He was pretty slick last night.  Being able to lie in the face of video proof is extraordinary.  No wonder people believe him; he is amazingly convincing with his performance.

So Iím supposed to believe the Trump knows more than the head of CDC about when a vaccine and how effective masks are?

Unless the US is sitting on 600 million doses of each of the of the leading vaccine candidates it is going to be a rolling distribution of the vaccine with likely only healthcare workers getting it in 2020. Why 600 million because all but one of the vaccines are going to be a series of 2 shots and they canít manufacture enough for 300 million people in 1 week. I mean my practice is worrying about running out of syringes to give flu shots.

Don't worry, he said on ABC that Coronavirus would go away because of herd mentality.

CBJ, you're supposed to believe Trumps knows more about everything than everyone. He's regularly stated he knows more about the military than the generals, the economy than leading economists, trade than anybody, etc.

It's classic, textbook narcissistic personality disorder, and potentially of the more dangerous malignant subtype.

The rule of thumb with Trump is that when he says he knows all about something, he knows nothing.  When he claims to know nothing, he knows a lot (and itís always very damaging to him).

It's difficult to decide which is more terrifying:  the level of Donald Trump's reality-impairment or the fact that his approval rating is still around 40%.  Rubes.

Deplorable didnít even begin to describe these people.   Itís going to be nauseating when everyone starts talking about unity and working together when Trump is out. F that. These people are horrible and there is nothing about the way they want to run the country that is worth considering.

Not for me. The latter is far more terrifying, since they are not going away after January.

Neither is Trump, unless he's dragged out by the hair.

Yeah, you're right.  Imagine if Trump were competent rather than a delusional imbecile.  Tucker Carlson.  Or Tom Cotton, maybe.

I think the Woodward tapes reveal that there's more calculation and less delusion there than most people credit.  Though there's certainly plenty of both.

Think that Trump perhaps is the greatest marketer of a target audience who ever lived.

Before Trump, I would have said PT Barnum, but not even close anymore. To be so great at this, one has to be calculated and skillful in reaching and convincing the audience in that targeted group. Trump is without peer at that.

Think he also is very aware of how the anti and non-Trumpers operate too. He doesnít bother to convince folks he knows are not his supporters. Doesnít care. But, he has a keen sense of what theyíre doing. And, he uses that to encourage his supportersó-of course with lies, gross exaggerations, slurs of all kinds. He is a master of playing to the fears of that targeted audience. Everybody has fears of some kind. Itís human nature.

Hoping that his targeted audience is going to be outnumbered in November by enough folks that donít fall for his act. But, this guy is a marketing genius at what he does.

I know he scares a lot of people, but Trump mostly bores me.  No ideas.  No point in listening to what he says since it's almost impossible to extract the few things that might be true.  He's a typical bully and an attention seeker.  Hopefully, he will soon go back to reality TV which is where he belongs.
