Michael Caputo went on a bizarre Facebook rant this weekend about an armed insurrection upon the United States. He revealed he was afraid of long shadows on his ceiling and warned that there were members of “the resistance” in the CDC who wanted to see President Donald Trump fail.

After a lot of stories about Caputo’s statement, he removed the post and deleted his Twitter account. But on Wednesday night, he announced that after a conversation with Secretary Alex Azar and Trump, he would be taking a “medical leave of absence” for 60 days to deal with “a lymphatic issue.”

According to a report from the New York Times, the Trump campaign's history of posting highly-edited videos on social media of Biden appearing to fall asleep or forget his words are about to blow up on Trump's team when Biden takes the stage and goes one-on-one with the president.

‘Terrifying’: CNN host panics after realizing Trump can ‘stay in office without actually winning the vote’

Published

CNN host Fareed Zakaria expressed alarm on Sunday over President Donald Trump's ability to "stay in office without actually winning the vote."

"By declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, President Trump has agitated many who fear he will refuse to leave office even if he loses the November election and may even resort to violence," Zakaria said on his CNN program.
