Donald Trump is sick with coronavirus and pneumonia, he’s holed up virtually alone in the White House, and he’s high on dexamethasone steroids that can cause mania and hallucinations. What could possibly go wrong? Right now Trump is reminding us of how many ways this can go wrong.

Trump has spent the day rage tweeting in short bursts, suggesting that he’s receiving his steroids, going on a brief rage bender, and then passing out again. Just now, Trump retweeted a conspiracy theorist named Paul Sperry twenty-one times in the span of a few minutes. That’s only the beginning of the problem.

At one point Sperry insisted that if a bunch of classified FBI and CIA documents are released, they’ll somehow prove that Donald Trump was framed for his role in the Trump-Russia election scandal. In response, Trump tweeted this: “I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!”

That’s right, Donald Trump – who is out of his mind with roid rage while taking mind-altering dexamethasone – is now threatening to begin releasing classified information. To be clear, these documents don’t exist, but Trump doesn’t know that. He’s that far gone tonight.
