Putin’s Trump Puppet Melts Down in the Rose Garden
The pressure is getting to President Trump, and the chinks in his armor are showing. It’s as if he is becoming aware that 100K New Infections, 2K Deaths Daily maybe are just two weeks away. Rick Wilson, an anti-Trump Republican, described Trump’s performance as that of a ‘Drunk Uncle’ and as appearing ‘addled.’ Is our intellectual genius president cracking under the pressure of his many, many mistakes, failing poll numbers and his adoring public no where to be seen?
After watching President Trump’s agonizing helter skelter one hour plus speech in the Rose Garden yesterday, I found myself wondering if he was suffering a mental breakdown. I wasn’t alone. Rick Wilson, the ex-GOP strategist and Never Trump Conservative, had the same impression wrote in response to the rambling, disoriented speech in The Daily Beast that Trump sounded like a “Drunk Uncle” in this his latest press conference tirade…He wrote about the rambling…
“Like an addled necromancer with the heavy charnel stench of a dead campaign on him, Trump spent over an hour chanting the old incantations from an Eldritch Grimoire (The Dark Booke of Bannon, perhaps) only to find that nothing was working,” wrote Wilson. “Even his most devoted followers were eyeing the exits and wondering when some apprentice would step forward to lead him off gently off the stage for a rest and a posset of unicorn blood.”
President Trump converted a large portion of Tuesday’s press conference into a bizarre campaign rally to attack former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump suggested Biden would destroy the American way of life, which led some to suspect he had forced some White House staffers to violate the Hatch Act. The meltdown caused CNN and MSNBC to cut away from, the rant, refusing to cover the President’s often incoherent and disjointed spew of hate and misinformation.
Rick Wilson went on in his editorial in the Daily Beast…
“For the tiny minority of Trumphadis who still imagine there is some rational, considered version of Donald Trump lurking inside that hair helmet, what they saw Tuesday was a desperate candidate flailing, madly spewing agitprop that even a Tucker Carlson producer would stare at in awe of its madness.”
“Trump runs the entire campaign operation from his impulses and instincts. They can hire 5,000 people for his campaign effort, and not one of them can persuade or change him … Tuesday’s presser felt like Donald Trump seizing the reins of the campaign from Brad and Jared and baby daddy Jason Miller and getting back to the red-meat white-power themes he loved so well in 2016.”
“Trump was struggling Tuesday to reconnect to the grunting populism of his 2016 success. In it, he was never held to account no matter how much footsie he played with the alt-right and its media outlets of record,”
“Now, the feeling that the magic isn’t working and that that spell has finally failed isn’t wishful thinking on the part of the Never Trump movement.”
