They also didn't ask for confirmation that those registering were over 18 so now illegally hold info on minors.

Not that it matters all that much, but Team Trump is now 0.5 for 2 in blocking tell-all books. They'd be 0 for 2, but Bolton is an idiot, and it seems likely that Uncle Sam will end up with all of his profits.

In other news, very bad opinion haver and poster child for arguing from hypotheticals, Ben Shapiro quipped that BLM, or Antifa, or some other bogeymen want to blow up Mount Rushmore. In short order, Governor Noem heroically proclaimed "Not on my watch!" and Trump scheduled a visit during Independence Day, complete with a fireworks display, despite a long-standing ban in the area due to fire hazard.

Ha! So Trump must be counting on his fireworks starting a fire at Mt Rushmore, so he can blame ANTIFA. Those Antifians! (whoever they are and wherever they're hiding)

I would suggest Operation Bagration was larger, but I take the point.

Amid fireworks at Mount Rushmore, Donald Trump makes it clear (again) that he does not intend to be a President for all Americans. Disgracing as it is, turning a festive event for the entire nation into a charging campaign speech, it also marks a clear statement as towards campaign strategy: Mobilize the base, and everone else fuck off. That is different to 2016, when two thirds of the large contingent of undecided voters, in their aversion-aversion conflict, broke for Trump and helped him over the hurdle in the important swing states.

That gives me some hope that Trumpt might actually lose the election. The strategy helps if you are an unpopular candidate against another unpopular cadidate and have two groups voting for you: The believers and the ones thinking you're the lesser evil. It does not work when your opposition is well-known, and popular, as Joe Biden seems to be right now. It would probably too late for Trump to eat chalk now, don a mask and vistit homeless shelters and Covid ICUs, but it's significant that he says,in the clearest terms possible, that he won't try.

My prediction is this will not be a wise decision. Remember March/April when he dabbled in a role of Donald-Who-Takes-the-Crisis-Head-On. His net favourability rating rose to -5 %, the best since his honeymoon days in February 2016.Had he followed through on it, appearing at crisis hotspots everywhere, encouraging people to tough it out in lockdown, who knows what popularity he might have gained, especially among the demographic that helped him win `16. He might have gained a leg on Biden, who couldn*t do more than send video messages from home. Alright, he tried to profit on that calling Biden Sleepy Joe, but in essence, he didn't do a lot more than Biden, only that his home videos were from the Rose Garden or the Oral Office.

I do hope he made a really, really, bad decision there.

His 8 minutes of off-topic rant at the SpaceX Crew Dragon launch in May was similarly cringeworthy (speech starts at 15:45min - his comments on 'what's happening in Minnesota' start at 16:20min, his comments on the protesters start at 18:00 min, his accusations about 'Antifa' start at 18:30, and his administration 'stopping mob violence cold' at 20:30min and again at 21:30min - and as he turns his head from side to side, he looks like he's reading cue cards. He finally got onto the launch at 24:00min)

I have no problem recognising the person on the right side of the photo, but maybe some help identifying the others?

Scheduling a campaign rally on Juneteenth and praising manifest destiny at Mt. Rushmore is so far into Poe territory, I'm speechless. He and his people can't possibly be that stupid, can they?

EDIT: Sorry, that's Hanlin's Razor, not Poe's Law.
POST-EDIT: Hanlon's Razor, even.
