He has been diagnosed.


Yeah, he is not overweight - he is the height and weight of a pro-bowl linebacker.

Having the BMI of a pro football defensive line player is clinical team obesity unless you’ve got the low body fat to back it up. And KFC’s most famous customer doesn’t have that.


Height of a cornerback and weight of an offensive lineman is probably closer to the truth


ok, he's the height of a corner back and the weight of an offensive lineman giving a cornerback a piggy back

It's why he's trying to tempt Joe out.

Trump managed to win in 2016 because people so many people voted against Clinton. As long as Joe stays out of the way, people will not vote against him.

At the stage, Trump can only gain by Biden coming out and being a public figure who can be attacked.

Voted against Clinton and for Trump, or voted against Clinton and for Stein (ignoring for a moment the number of votes for Stein Vs Johnson)? And were either of those problems actually as big as the lower voter turnout period?

The anti-Clintonness would have manifested itself in not voting, voting third party (third parties did well in 2016) or voting Trump, either as general protest or a vote for changing something... anything!

More people who identified as Democrat voted for Trump than people who identified as Republican voted for Clinton. And surveys of peoples attitudes showed that more people thought that Trump was unsuited to be president than they did Clinton, but more of the people who thought that he was unsuited voted for him anyway. I don't have the figures to hand, but something like 40% of people who thought that Trump was unsuited to be President or didn't have the temperament for the job voted for him anyway. That figure was FAR lower for Clinton - something like 10%.

It seemed that a lot of people held their nose and voted Trump because they didn't want Clinton, or because they didn't think he would win. Now he has a record in politics (and an extraordinary record of failure at that) he no longer has the advantage of being a protest vote or a hail mary vote. He has to run based on his performance, rather than his rhetoric.

Interesting that both candidates again have quite high unfavourable ratings, and both have a high proportion of those in the seriously dislike category.

Trump is still seen as better on the economy, but he doesn't seem able to grapple with the idea that Covid and the economy are interlinked and merely wants to shift focus from to the other, and that's playing out really badly

One major advantage he has is the fanaticism of his supporters. They love him and will do anything to vote for him, because he's persuaded them that it's an existential crisis if they don't. And conservatives are more triggered by that. Liberals are less fear-focussed and even if they talk a big game when it comes to existential threats they are less likely to act on it (witness the fanatical Bernie supporters failing to turn out in droves in the Primaries).

If Trump makes voting as difficult as possible, then it is more likely to hit Biden than it is Trump. He bets that his supporters will endure more to be able to vote than Biden supporters will (he's liked, but not loved) and he would not necessarily be wrong that the people who passionately hate him will be more easy dissuaded than the people who passionate love him. After all, many of them aren't that enamoured with Biden either, and also - being liberals - are less triggered by fear and existential threats than conservatives (and especially the authoritarian conservatives and the religiously motivated who make up his base).

When is the last time Trump produced a meaningful sentence unscripted in real time? His TV interviews are a crash course in word salad. The man used to be reasonably articulate. Biden's the same. You don't need to be a psychiatrist to see when someone's in serious mental decline.


"Look at these hands. Are they small hands?" March 2016.
Probably unscripted.

Trump openly calling for a delay to the election :?

https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/sta ... 58273?s=21

What's the reality of that, I assume that's ultimately not his decision to make?

People said we were deranged when we said he would side with neo-nazis

People said we were deranged when we said he would side with Putin and other dictators

People said we were deranged when we said he would use the office to openly make money for his private business

People said we were deranged when we said he would not not relinquish the office...

There's probably someone who knows a hell of a lot more than me about consitutional law, but I saw something a while back saying that even if the election was delayed, Trump and Pence's terms come to an end regardless and a president is appointed by congress. Anyone know if that's right?

However he'll resist that anyway, obvs.

Lending support to extreme groups ..... tick

Open corruption in office ..... tick

Sending in paramilitary forces gainst the wishes of state governors, mayors and local police ..... tick

Trying to suspend democracy ..... tick

Certainly starting to smell of fascism. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

And already I've seen Trumpists on Twitter pointing out that the question mark at the end meant that he was just proposing an idea for the American people to consider, rather than being a deranged wannabe dictator. Because he has no actual power to do this.

Slightly off-topic, I stumbled across this just now - an old article from The Onion from Jan 2001.

Remember, they are supposed to be satire rather than creepily accurate.

https://politics.theonion.com/bush-our- ... 1819565882

Quote:
WASHINGTON, DC–Mere days from assuming the presidency and closing the door on eight years of Bill Clinton, president-elect George W. Bush assured the nation in a televised address Tuesday that "our long national nightmare of peace and prosperity is finally over."

"My fellow Americans," Bush said, "at long last, we have reached the end of the dark period in American history that will come to be known as the Clinton Era, eight long years characterized by unprecedented economic expansion, a sharp decrease in crime, and sustained peace overseas. The time has come to put all of that behind us."

Bush swore to do "everything in [his] power" to undo the damage wrought by Clinton's two terms in office, including selling off the national parks to developers, going into massive debt to develop expensive and impractical weapons technologies, and passing sweeping budget cuts that drive the mentally ill out of hospitals and onto the street.

During the 40-minute speech, Bush also promised to bring an end to the severe war drought that plagued the nation under Clinton, assuring citizens that the U.S. will engage in at least one Gulf War-level armed conflict in the next four years.

"You better believe we're going to mix it up with somebody at some point during my administration," said Bush, who plans a 250 percent boost in military spending. "Unlike my predecessor, I am fully committed to putting soldiers in battle situations. Otherwise, what is the point of even having a military?"

On the economic side, Bush vowed to bring back economic stagnation by implementing substantial tax cuts, which would lead to a recession, which would necessitate a tax hike, which would lead to a drop in consumer spending, which would lead to layoffs, which would deepen the recession even further.

Wall Street responded strongly to the Bush speech, with the Dow Jones industrial fluctuating wildly before closing at an 18-month low. The NASDAQ composite index, rattled by a gloomy outlook for tech stocks in 2001, also fell sharply, losing 4.4 percent of its total value between 3 p.m. and the closing bell.

Asked for comment about the cooling technology sector, Bush said: "That's hardly my area of expertise."

Turning to the subject of the environment, Bush said he will do whatever it takes to undo the tremendous damage not done by the Clinton Administration to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He assured citizens that he will follow through on his campaign promise to open the 1.5 million acre refuge's coastal plain to oil drilling. As a sign of his commitment to bringing about a change in the environment, he pointed to his choice of Gale Norton for Secretary of the Interior. Norton, Bush noted, has "extensive experience" fighting environmental causes, working as a lobbyist for lead-paint manufacturers and as an attorney for loggers and miners, in addition to suing the EPA to overturn clean-air standards.

Bush had equally high praise for Attorney General nominee John Ashcroft, whom he praised as "a tireless champion in the battle to protect a woman's right to give birth."

"Soon, with John Ashcroft's help, we will move out of the Dark Ages and into a more enlightened time when a woman will be free to think long and hard before trying to fight her way past throngs of protesters blocking her entrance to an abortion clinic," Bush said. "We as a nation can look forward to lots and lots of babies."

Continued Bush: "John Ashcroft will be invaluable in healing the terrible wedge President Clinton drove between church and state."

The speech was met with overwhelming approval from Republican leaders.

"Finally, the horrific misrule of the Democrats has been brought to a close," House Majority Leader Dennis Hastert (R-IL) told reporters. "Under Bush, we can all look forward to military aggression, deregulation of dangerous, greedy industries, and the defunding of vital domestic social-service programs upon which millions depend. Mercifully, we can now say goodbye to the awful nightmare that was Clinton's America."

"For years, I tirelessly preached the message that Clinton must be stopped," conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said. "And yet, in 1996, the American public failed to heed my urgent warnings, re-electing Clinton despite the fact that the nation was prosperous and at peace under his regime. But now, thank God, that's all done with. Once again, we will enjoy mounting debt, jingoism, nuclear paranoia, mass deficit, and a massive military build-up."

An overwhelming 49.9 percent of Americans responded enthusiastically to the Bush speech.

"After eight years of relatively sane fiscal policy under the Democrats, we have reached a point where, just a few weeks ago, President Clinton said that the national debt could be paid off by as early as 2012," Rahway, NJ, machinist and father of three Bud Crandall said. "That's not the kind of world I want my children to grow up in."

"You have no idea what it's like to be black and enfranchised," said Marlon Hastings, one of thousands of Miami-Dade County residents whose votes were not counted in the 2000 presidential election. "George W. Bush understands the pain of enfranchisement, and ever since Election Day, he has fought tirelessly to make sure it never happens to my people again."

Bush concluded his speech on a note of healing and redemption.

"We as a people must stand united, banding together to tear this nation in two," Bush said. "Much work lies ahead of us: The gap between the rich and the poor may be wide, be there's much more widening left to do. We must squander our nation's hard-won budget surplus on tax breaks for the wealthiest 15 percent. And, on the foreign front, we must find an enemy and defeat it."

"The insanity is over," Bush said. "After a long, dark night of peace and stability, the sun is finally rising again over America. We look forward to a bright new dawn not seen since the glory days of my dad."

Biden will need to win big to get Trump out of the Whitehouse, I feel.

Trump already has a cushion of around anestimated 5 million and squeezing Biden's support further by restricting voting under the guise of the pandemic, but if the final result is anything but unequivocal, it would be entirely in character for Trump to refuse to acknowledge defeat.

Of course, the emoluments clause has stopped him from enriching himself from his presidency, the 4th amendment has ensured that protesters haven't been snatched off the streets and he definitely hasn't tried to use powers that are those of the state governors :roll:

The fact that he hasn't got the power to do something hasn't stopped him trying so far.

Barr was asked that exact question 2 days ago. His answer: " I am not sure, I have never been asked that before. I would need to look into it". So not quite as clear cut as you think. He did however mention he doubts it as it is mandated to be the Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

Certainly starting to smell of fascism. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.


Santa: You people see ducks everywhere! The duck-billed platypus has a duck bill; are you saying that's a duck too? Geese walk a lot like ducks; are you calling them all ducks? You weaken the word 'duck' by calling every animal that has any duckish characteristics a duck. Basically, the way you use it, the word 'duck' no longer has any meaning!

Duck: *quacks like a duck*

Santa: Shhhhh.... you're not helping!

I do wonder if the fact that the economy just dropped 32.9% in Q2 has anything to do with these outbursts.

A victim from Trump's mask-less Tulsa campaign rally?

Herman "999" Cain dead from Covid-19. And I see that everyone's favorite reactionary congressman, Louie "you are a liar" Gohmert has the 'rona too. Although he claims it is the mask wot done it.

As they say Louie, Karma's a bitch.

It's more than passing strange the visible decline in Trump's physical & mental condition isn't getting more mainstream press attention. His issues with the ramp & water bottle at the West Point graduation got a bit of coverage for a day or two but that was about it.

Remember in 2016 when HRC had a coughing fit ascribed to pneumonia and a week or so later stumbled while getting into a van? We had headlines like this in the Washington Post: Hillary Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign; and similar reports all over the MSN for weeks.

Yet here we have a man transparently deteriorating in body and mind. He struggles to balance, rocks back & lurches forward before settling into his strange forward leaning stance, is starting to drag his foot behind him, has involuntary, jerks, spasms & clear motor skills issues. Lately he's been reading words without modulation as if oblivious to their meaning. Any number of credible professionals have pointed out symptoms of frontotemporal decline and hundreds more have warned of his unique basket of pathologies and psychological instability going back to 2017.

And it's getting worse before our eyes, yet there is very little attention given to this. It's quite baffling.

Isn't the forward leaning stance because he wears risers in his shoes the appear taller?


Yeah. Doesn't mean he's not demented as well, but the high heels (and being obese) are also why he can't walk steadily downhill.

I haven't read any of your fullas' posts on this - I have a pretty good idea what they will say - but has anyone described it as attempting to delay the election yet? :lol:


If he tried, who would stop him?

who has stopped him from doing all the other illegal shit that he has done?

Just saw this news about Cain - was he really at the Tulsa rally? If he was I bet we will see a moment of reflection and contrition from Trump as he realises the mistakes he has made and seeks forgiveness for them.

fudge Gohmert, he is a proper cockwomble (not that I want him to die - just to have a bit of an unpleasant time of it for a week or two).

Poor old Satan, laboring under the misconception that there are posters posting who think Trump has the power to delay the 2020 election. Fücktard indeed.

We all know, well apart from wee Satan, that Trump knows that he is fücked and made his tweet to:

1) distract from the historical 33% contraction in the US economy

2) distract from the fact that Herman Cain, who attended Trump's Tulsa gig and who tested positive for SARS-Cov2 a week later, died today from Covid-19

3) lay the ground work for an excuse if he loses the 2020 election.

The later goes to his thinking on what he thinks his real chances are.

Perhaps they’re here to ‘enforce’ the 12th Amendment

Speaking of troops & amendments, you gotta be amused at the behaviour of the dedicated 2A nutters who are all about the need to protect themselves from govt tyranny.

Bunch of overweight, unfit cosplay soldiers who mobilise in force with AR-15s & rocket launchers to bully unarmed public servants when they can't go to the cheesecake factory. But when unidentified federal paramilitaries start hauling citizens into unmarked vans these brave & beardy patriots shit their camo pants from many miles away.
