I don't like it. Immediately after the NYC bombing, Donald Trump spewed his usual spew -- "Everything's going to hell, folks: Only I can save you." I expected a lot more of that. I expected more conclusion-hopping, more unseemly and unpresidential chest-thumping, more me-me-me-ME
. I also expected him to capitalize on the Minnesota stabbings
, an event seemingly intended
to put Trump in office.
But he didn't do it. Instead, he has been uncannily muted, aside from a standard tweet of condolence. The bad boy has behaved himself.
That's not good for Democrats. I still don't think that Hillary can win this election, but Donald Trump can certainly lose it. He heads into loser territory every time he gives the public a glimpse of his ugly, malformed psyche. Hillary always looks like the better option after Donald spews incoherent paranoia and reveals himself as a frothing, snarling carrier of political rabies. Unfortunately, his handlers -- he has handlers now -- have applied duct tape to his Twitter-fingers.
I don't like it. Let Trump be Trump!
