Will Trump rig the election by shutting down the US Postal Service?

...Shame on you Mr. Trump

WASHINGTON — Welcome to the next election battleground: the post office.

President Trump’s yearslong assault on the Postal Service and his increasingly dire warnings about the dangers of voting by mail are colliding as the presidential campaign enters its final months. The result has been to generate new concerns about how he could influence an election conducted during a pandemic in which greater-than-ever numbers of voters will submit their ballots by mail.

In tweet after all-caps tweet, Mr. Trump has warned that allowing people to vote by mail will result in a “CORRUPT ELECTION” that will “LEAD TO THE END OF OUR GREAT REPUBLICAN PARTY” and become the “SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES.” He has predicted that children will steal ballots out of mailboxes. On Thursday, he dangled the idea of delaying the election instead.

Members of Congress and state officials in both parties rejected the president’s suggestion and his claim that mail-in ballots would result in widespread fraud. But they are warning that a huge wave of ballots could overwhelm mail carriers unless the Postal Service, in financial difficulty for years, receives emergency funding that Republicans are blocking during negotiations over another pandemic relief bill.
And the person running the Postal System is a lifelong Republican who's contributed $1.25 million to their political campaigns in the past.

Talk about collusion.

...anyways looks like Trump will fix the election somehow.

What devious piece of shit.

Cling to Power at all cost

Sure, why not? Were you aware that for all the wank about "collusion" being unconstituional arising from the last federal election, there is in fact nothing in the constitution that talks about it?

:biggrin:

Things couldn't be going better for him at this juncture.

IF it should turn out that he doesn't make the cut....he's always got COVID to blame. What a golden opportunity to maintain his 'it's not my fault' default, for someone who needs to blame ANYTHING or anyone for his failures. :D

I gave up 37 seconds in, when he mentioned the words "mainstream media" (presumably for the first time).

It's always amusing to see the folks who vilify "mainstream media" for its lack of objectivity rely so heavily on "alternative media," a far, far less objective source of information.

Says you. You've been watching lamestream editorials and infomercials for so long you probably don't remember what news is.

37 seconds in, eh? So you missed the part where he said if Trump had have gone all out in Syria the only second term he'd have supported was a prison term? And you can sit there with a straight face and wax lyrical about "objectivity" when you are flat out letting someone finish stating their point of view?

Perhaps I should return the favour and write your next post for you; "Maddow good! Orangeman baaa-aaa-aaa-aaad! Orangeman baaa-aaa-aaa-aaad!"
