In Trump universe....

there were billions attending Trump's inauguration, and

his hands are huge, and

he is a stable genius, and

he is a genius at business, and

he does know more than the Generals, and the Doctors, and the economists, and

climate change is a hoax, and

there was no election interference, and

COVID19 has magically disappeared.

Unfortunately for the country, and the world, we do not live in that alternate Trump universe.

Adam Schiff Says Even Trump Knows That We Will Prevail (On the tax issues)

From the article:

…..For over a year, President Trump and his Administration have sought to obstruct the Committee’s duly authorized subpoena to Deutsche Bank. While we are disappointed that the Supreme Court abandoned its prior precedent and promulgated a new standard for Congressional subpoenas implicating the President, we are grateful that the Court reaffirmed Congress’ broad power to investigate in aid of its legislative authority. The dubious legal arguments advanced by Donald Trump and Bill Barr would have undermined the separation of powers and were properly rejected by the Court.

Trump Claims Democrats Are The Source Of Hate In America

From the article:

Trump said, via The Washington Post:

“It takes guts to say what I say,” he said on Wednesday. “I mean, I understand, I could do it a lot easier, but it would be the wrong thing to do. I could say I’m against everything — ‘I’m against everything, I’m totally in favor of all of the hate.’ — The real hate is not the hate from me. The real hate is the hate from the other side on many of the things that we talk about.”

Classic Trumplogic that will be repeated by his cultists on social media.

We might have a vaccine for COVID19 in the near future.

And that is good, but what do we do, what can we do, about the epidemic of stupidity that is running rampant among GOP politicians and voters?

Are the people behind the Lincoln Project ads the only sane Republicans left?

I am speaking a bit hyperbolically here, because I know a few sane GOP voters in my area, but so few.

Can anyone even reach those who speak of a plandemic, or those who follow QAnon?

Or the Infowars cultists?

Or is this merely a loud minority of 37%?

Lincoln Project Ad Gets Twice As Many Views In 12 Hours As Tucker Carlson Gets All Week

From the article:

The Fox News audience is a very small subset of the American political landscape. This is the base of a few million people that Donald Trump has decided to base his entire campaign on and play to.
The Tucker Carlson audience isn’t big enough to win a presidential election.

Republicans Reportedly Have "No Idea" about Trump's Agenda for a Second Term

From the article:

Republicans on Capitol Hill don’t know what Donald Trump will do with a second term. Reports over the Fourth of July weekend claimed the GOP has “no idea” what the President’s agenda could be.

Trump twice failed to explain what his second term agenda will be in recent interviews with friendly news outlets – a fact that has reportedly worried senior Republicans.

This article could also be titled "Republicans have no ideas". Like the "repeal and replace" nonsense that was heard after the ACA was passed.

The GOP has no ideas.

Conservative Lincoln Project: Trump's Given Us "Rocket Fuel" by Attacking Us

From the article:

Founded by a group of former Republicans, the Lincoln Project has run a series of powerful political ads aimed at the President and his Republican supporters.
Trump has responded by attacking his conservative critics on Twitter – a move that co-founder John Weaver says only helps them.

“By attacking us, he’s become our biggest financial bundler,” Weaver said.

Herman Cain Didn't Wear A Mask At Trump's Rally, And Now He Has Coronavirus

From the article:

Herman Cain is 74 years old. In the middle of a pandemic, he should not have been attending a large indoor gathering. He should not have been without a mask.
It is impossible to know if Cain got the virus from Trump’s rally because anyone who would engage in such reckless behavior could have picked up the virus in a variety of places, but the fact is that Herman Cain thought that he could attend a large indoor political rally without a mask, and now he is sick.

Would it be cold to say, as Cain has himself said many times, "blame yourself"?

50% Of Voters Say They Absolutely Won't Vote For Trump

From the article:

Slightly more voters say they are certain about their support for Biden (40%) than say the same about Trump (34%). Fully half (50%), though, say they are not at all likely to support the incumbent while 39% say the same about the challenger. In addition to Biden’s current firm support, another 3% say they are very likely to vote for him and 9% are somewhat likely, while 6% are not too likely. In addition to Trump’s current firm support, another 2% say they are very likely to vote for him and 6% are somewhat likely, while 6% are not too likely.

Trump Throws A Fit Whenever His National Security Briefers Even Mention Russia

From the article:

It’s well documented that Donald Trump rarely or never reads his President’s Daily Brief (PDB), which – as Natasha Bertrand of Politico pointed out on Thursday – consists of about a dozen different articles per day covering various hotspots and national security threats the president should be aware of.

But according to Bertrand, Trump can’t even get through his verbal briefings without going off on tangents – especially if the briefer brings up Russia.
“His intelligence briefers have essentially internalized this notion that if you bring up Russia around him, he’s just going to explode,” Bertrand said during an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber. “He doesn’t want to hear anything about Russia.”
