This farging bozo. Did you hear about his new Operation Warp Speed? Well it's going to distribute over 300M doses of vaccine throughout the country. Trump claims this vaccine will be available at the end of 2020. Most experts expect the vaccine a year later.

Then there's the testing that was going to be available at CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aids and Walmart's across the country. Remember that? The virus was going to disappear, like a miracle! Remember that? Now there's 15 minute testing that gives us correct results, half the time! Awesome! How many 100's of millions did we pay for that? All Whitehouse staff is now required to wear masks. Where's liberate the West Wing?

Trump should rightfully call his efforts Operation Magical Thinking. Opening the country as deaths and new infections expand will NOT lead to economic expansion. It will lead to an expanded outbreak, 100s of thousands dead, complete economic collapse, and the ugliest world you cannot even imagine.

But let's not stop fauning over our beautiful idiot's ego.

State department inspector General Linick was given notice of his dismissal late on Friday night.

The Trump administration has fired the state department’s inspector general who is reported to have been investigating the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, for a potential abuse of office.

The inspector general, Steve Linick, was given notice of his dismissal late on Friday night and is to be replaced by Stephen Akard, a close ally of the vice-president, Mike Pence, from his home state of Indiana. A state department spokesperson said that Akard, who has been running the office for foreign missions, would take over immediately as acting inspector general.

According to a Democratic congressional aide, just before his abrupt dismissal Linick had opened an investigation into allegations that Pompeo had been using a political appointee at the state department to run personal errands for him and his wife, Susan.

Under US law the president is required to give 30 days’ notice before firing an inspector general, to allow Congress to investigate the reasons for dismissal. In recent months Congress has not used that month-long notice period to prevent the termination of other watchdog officials fired by the president.

In a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Trump said: “It is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General. That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

Linick is the latest in a string of officials in watchdog roles fired by the president in recent months, turning on its head the tradition that such jobs are filled with non-partisan figures. Trump has demanded personal loyalty from officials working in the administration, especially those in an oversight role.

“This firing is the outrageous act of a president trying to protect one of his most loyal supporters, the secretary of state, from accountability,” said Eliot Engel, the Democratic chair of the House foreign affairs committee. “I have learned that the Office of the Inspector General had opened an investigation into Secretary Pompeo. Mr Linick’s firing amid such a probe strongly suggests that this is an unlawful act of retaliation.”

Linick is not the first inspector general to be fired late on a Friday night. On 3 April this year Trump dismissed the intelligence community inspector general, Michael Atkinson, who had first deemed credible a whistleblower complaint expressing concern about Trump’s call last summer to his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, which ultimately triggered impeachment proceedings against the president.

On 1 May Trump dismissed the principal deputy inspector general at the department of health and human services, Christi Grimm, who had published a report about shortage of medical supplies at hospitals around the country in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Let’s be clear: all of these moves are punishment for doing the jobs the law authorizes and requires IGs [inspectors general] to do,” Michael Bromwich, former justice department inspector general, said in a tweet.

“This will not end until Congress takes these retaliatory firings seriously. The appointment of a crony of the VP further politicizes jobs that by statute are supposed to be non-partisan. Another important norm defiled.”

In 2019 a state department whistleblower reportedly alleged that Pompeo had used his security detail to run chores like picking up food and picking up the family dog from the grooming salon.

Walter Shaub, former head of the US Office of Government Ethics, said: “The assault on the IG is late-stage corruption, and Trump’s kicking down one of the last bulwarks that stand between us and the burgeoning corruption-driven authoritarianism.” He added some advice to journalists:

“Cover it like you’re a foreign correspondent in a collapsing republic. Because you are.”

Biden’s proliferating internet ads hit two themes over and over: the pandemic and jobs, jobs and the pandemic. Those themes are easy to understand. They carry the power of truth. Above all, they are about the viewer: You are sick or scared, you have lost your job or your business—all because Trump failed to do his job.

Trump’s messages, by contrast, are all about him. You are sick or scared, you have lost your job or your business—but let’s remember who the real victim is. Me. Me and Michael Flynn. But mostly me.

    A real leader does not encourage division among his people. The American people have to say enough.
    If you think the protesters are right, then that is part of the problem. Trump says its up to each state to decide, then encourages bullying behavior if it goes against what his supporters believe.
    If he had made decisions for the entire country, then fine, he should man up and do it. But it's too late for that. Should have been done in February.
    90,000 and counting on deaths. I hope those that lost loved ones are the most vocal leading up to the election.
    Otherwise, your lost loved ones will not rest in peace.

            Yes.
            I would try to help the average American instead of the big corporations.
            Lower the corporate tax is not going to help the average American.
            But the corporations provide the jobs.
            To the urban areas.
            What about the rural people.
            If a corporation can pay its CEO millions, then it doesn't need help with its corporate tax.

            Simple. Listen to the advisers who have been there for years and dealt with similar before. Instead, he fired most of them, closed offices, hired his own BS style buddies and dipsht Jared. He delayed necessary action for weeks and months, telling everyone he had it in control, be over soon, plenty of PPP and protective gear and ventilators, not his responsibility, it goes on....the point is any honest concerned persons of any mental ability could have done better. Christ, an average housewife who keeeps her family and home safe could do a better job than trump, because they are concerned and doing what is necessary to fulfill their this duties.
