According to Fort Lauderdale Police Department Sgt. DeAnna Greenlaw, Fort Lauderdale police officers responded to Parscale's residence "in reference to an armed male attempting suicide." Officers later identified him to CNN as Bradley Parscale and said his wife had called the police.

"When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with the armed subject's wife, who advised her husband was armed and had access to multiple firearms inside the residence and was threatening to harm himself," Greenlaw told CNN in a statement. The officers determined the only person inside the home was the adult male.

What we do know is that beginning in the late 2000s, no one would lend to Donald Trump. His history of bankruptcies, combined with whatever horrors were on his personal and organizational financial statements, clearly made every bank run the other direction. Every bank but one, that is: Deutsche Bank. Donald Trump’s history with Deutsche Bank has always merited special scrutiny, but never more than now. The head honchos at Deutsche would have known just how desperate Trump’s financial position was. But they lent to him anyway. Why? It certainly looks even more ominous that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s son was managing the real estate division at Deutsche that lent to Trump, and that Justice Kennedy unexpectedly retired to ensure Trump could seat his replacement. And it looks triply suspicious that Deutsche Bank has been fined and sanctioned over multiple money laundering scandals, including $20 billion from Russian kleptocrats.

“Vice President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words. If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it,” Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, said in a Sunday statement to Politico. “We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200K Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop COVID-19.”

A Finance Committee aide told Talking Points Memo that finding new evidence against the Trump administration "was certainly not Republicans' goal."

"While Republicans' Ukraine investigation showed Vice President Biden did nothing wrong," the aide said, "it succeeded in implicating former Secretary Perry in a corrupt scheme to pressure the Ukrainian government to change the board of Naftogaz."

This Presidential Debate drinking game could land you in the hospital, or the morgue, but give it a go tonight: Every time Joe Biden sounds like he's just blithering, take a shot of Jamison's or Maker's Mark.

Alternatively, you can drink a shot of disinfectant every time Trump claims he's done a wonderful job combatting COVID... or that he pays millions of dollars in income taxes... or that Mexico is going to pay for the wall...

It seems to me Trump has done a good job with COVID. How you might ask? Think how much worse it would have been under a Biden presidency: 1) He said he would never have instituted a travel ban, calling it xenophobic and bigoted; 2) we would be further behind in testing for a vaccine because a Democratic-ran administration would never have rolled back any regulations to streamline testing; 3) both Governor Cuomo and Governor Newsom said that Trump gave them "everything we asked for" and praised his response to the virus; 4) Trump talked about it in the SOTU address, which Nancy Pelosi tore up claiming "...everything he said was a lie"; 5) Pelosi and De Blasio both, after the SOTU, encouraged people to gather for Chinese New Year, causing super spreader situations. And on it goes. No Democrats gave anything that ever remotely addressed the issue, never issued suggestions, and even encouraged people to tune out of the daily briefings with Drs. Fauci and Brix. So you lying hypocrites should just go and inject bleach (something else Trump never said) and recognize your opinions are so tainted as to be ignored by any serious thinking person.

You are straight up ignorant

And a crybaby, you’re a weird crybaby dude.

I think you need a case of depends and a dozen pacifiers. A dozen pacifiers because big babies tend to lose them and it’s just easier to pop a new pacifier in their crying mouths than look for the lost one. What’s your address again? I’ll get some mailed out today.

It's easy for a fool to create an argument by extrapolating a hypothetical past, isn't it?

Secondly, I believe Mr. Obama's administration put together an entire pandemic playbook for his successor. I seem to recall he was a Democrat. But of course that doesn't fit your inept narrative.
Make it, enjoy it, let it go.

Here's the thing: If trump could be elected legitimately in 2020, there would be no riots and America's shit turned upside down according to the Kremlin plan, no excuse to institute martial law, suspend elections, overturn the American democratic system. Trump has GOT to lose miserably, then claim it was stolen, so the "2nd amendment people" whose dicks have been getting sucked by the GOP for years, hoping they will turn into a deniable paramilitary force, which is what you will witness in a few short months. Keep your heads down.

First of all, his tax returns, publicized by the New York Times since Sunday, have taken a back seat to his support for the white supremacist gang the Proud Boys and his attacks on a peaceful election.

Second, coronavirus news is not getting the airtime it should. More than a million people around the world have died of Covid-19, including more than 205,000 Americans. Florida is seeing a surge in new cases since Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order allowing restaurants and bars to reopen. The Midwest is also in a surge, with record numbers of new cases in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Kansas. Wisconsin hospitals are nearing capacity and South Dakota has the highest rate of spread in the country. Experts worry about a dramatic rise in cases as cold weather settles in.

Third, Brad Parscale, Trump’s former campaign manager, left the Trump campaign today after his involuntary hospitalization for psychiatric evaluation over the weekend after threats to self-harm. He cited his need “to focus on my family and get help dealing with the overwhelming stress.” Parscale knows the secrets of the Trump campaign since the heady days of 2016, and the family is reportedly worried he will begin to cooperate with law enforcement about possible campaign finance violations. Campaign staff is scrubbing his presence from the campaign's website.

These three big stories are on the back burner because last night Trump told white supremacist thugs to “Stand Back and Stand By” before saying that “somebody's got to do something about antifa and the left," a statement observers note sounds much like a precursor to calling them to action against those he perceives to be enemies.

He also called for “poll watchers” to prevent fraudulent ballots and warned that Democrats are going to steal the election from him. He said he expects the election results will take “months” as the campaign challenges mail-in ballots, and that he hopes the case will end up in the Supreme Court.

Today, it feels like Trump’s embrace of white supremacist gangs and his open declaration that he is planning an assault on our democratic process was a turning point for the campaign, and for the nation.

The president reportedly is happy with the way the evening went, believing his supporters love to see him go on the attack. Today he has complained that he “was debating two people last night,” but that he had won and it was “fun.”
