Earlier this week, Donald Trump and his surrogates launched the strategy of basically letting millions of elderly Americans die so the economy could be restarted sooner. This wasn’t just homicidal, it was also political suicide, as Trump needs elderly Fox News viewers to turn out and vote for him to have any chance in November. Now he’s made it even worse.
Today Trump settled upon a new strategy: murder as many people in Michigan as possible, because he doesn’t like the state’s governor. Perhaps he hasn’t thought this one through either, because he really needs to win Michigan in November in order to have any chance.
Now tonight ABC News is reporting that Donald Trump called up baseball star Alex Rodriguez and asked him for advice on how to deal with the coronavirus crisis. Moreover, Trump appears to have leaked the fact that he asked for A-Rod’s advice. In rapid fashion, Trump’s reelection strategy has gone from murdering his base, to murdering people in a swing state, to… A-Rod? This all suggests that Trump is every bit as senile as he is psychopathic.
