Oh, no!!! Whatever will you do without your precious election???

President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested delaying the November election until ‘people can properly, securely and safely vote.’

But Trump does not have the power to delay the election. That would take an act of Congress, which is highly unlikely to happen.

Trump’s pronouncement, however, came right after news the U.S. economy shrank by 33 per cent in the April-June quarter. That number marks the worst quarterly plunge ever and comes as the coronavirus pandemic has shut down businesses, thrown tens of millions out of work and sent unemployment to 14.7 per cent.

Yeah, I mean we do have a hoax and all. Hmmm. This fits perfectly with my column this week at TPC – the gist was that the whole shitshow is utterly irrelevant at this point. I’m still sticking with all my predictions.
