It wasn’t just the racism, though, although that in of itself is pretty disqualifying. I listed about a dozen other things that should’ve made it a non-sequitor for any moral person to vote for Trump.

Use the extreme example: is there any case for forgiving someone if they voted for Hitler? We’re not quite to that extreme in this case, but we’re a decent way along that path.

Agreed, but the key isn’t policy ads. It’s re-telling Biden’s life story as a kid from Scranton.

BLM leader calls for destroying all church stained glass windows with a white Jesus and destroying all white Jesus statutes.

If they do that, they lose virtually all support in the white community that they have gained.

Reminds me of the Bernie supporters. You have a chance to make meaningful change and you throw it all away because you can’t get everything all at once.

The story was corrected today to state that Shaun King is not a BLM Leader.

President Donald Trump insisted on Tuesday that he was serious when he revealed that he had directed his administration to slow coronavirus testing in the United States — shattering the defenses of senior White House aides who argued Trump’s remarks were made in jest.

“I don’t kid. Let me just tell you. Let me make it clear,” Trump told reporters, when pressed on whether his comments at a campaign event Saturday in Tulsa, Okla., were intended as a joke.

This may be the first presidential election won by a guy living in the basement just letting his opponent repeatedly shoot himself in the foot.

Those are all great reasons to vote for him.

None of those are going to energize the left. Do you think the left is energized right now by recognizing good cops or wants to hear that the current healthcare system is working?

Yep, there you go

Remember that story that 3 cops in NYC had their milkshakes poisoned in a Shake Shack?

Completely fake news, blown up by their union (not them) to cry wolf and how they are "under attack", But you probably haven't seen this on social media as much as the initial story

Correct. He’s a Bernie Bros asshole who even Bernie Bros are beginning to spur on.
