Fox News doesn’t typically air Donald Trump’s “campaign” speeches anymore, because they don’t want their audience seeing just how bad Trump’s dementia symptoms have become. For some reason Fox News did begin airing Trump’s speech on Saturday, only to end up regretting it and pulling the plug.

After Trump went on a bender about sharks and batteries and snakes, made up several fake words, talked about taking his clothes off, and claimed that he keeps walking into walls, he then got lost while trying to tell a story about washing machines and water. At that point Fox News cut away from Trump mid-sentence and then tried to act like the whole thing never happened.

The more exposure Trump’s words get, the better. His base isn’t going to care how senile he’s become. But they don’t count because they’re already voting for him anyway and they can only vote once each. It’s the people outside Trump’s base whose minds can be changed. And each time they see Trump’s dementia on full display, they’re going to move further away from him.
