Image
Donald Trump has tweeted that Joe Biden was not trusted by Barack Obama, claiming that Obama used to say: 'if you wanted to see something really screwed up, give it to Joe Biden to do.'  Trump, who has reportedly been angered by Obama's recent appearances on the campaign trail, tweeted on Friday night that the former president was in truth skeptical about Biden's candidacy. 'President Obama used to say that 'if you wanted to see something really screwed up, give it to Joe Biden to do.,' Trump tweeted. 'In fact, he tried to keep Joe from running, 'you don't have to do this Joe', and then wouldn't endorse him until long after the Primaries ended. 'Joe is lost!'.'

'I was introduced to Phil. We shook hands and it was awkward. I had a feeling maybe he knew,' Thompson said.

'Don't believe the polls': Michael Moore says Trump vote is 'always undercounted' and warns Democrats are being 'overconfident'

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is warning people not to be overconfident with Joe Biden's lead in the polls because President Trump voters are 'always being undercounted.' In 2016, left-wing Moore predicted that Trump would win the election, and back in August, warned he could win reelection because Trump's supporters were so enthusiastic.  On Thursday, Moore told Hill.TV's Rising hosts that Democrats and Biden supporters shouldn't take polls showing the former Vice President's lead in various states without a grain of salt.  Michael Moore warned that Trump voters are always being undercounted and that Biden supporters shouldn't rest easy because poll results show him in the lead 'Don’t believe these polls, first of all,' Moore said.  'Second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter’s very suspicious of the "Deep State" calling them and asking th

Eat Out to Help Out played a 'significant' role in accelerating Britain's second wave of coronavirus, a study has claimed. There was a sharp increase in clusters of Covid-19 infections a week after the Government scheme began, according to University of Warwick researchers.  They believe the initiative, which gave diners up to 50 per cent off meals out, was to blame for as many as 17 per cent of new infection clusters between August and early September - one in every six. The experts looked back at trends in infection rates before, during and after the scheme to work out how it affected the numbers of people testing positive. But experts questioned the findings of the study and said outbreaks it picked up could not be definitively linked to restaurants or eating out, pointing out that it also took into account cases in areas where outbreaks were declining.  Although people had to socially distance in restaurants where the deal was offered, the virus is known to spread more
