If you missed Chris Wallace's interview with Trump on Fox News Sunday, it's worth looking for. 45 minutes of nonstop WTF moments.

"We won two world wars, beautiful world wars"

"Joe Biden doesn't even know he's alive!"

"If he gets elected, religion will be gone, life will be gone. . ."

Let’s make this simple and not copy the dogfucker, OK? Choose one of those and tell me why you think I am employing a strawman. Your track rate on these “cool kid” terms you pick up at the local Starbucks is pretty abysmal, Condi. “Strawman” does not mean “an argument I disagree with”.

Along with defunding the World Health Organisation. It's like shooting the doctor that's trying to help you.
And holding a rally during a pandemic.
And childishly criticising the chief virologist.
And suggestions of injecting disinfectant.
And generally throwing a massive strop because the virus is getting more attention.

And that's before you get onto other things Hillary Clinton wouldn't have done!

How about being literally incompetent in any speech and not being able to display any empathy, class, dignity or gravitas whatsoever. His only ability to use descriptive words at the level of grade 5, tremendous, wonderful, great, best ever, "bigly".

When asked to name a policy - it's "you will see" "we will roll out the greatest thing". and it never ever happens. Can do a photo op with Beans or a Pillow though.

Still waiting to see the details on the best healthcare system ever, that will be cheaper and better.
Still waiting to see the best, greatest tax returns ever.
Still waiting to see the "best" people in the WH - oh no they are fired every other week.
Still waiting to see Mexico pay for that wall. (Best was wall ever, a tremendous wall - that has not been built.).
Still waiting to see him even try to get Hillary locked up. Thought that was a definite. Funnily enough it's him that got impeached.
Still waiting to see the best economy ever. As if he could reverse the Reaganomics trickle down globalisation economy that has destroyed western manufacturing in the Anglo world in the name of short-term share profits. Thx Thatcher, Major, Howard etc etc.

Could go on but it's tiresome and boring to list the outright incompetency and grifting.

Thank you, Gustav. Of course, none of that really affects white male americans in their 60s, does it? So it’s quite understandable that they wouldn’t see that as anything of import.

Let me guess, Condi: you were the first kid in grade school to learn the word “faggot” and you then applied it to everything and everyone, indiscriminately, for the next 12 years.
