    Why would he? He’s constantly rewarded for doing and saying whatever he feels like, no matter how trenchantly stupid.

    Trump's priorities is not self improvement. It is to win, and others to lose.

    The President's real job is to draw all your eyes to him while all the other politicians do all the truly awful shit behind the scenes.

    In that regard, Trump has got to be the most successful President in U.S. history. Washington couldn't have planted a better clown if they'd tried.

    And one of those casinos is still there, it just no longer has the Trump name on it. You can go down to Atlantic City and go to the Taj Mahal hotel and casino, and see where they still have the Taj Mahal logo and the empty space above it where the Trump logo USED TO BE.

    I've often said that this is the real reason why the Republicans in the Senate wouldn't vote to remove Trump from office. Sure, Pence would still give them all the tax cuts and conservative judges, but he wouldn't distract the media with ridiculous Twitter feuds the way Trump does.

    Well, Caramel Caligula isn't doing much winning right now as he's finally up against an enemy in COVID-19 he can't bully, can't insult, can't intimidate, can't outfox, can't pay off and can't threaten. I'm sure that has Trump going crazy as he's the one who's losing.

    The numbers that concern him is not COVID deaths, it's his polling numbers and TV ratings.

    And no one has the balls to call Trump to task for his insensitivity.

    Fixed it for you. They do on various news outlets, but the WH press corp can barely ask a neutral question.

    To which the Democrats said, 'Hold my beer," and conducted a desperate search to find someone even older, even closer to the grave, even whiter and with the required Y chromosome to be their ideal candidate. To quote Yakov Smirnoff, "What a country!"

    Trump's tried a form of censorship too, by revoking the press pass of CNN's Jim Acosta. Trump has been pampered all his life, first by his family and then by the media of the 1980s and 90s. A perfect example is the notorious live mike capture of him with Billy Bush. That was hushed up at the time. And even when Trump was exposed, it was Billy Bush that got fired while Trump won the election. We hear and read about all the things that were known about him and still he was the darling of the media for a while.

    In keeping with this thread's point, I doubt Trump perceives himself as losing this, or at least not very often nor for very long. He appears to have always distorted his perceptions of reality. One can't help but recall the stories of Hitler in his Berlin bunker commanding legions that no longer existed to counter the Soviet Juggernaut rolling his way.

    Or that the World would still laud him for taking care of the Jewish Problem.

    Let us not forget that the Clinton emails (where the biggest thing anyone could find was friggin' Pizzagate) were released almost immediately after the Trump tape dropped; within hours. Remember that the next time someone tries to revise recent history about Donald Trump's collusion with Russia to influence American elections.
