For two years, William Barr has served President Trump with exemplary loyalty. Whether it came to Robert Mueller's report about Russian electoral interference or last year's impeachment trial, the U.S. attorney general always stood by the president, so much so that some wondered if he was acting more as the president's private attorney than as the nation's chief legal officer. As other Cabinet members departed, voluntarily or under pressure, as rumors circulated that Trump might replace Mike Pence on the 2020 ticket, Barr remained a fixture in the Trumpian universe, articulating and justifying the president's many grievances, whether against congressional Democrats or protesters in Portland, Ore.

Despite all the fury on social media about the fly on Mike Pence's head and Kamala Harris' demeanor, analysts say the vice presidential debate is unlikely to alter the state of the presidential race. The comments during and after Wednesday's debate were full of complaints that the Democratic vice presidential candidate was too snarky, catty, and had an annoying voice. “Kamala Harris behaved like a 'Valley Girl,' smirking and rolling her eyes like a petulant brat, dodging every question she was asked.”
Democratic U.S. presidential nominee Joe Biden said on Saturday "the only way" he could lose to President Donald Trump was through "chicanery," before clarifying that he will accept the election result. Biden encouraged potential voters at a campaign stop in the must-win battleground of Pennsylvania, telling them "make sure to vote because the only way we lose this is by the chicanery going on relative to polling places."

A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Saturday threw out a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump's campaign, dismissing its challenges to the battleground state's poll-watching law and its efforts to limit how mail-in ballots can be collected and which of them can be counted. The ruling by U.S. District Judge J. Nicholas Ranjan — who was appointed by Trump — in Pittsburgh also poured cold water on Trump's claims that Pennsylvania is fertile ground for election fraud. Trump's campaign said it would appeal at least one element of the decision, with barely three weeks to go until Election Day in a state hotly contested by Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The in-person event marked Trump's return to the campaign spotlight after announcing his COVID-19 diagnosis on Oct. 2 and being hospitalized at Maryland's Walter Reed hospital.
