He's incapable of telling the truth when he thinks a lie will help him more. It doesn't matter that everyone knows its a lie. It's not dementia.

He's learned that a lie, no matter how outrageous, simply needs to be restated and restated and restated. A scary percentage of people will either start to believe it or shrug their shoulders in resignation at the folly of trying to correct the lie. I mean, I'm not scoffing at the possibility of dementia or any other cognitive deficiency; in fact, they're not mutually exclusive. I just think he's done this and gotten away with it his entire life.

Trump love guys who pay out settlements for sexual assault. I really would like to sit down with a female Trump voter and just present information to her.

I just saw Trump's Joe Biden tweet.

If this country makes it to 2030 I will be amazed.

It's definitely a fake name that a Russian sleeper agent chose after watching 16 candles, but knowing they had to change their fav characters name just a little.

I remember Ryan as the guy who challenged Nancy Pelosi for House Minority Leader (pre-2018 midterms, obviously) on the basis that Dems didn't sufficiently cater to economically anxious Trump voters.
