    Obama knocks 'folks in charge' while discussing COVID-19 in commencement speech
    The commencement remarks Saturday were the latest sign that Obama intends to play an increasingly active role in the upcoming election. He has generally kept a low profile in the years since he left office, even as Trump has disparaged him. Obama has told supporters he would be “spending as much time as necessary and campaigning as hard as I can” for Joe Biden, who served as his vice president and is the presumptive Democratic nominee to run against Trump in November.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Guess the question is?
    Will Obama be able to get Biden
    out of the basement?
    Or join him there?

    Team Biden has a message for the haters: Look at the scoreboard

    ^ link to article
    "team Biden has a message for the haters"



    "While the Biden campaign says the former vice president’s advantage is partly rooted in his name brand, his advisers acknowledge that the biggest factor in the election is Trump, who is more disfavored than favored in polls and who hasn’t been able to increasing his standing during the crisis, in contrast with most governors, who have seen their approval numbers rise."

    Then he might want to start right at home.
    Home basement that is.

    No administration has caused the division within the Country as much as the Obama Administration.
    Joe is still living proof.

    also from article:

    "We are pulling ahead in Florida, in Pennsylvania, in Michigan, in Wisconsin and in Arizona,” Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said of recent battleground polling a state-of-the-race Zoom presentation with reporters. President Donald Trump won all of those states in 2016."

    In a return to his old fighting form last week, President Trump suggested that his electoral rival, Joe Biden, should go to prison for an unspecified offense he labeled the “greatest political crime in the history of our country.”

    In response, Biden did nothing, holding back in silence for hours after Trump’s interview aired Thursday on Fox Business Network, until the presumptive Democratic nominee’s campaign finally sent out a tweet.


    Barack Obama attacks Trump administration's response to coronavirus pandemic
    Although Obama has largely avoided criticizing Trump’s performance in office, in a call leaked last week the former president described the US government’s coronavirus response as, “an absolute chaotic disaster,” and questioned whether the justice department’s decision to drop charges against former national security advisor Michael Flynn could endanger the “rule of law” in the United States.

    The remarks prompted the US Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, to tell the former president to “keep his mouth shut”. The week also saw the emergence of #Obamagate, which one former CIA analyst described as, “a hashtag in search of a scandal”.

    I apologize MMB, but now that I do not have to pay any attention to anything Obama says I don't. The only thing I am interested in hearing from him is his confession of all of the wrongs which he perpetrated upon us and his apology.

    "Mountainmanbob" and other Trump supporters are getting their marching orders courtesy of FOXNEWS because the attacks on Obama and Biden in this and other threads repeat the same criticisms over and over and over again!

    Apparently running a presidential campaign out of one's basement is paying dividends when the opponent in the White House has mastered the art of self-destructing during briefings!

    Yep. Trump is slumping in all those states he must carry to remain as president:
    RealClearPolitics - Election 2020 - General Election: Trump vs. Biden

    I think in retrospect, the turning point will have been when Trump decided throw old people under the bus to rescue his election chances.

    They were one of his strong groups, but now he's lost them to Biden.

    A string of recent polls show troubling signs for Donald Trump with older voters, a group central to his reelection effort that appears to be drifting away from him amid a pandemic that has been especially deadly for the elderly.

    Former vice president Joe Biden, whose support from older voters helped him lead the primaries, appears to be carrying over some of that appeal into the general election. With Mr Trump seeing sagging approval ratings over his handling of the coronavirus crisis, Mr Biden's campaign is attempting to capitalise with a group that has traditionally leaned towards the Republican party.

    In Florida, a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday showed Mr Biden leading Mr Trump by a 10-point margin, 52 to 42, among voters 65 and older - the latest poll showing Mr Trump losing ground with the elderly in key battlegrounds.
    Biden's popularity with older voters could help him beat Trump, polls show

    I think half of this nation has failed miserably.
    people gaslight Trump,when Cuomo ordered covid patients into nursing Homes?Thousands in New Your died !
    How can you blame anyone but Cuomo?
    I do not find the Bromance funny.
    People are hurting, and Christian's are taking the road to destruction.
    We are throwing trillions at a hegelian dialectic conconcted by a political party that cares nothing about Christ by their own accord.
    They are pathological liars with severe narcissistic behavior.
    This is ridiculous.
    What is Trump guilty of?
    Prayer?
    Wanting a better Nation?
    The Media,and Democratic Party are acting like spoiled children.
    we are very close to losing our way of life,that includes freedom of Religon.
    look At San Francisco is this what America wants everywhere to wallow in the streets homeless.
    I tell anyone that one day everyone will answer to Christ our lord.
    I hope they can answer with a clear conscious,because OSAS is still a theological premise not a fact.
    I have just returned from time away from here.
    I suppose reports will fly,but you all need to act like Christian People.
    it is not a joke.

    You think it's O.K. that Trump lied to us and botched the response because Cuomo made a huge mistake? While Trump was telling us that the outbreak was "completely controlled", his people were telling selected congressmen that it was going to be a disaster. (some of them promptly dumped their stocks with that insider information).

    Because Trump was responsible for handling this, and his initial response was to deny everything and do nothing. Tens of thousands of people died as a result.

    U.S. Could Have Saved 36,000 Lives If Social Distancing Started 1 Week Earlier
    The U.S. could have prevented roughly 36,000 deaths from COVID-19 if broad social distancing measures had been put in place just one week earlier in March, according to an analysis from Columbia University.


    Underlining the importance of aggressively responding to the coronavirus, the study found the U.S. could have avoided at least 700,000 fewer infections if actions that began on March 15 had actually started on March 8.

    The U.S. currently has more than 1.5 million confirmed COVID-19 cases, and more than 93,000 people have died from the disease, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

    In the analysis, researchers applied transmission models to data drawn from the pandemic's actual course county by county in the U.S. — the worst-hit nation in the world. The main focus of the study was the period from March 15 to May 3, when U.S. states and counties implemented "measures enforcing social distancing and restricting individual contact."

    And if restrictions had gone into effect in the U.S. two weeks earlier, researchers found, nearly 54,000 people would still be alive and nearly a million COVID-19 cases would have been avoided.
    U.S. Could Have Saved 36,000 Lives If Social Distancing Started 1 Week Earlier: Study

    In this case, botching the COVID-19 epidemic, when his own people were telling him he had to act quickly.

    And Americans know it. He had one real crisis in his time in office and he failed completely.

    Republicans are panicking as they realize that Biden is increasing his lead over Trump, simply by talking to the American people from his home. He's doing better from his basement than Trump was doing by having daily news conferences. In fact, Trump was doing immense damage to himself by his increasingly erratic behavior at those meetings. Which is why he's got a lower profile now; the more the American people see what he's become in the last few months, the more concerned about his mental state the become.

    Trump's handlers probably realize that.
