The police scanner has been interesting

There have been numerous incidents, one in particular: a person or persons impersonating the Secret Service who could produce no credentials when asked. Also, some early preparation for VP Pence. Sounds like he might be arriving early, although it's hard to tell from the police traffic exactly what the situation is.

"When you're right, you're right, and you're right."

J. J. Gittes, Chinatown

In the summer if 1944, when Hitler's health noticeably deteriorated,

he drastically curtailed public appearances and let Speer and Himmler take over as the public face of Nazi-ism. Trump doesn't know any better. The whole Trump Thing is riding on him alone, and he's under intense pressure.

Now, Dr. Bandy Lee says Trump won't "break down". But I hope she's wrong.

I don't know about the number of debates.

If I were advising Biden, I'd coach him to talk past Trump and directly to the audience, and to speak of Trump in the third person unless the debate rules specified otherwise. Almost like he's speaking about the coronavirus.

I think Trump is bluffing about wanting four debates. I'll be surprised if he does two.

The Deplorables might not read such a book, but...

if your ideas could be reduced to a series of ads, some of it might sink in.

About a month ago Howard Stern directly addressed the Deplorables in his audience (and they are there) when he told them that Trump despises them, and that if they were to go to Mar-A-Lago they wouldn't see anyone who looks like them. Then he told them that he hopes they drink bleach and die.

I'd leave that last part out, but essentially let them know that Trump hates their guts and would be embarrassed to be seen with them in public.

And all this time we thought Pompeo was a "true believer"

From the NYT:

Mr. Trump did not seem to know, for example, that Britain is a nuclear power and asked if Finland is part of Russia, Mr. Bolton writes. He came closer to withdrawing the United States from NATO than previously known. Even top advisers who position themselves as unswervingly loyal mock him behind his back. During Mr. Trump’s 2018 meeting with North Korea’s leader, according to the book, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slipped Mr. Bolton a note disparaging the president, saying, “He is so full of shit.”

Be still my heart

It is a withering portrait of a president ignorant of even basic facts about the world, susceptible to transparent flattery by authoritarian leaders manipulating him and prone to false statements, foul-mouthed eruptions and snap decisions that aides try to manage or reverse.

Worthwhile article.

We'd be foolish beyond belief not to use the mounting evidence of physical and psychological impairments against this president, just as he will attempt to use far, far less evidence against our candidate. I imagine the Lincoln Project or Mike Bloomberg could do something with this. And it's not like this is the only article. There are hundreds of articles by doctors and psychiatrists (all reputable) making this case.

It does, completely.

Republicans are trying to amass as much money and power as possible before society breaks down from global warming (which they secretly believe in but don't want others to believe in) and civil unrest. They think they can "ride it out" while the rest of the world destroys itself.
