ROFL.

I think it's more than that but I had to stop there to let you know this important information.

He knows he lost, he just didn't want to give up his power.

Delusional in most cases - psychotic in a few.

He knows he's jeopardizing public safety by agitating them, and couldn't care less.

We are all just collateral damage in his quest for power and wealth.

He is putting this country, democracy, Americans in harm's way every day, and it means nothing.

Actually I think he quite enjoys his power to make others suffer.
Gets off on it.

The winter of '24/'25 promises to be an interesting one - but then, all great democracies have gone through these crises.

May it be brief, bloodless - and with a happy ending.

The GOP is full of corrupt politicians, sociopaths like Trump.

They want power and wealth and will stop at nothing to get it.

In every case, historically, where a fascist took over a democratic country, Big Business/Upper-Crust support was key.

The oligarchs also want access to US financial assets. They bribe corrupt politicians so their theft of the US Treasury is perfectly legal.

He was enjoying watching COPS GETTING BEATEN ON JAN. 6.
It probably got him off.

Trump particularly relishes people trapped and suffering with no escape. Also likes violence and death.

This makes him feel power and important.

"Hearsay is inadmissible at trial, which means that a witness cannot quote what someone outside the courtroom said."

There are exceptions, but I didn't look at them. 😛
