With 4 days to go before American’s head to the polls, President Tween-Tweeter–tweeted 26 times and retweeted 13 times so far. 10 of his 26 tweets were sent between 2:13 a.m. and 2:57 a.m. D.C., time.
2:13 a.m. D.C., time.
1. Shares a Breitbart article.
The rally was initially planned at the Rochester airport, but Ellison’s office demanded a “COVID preparedness plan” from officials from the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, and the Rochester airport, as well as the Republican National Committee to ensure the event was safe.
The event was then moved to Dodge Center, prompting Ellison’s office to ask the Trump campaign and the owner of the building McNeilus Steel for their “COVID Preparedness Plan.” That prompted the Trump campaign to move the event again, back to the airport.
“Thanks to the free speech-stifling dictates of Gov. Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison, only the first 250 people will be admitted,” the campaign said in a statement sent late Thursday night.Breitbart. 10/29/2020.
“Without question, Minnesota Democrats had hoped that the President would simply cancel the event, but he will not allow partisan politicians to deprive people of their First Amendment rights to gather peacefully to hear directly from the President of the United States,” the statement continued.
Chief Political reporter with KSTP-TV reported via Twitter:
If I’m reading this all correctly, it appears in order to hold the event in Minnesota the event holders must present a plan to the state regarding the coronavirus and Team Trump plus the planners failed to provide the plan.
2:17 a.m. D.C., time.
2. Shares another Breitbart article.
From the article:
2:22 a.m. D.C., time.
3. Sticks with sharing a Breitbart article.
The article is an opinion piece that praises President Lamest Duck Ever’s first term in office. Pointing in list form to the 11 things the writer believes Lamest Duck has accomplished.
2:31 a.m. D.C., time.
4. Showing Breitbart more love.
This is the tweet from sports reporter Darren Rovell that sparked the need to write an article about it.
2:32 a.m. D.C, time.
5. Tells us he’s way ahead in…
2012 Romney v. Obama.
2016 Trump v. Clinton.
2020 Trump v. Biden.
2:32 a.m. D.C., time. (seconds after tweet number 5).
6. Tell us to watch the…
2:34 a.m. D.C., time.
7. All caps his 2016 slogan.
It’s delusional to recycle this campaign slogan given that he’s been president since January 2017. Apparently, he wants another four years to accomplish what he couldn’t with the first four.
2:37 a.m. D.C., time.
8. Shares a misspelled hashtag.
2:40 a.m. D.C., time.
9. Tells us that Biden will destroy…
First, legally expanding the court would not destroy it.
Second, in total fairness, we have zero idea what a expanded court would look like, how it would impact decisions.
Third, IMO, and this is all just my opinion, most of the time, like 99.9 percent of the time, a Justice rules as a Justice sees fit and doesn’t do the bidding of a president or an admin or even a political party, they simply review cases, and rule as they believe the founders and/or laws intended.
2:57 a.m. D.C., time.
10. Signals that the 2020 President election will be decided by the Supreme Court…I think.
Anatomy of the tweet; First, I believe based on “the 4 Justices plus 1,” he is referring to Chief Justice Roberts, Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Justice Kavanaugh is the plus one.
Second, I do think, he’s telling those Justices or threatening them more like, that if they decided Biden is the legit President, they will lose their power…
Third, in fairness, this tweet is dumb, unfitting of the Presidency of the United States, and makes the billionth-trillionth example of how come Trump is wholly unfit for office.
Fourth, he truly thinks the Supreme Court will decided the 2020 election much as they did the Bush/Gore election of 2000.
In short, he is telling the American voter regardless of their choice at the ballot box, he will attempt to challenge it all the way to the Supreme Court.
There you have the 10 insane babble of President Babbler at 2 a.m. D.C., time.
8:15 a.m. D.C., time.
11. Tells us it’s testing causing more coronavirus “Cases”, explains that Deaths are “WAY DOWN”, and that our hospitals have great “additional capacity.”
More Testing equals more Cases.
Coronavirus Testing Czar Admiral Brett Giroir told the Today Show, on Wednesday told the Today show that cases are going up, hospitalization are too, and that’s not all because of more testing. He did add that we are better off now that in July, but all the data shows the cases are going up.
Deaths WAY DOWN.
Hospitals have great additional capacity!

12. More on the coronavirus.
On Thursday the New York Times reported that; Researchers at NYU Langone Health who zeroed in on this question, analyzing the outcomes of more than 5,000 patients hospitalized at the system’s three hospitals from March through August, concluded the improvement was real, not just a function of changing demographics. Even when they controlled for differences in the patients’ age, sex, race, underlying health problems and severity of Covid symptoms — like blood oxygen levels at admission — they found that death rates had dropped significantly, to 7.6 percent in August, down from 25.6 percent in March.
Dr. Leora Horwitz, director of NYU Langone’s Center for Healthcare Innovation & Delivery Science and senior author of the paper in Journal of Hospital Medicine is quoted as saying; This is still a high death rate, much higher than we see for flu or other respiratory diseases. I don’t want to pretend this is benign. But it definitely is something that has given me hope.
8:54 a.m. D.C., time.
ABC channel 13 news reported on Tuesday that DeShawn Bojgere from Kentucky was charged with willful obstruction of the “passage of mail after more than 100 absentee ballots and other mail was found in a construction dumpster.”
30-year-old DeShawn Bojgere of Louisville, Ky. was charged with the delay or destruction of mail, which is a federal crime.ABC 13 News. 10/27/2020.
Bojgere admitted to special agents with the U.S. Postal Service that he was responsible for discarding the mail in the construction dumpster.
He is no longer employed by the postal service.
According to the complaint 111 general election absentee ballots from Jefferson County were found in the discarded mail.
The complaint says the mail found in the dumpster included approximately 111 general election absentee ballots from the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office being mailed to voters to be filled out.ABC 13 News. 10/27/2020.
The dumped mail also included approximately 69 mixed class pieces of flat rate mail, 320 second-class pieces of mail, and two national election campaign flyers from a political party in Florida.

14. All caps at us…
The article published in the New York Times on October 27th, 2020. According to Casselman “it doesn’t make sense to think about Thursday’s report in isolation. The third quarter’s record-setting growth is effectively an echo of the second quarter’s equally unprecedented contraction, when business shutdowns and stay-at-home orders led gross domestic product to fall by 9 percent. Strong growth was inevitable as the economy began to reopen.”
The economy is still in a hole.
If G.D.P. fell by 9 percent in the second quarter, and rose by about 7 percent in the third quarter, it might sound as if the economy is almost back to where it started.
It isn’t. The big drop in output in the second quarter means that third-quarter growth is being measured against a smaller base. A simple illustration of the same phenomenon: If you have $100 and lose half, you have $50. If you then manage to increase your money by half, that will bring your holdings to $75, not all the way back to $100.
To really evaluate the recovery, it makes sense to focus less on quarter-to-quarter changes and instead look at how the economy compares to the fourth quarter of last year, before the pandemic began. If economists’ forecasts are correct, G.D.P. will be 3 to 4 percent lower in the third quarter than at the end of last year. By comparison, G.D.P. shrank 4 percent over the entire year and a half of the Great Recession a decade ago.
In other words: Even after the record-setting rebound in the third quarter, the economy is still in a hole as large as the worst point of many past recessions.New York Times. 10/27/2020.

17. Tell us he wouldn’t take an endorsement from a RINO.
On October 26th, 2020 President Babbler babbled on October 26th, 2020, to rally goers that China’s leader, Russia’s leader and North Korea’s leader, and about 40 other leaders don’t want to deal with “Sleepy Joe,” one of them he says said, “we don’t want to deal with someone who sleeps all the time.”
Trump, who has repeatedly said that foreign leaders want Biden to win because Trump is so hard on them, now makes stuff up and claims that a foreign leader told him they want Trump to win because "we don't want to deal with someone who sleeps all the time." pic.twitter.com/4S8neuLIoj— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) October 26, 2020
But, yeah, President who retweets random Twitter Accounts that say nice things about him wouldn’t take a RINO’s endorsement.
Near as I can find, former Governor of Michigan Rick Snyder endorsed Biden a month ago. Why it’s news right now. I have no idea.

18. Bashes the Supreme Court.
The NPR Politics tweet is from October 28th, 2020.
According to NPR on Wednesday, “The U.S. Supreme Court has refused, for a second time, a Republican Party effort to block a three-day extension for receiving absentee ballots in Pennsylvania. That means that at least until after the election, the court will not intervene in the way the state conducts its vote count. The court in a second case from North Carolina, also refused late Wednesday to block a similar extension of time to count votes, an extension put into place by the state election board.”

19. Taxer payer paid campaign propaganda.
Twitter Fucktwat: A few issues that I’m always talking about is rebuilding the military. I’ve done that-$2.5 trillion dollars. But I always mention the Second Amendment because the Second Amendment, they want to obliterate it, our opponents. They want to get rid of guns. They want to take away your freedoms, whether it’s recreational or safety. It’s recreational for some, it’s safety for some, or it’s both. They want to obliterate get rid of your Second Amendment. That will never happen with me, it’s one of the biggest things. I mentioned it very early. Raising taxes I think is terrible [don’t know why since you don’t pay them]. So many different things. They don’t take care of our vets I’m always fighting for our vets. And now what we’ve done is absolutely amazing for our vets. I’m fighting for our military. But they always want to know out your Second Amendment. Look at Virginia [this is dumb], look at some of these states where it’s constantly under siege. With me as your President [he banned bumpstocks without Congress] your Second Amendment will not be tampered with, it will not be touched. Go out and vote. And vote early if you can. But get out and vote. Thank you.

The clip is 2 minutes and 30 seconds long. He is basically previewing his rally lies.

He says in the above clip he believes the Republicans will take back the House, because he’s been great, but the Senate is more complicated.
