Man, his twitter rant is just epic today. So much insane stupidity. This seems like textbook NPD. I saw NPD-diagnosed clients who weren't nearly as obvious as this. Might be time to reevaluate the Goldwater-rule in Trump's case.

It's Melania Trump's birthday today too, apparently. What a broken man.

It's interesting he is bashing Fox News for reporting "fake news" from the "lamestream media". Axios claims he's even steering the faithful to an alternative site instead. I'm sure his criticism does not include folks like Sean Hannity. Still. You'd think the President would have bigger issues on his mind at the moment.

A regular, non-brain-damaged person would think his latest comments would be the final straw for his base, but the GOP base isn't rational. If you can adequately justify Trump suggesting an injection of disinfectant to fight COVID-19 and accept it as no big deal, you don't have the sense to be persuaded by rational thought.

Large swaths of this country are insane.

He had a weird rant today about how journalists need to give their "Noble" prizes back, and the "Noble" committee needed to act now. When it was pointed out that not only did he spell "nobel" wrong, but journalists don't get nobel prizes, he deleted the tweets. Then he tweeeted that he was being sarcastic. Again with the sarcasm defense. Instead of pleading sarcasm after the fact, he should do some research BEFORE he talks/tweets.

So Trump suggests we inject ourselves with disinfectant and sunlight to kill coronavirus.
Maybe we should dig up Josef Mengele and see if he thinks it'll work.

Just into today's post-pouting briefing. He's being coached. You can see it. Probably best to wait until it's over to comment but it's clear as day he's being coached.

I just have to say that the little bags they put in bags of jerky to keep it dry that have the warning "DO NOT EAT THIS" always struck me as silly and unnecessary. Who would be dumb enough to eat that?

Now I realize it's probably the most relevant message a Trump supporter will get in any given day.

Some Schmo, "Now I realize it's probably the most relevant message a Trump supporter will get in any given day."

You mean Trump asking if nukes could stop a hurricane, or raking leaves prevents forest fires, or suggesting "windmills" (turbines) cause cancer, or that climate change is a Chinese hoax, or making anti-vaxxer statements, or... lessee... that Obama was born in Kenya, or he'd run into a school unarmed to stop a school shooting, or... what else... something about a moat with alligators at the border isn't relevant?

Huh. Well. In case anyone forgets a short list from Google on "relevant" comments Trump supporters don't seem to mind:

"Women, you have to treat them like ____."

"Nobody respects women more than I do."

"Nobody loves the bible more than me."

"There’s nobody that’s done so much for equality as I have"

"Nobody’s ever been more successful than me."

"There's nobody bigger or better at the military than I am."

"Nobody in the history of this country has ever known so much about infrastructure as Donald Trump."

"Nobody knows more about trade than me"

“Nobody knows more about taxes than I do, maybe in the history of the world.”

“I know more about renewables than any human being on earth.”

"I know tech better than anyone"

"This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important."

"Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure, it's not your fault"

“I’m very highly educated. I know words; I have the best words.”

"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart"

"I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"

"I am the chosen one."

"I think I'm much more humble than you would understand."

I mean, ____. Who wouldn't vote for a guy like that?

Well sure, all of those a relevant comments. I'm just saying that given the level of sophistication we're dealing with, not eating things marked poison is probably among the most immediately important massages a Trump supporter will read in any given day, given their willingness to live in a world where common sense is optional.

Of course, this relies on two assumptions which may be unfair:

- Trump supporters read
- Trump supporters follow sound advice

So, ya know, it's only relevant to the extent those two things are true.

I guess what I'm really saying is that I always wondered who those "DO NOT EAT" messages were written for, and now I know it's for Trump's base.

Dumb comments, amiright?
The short version is that the former VP’s son received millions in Chinese investments, was placed on the board of a Chinese company, and was involved with several figures current being targeted by the FBI.

When asked whether those things would pose a risk to his campaign, this was the elder Biden’s answer:

JOE BIDEN: "My son's business dealings [in China] were not anything what everybody that he's talking about, not even remotely, number one."

Last night Brian Williams owned Mike Pence.

Pence's excuse for not wearing a mask at the Mayo Clinic was because he wanted to be able to respectfully look the doctors in the eyes.

Williams said, "Instructions for our audience. If the mask on your face impairs your vision, you're doing it wrong."

I know right. I have to wonder if they're all just giant ____ or if they think WE are the giant ____. In any case, Pence is simply kissing Trump's self-serving propagandic ass.

Yesterday Trump told a journalist that we will not only be testing 5 million people per day, but we're going to surpass that.

Today he spent five minutes insisting he never said anything about 5 million tests.

Something he just said yesterday. On video.

After Katie Miller, Pence's press secretary, tested positive for Covid-19.

"This is why the whole concept of tests aren't necessarily great," the president continued. "The tests are perfect, but something can happen between a test where it's good and then something happens and all of the sudden. She was tested very recently and tested negative, and then today I guess for some reason she tested positive."

:lol:

All those doctors who said Trump really understands this stuff are probably retracting their statements.

Trump has to have set the record for the most fame to idiocy ratio. No person as famous as he is can be this ____ stupid. He's the most stunning example of Dunning-Kruger I've ever seen.

Just listen to this from where it begins (hopefully I did that right) for about 2 minutes. It should start around 15:23. What's wrong with his speech there? I haven't finished watching the whole briefing. Does he get tired when he reads big words or something?

Trump called into Fox&Friends on Mother's Day. At the end of the interview, Trump is asked the mother of all softball questions:
Fox wrote:This Sunday is Mother's Day. What are your plans? What are you gonna do for Melania and do you have a message for all the moms that are watching this morning?
Here is Trump's message to all the Moms:
Well, we'll be together. I'm going to a Camp David meeting — a big meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Camp David is this very special place that nobody ever gets to see but it's a great work environment. And we're going to have meetings on different things.

And we're going to have meetings on different things, and our military has never looked better. It's never been better. We've never had the kind of equipment that we have now.

And we had planes that were 50 years old, and more. Fighter jets — now we have the best in the world, the F-35 and the F-18, and you know, what we have is incredible.

The equipment and the people we have are great, but you know, they have to have equipment.

And we spent $1.5 trillion — really, more than that. And we've totally rebuilt our military, which you have to do. You know, I'm a very budget-conscious person. But you have to do.

The nice thing is — it's all built in the USA. And plenty of equipment coming. Lot of this equipment is coming. So it's very important that we have the best military and we have the... our military has never been in condition like it is now and soon will be.
So Happy Mother's Trump Day.

How do you read that question and answer and not come away with grave concerns about the most powerful man in the world? A response that is totally untethered to a softball question.

I've come to the conclusion that Trump's had an undetected stroke at some point. It's like his brain just lost the regular flow of blood one day, and it felt like any other day to him.

President Trump: "We're going after Virginia, with your crazy governor, we're going after Virginia. They want to take your Second Amendment. You know that, right? You'll have nobody guarding your potatoes."
Craziness like this is music to the ears of Ajax, Subgenius, Alex Jones, and Franklin Graham. They know they are listening to a man who thinks like them. A Potemkin Village of scarecrows all armed with 12 gauge shotguns is needed. That way the potatoes can get some shuteye at night.

Trump knows all about the perils of letting your guard down. He left his potatoes unguarded years ago, and now look at him.

Sorry. That was an unreasonable request. Nobody needs to see him. You're better off checking your stool after a dump.
