He thinks he can create a crisis worse that simple things like the Civil War, WW's I & II Korea, Vietnam, etc. etc. Depressions and Recessions.

Just putting it out there to see how many MAGA Hats will back him up I suppose.

We will vote when the DJ is above 40K, that is where he would be now without Corona. Earlier voting is highly unfair.

Corona is a chinese virus, we can't let the chinese influence our elections!

That tweet was just an obvious ploy to blunt the economic news released at exactly the same time.

And the media completely fell for it to, so good for him.

Also he phrased it as a question ("Delay the election?") So you cant accuse him of openly calling for it.

GEOTUS's lawyer-speak game is on point.

The economy has collapsed, 150,000+ Americans has died on his watch, he lost Hong Kong. I can see how he wants to delay the election for as long as possible.

he floats all of his whack job ideas as a question

he's still proposing it to see if his cultists buy it... if humiliated he just says 'i wasn't suggesting we actually do it'

I'd say there is a ~5% chance Trump attempts to seize power using COVID as an excuse.

Yes, that is the genius of Trump.

Who would actually support him in that though?

"Yes, that is the genius of Trump."

If you think asking questions is genius, have you considered killing yourself in shame?

The genius of Trump is hiding behind ambiguity. Was it a question or a suggestion?

See how I clevery posed that as a question? Ohohoho, I just did it again, there is no off switch for my genius.

It's a part of a larger skillset. The day you can parlay talking in vagaries into becoming the fricken president, I will acknowledge your genius.

It’s part of something larger I give you that, not his skill set, but your society, this world and specific time. Can you imagine Trump getting elected in the 90’s? Me neither.

I'd just like to point out that if Trump was running in the 90s, in a lot of ways he'd be considered a moderate Democrat. Particularly given his stances on protectionism, illegal immigration, deregulation, and law and order.

That's how far the Overton window has shifted though. Yesterday's moderate Democrat is today's far-right white supremacist.

Sen Cornyn (R) has decided it was a joke

repeatedly telling the public it will be the most fraudulent election in history is HILARIOUS!!!

Gun toting whackjobs raving on facebook about masks and why they are not allowed to carry machine guns into Costco.

Turns out Trump was only kidding. He doesn't want to delay the election. In fact, he wants an election more than you!



"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hours after suggesting a possible delay in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said he did not want to postpone the vote.

“I want an election and a result, much, much more than you,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “I don’t want to delay. I want to have the election."

Only retards (and pathetic failures/orphans/cucks/alcoholics) could possibly think Trump is a "genius." Durr I can remember 5 words and can spend 10 minutes bragging about it.

"We can not have free government without elections; and if the rebellion could force us to forego, or postpone a national election it might fairly claim to have already conquered and ruined us. The strife of the election is but human-nature practically applied to the facts of the case. What has occurred in this case, must ever recur in similar cases. Human-nature will not change. In any future great national trial, compared with the men of this, we shall have as weak, and as strong; as silly and as wise; as bad and good"

I'm probably going to lock the interest rates on this $10m or so worth of real estate transactions on Monday. Thanks, Trump!

^ Twitter NOT banning Trump is an example of liberal bias. His continued access to his own Twitter account, overall, tends to benefit the left.

Banning Trump from direct access = fair and balanced.

Not banning Trump = evidence of liberal bias.

It's a wonder Trump hasn't sued Twitter for airing his private thoughts.
