What we don’t but know is how a lot President Trump will do to perform the identical activity. However a brand new ballot exhibits simply how necessary that may be within the waning days of his presidency. Certainly, it may be probably the most important remaining query of the Trump period.

Distributing The Coronavirus Vaccine Will Require Planning — And A Lot Extra Cash

The challenges will likely be as a lot logistical as they’ll be scientific.

The Three Strains of the GOP: Crazies, Quiets, and Hostages. And Yeah, They All Suck.

On this twilight of Trumpism, Republicans have proven no extra spine than they ever have. And most, in fact, are worse than spineless.

The primary group, the crazies, is the one which has flourished below Trump and Trumpism. They’re the individuals who would begin firing squads if needed. They’re the Trump cheerleaders, the worst and ugliest of the Trumpian sycophants, the Matt Gaetzes, the Louie Gohmerts, the Lou Dobbses, the Maria Bartiromos. These persons are completely happy to trip the elevator all the way down to the basement with Trump….

Then there are the quiets, the individuals who know higher however are too cowardly to do the correct factor. These are the individuals who stay in mortal concern of alienating the bottom. Folks like Mitch McConnell, Roy Blunt, and all these senators no one’s ever heard of from Idaho and people locations that shouldn’t have two senators to start with. Blunt, of Missouri, appeared on CNN’s State of the Union and was too pathetic and cowardly to name Joe Biden “the president-elect” even though he’s fairly indisputably the president-elect.

Lin Wooden and Sidney Powell are completely damaging. Each Georgia conservative who cares about America MUST vote within the runoff. Their dont vote technique will cripple America
