8.6.20

It's Thursday. There are 89 days until the presidential election. Americans are scared to send their kids back to school, Facebook finally takes down some Trump bullshit and finally some more reasons for Democrats to worry.

Note: Oh man. What's shaking, beautiful patriots? Y'all good this morning? Yeah, we know. Us too. We like to come at y'all in the late morning/noon hour with some laughs and some motivational cussing. But some days the shit is just so bleak, it's all you can do to throw a middle finger at the White House. And today is one of those days. It's not just that the death toll is now at more than 158,000, and the president of the United States is still insisting it will just go away. It's not just that Trump can say there will be a vaccine around Election Day and the wimps at Reuters blast it out to the world like it's true. No, what got us is that Dr. Fauci is getting death threats and had to hire security for his daughters. We have hoped, against all evidence, that this country is still a great place, and 2016 was just an awful anomaly. But it's not, and it wasn't. The truth of the matter is the U.S. has a real scumbag problem, and it seems to be getting worse. Anyway, we got your back, Fauci. Like, you're still a part of an administration that is letting us die, but you've at least told the truth about it. And to the cousin-banging trash of Trumpland, stop fucking with Fauci. He might just save your life. More: Huff Post

Note two: Chad Wolf is testifying in the Senate today. We got an advance look, so we can tell you what happens and save you time. Chad Wolf lies. Chad Wolf sucks. The end. 

Note three: 55 years ago today, LBJ (Not Lebron) signed into law the Voting Rights Act. It's not as great as hanging out with Diamond and Silk, but it's still pretty good. And then seven years ago, the moderate institutionalist John Roberts gutted it. So now we're back to seeing long lines in Black precincts and fucking poll taxes in Florida. If you need something to motivate you today, let it be this. 

Note four: Oh Geraldo. You would think after getting his nose broken in a tabloid tv trash fight, he'd want to redeem himself. You would think after the Capone's vault thing, he'd at least want to stop embarrassing himself. Well, if you watched him interview Trump this morning, you know he's managing to find new lows still to this day. He asked him about boaters and how Melania feels about Trump being treated so unfairly and GERALDO CALLED TRUMP A CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST. And that's all we're gonna say about that.

Note five: If we read one more kiss-ass feature about how McConnell is in a tough spot, we're gonna lose our shit. McConnell is in a tough spot because he waited for months to do anything, and then he joined the Trump idiots in bringing out a bill that was loaded with money for Pentagon hardware and West Wing renovations. What the hell does Mitch have on the Capitol Hill press corps that they kiss his ass like this? 

Note six: As for the other LBJ, King James responded to Trump's attacks on the NBA in his usual classy way. "I don't really think the basketball community is sad to be losing his viewership… The game will go on without his eyes on it." Yes it does, sir. Even though the Lakes looked like shit yesterday. 

Note seven: Y'all know one of our rules around here is always read whatever Nancy Armour writes. More: USA Today

Note eight: This was the funniest shit we saw yesterday. Trumpland's list of preferred debate moderators is a joke. Oh and congrats to everyone whose name made the cut. Now you're a joke too. Except you, Hoda. You're pretty awesome, and it sucks these assholes used you like this. If it takes us a thousand years, we will clear your name! More: The Daily Beast

Note nine: That's it for the notes today. We hope y'all have a wonderful day. You've almost made it to the weekend. Be safe today, and we'll see you tomorrow on the same Bat channel at the same Bat time-ish. 

School daze

With Trump still freaking everyone out by talking about our kids' immune systems, Americans are understandably worried about sending their kids back to school. According to a new WaPo poll, only 36 percent approve of Trump's handling of school opening, and 63 percent disapprove. So now we know that 36 percent of Americans don't give a fuck about their kids. The partisan breakdown is breathtaking. White people -- 57/43 -- think it's safe to send their kids back to school. For Black people, the numbers are at 21/79. For Latino, they're at 27/72. Gosh, what could the difference be? It's so fucked up. One school that Pence visited and hailed as a model has now seen a bunch of kids have to get quarantined. It's a shame that our national press corps is in the 36 percent who don't give a shit. More: Washington Post, ABC News, CBS News

Zuck still sucks

But Facebook finally took down one of Trump's super dishonest lies. This one was about kids' immunity to COVID. That's right. Yesterday a famously Trump-friendly tech giant punished him for LYING ABOUT THE HEALTH OF OUR CHILDREN, and it's not even a Top 10 story today. Twitter appeared to be finally getting tough on this bullshit too, but it turns out they just hit the Trump campaign account because Jack is scared shitless of the big orange chickenshit. And don't expect Zuck's fealty to the truth to last long. You can check out this Buzzfeed story to see what we mean. We're up against it, folks. Lots of foreign countries and Silicon Valley all working with the racist backwards trash of America to sink this country and put people who can read in jail.

Worry!

Things have been going just too well for us poll-wise this summer, so it's nice to have some things to freak out about again. Let's start with the polling. CNN's Harry Enten writes that the polling has stabilized, which means Trump's freefall is somewhat and somehow over for now. Yeah, we don't understand it either, but it's probably just time to accept that about 40 percent of this country would eat shit-covered paste if Trump told them to. The other bad news is that Trump outraised Biden last month. It was close, and Biden put up a big number but we can stop pretending Trump is just gonna lie down and take an L. The good news, and Biden's fundraising team deserves a lot of credit for this, is that Biden has erased Trump's cash advantage. That seemed unthinkable in the spring. It definitely helps that Biden isn't really spending any money, but we're still in a really good place. The point of this section is to bring us all back down to Earth. This won't be a landslide. The scum we're up against will cheat every way they can to win. So let's take it to them. More: Washington Post, CNN
