Trump supporters:

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Democrats are building a substantial lead in mail-in ballot requests for November’s presidential election even as their registration advantage shrinks, but questions remain about whether that will be a boon for Joe Biden as he tries to wrest the nation’s largest swing state from President Donald Trump. The Florida secretary of state’s office shows that 2.4 million Democrats have requested mail-in ballots compared with 1.6 million Republicans — a 767,000 request advantage as the coronavirus pandemic makes some voters leery of entering a polling place. It’s also a sharp change from 2016 when requests — and returned mail-in ballots — were evenly split. Trump narrowly won Florida over Hillary Clinton in 2016, and statewide...
    It’s hard to say that Donald Trump ordering white supremacists to “stand by” to attack American cities was the most jaw-dropping moment of a debate where his performance was simply gruesome from beginning to end. Because there was also the section where Trump ripped into trying to defeat racism as un-American, and the point where Trump sneered at Joe Biden’s memories of his dead son. Truthfully, Trump’s ordering the Proud Boys to load up their ammo cases wasn’t even the only time in the evening when Trump refused to denounce violence, or the only point where he seemed to be encouraging it. Over the course of the astounding dumpster fire performance, Trump repeatedly veered into statements about voting by mail that went...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump's bullying, cajoling and constant interruptions in the first 2020 general election debate with former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday night made the whole affair confusing and difficult to follow. And while there will (rightly) be scads of attention paid to Trump's unwillingness to condemn white supremacists and hate groups, there was actually a moment that I found more frightening -- and isn't getting anywhere near the same amount of attention.Here's it is -- in an exchange between debate moderator Chris Wallace and Trump:Wallace: Will you urge your supporters to stay calm during this extended period, not to engage in any civil unrest? And will you pledge tonight that you will not declare victory until the election...

    President Donald Trump refused to urge his supporters to “stay calm” if there is no clear winner of the coming general 2020 on election night. Due to public health concerns from the coronavirus pandemic, mail-in ballots have never been a more popular option than this election, and issue that President Trump has used to preemptively question the legitimacy of a race he is currently behind his rival Joe Biden. Roughly a week ago, Trump raised eyebrows by refusing to agree to a peaceful transfer of power, an issue which was raised by moderator Chris Wallace during Tuesday night’s “shit show” of a debate. “Will you urge your supporters to stay calm during this extended period, not to engage in...
    Robert Reich September 30, 2020 11:30AM (UTC) This originally appeared on Robert Reich's blog. What is America really fighting over in the upcoming election? No particular issue. Not even Democrats versus Republicans. The central fight is over Donald J Trump. Before Trump, most Americans weren't especially passionate about politics. But Trump's MO has been to force people to become passionate about him – to take fierce sides for or against. And he considers himself president only of the former – whom he calls "my people." : Trump came to office with no agenda except to feed his monstrous ego. He has never fueled his base. His base has fueled him. Its adoration sustains him.  So does the antipathy of his detractors....
    How did President Trump’s and Joe Biden’s supporters react to Tuesday night’s debate? We asked two voters to debate the debate in real-time. Rhonda Kundrat is a 47-year-old non-practicing attorney and mother of three in Chesapeake, Va. She supports the president for re-election. Stacy Grossman is a 49-year-old lawyer and mother of one in Westchester, who’s rooting for the ex-veep. Here’s a selection of their online discussion. On the debate over Amy Coney Barrett: Kundrat: How they treated Garland? Can we discuss Kavanaugh?Grossman: Can we discuss Christine Blasey Ford?Kundrat: Yes we can discuss Ford. Every one of her claims were dismissed — still waiting for the evidence. On the Affordable Care Act: Kundrat: I have a pre-existing condition —...
    President Donald Trump at the first presidential debate Tuesday evening declined multiple times to condemn white supremacist movements that have supported his reelection, and he answered a question about encouraging calm in the aftermath of a surely contentious election in November by instead calling on his supporters to "go to into the polls and watch very carefully." "Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down?" moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News posed to Trump midway through the debate.

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeted after Tuesday night’s presidential debate that Trump supporters are “colluding with evil and getting people killed.” “I get why professional conservatives and GOP staffers and lobbyists and donors and Leonard Leo, etc all have their own special pleading and justifications for what they’re doing, but anyone who’s morally sentient understands they’re colluding with evil and getting people killed,” Hayes said on Twitter.

    Getty/Matthew Thatcher Joe Biden said President Trump "doesn't care about" the health of his supporters at his massive campaign rallies, which feature few masks. During the first presidential debate between Joe Biden and President Trump, Biden said that Trump “doesn’t care” about the health of the tens of thousands of supporters that have packed a number of campaign rallies the president has held amid the coronavirus pandemic. Trump falsely claimed that he has only held rallies outdoors, and that scientists have said “the opposite” of CDC Director Robert Redfield, who has said that masks could be an even greater factor in beating the pandemic than a vaccine.Biden Said That Trump’s Packed Rallies Where Supporters Often Don’t Wear Masks...
    CLAIM: President Donald Trump said that his nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett has liberal supporters. VERDICT: TRUE. The first question that moderator Chris Wallace asked in the presidential debate, to both candidates, was whether it was right that President Trump nominated, and the Republican Senate would confirm, Judge Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump argued that he had the constitutional power and obligation to nominate a justice, and pointed out that Barrett — a conservative judge and legal thinker, who clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia — had many liberal supporters. That is true. One noted liberal voice supporting Barrett was Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman,...
    LOS ANGELES – The organizer of a Southern California rally against police brutality and racism was charged with attempted murder Tuesday for driving her car into counterprotesters and running over a woman's head. Tatiana Turner deliberately drove into a crowd of President Donald Trump's supporters with the intent to kill the woman and also seriously injured a man who broke his leg, Orange County prosecutors said. “She positioned her vehicle to be used as a backup weapon and she used that vehicle as a deadly weapon, willing to injure and kill those who stood in her way,” District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement. A defense lawyer said Turner tried unsuccessfully to get help from deputies Saturday...
    President Donald Trump told supporters in an official campaign email he won the first presidential debate – hours before it even started. "I finished debating Joe Biden," the email reads. It goes on to say "This debate will go down in HISTORY. I showed the American People that I will ALWAYS fight to put America First no matter what and that I will NEVER stop working to Make America Great Again." Campaigns typically have these kinds of statements pre-written and ready to send out the minute a debate ends to raise small-dollar donations, and they sometimes get sent too soon. In fact, the Biden campaign made the same mistake last November with an email that went out hours before a debate...
    Symone Sanders, senior adviser to the Joe Biden campaign, slammed President Donald Trump over a new report that he ridiculed his own devoutly religious supporters behind their back — and she called on him to apologize. During an appearance on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, Sanders was asked about an article in the The Atlantic, published on Tuesday, that detailed how Trump broadly dismissed his Christian backers and mocked the evangelical leaders who back him, privately calling them “hustlers.” Host Joy Reid referenced the report and asked if the candidate would try to target them during the first presidential debate later on Tuesday evening. “Does the Biden/Harris campaign view parts of Donald Trump’s base, evangelicals, white working class voters, et cetera, as targets to...
    Loading the player... President Donald Trump is being accused of making unsavory comments about various religious groups from Christians, Mormons, and those of Jewish faith. The Atlantic recently published a piece detailing the president’s alleged true feelings about religion. According to the story, those closest to him say despite photos taken with religious leaders and claiming Presbyterian Christianity, he isn’t religious at all. Trump is known for praising various religious leaders but according to sources, he doesn’t much care for them.

    President Donald Trump relies on the fervent support of Christians, particularly of the Evangelical variety, to push through his agenda and maintain his hold on power. Privately and secretly, however, he mocks those very Christians and holds them in contempt, a group of former aides told The Atlantic. According to an August report in The Conversation, nearly eight in 10 Evangelical Christians in the U.S. voted for Trump in 2016, and his support in that community has ebbed only ever-so-slightly since then. The president, for his part, has returned that support by nominating three conservative justices, all of whom could be considered likely to be a vote cast in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade. Similarly, he’s cultivated an image...
    President Trump’s son Eric affirmed he is not “part of” the LGBT community after appearing to come out in a televised interview Tuesday. A friend of the Trump family told The Post that “he misspoke” when appearing to say he was “part of that community” hours before his father’s first debate with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. It all started when Eric Trump was asked on “Fox & Friends” about a lesbian New Yorker who supports the president. “I’m telling you, I see it every day, the LGBT community, they are incredible and you should see how they’ve come out in full force for my father every single day. I’m part of that community and we love the man and...
    Alex Wong/Getty Images President Donald Trump has privately shared disdain for both religious leaders and the evangelicals who support him, according to a new report. The Atlantic released an article on numerous people tied to Trump who’ve observed the president in the past as he mocked conservative religious leaders and various faith groups. The piece characterizes Trump as someone who looks at right-wing evangelicals as a special interest group to be cozied up to, even as he privately sneers at rituals and displays a lack of piousness to religious doctrine. From the article: To those who have known and worked with Trump closely, the notion that he might have a secret spiritual side is laughable. “I always assumed he was...

Ilhan Omar in Minnesota. “We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements,” the Minneapolis Police Department said in a Monday statement, according to Fox News. “No further information is available at this time on this.” Project Veritas reported on Sunday that the Minnesota Democrat’s supporters were illegally collecting ballots and bragging about it on social media.

    By Michelle Price and Tim Reid WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A report that Donald Trump paid little or no federal income tax in recent years sparked broad outrage on Monday, from rich Democrats to teachers and coffee shop workers taking to social media to claim they had paid more taxes than the U.S. president. The #IPaidMoreTaxesThanDonaldTrump hashtag began trending on Monday, while Democratic rival Joe Biden's election campaign, seizing on the backlash, launched a pin with the words: 'I Paid More In Taxes Than Donald Trump.'

Tatiana Turner, 40, of Long Beach, California, plowed her car through the Yorba Linda crowd at around 3 p.m., leaving two demonstrators with non-life threatening injuries, Orange County police said.

    President Donald Trump was in high spirits by the end of his Jacksonville rally Thursday night, dancing around the stage and drinking in the screams and air-kisses of maskless supporters just a few feet away. Trump’s Florida rally delivered many of the features that have become de rigueur at these events, including a packed and mostly-maskless crowd — with the exception of the supporters standing directly behind Trump in the frame as he riffs on familiar subjects. It also featured Vox’s Aaron Rupar tweeting out a thread of clips featuring those riffs, including one about the practice of calling a “lid” — when reporters are informed that there will be no further news opportunities from a candidate on a...
    Disturbing footage of President Donald Trump’s supporters being confronted with hard facts shows just how damaging the president’s manipulation is for the American public. Although Trump has defended his circulation of inaccurate and manipulated content as humorous, his supporters often believe the things he says regardless of how outlandish his claims may be. CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan traveled to Minnesota ahead of Trump’s recent rally. He spoke with several of the president’s supporters asking them about the posts they see on their Facebook feeds. Most agreed the vast majority of the information they view is based on right-wing media. When asked about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, one of Trump’s supporters ultimately pointed to a doctored clip of him appearing...
    Actress and director Olivia Wilde shared a powerful, instructional message with her followers on Thursday, urging them to use their voice in the general election coming November 3. In the upload, Oliva took a selfie indoors, bathing in the glow of the afternoon light.

The 36-year-old pulled her brunette and honey-highlighted tresses back into what seemed like a casual ponytail, aptly displaying the “VOTE” message on her mask, scrawled across the left side in white. The mask was pulled back around her ears and had another...

    Bemidji, Minnesota (CNN)At a Trump rally in Bemidji, Minnesota, last Friday, grievances against social media platforms Twitter and Facebook were a common refrain. Many of the President's supporters told CNN that they felt the platforms' fact-checking processes were biased against conservative viewpoints. Others discussed social media posts that contained manipulated media as if they were real. "Like when Joe Biden fell asleep during a live interview on television," one supporter recalled, describing a video that went viral only a few weeks prior to the rally. The video — which appears to show Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden sleeping as a TV news anchor repeats, "Wake up!" — was shared on Twitter by White House social media director Dan Scavino.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has held a consistent lead in the polls, but things could still change, veteran D.C. lobbyist Bruce Mehlman said. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic, three upcoming presidential debates and the recent Supreme Court vacancy all add uncertainty to the race, Mehlman outlined in his quarterly report. Biden v. Trump The report noted that while 58% of President Donald Trump supporters surveyed said that they were enthusiastic about him, only 43% of Biden supporters surveyed said the same about the former vice president. However, while only 39% of Trump supporters said that they feared a Biden presidency, 55% of Biden supporters said the same regarding a Trump presidency. It’s clear that “people don’t feel as strongly about...
    Advertising expert and host of MSNBC's "Saturday Night Politics," Donny Deutsch, argued on Wednesday there is "no difference" between President Donald Trump and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. "What is the difference between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump? he asked during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "I'm not saying there's a holocaust, but when you look at the tactics ... this is where we are right now." During the interview, Deutsch, himself of Jewish heritage, also lambasted Jewish supporters of the president. "How dare you!" he exclaimed. "How dare you, with what our people have gone through in history, and you see a man who is a dictator. And once you give a man absolute power, he...

    MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch lectured Jewish Trump supporters during a Wednesday appearance on “Morning Joe.” While Deutsch made it clear that he was not saying there was another Holocaust already occurring in America, he warned that could be coming because there was “no difference” between President Donald Trump’s rhetoric and what “Adolf Hitler preached” in Germany in the 1930s.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday bashed Catholic supporters of President Trump ahead of his appearance at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. Speaking at an event hosted by the liberal nun activist Sister Simone Campbell, Pelosi expressed "dismay" that the NCPB invited Trump to deliver the keynote address at its annual event. "What would Christ do? We always say that," Pelosi said. "Well, there's a big difference between what Christ would do and what they're honoring this morning." When introducing Pelosi, Campbell said that her event, though taking place "in the shadow" of the NCPB, was intended to combat the "all-too-flawed, narrow, and politically opportunistic view of our faith" that the president's Catholic supporters take. Campbell, who has been investigated...
    Former MSNBC host Donny Deutsch criticized Jewish people who plan on voting for President Trump. Deutsch, who has a history of making inflammatory remarks on-air, called on Jewish Trump supporters to "wake up" during a Wednesday morning segment on MSNBC's Morning Joe. “How dare you?" Deutsch said. "How dare you, with what our people have gone through in history and you see a man who is a dictator? And once you give a man absolute power, he is possible of anything.

    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman on Wednesday issued a dire warning about what’s to come in the 2020 presidential election, and he predicted that supporters of President Donald Trump would try to violently disrupt voting. “I wonder how many people are ready for just how bad the next six weeks plus are going to be,” Krugman wrote on Twitter. “This is going to be the most dangerous election since 1860, with substantial odds that America as we know it will be damaged or even destroyed.” The Nobel Prize-winning economist then walked through how Trump will try to contest the results of the election if he loses, as current polls suggest he will. “There is… a near-zero percent chance that he’ll accept the result if...

    As he himself said even before he won the presidential election in 2016, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Unfortunately for the American people, this wild-sounding claim appears to be truer than not, at least for the majority of his supporters, and that is something that should disturb us. It should also motivate us to explore the science underlying such peculiar human behavior, so we can learn from it, and potentially inoculate against it. In all fairness, we should recognize that lying is sadly not uncommon for politicians on both sides of the political aisle, but the frequency and magnitude of the current president’s lies should have us all wondering why they...

    Ron Stagg, Ryerson University The United States is in a mess. COVID-19 is raging out of control in many areas of the country.
