There’s a surreal confluence of events right now with President Trump’s push for $2,000 checks. In his effort to remain relevant, lash out and fuel the fantasy the election is still underway, President Trump glommed on to the Democrats’ proposal for $2,000 relief checks. Now it may end up both making $2,000 checks a reality and upending the Republicans in the Senate runoffs. It could be both, neither, a mix. But he’s now created a situation in which McConnell will really cut Loeffler and Perdue off at the knees if he doesn’t allow this vote to happen. They both say they support it. If McConnell, the guy who’s control of the senate is their election raison d’etre, opposes it where does that leave them? They’re both now endorsing it after consistently opposing it. And the Democrat Ossoff is the one who’s pushed them.
