    I've just watched this:

    Blatant corruption... My US cousin told me the other day that Trump is desperate to win as he knows he (& some of his family) will be prosecuted and jailed once he is no longer President.

    It is appalling - but I can't help feeling that it is not doing him any good with the electorate.

    Still two months to go but it's not looking good for him - all he basically can do is try and suppress voting.

    Where's the public outcry? The demonstrations? Anything!

    He's done so much already with impunity...

    Complaining is not action. He's ignoring requests for meetings. Montana is Democrat-run, MSNBC is a left-leaning station. Despite the announcer reporting that nationwide it won't be going ahead, enough damage will have been done already or they wouldn't just be rolling over.
    If only he would just die.

    It's an absolute debacle. It goes beyond the vote situation, it's killing small businesses that sell online - my friends in the US are despairing.

    Alot of my friends in the US are writing and phoning relevant officials. Many feel they are banging their heads against a wall.

    "Calls attention" by neutrally describing how posting depots are being disabled by having their equipment removed or otherwise banjaxed.

    And yet the title of the video describes her as "outspoken".

    Widespread and ingrained oppression and silencing in the US.

    Representative Eric Swalwell has publicly called for a presidential crimes commission to investigate all crimes by Donald Trump and his criminal associates and enablers if/when Trump loses to Biden - all suspected crimes by Trump and his associates and family members must be presented to a grand jury. Bill Barr (current US Attorney General) refuses to investigate crime and corruption by members of the Trump administration.

    This attempted manipulation of the election will cost him.

    He's a goner - I don't think it will even be close. He will make a lot of trouble and noise but he will lose.

    I think what really frightens him is the legal battles he will have after he's no longer president.

    They will go on for years.

    I bet Melania files for divorce the second he loses.
