Trump’s New Hampshire rally is an act of ‘biological warfare’: Portsmouth police commissioner

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s planned rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire has been postponed — and one public official in the city says that holding it would have been an act of “biological warfare.”

Appearing on CNN with host Kate Bolduan, Portsmouth Police Commissioner Stefany Shaheen outlined her concerns about having a large crowd of rowdy Trump supporters gathered into a tight space this weekend.

“I definitely took notice when you called the rally that is set for tomorrow as ‘biological warfare,'” Bolduan said. “What is your biggest concern with the president holding a rally in your city tomorrow?”

“The fact of the matter is, New Hampshire is one of only three states in the country right now that’s seeing a decline in COVID-19 cases,” replied Shaheen, who is the daughter of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). “We’ve worked very hard over the last five months doing everything we can, staying at home, wearing masks, washing hands and now to have a super spreader event like this rally.”

She pointed to the surge in cases in Tulsa, Oklahoma following the president’s rally last month as reason to worry. She then called out the president for putting his own supporters at risk even though he is surrounded by medical professionals who test everyone around him every day.

“The president lives in a biological bunker,” she said. “He gets tested all of the time and yet the people attending this rally are not. They’re not getting daily testing. They don’t know if the person next to them without a mask has COVID-19. It is unacceptable and it’s dangerous.”

Facebook said Thursday it took down accounts running a deceptive campaign out of Romania pretending to be Americans supporting US President Donald Trump ahead of the coming election.

The leading online social network removed 35 Facebook accounts, three pages, and 88 Instagram accounts as part of an ongoing fight against "coordinated inauthentic behavior," according to security policy head Nathaniel Gleicher.

"The people behind this network used fake accounts to pose as Americans, amplify and comment on their own content, and manage pages including some posing as President Trump fan pages," Gleicher said.

Brace yourself for months of lawlessness — ‘Election Night’ likely will not end until 2021

There’s nothing wrong with treating American politics like a sport as long as everyone involved in the competition is playing the same sport by the same rules. There’s nothing wrong as long as both sides agree the rules are legitimate, both commit to obeying them and both accept the consequences when they break them.

But there is a problem with treating American politics like a sport when one side is playing soccer and the other is playing football while neither can agree to the rules, because one side won’t commit to obeying them. There is something wrong when one side not only refuses to accept the consequences of rule-breaking but sets out to undermine the idea of rules altogether. In that case, treating politics like a sport, as the Washington press corps habitually does, isn’t helpful. It’s harmful. Even dangerous.

‘Deranged’ Trump pummeled for lying that ‘practicing Catholic’ Joe Biden will ‘hurt God’

Published

President Donald Trump used a supposedly non-political event Thursday afternoon to attack his Democratic opponent with a lie, saying former Vice President Joe Biden will "hurt God" if elected.

In the strange pronouncement on the tarmac in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump falsely claimed that Biden will "take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy."
