Mattis just came out against Trump.

The Republican civil war cometh, and it cometh real soon. Vote Trump out in November and watch the establishment and the alt-right wipe each other out.

Ellison said in the press conference that he would not be the prosecutor. He said that he had no experience in prosecutions but that he could help the team as he has experience being on the other side and could help them identify how the case would be attacked.

The consensus from the interviewed legal team was that this would help get a compromise verdict of murder 3. They felt that the jury wouldn’t convict on the highest charge, but would convict on the next charge below. So by adding the murder 2 charge, they would get murder 3. If they didn’t add the charge, they would drop to manslaughter.

But as the City Attorney liked to tell me, I only graduated from Dave’s auto mechanic and law school.

Trump holds a one point lead over Joe Biden in Texas, according to a new poll Wednesday. The Quinnipiac University poll showed Trump leading 44-43.

That’s a ton of undecideds and those will probably go red. But if Trump has to spend money defending Texas, that’s money he won’t have in Michigan.

Fox News poll out tonight has Biden winning by 9 in Wisconsin and smaller leads in Arizona (+4) and Ohio (+2).

Monday evening was VERY scary, but I’ve had a growing feeling the past two days that, even though these next five months will continue to be totally insane, something really good may come out of all this madness.

I believe if Biden takes both MI and PA (very likely), he only needs to win one of those you mentioned. (Or additionally FL).

So... haha... the version of the Bible that Trump held up at his photo op is a “liberal” translation of the Bible that most evangelical conservatives find offensive. So, he can’t even get his theocratic fascist displays of power right.

This is just too delicious. Somebody ask Jeffress and Graham for a comment. Or not.

I think he picked it up by mistake when he was in the hotel room with Stormy Daniels.

That makes a lot of sense, actually. Jeez, step away to cook and I miss this, Mattis, and Jimmy Carter (!!). Trump is gonna have himself an epic toilet tweet tantrum tonight.
