Trump Accidentally Tells the Truth About Himself

Mish

Trump is on another amusing Tweetstorm today with predictions and an ironic truth about himself.

Trump's Predictions 

  1. Very good third quarter
  2. Great fourth quarter
  3. One of our best ever years in 2021

Federal reserve is wrong. That is the truth, but Trump is certainly no better. 

Ironic Truth 

THOSE THAT DENY THEIR HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT!

There is no one in bigger denial of who he is, what he has accomplished, and what he actually stands for that Donald Trump.

Unfortunately, we all have to suffer through it.

Trump Doubles Down on Stupidity

Yesterday, Trump Demands CNN Apologize for a Poll Showing Biden in the Lead.

What Do Other Polls Say?

Presidential Approval Polls June 12

Six different pollsters all say the same thing. 

Of course Trump supporters will say the polls were wrong in 2016. And they were, by about 2 percentage points not 11.

And it was vs. a despised Hillary, and it took a last second switch from Comey to boot. 

T Minus 5 and Counting

OK there are still five months to go. 

But the deeper Trump sinks, the harder it will be for him to recover. 

What About Fox news?

Fox News Polls June 12

The four most recent Fox News Polls listed on FiveThirtyEight look like this:

  1. Biden +9 in Wisconsin
  2. Biden +2 in Ohio
  3. Biden +4 in arizona
  4. Democrat Kelly is a whopping +13 in the Arizona Senate race.

Republicans should be very worried about this: THOSE THAT DENY THEIR HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT!

For those who have always wondered if they could predict the future by knowing the past, all you have to do is take one look at that superficial, automatic, babied little snake to know that, yes, I can predict the future .. with the Donald at least ....

Trump barely squeaked out a victory in 2016 losing the popular vote and barely winning Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. I don't see him getting as lucky this year, especially when you note the Democratic base looks mad as hell.

Trump should have spent less time being divisive on Twitter and playing the victim card and more time leading and building a larger base. He didn't. He's about to be embarrassed. I can't wait to see his tweets if we learn he is the loser to Biden.

I have said before that I don't do social media, but for shits and giggles I do like to read the comments sections of places like Politico where they use Facebook feeds on their stories and I will also click-through and read Twitter or Facebook threads I find in news stories that look like they might seem interesting to me. At least those they will let me read without an account...

Based on what I've been seeing lately, the levels of narcissism, ignorance, selfishness, stubbornness, and a total and complete disregard for anyone other than themselves; coupled with a complete lack of understanding, open-mindedness, or willingness to listen to others' opinions - and tolerate them even though you may not agree with them - on ALL sides - are approaching critical mass.

Individuals add people they agree with, delete or ignore people they don't, and soon they end up an a positive feedback loop echo-chamber safe space that contains other people who do nothing but validate their own thoughts and feelings a thousand times a day. They become an electronic mob; and at this point, they have coalesced into two distinct electronic mobs - both of which are continuously fed by self-serving media outlets and politicians at every level for fun, power, and profit.

Given that, I am going to predict that it no longer matters who wins. Things are going to come apart at the seams either way.

Got popcorn?

Trump is going to try to suspend the election. I've written this a few times and he is now in the early stages of using government apparatus to do this. What we saw in Georgia with voters essentially being told they can't vote is the beginning. We will see that in select states where Trump is behind but needs to win like he did in 2016. I don't think he will leave the White House peacefully come January 2021 should Biden be declared the victor. We are headed for an unprecedented time in the US, which is still a young country by global measures. These things have to have sometimes and they will in 2020/2021.

The gates are open now that Trump was able to violate the Posse Comitatus Act by using federal troops (federalized out-state National Guard units in DC) to enforce domestic policies within the United States. See the generals try to back away now from their actions. There's still time before the election to ensure die-hard loyalists in the Pentagon chain of command.

Trump has cojones for invoking "drain the swamp" after the first term he's had. Seems he would have been better off playing victim by citing Mueller and Covid-19 as reasons why he was unable to fulfill MAGA promises.

Claiming success makes him look as crazy as Biden, but at least Joe has a medical excuse for being feeble-minded.

What hasn't been swampy?

he's sold ambassadorships (Gordon Sondland a donor , Lana Marks club member at Mar-a-lago), he's sold access( Lewnadowski and Giuliani)
his cabinet spends lavishly on desk furniture(Carson) and engages in lavish use of corporate jets(Mnuchin, Pruitt). Trump even promotes his properties while in office attempting to have the G7 hosted at Doral while foreign leaders and lobbyists seem to think they 'll get a better ear if they stay at Trump DC's post office hotel

Trump's even tailored policy or attempted to do so to appease donors requiring utilities to purchase coal(Robert E Murray) which failed and an attempted ban on imported Saudi crude which also failed (Harold Hamm)

And using his private attorney to get a foreign nation to target his political rival and using aid as a lever. Very very swampy.

When Trump says drain the swamp he means something entirely different but based on any legitimate and classical definition he's very much the swamp

As far as great quarter, year. Trump still thinks he's selling condos. It's nothing but puffery and during his more frank moments he readily admits it

Trump and Biden are two old men of average IQ, they both don't understand the severity of the reality and still think that disneyworld is for real .
Anyway we live in an era where stupidity is the norm provided that such stupidity generate money and power.

As I wrote here some years before, it was pure madness of Trump to take over at around 70 the presidency of a country (like most others, including European ones) in such an unstable financial shape . Of course I know that he was accustomed with bankruptcies trough his personal business life experiences.
Nevertheless vanity, (or too much emotional beliefs and low IQ ) is a standard cause of stupidity.
It was a no brainer that there was no way back from a final disaster (which has not yet happened) given the gigantic size of debts and blown up bubbles absolutely necessary for keeping alive a gigantic boosting wealth effect on GDP.
So Trump only speaks about bubbles they will try to re-inflate on a larger scale by printing money whatever the side effects will be.

If I were an American, I would nevertheless choose the conservative side, because over here in Europe we know what the backdrops of communist economies are as the governments spend and control together with our public healthcare system about 70 per cent of most countries annual incomes.

A few months ago I commented Trump might want to (legally, it can be done via Congress) change the date of the election allegedly due to Covid-19 safety concerns. Our host said it was impossible, and I admit it's improbable, though not impossible. It seems Biden agrees with me. - RL

(CNN)Joe Biden said Wednesday night that he believes if President Donald Trump loses the election and refuses to leave the White House, many of the former generals who used to work for him "will escort him from the White House with great dispatch."
The comments, which Biden made in an interview with Trevor Noah on "The Daily Show," are not the first time that the former vice president -- and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee -- has suggested that he believes the incumbent may well seek to fiddle with the election results.
"Mark my words I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held," Biden said in April.

BTW, McSally is the GOP candidate.
I Think her main qualification is that she fits the Johnny Bravo suit (which, as it turns out, is empty) and this is why she is way behind in the polls.

You are telling me that 5 months before the election in 2016 Trump was only behind by 2 percentage points? C'mon Mish!
