Well. That was interesting.

The election happened on Tuesday and now it’s Friday night. Between then and now, Democrats went from despairing over the loss of Florida and the Senate to realising they might actually win the White House. And then realising they were definitely going to win the White…


A farewell

I wanted this project to have some sort of conclusion, so we’ll go with this for now. Today it’s Christmas in America and the day after Christmas in New Zealand. Trump lost across the board, and is melting down just like we knew he would. The Senate races in Georgia…


The last debate between Trump and Biden just ended. Trump actually managed to answer questions without too much interrupting. To that end, he probably helped his case a bit. Is it enough to matter? We’ll see.

Well, inauguration day is in 90 days. Meaning this post will hit the internet…


It’s October 22. How do things feel?

Well, Rudy Guliani is about to be featured in the new Borat movie, which apparently comes out tomorrow. I doubt we’ll remember it in 90 days, but maybe.

Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal is going through some interesting iterations. First everyone shut it down…


This morning, Trump threw an event at the White House. It was his first public event like this since he came down with Covid over a week ago, and he only spoke for 18 minutes. Despite officials saying the event would last 30.

It was also reported that 2000 were…


Oops, I forgot to write the last week of updates. So here’s pretty much what happened in the last six days:

  • Trump went to the hospital
  • More people fell ill
  • Trump’s post-debate polling collapsed (down 14 and 16 in two outlier polls)
  • Trump came out of the hospital too early…

Trump has been hospitalised.

Lots of other people have been infected too. Senators Lee and Tillis, Kellyanne Conway, his campaign manager, some others I can’t remember right now. It’s been a very intense day.

He was able to walk to the helicopter himself, and he sent out a video beforehand explaining what was happening. His doctors have been treating him and they say he’ll be at the hospital for a few days.

The most interesting detail in a very interesting day is the fact that the Senate vote count might be at risk. If too many senators fall ill, they can’t be present to vote. I still expect them to find a way, but this is definitely a curveball.

That Rose Garden meeting is turning into a super-spreader event. A lot more people are probably about to fall ill. Crazy times.


Trump has Covid.

There were a lot of other things going on today, probably, but since the news came in about three hours ago, it’s hard to think about anything else.

Trump’s polls got worse. According to one, he’s even losing in Georgia now, which is insane. That’s like a…


[A quick note about timing: I’m writing this on September 29, US-time. But technically it’s September 30, 2020 where I live in New Zealand.]

The big news today is going to be Joe Biden’s first debate with Donald Trump. For about a year, the Bernie Sanders faithful pointed to this…


Holy cow.

So the first presidential debate happened, and it’s been universally condemned. It’s not hard to imagine it going down in history as a historic blunder, one taught in classes as what not to do. …

90 Days Ago Trump

I analyze the Trump presidency, then share the essays 90 days later, like a time capsule.
