EARLY VOTING IS NOW UNDERWAY IN ALL STATES THAT ALLOW IT, except for New York and parts of Florida (begins Oct. 24), Maryland (Oct. 26), Washington D.C. (Oct. 27), and Oklahoma (Oct. 29).

What did Donald Trump do today?

He rounded another corner.

Today, Trump told a crowd of senior citizens at The Villages, a Florida retirement community, that the United States was "rounding the corner beautifully" on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Also today, the United States shattered its previous daily record for new cases, with more than 83,000 Americans testing positive.

Trump also used his speech at the Villages to accuse Joe Biden of using the pandemic to scare people. COVID-19 is known to have killed almost 230,000 Americans, and that total is expected to rise to nearly 400,000 by the end of Trump's term. 

Why should this matter to me?

  • Ignoring a crisis with a six-figure death toll doesn't make it go away.
  • A president this indifferent to a disaster this big is unfit for office, if not psychotic.
