Not exactly. He's "speaking it into existence". I don't think he believes half of what he says. But he says what he feels will advance the agenda. And part of the agenda right now is preemptively dirtying the election because he knows he won't win.

Trump very obviously has some level of antisocial personality disorder. He is more on the psychopathic side, in that it's very clear he has no conscience. He tries to emulate other people enough that he appears "normal" generally, but he has no moral qualms at all about doing what he feels is in his best interest regardless of who it hurts. He lacks empathy, and has zero regard for others, again a psychopath tendency.
As the son of 2 mental health professionals, I hate armchair diagnosing. But Trump just makes it so easy...

I'm sure there's been talk earlier in the thread, but I'm lazy, who are people feeling for Biden's VP pick?

I've liked Duckworth for awhile, think she has near bulletproof optics.

I like elizabeth warren but it appears to me that the candidate has to be a POC no matter what. Hell, warren might be too old to take over after bidens first term anyway

Here's the thing, a lot of the hyperbolic **** PJF has been spewing has kernels of truth. Biden is far from a perfect candidate, and I'd rather have almost anyone else either side could produce instead. But going against Trump this is a stronger case for the lesser of 2 evils than I think I have seen in a long time. Even more than in 2016 when we just really didn't know how evil and destructive Trump would be. So I'd rather have Biden over Trump, even if he's a doddering old fool with Alzheimer's and dementia than Trump at his best. But I'd take damn near anyone else over the both of them.

Holy **** does our politics suck. Have we reached an all-time low? Can't be far off.

" Donald Trump is a psychologically broken, embittered, and deeply unhappy man. He is so gripped by his grievances, such a prisoner of his resentments, that even the most benevolent question from an interviewer—what good parts of your presidency would you like to be remembered for?—trigger(s) a gusher of discontent.

... Such a disposition in almost anyone else—a teacher, a tax accountant, a CEO, a cab driver, a reality-television star—would be unfortunate enough.

...[But] Donald Trump isn’t a teacher, a tax accountant, or (any longer) a reality-television star; he is, by virtue of the office he holds, in possession of unmatched power. The fact that he is devoid of any moral sensibilities or admirable human qualities—self-discipline, compassion, empathy, responsibility, courage, honesty, loyalty, prudence, temperance, a desire for justice—means he has no internal moral check; the question Is this the right thing to do? never enters his mind. As a result, he not only nurses his grievances; he acts on them. He lives to exact revenge, to watch his opponents suffer, to inflict pain on those who don’t bend before him. Even former war heroes who have died can’t escape his wrath. So Donald Trump is a vindictive man who also happens to be commander in chief and head of the executive branch, which includes the Justice Department, and there is no one around the president who will stand up to him. He has surrounded himself with lapdogs."

Man, did this article speak to me. Amazing writing, and the contrast between the character of Reagan and Trump is brilliant.
