Watching the spectacular and accelerating mental decline of Donald Trump is becoming more disturbing with each new day's revelations. And the shove off of the cliff of sanity was especially profound following Thursday morning's news that the Supreme Court ruled against Trump on two major cases involving access to his financial records.
In short, the cases concluded by a 7-2 vote that Trump may not shield his finances from law enforcement or congressional inquiries. In the former case the ruling was clear that no president is above the law and that subpoenas by District Attorney of New York are proper and enforceable. In the latter case the court agreed that Congress also had authority to demand such records, but required their subpoenas to be less broadly stated. It remains uncertain whether this information will become public before election day, but just the pending prosecutions will be a political albatross around Trump's neck for the next four months.
Immediately following these rulings, Trump went on a Twitter tirade attacking the courts, the justices, the law, and even his own judicial appointees. Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh both voted with the majority on both cases. Trump's tweets were additional evidence that he suffering from severe psychological trauma that is aggravated by this sort of devastating news. He began with a tweet saying that…
“We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAUGHT…and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear.”
Here Trump sets the tone for his message of the day. It amounts to a non-defense that rests on making baseless accusations against others. But not only is there no evidence of wrongdoing by President Obama, Joe Biden, or Trump's other mortal enemies from the past, it doesn't deny a single allegation against him. In effect, it's the “I'll whine until you forget all the crap I did wrong” defense. He went from there to this…
“No Republican Senate Judiciary response, NO 'JUSTICE', NO FBI, NO NOTHING. Major horror show REPORTS on Comey & McCabe, guilty as hell, nothing happens. Catch Obama & Biden cold, nothing. A 3 year, $45,000,000 Mueller HOAX, failed – investigated everything.”
Of course, all those who Trump is convicting in his tweet have not been found to be guilty by any court. This guilt lies only in the deranged mind of Trump. And he is reverting to his old standard of calling anything that reflects poorly on him a “hoax” (Russia, Ukraine, coronavirus, etc.) It's notable that the targets of his wrath here are his GOP confederates in the Senate, his own Justice Department, and an FBI run by his hand-picked appointees. Then he continues…
“Won all against the Federal Government and the Democrats send everything to politically corrupt New York, which is falling apart with everyone leaving, to give it a second, third and fourth try. Now the Supreme Court gives a delay ruling that they would never have given for any other president.”
First of all, Trump's assertion that he “won all” can only be described as demented. Even the Fox News senior legal analyst says that Trump lost both cases. And once again, Trump identifies his foe as “the Federal Government” that he is at the helm of. Furthermore, his swipe at New York's legal establishment is a desperately wild swing that fails miserably to advance any goal he might have. But he's still not through…
“This is about PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT. We catch the other side SPYING on my campaign, the biggest political crime and scandal in U.S. history, and NOTHING HAPPENS. But despite this, I have done more than any President in history in first 3 1/2 years!”
Needless to say, there never was any spying on Trump's campaign. However Trump's claim that he's “done more than any President in history” would be correct if he just added the word “harm” after the word “more.” Then Trump closes this harangue with the all-caps, classic whine, “POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”
What this all amounts to is further proof of how rapidly Trump is spiral downward. His psychoses have been well documented and their effects long predicted. And as more revelations of his crimes are exposed, these episodes of derangement will continue and intensify. BE AFRAID! Here's a few previous articles that addressed Trump's failing mental state:
- Fox News has speculated that he might just drop out of the race to avoid the humiliation of a landslide defeat.
- Trump's campaign has become a laughable parody of a candidate in distress.
- There's no doubt that he is frightened by the universally dreadful polling showing Joe Biden crushing him nationally by double digits, as well as leading in every crucial swing state.
- There was a conference at Yale University that featured testimony from numerous psychiatric professionals attesting to Trump's unfitness for office.
- An analysis of Trump's behavior fits the diagnosis of senile dementia.
