Sometimes I wonder if Trump WANTS the virus to continue.

It's seems so strange what he is doing in the face of an election. Maybe they haven't made enough on reselling PPE yet.

2. Trump thrives on chaos...

It's his natural state. He uses it as a distraction for his cons. If there is no chaos, he will create it.

4. This. And he never admits he's wrong. He cannot bring himself to say that he was wrong about it

from the beginning. To do so would admit his failure to mount an effective response earlier.

5. it's dismal

he literally sees covid numbers in terms of how it affects his "re"-election, not in terms of a national health crisis

6. I honestly think he believes democratic voters are dying.

I really believe that. I know it sounds wacky but he certainly has proven he has some weird thoughts. This one hes just never said. Yet.

10. What I Can't Fathom Is Why He Seems Intent On Killing HIS OWN VOTERS

When you know you're getting pummeled, it should be just common logic that you need as many of your fans to vote as possible. So why INSIST on no masks and no social distancing among your fans? Not at his little Klan rallies, not at his convention. Why kill off the few remaining people you KNOW will vote for you? I truly don't get it.

Some of the stuff I do get. Like re-opening the economy too soon, and insisting that schools re-open (parents can't go back to work unless their kids are in school). Those are last-second Hail Mary throws, rolling the dice on that 1% chance that the economy will recover in time to give him SOMETHING, ANYTHING to run on. Both have failed, but I at least understand his thinking behind them, even if I find it morally repugnant in every way (i.e. the ONLY priority I have is getting MYSELF re-elected, and if some of you little people have to die, so be it). The whole insistence on no masks and no social distancing among his followers (a move all but certain to kill off a percentage of HIS OWN voters) has me stumped.

11. After listening to

Rachel Maddow talk about the book with the reporter who received the tax info, it sounds like he does because he loves the cruelty... and it was also concluded that if he can't be king of the world, he'll burn it down to fuck everyone over because he doesn't care about anything else and will do such a thing in a tantrum.

I think the book is for the public, all government workers and politicians to understand what we're dealing with... as the author says, he lies for the pleasure of lying and having someone know that he is and getting away with it.

He needs to be removed from office immediately.

13. Oh wow. Great point about the book being an instruction manual on what we are dealing with.

12. Trump can't create anything, he can only destroy--much like an angry toddler.

.

He lives for deconstruction, regardless who or what it is. He is a destroyer of all that is good.
