Doctor says ‘pathetic’ Trump is either suffering from ‘incurable madness’ or he’s intentionally trying to manipulate Americans

An MSNBC panel couldn’t help but note how “pathetic” President Donald Trump is demanding that he be popular and as well-liked as Dr. Anthony Fauci is in his daily press conference Tuesday.

Responding to it on her Wednesday show, Wallace showed a clip of Trump whining, “woe is me.”

“As the mother of an 8-year-old, this is conduct reprehensible in small children,” she said after showing the clip. “And it is so unbecoming of our country’s leader. I don’t even know what to say about it, but the idea that he can’t wrap his brain around the fact that Fauci has public support because Fauci is viewed as being motivated by the public good is the piece that I feel endangers all of us.”

Dr. Irwin Redlener, the director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness, explained that Trump’s “self-pitying” is “pathetic” and “incomprehensible.”

It’s “a side of him we really haven’t quite seen before, but what we’re dealing with,” Dr. Redlener said. “If you combine that with his statements on the hydroxychloroquine, we either have a case of really incurable madness or some sort of intentional manipulation of public opinion around some absolutely dishonest statements about the effect of hydroxychloroquine added to the pantheon of untrue statements that the president has made for, you know, since the beginning of all of this. I can only imagine, and maybe this is some sort of twisted logic in trying to create some image that will help him in November for his re-election. I just don’t see how that all works. And he’s looking increasingly unstable. And the promotion of this pitiful recurrent, you know, imagination is just one of many. I don’t know how they’ll create a narrative around COVID in November, but I suppose they’ll keep trying.”

John Oliver explains how Dems can bring the pain to Mitch McConnell — even if he wins re-election

Published

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver returned to his Sunday show, fresh off of an Emmy win, to explain how the United States got so incredibly f*cked up.

Oliver began by remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and noting that her seat will be taken over by a far-right conservative justice who will unmake healthcare, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights and more things Americans have indicated they want.

He played a clip of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claiming that America is a "center-right" country, which Oliver called outright "bullsh*t." Not only do Americans overwhelming support reproductive freedom, they also support LGBTQ equality. At the same time, Americans also believe, overwhelmingly, that President Donald Trump shouldn't be allowed to appoint the next justice.

"The disgusting, personal attacks from Democrats and disgruntled RINOs have gone too far, and they should be ashamed of themselves for what they've done to this man and his family," said Trump campaign’s communications director Tim Murtaugh.

Former Army prosecutor explains why Trump will ‘get laughed out of court’ if he tries to steal the election

Published

Democrats are still panicking about the plots that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party seem to be cooking up to circumvent the people's vote in November.

Last week's shocking piece in The Atlantic detailed how electors in Pennsylvania could be manipulated to deliver Trump the vote despite ballots to the contrary. After President George W. Bush's campaign convincing the Supreme Court to stop Florida from counting the 2000 election ballots, there is a fear that Trump too could manipulate the courts to get his Supreme Court justices to deliver him a win.
