What was left of Donald Trump’s cognitive state appears to have been finally, fully shattered by the plea deals that Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro have cut against him. Trump is attempting to put on a brave face in public today, but so far he’s said he’s going to prison like Nelson Mandela, and gotten distracted by the spelling of a two letter word.
Now Trump is on an almost indescribably bizarre bender about how he fantasizes about punching President Joe Biden in the face, so that he can prove to everyone that Biden’s nose is fake. No really, this happened. There’s just so much to unpack here, and yet so little.
For starters, now that Trump understands that his life is over and he’s spending the rest of his days in prison, his fantasies are becoming more violent. But it’s important to remember that this doesn’t mean Trump now has some magical “violence” powers over us. If anything, this is a sign that Trump knows he’s more powerless than ever.
It’s also the most clear cut proof yet that Donald Trump is fully cognitively incompetent. His handlers sent him out there to portray himself as a political candidate and distract everyone from the fact that he’s a criminal defendant. So what did Trump do? Talked about how he’s going to prison, shared his fantasies about personal violence, and then got lost in a conspiracy about the President having a fake nose.
Keep talking, Donald. Sooner or later the media is going to have to admit that you’re completely senile – and that’s going to put an end to your political relevance even quicker than your criminal trials can.
