Nate Silver Tweet: Wait, so Trump not only rejects stimulus funds

Wait, so Trump not only rejects stimulus funds that would probably have helped his re-election chances, but *also* does so in a way to make sure that he personally will take blame for it?





I agree with him there.... The drugs have impair his judgement is sounding more likely by the day. But then, he never had good judgement to begin with.

15. It takes two to strike a deal...

...and, at this point, there’s absolutely no reason for Democrats to lift a finger to get anything passed, knowing he and his party will get the blame.

The only circumstance in which I could see a deal being struck would be if Trump gave Democrats everything they want – plus agree to withdraw the SCOTUS nomination until January.

Trump just threw the economy off the cliff.

I know, stock market does not equal economy.

But it’s reacting to the grenade he just threw at the already struggling economy.

then left and locked the door behind him.

The explosion and paint will hit everyone, and he thinks it won't hit him.

46. McConnell took advantage of this and hung Trump out to Dry. It's over.

McConnell is a monster, but he is very savvy politically.

Just one whisper in the deranged Killer Clown's ear and McConnell is snuggling into his warm little security blankie.
Talk about political cover when it comes time for MoscowMitch to pay the piper in a few years.

And IMHO it also shows that Twitler's handlers have had it with him. All the way up to the top hand job man Putin. He will deliver them the Supreme Court. He is not needed any more.

I think Trump is going to say that unless he wins you won't get a dime until Biden is in office, so vote for him or wait 3 extra months.

It's a massive mistake.

"Vote for me and you'll get your check" (with my name written all over it, like it's MY money). "If you vote for Joe Biden you get squat" (except for a responsible and capable leader).

12. He wants to lower vote percentage to cause a greater constitutional crisis when he steals it.

Imagine if it's a blowout by 70% to 30% with Biden winning and Trump still steals it.

Remember this was never about Trump being a good leader, it was all meant by Putin to sew confusion and internal fighting in the US.

They desperately want people to take to the streets and riot, and the main way that will happen is if it is so shocking that we literally have to stand up.

Rushmore, your name and face on all our currency, a going away benefit of 1 trillion dollars yearly retirement, you get to keep Air Force One with staff and crew, etc. etc. etc.

I think Trump thought it's good and McConnell just cheer him on while laughing in his head about how stupid the guy is. Trump isn't the type of guy that will take one for the team. It has to be his own idea.

On Americans. I guess his supporters are not affected by the broken economy and will still vote for him. If I supported a President who made this announcement I wold think twice about voting for them again. But I guess the cult members like the suffering of others and themselves if they are affected.
