Donald Trump is fighting for his life. He’s on track to lose the election in two weeks, and if he does, he’ll lose his presidency, his assets, and his freedom, as he rots in prison for the rest of his miserable days. Even as Trump goes through the motions of campaigning, he keeps giving away how sorry he feels for himself as it all slips away.

On Tuesday evening, Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Erie, Pennsylvania. This is notable because Trump won Erie County in 2016, but now he’s clearly worried about losing it. Even though his approval rating has been lousy the entire time he’s been in office, and he’s been well behind Joe Biden in the polls for the entirety of this election cycle, Trump is trying to convince himself that he somehow had reelection sewn up until the coronavirus crisis happened.

During his speech, Trump openly whined about having to visit Erie, saying “I mean, I have to be honest: there’s no way I was coming. I didn’t have to.” Imagine standing in front of a crowd of people and asking them to vote for you, while also whining about how you didn’t want to have to come beg them for their votes. It’s not exactly an effective campaigning tool. It’s also just so sadly self-pitying. Let’s vote this guy out in record numbers on November 3rd!
