Let’s start out with a poll. Which do you think is Donald Trump’s worst trait?

  1. The ridiculous malapropisms he keeps coming up with;
  2. His pathological denial of anything he can’t deal with;
  3. His abject stupidity;
  4. All of the above.

Trump’s ABC News Town Hall was expected to be bonkers, but this short clip with George Stephanopoulos pretty much takes the cake.

We’re assuming that Trump means “herd immunity” and not herd mentality. Although maybe he does mean herd mentality, because remember, folks, in his mind, this is all a PR problem and not a global pandemic. So he very well could believe that if we all just get our heads right and ignore the dead bodies stacking up around us, herd mentality could save the day.

In the event he’s talking about herd immunity, only 7% to 9% of the U.S. population are estimated to have been infected with COVID-19, and herd immunity requires 50% to 70% of the nation to contract the disease. Therefore, it could be with us forever.

Trump is back to touting inane formulas for COVID-19 recovery, because he knows that there’s no vaccine in immediate sight. The only — and best — change in the handling of coronavirus that can be made is to vote him out and get the pandemic into competent hands.

Conversely, any science Trump tries to push is indistinguishable from conspiracy theories.

Well we’re too close to that 50% on the herd mentality.

Give it a few more months and that particular herd should thin out.

I think herd mentality pretty much describes Trumpers. They don’t seem to think for themselves, unless it’s about CT.

If only they could recall what happens to herds…

The only “herd” I see are the lemmings going over the cliff.

Of course, “Herd Mentality” is only a state of mind.

P.S. 90% of “Herd Mentality” is half mental!
