First I've heard of "Infectivity Rate"

From local central TX newspaper...

District reported Thursday that four more residents had tested positive, bringing the local case count to 117, with 18 cases active. The increase comes as the statewide “infectivity rate,” the average number of people each infected person spreads the disease to, recently climbed to the fifth highest in the nation

Kayleigh McEnany Blasts Vote-by-Mail But Has Voted by Mail at Least 11 Times

https://lawandcrime.com/2020-election/white-house-press-secretary-kayleigh-mcenany-blasts-vote-by-mail-but-has-voted-by-mail-at-least-11-times/

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has defended President Donald Trump’s increasing attacks on vote-by-mail in recent days. Over the past decade, however, McEnany has personally voted by mail in Florida at least 11 times. According to an investigation of voter records by the Tampa Bay Times, McEnany has voted by mail in every election since 2010.

Snip
President Donald Trump offered an assessment of a national vote-by-mail standard during a Fox News interview on Monday morning, saying that if such a provision made it into the COVID-19 stimulus bill–as Democrats hoped–Republicans would never win an election again.

8. Trump says he "knows more than all our generals combined" despite not serving.

11. Trump called homeless veterans with PTSD weak. His family hasn't served going back to his grandfather who came here to avoid military service in Germany.
12. Trump attacked the leadership of our military and intelligence community when they have failed to endorse his assessments of hostile foreign nations.

20. Trump spent millions (sic) for a military parade because he was envious of the parades his friends Kim and Putin have.
21. Trump has repeatedly defended Kim whose grandfather started the Korean War which killed 54,246 Americans and whose family has killed millions of their own countrymen including his own brother. Trump defended his friend Putin saying he couldn't have shot down an airliner, invaded Ukraine, or poisoned his rivals with radioactive waste and nerve agents.
22. Reagan, Bush SR, Clinton, Bush JR, and Obama spent Thanksgivings and Christmases with our troops. Trump used phone calls, traffic, and golf as an excuse to not visit our troops. He made one short visit after Christmas in 2018 to an airbase.
23. During the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, he canceled a visit to Belleau wood cemetery because it was raining. He met with Putin in private instead. Reagan, Bush SR, Clinton, Bush JR, and Obama all stood in cold pouring rain multiple times to honor our war dead.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-considers-forming-panel-to-review-complaints-of-online-bias-11590238800

WASHINGTON
President Trump considering establishing a panel to review complaints of anticonservative bias on social media, according to people familiar with the matter, in a move that would likely draw pushback from technology companies and others.

The plans are still under discussion but could include the establishment of a White House-created commission that would examine allegations of online bias and censorship, these people said.
