    And Trump employs his usual 'playbook' in his search for a convenient 'scapegoat.'

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/25/polit...ion/index.html


    President Donald Trump has found his convention scapegoat: North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper.


    The Democratic executive, narrowly elected for the first time in 2016, came under fire from the Republican President on Monday morning, when Trump turned to Twitter to pressure him to guarantee Republicans will allow the convention in Charlotte to be "fully occupied" in August despite coronavirus concerns and threatened to move the convention if assurances cannot be made.

    The strategy from Trump is clear, according to a Republican operative familiar with the convention process: Trump is attempting to force Cooper "to be the bad guy," the operative said, so if changes have to be made to the convention, it can be blamed on the Democratic governor, not the Republican planning committee.

    It's a notably public spat for a Democrat who has kept a relatively low national profile for much of his career.

    ...to pull the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, NC...

    Please do.

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/25/polit...ion/index.html


    President Donald Trump began a solemn Memorial Day railing against North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, ahead of the 2020 Republican National Convention, threatening to pull it out of Charlotte, where the convention is expected to be held August 24 to 27.


    Trump contended that Cooper is "unable to guarantee" that the arena can be filled to capacity.

    "I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August," Trump said in a series of tweets. "Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed full attendance in the Arena. In other words, we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space."

    The President's calls for a "guarantee" from North Carolina officials overlooks the uncertainty surrounding the summertime levels of the coronavirus and the challenges of hosting a political convention -- or any large event -- in the middle of an ongoing public health crisis.
    In an interview last week, Cooper said that data and science will guide his decisions on whether the state can hold large gatherings like the convention. He said the Republican convention, which he supported bringing to Charlotte, will be treated like any other event.

    "This is not political. This is not emotional. This is based on health experts, data and science and that's it for everybody to see," Cooper told CNN. "No one is being favored or disfavored over the other."

    And your evidence 'of a chance for fraud' is...what?

    Voter fraud, which has never been demonstrated except in minor incidents in this country, is a common conspiracy theory among right-wing adherents and is also used by Trump without proof.

    Then try these-Rolling Stone isn't the only publication writing on the subject. Trump is lying as well as being frightened.

    1.https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/08/polit...tee/index.html

    During his daily coronavirus briefing on Tuesday, President Donald Trump made very clear that voting by mail -- an alternative many are suggesting to deal with the ongoing stay-at-home directives -- is a very bad thing. And more than that, he suggested, it's deeply corrupt.

    "No, mail ballots, they cheat," said Trump. "OK, people cheat. Mail ballots are a very dangerous thing for this country because they are cheaters."

    When President Donald Trump doesn’t like the message, he shoots the messenger.

    So it was this past week when he took very personally a scientific study that should give pause to anyone thinking of following Trump’s lead and ingesting a potentially risky drug for the coronavirus. He branded the study’s researchers, financed in part by his own administration, his “enemy.”

    Boastful on the occasion of Memorial Day, Trump exaggerated some of his accomplishments for veterans’ health care. Over the weekend, he also repeated a baseless allegation of rampant mail-in voting fraud and resurrected claims of unspecified conspiracies against him in 2016.

    3.https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlo...il-vote-fraud/


    On Wednesday morning, President Trump threatened to withhold aid from Michigan and Nevada because of purportedly illegal activity related to absentee ballots. In reality, the states are doing nothing illegal — they are trying to ensure voters can exercise their right to vote without jeopardizing their health during a pandemic.

    Even putting aside the likely unconstitutionality of the president conditioning aid to states upon acceding to his political demands, Trump’s unsupported claims are exceedingly troubling because they seek to cast doubt on the legitimacy and fairness of the upcoming elections without reason. Trump may not realize it, but they are also politically counterproductive for him: Rural Republican voters, even in blue states, may be the ones most hurt in November by attacks on mail-in balloting.

    • President Trump said Republicans lose out in mail-in voting, which several states are already using to cut the risk of transmitting the coronavirus.
    • More than a dozen states and U.S. territories have adjusted their own presidential primaries, with some opting for a mail-in system to replace in-person voting and others delaying the primaries entirely.
    President Donald Trump took aim Wednesday at voting by mail, saying Republicans lose out in the process that several states are already using to cut the risk of transmitting the coronavirus.

    “Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to state wide mail-in voting. Democrats are clamoring for it,” Trump tweeted.

    “Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesn’t work out well for Republicans.”

    President Donald Trump has issued a call for schools forced to close amid the coronavirus pandemic to be "opened ASAP," as new polling suggests that Americans do not believe it is safe yet to send children back to school.

    Trump shared the sentiment in a tweet on Sunday night, writing: "Schools in our country should be opened ASAP."

    "Much very good information now available," the president said, tagging British political adviser and commentator Steve Hilton and Fox News in his tweet.

    The president's demand for schools to open appeared to be inspired by comments Hilton made on a Fox News panel about whether it was safe for schools to reopen...

    ...Speaking on Fox News, Hilton had said that "there won't be a recovery" in the United States "unless we reopen schools now."

    "If children can't go to school, parents can't go to work," said Hilton, who previously served as director of strategy for former British Prime Minister David Cameron.

    Meanwhile, he said: "We're told schools must be closed to keep kids safe. But they're not in danger. According to [the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] data, children under 18 make up only 2 percent of cases and 0.67 percent of hospitalizations. Children under 14 make up just 0.02 percent of deaths."
    Hilton then went on to accuse the "media misinformation machine" of "fearmongering" by reporting on "a new mystery disease that affects children."

    The political adviser appeared to be referring to Kawasaki Disease, an acute febrile illness of unknown cause that predominantly affects children under 5 years of age, according to the CDC.

    The CDC has said it has been investigating reports of "multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C)" amid the coronavirus pandemic, asserting that the syndrome "may present with Kawasaki disease-like features," which sees different parts of the body inflamed.

    "We're talking about a handful of cases, which are almost always treatable," Hilton said. "How offensive to try and frighten parents about the safety of their children," he said.

    The political adviser then acknowledged that while children may be at low risk of suffering serious health consequences of coronavirus, there are concerns that they could risk infecting others who may be at higher risk.

    Hilton sought to shut down those concerns, however, by citing findings from a study conducted by Icelandic company deCODE genetics, which had been studying coronavirus with Iceland's Directorate of Health and the National University Hospital.

    Trump is trying hard, as is the RNC, to stop states authorizing mail-in ballots:

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/24/polit...uit/index.html


    The Republican National Committee and other Republican groups have filed a lawsuit against California to stop the state from mailing absentee ballots to all voters ahead of the 2020 general election, a move that was made in response to the coronavirus pandemic.


    The suit comes after California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, announced this month that the state would move to encourage all voters to cast their ballots by mail in November -- the most widespread expansion of vote-by-mail that has been announced as a result of the pandemic and in the nation's most populous state.

    The RNC's lawsuit challenges that step, marking a significant escalation in the legal battles between Republicans and Democrats that are currently being waged in more than a dozen states.

    "Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom's executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement.
    "Newsom's illegal power grab is a recipe for disaster that would destroy the confidence Californians deserve to have in the security of their vote."

    McDaniel's comments echo President Donald Trump who has expressed vehement opposition to Newsom's order and has pushed back strenuously against expansions to vote-by-mail across the country.
    On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted another attack on vote-by-mail, which included several claims for which he provided no evidence.

    Trump is frightened of mail-in voting...or maybe he's just a frightened little man?

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp
    Seemingly terrified of losing his reelection bid at least in part due to mail-in voting, President Trump continued to be dishonest about the process’s legitimacy in a tweet so packed with lies it’s surprising he was able to fit them all within the character count.

    Trump’s Sunday morning factless tweet began with a proclamation: “The United States cannot have all Mail-In Ballots.” What followed was a greatest hits list of falsehoods, conspiracy theories, doctoring of documents and physical intimidation, all topped with something seemingly straight from a QAnon forum: “Trying to use Covid for this Scam!”

    “The United States cannot have all Mail-In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history,” Trump wrote. “People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries and ‘force’ people to sign. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary. Trying to use Covid for this Scam!”

    The new Trump 'resort'...?

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp
    As President Trump’s motorcade pulled into his golf club in Virginia on an overcast Sunday, a small group of protesters waited outside the entrance. One held up a sign.

    “I care do U?” it read. “100,000 dead.”

    Mr. Trump and his advisers have said that he does, but he has made scant effort to demonstrate it this Memorial Day weekend. He finally ordered flags lowered to half-staff at the White House only after being badgered to do so by his critics and otherwise took no public notice as the American death toll from the coronavirus pandemic approached a staggering 100,000.

    While the country neared six digits of death, the president who repeatedly criticized his predecessor for golfing during a crisis spent the weekend on the links for the first time since March. When he was not zipping around on a cart, he was on social media embracing fringe conspiracy theories, amplifying messages from a racist and sexist Twitter account
    and lobbing playground insults at perceived enemies, including his own former attorney general.
    This was a death toll that Mr. Trump once predicted would never be reached. In late February, he said there were only 15 coronavirus cases in the United States, understating even then the actual number, and declared that “the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.” In the annals of the American presidency, it would be hard to recall a more catastrophically wrong prediction. Even after he later acknowledged that it would not be zero, he insisted the death toll would fall “substantially below the 100,000” mark.
