david J.- those of us who do not have enough comedy in our lives, will delight in the Trumpian morass of half-truths and out right lies that Zero Hedge serves up.

Thanks for the laughs.

From Wikipedia: Zero Hedge or ZeroHedge is a far-right libertarian financial blog, presenting staff-written articles and aggregating news and opinions from external sources. Zero Hedge... is bearish in its investment outlook and analysis...

Zero Hedge expanded into non-financial analysis,including conspiracy theories and fringe rhetoric that has been associated with the US radical right and a pro-Russian bias.

Well thank President Trump that the vaccines will start to be administered in December. A remarkable leadership achievement, one of many.

Mark Stahl

Now he should respectfully acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory and allow the transition to start.

Robert Bartlett

Perhaps that will happen soon. But are you seriously suggesting that Joe Biden is capable of doing the job of President day one?

Angel Ortiz

Biden is certainly more capable than Donald. This current administration has been at helm for almost 4 years and has nothing to show for it. Donald has been incompetent since day 1. He never showed respect for the Office the President, or the American people.

Robert Bartlett- Perhaps we should poll Republican Senators as who is up to the job.

Journalist Carl Bernstein: The 21 GOP Senators who have privately ‘repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump’are: Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), Sen. Rick Scott (Fla.), and Senate Majority Whip John Thune (S.D.). The other 18 GOP senators are Rob Portman (Ohio), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Ben Sasse (Neb.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Mitt Romney (Utah), Mike Braun (Ind.), Todd Young (Ind.), Tim Scott (S.D.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Richard Burr (N.C.), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Martha McSally (Ariz.), Jerry Moran (Kansas), Pat Roberts (Kansas), and Richard Shelby (Ala.).
