How does a president get us into a 1918 pandemic, 1930s depression, and 1968 race riot all in 6 months? Answer: with no plans and no clue… Chad Wolf huffs and puffs, but blows an opportunity to not be called a fascist tool for Trump.
It is amateur hour with Trump trying anything to develop fear of something, something in the suburban and independent voters he needs for re-election. Deploying 75,000 feds for protection squad duty rather than COVID contact tracing, will doom Trump.

But oddly, Ken Cuccinelli thinks Portland Mayor Wheeler is a #Menshevik, making the protesters into Bolsheviks and law enforcement the socialists in that analogy.

Reminder: Chad Wolf isn't the Senate-confirmed DHS secretary. Nor is Cuccinelli the Senate-confirmed deputy
Neither have even been nominated for these jobs. Like other acting officials, they're accountable only to Trump
So, if we're talking about law and order, let's start here

Pretty obvious Portland was chosen to escalate photo-op repression because interracial violence is a key to re-election if only a mostly peaceful populace buys the lie.
in other words, they aren't there to calm things down

NEW: @SenJeffMerkley and I are calling on Congressional leaders to prohibit DHS and DOJ from using taxpayer dollars to infringe on Americans’ constitutional rights. Congress must stop Donald Trump from deploying his fascist tactics around the country. This is the way to do it. pic.twitter.com/zIt3MWzDJi

#GestapoTrump thugs pepper spraying a nurse in scrubs at the Seattle protests is cowardly and grotesque.
These are our essential, front-line workers against COVID-19.

As Hurricane Hanna makes landfall, Jill and I are sending our prayers to the people of South Texas. We must ensure that affected residents get the support they need — and get it quickly. If you are in an impacted region, please heed the advice of local officials and seek shelter.
