I Don't Even Know Where To Begin...

On the comments by Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen labeling the idea to buy Greenland as absurd - They were "nasty.  I thought it was an inappropriate statement.  All she had to say, 'No, we wouldn't be interested.'"

"You don't talk to the United States that way, at least under me.  I thought it was not a nice statement, the way she blew me off."

On the Jewish vote - "I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty."

Doubling down - "In my opinion, you vote for a Democrat, you're being very disloyal to Jewish people, and you're being very disloyal to Israel and only weak people would say anything other than that."

Facing criticism for these comments (and the fact that 71% of Jewish voters vote Democrat) -

On the trade war with China - "I am the chosen one."

On the Medal of Honor - "This was a big day, Medal of Honor.  Nothing like the Medal of Honor.  I wanted one, but they told me I don't qualify.  I said, 'Can I give it to myself anyway?'  They said, 'I don't think that's a good idea.'"

On the recession -

I mean, I'm seriously at a loss.  I don't know why I get surprised, but I continually am.

This week seems to be a bit over the top in crazy and ego stroking.  From overstating his victory, to Jewish loyalty to him, to repeating claims that compare him to the King of Israel, the second coming, and the chosen one, to joking about giving himself a medal of honor, to blaming the media for any potential recession.

Is he off his meds?  Is this signs of feared dementia?  Seriously, what's behind this uptick.

Yesterday's post was meant to be thought provoking about how some Christian groups can jump to identification of the Antichrist and the potential blindspots that accompany such identifications.  It was not meant to be proof regarding Trump.  He seems determined though to race to the bottom.

At this point, how can approximately 35% still support him and approve of his presidency?

That kind of blind loyalty benefits no one.  At some point this egomania should concern us.  It should be a red flag.

I mean, is he purposefully trying to tank the job, so that he won't get re-elected?  And there's still a substantial portion of the voting population is determined to make sure he is?

It really does baffle the mind.  It's hard to imagine what the future will say about this time.

Perhaps they will be as much at a loss for words as I am.
