Well, Trump has always been a stupid, offensive jerk with more powers of projection than every shuttered cineplex combined and multiplied by infinity. So, day ending in d-a-y and all of that, but I do think the president of Red America is becoming more unhinged by the hour:

Maybe he’s just mad because Senator Harris started off the debate like this, “Thank you Susan. Well, the American people have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country.” But back to this day that ends with a d-a-y and Trump’s lunatic interview/primal scream this morning with fawning sycophant Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business. CNN:
“She’s a communist. She’s not a socialist, she’s well beyond a socialist,” he said, going on to make false, fear-mongering claims that Harris wants to “open up the borders to allow killers and murderers and rapists to pour into our country.”
Left unanswered were the many open questions about Trump’s condition, which weren’t asked by his pliant interviewer. He did not address what his lung scans showed, didn’t say when he last tested negative and wasn’t asked how high his temperature reached at the end of last week, when he was airlifted to Walter Reed.
Instead he sought to paint himself the picture of health.
“I’m back because I am a perfect physical specimen and I’m extremely young. And so I’m lucky in that way,” Trump said. Trump, at 74, is clinically obese and has known heart issues.
As absurd as that is, maybe that wasn’t even the craziest part, fellow citizens:
He listed three senior members of his administration who he said have displeased him, for different reasons. Some, such as FBI Director Christopher Wray, have irritated Trump for months. But his criticism of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was new.
“I’m not happy about him, for that,” Trump said of his top diplomat for not surfacing emails he says were deleted by his 2016 rival Hillary Clinton. He also went after Attorney General William Barr, who he said would go down in history as “a sad situation” if he doesn’t prosecute Trump’s political rivals.
“Bill has got to move,” he said, suggesting time was running short for his administration officials to use their offices to go after his opponents.
Trump also declared himself no longer contagious and vowed to get back on the campaign trail next week. He’s nuts. None of the cowardly assholes around him will step up and put a stop to this dangerous farce.
Election Day is 25 days away. If, FSM willing, Biden wins convincingly, we’ll still be stuck with a humiliated nutcase in the White House until noon on January 20. I don’t mind admitting that worries me, but this is the best case scenario, so I guess we’ll have to buckle up.
