OT / House GOP briefed on bountygate today and already getting their talking points out there to set the narrative. Dems, even though they control the affected committees, don’t get briefed till tomorrow.

MoscowMitch, suddenly worried about your mortality, Covid co-morbidity or bad polls?

You should be worried…
Another flu virus from Trump’s QPQ Election Patron - China!

With Trump in denial of Covid…
Just what we do not need!

Meanwhile, why is there a different briefing about Trump/Putin Bounty for the RethugniCONS and Ds?

If someone is two faced, like Moscow Mitch, I assume two masks are required?

The Senate majority leader then said that it’s up to each family, small business, employer and all levels of government to “apply common sense” to make this happen.

Isn’t that how we got where we are now, Mitch?

We need a new routine, a new rhythm, a new strategy, a new president, and a new drug, not necessarily in that order.

The mask won’t save you when all the Russia info comes out, Moscow Mitch.

He can’t help but politicize it, there is no “middle ground” with public health and safety. It’s called telling your constituents they are wrong and to wear the damn mask.

I will never understand why people think they have a God-given right to infect others.

Let the GOP jump on this band wagon. I don’t think defending Russian bounties as no big deal is going to play out the way they hope.
