^I saw that. There's been a growing push to eliminate the Electoral College, but I doubt well see much movement on this as it would need bipartisan agreement. That won't happen until a Republican loses because of that.

It takes a while for reforms of this magnitude to catch on. I've been advocating for it for decades, but I've never seen it getting this much attention. It really needs to go on the ballot so that people can vote on it.

^ It's nice to see Fox news occasionally show some journalistic integrity.

This is actually the second time (that I can remember off the top of my head) that Fox has slapped back at Trump. It could be a sign that his Cult status is slipping, but it's a little too early to tell about that.

He's also got two, and maybe three, real Republicans running against him for the nomination. One wild card element is if someone like Bill Weld wants him out bad enough to run as a third candidate-- that would virtually guarantee a democratic win.

^ Please don't get our hopes up! Last time I was optimistic was that first Tuesday in November of 2016. And look where it got me. :sob:

^That's the danger. People get too complacent and stay home.

^ I hope you''re right. Voter turnout is crucial for the Dems. And voter suppression is crucial for the GOP.

I wonder about that. He's got a hard-core base, but I don't think it's that large. And you've got those reliables who will always vote anti-Democrat no matter what. But I think that a lot of Right-Wing voters and Right-leaning independents are appalled by The Donald and will stay home. We'll see....

Trump's now making up weather reports.

Remember the good old days when this would have ended a Presidency?

I saw that on CNN. :lol: And it's completely random and meaningless. He just lies for the sake of lying. :lol:
