Trump now says he wants to hold the election earlier.

https://www.salon.com/2020/07/31/one-day-after-trump-floats-delaying-the-election-he-suggests-moving-it-up-instead_partner/

President Donald Trump suggested moving up the Nov. 3 election one day after suggesting a delay.

The president floated the delay Thursday after devastating economic news came out, and NBC's Peter Alexander asked why the Trump administration devote more attention to safeguarding the election from illness and potential fraud.

"Peter, you know nothing about my energy," Trump said. "You know nothing about what I'm doing. You know nothing about what I do."

He insisted the delay had nothing to do with poll after poll showing him falling further behind Joe Biden.

"We're going to do very well in the election," Trump said. "Nobody wants that date more than me. I wish we would move it up, OK? Move it up. But you're not prepared for what they're doing."

3. He's so desperate to change the topic from his own failings.

And he's failing at that too. What a failure. Failed. Fail. Trump.

20. Or...

They have and he keeps calling pooty so pooty* can tell him something different so he can justify his claims. He loves the thrill of hiding behind secrets so the , "you don't know..." thing is all he has to say. But he's also telling us that they believe they have the rigging in place so whatever day is good, get it over with cause I'm going to win.

6. I knew it! It's all Peter Alexander's fault

... for asking such stupid, obvious question. So there, Peter Alexander. Now I'm going to get even by moving the election UP. Are you happy now?

Moving the election up? Did anyone ask what the above statement means? No.

He's babbling more that usual lately, but often says exactly what he means as he babbles. Hmm.

11. Hey, Trump!

That's a great idea! Let's move the election up to this coming Tuesday. Then let's move up the inauguration to this coming Wednesday!

We've had more than enough of your bullshit.

12. The "You know nothing" defense.

I have encountered this one before when I have called out a Cluster B-disordered person. It’s a desperation defense. It’s true. I don’t know what the babbling idiot is thinking or doing, but the babbling idiot isn’t saying what he is thinking or doing, either, and that’s because the babbling idiot isn’t thinking or doing ANYTHING, so responds aggressively with this “You know nothing about ...” defense. If you get a Cluster B-disordered person to this point, he or she is on the ropes—in full attack mode—cornered and dangerous.

18. small mind

He only says the antithesis of his previous comment when he realizes how dumb his comment was. His own party had to point out to him that it was a dumb comment. And by saying the antithesis, it is a complete bluff statement. Liar doesn't want to move up the date, he still wants to postpone the election date for 4 years.

19. Yes please.

I will walk to my polling place right this minute. I will work the front door, and the desk, disinfect all the tables, provide paper and pencil,Check everyone’s IDs, count every vote, and bring donuts,. Yes please let’s do it today, now now now now now now. And then we can inaugurate Joe a week later. And that would still not be soon enough to suit me.

23. tRUMP is going to thrash, whine, bounce off the walls, incite any revolt, etc. etc.

Before he finally realizes that his only way out is to resign and have Pence pardon him for his entire life. In two years he will be seen sitting in a lawn chair in Florida at a run down bedbug infested resort jabbering incoherent crap that nobody can decipher. At night, his DVR will play recordings of Hearings and Fux Newz and he will be seen yelling vile obscenities at the TV, like it was real time and his opinion meant anything, like when he was pResident. They will keep bringing him cans of ice cold Diet Coke spiked with tranquilizers just to keep him manageable.
