He’s on steroids now, against his COVID-19 pneumonia. Known side effect: mania. Giving steroids to Trump is like police beating up a victim of abuse.
We all know Trump likes to do things big, bigger, the biggest.
It’s not enough to be the top person co-responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of Americans, estranging millions of bereaved voters, and endangering the health and lives of his staff and supporters. He must now persist in ignoring the mask and keep holding mass rallies.
It’s not enough to bungle the economy like it were his personal finances (six bankruptcies). He has now declared: no more disaster relief money until after the election. Starving blue-color workers and small-business owners easily are the majority of the People.
It is not enough to work full-speed-ahead for a solid conservative immoral majority in the High Court of Justice for decades to come, endangering a woman’s right to choose. We now hear that the Court will be eager to overturn Gay Marriage too. Women and Gays and their Allies are probably the most solid majority of any cluster of US voters.
He’s not taking any chance, doing everything to ensure he can say about his election loss: No one defeated me. I repulsed everyone just by myself.

On a related issue, in the vice-presidential debate, it was shocking to see that VP Pence, like his boss Trump, could not respect when his speaking time was up. And he interrupted Harris all the time. The Administration’s leaders stole from the People as never before, are thieves themselves.
Pence played the gentleman that he always does. I was not impressed. Harris did a great job, looking at her opponent in disbelief when it was bad what he said and shaking her head when he said total nonsense. She also played a practiced role but it was one that one can identify with. The thin smile that Pence carried happened to come across as condescending.
Like in the first presidential debate, the Democrat won on character.
