I wonder what other " situations" Trump cleaned up? He had the goods on Falwell

So Cohen cleaned up the poolboy situation before the election so Falwell could make a "clean endorsement" to tighten the evangelical vote. That was said on The Reid Out this evening.

I wonder what other situations he cleaned up? Who else does he have the goods on? Lindsey? Rubio? Ted Cruz? - Their fealty to Trump is mind boggling. Especially Lindsey, I don't think his seat was in jeopardy before he became a trump boot licker so maybe trump cleaned up situations for him? Hmmm I don't believe for one second, that these guys truly wanted to rally behind Trump because they believed in him. Not the way the Biden's former opponents are rallying behind him.

So Carly Fiorina says we shouldn't call them all racists or idiots

I'm sorry, if you still support Donald Trump. You fit in one of those categories.

I caught part of an interview she did on Morning Joe this morning. Then I watched another segment later with some women in NC. One lone democrat in the group, who was a black woman, the rest all republican. I switched the channel because I found myself yelling at the tv and becoming enraged after one of the white women started whitesplaining how Senator Harris was not African American, and another woman whining about " we white people have been vilified" or some bullshit. She also said, Donald Trump speaks for white people and the more white people are vilified the more they want to vote for trump.


I'm not sure what the point was of bringing up her ethnicity. No wait, I do know. You are fucking racist, that's why. Otherwise, it would not be a part of your conversation in consideration for President/Vice President.

Sorry Carly, these people are racist idiots. Anyone still supporting Trump, not named Trump are racist and or idiots and the ones named Trump are greedy grifting assholes who may also be racist idiots.

Update on my son

Thank you again DU for all the kind words and well wishes.

After my last post, my son was discharged from the hospital after doing well after being treated for pneumonia and given oxygen for 4 days. Unfortunately he was only home for a day before we had to return to the ER. The day he left the hospital, his O2 sat on oxygen was 96%. By the time we got home it was 93%. I knew it would take some time to be normal but by the next day it was dropping significantly low 80's, at one point dipping into the 70's. I thought the darned thing had to be broken. I checked it against mine, and mine consistently read 96-99 so I knew it wasn't broken.

The whole time as it was dropping , he had no shortness of breath - He would say he felt very very tired. He would go from his bed to the couch and just lay there.

He was re-admitted on Tuesday. His O2 sats have remained steady while on oxygen. Dropped to below normal whenever they try to wean him off the oxygen. The pulmonologist today said he has significant lung damage. However, said he's young so over time, lung tissue MAY heal. So I am hopeful. However it may take months, years. Another scary development today - Hyperkalemia - High potassium - so now he's being treated for that.

Fred Hampton (August 30, 1948 - December 4, 1969)
Fred Hampton was an active leader in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), leading their Youth Council of the organizationís West Suburban Branch. Hampton joined the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party (BPP) in November 1968. He quickly rose to a leadership position, becoming the deputy chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Party. He organized rallies, established a Free Breakfast program, and negotiated a peace pact among rival gangs. As a rising leader in the BPP, Hampton became the focus of an FBI investigation. On December 4, 1969, Hampton, along with fellow Black Panther Mark Clark, was murdered.

On the evening of December 3, 1969, William OíNeal, who was employed by the FBI to infiltrate the BPP, slipped a powerful sleeping drug into Hamptonís drink then left. Officers were dispatched to raid his apartment. They stormed in and opened fire, killing his security guard. Then they opened fire on Hamptonís bedroom where he laid unconscious from the drug with his sleeping, almost nine-month-pregnant fiancee. After the gunfire, he was found to only be wounded and not dead. Upon that discovery, an officer shot him twice in his head and killed him. The remaining seven Panthers who were not killed were all arrested and indicted by a grand jury on charges of attempted murder, armed violence, and a variety of weapons charges. These charges were eventually dropped when during a later investigation, it was discovered that Chicago Police fired ninety-nine shots while the Panthers only shot once.

My son was admitted to the hospital - they think its Covid - He had 2 negative Covid tests

Backstory - My son is in his twenties, healthy, no underlying health conditions.

About 2 weeks ago he started coughing. No other symptoms. A few days later I noticed he was sleeping a lot more, I remember Mayor Bottoms saying that was what she first noticed about her husband, he was sleeping a lot. I bought a pulse ox- His O2 Sat was low-92-93. I told him you need to get tested. Recalling an article I read about silent Hypoxia- People with Covid having low O2 sat but no difficulty breathing. He wasn't having any difficulty breathing. He kept saying "I'm fine mom". Kept saying he did not want to go to the ER because it was a hot spot for Covid. Sigh. A few more days go by and his cough is getting worse, O2 sat is even lower 89-91. I put my foot down and said YOU ARE GOING!!! -
That was last Saturday. He went to the ER. They did a battery of tests including COVID which came back negative. They diagnosed with respiratory failure and said it was asthma. I thought ok weird, he never had asthma before. But anything is possible. One can get Asthma as an adult. Besides other family members have asthma. They sent him home with an inhaler, steroids and antibiotics and to follow up with an Asthma clinic and PCP.

He saw the PCP a few days ago, she said she did not think it was Asthma, more likely Bronchitis. Gave him more steroids.

Yesterday He just did not look well. I said we need to go back to the ER. Again he refused. He is so damn stubborn! O2 sat was still low in the morning 91. PCP had said it would be low until he recovered. Well by the evening it was 84-85 and he was feeling weak and HE wanted to go to the ER at that point so I know he was feeling really awful if he wanted to go.

Covid test was again negative yesterday. They admitted him

He sends me a text this morning and said they told him despite the negative tests, they think its Covid.

One of the most frustrating things in all of this. Having to leave him at the ER twice. Since they are not letting anyone in besides the person being treated. And now that he has been admitted, not being able to visit.

Wear the damn mask people and stay the fuck home!
