Spotted outside Donald Trump’s rally in Macon, GA— Senator Kelly Loeffler.
Brian Kemp tells supporters in Macon, GA, "Thanks to you, and our great President Donald Trump, we defeated Stacey Abrams. I just wanted to make sure you knew that. And that has been what has kept our state in the right direction," ahead of Trump's rally here tonight.
Here’s the scene in Macon, GA, where President Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver remarks in one hour at his third and final campaign stop of the day. The Village People’s “Macho Man” has played, conservatively, four times so far.
Senate Candidate Doug Collins, who’s challenging Senator Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed to her seat in 2019, is running through the audience here in Macon, GA, talking and taking pictures with voters, and even conducting members of the audience to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Donald Trump, Macon, GA, 18 days.
In remarks in Macon, GA, Donald Trump expresses dissatisfaction with moderator Savannah Guthrie over last night's town hall, telling supporters "Everybody thought it was so inappropriate...And then Savannah, her face, the angriness, I mean the craziness last night."
Trump claims Savannah Guthrie "like disappeared," which is a funny way to describe someone who hosted today's edition of the Today Show on NBC.
For the 2nd time, Trump complains about Savannah Guthrie for confronting him on amplifying misinformation during last night's NBC town hall, including a conspiracy theory that Seal Team 6 did not kill bin Laden, claims he told her, “I don’t believe you, why would I believe you?”
Trump continues to complain about Savannah Guthrie, bringing her up for the third time in remarks tonight, telling supporters, "But last night, you know, she was out of line."
As is his wont, Donald Trump, recently recovered from Covid-19, hits Joe Biden for abiding by social distance guidelines during his campaign stops, says, "It would be impossible to catch anything with the circles because they’re so far away," which is, of course, the point."
Trump tells supporters, "You know I don’t joke about" social distancing guidelines, which he does often.
Trump talks the 2018 gubernatorial race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp, before bringing up "Oprah, she used to be a friend of mine, she was down at Mar-a-Lago a lot, she loved my key lime pie. She used to be a friend of mine, but in this life, you lose a lot of friends."
In Macon, Donald Trump introduces Senator Kelly Loeffler, in the crowd, to applause, before telling supporters, "My only problem is she’s running against another great guy, I said run it out, I’m backing both of them, cuz where’s Doug Collins." Collins draws a much louder cheer.
Trump, talking Loeffler/Collins, continues, "Boy am I in a lousy position, because I like ‘em both, I love ‘em both. But you know what I love? They’re going to go to the polls, they’re going to to bring their people, & you know who’s going to win? Trump."
Trump brings up Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Green, in the audience tonight, who's expressed support for QAnon. "Marjorie Taylor Green, she is unbelievable. I looked at your poll numbers, you’re really up but just pretend you’re one point down."

(Green is unopposed).
And, 1 hour 44 minutes after he started speaking, President Donald Trump finishes remarks in Macon, to the opening peels of "YMCA" by the Village People.

Sean Hannity asked President Donald Trump if he'd tested negative yet for Coronavirus, and the President refused to answer, instead leading Hannity on a segue on the experiemental drugs he's been treated with
Trump, who has Covid, says, "I think I'm going to try doing a rally on Saturday night if we can, if we have enough time to put it together, but we want to do a rally in Florida, probably in FL on Saturday night, might come back and do one in Pennsylvania, on the following night.”
To his credit, Hannity presses Trump on if he's still testing positive for Coronavirus-- Trump again doesn't answer, says, "the test will be tomorrow, and the actual test, because there's no reason to test all the time, but they found very little infection or virus, if any."

And we’re inside the debate venue at U of U’s Kingsbury Hall— guests, wearing masks provided at the door, have tested negative for Covid in the last 72 hours and had their temperatures checked before entry— they’re assigned seats socially distanced throughout the auditorium.
Also observing Covid-mitigation practices: reporters! We’ve also had our temperatures taken, and tested negative for Covid before admission— rockstar correspondents @ryanobles and @KyungLahCNN are separated by a plexiglass barrier, while @linh_tran and I produce from the wings.
The preprogram of the debate has started with a stern warning from the commission here at the U of U, who tells members of the audience, “You were told when you entered here to put your mask on…if you do not put your mask on, you will be advised that your ticket is canceled.”

It appears a demonstrator has interrupted the President Donald Trump's remarks in Henderson, Nevada, prompting the president to tell security to "get him out of here." Supporters chanting "All lives matter" at the protester.

President Donald Trump held another telerally tonight, this time with Iowans, on his Facebook page, apparently:
President Donald Trump, on Space Force: "You all know about it, it's ultimately going to be, maybe one of the most important, just all about space, and it's going to be one of the most, but we had to make sure that we stay ahead of Russia, China and many other countries."
Trump, who canceled the RNC in FL over the pandemic, hits Biden for not campaigning: "You have Biden, comes out of the basement, says crazy things, & then goes back into the basement, he ends up going usually to Delaware, where he comes from, & then he doesn't travel the country"
