Trump has contempt for Democrats. Trump has even more contempt for Republicans who do not support him. But what group does Trump have the most contempt for? Well that answer would be Trump's own supporters. Trump sees his supporters as nothing but chumps. A "chump" is defined as a foolish or easily deceived person. Trump believes his chumps can be conned into doing pretty much anything, including risking their lives in support of Dear Leader. And he would be right.
CNN reports on an indoor rally Trump held in Nevada:
Let me stop here and emphasize what Trump is saying. He is saying the rallies are okay because he IS far away from audience members who might be infected. Of course, his supporters, packed into the arena are not socially distanced and are at a great risk for contracting Covid-19 from others who are infected. But Trump does not care about that. He's only concerned about himself. The article continues:
- MSNBC had a very good story on the signature mismatch authentication issue as to mail-in ballots that I've tried to alert people to. I couldn't find a link to the story. CNN though today has a story on its website about the issue. CNN also has an editorial suggesting people reverse course and vote in-person instead of by mail because counting mail-in ballots will result in a delay in the results. That delay will allow Trump to delegitimize the result as fraudulent. Yes, Trump will do that. Absolutely, he will.
- News this weekend is that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is putting $100 million into Florida to help Biden win that state. Biden and Trump are running even in Florida. Even though Biden is doing better with white voters than Hillary Clinton did in 2016, Biden is struggling to connect with Latino voters, in particular Cuban-Americans, in Florida. The state is a must win for Trump. There is no scenario in which Trump can win a majority in the Electoral College without winning Florida. While Florida is not needed for a Biden EC win, it would be a knockout punch.
