    “Donald Trump has a long list of enemies. In the course of his presidency, he has attacked the press, the FBI, the CIA, the military, Canada, NATO, the U.S. Park Police, governors, mayors, Fox News, and his own appointees. With every new fight, he forces his sympathizers to choose between trusting him and trusting anyone else. Now in his latest act of self-destruction, he has declared war on Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
    Fauci is the country’s most revered authority on the coronavirus pandemic. In polls, more than two-thirds of Americans trust him, while nearly 60 percent express little or no faith in Trump. A sane president would embrace Fauci and try to absorb some of his credibility…” https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/10/trump-fauci-coronavirus-attack-idiotic.html

      “CEO emails 10 million customers to tell them to vote for Biden” https://www.cbsnews.com/news/expensify-ceo-david-barrett-emails-customers-vote-biden/ [The consulting firm Accenture recently found that almost two-thirds of Americans say their purchasing behaviors are swayed toward companies that support views or causes with which they agree.]

      Expensify CEO David Barrett: “I know you don’t want to hear this from me. And I guarantee I don’t want to say it. But we are facing an unprecedented attack on the foundations of democracy itself. If you are a US citizen, anything less than a vote for Biden is a vote against democracy.
      That’s right, I’m saying a vote for Trump, a vote for a third-party candidate, or simply not voting at all — they’re all the same, and they all mean:
      “I care more about my favorite issue than democracy. I believe Trump winning is more important than democracy. I am comfortable standing aside and allowing democracy to be methodically dismantled, in plain sight.”
      If the polls are accurate, there’s a roughly 50% chance that you agree Trump needs to go. You know what to do: show up on November 3rd and vote for Biden. Or even better, don’t wait until then: vote today. Go to Vote.org if you need help figuring out how.
      The rest of this email is intended to address the concerns of those who disagree, and I’ll try to take the most likely questions in turn:”
