Is Donald in His Final Descent?

NY Times

From P.M. Carpenter:

[The photo above] is a kind of political mugshot I ran across the other day; it’s the most telling portrait I’ve yet seen of the brooding, exhausted, smoldering paranoid who haunts the White House, plagues the world, and offends every conscience of decency.

Here is a spent man, a physical wreck and psychic monstrosity — the shattered embodiment of yearslong corruption. Far from being the man of vigor he promised on the campaign trail, he is broken shell. And far from being the man who would make America great again, he’s only reversing the greatness of his predecessor.

Poetic Justice

Vlad the Comedian

We think we know why Putin always seems to be smilin’—
He uses sarcasm and humor on Trump to beguile him.
And his latest jest
Is surely one of his best —
He’s offering Jim Comey political asylum!

More Trust Comey Than Trump

45% to 32%

“Voters have greater faith in former FBI Director James Comey to tell the truth than in President Donald Trump, who has disputed the veracity of Comey’s sworn testimony before a Senate committee last week. A new Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted in the days following Comey’s appearance before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, 45% of voters said they trust Comey more to tell the truth, compared to 32% for Trump. Twenty-three percent have no opinion.”

Scarborough: ‘Trump Doesn’t Know Anything’

“Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about policy. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about politics. Donald Trump doesn’t know anything about anything. He can get up and give a good speech. You listen to him talk about any topic and he wanders from sentence to sentence to sentence. So Steve Bannon is now the President of the United States. And that was more clear yesterday than ever before.”

— “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough, quoted by Mediaite.

Donald Trump put his innate douche-iness on display on the world stage last week at the NATO Summit in Brussels, when he was caught on camera shoving the prime minister of Montenegro out of his way. The ugly moment when he put a hand on the prime minister to move him out of his way was followed by an even uglier moment when Donald moved to the front of the group and then stuck his chin out in a show of dominance a la Mussolini, the fascist Italian dictator known as “Il Duce.”

It’s more than perfect that Il Douche, the wannabe autocrat, channeled Il Duce, history’s most famous fascist.

Quinnipiac Finds Donald’s Approval at 36%, Sees Signs of Erosion of Support Among His Base Voters

chart-quinnipiac-trump-approval-36-percent

Reality may be started to permeate the Fox bubble. The new Quinnipiac Poll has Donald’s approval at 36 percent, which is in the range where former Pres. George W. Bush’s approval rating sank and then stalled for the last three years of his second term — making him the most unpopular president in the history of presidential polling.

Donald Trump appears to be giving Bush a run for his money.

The signal that reality is setting in — that Trump voters may finally be starting to realize that they’ve been had — is in the internals. In particular, Donald has seen a ten-point drop in support among white voters with no college degrees, from 57 percent in April to 47 percent now.

According to Quinnipiac, support for Donald is also eroding among independent voters and white men:

If Donald Trump learned American history at Trump University, he should sue himself for malpractice. In an interview on SiriusXM with Salena Zito, a reporter for the right-wing Washington Examiner, Trump asserted that Pres. Andrew Jackson questioned the necessity of the Civil War.

“He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War,” Donald claimed. “He said, ‘There’s no reason for this.’”

Of course, Jackson died in 1845, 16 years before the Civil War began.
