    Senator Ed Markey was on MSNBC via Skype. He is on the Congressional Oversight Committee and spoke about the $500 billion dollar economic crisis package that the Senate has been going back and forth with between the republicans and democrats. I am quoting him verbatim here:

    "When Senators got the bill package sent over by the republicans on Saturday, there was no transparency, the Oversight Committee wouldn't know who got the billions of dollars for six months. There was NO limits on stock buy backs, nothing about NO executive compensation, NO worker retention provisions. It came over as something that would go over to Donald Trump in the White House and then he could just sit there with 500 billion dollars and do whatever the hell he wanted to do with it. The Senator Oversight would have no knowledge of what he would do with it for six months. That's why the democrats voted 'no' on Sunday, that's why they voted 'no' on Monday, it was to force the republicans back to the table so they could put safeguards around this program in addition to getting things they were fighting for like more unemployment insurance, sick leave and other issues. This was a disgrace, a scandal waiting to happen if Donald Trump had 500 billion dollars to dispense with no oversight whatsoever and we will have an Inspector General that will be a part of this as well."

    Incidentally; Donald Trump will also compensate himself for the losses in his business empire. We can be certain of that.

    'Javanka' too. They all got super wealthy through Trump's China and Saudi Arabia connections.

    So, you "believe without evidence". Nice!

    ALL DUE CREDIT: In the Same Poll Where Trump Triumphs on COVID-19 Response, the Media Come In Dead Last.

    President Trump scored among his best approval ratings ever in the latest Gallup poll on his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the fourth poll in which Trump has excelled and that is remarkable considering the media anvil sitting on his head.

    The media have done even worse in the poll. And why wouldn't they? They:
    And what of the media's approval rating during this National Emergency? According to the same Gallup poll, the media have not acquitted themselves well, coming in last.

    Those that disapprove of the President likely share your views that you promote without evidence.

    But it takes all kinds, so thanks for sharing them!

    You don't need evidence to have an opinion.

    I'm a staunch supporter of your right to opinions without evidential support as a fundamental human right.

    Thats why Trump became president. To get rich :) You should look at where the Clintons or Obamas finances were before and after they left the WH?
