Texas reports 313 new deaths.
Louie Gohmert tested positive for Covid19 and then went on to tell his staff IN PERSON that he had the extremely contagious disease which you can catch just by talking to someone in person.
Gohmert told staffers IN PERSON in Rayburn that he had Covid.
More from inside Gohmert’s office coming in Playbook PM
Lot of frustration about the Texas Republican.

And of course, Congressman Covid will be taking advice from the alien dna/demon semen doctor. What a time to be alive.
Man in Texas believes covid is a Democratic host. Throws party for family. 14 members end up sick and another one dies from covid. As somebody who has avoided all unnecessary human contact since early March, fuck these idiots. Make stupid choices, win stupid consequences. What pisses me off about these idiots is how many people they are infecting who may have no choice about interacting with them. From the grocery clerks to the medical staff where a good deal of these party revelers ended up, or any other people who are just doing their job and have to risk their health dealing with these idiots who are not taking this pandemic seriously.
1,444 more dead Americans from covid today. We’ll be over 154,000 total sometime today. I don’t know how much the daily death toll would need to rise before the GOP decided to take a pause on their current course, or when Democrats would do more than just let the GOP keep fucking up. 3,000 a day? 5K?
You know how McConnell is dragging his feet about unemployment insurance benefits? Thursday’s numbers are in:

The US Economy contracted by 33% in the 2nd Quarter. This is the worst plunge ever recorded which goes back to 1947. So, another thing to add to Trump’s resume.
Trump is now tweeting that the election should be delayed because it’s not safe to vote. Weird how he thinks it’s perfectly fine to open up schools but let’s delay the election, which already has safeguards in place (mail-in voting), when he is getting crushed in the polls.
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???
