I hope the third debate gets canceled also. Biden wants it to be a town hall and Trump does not. Bad enough in a regular debate, Trump would be a disaster in the town hall format.

ABC News announced on Thursday that it will hold a town hall with Democratic presidential nominee and former vice president Joe Biden on Thursday, Oct. 15, allowing voters to ask questions to the former vice president less than a month before Election Day.

ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos will moderate the prime-time event in Philadelphia.

Oct. 15 was the designated date for the second presidential debate, which has since been canceled over squabbles about the format and timing of the town hall-style debate.



that’s surprising.


Byedone needs to be propped up a la Raygun. He will win but it has to be decisive.


Nancy propped up Raygun towards the end, Jill will be doing it day one, they should have her hand on the bible at the swearing in as well–so sad that this is the best we can do 🙁


Happy Friday Birdies!




love when he talks/sings about Palestine

One of my granddaughters came into my office to see what I was listening to when he was doing one of his rap songs. I’m going to have them listen to his whole story. It’s moving and painful and brought a tear. But Frank’s so full of positivity and hope that soothes. Both of their presentations are remarkable.

Beautiful. Hope springs eternal. thank you.



There was a surprising moment during Donald Trump’s Fox News interview last night, when Sean Hannity asked the president about his health. When the host specifically inquired about Trump being tested for the coronavirus, the president replied that he’d seen his doctors earlier in the day. Hannity quickly followed up, asking, “Did you test negative?”

If Trump heard the question, he chose to ignore it. In the same interview, the president added, “[T]here’s no reason to test all the time. I didn’t go into it greatly with the doctors.”

Oh. So, the sitting president of the United States was recently hospitalized with a life-threatening virus, but when it comes to the state of his infection, the Republican doesn’t see the need to “go into it greatly” with the team of physicians responsible for his care.

Of course, the mystery isn’t limited to whether Trump is still testing positive. Just as important, if not more so, is when he last tested negative. As the Associated Press reported overnight:

The White House, meanwhile, continued to decline to share when Trump last tested negative for the virus — which would help pinpoint when he was infected. Strategic communications director Alyssa Farah said that information was Trump’s “private medical history.”

In speaking to reporters, Alyssa Farah suggested that she had the information, but wanted to keep it secret. “I can’t reveal that at this time,” she said.

It was part of an extraordinary pattern. On Saturday, Dr. Sean Conley, Trump’s White House physician, refused to say when Trump last tested negative. A day later, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh MeEnany also wouldn’t say. Conley dodged the same question the day after that.

As the week progressed, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows also refused to say when the president’s last negative test was. The same day, White House Deputy Communications Director Brian Morgenstern told reporters, “We’re not asking to go back through a bunch of records and look backwards.” Yesterday, Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, also wouldn’t answer the question.

For those keeping score, that’s six officials who refused to answer — some of them, more than once — this simple question over the course of five days.

The answer matters for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is understanding whom the president may have infected. Did Trump have the coronavirus at last week’s debate? Or at the recent rally in Minnesota? Or at the fundraiser in New Jersey? Or at White House events on Sept. 26 and 27?

As a rule, when members of Team Trump act like they have something to hide, it’s because they have something to hide.
