Which current polling indicates will happen. I would so enjoy watching the secret service going into the Oval Office and pinning the cuffs on Donny and escorting him out if he tries to refuse to leave.

Trying to quash mail in ballots in the midst of the current pandemic could/should backfire on him. I imagine the current polls have the little boy peeing in his pants.

I try to make the point to MAGAheads that it's the right of every registered voter to vote by mail. An absentee ballot is a vote by mail. And in a majority of the country you can ask for and absentee ballot without having to give a reason.

Trump's base would benefit from absentee voting as much as Biden's. But he has to try and suppress the vote somehow. The more people vote the bigger chances he loses.

Technically what he's raging against is Universal Mail-In voting. In mostly western Democratic states, you get the mail-in ballot sent to you automatically. You don't even have to ask for it. There's no indication that's happening in the states that matter. A voter who doesn't want to deal with election day during a pandemic still has to request a ballot.

And if I was an American in one of these Battleground states, I'd be asking for one last month. Because you know it'll get delayed somehow.

His own people are now stepping up to push back against his latest idea of delaying the vote date. I guess even they have come to realize how inappropriate that scheme is and how it's only some sort of last ditch hale Mary effort to hope the polls will shift in his favor. He's losing his marbles which is, I'd say, indicated in part by his ever increasing contradictions  of himself. i'm sure November can't come soon enough to sensible Americans.

It's a distraction, he knows he can't delay anything. 

He didn't go to pay respects to John Lewis and he knew Obama would have all the attention yesterday so he made a spectacle again and made it all about him. 

Haven't we learned yet?

I believe he's more of a deceiver.  He knows enough to constantly steer the conversation to positive aspects of the data, after all.

If he were a moron he wouldn't be able to steer people to data that makes him ostensibly look better.  I don't think he's smart, but not a complete idiot.  Narcissist and stupid person sure.

He demonstrated narcissism numerous times today as he has done often, but one that especially struck me was his dismissal of John LEWIS AND NOT ATTENDING HIS FUNERAL SERVICE BY SIMPLY COMPLAINING THAT lEWIS HAD NOT ATTENDED HIS INAUGURATION.

He wasn't.  He had a bunch of graphs he was told showed favourable data but he could not in any way articulate what they said or why it was favourable. He just blathered on about how you can't compare total deaths with total population without explaining why.  I doubt he came up with the graphs himself, so Total Moron.

I think y'all are setting different standards for what makes someone smart.

Yes, academically, he's a complete imbecile. 

But what he lacks in mental aptitude he makes up for it with his sociopathic, narcissistic tendencies wherein he uses everyone for his personal gain and gets away with it by conning people into thinking he's smart.

As a society we don't often value traits like deceit so we think he's a moron, but let's face it, he's the master con-man.  You have to give him credit for that, even if it's a terrible trait to have.
