And he's still being treated as the only viable candidate for 2024, because our media and 30% of our citizens think a constantly blaring Wurlitzer of flailing incompetent fascism is exciting.

Intelligence was not a strong point with Trump, in any sense of the word.

"The situation in the waning days of Trump's presidency was so uncommon that it actually caused concern among some administration officials that Trump was losing touch with reality"

And should Trump pass away before then (he is 75 years old right now) the GOP will kind of be screwed since they seem to be going all out for him. All of the voters who support Trump are still on his bandwagon about stolen elections and whatnot. Without him around, what do these voters rally around?

It's been a constant downward spiral of idiocy and incompetence from Nixon to Reagan to Bush to Trump. Which means the next Republican president will somehow have to be dumber and less knowledgeable about government than Trump. President Kid Rock is probably more likely than many of you would like to admit.

Sell? He bled current, exceedingly-classified information in casual conversation - as a dick swing - to our enemies. And it was actionable intelligence to them, as several operations saw immediate blowback due to getting compromised.

That was Kushner's gig. Trump doesn't have the attention span to read the PDB or the memory to remember it. Kushner reportedly read it every day once Trump gave him TS access. MbS got the list of dissenters in KSA from someone.

Frankly at the point it gets to the president's desk most of the sources and methods should have already been stripped out of it.

Basically it should be useless for picking individuals out, but helpful for meeting the president's RFI and IRs.

Marjorie Taylor Greene.  They'll run a woman and then, when every sane person is completely outraged, they'll accuse us of being 'woman racists' (someone will actually use that exact term), because that's the world we live in.  In the interest of an inclusive ticket, she'll choose Louie Gohmert as the first special needs VP.

We say TFG so we don't have to mention turdburgler's name.

They say Brandon as a codeword for F*** Biden.

Not equivalent.
