One side's guy marched across Lafayette Park then brandished a Bible. But from the looks of it, the Book must have burned his tiny little hands. Some preacher he is. Maybe like on the cancelled TV show.

I think Trump might be in some form of unstable state right now. One moment he wants to attack Iran, the next he wants to leave Coalition allies in the lurch by just withdrawing all troops instantly from Afghanistan.

I'm thinking that he's too upset about losing to think clearly.

Woah now buddy, that one's not fair. Roll the tape back a solid ten seconds (or wait another minute and a half after) and The Donald makes it clear that he isn't talking about white supremacists or Neo-Nazis.

He's suffering from power withdrawal, aka the symptoms an authoritarian usually gets when he's unseated by the people. Getting high on power for 4 years has certainly gotten to his brain.

The man has been ill for years. People should feel bad for mocking him; but people who put him in a spotlight for all to see him make a fool of himself and subsequently encourage him to continue are the true sadists.

The same is true for Biden btw.

We all remember when Donald claimed that it was wrong to close travel to and from China. Oh wait, no that was Joe Biden.

This whole myth that Trump fucked the coronavirus response is stupid. No, Dem mayor's fucked Coronavirus response and then used Trump as an excuse.

Frankly they're lucky Trump is as even handed as he is.
