Whew... Turns out ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ earned more actual money pitching McDonald’s new $1 “Big N’ Tasty” burger than as a real estate developer. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
I mean... this guy is a better burgermeister than either a businessman or a president ImageImage
And he wasn’t even picky... ImageImage

Where to even begin with this ⁦@nytimes⁩ Trump taxes bombshell ... I mean this bottom line may be the understatement if the century: “Ultimately, Mr. Trump has been more successful playing a business mogul than being one in real life.” Dude is broke. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
Just ... gah!! Mark Burnett owes millions of advertisers a refund, because he literally sold a worthless product that millions of people took seriously. Image

Almost nothing surprises me anymore, but I am absolutely astounded at the extent to which so many elected Democrats, especially in the Senate and Senate leadership, insist on acting like normal politics is still happening. Biden is right, PEOPLE ARE ALREADY VOTING!
Republicans are seeking to jam in a 40-year Justice DURING AN ELECTION THAT HAS ALREADY BEGUN! They’re trying to steal tens of millions of Americans’ healthcare like thieves in the night DURING THE ELECTION. They hope to steal your right to decide who fills RGB’s seat.
Biden had that absolutely right just now. What I don’t get is trying to appeal to Republican Senators’ consciences. No such consciences exist, that we’ve been able to detect over the last four years. I’m not sure why Democrat’s don’t just boycott this ahistoric process.

You need only observe how men like Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have gone from being lifted up by the media, conservatives and their party as would-be presidents to objects of relentless mockery and humiliation to understand what Trumpism really does to the Trumpist.
I truly don’t understand why people sign up for it. They get nothing from Trump himself, who continues to crap on them and demand one-way loyalty that he never returns. He mocks our war dead, looks the other way when Russians put bounties on our troops and has made us a pariah.
We as a nation are weaker, sicker and poorer than we have been since the last reign of incompetent Republican presidents in the 1920s and 30s before FDR saved the country from ruin and got us our honor in World War II. These Republicans are eagerly throwing all of that away. Why?

So... let me get this straight ... these Trumpists stole a quarter BILLION dollars from the CDC and other agencies that was meant for actually fighting the virus and are giving it to Caputo’s BUSINESS PARTNERS to make feel-good “corona yay!” celebrity ads? politico.com/news/2020/09/2…
What di ras??? Look who’s getting your tax money to try and trick Americans into feeling good about the virus that’s infected 7 million Americans and killed 204,000 of us:
Why are there always Russians??? Like ... ALWAYS!!
