You no doubt witnessed the furor this week caused by Bob Woodward’s new book “Rage” — another in his series of exposés on President Trump — which revealed the president admitted early on that he knew Covid-19 was easily transmitted through the air but didn’t want to start a panic by saying that publicly.
But you might have missed The New York Times report that Trump and the Republican National Committee squandered their $200 million cash advantage over Vice President Joe Biden, spent $800 million of the $1.1 billion raised and now face the possibility of a “cash crunch.”
The revelation added to Trump’s embarrassingly dubious financial track record, as pointed out by the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank:
Seems President Trump has run his reelection campaign into financial distress, a status that will not surprise those familiar with the Trump Taj Mahal, the Trump Castle, the Trump Plaza Atlantic City, the Trump Plaza New York, Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, Trump Entertainment Resorts, the Trump Tower Tampa, the Trump Shuttle, Trump: The Game, Trump magazine, Trump Mortgage, Trump Steaks, Trump mattresses, Trump pillows, Trump perfume, Trump shirts, Trump underwear, Trump shoes, Trump eyeglasses, Trump University, Trump Vodka, the Trump Foundation and the U.S. Treasury.
We have to get this guy out of the White House before he bankrupts us all — financially and morally. Take that to the bank.
Just 53 days until the election, folks.
Preston Love, longtime community leader and political advocate, announced Thursday that he will be the Democratic write-in candidate for U.S. Senate in the Nov. 3 election. Love is endorsed by the Nebraska Democratic Party.
Voters can simply write Love on the write-in line and fill in the oval next to his name under the U.S. Senate portion of their ballot.
“2020 has been a unique year. Many of our young people can’t go to school, many of our adults are not working, evictions are at an all-time high, disparities for people of color have finally become recognized, and our elderly are chronically at risk,” Love said.
“The 2020 election is also unique. We have a president who is telling us to illegally vote twice, who lies, is racist, misogynistic and divisive. Our Nebraska U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, while sometimes verbally disagreeing with the president, continues to vote with him time after time and has yet to stand up to Trump for our Gold Star and Blue Star families or for the disadvantaged and minorities so hurt by COVID,” Love said. I stand before you ready to serve. Love will combat hate. Love will begin to heal the hurt all across our state. All you need to do is write Love on your ballot.”
Because of a production glitch, the Biden Team was unable to deliver us enough yard signs this week, so we had to postpone some of our planned Biden Yard Sign Drive-Thru parties this weekend. We have enough signs on hand to do just three parties Saturday:
–Saturday in Omaha: NSEA office, 4202 S 57th St, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. CT
–Saturday in Lincoln: NDP office, 3701 O. St., 3 to 5 p.m. CT. NOTE: This event was rescheduled to 3 p.m. due to the funeral of slain Lincoln police officer Mario Herrera.
