Per Worldometer, there were 1,119 COVID deaths on Tuesday in the US, which is the first time the country broke 1,000 deaths in a day in almost a month and a half (we got very close a day or two last week).

Additionally, with over 67,000 new cases on Tuesday the US has broken 4 million total cases.

Trump’s Request of an Ambassador: Get the British Open for Me. Trump asks a US ambassador to ask the British Government to move the British Open to his golf course to enrich him.

Let’s see, Trump asks an ambassador to pressure a foreign government to do him a favor and pushes out the career diplomat that objects. It’s Deja Vu all over again.

Oh, but this time it’s not a political favor, it’s to try and put money into his pocket.

The R&A are way smarter than that. His mere asking guarantees his tracks will not see an Open for awhile., Obvious corruption notwithstanding

Today Biden introduced a $775 billion dollar plan to help provide child care and help the elderly

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...OWY7xjX4Je6AWA


Obviously that's great and better than what we have now, but doesn't go nearly far enough. We need child care and/or early education from birth. Invest in children as early as possible.

That won't do, life only matters from the moment sperm hits the egg until a baby actually comes out don't you know?

Suburban Cincinnati. It was a Trump +6 district in 2016. So Biden is running 11% ahead of Clinton's showing. Suburbs. Open revolt. You know the story.

I saw a tweet earlier, saying Republicans only care for you if you are a fetus or a Confederate statue

They didn't push leaners, which split 3:2 to Biden. So, you've got about 6% of the two-party vote that are probably your "shy Trump" voters and the other 10% lean toward Biden. It fits with the notion Trump's support is capped somewhere in the 44-46% range (and that roughly 55% of the electorate are pretty set on not voting for Trump).
