Can Peter Navarro get any further up Trump's butt?

Watching an interview with him on The Week and like always he is the biggest suck up, Trump emulating mini-me for Twitler ever. Its as annoying to listen to him as his Liege Lord. I bet he has a shrine to him.

Sorry had to vent. But I can't wait until he makes a slip and due to pure expediency Trump tosses him under the bus like he has so many others.

Trump, the GOP and the ACA

If this is dumb question please excuse me. Its pretty clear why Trump is Hell bent on trashing the ACA. It has Obama's scent on it so must destroyed. Pure jealous spite, something he has in endless supply.

But what beef does the GOP overall have with it? Basically the same thing, they don't want to give the Democratic party a 'win' or a last positive change, petty enough to seethe this long over Obam getting something passed their road block or has their been concocted alleged reason it must be done away with as fast as possible?

Got my vote in today, it felt good

Even though being in Ky, makes my presidential pick more than likely symbolic due to the EC.

Vox article: 'Trump exploited a broken press. Here's how to fix it.'

Last Friday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was confronted by a CBS reporter as he stepped off a plane. “What is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?”

To his credit, Biden dismissed the question, but that’s not really the point. The story the reporter was referencing, which was peddled to the Post by Rudy Giuliani, is absolute bullshit. The staff journalist who wrote the story even reportedly refused to put his name on the byline out of concerns that it was bogus and unreliable.

If any of this reminds you of Hillary Clinton’s fake email scandal in 2016, it should. Then, as now, the goal of people like Giuliani was to get the press to cover a story not in order to convince people that it’s true, but to amplify a false narrative and divert attention — and maybe drive the public to exhaustion. It’s a strategy that Steve Bannon colorfully dubbed “flooding the zone with shit.”

I’ve written about this problem more than once (here and here) and yet I still struggle to come up with viable solutions. The pattern is always the same: Trump, or operators working on his behalf, flood the zone with shit and the media responds as it always does: it covers the story. Even though much of the coverage is skeptical, as the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent argued, the mere fact that stories are printed with the words “Biden” and “emails” means the zone-flooding approach succeeded.

White House looks at cutting Covid funds, newborn screenings in 'anarchist' cities

The White House is considering millions of dollars in cuts for coronavirus relief, HIV treatment, and other health programs in cities that Trump has deemed “anarchist jurisdictions.” In September, Trump ordered federal agencies to reduce funding to jurisdictions that “disempower” police departments and promote “lawlessness.” The Department of Health and Human Services has identified federal grants for nearly 200 health programs that serve the poorest and sickest residents in New York, Portland, Ore., Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

There really is nothing too cheap, cruel and petty for this guy.

I guess he got his phone back...

Who deliberately draws this much attention to an allegedly 'bad' interview?

I think someone took Twitler's phone.

When is 45's crash going to hit?

He's bouncing around the country like Sonic the Superspreader at a pace healthy people would find at least a little taxing. Its past the expected time for the 'roid high to run out yet he still seems to be going strong. Maybe he does feed off the crowds in some fashion...

Do others think he still looks ill and sickly? I'm really beginning to lean toward the conspiracy theory that Tweety never had Covid...

Why is MSNBC suddenly showing the Trunp Rally?

They interrupted Politics Nation for it, they haven't aired one for awhile.
