Trump's final ad buy shows just how broke his campaign really is

On a call Monday, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien revealed the campaign’s total ad buy for the last two weeks of the presidential race would be a whopping a paltry $55 million ... split between no fewer than 11 states. Um, just wow. And that's not only the Trump campaign, it represents coordinated spending with the Republican National Committee (RNC) too. Far from being a muscular way to close out the race, it feels more like a cry for help. By comparison, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said last week that she still anticipates raising another $234 million through the election. If you’ve donated to the Biden-Harris ticket, this is a time to feel very good about every penny spent. Why not kick in another $2 right now and feel even better?

As his staff contemplates defeat, Trump closes his campaign out with spite and bitterness

In the last weeks of the campaign, Donald Trump is collapsing in on himself. That's the story his campaign and White House team itself seems to want to push in the scurry to avoid blame themselves. On Sunday, a New York Times piece reported on gloom, grievance, and «backbiting» among Trump's staff as his reelection prospects dim, but more of note is the blame getting directed at the big orange hateburper himself.

'They took my integrity': Iraqis who helped U.S. military stranded by Trump's anti-refugee policies

'They took my integrity': Iraqis who helped U.S. military stranded by Trump's anti-refugee policies

White House aide and noted white supremacist Stephen Miller’s immoral wish to block as many refugees from the U.S. as possible hasn’t even spared refugees who’ve risked their own lives to assist U.S. military overseas. The New York Times reports that of the 4,000 slots reserved for Iraqis who’ve assisted U.S. military, only 161 were filled in the last fiscal year.  “Between endless red tape, slashed refugee admissions, and new ‘extreme vetting’ measures, the U.S. has made it all but impossible for its wartime partners to get the safe passage they were promised,” tweeted The International Refugee Assistance Project. “And the stakes couldn't be higher for those left behind.”
