Trump says the USPS can't handle the load of mail in ballots. Right now, the USPS handles about 470 million pieces of mail per day. Total votes of Clinton vs Trump was about 128 million. If everyone who votes this year does it by mail on the same day, that's an increase of about 27% of normal load, well below the system's max capacity.  STFU about overwhelming the mail, Donnie.

Dear reporters,

Now's your chance to ask him some tough/honest questions. Get him while he's still a bit off his guard

Don't ask him about the shooting. He's not going to know anything more about it than he did when he came out.

Thank you,

The Public

No Line For Beer: Reverend J: You can't have it at the White House dumbass.

He can.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-de​l​iver-republican-convention-speech-whit​e-house-legal/

The Hatch Act forbids the use of government buildings and employees for campaign activities, with few exceptions. While the president and vice president are exempt, any White House or government employee who helps facilitate campaign activity risks breaking federal law.

Technically he can, but he has to do everything himself, which is never going to happen.

Praising the soldiers that responding when their state called them to service would be appropriate.  Praising the Confederacy would not be.  There's zero chance that he understands the difference and zero chance he doesn't praise the latter and not the former.
