The microphones, lecterns and folders he uses are wiped down in the moments before his arrival. News reporters covering the campaign have their temperature taken. People he meets are scanned in advance with thermometer wands and guests at his events are cordoned off in precise locations mapped out with a tape measure.” https://politi.co/3hvRioQ 

Tidbit about drinking water: “The level of discipline is such that at times when someone stops to take a drink of water, that person will turn their head away from the others to reduce the chances of scattering droplets, according to campaign aides.”

Why Trump’s Nevada rally was so controversial:

President Trump held an indoor campaign rally in Henderson, Nev., yesterday, prompting pushback from local officials.

How the Henderson rally played out: “Aides said that every attendee would have their temperature checked before entering and would be provided with a mask that they were encouraged to wear. They also had access to hand sanitizer. However, like the president's recent rallies, most supporters were not wearing face coverings.” More from NBC’s Rebecca Shabadhttps://nbcnews.to/35BnqVJ

Defense from the Trump campaign: Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told reporters, "If you can join tens of thousands of people protesting in the streets, gamble in a casino, or burn down small businesses in riots, you can gather peacefully under the 1st Amendment to hear from the President of the United States.” https://bit.ly/3khv244

A FAMILIAR CHANT:

People in the crowd at President Trump’s rally chanted, “lock him up,” in reference to former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaMullen: 'National security issues do not wait' for presidential transitions Is Trump headed to another campaign or to a courtroom? With the Chang'e 5 launch, China takes a giant leap forward in the race to the moon MORE.

THIS WEEK IN CONGRESS

Guess who’s back, back, back again:

Via The Hill’s Jordain Carney and Juliegrace Brufke, “The House is returning this week for its final work period before the November election, with a government funding fight looming and uncertainty growing over whether Congress will pass a fifth coronavirus relief bill.” https://bit.ly/3bYYQPL 

How long the House will be in D.C. before leaving (again) for the November elections?: 12 working days (!) 

What to expect with government funding: Congress is expected to pass a short-term funding bill to keep the government funded after the Oct. 1 deadline. Democrats are internally debating whether to use a stopgap bill to fund the government through December or into early 2021. If Democrats take the Senate and the White House, they will obviously have more leverage. More on that debatehttps://bit.ly/3kh7XOM

WHAT ABOUT COVID-19 LEGISLATION?:

Coronavirus relief package: Congress is gridlocked on the next coronavirus relief package.

A resolution on COVID-19: The House is expected to vote on a resolution aimed at stopping “all forms of anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19.” 

Subpoena: “Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron JohnsonRonald (Ron) Harold JohnsonMcConnell halts in-person Republican lunches amid COVID-19 surge Loeffler isolating after possible COVID-19 infection Rick Scott tests positive for coronavirus MORE (R-Wis.) is holding a vote on Wednesday on authorizing additional subpoenas for his probes into the Obama administration and the Bidens.”

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING IN CONGRESS THIS WEEK:

Anti-discrimination: “The House is slated to vote on legislation aimed at protecting pregnant women from discrimination in the workplace.”

Diversity: “The House is also slated to take up two bills aimed at helping promote diversity and prevent discrimination in education.” 

And course, nominations
