“The View” hosts skipped their annual Halloween costume party, since they’re still broadcasting remotely from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, and instead shared their spookiest fears about Election Day.

The panelists agreed the pandemic would complicate voting this year, and they worried President Donald Trump and the Republican Party were trying to rig the election.

“My biggest worry is the continued efforts by the Republican Party, quite frankly, for voter suppression,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “I was on a call last night with Black Voters Matter, started by LaTosha Brown, she’s a fellow at Harvard. There were so many women, Black women, organizing in different states — Florida, Georgia, Texas, Kentucky — and the biggest concern was the continued efforts at voter suppression. People at the polls trying to intimidate voters, people filing lawsuits, trying to quash the vote, and I’m really concerned because this is a global pandemic and you have seniors waiting on line for four, five, six hours, you know, during a global pandemic, and we know that the pandemic, at least in this country, has disproportionately affected Black and brown communities at great health risk to themselves, [and] they are still standing on lines to vote. I’m concerned about their well being and concerned about the fact that their votes may not be registered and may not matter.”

Co-host Ana Navarro admitted she was scared of the late polling showing Joe Biden with a lead.

“What scares me, too, is people relying on the polls,” Navarro said. “I have PTSD from 2016. I remember the polls looked pretty good for Hillary Clinton the week before the elections. You know, she had a bunch of fireworks ready to go Election Night that were never lit, and so I hope people are not relying on the polls and thinking that that means they don’t have to go out and vote, that they don’t have to go stand in line, they don’t have to return their ballot [that] they can vote for whomever they want, a third party or write-in, Mickey Mouse. We’ve learned our lesson after 2016. voting matters. Every vote matters.”

The Associated Press reported Thursday that President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department was barred from entering the building.

The report revealed that Heidi Stirrup, "an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller," was pressuring Justice Department staff to hand over sensitive documents and information about alleged "election fraud" and other issues that are important to Trump.

Attorney General Bill Barr told the AP on Tuesday that there was no widespread election fraud or voter fraud, as Trump has claimed for the past several weeks since losing the 2020 election. Trump alleged that Barr “hasn’t looked very hard."

Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money

Published

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."

Published

on

Republicans are growing increasingly worried that conspiracy theories about mass election fraud may depress voter turnout and could cost them in the upcoming Georgia runoffs, and according to the Washington Post's Greg Sargent, there's a "vile aspect" to this development that's no laughing matter.

"Georgia Republicans don’t mind when Trump lies about the integrity of their elections in a way that they think will help them," he writes. "They only mind when Trump lies about the integrity of their elections in a way that threatens to harm them."
