President Donald Trump insisted — in all capital letters — that he was “entitled” to ask for another four-year term as repayment for a debunked conspiracy theory he revived weeks ahead of the election.
The president announced Tuesday night during a marathon Twitter spree that he had declassified documents he claims will prove a conspiracy involving President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and intelligence officials to spy on his campaign — and the next day demanded four more years.
“NOW THAT THE RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS GOT CAUGHT COLD IN THE (NON) FRIENDLY TRANSFER OF GOVERNMENT,” he tweeted, “IN FACT, THEY SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN AND WENT FOR A COUP, WE ARE ENTITLED TO ASK THE VOTERS FOR FOUR MORE YEARS. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS WHEN YOU VOTE!”

It’s not clear whether the president was seeking an unconstitutional third term, an automatic second term or simply more votes in the Nov. 3 election.

The dexamethasone you’re on is giving us the best comic relief in ages. Win.

Switch to decaf?

It's good that none of us can tell if the president is having a mental breakdown or a manic response to his covid treatment or if this is his normal state.

The medication you are on is causing illusions this is crazy. Nobody is trying to take over the government. You are not entitled to four more years.

The question is what will they give him to adjust for the crash when he ends the course of dexamethasone?

Am all for you getting four or more years in Federal housing, but just not in the White House.

I don't know of any polling that has been done on the subject, but the pool of voters who were going to vote for Biden but were all like "You know what? Trump deserves a mulligan because of the Mueller investigation" seems pretty small. https://t.co/KTBz76bs49
