Batman: to be honest, i'm not sure that Biden is actually running the country, he doesn't seem to know where he is half the time, and when he speaks on camera he doesn't know what he's saying half the time

Personally I don't doubt Biden is fully involved running the country 100% of the time. An occasional word flub is not much concern. Biden has an experienced team.

In comparison the other guy is just unhinged can't sit through a briefing and in a potential new presidency will be surrounded by a team even worse than his last bunch including worse grifters, worse crazies, and worse white nationalists in higher positions than last time.

so who is running the country at the moment, nobody knows!

 

alternatively, if you want to know who is running the country, you can have Trump. you absolutely know he's going to smash everything in his path to do exactly what he says he's going to do!

Trump barred in a second state, SCOTUS with a lot of work to do. or do they just collect all of them and rule once?

the SCOTUS has spoken, Trump stays on ballot

 

Trump says: an "important decision" that was "very well-crafted"

Of course he would say that, he'd be crying "persecution", "victim" and "witch hunt" if he lost that one 🙄 pathetic really.

Trump needs money for his election campaign, (Cough court expenses).

Elon Musk may come charging in on his pony.
Elon's businesses in the past thrived on Government subsidies/contracts/regulations may need the 'right' Government.

 

Donald Trump, Seeking Cash Infusion, Meets With Elon Musk
It’s not clear whether Mr. Musk will spend any of his billions on the former president’s behalf. If he does, he could erase Mr. Trump’s financial disadvantage in the 2024 race.

March 5, 2024
Donald Trump, who is urgently seeking a cash infusion to aid his presidential campaign, met on Sunday in Palm Beach, Fla., with Elon Musk, one of the world’s richest men, and a few wealthy Republican donors, according to three people briefed on the meeting who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a private discussion.

 

Mr. Trump and his team are working to find additional major donors to shore up his finances as he heads into an expected general election against President Biden. Mr. Trump has praised Mr. Musk to allies and hopes to have a one-on-one meeting with the billionaire soon, according to a person who has discussed the matter with Mr. Trump.

 

It’s not yet clear whether Mr. Musk plans to spend any of his fortune on Mr. Trump’s behalf. But his recent social media posts suggest he thinks it’s essential that Mr. Biden be defeated in November — and people who have spoken to Mr. Musk privately confirmed that is indeed his view.

Nikky still waiting for Trump to slip on a ramp.

That is a big story. Tesla may be keen on the protectionism. Tesla might also like EV tax breaks to continue or to favor Tesla a little more.

She's out, but has exposed a fair few holes in Trump's campaign: https://www.politico.com/news/2024/03/06/haley-trump-weakness-00145472

https://plus.thebulwark.com/p/the-definitive-answer-to-the-question >> this article is partially paywalled but the free bits (the first two sections) make some very good points.

USA student loan debt is huge US$1.6 trillion

CNN: So far, the Biden administration has canceled about $138 billion in federal student loan debt. That's about one-third of the $430 billion that would've been canceled under the president's one-time forgiveness plan, which was struck down by the Supreme Court last year, and 9% of all outstanding federal student loan debt.

College educated in USA overwhelmingly vote Democrat. Like 2016 - 2024 will not be decided by people with college degrees. Hillary Clinton could not understand that. I fervently hope Biden's team does.

I think Allan Lichtman might be getting ready to make his prediction.

 

 

Note that this was recorded before Nikki Haley dropped out.
