CNN undecided panel thinks Biden won overwhelmingly. Woah!

There were 70,000 positive Covid cases yesterday. That is as high as it has ever been. And this is a controllable virus -- look at New Zealand. Incompetent leadership in a crisis kills.

So if it doesn’t work, shall I say I told you so? Democracy is on the line. This behavior is pathetic.

He just confessed to a crime. On tv.

Two weeks from today -- the fate of the country hangs in the balance. If you have friends in a swing state, now is the time to call them. Help get out the vote with calls and texts. What we do in the next two weeks will ripple through history.

We are 330 days into this election and reporters are talking about the pivot. Amazing.

The October surprise is really not a surprise at all. It’s the virus’ third surge, that is now out of control because of the one person who didn’t see it coming - Trump.


A reminder- Ivanka and Jared use private emails for public business and this was barely a one day story in the media.

It seems a Republican campaign went to the houses of older Democrats, claimed to be officials, took their absentee ballots and got rid of them. The Republican “won” by 900 votes. It’s 2018. Every major newspaper should be on that story. #NC9 

You know what defeats the hatefulness of Trumpism? The largest electoral margin defeat since Goldwater. That is what he deserves. A humiliating, historic landslide loss. And that is actually possible.But it takes a bigger coalition than your twitter bubble. Build the army.

I hope Barack Obama just shows up places in the public eye every couple of weeks through the next election just to remind people what it was like to have a decent, intelligent, compassionate president. So they know we can have that again.

To attempt a Friday night massacre 5 months before an election means there’s a pretty big investigation they are trying to kill.

I am so looking forward to the day I don’t think about Donald Trump at all.

Just a reminder that if Dems take the Senate, Mitch McConnell is no longer Majority Leader, Chuck Grassley is no longer chair of Judiciary and Susan Collins is in the minority. Find a Senate race and start working.

I dare @realDonaldTrump  to hold a town hall with members of the public on health care. Retweet if you dare him too.
