Holy sh*t I have David Pakman on my FB feed and he is covering Trump live in Iowa.

In a nutshell, Trump sounds really bad (raspy voice) and is talking like he is the drunk guy at the end of the bar. Seriously unhinged and rambling. Still going on about Hunter Biden and China and has been talking about it for 10 minutes. There is no structure to what he is saying and he is all over the place. The crowd except for a few moments are quite subdue. Even when they are cheering it (maybe it is the sound) but it is not rapturous or over the top.
Is this it? https://www.c-span.org/video/?476881-1/president-trump-holds-campaign-rally-des-moines-iowa

Yep that is the one.

Haha David Pakman decided it wasn't worth following any more and shut down his coverage. Trump was too off the planet. He really is mentally unstable.

I didn’t hear the raspy voice but that may have been earlier. he just repeats the same stuff over and over. Yawn.

Not a good day for Rudy Giuliani. He accidentally posted a video on youtube showing him mocking Asians that even included the old "Ah-So!!" we've listened to for a lifetime and is now getting pushback from Asian politicians and leaders.

Then his daughter wrote a scathing commentary for Vanity Fair:
To anyone who feels overwhelmed or apathetic about this election, there is nothing I relate to more than desperation to escape corrosive political discourse. As a child, I saw firsthand the kind of cruel, selfish politics that Donald Trump has now inflicted on our country. It made me want to run as far away from them as possible. But trust me when I tell you: Running away does not solve the problem. We have to stand and fight. The only way to end this nightmare is to vote. There is hope on the horizon, but we’ll only grasp it if we elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

... I may not be able to change my father’s mind, but together, we can vote this toxic administration out of office.
If being the daughter of a polarizing mayor who became the president’s personal bulldog has taught me anything, it is that corruption starts with “yes-men” and women, the cronies who create an echo chamber of lies and subservience to maintain their proximity to power. We’ve seen this ad nauseam with Trump and his cadre of high-level sycophants (the ones who weren’t convicted, anyway).
I hope he's not still coughing his head off along with all of this going on along with the computer "found" at the repair shop.

The administration rejected a disaster declaration for six California wildfires. https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/15/poli...rm=link&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twcnnbrk

Trump is such a petty, petty man!
So all of California is blaming climate change rather than forest management problems. But even if is climate change why won’t california do anything about it like ban combustion engine public transport?
Do you know LA has ONE electric bus?

They say climate change is real but have one electric bus and they cancelled their rail project!

how could trump tweet that twitter is down is twitter is down?
Angela Merkel once said of Vladimir Putin that he was detached from reality. The same could be said of Donald Trump.

It’s because California is a state he has no chance of winning in the election. A perfect argument to abolish the electoral college right there.
Of course. But if you look at things at a more granular level, you will see that at least one of the fires was in an area, Siskiyou County, that is heavily Republican. (I'm not sure about all the other fires, but parts of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and San Diego Counties are also predominantly Republican.) Trump won't carry California, but he may be endangering the chances of candidates for the House of Representatives and the Legislature. Not that he cares.

Oh look, it's Pamela Karlan's hypothetical from the impeachment hearings, in real life.

You may recall that Republicans were very offended at the time, because she said that Trump could name his son Barron but not make him a baron.

Has California done anything different in forest management or climate change after all the previous declarations? No. It doesn’t do anything different. It makes no changes it doesn’t do anything to mitigate. Nothing.

One good reason to abolish the EC is to get rid of this inaccurate idea of red states v. blue states. It forces this fake picture of America.

Here's one interactive map that is more accurate:

But if you abolish states in presidential elections do you also abolish states in the house too? And do you get rid of senate?

A timeline of QAnon violence:


They had a segment on it last night on MSNBC and had interviewed a suburban mom for that purpose. She's convinced it's all true because somehow there are photos. It was scary as hell to watch. How do we fight that once Trump is gone?

I saw that interview.

It sounded to me like she had been watching doctored kiddy porn published by the Qfolks. In which case, I hope someone jails them for a long time. Having Kiddy porn is not legal.

Its sometimes interesting to hear from people on the ground who are affected by what Trump does. My co-worker talked with a person we work closely with who works at the VA and she said that due to Trump's executive order they are not only not allowed to do any diversity trainings, they aren't allowed to discuss diversity and issues of racism in any trainings. She said the sudden requirement that none of this even be mentioned felt like Nazi Germany to her.

While @Tony Wheeler doesn't care about ratings, Trump does, exactly as I said he would. He's raging that Biden apparently had a million more viewers even with Trump on 3 different NBC platforms. Certainly has his priorities straight doesn't he when YKW is soaring again.
Well, here we go with circling back. I cannot believe after all these comments that you do not understand that my choosing to watch both on network television did absolutely zero to Trumps (or Biden) rating count.

You can watch whatever you choose to watch.
I don't know how else to spell it out to you. The Nielsen ratings are a very small sample of people who have agreed to have their televisions tracked. I am not one of them. You are not one of them AFAIK. Guess what? Had you watched Trump all night, the numbers presented today would've been the exact same.

So stop with the BS I 'don't care about ratings'.

I always wondered how they tracked ratings. However, when I got home last night I watched about 5 min on youtube. I don’t bother with cable/satellite in Canada as it’s expensive and I prefer Netflix etc.

A townhouse on a major intersection on the way to the interstate had a Trump flag hanging from their balcony that said "No More BS" (BS spelled out) today they have added a second Trump flag that says "F*$& Your Feelings" (F word spelled out). I hope every evangelical that drives by those flags explains how Christian like that is to their children.
