Isn't it funny how political figures can tell people not to have Thanksgiving or Christmas and close down eating places but yet the Chiefs are out there playing a contact sport with no mask and sweat pouring off of them and breathing hard, and that's somehow O.K. Talk about virus spreaders. And they bash this country when they are protected by the GOV. and no one else is. What a bunch of low life scum.

There's no "Trump standoff with Congress", there's only the venom of a narcissistic Loser doing as much harm as he can to punish the American People.

25 days till "El Loser" is gone, impeached, irrelevant, disgraced and probably indicted. Also ignored except as a laughingstock as he continues to throw his spiteful childish tantrums and embarrass the Country.

7:39 - Congress wants to send $600 checks to the American People. Trump wants to raise that to $2000. How do you figure that constitutes "doing harm to the American People?"

@9:15, The House passed a $1,200 relief bill back in May, Trump and the Republican Senate held it up until now. Trump said over and over that nothing was necessary.

Suddenly the Senate Republicans come up with a $600 proposal, "knowing" the Democrats would hold out for $1,200, but insteqd they got played, and the Dems signed on for the lower amount, knowing they could pass more later, but trying to get something into the hands of the People now.

Trump said he would not sign it, then refused to sign it when it passed, and then said he'd sign it if it included a $2,000 amount, knowing that would send it back to Congress and would prevent the $600 checks going out.

THAT's where the harm to the American People comes about, he's playing games to punish us for dumping his ass.

Oh, and how damned short do you think our memories are, Pal?
We can remember all the shit you Republicans have been playing with this Relief Bill since last May!

9:35, the Pelosi bill was chock full of pork that had nothing to do with Covid relief and everything to do with bailing out mismanaged Democrat ruled cities and states. The Senate indicated it would agree to the Covid relief but not to the pork. Pelosi refused to compromise until after Biden was safely elected. She clearly put her party ahead of the needs of the people.

What you think is your memory is really just your imagination.
