He’s a con artist and a bully. He’s charmed by dictators and supremacists. But he’s not ‘living in his own reality.’ He knows very well that he lost the election. But clinging to power is more his style than admitting his loss.
How do we know that he is not delusional? He set up a fund, supposedly to challenge the election results, but in fact, the fund puts money in Trump’s hand and he can do with it whatever he wants. He’s using his ‘battle’ to milk his supporters. The thief in chief is very much ‘with it.’
The assumption that Trump ‘lost it,’ functions ‘completely illogically and unpredictably,’ tells us that there is nothing that can be done to stop this ‘loony.’ While he’s not unpredictable at all. He will use any loophole in and out of the book to be what we know him for. Conceding is for wimps.
Would he bomb Iran? Why Not? He would bomb Iran to gain support as a strongman in times of war. To tap into the nationalistic vibe. To distract from negative publicity about him. To leave his successor a mess and then blame him for it. It’s a gift that keeps giving. Stop him, before he goes for it. Remove him from office today, before the rockets start flying. When he begins this, don’t blame him. Don’t say: ‘Jeez, who could have known?’ He’s completely true to character and predictable. Remove him today.
Would he pardon himself and every crook in the book who would ever vote for him? Of course, he would. Take out this possibility in the future.
Would he continue to say outrageous things to draw attention (and admiration of his base) to him? Of course, he will. Black out his words.
Meanwhile, Trump is busy bullying Fox News into more extremist positions and further disrupting US Democracy. So, he has no time to speak in a supportive way to the disheartened population because of the losses from the deadly coronavirus pandemic. And he downplayed the Russian cyber security breaches. For another month, he’s a liability even if he does zilch.
