Donald Trump is getting worse
The so-obvious-it's-hitting-you-in-the-face conclusion? Trump isn't giving up his delusions about the 2020 election. They're getting worse.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T

CNN's Dana Bash reported Thursday morning that former President Donald Trump is "more obsessed than ever with the 2020 election," with one former Trump aide telling her that the former President is only listening to "the bottom of the bottom of the crazies in the barrel." That follows on reporting from The New York Times and The Washington Post that Trump is convinced that he will, at some point this summer, be reinstated as president once a variety of kooky and non-credible audits come to, uh, fruition.


"Trump has become so fixated on the audits that he suggested recently to allies that their success could result in his return to the White House this year, according to people familiar with comments he has made," wrote the Post. Trump himself has been sending out a slew of statements on the topic -- blasting Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, both Republicans, for not doing more to support the ridiculous recount in Maricopa County.


And on Monday, Trump blasted this out: "Great work is being done in Georgia revealing the Election Fraud of the 2020 Presidential Election. But, we must not allow ANYONE to compromise these ballots by leaving the building unsecured, which was done late Friday. Republicans and Patriots must protect this site and the Absentee Ballots."


And, it's not just Trump.


Those who take their cues from him -- which is rightly understood as the majority of the Republican base -- are descending deeper into the madness of wild conspiracy theories too.


Witness Michael Flynn, Trump's one-time national security adviser, who over the weekend appeared to endorse a Myanmar-like coup in the United States. (Flynn later said on Parler that "there is NO reason whatsoever for any coup in America, and I do not and have not at any time called for any action of that sort.")


Or Republican-controlled legislatures around the country moving to pass so-called "election security" laws in response to the nonexistent threat posed by widespread election fraud.


You get the idea. This crap is not slowing down or going away, It's picking up steam.

All of which undermines the strategy employed by Republican leaders in Washington to date -- which is best described by Homer Simpson regarding a big test he needs to take: "During the exam, I'll hide under some coats and hope that somehow everything will work out."

The desperate hope of the likes of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was that in the wake of the 2020 election, Trump would simply fade away.
That, yes, he would remain a figure of some stature for some within the Republican Party, but that his ability to command the national stage or exert considerable influence over the direction of the Party would wane considerably.
It just hasn't happened. Which creates this reality for Republicans: As Trump swerves more and more into ever-wilder fantasies about his return to power, the GOP base follows right along with him.

What's more worrisome for Republicans: There is zero evidence that Trump has hit rock bottom yet. Or that there is a bottom at all.

And they have permitted his ridiculous behavior for so long now, it's hard to imagine they can suddenly say that the former President has crossed some line in terms of propriety or responsibility. He -- and they -- left that line in the dust a long time ago.

Bullshit.  He straight up says it, and the QAnon crowd went nuts with the cheers.

Don't worry.

The state audits currently taking place and those to come will prove Biden won fair and square.

Nope.

They won't prove anything because the sole purpose is to prove their biased viewpoint.

(These lunatics are looking for "Bamboo Fibers" in the paper...because their dumb enough to believe that the paper came from China!)

For starters, too stupid to know that Bamboo also grows in the U.S., DUH!

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?  Unfortunately there's no Nurse Ratched to do the necessary thing, but is being banned from Facebook for 2 more years a sort of Lobotomy?

Trump isn't really getting worse.  He is exactly the same as he always was.

Except now his position has completely reversed.  Prior to 'politician Trump' he was able to control the narrative and if the situation became too adverse he'd jump into the elevator, run to the limousine, climb into his jet and to arrive at a different place until 'the situation' blew over or his lawyers handled the riff.  Unfortunately for him, although fortunately for decency, Trump has made himself fair game for every grievance he bestowed on others, not to mention his fraudulent self being the center of his fraudulent self.

Can not explain the thoughts and actions of the MAGA bots, but in the long run when an autocratic dictator such as Putin uses a public address to defend and cover for you--you are at the end of the last rung.

Will not venture a guess as to how the MAGA, Trumpism or Trump will fare in the future---but---I am glad I ain't him.

It is time to ask Media why do they keep reporting on this fool: Donald Trump. How much free press is he privileged to anyway?! He is a former president, for crying out loud. Can't he just 'go' to his spot in the pasture and settle in already.

When this spectacular fool speaks; Media why do you come running? What we have here is Donald Trump who is directly and indirectly responsible for the death of multiple citizens in-country. Why does he qualify for any respect whatsoever?!  For real 'player,' some of our sadistic murderers in prison should ask to be released 'for cause' since Donald can't see to get arrested no matter how much law he 'overrules.'

Be like Twitter. They dropped Donald's foolish butt like a rock and have not looked back. FaceBook is trying to do the same. How about the MSM? Drop this tired old "has been" already!

All money ain't good money, Bob (as you know, I am sure). In which case, if they want Trump resources (though it doubtful he wishes any one who does not promote him up to have even the 'dregs' of his capital, power, or influence) then they could consider what matters most them: Money or a properly working country! Choose all damn ready!

Is MSNBC "Trump Country" or is it NOT?! Be clear. Because out here I the distinction is blurred!

Certainly not!  ...   but it doesn't matter.. 

Anti-Trump segments also sell ads. So it's Trump 24/7.
