And President Trump appears to be his own worst enemy. On Thursday, the president said that China, too, should investigate his opponent Joe Biden.

#BoycottHallmark trends on Twitter after Hallmark Network caved to anti-LGBTQ group
The Hallmark Channel is facing a public boycott after caving to an anti-LGBTQ group that demanded the network not show an ad showing two women marrying each other.
"The Hallmark Channel pulled four TV ads featuring brides kissing each other on Thursday after a targeted campaign by a conservative group," The New York Times reported Saturday.
"Asked to explain why the ads had been rejected, an employee of Hallmark’s parent company said the channel did not accept ads 'that are deemed controversial,' according to an email exchange shared with The New York Times. A spokesman for Hallmark said the women’s 'public displays of affection' violated the channel’s policies, but he declined to comment on why a nearly identical ad featuring a bride and groom kissing was not rejected," the newspaper reported.
