I didn’t want to touch him. He was bleeding all over the place. And I felt terrible, because it was a beautiful white marble floor, and now it had changed color. Became very red.” You said, "That's cool!"

What you don't get, Trump supporters, is that our succumbing to frustration and shaking our heads, thinking of you as stupid, may very well be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also...hear me...charitable.

Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less flattering.

Say it plainly: The president is a psychopath
By Alan D. Blotcky and Seth D. Norrholm
New York Daily News | Sep 24, 2020 at 2:00 PM


https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-the-president-is-a-psychopath-20200924-i4yegtrvjvelzgrqniinn6pvue-story.html

“Get rid of the ballots” and “there won’t be a transfer,” said Donald Trump on Wednesday. This comment is a direct and dangerous expression of his anti-democratic intention. If unstopped, Trump may well destroy our 244-year-old democracy.

It is time to stop pulling punches. It is time to stop relying on political pundits to weigh in on Trump’s behavior, which they often soften and even normalize.

We are psychologists, and we are convinced Donald Trump is a psychopath. His malignant behavior over the past four years is growing and escalating right before our eyes. Trump’s psychopathy will change us forever if he is not stopped.

This is not hyperbole. This is not an expression of "a left-wing agenda.” This is a mental health opinion based on thousands of hours of documented behavior by this president.

He breaks norms, rules, and laws with impunity.

He lies, on average, 15 times a day.

He peddles fake conspiracy theories and irrational magical thinking.

He has been accused of sexually predatory behavior by at least 25 women.

He blames, scapegoats and gaslights as easily as he breathes.

He undermines the vital role of the free press because he abhors oversight and accountability.

His lies and anti-scientific advice and intentional downplaying of the coronavirus pandemic has led to countless American deaths.

He is callous and cold and unfeeling because he has no conscience.

He denigrates and humiliates anyone and everyone in his path.

He has no respect for military heroes or renowned experts.

He is racist and xenophobic.

He incites violence and culture wars.

He is obsessed with power and adoration.

He is a greedy opportunist.

He is corrupt to the core.

Now Trump is desperate to win re-election. He does not want to lose his hold on power for a number of reasons, most notably his insatiable thirst for attention. He is afraid of facing criminal charges once he leaves office. He is already essentially an unindicted co-conspirator in a campaign finance crime. He knows he is lawless and corrupt; that is why he lies about it so frequently and fervently.

Trump will do absolutely anything — no matter how untruthful or illegal or immoral — to win this election. He has already compromised the Postal Service.

Trump will declare victory as soon as he can, even if millions of ballots have not been counted. If need be, he will challenge the election results so that the Supreme Court will ultimately choose him for a second term. In fact, he has openly admitted that he wants to immediately replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg because of the upcoming election. Trump’s desire to sabotage our election process is the behavior of a dictator.

Trump is letting the Russians intervene on his behalf in this election. They are doing so. Before Trump, such an invitation would have been considered treasonous and criminal.

Trump is fearmongering about Joe Biden and all Democrats on a daily basis. His allegations against Biden are outrageous and even bizarre; Trump asserted that there are “people in dark shadows” who are controlling Biden.

Trump’s falsehoods about health insurance and pre-existing illnesses and Social Security benefits and Medicare are intended to sow doubt and confusion in the American public. He says one thing but does the exact opposite. He tells us that he will protect pre-existing illnesses, but behind the scenes he is taking court action to disallow them.

Trump is the most psychiatrically disordered president in history.

Donald Trump is dishonest and destructive and evil. He has become embolden and empowered by the complicity of his Republican sycophants. Sadly, he now believes he is destined to carry on his mission. He feels unstoppable. And he must be stopped before it is too late.

Surprise! The ‘real people’ in Trump ad campaign are actually Republican operatives

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/9/24/1980313/-Surprise-The-real-people-in-Trump-ad-campaign-are-actually-Republican-operatives

The Trump administration has a base. That base is very white. That base seems to be willing to buy anything Trump-related. The base is all in on whatever madness Trump concocts. There’s a second tier of conservatives who are voting for Trump that, while not wearing the silly Trump-branded trinkets of jingoism, want to believe that there is something essentially ideologically conservative represented in Trump that will allow them to sleep at night while kids are sleeping in cages. There is something ideologically conservative about Trump, but it’s mostly the fascistic, xenophobic, anti-Democracy aspects of the Republican Party.

Of course, the trick to massaging the minds of this section of the Republican base is by putting up less … hectic faces of Trump support. If you can have someone who sounds reasonable and not someone shrieking about Obama being a secret Muslim while carrying an AR-15 wrapped in an American flag skin, your ad will come across better.

Unfortunately for the Trump campaign, most of those conservative types either don’t want to admit they support Trump—at least not on camera—or they’ve gone and begun making ads in support of Joe Biden because Trump is such a monster. Gizmodo reports that the Trump campaign has a solution to this issue: Just hire Republican operatives and call them “real people” in advertisements promoting the idea that your regular middle-class multiethnic and multigendered Americans feel like they want to breathe more of that COVID-19 fresh air the Trump administration has brought about.

RealPeopleAd: Fern Smith, Steve Wenzel, Amy Sherk

The ads in question have been running on Facebook, and—along with inspiring music spliced in with images of Donald Trump waving as he walks to and from Air Force One—shows what seems to be a very diverse focus group. Of course, this is a focus group where people say things like “President Trump has kept his promises,” and “President Trump is the right person for this nation’s economy.” While it is filled with technically “real” people, it is not filled with regular folks.

It turns out that one of the ladies saying she’s afraid of a Biden presidency is Fern A. Smith. It turns out that Mrs. Smith is the Republican candidate running to represent District 51B in Minnesota this November. Fern is staunchly anti-Obamacare, but like Trump, she’s telling people that she really wants to make sure everybody’s health insurance is affordable. How’s she going to do that? Easy—just ask Trump how he was able to do that!

Also in the ad is Steve Wenzel. He’s like your white grandpa. He’s no wacky, sign-waving yahoo. He’s a been a Republican delegate from Minnesota at the last two Republican National Conventions. He’s also a guy who says “China virus” instead of COVID-19 or the coronavirus. So, he is like some of your white grandpas. And in his defense, he’s a Republican, and they’re mostly racist and right now they have so many people to be racist against what with Black Lives Matter, Latino immigrant activists, China being all Chinese, and Muslim people continuing to live peacefully in our country while white guys with guns keep shooting and killing people.

Another Trump Facebook ad shows a regular woman, Kim Sherk, speaking about how awful Biden is and how Donald Trump has been the best candidate for small businesses ever. That’s weird, because over 100,000 small businesses have closed this year during the pandemic, and Trump and the Republican Party have been unwilling to get them the stimulus relief they need. Maybe they can all become banks and get some of that slush fund Mnuchin is holding onto? Well, Ms. Sherk is the first vice-chair of the Cobb County Republican Party. In fact, here’s her bio from the Cobb County Republican Party page.

Trump has indicated by his refusal to answer that he is planning to stay on even if he loses.

Now this: “The Trump campaign is discussing plans to ask state representatives to set aside the election results in their state and select Trump electors *even if Trump loses the vote in their state.*

That would be the death of American democracy. That is not an overstatement. It’s a fact.”

“The Atlantic’s Barton Gellman reports that the Trump campaign has been discussing “contingency plans to bypass the election results and appoint local electors in battleground states where Republicans hold the legislative majority.” Citing the president’s baseless claims of fraud, Team Trump could ask GOP-controlled state governments to choose electors, completely ignoring an unfavorable or uncertain popular vote, state and national Republican sources told Gellman.

“The state legislatures will say, ‘All right, we’ve been given this constitutional power,’” a Trump campaign legal adviser explained to the Atlantic. “‘We don’t think the results of our own state are accurate, so here’s our slate of electors that we think properly reflect the results of our state.’”

This should make Trump supporters on this Forum very happy. They will get their wish for 4, 8, 12 more years at which point they'll be dead and the young will be left with a dictatorship. Maybe that is what they actually want?



We need a military coup just like in the other banana republics!

A message from Adam Schiff...


The last four years of Donald Trump have taken a real toll on our democracy, the rule of law, and our country as we know it. It must end.

That’s why today, I’m introducing a major bill to ensure that no future president can do the kind of damage this one has done, ever again.

My new legislation — The Protecting Our Democracy Act — is an ambitious set of comprehensive reforms designed to prevent abuses of presidential power, restore our system of checks and balances, create greater accountability and transparency, and protect our elections.

If you believe it’s critical that we prevent future presidents from doing the same kind of damage that Trump has done, add your name as a citizen co-sponsor in support of this legislation now:


ADD YOUR NAME


For too long, Trump has gotten away with major abuses of power and attacks on our democratic institutions like never before. Time and again, he’s placed his personal and political interests above the national interests and the well being of the American people.

Trump has used his position in the Oval Office to: enrich himself and his family, protect himself and his enablers, attack the free press and his political opponents, encourage foreign interference in our elections, and end all accountability as we know it.

After the Watergate scandal — a similarly dark time in American history — Congress took action to pass a series of landmark laws and reforms to change politics and prevent a future president from abusing their office the way Richard Nixon did. Those changes have stood the test of time, but nobody could have foreseen what Trump would do to our country and rule of law.

We desperately need to pass a new set of reforms to stop Trump, or any other president, from abusing the power of the presidency any further. If you’re with me, add your name to put pressure on Congress to pass The Protecting Our Democracy Act ASAP.


ADD YOUR NAME


No matter what happens this November, we need to do everything in our power to prevent another Trump from ever eroding our democracy again in the future. Thanks so much for your help and for standing by my side.

Dear little donny, thank you for lying about the threat of the Sars-CoV-2 virus and Covid-19. you knew the virus was deadly. you knew the virus spread through airborne transmission. However, you didn't want to "cause a panic." I understand. you told the World that the virus was just "going to go away." you told the World that the virus "would be gone by Easter" because you knew that would manipulate your Evangelical voters. you politicized the virus and used it to sew division between your brain dead "trump's chumps" followers and those of us educated in science. you continue to politicize the virus when you call it "the China Virus" and blame China for the US death toll. However, had mask usage been implemented much earlier, then many of those that have died would still be here. you clearly don't care and will lie whenever you feel it will suit your needs. The responsibility for the magnitude of US death toll lies squarely on you!

Well, in the US we now have 6,897,389 confirmed cases and a total of 200,815 deaths attributed to Covid-19.

Once again, Thank you!

The families of all those that have died also thank you!

With an average weight of 150 lb. per person, that's 30,122,250 lb. of dead bodies.

The number is almost incomprehensible.

May the weight of all those lost crush you like a bug splattering on a car windshield as it travels at freeway speed.

Much of the planet's arable farmland will be reduced to near sterile desert. Billions of people will die.

This is the biggest threat humanity faces.
