"As an entertainment journalist, I've had the opportunity to cover Trump for over a decade, and in all my years covering him I've never heard anything negative about the man until he announced he was running for president. Keep in mind, I got paid a lot of money to dig up dirt on celebrities like Trump for a living, so a scandalous story on the famous billionaire could've potentially sold a lot of magazines and would've been a Yuge feather in my cap.

Instead, I found that he doesn't drink alcohol or do drugs. He's a hardworking businessman.

On top of that, he's one of the most generous celebrities in the world, with a heart filled with more gold than his $100 million New York penthouse."

Funny that this stellar entertainment journalist had never spoken to Trump's spokesman, John Miller.

The "stellar" journalist also can't spell.

H-U-G-E, not Yuge.

Of course, we know, and I know as I was one in college, it doesnt take much and the bar is limbo-like low to be a journalist.

Regarding the author,  Liz Crokin:

Liz Crokin Claims Celebrities Are Getting Coronavirus From Tainted ‘Adrenochrome Supply’ 

Right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on YouTube last week in which she declared that the current COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak is really just a cover for the Trump administration to carry out the mass arrests long promised by QAnon, the right-wing conspiracy theory that posits that President Donald Trump has been working diligently to arrest countless prominent political, media, and business leaders for allegedly being part of a global satanic pedophile ring...

...  Crokin doubled down on this predication in a new video that she posted last night in which she  and also speculated that celebrities like Tom Hanks and Idris Elba have contracted the virus by drinking adrenochrome that had been intentionally laced with the virus by “the white hats”—a computer security term used to refer to hackers who use their skills for good. “I also believe that this virus was created by the cabal, specifically Bill Gates,” Crokin said...

Trumpsters sure are funny people when they get desperate.

Oh, ouch!

Hate to tell you this, but the bar is equally low to a nurse.

How do I know?

I've been a journalist, and now I am a nurse!

Sorry your days as a student journalist weren't fulfilling, dude.

May be, if you had made it to the professional level, your opinion would be different.

I understand why Trumpsters are desperate to change the conversation.

Some 100,000 Americans are dead from CVirus, and all their leader can think to do, is play golf.

Not a good look for someone running for president.

Another Black man is killed by police.

And another American city is in turmoil.

The economy, the one thing Trumpsters used to love to brag on, is in the toilet.

So, they throw out conspiracy theories and pretend to be outraged by things they previously never gave a thought to, so long as their 401k was humming.

Desperate to get folks to look away from the failure that is: Donald John Trump.

Yes, Trump's rant was definitely fear-mongering.

My thought was if it's safe to go to Home Depot and other places, it's safe to vote in person.  You do make a good point about the older population,  however.  That may be enough to convince me.

I'm sure you must realize the irony of a Florida resident trying to assure us that the voting process will not be a mess? 😁

You might be interested in this:

"A study of Florida’s past two presidential elections finds that mail ballots were 10 times more likely to be rejected than votes cast at early voting sites or on election day.

The study also found that mail ballots cast by youngest voters, blacks and Hispanics were much more likely to be rejected than mail ballots cast by white voters, and that those voters are less likely to cure problems with their ballots when notified by election supervisors than other voters."

https://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/state-politics/article218654810.html

I'm not sure that going to Home Depot is generally considered "safe", but it's also not a constitutional right to go to Home Depot, and the accessibility of shopping at Home Depot isn't a basic measure of the strength of a democracy, accessibility to voting is however.

Florida's troubles with mail-in voting, which have required the intervention of courts, haven't been helped by the fact that it's secondary to in-person voting, which they don't exactly have a grip just by itself.  Limiting what they need to focus on to one type of voting would seem to be an obvious way of giving Florida the best chance of managing a voting process in a reasonably competent manner.  Since there seems to be general agreement that absentee voting (voting by mail) should always be an option, vote-by-mail-only would seem to be the obvious choice for narrowing it down to one method of voting.

I knew I recognized the author's name from somewhere, It wasn't until Herring's post that I remembered recently reading an article about Q-anon, and that one of their core beliefs has become that JFK jr faked his death and is actually Q, the person who came up with that theory is Liz Crokin, the author of Lucy's article.

Just because someone is a "prominent voice" in Q-anon doesn't mean everything they say is false, so lets' review the author's claims.

1.  Trump is actually an altruistically generous person, as evidenced by donating money to a woman to keep her farm after husband committed suicide.

Trump donated approximately $20,000 to a woman to help her keep her farm, a small portion of the money required, and organized an extravagant press conference to publicize the donation.  The positive PR press he got as a result was well in excess of $200,000 in PR costs, even in 1987 dollars, hardly 'altruistic'.

2.  Trump paid off the mortgage of someone who changed the tire on his limo. 

This is one of the most repeated urban legends of all time.  Best guess is that it started with an Oscar Wilde story, it was then repeated in reference to Henry Ford, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Leon Spinks, Bill Gates, and now Trump.  There is no more evidence to support that this actually happened with Trump than with any of the other cases.

That leaves us with charitable use of his private jets, which is far below the typical charitable use of private jets.  There are numerous charitable organizations that exist for the sole purpose of making use of the jets of rich people for charitable purposes when they aren't using them, and given the amount of time Trump has owned private jets his limited examples of offering it for charitable purposes is concerningly low.

Not only is Trump's chartable giving record surprisingly sparse, he has had a charitable organization, which he apparently used as a way of diverting charitable funds to himself, which is a purely sociopathic way of behaving. 

This isn't hypothetical, Courts have forced him to shutter his 'charitable' organizations because he was embezzling those funds for personal use, including a such necessities as a Tim Tebow signed football and a personal portrait.  

Long story short, he took money people gave to help really unfortunate individuals and illegally used it to feed his ego and personal vanities, he's a ***ing scumbag, it really is just as simple as it appears.

Why do you think Trumpsters are so desperate to change the narrative on their leader?

Reasonable people would never mistake him for a kind of caring person.

The ads he took out, calling for the deaths of FIVE innocent Black is proof enough that he is a POS.

Could this fraudulent push to turn him into Saint Francis have anything to do with the fact that he chose to play golf, as the death number from CVirus hit 100,000 mark?

I think there is also a general assumption that in person voting should always be allowed.  So, if your going to narrow it down to one method to give a state the best chance of managing the voting method competently,  I would go with the method that we've used since the late 1700's. 

Each person shows up, gets a ballot, turns it in, it gets counted.  Not much simpler then that.
