It's so funny when the media start paying attention.

It took Trump flipping out on that reporter yesterday for the candy ass media to finally start doing their jobs.

We've thought the media were going to finally start doing their jobs several times in the last 4 years, let's not assume that this time it's going to stick.

To be fair, given Donnie's track record, can we really tell when his decision making skills are impaired? This is a guy who lost money building a casino in Atlantic City and failed to sell Americans beef. His decision trees have been sketchy since publishing photos of him crushing on his barely teen-aged daughter. Well, a bit before that too, but really, the wheels haven't been connected to an axel for a while.

They should've been doing this the moment Trump came down that escalator.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they have to fellate Trump repeatedly because "RATINGS!"

I mean, that is their job. Ratings mean advertising money, which is all the media's owners care about. We have to stop expecting corporate media to do anything other than work to make money for the corporate owners. Any truth revealed in the execution of their journalists' jobs is purely accidental and likely detrimental to ownership's interests.

Well, we don't know about any changes in Donald Trump's eating habits, but, steroid-related or not, we've certainly seen signs of impaired decision-making.

How can something be impaired when it was never ... paired(?) ... to begin with?

Ya none of those actions seem out of line with his actions over the past 4 years. 'Can impair' does not mean 'will impair' and it really looks like Trump continued with the stellar leadership decisions he's showed previously.

The drug angle is just another attempt to say it's not really his fault, so go ahead and vote for him.

Worth mentioning that when T took office his team wasn't exactly the "A" team, but there were some folks who were certainly B or C-level. Competent, even it they weren't the shining stars of their respective fields. At this point, however, turnover has been such that most of the campaign team isn't even deserving of a letter grade. The pros will certainly show up and take consultation fees to give recommendations, but the Trump team basically can't do anything that's not directly from Trump, and even if they wanted to they lack the capabilities to execute most of what they need to do to rein in the campaign.

Those of you who like to think of Trump as a businessman will note that we are reaching the point in his traditional business cycle where he cuts his losses, declares bankruptcy, and screws over everybody else who is stupid enough to work with him.

It is terrifying that it is a close as it is. Most of the polls are within the margin of error. All it takes is slightly more enthusiastic turnout by Trump supporters, and only a few points less by democratic (or specifically black and latino voters) and a lot of state fall into Trump's column. IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS CLOSE. This should be a landslide of epic proportions. Not because Biden is some great candidate, but because it is clear that Donald Trump is woefully out of his depth, unwilling to lear from anything, devoid of empathy and completely driven by his own narcissistic ego. I know I'm stating the obvious, but I don't get it. I don't understand the appeal or the devotion.

Perhaps the bus is pulling the wagon? Or maybe the wagon was pulling the bus, so you can toss him from the wagon under the bus?

Suppose two wagons pulled the bus together.

My understanding is that people support Trump because he sticks it to the dirty, lying, socialist libs.

Years of Foxnews right-wing nutjob propaganda has turned one third of American voters into brainwashed followers.
 
2020-10-20 11:24:35 AM  
With only two weeks to go, the wheels are coming off Trump's campaign wagon. And all of his problems are self-inflicted.

Mentioned by others above, but I'm not sure this sentiment is accurate.  Just because the scales fell from the reporters eyes in the last few weeks doesn't mean Trump hasn't always been self-destructive, impulsive and stupid.  You can blame steroids if you want but he's always been an arsehole.

Oh voter turn out is going to be an issue.... For Obama... -like margins of victory.

Right now, it blows my mind to know almost half of the people who voted in 2016 have already voted in NC. I really don't anticipate many registered independents eagerly avoiding lines to vote for Trump, so it may already be a 3 to 1 lead for Biden. I realize that Republicans tend to show well on election day, but I am finally becoming optimistic.

The Republicans have been so greedy that their entire strategy is core constituents and voter suppression. Even Mitch McConnell will have a serious challenge if NON LIKELY voters show up.

I keep thinking he's simply running out the clock while inciting more and more rage with his base. This makes me think he knows he is going to win or is going to refuse to lose and is set up for a power grab.

I concede its possible that almost half a million North Carolinians are either Republicans that moved here or just so dang inspired by Trump they decided to vote for him this time even though they didn't vote for him last time.

I'm becoming cautiously optimistic that North Carolina moderates and minorities had enough of Trumps bullshiat. I am really hoping Cunningham will ride the wave in.
