Here's a bit of information

Mike Bloomberg plots spending blitz to support Joe Biden’s run for president

Also, his ad and data analytics firm HAWKFISH is now working for both the DNC and a PAC called American Bridge.

I really, really miss his ads, which were as tough as the Lincoln Project ads, but he's probably going to be working in the background from now on.

I think we'll see more as we get into the last legs of the race.

Michael, if you want to sell books, tell us about the money

Tell us about the loan write-offs
Tell us about the fake trust funds
How was money funneled to the Trump Campaign by foreign interlopers during the runup to the election?
Tell us about the shell companies
Tell us about the fake real estate valuations
Who paid cash for lavish Trump properties without providing their identifying information?
Tell us about the payoffs to the Enquirer
Tell us the truth about "Katie Johnson" (Jane Doe #3)
Tell us why Alfa Bank was constantly pinging the Trump Organization websites and shell companies leading up to the election
Tell us about Deutsche Bank

Jared Kushner and Hope Hicks can't get it through his thick skull:

Some of Mr. Trump’s closest advisers are adamant that the best way forward is to downplay the dangers of the disease. Mark Meadows, the chief of staff, has been particularly forceful in his view that the White House should avoid drawing attention to the virus, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Mr. Meadows has for the most part opposed any briefings about the virus, while other Trump advisers, including Hope Hicks and Jared Kushner, have been open to holding briefings so long as they are not at the White House — where Mr. Trump could show up and commandeer them. Mr. Pence’s team would like to hold more briefings with the health experts, but some of Mr. Trump’s communications aides do not want the vice president to be part of them.


The four things he doesn't want to talk about:

1. Coronavirus pandemic
2. The economic collapse
3. Russian bounties
4. Secret police abducting protesters

and a bonus issue:

5. Mary Trump and her mesmerizing book, which has the capacity to do more damage than the dozen most popular Trump Failure books that came before it. (i.e., really what we're talking about here is his mental incapacity to be president)

He'll throw stuff all over his crib trying to take our eyes off these things. He'll smear yoghurt on his face and make a poo-poo on the Resolute Desk to distract us.

Here's some additionally really exciting news:

DNC hires Bloomberg-tied tech firm Hawkfish for 2020 election

The Democratic National Committee has hired the digital and technology firm Hawkfish, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation, bringing the Michael Bloomberg-founded company on board for the final four months of the 2020 campaign.

The DNC’s decision will be controversial among some progressives, who bristled at the idea of Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire, gaining influence within the party. Earlier this month, Joe Biden’s campaign opted against hiring the firm, though the DNC and Biden campaign are working hand-in-hand during the general election.

The nature of the Hawkfish’s contract with the DNC, and what work they’ll specifically do for the committee, was not entirely clear. One source with knowledge of the agreement said it was for a “small data contract.”

Pro-Biden super PAC American Bridge hires Mike Bloomberg’s digital firm Hawkfish

Hawkfish, a tech firm founded by billionaire former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, has signed on with a pro-Joe Biden super PAC after missing out on working directly with the presumptive Democratic nominee’s campaign.

The super PAC, American Bridge, recently signed a contract with the Bloomberg firm, officials told CNBC.

The PAC has spent millions of dollars on ads on TV and online in support of the former vice president’s bid for the White House. The organization is also well known for its often-unmatched opposition research arm.

Thank you for posting.

That talking point that Dems can't do ads is out of date.

Some people have such short memories. I remember the ooohs and aahhhs every time #TeamBloomberg put a new ad up obliterating Trump. Devastating and often humorous ads that went viral in minutes. People could hardly contain their excitement.

And who could forget Joe Biden's "The world is laughing at Trump" ad?

I read the books because they validate reality as I understand it, at a time

when people are screaming that things that are true are fake.

Also, some of us really care about the "Why"? For us, it's not enough just to know Trump is crazy and corrupt. We need to know everything we can possibly know to help us have a sense of control over a reality that is difficult to comprehend.

And the different books cover all different aspects.

Trump and His Generals covered Trump's relationship with the Pentagon
Fear and Stable Genius and Fire and Fury covered some things.
The Apprentice covered very specific aspects of the RussiaGate.
House of Trump, House of Putin goes way back and traces Trump's involvement with Russian gangsters.
Then there are the memoirs, and they are what they are.
Dangerous Case of Donald Trump and Dangerous Charisma have psychiatrists examining Trump's mind.

Sometimes, I think people don't like the books because they don't read the books. Maybe they don't like the idea of there being so many books about one person they can't stand.

I get that. There are hundreds of books on Stalin. I'm not interested in Stalin, so I'm not interested in books about him.

He got lucky. In the 90s he met a group of corrupt Russians who needed an ignorant patsy

just as badly as he needed their laundered money. Otherwise, he'd be living beneath a freeway overpass.

The rest is history.

Also, running as an angry populist if what you do if you if you're the opposite of a mastermind. Look at history's tyrants.

I hate to be so cynical, but some of these governors, I suspect, appreciate

when citizens die because they think of citizens in terms of what they cost the state. They see social security checks, medicaid payments, food stamps and pensions, jail cell space, reduced crowding in prisons, the homeless problem. Especially when members of marginalized communities perish.

I'm not an expert on the Trumps but I've read a little bit about it.

Most of the psychiatric profiles I've read agree with the first part, that Fred Sr. tried to groom Fred Jr but that Fred Jr had his own aspirations separate and apart from what his father planned for him, and that he was squeezed out as Fred Sr set his sights on Donald, who was willing and didn't want to be subjected to the treatment his older brother received from their father. It's a very tough thing to go against your father and live with constant rejection from the dominant male influence in your life, which undoubtedly contributed to his alcoholism.

You might be getting a little bit ahead of yourself by accusing Mary Trump of omitting this, since your theory is by your own admission a hypothesis, and it's one that other books by psychiatrists on this subject (The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, Dangerous Charisma and likely the longer biographies) don't really back up. That's kind of a tough charge to make when the evidence so far is that she's brutally honest and experiencing great discomfort and assuming great personal risk by coming forward. Of course new facts could come out that could change that.

I'll be reading her book this weekend and maybe there will be additional clues.

But what you are saying is interesting conjecture.

That family dynamic was set in stone by Fred Sr. Donald Trump didn't actually have to do anything to Fred Jr. except to fall in line with his father for Fred Jr. to experience the interpersonal catastrophe that followed once he distanced himself from his father. One brother resisted the father; the other brother did not.
