Trump and the people running his Trump 2020 campaign are cynical SOB's and are very aware of the racial demographics of COVID-19 deaths.

Its one reason they have taken control of the CDC data. It not only keeps records of positive COVID-19 results, it also includes gender, race and age data.

He’s clearly got the message that he needs suburban moderate votes. He’ll soften, preach masks, promise tax breaks, etc. then if he wins turn the douche meter back up to ten.

Yesterday morning I was bemoaning the current state of affairs to my wife and it occurred to me what’s going on and what the local rags (What we called newspapers) along with network (non-cable broadcast news) were buzzing about.

In the last two weeks:
The USS Bonhomme Richard, a tactical aircraft carrier burned for 5 days and listed while in the San Diego Navy yard;
The Trump administration announced it was taking the CDC out of the COVID -19 data collect loop with data going directly to The White House;
The Trump administration thru the DOJ finally admitted the Dept of HLS has unidentified security teams detaining people without charges in Portland;
ProPublica and other news sources have uncovered Billion$ in bailout funds went to Trump donors, many of whom didn’t qualify;
Trump appointed a donor and former CEO of Yellow Freight to the USPS board who favors privatization of the USPS

But on a Sunday interview Trump is bragging about how he “aced” a competency test.

Yeah, things are this bad.

The more I see this stuff from his campaign the more excited I get to vote for him in November. Weird how just behaving like a mature adult could be such an effective campaign.

Trump when asked about schools: "We have a national strategy for opening schools, but it's mostly up the governors, but kids don't transmit it, there's lots of studies, I was just handed a study as I walked in that housing prices are up 21%."


Seriously. That may not be word for word, but I think it is pretty close to how he answered a question about schools by talking about housing prices.

If I didn’t know better he was taking credit for a housing inventory shortage?

I get that he identifies with the people who make money in real estate, but housing prices being up while the economy is on the brink and many people are struggling to pay rents/mortgages strikes me as decidedly undesirable.

Great seller's market, though!

my wife showed me that clip this morning and I literally could not stop laughing.

if it was just some random guy on the street, you'd feel bad for him. When it's someone responsible for tens of thousands of dead Americas, the worst economy since The Great Depression, allowing US soliders to be murdered for money, locking children in cages, etc - my empathy quotient isn't quite as high.

Good bit of info from Dana Bash at CNN. Said the people she’s spoken to within his re-election inner circle have been trying to convince him his opponent is not Joe Biden. It’s The coronavirus and it’s beating him. Badly. He’s starting to realize he needs to change course or he’ll lose. We’ll see how this plays out. Can he help himself? He’s still painting a picture of BS, just in a better, less combative tone. I’m sure he’ll get better poll numbers with the tone change. This thing ain’t over folks. Never was of course. November is soooooo far away.

I can't imagine that he can keep that tone up for 3 weeks, let alone 3 months. If he does, it will show restraint that he has never shown before. Even if he does, it won't be anything close to enough. He will need it to magically go away, have a vaccine perfected and fully distributed well in advance of the election, and have the economy snap right back to pre-covid levels. All that, and the continued softer tone, is needed to significantly reduce the gap, but is still likely not enough.

But wouldn't that hurt Trump if it magically goes away, because rational people won't have any fears of going out to vote, no absurd claims of mail in voter fraud, etc.

Maybe it's like baseball where the pros make a routine out look easy and then you see a bar league soft ball team play and then you realize how hard a routine play really is. Before them no one was making attack ads this effective against Trump. I think the fact the message resonates so well with us makes us feel like oh yeah that's so simple anyone could do that.

I think they'd admit that. One of the things they've said is that largely just use Trump's own words.

I think it is kind of like comedians. A comedian doesn't often come up with a revolutionary topic, but it comes down to the presentation. The good ones have the right way of presenting something that makes it funny.

In Bexar County TX the GOP is eating its own.

County GOP Chairperson Cyhthia Brehm was beaten by a 2-1 margin in a runoff for the Bexar County GOP Chair office by another candidate. She's refusing to certify the vote.

Things to look out for come November nation wide.

I buy into that. I think apathy is also a big problem and the narrow margin it takes to win. We’ve seen the cheating in Georgia and the suppression in Florida. Repubs don’t have to cheat in every state just the battle ground state’s which are already purple and 100k votes or less can tilt it.

I know at least three people who are voting for Trump based on “knowing” that Obama and George Clooney molest children on a private island.

I’m not kidding.
