“With Obama we won an election that everyone said couldn’t be won.” Um…scuse me? Wasn’t that Hillary Clinton who ran against you in 2016, Mr. Trump? Or is one of us confused? If you missed it, last night Donald Trump showed up at a prayer summit, because he’s the chosen one and such a godly guy and all so of course that’s where he belongs. He seemed to get a bit confused about some basics.
He has really lost it.
I can’t imagine him making through a campaign in this mental state.
How in the world is Trump going to be still in a courtroom when other GOP criminals testify against him?

Is he saying that Biden wants to arrest Obama or that he, Trump, is leading Obama? I can’t sort through this and I’ve listened to it several times. What I do get loud and clear is that Trump is at the podium stumbling along and he has no idea what the hell is coming out of his own mouth or what he’s trying to say.
Biden may be gaffe prone, but he has never rambled aimlessly and off topic like this. This is embarrassing. But like with “covfefe” there will always be somebody to spin it as something legitimate. Oh he meant to say that. That means such and such.
I think Trump is cracking under pressure and that makes complete sense. He raved yesterday about Jack Smith “taking away my First Amendment rights” and this was after he made the demand that the judge in the classified documents case, Tanya Chutkan, recuse herself.
I think what’s going on is that he’s used to going off the walls on Truth Social so much that now he can’t pull it all together and be cogent for a short while when he’s up in front of his MAGA cult.
Once again, if you simply pull out and see this from a distance, it is remarkable that somebody in this condition would be the GOP frontrunner. When I say condition I mean not only his mental state but the fact that he’s under four criminal indictments and is an adjudicated rapist. This is not sustainable. I don’t know where the Republican party is going next, or if America is simply going to fold to fascism, but this, what we’re seeing here and now, is not sustainable. This is aberrant to an extreme. I simply marvel and not for the first time, certainly, that we are actually here in this time and place and having this conversation.
