The United States hit our biggest spike in the COVID-19 pandemic with over 83,757 new cases. But President Donald Trump says the coronavirus is “going away.”

Speaking to Wisconsin on Saturday, Trump promised the crowd, “it’s going away. It’s rounding the turn.” If the country is turning a corner, it’s one that goes off a cliff, noted progressive Keith Olbermann this week.

Trump spent a portion of his speech speculating that Democrats are making up the COVID-19 outbreak and that the day after Election Day, governors will reopen everything. He attacked Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and North Carolina, saying that they’re all having spikes because of Democrats.

Texas, however, is experiencing such a huge increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations, the Republican governor was forced to beg a military hospital if they could use the beds there to treat patients.

“The medical personnel and supplies we are deploying to El Paso build upon the resources the state previously sent to the community and will provide much-needed support to area hospitals and first responders,” Abbott said in a statement. “The State of Texas will continue to work with local officials to protect public health and help the El Paso community mitigate the spread of COVID-19.”

West Virginia just reached a new record for hospitalizations there as did Iowa. Both states are also run by Republican governors.

In fact, things are so bad in Iowa, yet Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA) won’t demand a mask mandate. Instead, she appeared at an indoor fundraiser for the Republican Party, where no one was social distancing, and only a small few were wearing masks. Events in Iowa are supposed to be limited to 25 people.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci on Tuesday suggested that President Donald Trump is suffering mental problems after losing the 2020 election.

"Trump is really losing it, psychologically," Scaramucci wrote on Twitter. "His followers don’t get that being a 'loser' is just about as bad as actual death to him."

"He is now a 'loser' in his daddy’s eyes," he added. "All he can do is act out. I wonder how it will end."

Rick Wilson and George Conway hilariously ridicule the GOP’s attempt to save Georgia’s Senate seats as Trump implodes

Published

Conservative attorney George Conway -- who is married to former Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway -- made an appearance on GOP consultant Rick Wilson's "The New Abnormal" podcast on Tuesday, where the two Lincoln Project founders wondered whether the president really wants the Republican Party to hang onto the two Georgia Senate seats headed for a run-off in January after he went down to defeat in the state.

The trio started off the Daily Beast podcast with a hilarious dramatic reading of the Washington Post's bombshell report about the president's inability to comprehend how he lost the election, with Conway laughing at the mention of Trump's "fragile mental state."

‘Checkmate’: Legal experts agree remaining Trump election challenges won’t ‘amount to anything’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has exhausted nearly all of his options for overturning his election loss to Joe Biden, legal experts agree.

Trump continues flinging lies about voter fraud from his Twitter account, and only a few highly improbable options remain before Biden is inaugurated next month, reported Bloomberg.

“It’s checkmate in terms of the various chess moves on the board, but they could try go for other moves anyway,” said Edward Foley, director of an election-law program at Ohio State University. “Normally when you see that it’s going to be checkmate, you sort of concede.”
