I do not see even a lame Biden telling the Governor of Michigan she's not getting lifesaving medical gear because she did not kiss his ass, or telling the Governor of New York he's lying about needing 30000 ventilators.

Oh but the PURITY TESTS are so much more importantz!!!

I saw Biden scoff at universal healthcare during a pandemic in his last debate. Does that count as purity.

What is a purity test you keep going on about anyways Jeff?

Your definition of "scoff" is not accurate.
And when it comes to any kind of scoffing, no one beats the current party in power right now...in the middle of a pandemic.

Trump is attacking Michigan's Governor and telling vendors not to send equipment or supplies to Michigan. I wonder where GM is going to manufacture those ventilators he asked for?

Trump Attacks Michigan

Now he's actually trying to kill certain people. He's making it personal. Somebody's going to send some RPGs through the White House front windows.

Trump has always taken any one who said or even had a bad thought about him personally. Such is the thin skinned, egotistic, uncouth president he is. He views anyone with a D behind his name as the enemy as they have set out to destroy him since the day after the election. Especially since impeachment.

Trump's overall approval numbers keep improving.

For the first time since 14 Mar 2017, over three years ago those who disapprove of Trump Job Performance has dropped below 50%. Currently nationwide, Trump job approval is at 47.0%, Disapprove 49.3%. The 47.3% is the highest overall approval percentage ever or since he took office. How long will this improvement last, I don't know? But I'm certainly going to keep an eye on it.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_trump_job_approval-6179.html

I would wager it is all due to the public's perception of how he is handling the pandemic. Public Approval of President Trump's Handling of the Coronavirus: Approve 50.6% Disapprove 44.9%

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls...virus-7088.html

Disapprove 44.9% It isn’t that the views of Republicans and Democrats have changed on Trump. Independents have finally seen Trump act more presidential since the Corona Virus has set in than acting like the uncouth, raunchy wrestler from the WWE as he has done since he first entered the race for the presidency.

Trump joins AOC in the Socialist party to battle the virus! As I predicted, he is moving far to the left in a move to politically isolate the Bidenvirus-2020.

Trump takes over GM

Quote:
US President Donald Trump has ordered General Motors to make ventilators for coronavirus patients after attacking the car giant's chief executive.

He invoked the Korean War-era Defense Production Act, which allows a president to force companies to make products for national defence.

But on Friday he said in a statement: "The virus is too urgent to allow the give-and-take of the contracting process to continue to run its normal course."

Earlier in the day he took to Twitter to complain that GM had lowered the number of ventilators they had promised to deliver from 40,000 to 6,000 and had wanted "top dollar".

He also criticised GM chief executive Mary Barra, saying things were "always a mess" with her at the helm of the Detroit-based auto manufacture.

Derided? Dismissed? What would you say the appropriate word would be for Biden’s ‘Italians have it, it hasn’t helped them with the virus’ debate statements?

One wonders what life would be like for Italians had they not had their healthcare system.
I guess we’ll be finding out though.

Hopefully we’ll be getting the verbs right.

That would create martyrs. Many on the Right are itching for a scenario featuring an Apex Martyr, as a trigger for widespread violence and an overthrow. Not saying they are automatically guaranteed success, however in our current vulnerable state, the damage would be equal to the schism that gave us Shi'ia versus Sunni.
