Well that was a conversation stopper if ever I saw one. Perhaps it may be best to start a new thread with a different title.

Just the wrong time of Day is my observation, most Americans would be asleep and only just getting up on the East coast now. And the Antipodeans will be heading to bed.

Not just America. I should have bookmarked it but I forgot to do so. There is a superb interview on YouTube* from a black police officer from Portland, Oregon. The thing that grabbed me the most was his statement where he was talking to a young black girl when a young white girl walked up to the pair of them and chastised the young black girl for talking to the officer. When he asked her why she did it, he was told, I was told to do it.

Trump is only inciting attitudes like this & if he is re-elected both America & the RotW has genuine cause for concern.
* look it up.
Edited for spelling error.
Found it. Not quite the one I watched as it was approx. 7 minutes long. This one is 27 minutes & the statement I mentioned is approx. 4 minutes in.

And another example of the traffic in the opposite direction. We are hearing much talk of "The Great Barrington Declaration", apparently a scientific proposal by over 4,000 medical and public health practitioners - advocating an end to universal lockdown by allowing herd immunity to flourish in its place.

The Independent Newspaper wrote:
Coronavirus: ‘Dr Person Fakename’ and ‘Harold Shipman’ signatures on scientists’ letter calling on government to embrace herd immunity
(Harold Shipman was a genuine British doctor, but also a convicted serial killer)
As Ian Harvey, Emeritus professor of public health, University of East Anglia, points out in a letter to today's Guardian, "it is less wise for this to be done under the auspices of such an organisation as the American Institute for Economic Research, and for the declaration’s originators to be photographed smiling in its well-manicured grounds. This is an organisation which, on its website, complains that “the ideologies of socialism and centralisation are alive and well today”, and argues for “limited government and sound money”. I think we all know where they stand on the political spectrum."

Mr Trump told Fox News that he was feeling "really, really strong" and was no longer on medication, having had his "final doses of just about everything".
The world's No 1 dopehead feels better

So he decides that Covid-19 won't stop him.
The president says he is planning to attend a "big rally" in Florida on Monday.

What a Super-Spreader Trumped up game and everyone else around 'takes their chances'?...


Covid: The latest on Trump's health in six graphics

... On 26 September, Mr Trump announced his Supreme Court pick ... in front of a crowd of about 200 people in the White House Rose Garden.

The president and many of the people in his circle who attended the event, have since tested positive, although we don't know for sure where they caught the virus...

... Dr Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, called it a "superspreader event", drawing attention to the fact that people were crowded together and not wearing masks...

... A growing group of senior government officials and White House aides have also tested positive for the virus, including First Lady Melania Trump, aide Hope Hicks and a number of Republican senators. His speechwriter Stephen Miller is the latest aide to test positive - confirming his result on Tuesday...

... Large gatherings, like the one held in the White House Rose Garden, are banned in the US capital due to the virus, but federal property like the White House is exempt...

I've read elsewhere that some of those victims are seriously ill in hospital...

Amongst the blizzard of Trump tweets and delirium:

Any mention of Melania or of any of his infected aides?...

Look at the GOP candidate for sheriff.

v2.0 will be going off again as he and the GOP lose another court case.

Federal judge in Pennsylvania denies Trump campaign voting policy challenges in major ruling.

A federal judge in Pennsylvania has denied the Trump campaign and Republican Party's bid to make ballot dropboxes in Pennsylvania unconstitutional, in a resounding defeat for the campaign's challenges to voting policy in a key battleground state.
Judge Nicholas Ranjan of the Western District of Pennsylvania court on Saturday also refused to throw out policies in Pennsylvania allowing signatures on mail-in ballots to not strictly match the voters' signature on file with the state and requiring poll workers to live in the county where they will work on Election Day.
He also rejected Republicans' fears of voter fraud, saying it's possible but not proven likely.

"While Plaintiffs may not need to prove actual voter fraud, they must at least prove that such fraud is 'certainly impending.' They haven't met that burden. At most, they have pieced together a sequence of uncertain assumptions," Ranjan wrote in the 138-page opinion.

Meanwhile, ethics experts say that hosting political events at the White House, as well as being against long-standing convention in the US, could violate federal law.

Why doesn't that surprise?

Much more of a risk to America should he remain in the White House.

I've always felt Trump was just a figurehead. The more dangerous question is: Who is propping him up?

... The phrase loose canon comes to mind.

More apt are the various phrases around the rather unfortunate device called a petard...

A Petard doesn't need to be hoisted very high to do its job - and being hoisted by one's own Petard most definitely exhibits a high degree of lack of forethought and planning....
(I think if one hoisted one's Petard too high it might be more appropriate to say "buried by one's own Petard".)

Well I just watched an interview on ABC This Week with Eric Trump and I'm now wondering if lying and stupidity just naturally runs in the family.
