BTRTN: Three September Surprises...and an October Stunner


"We have just witnessed two weeks that defy imagination. And yet, none of the epic events – not the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, nor the outing of Donald Trump’s taxes, nor Trump’s stunning savagery in his opening debate with Joe Biden, nor Trump’s contraction of COVID-19 – were, at the end of the day, terribly surprising. One could reasonably argue that they were all inevitable – it is simply the confluence of their occurrence, and all so close to Election Day, that leaves us reeling.

Not only reeling, but, more than ever, without a clue as to where it all will land. As predictable as those events might have been, the outcomes that could arise from them range from A to Z. Most notably: will Trump recover, physically? Can he recover, politically, from the blows delivered by his taxes, his widely-panned debate performance, and the return of COVID as a campaign issue? And will Amy Coney Barrett actually ever be confirmed as a lasting Trump legacy on the Supreme Court?
