What a day.
In a way, Mike Pence’s plane skidding off the runway this evening is a metaphor for the entire trump campaign.
I am glad everyone is safe, though. It could have been a very tragic situation.
Anyway, speaking of trump, apparently some of his operatives have been busy leading up to this election. Sadly, instead of leading a get out the vote campaign; they have been working hard to suppress it.
A senior official admitted that the campaign has “three major voter suppression operations under way,” according to a report from Bloomberg, which focused on the campaign’s “Project Alamo,” a digital database and get-out-the-vote foundation.
A major part of “Project Alamo” is that it’s not a get-out-the-vote operation, though. It’s quite the opposite.
Instead of making sure that Trump supporters get to the polls — there aren’t many out there, the team realizes, noting that their internal polling is similar to that of FiveThirtyEight, which has Trump losing by a landslide — Alamo is devoted to keeping as many people as they can from the polls.
To discourage white liberals from voting for Clinton, the campaign has been mentioning some of the controversies connected to the hacked emails being published by WikiLeaks from the account of her campaign chairman, John Podesta.” [Source]
And lets not forget, in order to discourage black voter turnout, trump is running ads on black radio and on facebook which focuses on Hillary Clinton calling black kids “super predators” back in the day.
I gotta give it to the trump man, he is pulling out all the stops.
Then there is the story that broke today about our friend Clarence Thomas. Somewhere in America Anita Hill is saying I told you so.
