Ok. I'm tired of talking about the debate. I am ready for the next scandal.

We are about due, aren't we?

3. There may be a war that we are involved with as a distraction.

NOTE: There's evidence to suggest that just a month before Trump faces Election Day in America his ally in Turkey, Erdogan, has helped restart a war—that may draw in America—alongside Trump allies in Azerbaijan. Stay tuned. Starting a war was on my list of possible Trump gambits.

6. Oh, hell to the no. He had better not even *think* about it.

We are already dealing with a shattered economy, social unrest, and a pandemic. If trump thinks a war would fly, on top of everything else we're going through and everything coming to light about his finances... NOPE. Not even.

7. Be ready for anything before Inauguration Day.

Be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. This seems to be the only way I can get through the last 4 years.

Now that his taxes are a major issue he is even more unhinged and desperate to stay out of jail and keep his $$$.

9. True, and good to keep in mind with the situation we're in.

But I have a feeling the military would not fall in line so easily with any sort of war this time around. He has treated them horribly and they have no desire to be his puppets.

5. What counts as 'next'? A couple of things overshadowed by the shitshow:

Trump official releases unverified Russian intel on Clinton previously rejected by Senate panel

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified a letter Tuesday that included unverified Russian intelligence about 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, which was previously dismissed by the Senate Intelligence Committee, a congressional source confirmed to The Hill.

Ratcliffe is coming under fire for releasing the unverified intelligence, which claims Clinton had approved a plan to “stir up a scandal” against Trump by trying to tie him to Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Asked about the allegations in the letter declassified by Ratcliffe and released by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the source added that the Senate Intelligence Committee had been “aware of this intel for years and dismissed it.”

Democrats blasted Ratcliffe for making public what they describe as disinformation being spread by one of the U.S.’s political foes. The intelligence chief denied in a statement that it was Russian disinformation.

Yeah, so a US intelligence director using Russian rumours to attack Americans. A bit scandalous, I feel. Also, $300 million that was diverted from actual coronavirus work to a feel-good campaign designed to benefit the business partner of the crazed Trump appointee is not even making people feel good:

HHS ad blitz sputters as celebrities back away

The health department’s $300 million-plus, taxpayer-funded vehicle to boost confidence in President Donald Trump’s response to the pandemic is sputtering. Celebrities are refusing to participate, and staff are arraying against it. Some complain of the unstated aim of helping Trump’s re-election. Others point to an ill-prepared video team and a 22-year-old political appointee who has repeatedly asserted control despite having no public health expertise, according to six people with close knowledge of the campaign and documents related to its operations.
...
A central problem: The video firm recommended by HHS to execute the campaign has struggled to meet deadlines, retain staff and even find the contact information of celebrities to participate in the videos, said three people with knowledge of the operation and documents reviewed by POLITICO.

That firm, DD&T, is led by a filmmaker who had no prior experience making U.S. public health campaigns and is also the business partner of Caputo, the Trump loyalist who served as the health department's spokesperson before taking leave this month.

"They had no reason being the people working on this campaign," the person involved in the process added. "They did not have any connections to filming crews, companies or anything."
