There is nothing that Donald Trump likes better than to childishly insult his critics and political opponents. With regard to Joe Biden, that has included numerous references to mental stability and fitness for office. Unfortunately for Trump, the American people have thoroughly rejected his claims and, even worse, believe that Trump is the one with the cognitive dysfunction. And in a head to head comparison, more voters say that Trump is unfit to serve.
Trump has been surprisingly helpful in providing abundant evidence of his acute psychoses. And on Sunday morning he added to the voluminous documentation that he is utterly nuts. This naturally came in the form of rage-filled tweets. Even though he has lately been curtailing the quantity of his Twitter output, this has not impacted that “quality” in any way. Such as this…
This week you had Joe Biden call Arizona a CITY. Nothing matters with him, however, because the Opposition Party (Lamestream Media) covers everything up – especially the corruption. The Obama/Biden Administration is the most corrupt in history. They even spied on my campaign!

No matter how many times Trump asserts that President Obama spied on his campaign, it still isn’t true. And Trump’s allegations of corruption by Obama are a laughable demonstration of projection. It’s Trump and his confederates who have actually been charged and convicted of criminal – even treasonous – conduct.
Trump’s swipe at Biden for a trivial gaffe is just another deliberate misrepresentation of reality. The truth is that Trump clipped that comment out of a twelve minute interview of Biden. He was responding specifically to the anchor of a local TV station in the city of Phoenix. After this comment he immediately noted that the connection between him and the station was “breaking up” So it’s likely that when the anchor said he appreciated Biden “taking the time to talk to the people of our state,” Biden wasn’t able to hear it correctly and assumed the anchor said “city.”
However, if Trump really wants to make this an issue for debate, then he has to deal with more than a few verbal mishaps of his own. For instance, Trump said that…
- Africa is a country
- Belgium is a city
- He “met with the president of the Virgin Islands.”
- Revolutionary war troops took control of airports
- Kansas City, Missouri is in the state of Kansas
- He “watched the firemen on 7/11.”
- Injecting bleach will cure the coronavirus
- He is building a border wall between Colorado and Mexico
That’s just a small sampling of Trump’s episodes of derangement. He has also been documented as having told more than 20,000 lies in the past three and half years. But he wasn’t through with his Sunday morning rage-tweeting. He also posted this…
The Trump Campaign has more ENTHUSIASM, according to many, than any campaign in the history of our great Country – Even more than 2016. Biden has NONE! The Silent Majority will speak on NOVEMBER THIRD!!! Fake Suppression Polls & Fake News will not save the Radical Left.

Well, if Trump says that enthusiasm for him is greater than for any campaign in history “according to many,” then it must be true. You just have to ask, many what? Because every poll shows that Biden is beating him nationally, as well as in every crucial swing state. What’s more, he can hardly brag about enthusiasm in 2016 when he lost the the popular vote by three million votes.
Trump’s imaginary “silent majority” is a dead give away of his desperation. Because it can’t be a good sign when you’re stealing campaign slogans from Richard Nixon. Also, the majority in America is far from silent. They have taken to the streets by the hundreds of thousands all across the nation. They are virtually screaming that Trump must be thrown out in 2020.
The American people have had enough. They have seen Trump’s negligence and deliberate malfeasance in mismanaging the coronavirus pandemic. That has led to the deaths of more than 146,000 people. Voters are also aware that Trump’s incompetence has resulted in an economic recession that put 50 million people out of work. They have watched as he cozied up to our enemies and alienated our allies. And they have endured his prioritizing the welfare of corporations and the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.
So now Trump is resorting to his infantile tendencies to lash out with petulant tantrums, while avoiding coherent solutions and ignoring the needs of the nation. And he thinks that voters won’t notice how absolutely insane that is. But like everything else, he’s pitifully wrong. And voters will make sure that he knows that in less than 100 days. Meanwhile, enjoy this video that puts Trump’s psychological maladies in perspective:

UPDATE I: Trump returned to Twitter to insure that everyone sees how sick he is. He tweeted that he’s canceling his trip to New York to throw out the first pitch at a Yankee game “Because of my strong focus on the China Virus.” When you’re finished laughing, he also tweeted that “The 2020 Election will be totally rigged if Mail-In Voting is allowed.” And finally he tweeted that citizens exercising their constitutional rights “are actually anarchists who hate our Country.” Each of these tweets are naked expressions of rabid fear. He knows he’s toast, and he can’t handle it.
UPDATE II: On Monday Trump hammered out another 67 tweets of which 61 were retweets, only 6 originals. Thirteen of the retweets promoted hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus cure despite abundant evidence that it is both ineffective and potentially harmful. A couple of the videos in those tweets were removed by Facebook and YouTube for sharing false information. Trump also retweeted 19 senators thanking them for passage of the NDAA – All Republicans. Thirty-six Democrats also voted for passage (84-14) who Trump didn’t bother to thank. Unmentioned was that Trump promised to veto this bill if it called for renaming military bases named for Confederate traitors – which it does.
