President Donald Trump was visibly agitated during a Saturday evening campaign rally outside Reno, Nevada.

Trump bragged about having a huge crowd in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. Neither MSNBC, CNN nor Fox News aired the rally live. In fact, C-SPAN didn’t even air it live.

Trump began by lashing out at Gov. Steve Sisolak (D-NV), but veteran Nevada political reporter Jon Ralson said was “pure fiction” and “delusional.”

Trump also repeatedly complained during the speech about an ad running on his contempt for troops, which had also triggered him on Twitter.

Trump said the ad was so mean that he can now get more “vicious” and immediately began pushing conspiracy theories that Democrats are trying to “rig” the election.

Trump got his supporters to chant “lock her up” during a rant on how his political adversaries should be imprisoned.

And as usual, Trump repeatedly complained about coverage of his administration, falsely labeling reporters “fake news.”

“It’s a rigged election, it’s the only way we’re going to lose,” Trump claimed.

He also complained about not being able to use Air Force One as a backdrop for his campaign rally.

Trump didn’t just attack Joe Biden, but went on rants against multiple candidates who sought the Democratic nomination and said that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would be president within a month of Biden being sworn-in.

The leader of the free world also pondered out-loud whether he should shave his head like MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi.

Here’s some of what people were saying about Trump’s rally:

During his latest rally, President Donald Trump lamented that former Vice President Joe Biden is at 50 percent in the polls.

Speaking to a Wisconsin crowd on Saturday, Trump said that they would joke that Biden was "1 percent Joe," seemingly tying Biden's television ratings to approval ratings.

"He's at 50 percent," said Trump. "And at 50 percent he wins. You explain: Is politics crazy or what?"

The moment came after Trump alleged that the coronavirus was already "going away" and that the day after the election all of the states would reopen.

‘Chaos and confusion’: Election head in solid GOP state bashes Trump for ‘undermining’ their mail-in voting efforts

Published

Donald Trump's attempts to cast doubt on the result of the 2020 presidential election -- which appears to not be going his way -- is causing headaches and grief in Utah where voters who have overwhelmingly voted by mail are now in a panic over whether their votes will be counted.

According to a report from Washington Post, Weber County -- a rock-ribbed Republican district of 260,000 -- began using mail-in voting in 2013 with no complaints. In fact, according to the report, 'more than 99 percent of ballots cast in the [2020] primary were placed in the mail or deposited in a dropbox."

Republicans have more to gain from losing the election — and they know it: Columnist

Published

On Saturday, writing for The Week, Matthew Walther argued that Congressional Republicans' recent behavior shows they have made peace with losing the election — that, indeed, they are looking forward to it, and have mapped out what they will do next as the party out of power.

"Faced with the possibility of losing both the White House and possibly even the Senate in a year in which Democrats are also expected to consolidate control of the House as well, Republicans have resigned themselves to a half decade or so of opposition," wrote Walther. "Many of them are relieved at the thought of not even having to pretend to govern as members of a minority party — better yet, in the case of those who expect to lose their seats, at the not very remote possibility of a well-remunerated position with a lobbying or consulting firm."
