In a dire, nine-minute indictment of Mr. Trump’s foreign policy and what Mr. Sasse called his “deficient” values, the senator said the president had mistreated women and alienated important allies around the globe, been a profligate spender, ignored human rights and treated the pandemic like a “P.R. crisis.” He predicted that a loss by Mr. Trump on Election Day, less than three weeks away, “looks likely,” and said that Republicans would face steep repercussions for having backed him so staunchly over four tumultuous years.
"It's been three weeks since Trump and Biden first shared a debate stage. And that first debate was an unmitigated disaster for the President as his bullying, interrupting and white-hot rhetoric triggered a decidedly negative reaction in the electorate.

"Trump's refusal to participate in a virtual second debate now means that Thursday night's head-to-head in Nashville, Tennessee, is Trump's last chance to alter in some way the operating dynamic of the race.

"It's not totally clear how Trump will do that."

Trump would have to change. That is extremely unlikely. His paranoid narcissism won't allow that.

As predicted by Republican Senator Sasse, "it now increasingly looks like Trump's unpopularity with the electorate could also cost his party the Senate and drive them even further into the House minority.

"Inside Elections, a non-partisan handicapping tip sheet run by Nathan Gonzales, and he has revised its seat projections in the Senate and the House in Democrats' favor.

"Gonzales is now predicting a four- to six-seat Democratic gain in the Senate, which, if it comes to pass, means that Democrats will win the Senate majority whether Biden wins the White House or not.

"On the House side, Gonzales now says Democrats are likely to gain between 10 and 20 seats, which could well double their current majority. (Republicans need a net gain of 17 seats to win the House majority, which is, well, not happening.)"

There is one major difference between Trump's campaign and Biden's campaign.

Trump is campaigning in states he won in 2016, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona. Why? Because he loves the adulation from his adoring admirers, and he is incapable of broadening his base. He speaks only to his rabid followers.

Biden is campaigning in states Trump won in 2016, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona. Why? Because he is winning. Trump is on the run.

Recently, Trump offered these brilliant pronouncements. "People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots."

"Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we'd have 500,000 deaths."

Now he is claiming the election, and Thursday's Presidential debate, are rigged against him. He knows he will lose both.

If to broaden his base, he said those things in states where did not win, Trump would be laughed off the podium.

Trump truly is a clown, afraid to face the general population who regard him as an idiot.

It is difficult to accept the fact this fool is our President.

Vote early!

CNBC reports,

  • President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will at times have their microphones temporarily cut during their next debate, the event’s sponsors announced Monday.
  • When one of the two candidates is given a chance to provide a two-minute answer to each of the six debate topics, his opponent’s microphone will be muted, the commission said.

When one of the two candidates is given a chance to provide a two-minute answer to each of the six debate topics, his opponent’s microphone will be muted, the commission said.
CNN reports, "On Monday night, the Commission on Presidential Debates unanimously approved a new rule for Thursday night's final debate that will make it virtually impossible for Donald Trump to be, well, Donald Trump.

"Which, well, makes sense after the first debate back in late September when Trump interrupted Biden -- and moderator Chris Wallace -- relentlessly, making the entire thing a spectacular failure.

"The question the new rule prompts, however, is how the heck is Trump going to actually debate under the new rules? Dating back to the primary and general election debates in the 2016 campaign, Trump's only real strategy appears to be interrupting with jabs -- usually personal -- against his opponent or opponents. His ability to stand and talk about issues for 120 seconds -- or stand and listen as his opponents talk for an uninterrupted two minutes -- is basically zero.

"Trump interrupted Biden or Wallace 128 times in the course of the 90-minute debate, according to a count kept by Slate's Jeremy Stahl. Which is nuts!

"Constant interruption is best understood not as a thing that Trump sometimes does in debates but, essentially, as his entire debate strategy. Trump uses his non-stop interrupting to throw his opponent of their message, to distract from difficult topics for him, to bully his way through things.

"The truth is that when he is forced into any semblance of an actual debate, Trump struggles mightily -- as his lack of preparation and knowledge about the job is badly exposed."

It's becoming obvious Biden and his crackhead son used Biden's position as VP to enrich themselves. Totally obvious and both of them should be in cuffs

This is surreal. Trump is asking his personal attorney, Bill Barr, who doubles as the U.S. Attorney General, to investigate his political rival, Joe Biden, two weeks before the election.

Trump must really be desperate. No one thought even he would have the balls to make such a blatant demand of the Department of Justice.

The A.P. reports, "Trump on Tuesday called on Attorney General William Barr to immediately launch an investigation into unverified claims about Democrat Joe Biden and his son Hunter, effectively demanding that the Justice Department muddy his political opponent and abandon its historic resistance to getting involved in elections.

"With just two weeks to go before Election Day, Trump for the first time explicitly called on Barr to investigate the Bidens and even pointed to the nearing Nov. 3 election as reason that Barr should not delay taking action. Trump has been leveling accusations of corruption against Biden without verified evidence for months, but is stepping up the pressure in the final days of the campaign."

“We’ve got to get the attorney general to act,” Trump said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” “He’s got to act, and he’s got to act fast. He’s got to appoint somebody. This is major corruption, and this has to be known about before the election.”

Not once has Trump explained what Joe Biden did wrong or the reasons for the investigation. This is simply another phantom conspiracy, one among many. Several times Trump has accused his political rivals of wrongdoing, but he never explains what he is talking about.

Thus a phantom conspiracy. Trump can't go into detail because there isn't any detail.

It will be interesting to see Barr's reaction. How does he squirm out of this one?

At the White House today Trump ended a fiery interview taping with CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” then launched an attack against the interviewer on Twitter for not wearing a mask, and threatened to post the interview before it aired.

The drama unfolded after Trump was frustrated with the line of questioning and how the interview was being conducted, said one person familiar with the episode, while another in the room described the president as “pissed.”

Trump spent more than 40 minutes with CBS News correspondent Lesley Stahl, and did not proceed to shoot a second portion of the interview that included Vice President Mike Pence.

The incident was first reported by CNN. CBS News did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment. When reached for comment, the White House did not dispute CNN's reporting.
