    He's openly advocated for money printing. Openly

    Given the amount of communication that happens online like this, I'm not entirely surprised he asked her to bring more company. More light on interactions bah-a-a-ad.

    No opinion offered on the rest of whoever this candidate is. The story isn't interesting enough to make me care more about him, or her, or anyone else.

    or he thinks he can appeal to Trump voters by emulating Mike Pence.

    I would guess if people decide to metagame this instead of actually playing the game they say they are, they're outrage immunizing. Get desirable opponents to be mad at you about something a bit dippy so the loudest criticism of you is about something blunt, or at least it is diluted by such. I think that's playing the "what if" a little bit hard, but eh.

    If the Christian Right doesn’t abandon him after The D’ump is outed as a pedophile from a confession or plea bargain under oath, I will publicly forsake Christianity and protest whenever convenient. If the D’ump is reelected and not impeached by Christmas 2020, I will emigrate.

    Well, I've recently seen interviews on the telly where USian voters say ‘we know what he [i.e. Trump] is, but he is doing things’, without ever specifying what things he is doing or what they know he is, so you might be onto something.

    I'd rather you didn't. It's not God's fault that the Devil poses as a Christian -it's been an effectively good disguise throughout the ages.

    Good. If it's printed openly at least people will ask who is taking it. Unlike with the massive "printing" of debt to inflate asset price bubbles done since 2008.

    Trump is a present of the wealthy. Obama was even more so.

    I have "forsaken" plenty of churches, and strongly advise any Christian to do the same. The "Christian Right" is a whole lot about being "Right," and by my observation not about being Christian at all, so I'd certainly start with them no matter what they do about D'ump.

    I think Trump has lost already but the Democrats might snatch defeat from victory. By that I mean they nominate a pumpkin or lurch to far left and lose in states that matter in the mid west.

    Oh yes, I reject most of those silly non-for-anything-else-other-than-profit organisations, but my point is that there's a difference between breaking with them and breaking with the God they misrepresent.

    I thought that was my point, but I am willing to share.

    Yes, yes, I was just clarifying. We have *some people* here who are prone to misinterpreting posts into support for the GOP.

    Mnuchin has announced the United States is running out of cash quicker than expected. The Treasury was supposed to have enough to last until Congress returned in the fall. Now, it will run out in September, and so Congress needs to do something about the debt ceiling before it recesses next month.

    [AFAIK, the US is the only nation in the world that imposed a debt ceiling upon itself.]

    It doesn't though, because Congress routinely votes to exceed it.
