Of course the Trump Administration is filled with liars. Why do you ask?

The U.S.D.C. for Colorado issued a TRO against the U.S. Postal Service finding that:
"The Notice [distributed by the U.S. Postal Service per Postmaster General DeJoy] provides false or misleading information about the manner of Colorado's elections by stating that voters should '[r]equest [their] mail-in ballot
(often called 'absentee' ballot) at least 15 days before Election Day' and 'mail [their] ballot at least 7 days before Election Day.' In reality, Colorado voters do not need to request a ballot at any time. Voters who receive a ballot do not need to mail the ballot back
at least 7 days before the election; they may alternatively deposit that ballot at a drop-box or may choose to vote in person up to and including on election day.
If a ballot is lost for whatever reason, a Colorado voter can request a replacement ballot at any time or vote in person. Thus, the Notice, which provides patently false information regarding Colorado elections, jeopardizes Colorado's constitutional right
to establish the 'Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections.'" (Internal citations omitted.)

If anyone doubts that the Trump Administration is, to its core, dishonest, read this: "The C.D.C. removes guidance acknowledging the virus is transmitted mainly in the air, days after posting it." nytimes.com/2020/09/21/wor…
Then, read this from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "We have elucidated the transmission pathways of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by analyzing the trend and mitigation measures in the three epicenters.
Our results show that the airborne transmission route is highly virulent and dominant for the spread of COVID-19. The mitigation measures are discernable from the trends of the pandemic.

I have uploaded the opinion in the case out of Washington State enjoining the Postal Service from making changes to its procedures. It is a short opinion, only 13 pages. You don't have to read the entire opinion, only that portion beginning on page 9.
In fact, all you really have to do is read this paragraph:

"Although not necessarily apparent on the surface, at the heart of DeJoy’s and the Postal Service’s actions is voter disenfranchisement.
This is evident in President Trump’s highly partisan words and tweets, the actual impact of the changes on primary elections that resulted in uncounted ballots, and recent attempts and lawsuits by

127 Stanford Medical School faculty members, "infectious diseases physicians and researchers, microbiologist and immunologists, epidemiologists and health policy leaders," sent an open "Dear Colleague" letter
calling "attention to the falsehoods and misrepresentations of science recently fostered by Dr. Scott Atlas" a medical advisor to Pres. Trump.

The letter listed five statements supported by a preponderance of data that contradicts statements and opinions issued by Atlas.
The letter was met by a threatening letter from Trump's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, claiming that the statement in the Stanford letter makes statements that are "abjectly false" and has defamed Atlas. The Kasowitz letter threatens legal action.

I have posed the amicus brief filed on behalf of the Court in the Flynn matter. The first paragraph says it all:

To describe the Government’s Motion to Dismiss as irregular would be a study in understatement.
In the United States, Presidents do not orchestrate pressure campaigns to get the Justice Department to drop charges against defendants who have pleaded guilty—twice, before two different judges—and whose guilt is obvious.
And the Justice Department does not seek to dismiss criminal charges on grounds riddled with legal and factual error, then argue that the validity of those grounds cannot even be briefed to the Court that accepted the defendant’s guilty plea.

The IRS has just issued Notice 2020-65 providing guidance for the withholding tax deferral allowed pursuant to President Trump's executive order issued on August 8. I is, in essence, a scam. I have posted a copy of the notice here:

Neither the executive order nor the notice relieve any employer of the obligation to withhold. Employers who (i) fail to withhold and (ii) no longer employ the employee when the withholding deferral ends could find themselves liable for the amount of tax deferred and penalties.
In essence, such employers will be paying the withholding amounts twice. As the Notice rather cryptically notes:

"An Affected Taxpayer must withhold and pay the total Applicable Taxes that the Affected Taxpayer deferred under this notice ratably from wages and compensation

Of course Donald Trump thinks his supporters are ignorant and stupid. Why do you ask?
In 2017, he issued an executive order that broadened the types of health care plans that could be offered without covering pre-existing conditions. This effectively increased the cost of plans that covered pre-existing conditions.
Now, he's considering, well, we don't know what, perhaps another EO, to require plans to cover pre-existing conditions. To the extent that such rules are already in place due to the provisions of the ACA, such an action is not necessary.
