Absolutely stunning. Who would have thought post-Labor Day the Trump campaign would be broke (after raising over $1 billion) and the Biden campaign flush with cash? Bloomberg News reports:
on by huge investments in staff and operations.
- What in the heck is going on at Newsweek? Today, Newsweek online published an article titled "As Trump Boosts Ad Spend, Biden Unveils $65 Million Splurge in Battleground States". The focus of the Newsweek article is on the Trump campaign's response to the news that it has pulled advertising from key battleground states, which fact was detailed in the Bloomberg story cited above. The Newsweek article, however, just reports on vague plans as to the types of commercials the Trump campaign plans to run in the battleground states at some point in the future.
- Further, contrary to the Newsweek headline, Biden's TV spending in battleground states was outlined in the original Bloomberg News article. It is not a new effort in response to these vague plans of the Trump campaign to increase its ad spending at some time in the future. The Newsweek headline could not be more dishonest if it were written by the Trump campaign.
- What idiot on the Trump campaign thought it was a good idea to put the President in a town hall format answering questions from ordinary people?
- News today is that Michael Caputo is taking a two month leave of absence as spokesman for Health and Human Services in order to focus on his health and well-being of his family. I have no love for Caputo, but he clearly is a person who has mental health issues and needs help. Let's hope he gets it.
