As Trump rages, open defiance of him is mounting. Here are 7 examples.

In a revealing aside, President Trump told chief propagandist Sean Hannity on Thursday night that he traces much of the overwhelming enthusiasm for his reelection now sweeping the country back to his Mount Rushmore speech commemorating Independence Day.

“Since that time, it’s been really something," Trump told Hannity, before raging that fake polls are deliberately obscuring the mighty depth and reach of his support.

In that speech, Trump offered his canonical statement on the unleashing of federal law enforcement into cities, conflating protests against police brutality and systemic racism with a “far-left fascism” out to “take” our “national heritage” away from the “American people.”

At around the time Trump appeared on “Hannity,” all four Major League Baseball teams playing Opening Day games took a knee in solidarity with Black Lives Matter before the national anthem, flatly defying Trump’s relentless disparaging of the protests, and more broadly, the vision outlined in that speech.

In all kinds of ways, Trump’s depiction of this national moment, as enshrined in that speech, is losing its grip on the country. In some cases, Trump’s own officials are defying his efforts to carry that depiction to the authoritarian climax he so craves.

2. Moron is blind to everything but his own crap show. Everyone else is moving on, ignoring him,

dealing w/ the CV epidemic, dealing w/ their unemployed, dealing with the idiotic edicts pumped out endlessly by the PINO. He seems to be only interested in saving the fat a&&es that illegally enhanced his campaign w/ the Russians (and then compounded the crime by lying to the FBI repeatedly).

Moron is on a death spiral with his campaign, totally oblivious to everything else. What's new? He is so incompetent that it's becoming more and more obvious that he doesn't know what he's doing, at any moment.
