Based on his social media posts last night and this morning, Donald Trump went into today expecting to be convicted in his criminal trial. Based on the questions that the jury asked during deliberations today, which strongly suggest that he will indeed be convicted, Trump appears to have snapped entirely.

Trump announced tonight that “I don’t even know what the charges are!” Wow is that ever a dumb thing to say. We understand the point he’s trying to make – the one that his babysitters told him to go out and make – which is that the criminal charges against him are complex. But what Trump ended up saying was the direct equivalent of “I have no idea what’s even going on around me!”

Those are bad words for Trump to be putting into his own mouth at a time when questions are mounting about his cognitive abilities and dementia-like symptoms. He already thinks Biden is Obama and Haley is Pelosi. Now he’s saying has no idea what’s going on in his criminal trial? Trump just keeps admitting he’s senile. It’s just a question of when the media is going to start properly talking about it.
