The Grand Farewell Tour is… not as heartening as Lord Smallgloves and his minions expected:
Look Trump could still win but even the last hour of my Twitter feed give the impression of the wheels coming off his entire campaign. pic.twitter.com/3eNDHieoeI

In Erie, President Trump said that before the pandemic he was coasting to re-election and did not need to campaign. “There was no way I was coming to Erie. To be honest I didn’t have to. Then we got hit by the plague and we had to go back to work. Hello Erie!”

No complacency before November 3rd, etc etc, but this is *not* a man who believes he’s gonna win. So, if nothing else, you can take consolation in the fact that we’re making him miserable. More miserable.
"People of tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots,” Trump says in campaign call that has become a longish rant in which he is trying to deny he is at risk of losing this election.

Note: Trump was trailing in the polls to Biden since the race began, long before covid was a thing https://t.co/oOII9qVdwq

It’s always projection:

Going through Trump's rally transcripts from this weekend and even I am mildly impressed at how dishonest he was.

"There's something about that, when you watched everybody getting pushed around, there's some very beautiful about it. I don't care what anyone says. Not politically correct." — Trump describes the National Guard getting into physical altercations with protesters as "beautiful" pic.twitter.com/04ax2wWKra

Call me conservative, but I prefer Presidents who don’t have to flee the jurisdiction if they lose a re-election campaign.

Trump is spewing hate at his MI rally & admitting he will lose. He will be crying onstage b4 his delusional, grievance-fest campaign ends.
"On January 1, I better damn well be president I'll tell you. Well I will be. I will be for 20 days. Don't do this to me. You can't do that."

Someone should do an analysis of how many words Trump was speaking per minute before being given dexamethasone, how many words per minute now, & how many words per minute 7 days from now.

Trump rallies are a time suck, a money suck, which aren't being carried on national TV. And it's not clear that hosting large gatherings mid-pandemic doesn't hurt him with voters in the end.
But the adoring crowds keep the president happy.
