine, and tear down Joe Biden. Because he cannot win unless he tears down someone else.

But, he was impeached for that. Now, if he can just persuade enough Bernie supporters that the Democratic Party is trying to screw them, maybe they don't show up to vote?

Perhaps the people need to be reminded about what he was impeached for?
