@cat the question is does that get pre-dated to counter decisions already made or only new ones?

My money is on something big like State Secrets or Presidential pardons to make a mess for Biden so he can say "Look, he can't do it"

I wonder what would happen if he did a bulk pardon of EVERY prisoner who had committed a federal crime in one hit.

Donald Trump and his team are salespeople and have mastered the art of slogan's and catch phrases.  No, they won't work on everyone but they don't need to, they only need to work on enough.

@guest2 i agree with you here.  

<Spoiler alert>
I enjoyed the original Pet Sematary growing up and recently as a parent I went to rewatch the remake.  I got about 5 minutes in when a truck drove past the family as they were unpacking and thought "Nope, can't do this" and switched it off.
As a parent I was not able to watch that movie knowing what happens to the kid however prior to being a parent I was able to separate myself from it.

@anonymous Or when women moan about how useless their husband is?

Fairly confident that's not what he meant.

Hearing about animal cruelty is horrible.  It is even worse when you have a beloved pet and imagine them in that situation.  It makes the connection closer.   The phrase "As a pet owner" in no way implies they wouldn't feel horrified at animal cruelty if they did not have a pet.
Hearing about a terrorist attack is terrible.  It can be made even worse if you have friends or loved ones near the place it happened as you can picture them there and make the connection closer.  People saying "I have friends there" in no way implies that you wouldn't be horrified if you hadn't, only that it made the connection to the act feel closer as you can picture your friends in harms way.
Hearing about people being assaulted in a foreign country is shocking and brings on empathy.  The phrase "As a father of daughter's" in no way implies you wouldn't feel these things if you didn't,  You can picture your loved ones in that position and it makes the connection to the horrible act more real.

@rush Shhh, the lasts thing we need is 2020 saying "Hold my beer"

My first reaction was a chuckle, I know not very nice of me but thinking it through I'm realising there is no good in this situation.
Some of the scenario's :
A) Trump only develops mild symptoms and recovers quickly
- People use this to justify that Covid -19 isn't that bad and no worse then the flu making it even harder for the US to get it under control.
B) Trump develops severe symptoms requiring medical care.
- His supporters demand a delay in the election and riot if it doesn't happen. If the election does go ahead they will declare the result invalid and again, riot.
C) Trump dies as a result.
- His supports will treat him like a martyr. General riots out of principal. Demands to delay the election and hold China accountable.
There are no likely winners out of this.

@cat I hope you're right

Honestly if anything Biden lost a big opportunity here. Definitely not a Trump supporter but I have to say Trump came out looking stronger then he should have. 

He should have been called on his BS a lot more than he was. To those that were leaning towards him or already supporters not calling ou the BS will be seen as confirming it

And then he would be blamed for not being front and centre and hiding behind others.

Freedom of speech isn't freedom from consequences yada yada...

He made a poor choice, even if an understandable one, and this is the consequence. I understand he was tired, worn out to the bone and under a shit ton on pressure but it in any other situation would it be acceptable?

I would hope he is shown a bit of leeway in the circumstances and possibly kept away from camera's.

I wish it was used more. I hate sms spam and rarely use FB anymore because of the crappy algorithms but would be more than happy to receive these whenever needed.

I'm curious what you hoped to achieve though?
Raising awareness? People are already aware. People know the forecasts.
What you need is people to support your cause, protesting in the manner you did will not do this and will do more harm than good.

All rubbish like what happened to Ellen does is create bigger divides and damage your cause.

I agree with what she supports but not the way she spoke about it, it was aggressive and full of hyperbole. The pout out her face when she saw Trump highlighted her immaturity.
No one gets their mind changed from being attacked.
Keep fighting the good fight but choose better tactics

No point in both of you being up. My wife did the nights for all 3 of ours and I got up and took over at 4am-5am in the morning to give her a chance to get a few hours or uninterupted sleep. If it was a bad night and my wife needed help before then she woke me up and asked

Possibly he looked overage? You know, the most obvious reason...
