#EndorseThis: Don Jr. May Need That Drug Test His Daddy Urged For Biden

You've probably heard about Donald Trump's claim that his Democratic rival got "a big fat se onhot in the ass" before delivering a nearly perfect performance on a recently televised town hall. Or his more recent demand that Joe Biden get a "drug test" before their debate on Tuesday night. Having spent months lowering expectations for Biden, the Trumps are now busily defaming him as a junkie.

But that particular slur backfired spectacularly over the weekend when the Trump campaign posted a bizarre video of Don Jr. -- seemingly in a condition that called for rehab services. As his father might put it, "many people are saying" that the presidential spud looked and sounded like someone abusing a controlled substance. (His slurred message was disturbed too, something about an "army of able-bodied men and women" to intimidate voters).

It's both funny and sad to watch Don Jr. decompensate on Twitter. (More funny, though.)

Schiff added that the panel had taken action voluntarily in order to "accelerate resolution" of the matter.

But if former Vice President Joe Biden defeats President Donald Trump this November, he will no longer be a sitting president after Biden is inaugurated in January 2021. And according to a lengthy piece by journalist Jason Zengerle for the New York Times, Donald Trump, Jr. is worried about the possibility of members of his family facing criminal prosecutions if the president loses to Biden.

On Crowded GOP Convention Schedule, Many Speakers Named Trump

Reprinted with permission from DailyKos

In what has to be a last-ditch attempt to appear prepared for the Republican National Convention, President Donald Trump's campaign released its complete list of more than 70 speakers for the convention Sunday. On it, Trump's relatives and the likes of staffers including Kellyanne Conway are described as "honorable." It's at least nice to know convention organizers aren't disillusioning themselves into thinking the president fits that title.
