Trump Campaign Spent Nearly Half a Million on Fireworks
Doug Mills/AFP via GettyThe Trump campaign finds itself in an unexpected financial crunch heading into the election's homestretch: substantially behind Joe Biden in the cash it has on hand despite years of advanced preparation. If the president is looking to cast blame, however, the receipts suggest that it starts with himself.

During the month of August, the Trump campaign spent nearly half-a-million dollars on fireworks, almost certainly for the display that was put on over the south lawn of the White House during the Republican convention. That display was indisputably ostentatious—a seemingly never ending stream of lights that culminated in the words "Trump" and "2020" bedazzling the sky above the Washington Monument. But the price tag—$477,000—made the company behind the show, Grucci Inc., the campaign's ninth largest vendor of the entire month. The campaign paid more to the Long Island fireworks company in August than it spent on legal bills for its top firm, Jones Day, or its top pollster, Fabrizio Lee & Associates. It was well more than half of the $762,826.08 the campaign spent on its entire payroll.

Considering how much the Trump campaign brought in during August—$61,750,338—the fireworks expense may seem like a drop in the bucket. But Trump is badly trailing Biden in terms of money in the bank. The president and the Republican National Committee currently have $325 million cash on hand, compared to the $466 million Biden and the Democratic National Committee enjoy.

Kayleigh McEnany Struggles to Defend Trump Claim That COVID ‘Affects Virtually Nobody'
CARLOS BARRIAThe first question White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany fielded during Tuesday's press conference was not about the Supreme Court fight, but rather about the milestone of 200,000 deaths from COVID-19 that the United States has now reached.

CNN's Jim Acosta began by asking: "What do you say to Americans who are outraged over this and blame this administration for so many lives lost in this country?" After McEnany responded by saying that the number of dead Americans could have reached two million by now, Acosta specifically brought up the president's most recent attempt to downplay the severity of the coronavirus.

At his Monday evening rally in Ohio, the president told supporters that the virus "really affects" elderly people with heart problems and basically "nobody" young. "Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system," he says. "But it affects virtually nobody, it's an amazing thing." From there, he pivoted directly to, "Open your schools!"

83 Pearl Harbors, 109 Katrinas: U.S. COVID-19 Death in Perspective
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastThe battle of Gettysburg. The D-Day invasion of Normandy. The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

These are some of the most harrowing moments of mass death and suffering in American history—nightmares seared indelibly into the national consciousness. And yet they pale in terms of sheer lethality when compared to the novel coronavirus, which has now claimed more than 200,000 lives in the United States in a little over seven months.

For over half of 2020, Americans have sifted through daily reports of those deaths. What began as a trickle of misery out of the Northwest transformed into a flood of hundreds and in some cases thousands of lives lost per day. Suddenly, what would otherwise be canonized as national days of mourning in tribute to those lost were just another day in a horrible year.
