Donald Trump doesn’t have the intellectual hardware to do any kind of reasoned analysis. His career as a reality TV star and self-styled tabloid celebrity was built upon his ability to cobble together talking points and weave them into a simplistic black and white, us vs. them philosophy. This is the same philosophy that he brings to the White House now and it is a disaster, to use of of his own 200 vocabulary words. But, nevertheless, this is all he’s got so it’s all we’re going to get. Here is Trump’s latest contribution to the national discourse, as the govenor of Minnesota puts the National Guard on full mobilization.

He says these things not because he believes them, but because he needs somebody to blame. He is incapable of the analysis it would take to reach a decision as to what’s what in any given situation, and so his kneejerk reaction is to figure out who to point the finger at. That’s the topic of this new ad, and it is spot on.

This is good because it’s got presidents of both parties. Whether they’re mediocre or great, real leaders take responsibility. You will never see that from Donald Trump. He doesn’t have it in him. He’s too small and immature a person.

There’s also the oft spoken “I alone can fix it” line/theme he used in 2016 and the current (as he’s running for a second term with the deaths and economic wreckage his inept response to Covid-19 has wrought) to “It’s up to the Governors” theme now.

There’s so many of his BS ‘lines/themes’ the septic tank business should be overflowing. (pun intended)

Apparently, he has the intelligence to subvert a Democracy and make it an authoritative autocrat government that even Congress is afraid of. However twisted, he’s making it work and nobody has the balls to stand up and stop this. I’m still astonished that no one claims to have seen this coming. I saw it from the beginning. He talked to Putin just prior to his meeting with all the governors. We need not guess what the directives were. We see them laid out.

It’s more than “He’s too small and immature a person” He has no normal human feelings.

He’s a pimp and he’s been pimping this country out to the highest bidder for almost 4 years now.

Brutal but accurate, Wolf. He’s also a particularly stupid pimp in how he used the goods he was selling. But that too has been a lifelong pattern.

Implied by the above: he’s losing this argument like he’s been losing all the others this year. Take it as a good sign.

Trump is a victim of his own making. I read some trump voters have thought for years that the media was too hard on him; but since the pandemic, they think the media is fair in their criticism. Maybe they are seeing how some FOX personalities are venturing out of the cult.

It takes a special someone to be a victim of their own failure.

Weak minded unable to string a coherent sentence together and afraid to take responsibility hard to call this person a president without cringing

and run it down to the leaders of police unions who are always to defend the actions of cops, even when they commit murder.

Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit: There must
be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside
out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect.

That is not conservatism though it is today’s Republicans, who are anarchists and arsonists hellbent on total power for themselves.

Ursula, I live outside St. Paul, Minnesota. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s house is a mile from me. This is real for us. George Floyd should not have died last Sunday and justice must be done. Chauvin has been charged with 3rd degree murder and second degree manslaughter. We are hoping that the other three officers involved will be held accountable for their part in this murder. tRump and Barr said over the weekend that Antifa and left wing radicals are responsible for the violence and arson here. Our residents say NO. What the people who live here have seen… Read more »

Trump is lost to the pandemic/riots/et.all, because he knows nothing about being a real president, just the part about having this huge plane/crew on call for the next golf excursion, 3 days a week if there is good weather … he can’t read anything with big words, (more than 4 letters), he has limited knowledge about trade deals and how his, (pen forced decisions, actually hurt us more than anyone else), has stood our country on the brink of total collapse, because absolutely NO action correctly done against the Trump virus, [NOTHING] … then after ignoring every piece of GOOD… Read more »
