According to an Axios report, President Donald Trump’s debate strategy is to try and play up that he’s a tough guy compared to former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump dodged the draft by claiming to have “bone spurs,” refuses to release his taxes out of fear, acts like a puppy beside Vladimir Putin, exchanges love letters with Kim Jong Un and deploys name-calling as a diplomacy strategy. He’s spent four years only being willing to stand up to those weaker than him.

“I’m sure the president will throw everything he can at (Biden). My guess is that they’re preparing for that — bombarding him with insults and weird digressions,” said former Biden and Obama aide Jay Carney.

Meanwhile, Trump’s team says he’s been testing his attack lines at campaign rallies for weeks to see what his supporters respond to most. If his rally attendees are his sounding board, that could mean Trump will be looking to start chants of “lock him up” for President Obama and claim that COVID-19 is over and everything is going well.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave Democrats every justification to expand the Supreme Court.

The "Morning Joe" host -- an ex-Republican -- said Democrats should throw McConnell's words back in his face to make the case for expanding the court if they retake the majority, after Republicans brazenly violated their own precedent to ram through Amy Coney Barrett.

"I love watching stuff like this," Scarborough said. "This is, like, do I need some popcorn? No, I'll tell you why. Every word that Mitch McConnell -- every single word -- and if Democrats have half a brain, and if they're not wimps, they will actually lift that speech word for word and use it when they expand the court to 11 or 12 justices."

Trump ‘is in a state of panic’ as he sees ‘the walls closing in’: MSNBC’s Heilemann

During an MSNBC discussion of the curious choices Donald Trump's campaign is making about his rally locations, "Morning Joe" regular John Heilemann stated the president "is in a panic" and can't think straight --even more than normal -- because he knows he's losing badly.

With only seven days ago, the president has been holding two to three rallies per day, which led "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough to ask Heileman if there is a strategy behind the choices the president is making.

"I think the president's in a state of panic," the MSNBC regular asserted. "I think that's the only real answer and I think you see things like -- you guys pointed to in the last hour when you talk about Trump being up in New Hampshire is good example of that kind of panic."

With withering poll numbers and a flip of control of the Senate ever more likely, Donald Trump may be preparing to end Radical Republican rule with one last big bang—a war in South America.

For over a year now, our country has been quietly building forces near Venezuela, a nation with a leftist regime that this country has long sought to upend. Just last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a whirlwind three-day tour of Venezuela’s neighboring countries:
