The Youtube presenter, who's a US military veteran, not happy that Trump is laying claim to government veteran bill that Obama signed.

Also Trump's habitual verbal spasm of saying Obama is still president:

"Putin you know has so little respect for Obama that he's starting to throw around the nuclear war. You heard that.
Nuclear. He's starting to talk nuclear weapons today."

Donald Trump was confused & unable to read at both campaign events this weekend

It is interesting having expert psychs who are no longer scared by having threats to their career hampered by speaking out.

The points Ive taken is Cognitive decline happens to all of us, mixing up a name or a date, is something we all do and not dementia/brain damage. The more important fact is a persons wisdom and political experience far outweighs mixing up some names etc because that wisdom will continue through cognitive speed decline.

It is far more evident listening to Psychiatrists, that a positive person in cog decline will remain doing so, also the fact being president is not a one man job makes some natural mild cognitive decline a non issue imo.

The real problem is the media have not covered the expert opinions (largely as most are afraid to speak out) on actual dementia and gone for the easy mistakes any human naturally can make. 

You cannot fit 5 mins of obvious real dementia into a headline. But one would hope the more the main networks, which are largely rubbish journalism, will start highlighting the irony of who is slurring, forgetting how to say basic words, stopping mid sentence and forgetting what it was, along with the heriditary nature of the disease, which is very very different from natural cognitive speed decline. 

For me the the issue of somebody controlling by threats is a very real attack on democracy itself. ie the creepy  speaker is doing what he is being told, trying to derail the effective border strategy by the Democrats that the vast majority of Repubs also support, just so the controlling entity can take the glory for implementing the bill is very disturbing.

Trump at a Christian Conference in Iowa.

Trump is doing a lot of snorting, like someone who has been using Adderall beforehand, but that's just my conjecture.

During Trumps rambling, the pastor he mentions is controversial. I have no doubt the pastor Peale certainly helped Trump along the path of narcissism. Peale had reduced God to a force and made Christianity self-centered rather than God-centered. He preached your thoughts were more important than reality.

Peale: "Who is God? Some theological being? He is so much greater than theology. God is vitality. God is life. God is energy. As you breathe God in, as you visualize His energy, you will be reenergized!"

Trump at conference

Presenter: "You used the word Christian. Have you ever asked God for forgiveness?

Trump, looking perplexed at a simple yes/no question, and stammers: "That's a tough question. I ... I don't think in terms of ... I have ... I'm ... I'm a religious person. Shockingly because people are so shocked when they find this out.

I'm Protestant. I love my church and Norman Vincent Peale. The great Norman Vincent Peale was was my pastor. [The book] "The Power of Positive Thinking." Everybody's heard of Norman Vincent Peale. He was so great. He would give a sermon you never wanted to leave.

Sometimes we have sermons and every once in a while we think about leaving a little early right even though we're Christian. Dr Norman Vincent Peale would give a sermon, would give a sermon. I'm telling you I still remember his sermons, it was unbelievable. What he would do is he'd bring real life situations, modern day situations, into the sermon and you you could listen to him all day long."

Presenter, a little annoyed. "But have you ever asked God for forgiveness?"

Trump: "I'm not sure I have. I just go and try and do a better job from there. I don't think so. I think I if I if I do something wrong I think I just try and make it right.

I don't bring God into that picture. I don't.

Now when I take you know when we go in church and and when I drink my little wine which is about the only wine I drink and have my little cracker I guess that's a form of asking for forgiveness.

I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed. Okay but uh you know to me that's important.

I do that but in terms of officially: I could I say I could say 'Absolutely' and everybody ... I don't think in terms of that ... I think in terms of let's go on and let's make it right."

Listening to the legal expert on Cohen's daily YT channel, whilst there are a handful or more of things that could happen, being on trial during election could be close to the worst/best outcome. Obviously them hurrying it up and convicting for many would be the best outcome.

I just can't see the leader of the free world (US) stating ex presidents are above the law that everybody else in a "democracy" must adhere too.

It's sort of like those American televangelists, who are all "Jesus loves me...but I'm not so sure about you..."

If Trump wins against Biden in November I will put the blame firmly on Biden. 

 

Virtually any other middle of the road Dem candidate would beat Trump easily.

SJB:

Like Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who refused to retire before dying, thereby allowing Trump instead of Obama to appoint a justice:

Proverbs 16:18, King James Version

"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall."

It should apply to Trump, but apparently doesn't work on psychopaths.

Oxford University: US Presidential candidates may be psychopaths – but that could be a good thing

A 2016 study of psychopathic traits by Oxford University psychologist discovers that Donald Trump ranks above Adolf Hitler and only just below Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein and Henry VIII. Hillary Clinton ranks between Napoleon and Nero.

Trump is not a surprise. Biden doesn't even rate on the psycho scale I guess.

Interesting opinion piece: despite winning most of Super Tuesday, Trump still has a pretty major general election problem.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the the same age as Trump. Both are looking a worse for wear.
