TweetDeck : Kayleigh McEnany has suddenly been appearing from the Trump campaign HQ on TV as both a White House press secretary and a campaign senior adviser, encapsulating the ignoring of the Hatch Act and total blurring of lines in the administration nytimes.com/live/2020/10/2…

TweetDeck : President Trump’s campaign is pushing to effectively suppress mail-in votes in Pennsylvania by:
— Stopping the processing of absentee votes before Election Day
— Limiting how late mail-in ballots can be accepted
— Intimidating those trying to vote early

TweetDeck : Tucker Carlson's interview with Tony Bobulinski was seen by 7.6 million people last night on Fox News.

The Voice aired at the same time and got 7.8 million.

It's unusual for a cable talk-show to rival a major reality TV hit.

TweetDeck : ANONYMOUS REVEALED -- Miles Taylor, the former chief of staff at DHS, told me today that he is the anonymous author of an The New York Times op-ed and the book "A Warning" that roiled Washington 2 years ago and sparked a hunt for his identity nytimes.com/2020/10/28/us/…

TweetDeck : NEW: Previously un-released documents show the government has paid $2.5 million to @realdonaldtrump's businesses. Far more than we knew.

Trump Org charged $7,700 for a dinner, $6,000 for floral arrangements…and $3 for POTUS’s own glass of water.


TweetDeck : “Our current president, he whines that ‘60 Minutes’ is too tough. You think he’s gonna stand up to dictators? He thinks Lesley Stahl’s a bully” — Obama in Orlando.

TweetDeck : Trump's 60 MINUTES interview got the show's biggest rating since Stormy Daniels in 2018.

Also the biggest viewership of any program on TV in all of 2020 since the Oscars (excluding sports and the debates)

TweetDeck : If Trump wanted people to disregard the 60 MINUTES interview, his strategy was a weird one.

17 MILLION viewers last night, biggest TV audience for a non-sport/non-debate telecast since the Oscars in February.
