Trump Campaign Fails Miserably At Photoshopping Biden
An ad released by President Trump’s re-election campaign falsely depicts former Vice President Joe Biden as "hiding" alone in his basement using an image edited to remove several other people.
The Trump campaign tweeted the ad Wednesday. The edited picture of Biden sitting on the floor of a house appears about five seconds in, as a narrator claims Biden is “hiding ... in his basement.”

Biden will beat Trump, says historian who predicted every presidential race since 1984

Biden will beat Trump, says historian who predicted every presidential race since 1984
The historian who has correctly predicted every presidential election since 1984 – including President Donald Trump’s win in 2016 – has announced his pick for 2020: Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.


The truth of the matter is, Donald Trump inherited a growing economy from President Obama and me. And just like everything else he inherited in his life, he squandered it. - Joe Biden

Trump Says Beirut Was Bombed. World Ignores Him.
At a coronavirus briefing on Tuesday evening, President Trump said an explosion that rocked Beirut earlier in the day was caused by a “bomb of some kind.” 
Officials in Lebanon had previously stated the blast came from a large quantity of explosive materials that were being held in a warehouse, but Trump, citing conversations with top U.S. military personnel, characterized the explosion as an “attack.” 


Trump says schools should open because: "This thing's going away. It will go away like things go away."

Trump Lies About Bringing NASA Back From The Dead. My God, He Lies About Everything.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter today (Aug. 5) to announce that he brought NASA back from being "Closed & Dead." 
In a tweet posted today, Trump said that he had resurrected the space agency. But the claim doesn't hold up under scrutiny: NASA has never closed since it was founded in 1958, and it has certainly never been "dead."

Trump Believes In Some States Having Rights. 
When President Donald Trump directed late Monday that states now pick up some of the tab for the nationwide deployment of the National Guard to respond to the coronavirus, he carved out two big exceptions: Texas and Florida.
While all other states and territories will have to shell out millions to cover 25 percent of their National Guard costs starting later this month, Texas and Florida will be fully covered. 







My bill with @kamalaharris and @berniesanders to give everyone $2,000/month until the end of this crisis (and 3 months after) is retroactive to March. Working families deserve this money. Let’s get that $12,000 into their pockets ASAP, and then keep the money flowing. - Sen. Ed Markey tweet

Jesus. It's OK To Deny Puerto Ricans Their Rights For 2 More Months?
A federal judge on Monday ruled that it is unconstitutional to deny Puerto Ricans living in the U.S. territory access to three federal welfare programs in a major decision cheered by many.
However, the judge also granted a two-month administrative stay of the injunction at the federal government’s request, which means the decision for now will apply only to the nine plaintiffs in the case.
