    This is the first time I've heard anything about a bad economic report. In comparison, this is about the fifth or sixth time I've heard about Trump tossing out the notion of election delays.

    Based on that, I'm inclined to agree that it was bait and that The Usual Suspects fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

    The Commerce Dept reporting a 32.9% drop in GDP is what I was referring to.

    You didn't know a bad economic report was coming? My response to KG was going to be that there can't possibly be a person alive in this country that didn't know a bad economic report was coming, so there's no way Trump could possibly be distracting from something obvious to everyone, but now, KG may have been right.

    It doesn't matter why he would do it, it doesn't matter if he fails to do it, the fact he is trying to do it is sufficient. The traitors to this nation that routinely justify Trump's excess will likely support this as well. And I have no interest whatsoever in their justifications. What I want to be is on record with the simple fact that I've warned you about this president from day 1. And as an election nears that he will lose unless he cheats in some form or fashion, how far he will go to retain his power will become more and more evident as the days progress.

    He has proposed removing term limits. He has infiltrated the DOJ with Cronies willing to do his bidding, to let his friends convictions by judge and jury be overlooked, to punish his enemies. He has put unvetted people beholden only to him in charge of the DHS and leveraged this already questionable agency's power into his own personal nationalized police force. He has gutted relations with NATO to the delight of Putin, and now is removing Troops from Germany. He has twice welcomed foreign powers that are our enemies to interfere on his behalf wrt our elections and done his best to deny their involvement. He has brought this nation to its knees by refusing to deal with the Covid Pandemic according to science and best practice. And now he is putting in to remove the most important element of our republic, free elections themselves.

    He is a traitor to and a clear and present danger to this nation.

    This is not his first effort to cement his position as president for life. I urge all of you that have a mind and have not been blinded by your hatred of liberalism to accept Trump's danger to our nation and our way of life to do all you legally can to make sure this man is out of office by January 2021. To make sure his efforts to undermine the election fail clearly and cleanly.

    It took CNN four paragraphs of hand wringing hyperbole before quoting Trump's actual words where all he did was ask a question. As usual, the hyperventilating hysterics from liberals doesn't match reality. Another classic case of "much ado about nothing".

    To be fair, I'm Canadian so my focus is more on the Mickey Mouse Outfit we have up here in the Great White North.

    You'd think competent opposition to the Cheeto-in-Chief would try and focus on this given Trump's fanboys were boasting about his economy. Instead, I've heard nothing about economic problems and VASTLY more about how, "TrUmP iS tRyInG tO cHaNgE tHe ElEcTiOn, ThE dIrTy FaCsIsT!!!"

    Everybody knows the draconian response to the pandemic has destroyed the economy, so a bad economic report is a "dog bites man" story.

    No - he can't do it w/o the help of his minions in congress, and a large number of them have shown they have limits by delivering a rather firm 'no' to the suggestion.

    Which is a good thing, as long as it lasts.

    Another lobster speaks. Keep in mind that once you have been completely numbed to anything and everything he says, no matter how absurd, or dangerous, he is free to choose which of those things to make good on while folks like you defend his destruction of the framework that is required for our country to remain free from tyranny.

    The idea that a suggestion that would undermine the very fabric of our society are tolerated by Trump supporters shows just haw far down the hole we are, and how dangerously close we are to losing our country and its freedoms. This kind of talk can't be excused, it is far too dangerous. And only fools ignorant of history would believe such a comment from the President of the US can be treated as without consequence.

    Chaotic Void isn't in or from our country, so it's not too surprising for him to not know such details.
