New poll shows Penn. voters think ‘Philly Phanatic’ is more qualified than Trump

Published

on

A recent survey found that Donald Trump may have difficulty winning over the Philadelphia Phillies fan demographic.

The poll was conducted by Public Policy Polling, Philly.com reports. The pollsters asked voters who would be most qualified for the office of president and the Phillie Phanatic won 46 to 40 percent.

An additional 14 percent said they weren’t sure who’d be better in the match-up.

The polling company surveyed just over 1,100 registered voters between June 3 and June 5.

Philly.com reports PPP takes a “liberal slant” but was the most accurate in predicting the 2012 election outcome.

The poll shows Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton, about even with him in a head-to-head match-up in the state. Clinton gains two points against Trump in a scenario in which he chooses Rick Santorum as his running mate, though.

Trump may have mistaken the pollsters for a trade pact during a speech this week, when an audience member shouted “No TPP,” meaning “No Trans-Pacific Partnership.”

Or maybe not.

According to the New Yorker, Trump responded, “No PPP. You’re right about that.” Then he said, “And you mean, no pee-pee.”

On Tuesday, at a press conference, President Donald Trump mused aloud whether he should start taking insulin.

"I don’t use insulin. Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it," he said.

"But I know a lot of people are very badly affected, right?" he added a second later. "Unbelievable."

Insulin is a crucial hormone the regulates blood sugar. People who are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes are incapable of producing it in their pancreas, and thus must administer it to themselves regularly through injections or pumps.

Published

on

On Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Justice Department officials are closing insider trading investigations into three senators — Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

However, a fourth probe, into insider trading allegations against Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), is reportedly ongoing.

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation began the investigations two months ago, as reports emerged that several members of Congress, their spouses or their investment advisers sold hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock after lawmakers attended closed-door briefings about the threat posed by the new coronavirus," reported Aruna Viswanatha. "Some of those trades spared lawmakers as much as hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses as stocks sank by mid-March."

White House insider says Trump spent Memorial Day weekend ‘in a rage’ – and sees himself as COVID-19’s biggest victim

Published

An inside source speaking to Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman says President Trump spent his Memorial Day weekend "in a f*cking rage" over what he sees is his unfair treatment over his response to the coronavirus outbreak. Even as the death toll neared 100,000 and unemployment swelled to over 38 million, Trump still sees himself as the victim, Sherman writes.

"Trump’s outburst reflected his growing frustration that, at this stage of the race, he is losing to Joe Biden," writes Sherman. "According to a Republican briefed on the campaign’s internal polls, Trump is trailing Biden by double digits among women over 50 in six swing states. 'Trump knows the numbers are bad. It’s why he’s thrashing about,' the Republican said."
