But it's swinging back and forth over his neck like a pendulum.

I don't think it helps him on the election.

The mere fact that he's so enraged in itself achieves so much, because he makes mistakes when he's this angry.

+1



If we were smart, we'd totally use talking points like this instead of dismissing them, regardless of their unlikeliness.

"Steve Schmidt needs his own show"



Right now on MSNBC:

"He is unfit mentally.

He is unfit physically.

He is unfit intellectually....

He has desecrated his office..."

I could listen to him all day!!!!

...

My dad always said he was traumatized by that movie. There were three movies that

traumatized him.

Bambi (when he was really young)
Psycho
The Exorcist (If he couldn't take Bambi, he probably should have known better than to see that one)

Beautifully put:

They don't want criticism or their financial bottom line harmed by their own speech.

What we're experiencing reminds me of that scene in Network in which

Max Schumacher (William Holden) finally gets through to Diana Christenson (Faye Dunaway) and tells her, "You're madness, Diana. You're television incarnate."

In a way that is what Trump has become: Media incarnate.

Responsibility shifting

Once they confronted him, he invoked Trump--his savior hero--and instead of saying "I'm going to..." he threw it to his idol, "Trump is going to..." Like, "My Daddy is going to come back tonight and beat you up because I can't, i'm just a small little shit-for-brains. But My Daddy will fix it all. He's all-powerful!"

These people are extreme cowards who follow Trump because they think he grants them power. They are all miserable failures. Confront them and many of them just collapse on the spot.

We did know this but it's always good to have further corroboration

Sources: Fire and Fury and the NYT (fairly recently, too, although it added in that he spends one hour a day on the phone with governors.)

He also goes to bed very early (around six pm) to watch Fox News, eat and use an unsecured cellular phone to call "friends."

Fascinating!

She corroborates much of what is written in Dangerous Case but also asserts he does not meet the technical definition of "delusional," which is an issue that's been debated since Trump took office. Her book could settle a number of important unresolved issues, such as the proverbial: "Does he know he's lying or does he believe what he's saying is true?"

Her claim he didn't expect or want to win was first asserted in Fire and Fury. This is so interesting.

I really can't wait to get my copy.

Call me naive, I have total faith in Mike Bloomberg

He's the guy who, on his own initiative, flew to Paris to meet Macron and personally pay the $15 M United States' Paris Accord dues the day after Trump announced he would pull us out.
