It’s Wednesday.

There are 3 Days Until:

There are 4 Days Until:

There Are:

With 6 days to go before the Presidential Election of 2020, President Covid-Denier has tweeted 7 times and retweeted 2 times, so far.

12:56 a.m. D.C., time.

1. Try’s to show Political rival Democratic Nominee for President Joe Biden as weak, but instead shows that he can walk down-stairs and is competent.

President Twitter took to Twitter on June 13th, 2020, to defend himself saying that the ramp was “long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery.”

7:32 a.m. D.C., time.

2. Confirms that the New York Times does in fact have his taxes.

On Tuesday the New York Times posted an article that explained how President Doesn’t Pay His Bills didn’t pay his bills regarding his Trump Tower in Chicago.

He and his family hoped the Trump International Hotel & Tower would cement their company’s reputation as one of the world’s marquee developers of luxury real estate.

Instead, the skyscraper became another disappointment in a portfolio filled with them. Construction lagged. Condos proved hard to sell. Retail space sat vacant.

Yet for Mr. Trump and his company, the Chicago experience also turned out to be something else: the latest example of his ability to strong-arm major financial institutions and exploit the tax code to cushion the blow of his repeated business failures.

The New York Times. 10/27/2020.

According to his federal income tax records, obtained in September by the New York Times; show for the first time that, since 2010, his lenders have forgiven about $287 million in debt that he failed to repay. The vast majority was related to the Chicago project.

How Mr. Trump found trouble in Chicago, and maneuvered his way out of it, is a case study in doing business the Trump way.

When the project encountered problems, he tried to walk away from his huge debts. For most individuals or businesses, that would have been a recipe for ruin. But tax-return data, other records and interviews show that rather than warring with a notoriously litigious and headline-seeking client, lenders cut Mr. Trump slack — exactly what he seemed to have been counting on.

Big banks and hedge funds gave him years of extra time to repay his debts. Even after Mr. Trump sued his largest lender, accusing it of preying on him, the bank agreed to lend him another $99 million — more than twice as much as was previously known — so that he could pay back what he still owed the bank on the defaulted Chicago loan, records show.
Ultimately, Mr. Trump’s lenders forgave much of what he owed.

The New York Times. 10/27/2020.

He received a loan from Deutsche Bank, so eager to establish business in America, they over looked President Historic Defaults-defaults lending 401 North Wabash Venture the L.L.C., started in regards to the Chicago Trump Tower project, $640 million. Historic Defaults personally guaranteed $40 million of the loan.

He received another $130 million from Fortress Investment Group, a hedge fund and private equity company.

Both loans were signed on February 4th, 2005. In 2008 the start of the finical crisis the loans became due, he received extensions but further requests to delay repayment were denied.

In July of 2010, after everyone sued everyone lawyers for President Defaulter said he and Deutshe Bank reached a settlement, the terms of the settlement were private.

On July 28, 2010, lawyers for Mr. Trump, Deutsche Bank and Fortress notified the court that they had reached a private settlement. The terms weren’t disclosed.

But Mr. Trump’s federal tax returns, as well as loan documents filed in Cook County, Ill., provide clues to what happened: Mr. Trump was let off the hook for about $270 million. It was the type of generous financial break that few American companies or individuals could ever expect to receive, especially without filing for bankruptcy protection.

The New York Times. 10/27/2020.

The Whittled Down Tax Bill:

The I.R.S. requires taxpayers to treat forgiven debts as income when calculating what they owe in federal taxes. The New York attorney general, Letitia James, is investigating whether Mr. Trump followed the law.
The tax records reviewed by The Times show that while Mr. Trump accounted for $287 million of income from his canceled debts, he managed to avoid paying income taxes on nearly all of it.
Mr. Trump reported $40 million of forgiven debt as income in 2010. But losses from his businesses — including $30.8 million in red ink on the Chicago project — meant he had no taxable income that year.

As it turned out, though, losses in other parts of his business wiped out most of his federal tax bill on that income. He paid nothing for 2014; $641,931 for 2015; and, after credits, only $750 a year for 2016 and 2017. It isn’t clear how much he paid for 2018.

The New York Times. 10/27/2020

On September 28th, 2020 the day after the New York Times reported they had tax information on President Won’t Show His Taxes took to Twitter to confirm and deny the first published article regarding his taxes.

On September 27th, 2020, the day the New York Times reported that President Cheap Ass Bitch only paid $750 in federal income taxes, President Cheap Ass Bitch held a campaign rally aka press briefing. Asked about the story he said the story was “fake news and made-up.” He fell back on the old standard lie that he was under audit and couldn’t release his taxes.

3. Thanks a Fox Business show host for praising newly sworn-in Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Payne’s tweet is from October 26th, 2020.

I can’t say if she’s brilliant, I can say she isn’t all that accomplished, given she’s only been on the bench 3 years before she was nominated for a seat vacated with the passing of accomplished Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Barrett is probably caring, patriotic, and like accomplished, it’s unknown if she will be a role model.

I can also say my problem with her, is her inexperience, never tried a case, never argued before the Supreme Court, and was unable to say whether or not a President can delay the election for whatever the reason. The answer is no, the President cannot delay it, only Congress can.

For an analysis of Justice Barrett’s Supreme Court seat @ the News Blender.

8:35 a.m. D.C., time.

4. For the third day in a row, the Uncaring Asshole has said that “Covid, Covid, Covid,” goes away on November 4th, 2020, the day after the Presidential election.

From Tuesday.

Opinion time, aren’t you guys luck!

Out of all the things, and trust me there are tons of things, the Dummy has done badly, wrongly, and just sheer incompetently, but this pandemic, this virus that is a dark cloud over our country, is his biggest failure. It’s the Republicans in office’s biggest failure. People are dying, people are suffering from isolation, people, the American people are hurting badly, and this Jack-ed Up with no fucks to give, is attempting to pretend it away. He’s pissing all over the American people and trying to tell us, it’s raining.

Four souls were lost in Libya, under Obama’s watch, he failed, he lied, they tried to cover it up, we had massive hearings, with Hillary Clinton testifying to her failure for 11 hours, but somehow the lives of 225,084 as of yesterday, don’t matter, are reduced to conspiracy theories, not just by Trump Cult 45’s, but by the sitting U.S. President seeking 4 more years in office, by his party of kiss-ass begging for campaign money Republicans.

It’s my trigger now, I listened to his clip saying that Biden was going to be shot.

And it’s awful, but it barely tips the scale in awfulness. Because right now, American’s are struggling to find hope at the end of the long tunnel that is the coronavirus.

Former President Obama said on Tuesday that President Jealous was Jealous of Covid-19’s media coverage, and in this one instance, Obama isn’t wrong.

10:51 a.m. D.C., time.

5. Proves my point that he’s an Uncaring Dick.

The Washington Post reported on Wednesday morning that following Uncaring Dicks rally were standard in the Nebraska cold after buses were unable to negative the snarled traffic following the rally.

The Trump campaign said it had provided enough buses but traffic on the two-lane road outside the airport was throttled to one direction after the rally, tweeted Aaron Sanderford, a political reporter at the Omaha World-Herald. The campaign didn’t immediately respond to a message from The Post early on Wednesday

The Washington Post. 10/28/2020.

NBC News on Wednesday reported that according to “dispatches from Omaha Police department, recorded by radio communications platform, Broadcastify, at least 30 people including the elderly, an electric wheelchair user and a family with small children were among those requiring medical attention after hours of waiting in the cold at the rally at the Eppley Airfield.”

Air-force One cleared out about 9 p.m. Nebraska time, with the rally goers clearing the area around 12:30 a.m. Nebraska time.

11:20 a.m. D.C., time.

6. Join his Army.

11:22 a.m. D.C., time.

7. Pushes a scandal that isn’t one.

Apparently right-wing Twitter is mad because Tucker Carlson’s interview with Tony Bobulinski didn’t trend on Twitter.

Trump Campaign member and dummy Jenna Ellis.

I found the above tweet on Twitter using the phrase “tucker carlson,” to which Twitter search suggested “tucker carlson bobulinski

As a reminder Twitter trends unless they are bought aka promoted hashtags or whatever, are created by users all talking about the same thing around the same time.

In short, it didn’t trend, because not enough Twitter users cared that Tucker Carlson was interviewing Bobulinski, that includes right-wing Twitter.

Pro-tip if you want views scheduling a bombshell interview during the World Series, is a bad idea.

Update.

Jackass has tweeted 3 more times and retweeted 1 more time, since the article was published.

12:27 p.m. D.C., time.

8. Posts a propaganda ad.

🙄

12:33 p.m. D.C., time.
12:36 p.m. D.C., time.

9. Proves once again that the sitting President seeking four more years, doesn’t understand the Constitution nor what repealing section 230 would mean for his Twitter Obsessed Ass.

10. Cries that the media isn’t covering a story that was sourced by his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and therefore they cannot idepenently confirm the story.

Freedom of the Press =’s the government can’t prevent a media outlet from publishing, Twitter, is now and hopefully continues to be a free social media platform, privately owned.

Think of it this way, if you believe that a Christian baker should not be forced by the government to bake a cake for a gay couple, than you should also believe that Twitter or the internet itself should not be forced by the government to provide content or a platform to disinformation or in fact, maybe they simply don’t like pink dresses? Who knows, but that’s what Freedom means, Twitter is free from the government telling them how to run their private business. Don’t like Twitter, don’t use it.

Repealing section 230 would in fact lead to less freedom on Twitter, not more, as it would make accounts like our sitting President’s a liability. If Twitter is responsible for what we say or post it means they’d have to limit access, specifically accounts like Dummies, because he’d be sued via Twitter, and they couldn’t afford to allow him to post his drivel.

In his interview with 60 Minutes Lesley Stahl explains that they can’t air things, they can’t verify. Meaning, if the outlet, like 60 Minutes which airs on CBS, if they can’t with their own sources verify it means they don’t run with the story.
