‘Toddler’ Trump drowned in ridicule after he angrily whines about ‘fake’ polls showing he’d lose

Published

on

President Donald Trump dismissed polls showing him losing to various Democratic candidates as “fake” — and he was met with ridicule.

New polling by Quinnipiac University shows Trump losing head-to-head matchups with six Democratic hopefuls, just days after a New York Times report found Trump had instructed aides to lie about his poor performance in internal polls.

Trump took those efforts to mislead to a new level by writing off those polls as a media conspiracy to undermine his re-election campaign.

“The Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today,” Trump tweeted. “Thank goodness we can fight back on Social Media. Their new weapon of choice is Fake Polling, sometimes referred to as Suppression Polls (they suppress the numbers). Had it in 2016, but this is worse.”

“The Fake (Corrupt) News Media said they had a leak into polling done by my campaign which, by the way and despite the phony and never ending Witch Hunt, are the best numbers WE have ever had,” he added. “They reported Fake numbers that they made up & don’t even exist. WE WILL WIN AGAIN!”

Other Twitter users weren’t persuaded.

Others noted that four of the justices themselves are up for re-election, and thus their own candidacies stand to be affected by the ruling.

Texas Supreme Court: Lack of immunity to coronavirus alone isn’t enough for mail-in ballot

Published

on

The Texas Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that a lack of immunity to the new coronavirus does not qualify a voter to apply for a mail-in ballot.

In the latest twist in the legal fight over voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic, the court agreed with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that the risk of contracting the virus does not meet the state’s qualifications for voting by mail.

“We agree with the State that a voter’s lack of immunity to COVID-19, without more, is not a ‘disability’ as defined by the Election Code,” the court wrote. “But the State acknowledges that election officials have no responsibility to question or investigate a ballot application that is valid on its face.”
