Let’s hope Rudy doesn’t get whiplash from this sudden reversal of course. He’s got to give an important address, in his capacity as Minister of the False and Utterly Ridiculous, at a hotel in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in a little over an hour.

Evidently, Donald Trump woke up in a bad mood, or he wasn’t done tweeting yet, or something, because a few minutes after 11:00 a.m. ET, the trip to Gettysburg was canceled. (Maybe he got wind of the snarky Gettysburg/Lincoln cartoons making the rounds, ya spose?)

CNN:

The Trump campaign and Pennsylvania Senate Republicans announced plans for the Gettysburg event, a meeting of the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee, on Tuesday — casting it as an effort to expose “irregularities” in the 2020 election. The meeting is being organized by the Pennsylvania state Senate GOP, which is holding it at a hotel — not at the state Capitol.
Trump and Giuliani have made baseless allegations of fraud in the election and delved into conspiracy theories alleging a plot to rig the vote, all of which have been refuted by state and local election officials across the country as well as the top cybersecurity official at the Department of Homeland Security. Trump fired that official, Chris Krebs, after he co-signed a statement declaring the 2020 election “the most secure” in US history.
It was the first of three similar events the Trump campaign has scheduled in coordination with Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan. There’s no evidence that widespread voter fraud has taken place in any of those states despite frequent claims by Trump and his allies.
Whatever the reason for cancellation, you know it wasn’t because Trump was busy working. And it’s doubtful that he’s worried about coronavirus. Maybe somebody convinced him that he’d just look like a fool for going? Nahhh.

Sorry folks been busy all day. And can’t catch up till late. Good. Gettysburg is sacred to me. More than Pledge to Flag. Or standing up for anthem. Gettysburg is the blood and sacrifice so the pledge and flag could be honored. Revered by some but …

Perhaps one of the limited number of neurons in Trump’s NOT “very fine brain” fired, specifically the one with the image of a bug-eyed Rudy with dark streaks running down the sides of his head flashed. And Trump, who we’ve already heard is upset about Rudy and his other lawyers making him look bad had a lucid thought. Basically Trump had a moment of clarity and realized how STOOPID it would be for him to be in the same room with Rudy!

So sad, no joy in Trumpland. Why in the world would Chris Krebs be with Giuliani and company after he was fired for telling the truth?

Where did you get that? It’s not anywhere in this post.

Rudy did an interview last week with Epshteyn, who has tested positive for the virus.

Since when has looking (or sounding) like a fool ever stopped the dumpster? It’s probably more like he’s in a snit, or it was too much trouble, or yeah, golf!
