Finally, I think he will eviscerate our health care delivery system.”

–Donald Trump shill Louisiana Sen. John “Mealy” Kennedy, on Fox News’s Sean Hannity Show, July 7, 2020, in claiming that Joe Biden’s domestic policy calls for Americans to surrender their money and freedom to Washington. [We’ve been wondering where Kennedy was lately because he’s been do uncharacteristically silent as Trump lies, encourages racism, dismantles our intelligence agencies, destroys the environment, pisses off our allies, snuggles up to world tyrants, and enriches his family and friends—all while displaying utter incompetence in addressing the coronavirus pandemic.]

—Statement from the Department of Transportation after it was revealed that Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao’s family’s shipping company, Foremost Maritime, received between $350,000 and $1 million in stimulus money.
