Mark Meadows is the culprit.
shields the trump from direct responsibility.

Three October surprises:

  1. big bonus checks go out from treasury
  2. some medicine will be approved for corona19
  3. some vaccine will be approved for corona19

“Reopening” the economy

Closing the door to desperately needed relief

Funny I saw no mention of Nancy’s comment from a few weeks ago, that dem’s would be open to reducing the $600 weekly benefit, signaling that they would cave to repugs demands. Sure it came with a hook, that the unemployment rate would have to drop, but those numbers are not hard to manipulate, they’ve been doing it for years.

Battle ground states with Republican governors serving their second terms, no less. Trump’s going for the easy layup with their assist.
