Well, this didn’t take long. Donald Trump didn’t get his two hour attention fix yesterday afternoon at the White House presser, so of course he had to resort to his Twitter feed to fuel his narcissism.

At the risk of constant readers of this blog tearing your hair out because you have heard this so many times, the reason Trump is predicting a “miracle end” is because he believes this is a television show. Once you really internalize that concept, everything he does makes sense.

The reason for all the sturm and drang about Trump, from the beginning, has been the insistence on putting his actions into the context of a normal political leader. He doesn’t fit in that box and that’s not the box he ever wanted to be in in the first place. He saw the icon of the American president on the television set and he wanted the pomp and circumstance, the ceremony, the power — and most of all, the attention. And television gave him the part. That is the simple truth of what happened and where we are.

Trump is a simulacrum. He’s no kind of leader and he’s not much of a human being. And it is a testament to the power of television and the abject corruption of the GOP that he’s been able to perpetrate this skit of his to the lengths and level that he has. But now it would appear that there’s been a reckoning. His Jim Jones moment on Thursday, suggesting that people inject poison to get rid of coronavirus appears to be the step too far — and Trump himself, incredibly, seems to realize it. Daily Beast:

It has been said that Trump’s superpower is that he has no shame. He doesn’t get embarrassed, primarily because he isn’t self-aware enough to realize he should.

That seemed to change on Friday afternoon, however, when he suggested he was just being “sarcastic” about, you know, injecting disinfectant.

Trump normally prevaricates with abandon, attempting to gaslight us into believing we’re the ones with the problem. But on this occasion, he seemed self-aware. Finally, Trump seemed to realize that he was naked.

It takes a lot for a man this delusional to come to terms with reality. And while I’m not delusional enough to think he is maturing, or that avoiding the media will last (he craves attention too much for that), Trump might finally be getting scared.

No, avoiding the limelight did not last long at all. Trump does not like being home alone in the White House. When he is, he watches television seven hours a day and doesn’t get into the Oval Office until noon. So it was expected that either call ins to Fox News or Twitter would be his next go to to get his narcissistic fix. Unfortunately, Fox News is not the safe haven that it used to be.  And even the faithful may be deserting the flock.

Spot on. And I would add, if you want to put out a fire, don’t call the fire department, don’t listen to physicists or engineers, none of that. Just pray for a “Miracle end!” Better yet, listen to these whack a moles that Black Max just wrote about.

MMS [bleach] was first promoted by Jim Humble, the founder of Genesis II, a former Scientologist who claims to be a billion-year old god from the Andromeda Galaxy. Humble claims to have personally cured over 800 HIV/AIDS sufferers in Africa with MMS. He says MMS cured at least one patient of cancer, saying: “He wrote me, ‘I coughed up a tumor. The doctor was flabbergasted. The tumor is gone.’” (Apparently Humble and other MMS con artists have “cured” thousands of people in Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. I shudder to think how many people have died from their “ministrations.”) […]

In late 2019, Sisson held up two bottles of Genesis II and proclaimed: “Gonna meet Trump, it’s only a matter of time. President Trump’s gonna invite us up there, when he finds out about this stuff.”

This is all that the Trump administration has been lacking, is input from space aliens. Now that that is complete, can we finally, right now, begin to invoke the 25th Amendment and get this guy out?

So much to unpack here: 1) THANK YOU, Ursula, for spelling out the primary reason I’ve long since stopped being afraid of Trump: he’s a fake playing an obviously rigged game. Neil Gaiman said it best in his novel American Gods: rigged games are the easiest ones to beat. 2) Yeah, despite Trump’s best efforts, there is a demographic still around that remember Jonestown. Such obviously harmful advice awakens memories of that horror and encourage everyone with an interest in breathing to make the proper connections. 3) Ahh, Ursula, as I’ve said before, it’s far too late for the 25th… Read more »

i would love to be able to laugh at this crap from him, but the numbers don’t lie, the situation is much too serious. But one person we can really count on to resolve the mess, is Trump himself. he will never be able to just shut up and stay low, which will only add to his to his PR problems.

It’s too late for them to cut Trump loose.

I believe the power brokers in the Republican Party have given up on Trump’s re-election. They won’t admit this, of course, because they need Trump voters to show up on election day and vote for down-ballot Republicans. With luck, they might keep control of the Senate, enabling them to block any judicial appointments made by a Democratic president. Republicans have a history of passing off a huge economic mess they’re created to the Democrats (1932, 2008), then complain when the recovery doesn’t occur fast enough.

Sounds right, Karen. I would point out that if you’re relying on Lady Luck to save you, she usually lets you drown.

Pugs lose the Senate. That’s where my money is. By money, I mean the money I’ve been donating to various contenders.

Sounds like a solid bet to me, Michael.

The ad Trump-O the Assclown is sniveling about was not produced by “Do nothing Democrats”, it was produced by The Lincoln Project which is a conservative REPUBLICAN PAC.

Ah, c’mon, Blue, we both know that since they refuse to worship his overinflated ass, he doesn’t consider them REAL Republicans. He has yet to realize that they speak the lingua franca of the party he usurped better than he does.

I think I’ll bang my head on my desk now, or I would, if my cat Hillary weren’t sitting right next to my computer. Yes, she was named after the person who SHOULD be our president now.

Let’s be honest…Pence is the second Stepford Wife Vice-president of the United States (RIP Harlan Ellison, who called Dan Quayle the first such specimen).
