REALLY? Dementia Addled Trump Babbles that ‘I Have Never Seen the Republican Party So Unified’

The 2024 presidential election cycle has been dominated in the media by questions of the mental acuity of both candidates. It’s not a particularly fair contest considering that President Biden’s alleged signs of aging are generally harmless verbal glitches that were common in his youth, while Donald Trump’s are frightening expressions of vengeance, aspirations of tyranny, or just plain incoherence.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

Trump’s remarks prior to and following the South Carolina Republican primary affirm the fragility of his psychological state. Among his mental malfunctions were his tribute to the violent January 6th insurrectionists; his fear mongering about “terrorist” migrants who speak “languages nobody has ever heard of;” and his comparison of his 91 felony charges, that were issued by citizen grand juries, to “Stalinist show trials.” He was so debilitated that even Fox News couldn’t pretend anymore.

Naturally, Trump’s notorious narcissism and massive ego were on full display. And never more so than when he attempted to glorify himself and his supposed blowout victory. Despite defeating his opponent, Nikki Haley, by about twenty points – after he predicted it would be thirty or forty – Trump had the audacity to proclaim that…

“There’s never been a spirit – ever – there’s never been a spirit like this. And I just want to say I have never seen the Republican party so unified as it is right now.”

WHUT? No rational person could describe losing 40% of your own party’s vote as a show unity. And that’s what happened, not just in South Carolina, but in New Hampshire and Iowa as well. By contrast, Biden won 96% of the vote in South Carolina’s Democratic primary. That’s unity.

What’s more, does Trump see GOP unity in Congress, where Republicans took 15 votes to elect Kevin McCarthy Speaker? Nine months later they booted him out. Then it took three weeks to replace him with Mike Johnson, who was their fourth choice, after Steve Scalise, Jim Jordan, and Tom Emmer failed. And they have been unable to pass critical legislation to fund the government, secure the border, or aid America’s allies in Israel and Ukraine. If anything, Trump has unified the GOP for its own destruction.

Once again, let’s see what Fox News had to say about Trump’s boasting of party unity. This time from Fox anchor John Roberts…

“The real key here is that 59% of Haley voters say that they would not vote for Donald Trump should he become the nominee. That tracks to about 24% of the Republican Party.”

Indeed, this is key. Because there is little hope for Trump to prevail in the general election if he can’t hold more than 60% of his GOP base. And these are not simply people who chose a different candidate in the primary. They are declaring that they won’t for Trump in the general election either.

Trump’s dementia has to be pretty bad for Fox News to notice it. But apparently, it has to be even worse for Trump to notice it. He told his cult followers at CPAC not to worry, because…

“There is no cognitive problem. If there was I’d know about it. In fact, if there was, you’ll be the first to know. Because I will tell you.”

Of course. And everyone knows that Trump would readily observe any cognitive decline that he might suffer, and he would immediately declare it to the world. Just like he’s declaring the unprecedented unity of the MAGA Republican Party that regularly throws their own under a caravan of buses, and can’t pass any significant bills if their lives depended on it. But never fear. Trump will keep us posted if his brain ceases to function. That should make his cult disciples feel better.
