Trump FLOATED the idea of delaying the election to gauge interest in actually attempting to delay it

Stop and think about it for a moment.

That wasn't just some random impulsive tweet. He actually floated the idea to see if he would attract support for the idea. He had a plan. If his fellow GOPers would've supported the idea, he'd likely push for a real delay. Which of course would require congressional approval.

His tweet was meant to measure interest in delaying the election. It was a test to measure if the idea was popular with his party.

It went over like a lead balloon. It backfired on him spectacularly.

IF we think of it like this, we can better understand the gravity of that tweet.

Was does it mean?

Pres Pantrumpic has declared war on democracy.

I hope every Democratic campaign ad reminds voters of Pantrumpics wish to delay the election and his war on our right to vote his bloated orange ass out in Nov.

A man afraid of losing will seek to delay an election. A person who is confident about winning will welcome election day, like Joe.

Pantrumpic, the countdown to the end of your terrible presidency has begun.

Remind voters up until election day of Trump's pathetic attempt to delay the election.

1. Multifaceted. Certainly distracted from worst GDP in our history

Distracted from the fact that bounties were credible enough for us to warn Russia. Distracted from many things I canít even remember because I was distracted...!

But yeah, trial balloon, threat of endless litigation, or possibly a genuine plan in that conniving head of his.

4. Distract because at the same time he tweeted that, the GDP numbers came out down 1/3

So flash a shiny object at us to distract from the bad news.

3. He really can't delay the elecion but

It is another manuver to delegitimize it so he can try to create the kind of chaos after a loss to try to stay in office.

7. Freepers think Trump is just trolling us.

Many of them say no president has the authority to change the date of the election.

8. Yes, he does that a lot

You can never be sure if he is just reactively tweeting something that popped in his head or if he is floating a balloon to test the waters.
