Well, that line of entertainment died quickly.
Last week, President Trump sent much of the media into hysterics when he asked if the national elections scheduled for November 3 should be postponed until they could be conducted securely and safely, and said that mail-in votes would cause widespread voter fraud.
The president has zero authority to do such a thing and did not claim that he would work toward that end, but lots of people got worked up over his comments and then spent the weekend wringing their hands and writing about the end of democracy.
Now White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has put an end to some of the speculation. During a television interview, Meadows said the United States will hold an election on Nov. 3 and that President Donald Trump was raising concerns about mail-in ballots when he floated the idea of delaying the U.S. vote.
“We’re going to hold an election on November 3 and the president is going to win.”
Now the mainstream media will have to find something else to focus on. Given his history, chances are that President Trump will provide them with new fodder this week.
