Republicans gerrymandered their districts into a shape reminiscent of creatures of the deep. Yet, the line of 300-plus voters on a cold Wisconsin Wednesday wrapped around the block. Most were wearing masks and standing six feet apart. Yet, they were furious, because due to the coronavirus pandemic, they were literally risking their lives to vote. Our founders and our military also risked their lives so that Americans could vote. Here is Trump’s solution.
Republicans can only win any election if they slice the number of Democratic voters, and Wisconsin will be crucial in the November presidential election. Still, the president railed against mail-in voting during his “press conferences,” even after a reporter reminded him that he voted by mail in the last. election.
Already, 20 states allow absentee ballot voting with an excuse. Six states and the District of Columbia allow “Permanent Absentee Status.” The states of Oregon, Washington, and Colorado have only voted by mail. So, nation-wide vote-by-mail is possible.
In addition to this very serious problem, Republican legislators stand silent as Trump sneaks firings of inspectors general under the cloak of the pandemic. This includes the one responsible for monitoring the administration’s use of the half-a-trillion-dollar fund Republicans lawmakers are as culpable as POTUS.
‘“The number of New Yorkers admitted to hospitals has dropped.” @ainsleyearhardt @foxandfriends Good news!’
‘Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to state wide mail-in voting. Democrats are clamoring for it. Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesn’t work out well for Republicans.’
‘The last restrictions on movement have been lifted in the central Chinese city where the coronavirus pandemic began. People are going outdoors and by the thousands boarded the first trains and planes leaving Wuhan.’
‘Voicing joy and excitement from behind face masks, tens of thousands of people flee Wuhan after a 76-day travel ban is lifted on the Chinese city where the #coronavirus pandemic first emerged http://u.afp.com/3pqa’
‘Will be immediately sending 100 Ventilators to Colorado at the request of Senator Gardner!’
Twitter world went crazy after Trump’s morning rant. Yes, the number of new admissions went down, but the number of deaths rose. Meaning someone died every few seconds. See what Americans had to say below:
