USA Politics/Election Thread: Election Day is Nov. 3

Recommended Posts

I wonder what effect will be now that the orange clown won't be able to hold rallies? I'm sure is drooling masses would still show up if they could but most states are going to ban large gatherings for the foreseeable future.

 

He won't be able to use them to attack local candidates anymore, you have to wonder if that is enough to actually tip the scales in a few states.

Declaring this pandemic a national emergency is not being done because of the orange one, yet previous Democratic and Republican administrations declared emergencies in the past.

Trump to Declare National Emergency to Speed Virus Response 

 

(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency on Friday over the coronavirus outbreak, invoking the Stafford Act to open the door to more federal aid for states and municipalities, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The president said he will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. in Washington. Trump spoke Friday with Emmanuel Macron, the French president tweeted, about the pandemic, and agreed to organize a video conference with world leaders on Monday to coordinate research efforts on a vaccine and treatments and work on how to respond to the economic fallout.

Sucks for me because I posted something that was easily refuted.  Like right away.

 

It is a positive and yes, it should have been done earlier.  Better late than never.

I think the postponement of the Masters may just hit home the seriousness of the situation to TRUMP.  The guy loves golf and now the first golf major tournament of the year is postponed.

This should have happened weeks ago.

 

The problem here, and I absolutely take no pleasure in saying this... is that as a consequence we're probably going to see a higher contraction/fatality rate among Fox News/Trump supporters. 

 

Public safety has never even been on their radar. They have been encouraging people to completely ignore the problem and are directly responsible. 

 

What they have been doing is abhorrent.

At least travel from China was banned many weeks ago. Unlike our country. 

 

That consequence is quite the assumption as many millennials in general were (are?) not taking it seriously 

 

I doubt fatalities will be organized via political demographics anyway so who knows..

No doubt, Pence has heard the talk about Bone Spurs dumping him in favor of Nikki Haley in November....
