Writing for The Bulwark this Tuesday, White House reporter Brian Karem tells the story of a hunting trip he went on with his uncle as a young man. As they walked through the woods, they came across a raccoon caught in barbed wire that was trying to gnaw its leg off to free itself. It’s an image that now reminds him of Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

“Donald Trump has little original programming left,” Karem writes. “He’s playing his ‘Best Of’ reruns. The base is buying, but the base is dwindling and the president is floundering in a cesspool of tautologies and twisted, self-negating sentences.”

Trashing his top infectious disease expert, refusing to outwardly disavow the QAnon conspiracy cult — all typically oxymoronic Trumpisms that “would make even Yogi Berra cringe.”

According to Karem, the closer we get to the election, the more divorced from reality Trump becomes, and the GOP is still refusing to hold him accountable.

“Those in this country who are stunned by this are also numb from the disinformation and the inability of what we thought were decent human beings to separate themselves from the lunacy of Donald Trump.”

According to CNN's Jim Sciutto, Trump is "upset" that the vaccine hasn't been released to the public yet because he doesn't understand the complexity of the massive public health project and why the FDA hasn't approved the vaccine's release.

"This is not the first time we've been concerned about the president interfering, perhaps with an eye towards politics, to the scientific questions about vaccine approval. What do we know?" Sciutto asked.

C-SPAN caller claims vaccine companies are trying to implant him with ‘tracking device’

Published

A C-SPAN caller from North Carolina claimed on Tuesday that pharmaceutical companies are plotting to include a tracking device in COVID-19 vaccines.

"I'm 71 years old, basically in pretty good health," a caller named Mark told C-SPAN's Washington Journal. "I don't really have any problem taking the vaccine except that I'm hearing of the possibility of them including a barcoded tracking device that will be a part of the vaccination and they say the reason for that, if it's true, would be to better get effective results with respect to the virus and the vaccination."

"Where are you reading this report?" the C-SPAN host interrupted.
