Now that Donald Trump presents as fully senile every time he attempts to speak in public, his handlers appear to be trying to compensate for it by ghost writing coherent social media posts for him. They keep ramping up the aggressiveness and offensiveness of his posts, seemingly to try to make sure the narrative is “Trump is a fascist” instead of “Trump is senile.”
But Trump’s babysitters are getting awfully defensive about it, and they’re doing what Trump used to do back when his brain still functioned: they’re projecting. Trump’s Truth Social page now bears this post: “Biden calls on a specific reporter, gets a question, then reads the answer off a card. In other words, he knows the question, then reads the answer. What is going on here?”
That didn’t actually happen, of course. But Trump’s coddlers are now so concerned about Trump’s increasingly obvious senility, they’re reduced to making up fake stories about President Biden supposedly being senile. This comes as Trump can’t so much as participate in a primary debate, because his senility in the face of adversaries would finish him off immediately.
