Trump has snapped [View all]

He’s scared out of his mind and thinks that the power of positive thinking will get him out of this. He’s pumped full of drugs — some experimental — that have all kinds of nasty side effects. He thinks that being in the hospital is making him look weak.

So he’s going back to the White House against medical advice (despite what the spin doctors will say this afternoon, they are NOT advising he leave the hospital). Why? Nobody else is there because they’re all quarantining.

And he says that COVID is nothing to be scared of, and that he feels BETTER now than he did 20 years ago.

This doesn’t make him look “in charge,” it makes him look insane. But nobody can stop him now, his lizard brain is running the show.

I guess all we can do is sit back and watch this unravel.
