      Trump spread orange COVID

      Oranger than Cheetos wrapped in lace

      Coughing and hacking in your face

      Infecting you.


      He spread Orange COVID

      He worked quite hard at his task.

      Of course, he never wore a mask.

      Now you’re sick too.


      He was desperate for re-election

      And hoping to stay out of jail.

      He never dreamed a mass infection

      Would be his latest epic fail.


      He blamed Obama and Hillary

      Surely it was her damned e-mails

      That killed two hundred thousand people

      On his crowded campaign trails.


      He said drinking Chlorox 

      And jamming bright lights up your butt

      Would make you immune from any virus.

      My God, what a nut!


      The polls show him dropping

      Even Fox knows he’s a hopeless case

      But he will go on coughing

      And spewing spittle in your face.


      This election is even viler

      Than your very worst fears

      And I still can see Orange COVID

      Through my tears.

    a July 2017survey of 5,000 Americans found that a quarter of U.S. adults like the idea of having “a strong leader who does not have to bother with Congress and elections,” while 18 percent say that “having the army rule” would be a good or very good idea. Accounting for overlap, three in 10 Americans embrace at least one of these two authoritarian options.

    When it comes to ballot fraud, you can be assured a Republican will find a way to commit it.

    California GOP installed unofficial ballot drop-off boxes. State officials say they’re illegal.

    “Operating unofficial ballot drop boxes — especially those misrepresented as official drop boxes — is not just misleading to voters, it’s a violation of state law,” California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Democrat, told The Post in an email. “My office is coordinating with local officials to address the multiple reports of unauthorized ballot drop boxes. Californians should only use official ballot drop boxes that have been deployed and secured by their county elections office."

    Erecting or advertising unofficial ballot boxes could be a felony that carries a two-to-four-year prison sentence, according to the secretary of state’s office.

    I wonder if Wadhams ever gets tired of always being wrong. Saw him on a news show the other night where he said Gardner & Boebert will both easily win.
