He can't actually cancel the election so this is his limp dick alternative.

Really, there has been mail in voting in FL since I can remember. Granted I can't remember very far but it's been there for a while. The military votes by mail. What is Trump afraid of?

The only problem I see with voting by mail is that it's not completely private so some drunken redneck husband beats his wife if she doesn't vote republican. So what's the problem?

He's shiat scared.
 
2020-05-21 5:19:23 PM  
And of course commentators quickly point out the connection to Ukraine extortion and that he was impeached for exactly what he is trying to do here.

A handy reminder, if needed ..

Whenever he makes his asinine claims about fraud, the press needs to push him to either provide specific examples or STFU.

Except for a very very small number of reporters, the press are a bunch of candy ass wusses who care about their jobs more than getting the truth to the people.

And did it illegally. And justified it by saying it's OK for him, because he has to stay in the white house. He said this just before hopping on a plane to a photo op.
 
2020-05-21 6:06:22 PM  
And that's not even close to the most ridiculous thing he's done today.
 
2020-05-21 6:06:33 PM  
Trump changed is legal residence to Florida.

This is because Florida's forfeiture laws in law suits allow you to keep your primary residence.  Which is claiming is Mar a Lago.

However, Mar A Lago legally cannot be used as a residence for voter registration because it is a business.

So Trump voted illegally.

Well, more people will be allowed to, so fark off!

Bingo!  The president who is so concerned with voter fraud, committed voter fraud
 
2020-05-21 6:09:15 PM  
Trump also threatened legal action against his campaign manager for bad poll numbers.

What I'm trying to say is that Trump threatens legal actions consistently against all threats, both real and imagined.

I bet all of Trump's NYC house keeping staff took multiple upper deckers in his gold shiatters when the pandemic hit.

 "They see what Trump's poll numbers are, and their philosophy is simple: 'If we can't win with the electorate we have, then we try to create an environment that gives us an electorate that we can win with.'"

In case you were wondering why the White House's response to COVID-19 was seemingly to try to get as many people to die as possible, there's your answer.

Which is - of course - done with typical Trump idiocy as seniors, a typically Republican constituency, are far more at risk from COVID.

Mail-in voting is only temporary.Right now only angry bored people over 60 vote and it rewards those in power to keep it that way.
Leadership in both parties will both lose power.
Making the vote easy is going to go down in history as what killed wacko free market conservatism.

But if ANYONE can vote, that makes it less special for him!

Each state is allowed to run the election how they see fit within certain parameters.
Vote by mail is allowed.
 
2020-05-21 6:17:24 PM  
Russia can't hack a mail-in ballot that is its own paper trail.

There were 65,853,514 votes in 2016 that were NOT for him!! How much more evidence do you NEED??
 
2020-05-21 6:18:52 PM  
It's interesting how much Trump cares about election security these days. Not at all hypocritical.
 
2020-05-21 6:20:58 PM  
Maybe if we designed a voting system that was transmissible by air, like some viruses ...

I'm not sure he did vote by mail. I have seen at least one report that his ballot was hand delivered by a republican runner. A process condemned by the right as ballot harvesting. ( Source needed)

It really must suck to live your life in constant fear.
 
2020-05-21 6:26:58 PM  
How long until we get evidence that their entire pandemic "response" was designed to keep multiple waves of Covid coming in order to discourage people from voting?

I'm no lawologist, but it's my understanding that you can sue for anything you can come up with. The trick is in finding a law-talker to take your case on, and then finding a judge who won't throw it out while forcing you to repay everyone involved in your bullshiat suit.

By the time it's all said and done, this election is going to end up at the Supreme Court.  Which may be the plan.

Most likely, he'll try to shut the USPS down on the West Coast to save money for more Wall.
