Georgia state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick faced a wave of ridicule late Thursday after she appeared to confuse President Trump’s “coyotes” remark during the presidential debate with coyotes the animals. During Thursday’s final debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden in Nashville, Mr. Trump addressed his now-defunct border separation policy, saying “children are brought here by coyotes and lots of bad people, cartels, and they’re brought here and it’s easy to use them to get into our country.” Ms. Kendrick, a Democrat, appeared unaware that the term “coyote” also means a person who smuggles illegal immigrants across the southern U.S. border.

Come on, man, she's a US Congresswoman of Color, not a zoologist.

US Rep Dar’shun Kendrick, D-GA: “Did @realDonaldTrump just say 545 kids they can’t find their parents for came over through ‘cartels and coyotes’?!” “How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?! Lord—stop talking. #FinalDebate”

You know how baseball players have certain songs that play when they go to the plate to bat? Legislators should have that too. And for Dar'shun Kendrick that song should be "Thick as a Brick" by Jethro Tull. Yeah...you haven't heard THAT one in awhile, have you?

Why are all of you writing to say that Ms. Kendrick is stupid? She happens to be right. It is true that coyotes of the canine variety carry people over the border. This is how some young illegal aliens or “Dreamers” become separated from their parents. During the winter months coyotes grow thick fur. Sometimes the weight of the fur combined with the weight of the child will cause the U.S.-Mexico border to overturn or “flip”. When this happened in 2008-2016 the Obama administration built kennels for rescued coyotes to recover but the Border Patrol thought the money should have been spent on humans and so they put children in the cages. Now the Trump administration is building a wall that is so heavy that coyotes and children are trapped under the border with no one coming to their rescue. Trump’s attitude is “who cares about dogs and kids?” and that’s why the poor illegals can’t get in the country illegally as easily as they used to so they aren’t coming as much anymore. If they stop coming this is bad because woke scolds can’t take to the streets to pretend they care by burning a shoe store or bakery.

She has been triggered! I remember these nuggets of hilarity from the past: -a NYC official resigned after he used the word niggardly to describe the funding practices of the city dept. he worked for. A black person also on the same board complained. -another official resigned after using the term 'black hole' to describe a waste of funds being applied to a program that showed no tangible results despite significant funds allocated. A black official remarked 'why not call it a white hole'? There is no fixing stupid.

Their parents are still in their original countries. This is criminal for these children. They were raped, not fed, treated worse than animals, etc. The moron liberals in this country think that their parents are here and brought them to this country.....think again. My heart goes out to these children. Knowing President Trump, they are being protected, well fed, schooled, etc.

The start of President Donald Trump’s rally was still hours away when it became clear his campaign would not keep its promise. In the days leading up to the Sept. 30 event in Duluth, Minn., local officials had privately pressed the campaign to abide by state public health guidelines aimed at slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus, documents show. In response, the campaign signed an agreement pledging to follow those rules, limiting attendance to 250 people.(Snip) Held two days before Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19, the rally was attended by more than 2,500 people, airport officials estimated.

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court ruled Friday that election officials must accept mail-in ballots even if the signatures on them don’t match those on file for a voter. The justices said nothing in the state’s laws required signatures to be verified, so if election officials are satisfied with the vote save for the signature, they cannot reject it.(Snip) President Trump’s campaign had challenged the state over the issue. Signature matching is considered a key check in many states that run elections through the mail, and election officials are trained in how to spot matches and to question signatures that don’t appear to match.

That’s not the big news. The big news is that the same outlet claims that (a) Communist China owns Joe Biden; (b) Joe Biden sold out CIA assets in China who were then executed or imprisoned; and (c) GTV has millions of images showing other presumably influential people in comprising positions.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden holds a slight lead in Texas over President Donald Trump among likely voters in Texas, according to a poll released Sunday by the Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler. The poll showed Biden with the support of 48 percent of likely voters, compared with 45 percent for Trump. The results represent a shift from the same poll in September, when Trump led by 2 percentage points. One difference from September is that Biden has expanded his lead among Hispanic voters from 30 percentage points to 48.

If the election were held today, Joe Biden would probably win. But there are strong signs that the race is much, much closer than you’d think from the news coverage. Donald Trump has a real shot at being reelected. First, the president is actually more popular now than on the day he was elected. Yes, that’s right. His personal favorability rating around election day in 2016 was 37.5%. Now, it is 43.2%. There are, in fact, hundreds of thousands of Americans (if not millions) who have grown fonder of Trump. We all know it’s not about the popular vote so let’s disregard nationwide polls that have Biden ahead by double digits.
