NEWS:

ER residents want Americans to stop calling them heroes and start calling Congress: 'It'd be nicer to see something more tangible'. "They're clapping for us every day, and that's cute and all, but if you really do look at us as heroes, do us a favor and write to your congressman and say, 'Why don't you forgive their loans?'" says an ER resident in Chicago.

British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I've Read. He has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace. He is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully. That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless - and he kicks them when they are down. More here.

Michigan Gov Gretchen Whitmer is target of numerous threats made on Facebook. Members from four private Facebook groups have promoted acts of violence against Whitmer and the defiance of her state-wide social-distancing orders. Group members called for assassination of Whitmer ahead of Thursday's rally. Article here.

Our USPS has requested Emergency Relief funding from President Donald J. Trump and his Administration, yet all he's done is call it a "joke" and appoint one of his major campaign donors to be the next postmaster general. Join Brenda Lawrence to Demand Emergency Relief Funding for USPS now! .

"Demagogue for President: The Rhetorical Genius of Donald Trump. A book by Jennifer Mercieca states that a demagogue is an unaccountable leader and Donald Trump is a genius, unfortunately, at using rhetoric to prevent himself from being held accountable. She calls him a dangerous demagogue because he uses weaponized communication strategies which deny consent and provoke outrage. Video interview here. Website here.

Justin Amash Wants to Destroy the System that Created Trump. "The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions. The parties value winning for its own sake, and at whatever cost. Both parties when it comes to the major issues follow the same line. With the coronavirus relief packages basically, they had the system in mind where you'd have the Treasury secretary and the Federal Reserve handing out cash to the biggest corporations and taking care of the people who are well-connected and you'd have a more convoluted system for everyone else".

In yesterday's press conference tRUMP exposed his total corruption for the world to see. He said he thinks there should be NO, repeat NO, inspectors general. The function of IGs is to keep the government honest. In other words, tRUMP admits he wants a corrupt government. More from Richard here

Biden should be attacking trump every day, calling out his BS and dismal response to the pandemic. Why he's taking crap and not firing back is beyond me. Jeffrey

This week tRUMP ranted that Obama and Biden have committed the worst crimes in U.S. political history. They should be thrown in prison for fifty years. No response is necessary to this lunacy. Among other conditions, tRUMP suffers from a personality disorder known as neurotic projection. Obama's presidency was recognized as among the least corrupt presidencies in history. tRUMP's presidency is probably the most corrupt. So, because of his mental illness tRUMP projects his own corruption on Obama. More from Richard here.

Trump had a news conference in the Rose Garden this week to celebrate the testing he is so proud of. Signs all over touting how great a job he has done. A huge increase. We have gone from virtually none in March to a total of ten million so far in the entire country. This WEEKEND the Chinese will test eleven million in the city of Wuhan alone. Oops. Darn, there goes our record. I guess the president will just have to try a little harder. Kind of reminiscent of Bush declaring victory on the aircraft carrier. Now, today, he is saying he doesn't understand why we do these tests. After all, the more tests we do the more cases we have. Duh. Scott
