Now that his fourth arrest has taken place, his first mugshot has taken place, and the trial date for his third arrest has been set for well before the election, Donald Trump is rapidly losing what little might have been left of his mind. He just goes on and on, ranting and raving on his own failed social network – and now he’s giving away just how far removed from reality he’s drifting.
At one point on Friday night Trump asked this bizarre question: “Is there anyone on the Planet that doesn’t know what I look like?” Don’t worry, it doesn’t make any more sense in context. Then he went on to claim that as a result of his latest arrest, his poll numbers now have him beating President Biden in a “landslide” in 2024. To be clear, no such numbers exist.
But this serves to give away what Donald Trump’s babysitters are feeding him in order to keep him sated on his way down. Each time what’s left of his life gets ground up even further into mush by the criminal justice system, Trump’s handlers tell him a tall tale about how it’s magically made him more powerful and popular than ever.
It’s probably the only thing that’s keeping Trump from crawling under his desk and giving up entirely. It’s also a clear sign that he’s 100% finished. When someone is in the fight of their life and resorts to delusional fantasies about how it’s all going to magically work out, it means they’re not really bothering to fight the battles they need to fight. At this rate Trump’s eagerness to give up fighting and retreat into a fantasy world might finish him off more quickly than any trials can.
