And in breaking news, presidential candidate Joe Biden finally made his VP decision, choosing Sen. Kamala Harris to be his running mate. But how will the Left respond to this news?

Over the weekend, President Trump bypassed Congress and signed an economic relief order.

Former mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown tells Kamala Harris she needs to turn down the VP offer if Biden asks. Rioters and looters attacked the city of Chicago over the weekend, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot asks President Trump for resources, but ONLY under her exact specifications.

Twitter temporarily suspended Trump's campaign account because of a video that was posted that claimed children are ALMOST immune from COVID-19. Was this just an excuse to silence the Trump campaign? A New York AG wants to dissolve the NRA. And presidential candidate Joe Biden says Americans should not have access to assault weapons, to which the NRA responded, "Come and take it!" Lastly, President Trump says it would be a good idea to move up the debates due to early mail-in voting, but would Biden actually go for that? Today's Sponsor: Tired of losing your hair?

The Lebanese prime minister said that ammonium nitrate caused the major explosion in Beirut. But the question is, why were there thousands of pounds of ammonium nitrate just sitting in a warehouse in the first place? NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio says he's allowed to skip the permit process to paint BLM murals on NYC streets, but pro-Trump groups are not? They still have to apply for permits. Sounds fair. Billionaire Oprah Winfrey says there's a caste system in America and white people are at the TOP with their white privilege. In a new interview, presidential candidate Joe Biden doesn't handle it well when asked if he has taken a cognitive test—"Come on, man!" Lastly, protesters sue the city of Seattle because they needed to purchase "expensive" gear in order to protest safely. Yes, you read that correctly.

President Trump says in a heated interview that it could take months to get the final results of the election if we rely on mail-in voting. A federal judge ruled that mail-in votes that were postmarked past the due day or may not have been postmarked at all MUST be counted. Neel Kashkari, president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank, says that all we have to do is a "hard shut down" of the country for a month and that will fix the coronavirus spread. Didn't we try that already!? The Revolutionary Communist Party has just endorsed Joe Biden for president because "he is not Trump." Excellent endorsement. Lastly, multiple explosions occurred in Beirut, Lebanon, leaving many people confused as to what could actually cause such a huge blast.

President Trump is considering "unilateral" action in COVID-19 relief as House Democrats and Senate Republicans continue to disagree. Trump said it's time to ban Tik Tok, causing a wave of panic among the younger generation. But it's OK because Microsoft says they'll buy it from China. Will the deal go through? Chaos continues in Portland despite the federal officers leaving. Who would have thought? State Rep. LaShawn K.

Social media is going crazy after Ghislaine Maxwell's 2015 court documents were released. Once again, names like Prince Andrew, Alan Dershowitz and former President Bill Clinton were mentioned going to the late Jeffrey Epstein's private island. When is the truth going to come out and when is the media going to report on this? Rep. Jim Jordan questioned Dr. Fauci about gatherings and if protests increase the spread of COVID-19. Was Jordan being unfair to Dr. Fauci? During the eulogy for John Lewis, former President Obama decided to use the platform to compare President Trump's use of federal agents to George Wallace’s segregation tactics. U.S. Attorney Williams is upset toward the MSM for not condemning the riots as criminal violence. When is the MSM going to wake up and report the truth?

The media reports that the GDP plummeted 32.9%, but is this an effort to sensationalize a headline? President Trump warns that fraudulent voting will occur if people are forced to do mail-in ballots and suggests we delay the election instead. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is now requiring masks on the House floor and will remove anyone who doesn't comply. And Dr. Fauci says if people wanted to REALLY be safe, they should also wear goggles in addition to their masks. At what point will we all be required to wear full hazmat suits to go to the grocery store? Owners of a bed and breakfast were forced to remove a flag from their front door because people were offended by their Confederate flag. The only problem? It's a Norwegian flag!

The White House struck a deal with Oregon that the federal officers will be withdrawn, but ONLY if Portland can step up and put an end to the violence themselves. Can they do it? Unlikely. Politico releases an article announcing presidential candidate Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris to be his VP. The only problem? That never happened. Oops! Teachers in D.C. lined up body bags in front of their school system offices in protest against returning to work during the coronavirus. Well, that's one way to get your point across. And lastly, the NFL continues to be "woke" by writing social justice messages on the end zones of the fields. Good job, NFL. You ended racism.

A man was fatally shot during a Black Lives Matter protest in Austin, Texas, over the weekend as violence continues to erupt across the country. But Democrat House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler says that all of the Antifa violence we're hearing about in Portland is a "myth." The only problem is that we have videos and police reports that say otherwise. In Miami, police dressed in street clothes are starting to fine citizens if they aren't wearing their masks correctly, and a woman in San Diego maces a couple picnicking in a park because they weren't wearing masks at all ... while eating.

Hollywood continues to demand defunding the police and investing in black talent. Actor Michael B. Jordan is demanding that Hollywood executives stop funding police unions and hire independent security firms. Do Americans look up to celebrities enough to care? The Left continues to use children, and this time they are encouraging kids to say “F-ck the police.” Dr. Fauci threw the first pitch of the MLB season and missed the mark by a long shot.

President Trump tells Chicago that "help is on the way" as he sends federal agents to help lower the crime rate, but liberal mayors across the country say his help is not welcome. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler tries to protest with citizens of Portland, but it only ends with getting teargassed and having items thrown at him. What exactly did he expect? The former Washington Redskins have announced their new temporary name for the 2020 season, and it is probably the most boring name to ever exist in NFL history. And lastly, President Trump points out that it's a lose/lose situation if he takes the vaccine first or last. Either way, someone will criticize him!

The McCloskeys, a St. Louis couple who held guns as they defended their home while BLM rioters went through their neighborhood, now have charges filed against them. Will the court ignore the Castle Doctrine that gives them the right to defend their home? Presidential candidate Joe Biden says he has four Black women in the running to be his VP. Is that all you know about them, Joe? A Florida teachers union is suing the state over reopening schools in August.

Sen. Chuck Schumer releases a plan to end racism through his Economic Justice Act. It'll only cost $350 BILLION! The National Museum of African American History released a chart on white culture, and it is ironically VERY racist toward black people. Teen Vogue now thinks there's systemic racism in sleeping. At this point, it might be easier to get a list of things that are not considered systemic racism. In election news, President Trump is getting ahead in the polls, but is it actually better to be the underdog? Lastly, Georgia Gov. Kemp says there will be no mask mandates. Will this last?
