On Monday, when asked about mail-in voting by OANN at his coronavirus briefing, President Donald Trump claimed we might have to “re-run” some of the New York congressional races, and proceeded to tell a litany of meritless lies about the supposed problems of mail-in ballots.

“You can have double-voting … they have no clue what’s going on, they’ve lost ballots, there’s fraudulent ballots,” said Trump.

He once again said “absentee ballots are great … universal mail-in ballots are the problem.” He added, baselessly, “you can have two ballots, you can harvest ballots, it’s harvesting,” and complained that you might have to “wait seven days” to know who won the election and it’s “messed up.” And he said he would be suing the state of Nevada to stop an expansion of mail-in voting.

A fight over President Donald Trump's nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the last thing endangered Republican candidates need in the waning day of the election campaign, according to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough.

The nomination fight will energize the base for each party, but the "Morning Joe" host said conservative principles just aren't as politically popular as Republicans think.

"I've got news for the Trump campaign," Scarborough said. "Those people stayed with you through Charlottesville, those people stayed through your racist comments about S-hole countries run by Black people, those people stayed with you even when you were caging children on the border. Those people stayed with you through your worst offenses, your most inhumane comments. You telling people that they had great genes, you getting crowds to laugh because a man got shot and knocked to the ground. Those people are with you."

Aprominent psychiatrist who spent years studying Nazi Germany has called for mental health professionals to speak out about President Trump's "falsification of reality" ahead of the election, warning that his attacks on the truth echo those of the Nazis.

Dr. Robert Jay Lifton, distinguished professor emeritus at John Jay College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and a leading psychohistorian who has written extensively about doctors who aided Nazi war crimes, has long called for mental health experts to defy warnings from the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and speak out about Trump's mental health. Lifton recently published a book entitled "Losing Reality: On Cults, Cultism, and the Mindset of Political and Religious Zealotry" and was one of the 27 mental health experts featured in "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump," the bestseller edited by Yale psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee in which mental health professionals assessed the president.
