A CNN discussion on Donald Trump’s continuing obsession with mail-in voting led one contributor to claim that he is sending signals that he knows he’s going to lose and he is setting the stage for multiple attempts to set aside or contest the election results.
Then he told the president to “grow up.”
After “New Day” host Victor Blackwell shared clips of the president claiming the election results wouldn’t be reliable and we “might never know” who actually won the election, Blackwell set the stage for CNN analyst Errol Louis.
“So Errol, anything short of a clear win for the president — and right now there’s no poll that suggests that’s in the cards — how confident are you, or is that what you’re expecting we’ll see from the Trump campaign, piles of litigation?” the host asked.
“Well, I don’t know about litigation so much, they’ve already started by the way they have begun litigation trying to halt or impede or distort the implementation of mail-in ballots but we’ll see the president try to throw shade, no actual facts, on the election in part because he’s behind,” Louis replied. “He’s really laying the groundwork for a possible defeat substantively speaking with mail-in and early voting and the ways we expand people to have their voices heard, it does take about a month leading up to and following election day to get the proper count.”
“We’ll have early voting that starts weeks before November 3rd, we’ll have absentee ballots for servicemen overseas for example, takes a while to get here. that won’t begin to be counted until after November 3rd,” he explained. “Then you have to total it up, so the president needs to grow up. Those who care about having every vote counted should be prepared for what’s going to be about a 30-day process before we know for sure what all of the ballots are telling us about the outcome.”
Lincoln Project whacks the president: ‘We end COVID when we end Trump’s presidency’
President Donald Trump on Thursday held a campaign rally in Wisconsin with supporters "packed in like sardines."
At the rally, Trump ridiculed former Vice President Joe Biden for social distancing at campaign appearances with America's death toll over 200,000. Also on Thursday, Biden held a town hall meeting on CNN where he spoke in-depth about the challenges of a coronavirus vaccine.

Former Trump officials are in open revolt against the president like we’ve never seen
Waves of former officials working for President Donald Trump have consistently turned on him and denounced his conduct throughout his first term in the Oval Office, a trend that only seems to be accelerating as the November election approaches.
Olivia Troye, a former aide to Vice President Mike Pence who worked on the coronavirus task force, was the latest to condemn the president in searing terms on Thursday. In an ad for Republican Voters Against Trump, she described the president as callous to the deaths of Americans and only interested in his re-election.
