Long time Progressive Activist Undertakes Water-Only Fast to Defeat Donald Trump

Ted Glick talks about his current month-long "Fast to Defeat Donald Trump" in the presidential election. Consuming only water, salt, potassium, and vitamin C, Glick will be continuing his fast until Nov. 3.

Glick has been an activist for more than 50 years. He is author of "Burglar for Peace: Lessons Learned in the Catholic Left's Resistance to the Vietnam War."


@RestingDad @logicbot3000 @bubbaprog @govkristinoem Jail or citations make no sense when the punishing winter and flu season is upon us. Somehow people are woefully ignorant of how interconnected our 21st century world now is and this is a pandemic with a virus we have no immunity for.

@RestingDad @logicbot3000 @bubbaprog @govkristinoem How about less intubations, overrun ICU units & medical staff due to the virus' voracious contagiousness, less loved ones getting sick or dying alone w/o family near in hospitals far from home, or just dying at home to avoid costly bills. Over 220,000 dead already-been thru it

In many states and across the U.S., the worst coronavirus outbreaks are in rural areas.

Counties of fewer than 10,000 people are seeing more coronavirus cases than at any other time during the pandemic. https://t.co/K8D9hFUeY8

Our U.S. tracking pages now show testing and hospitalization, giving a fuller picture.

In Ohio, where new cases are up about 63% over two weeks ago, testing is increasing but hospitalizations are also up — so more testing alone doesn't explain the rise. https://t.co/FIVeBY8Pek https://t.co/FaGSQMlhfY
