They didn't trust him with sharp things then, I see,
Or he was far too limp wristed to draw out his sword. ;-)

But maybe reality is setting in.

Trump starts to articulate a painful reality: He could lose in 2020.

Just weeks from Election Day, President Donald Trump is saying the quiet part out loud about his own campaign. The president is crisscrossing the country with a packed schedule, flying to some states he won handily in 2016, to deliver a final pitch for a second term — and making no secret of his own shaky standing.

“Could you imagine if I lose?” Trump said Friday evening at a campaign rally in Macon, Ga. “My whole life, what am I going to do? I’m going to say, 'I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.' I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country. I don’t know.”
He'll likely beat a quick path to his 757 and be off to Russia quick smart so that his buddy Vlad can protect him from all the legal problems that being president has protected him from so far, but an orange jumpsuit would match him makeup very well, and here are just a few of them.

The legal reckoning awaiting Donald Trump if he loses the election.

In testimony before Congress, Mueller was asked by Republican Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado, "Could you charge the President with a crime after he left office?"
"Yes," Mueller replied.

"You believe that he committed -- you could charge the President of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?" Buck asked.
Mueller answered: "Yes."
But some might fear that he'll wind up in Scotland.

New Trump golf course provokes fury in Scotland.

But I doubt that will happen as he could very easily be extradited from there. ;-)

I think that this sums up things quite well.

Next to Trump, even Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison look good.

Hmm...
On a call with campaign staff on Monday, President Trump dismissed Dr Anthony Fauci, the top US infectious disease expert, as a "disaster".
"People are tired of Covid," Trump said. "People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots."
The president added that if he had listened to Fauci - "a nice guy" - with respect to Covid-19, the US would have had "500,000 deaths". There have been some 220,000 Covid deaths in the US so far, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Fauci, who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease for nearly 40 years, has repeatedly urged a cautious and science-driven approach to the pandemic.
He spoke out last week after the Trump campaign used him in an advert for the president's re-election, saying it quoted him "completely out of context".
...So says the No 1 idiot in the U.S.

See , hear, and judge for yourselves:

Comparing and contrasting Trump and Fauci, I know which I judge to be clearly the far greater caliber...

Good video. It highlighted a lot of issues. The main one being that too many are afraid to admit that they have been wrong.
It also highlights another that I've often brought up in the past that the majority of countries are guilty of.
I know that science takes time but the science involved in providing military solutions see much more financing than others.
When issues such as Covid-19 arise, the bovine excrement rises to the top.

Well Donny is again showing off his short arms and small hands.

Trump’s case against Omarosa exposes another problem: Unpaid legal bills.

Yet the campaign has thus far stiffed the arbitrator assigned to mediate the case, according to a letter sent to the parties in the case. If Trump’s attorneys don’t pay the outstanding bill by next week, the case could be tossed out.
I wonder how many of his many other cases could wind up the same way.

And then there's the money from donations that he's blown since being elected.

How Trump plowed through $1 billion, losing cash advantage.

“They spent their money on unnecessary overhead, lifestyles-of-the-rich-and-famous activity by the campaign staff and vanity ads,” said Mike Murphy, a veteran Republican consultant who advised John McCain and Jeb Bush and is an outspoken Trump critic. “You could literally have 10 monkeys with flamethrowers go after the money, and they wouldn’t have burned through it as stupidly.”
And that doesn't include the extra government debt that has been accumulated under his watch.

The https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trump_Organization says
The Trump Organization is a group of about 500 business entities of which Donald Trump is the sole or principal owner
And I must assume each has a bank account in the country it operates.

Has v2.0 created a new lot of Dreamers due to his policy on undocumented migrants crossing into the US?

Parents of 545 children still not found three years after Trump separation policy.

In a court filing, the ACLU said that about two-thirds of the parents had been deported back to the country of origin in Central America, leaving their separated children behind. In the rush to carry out Trump’s orders, the locations of the parents were not recorded and three years later they still cannot be found.

The zero-tolerance policy was announced in April 2018. It was later revealed that the administration had begun family separation the previous year under a secret pilot program.

In total, 1,030 children were removed from their parents by the US government under that pilot scheme, of whom 485 children have had their parents found under a scheme imposed by federal judges. The ACLU and a team of lawyers have been tasked by the courts with finding all the parents.
Meanwhile v2.0's own party look to be the 1's to blame for no COVID stimulus before the election.

GOP pushes back on White House's stimulus talks with Pelosi, signaling final action could slip until after elections.

At a closed-door lunch, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows fended off serious concerns raised by GOP senators over the Trump administration's efforts to finalize a roughly $2 trillion package before the elections.
"He got some pushback on: 'Why are you bidding this up into an area where you're gonna lose support?' " Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, a West Virginia Republican, told CNN. "He said: 'It's a work in motion.' "

Senate Republicans, who failed to advance their own $500 billion plan Wednesday over Democratic opposition, have given Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin an earful over the last two weeks about the frantic push to reach a deal that the GOP argues is far too expensive.
And while some GOP senators are distancing themselves from Donny.

Mitt Romney says he did not vote for Trump in the 2020 election.

I wonder how many others will follow Mitt's lead.

Just to keep things straight as the election gets near, Trump has made 22,247 false or misleading claims in the 1316 days he has been in office. just about 17/day, but as he started slowly at less than 7/day, he now does >30/day.

The most common repeat is about the GDP and unemployment, at 407 times, which because he didn't control the pandemic have both now tanked, bigly.

And on a separate subject, can we now add to the list of his crimes, 545 known cases of kidnap of children, were there parents have been sent to destinations unknown. And the Federal government is not carrying out any search for the parents, that has been taken on by the American Civil Liberties Union, a nongovernmental organization.
