As deaths from coronavirus reach a staggering 170,000 in the official count — and that’s an undercount — the Trump administration has overseen a stunning drop in testing — something Donald Trump has certainly applauded because he would rather test less and see fewer cases showing in the numbers.
Meanwhile, it’s a full-on assault by Trump on mail-in ballots and the election and the U.S. Postal Service, as mailboxes are missing from streets, the Postal Service has told states it can’t say all ballots will be delivered on time this fall, and Trump is refusing to give the Post Service the money it needs to secure our vote — and our packages, prescription drugs, checks and everything else that is vital and has been delayed.
Protesters took took to the home of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a Trump donor and lackey who is determined to help Trump steal the election. The media has been focused on this a lot, but we need to see Democrats step up more strongly. Everyone should be calling their members of Congress.
Was a great week of shows on my SiriusXM program, with so many people energized and ready for this fight as well as excited about the Biden/Harris ticket. We can’t let Trump steal this election. Mobilization can stop it.
As for me, I’m going to a run now, after having whipped up another gazpacho for tonight! I’ll jump into the discussions here throughout the weekend.
