Have we learned one, new substantive piece of information from this presser?

I mean it. Educate me. All I hear are the Presidentís opinions about things.

Is it just me, or is he going out of his way to mention work in NY and CA?

Hitching his star to Cuomo and Newsom?

Change of tone here toward those states.

Trump's COVID-19 strategy simplified (for now)

In the court of public perception:

Have the states do all the heavy lifting.

Continue daily briefings for appearances.

Capture the action halo by the states and hope most donít know the difference (Fed vs. states). Continue to see public approval of situation rise.

The spoiler to this? Shit gets really real in two months. Stories of death, shortages and despair by even trumpís faithful pulls back the curtain on who is really doing what and is who is asleep at the wheel. No amount of lying, denial, blaming, or payoffs will sweep things under the rug.

Obama cannot let this go on unchallened any longer

I read that Trump continued to lay blame of HIS upreparedness for coronavirus at the feet of Obama on today's call with state governors.

I know past presidents have a rule not to interfere with current presidents, but this message of "it's Obama's fault!" now being repeated ad naseuem by Trump is blame shifting at dangerous levels. It is cold, callous and totally calculated for too many reasons to list here.

Yes, sane thinking people will see through this message, but nearly 50 percent of America will now turn this to "truth."

Are Obama and Democrats going to combat this messaging publically (a statement, a press conference, etc.)? Or is it a case of pick your battles so the pros can focus on what really matters rather then getting in the gutter to play defense?

With so many life-or-death issues we will be facing, I hate that THIS bothers me.

Impeachment is about proving Trump's illegal actions. NOT manufactured impropriety by the Bidens!

For the love of God Democrats, hold tight and don't even entertain a witness swap in order to get Bolton.

If the Rs want to take on the Bidens, do it in another venue where it belongs. They have nothing to hide and it will be a viewed as a vindictive ploy by a majority of Americans. Rs just want to conflate impeachment and conspiracy theories to lessen the impact of Trump's crime(s) and the Rs cover-up.


As long as impeachment goes on, Trump will not rest until Biden is destroyed, and by whatever means necessary.

For the love of God, can Democrats get mad as hell and call out this bullshit in an authentic and powerful way and amplify, amplify and amplify!!!

We have GOT to win this messaging war.

This Trump/July 4 thing is one big troll


Trump loves stirring it up and working those against him up into a tizzy.

Every maneuver for his event tonight has been to notch up the drama and suck the air out of everything. And look. Dozens of threads dedicated to outrage over this nonsense. Yes, I realize the irony of my post which just adds to it. And no, I'm not turning numb to his behavior and the acceptance and normalization of it by certain segments of our society. I am mad as hell what he has done to co-opt a holiday that is meant to celebrate independence and freedom from tyranny.

Enjoy your 4th of July as you always do. Won't most people be out and about and not tuned in to TV at all? I predict it will be a flop and we'll all just move on the next atrocity. It's all but assured he'll proclaim the event a huge success no matter the outcome. Sad. But don't let it ruin your day. There's always tomorrow when we can all get back to work throwing him and Republicans out of power.

Anyone else watching Years and Years on HBO? SO much to think about! SPOILER WARNING

The limited-run series follows a U.K. family in 2019 and propels them 15 years into the future. While the series showcases main characters and U.K. politics, America plays a major role in shaping world events: Trump has won a second term. Pence is elected after that. Trump drops a nuclear bomb on a Chinese island in a disputed area of the South China Sea just days before leaving office and and the U.S. is sanctioned. Somehow, it doesn't start a world war, so people go on with their lives. There's a huge collapse of an American bank creating a financial catastrophe that ripples throughout the world. And that's only after two episodes! This is all portrayed in a very convincing and realistic way that you could believe things would unfold in a similar fashion in the real world.

My household has been talking about the show and its vision of the future non-stop.

For me, it's really stirred up this idea that - in this modern, technological world - we think we have control of our lives, but we don't. We've become complacent and society is frail enough that it could fall apart at any time. And then what would money, democracy, or human rights even mean and how could we hold our families together?

I'm liking it, but it's chilling. Definitely wakes people up and gets viewers to not take things for granted.

That ends this week's episode of "War with Iran"

Great cliffhanger, eh? Everybody take the weekend off. Go play some golf and tune in next week for another edition.

Trump is such a child. I have proof!
