Donald Trump has rabies. It’s the only logical conclusion that’s left. Now that the economy is imploding, he’s not getting his wall, the government is shutting down, he’s facing mounting felony counts, and he’s on the verge of ouster, a rabid animal must have coincidentally snuck in the White House and bit him. That’s the only way to explain why he’s now tweeting less like peak Trump, and more like a raccoon got to him. No, really.
I’m not even sure where to start. For instance there’s this gem from Donald Trump this morning: “The Democrats are trying to belittle the concept of a Wall, calling it old fashioned. The fact is there is nothing else’s that will work, and that has been true for thousands of years. It’s like the wheel, there is nothing better. I know tech better than anyone, & technology.” What are some of these words even supposed to mean? The words “nothing else’s” don’t go together in any context. And now Trump thinks he’s great at technology? He doesn’t even know how an umbrella works.
Then there’s the part where Trump tweeted that House Republicans “flew back to Washington from all parts of the World” just to hold the vote. Where does he think some of these members of Congress live? Moscow? Well, come to think of it, perhaps some of them do. There’s also the part where Trump announced that “Ronald Reagan tried for 8 years to build a Border Wall, or Fence.” Wait, a wall or a fence? He doesn’t know which? He thinks they’re the same thing?
Finally, Donald Trump took his rabid meltdown to a whole new level when he tweeted “I’ve done more damage to ISIS than all recent presidents….not even close!” Numerous people replied that Trump misspelled “USA” in his tweet. Let be real here. These tweets are over the top even by Trump’s standards. Something is off. He’s completely snapped after everything that’s happened this week. Either that or he really does have rabies.
