It looks as if Biden is solidifying his support in the Upper Midwest, apparently taking advantage of Trump’s utter inability to grapple with the fact that the ‘Rona is getting worse, not better. This has me thinking about the brute fact that Biden’s...
Amanda MarcotteTrump insists coronavirus is somehow a hoax meant to hurt him. Truth is that I think @drfarls is right: It was a political gift that he could have used to soar to victory, if he'd taken it seriously. But he's bad at this, like he's bad at business.
Trump's latest ludicrous lie isn't some brilliant campaign strategy — it's just ego-fluffing, and it won't work
Amanda MarcotteTrump is doubling down on his insistence that he can make the coronavirus pandemic disappear simply by taking credit for "ending" it. But cases are up 39%, hospitalizations are up 46% and 500,000 people got it this past week.
When his skyscraper proved a disappointment, Donald Trump defaulted on his loans, sued his bank, got much of the debt forgiven — and largely avoided paying taxes on it.
Amanda MarcotteGetting lost in the shuffle, but worth reading how Trump managed to get banks to forgive him $300 million in debt while untold numbers of Americans were facing foreclosure due to the 2008 economic collapse.
Tuesday is the last day to safely mail your ballot. Here’s what to do if you missed the deadline.
Amanda MarcotteIf you still have a mail-in ballot, the functional deadline for getting it in the mail and realistically expecting it to be counted was yesterday. However, that doesn't mean you can't vote absentee.
Every time the president ramps up his violent rhetoric, every time he fires up Twitter to launch another broadside against me, my family and I see a surge of vicious attacks sent our way.
Amanda MarcotteThis piece is remarkable for how she never says, not once, how it felt to be the target of a misogynist murder plot. The closest she gets is talking about how it impacted her family.
The Supreme Court has just disenfranchised a significant number of voters in Wisconsin, who will not be able to get their votes counted because of deliberate Republican sabotage. I have a thread detailing Kagan’s dissent here, but these are the key...
Amanda MarcotteI don't know that I share Trump and Kavanaugh's faith that late-arriving ballots will break big for Biden. Early vote totals suggest Democrats are fired up.
Over 225,000 are dead, but Trump is still committed to his March theory that it's all a hoax aimed at hurting him
Amanda MarcotteWith one week until the election, Trump's final pitch to voters is what he wanted in March: That the concern over the coronavirus pandemic is a "hoax" perpetuated by the media to hurt him. There are over 225,000 dead.
El Paso County in Texas enacted a curfew Sunday as a surge in Covid-19 cases left hospitals and ICUs in the area at full capacity and forced officials to seek additional morgue space.
Amanda MarcotteI don't get back there much these days, but my heart breaks for my hometown of El Paso, which has been hammered so badly by the Trump era, from the mass shooting to the concentration camp to now the coronavirus.
Trump had his Marie Antoinette moment during a rally in North Carolina, complaining he's so sick of all the COVID19 talk.
Amanda MarcotteAt this point, I think Trump is simply testing how far he can go and his voters will still support him. The answer is 100% that they'd be fine with genocide, so long as he kept triggering the liberals.
