Cue the Theme from the Twilight Zone........

   The Big Orange Idiot sat down with one of his most sympathetic interviewers in the Fox universe: Laura Ingraham.  If anybody could ask softball questions designed to make him look smart and presidential, she could.....or so she thought.

   As the interview progressed, however, the wheels began to come off the bus.  The Idiot began spinning a story: "Referring to the Republican National Convention last week, Trump claimed, "We had somebody get on a plane from a certain city this weekend, and in the plane it was almost completely loaded with thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that."

There is no such plane. "
      As you listened, it was so perfectly clear that he was making it all up out of whole cloth....and, the inescapable impression was that the President of the United States had gone bonkers....just lost his freakin' mind.  The story was way beyond being merely unbelievable, right out there in "Say WHAT???" land.  One fact checker for MSNBC said, " stupid that it was barely fact-checkable".

So, this is what 'Bat shit Crazy' looks like
    He gets this oddly conspiratorial tone of voice, and this look in his eyes, and uses key phrases, i.e. "I don't know, but it's what I heard from a good source."   Of course, he cannot tell us what that 'source' might be but, by now, we know it is his very own feverish peanut-brain.  And, when he's in this 'storytelling' mode, he's just making it up as he goes.

  Laura Ingraham, as a good conservative pundit, was doing her best to feed him lines and offer suggestions that would make him sound less insane, and more in the realm of the believable.  Despite her best efforts, he insisted on rambling through the weeds with this cockamamie bullshit story.  It's what he does best......LIE.

  But, we have a national election that is just over the horizon.  It will happen 61 days from now and this country is still dealing with multiple crises.  The Idiot....and his Mini-me, Pence....want us to believe that the pandemic is gone....way back there in the rear-view mirror somewhere....but, it is far from over and various states and especially schools and colleges are struggling mightily to get things going again...without causing spikes in infection rates.  Parents are worried sick that sending their kids back to school is potentially dangerous.  Millions are still unemployed, and the GOPs are sitting on their hands and refusing to distribute any more funds to make their lives more doable.  California just forbade landlords from evicting tenants who are behind in their rent, but that hasn't happened all across the country, so the suffering has and will continue.

  There are hoards of people, as I mentioned in the last post, who have embraced one of the most nonsensical and idiotic conspiracies to come along....ever: Q-Anon.  Teams of radical right operators have posed as the left and are doing all they can to create chaos and terror in the streets of a host of cities.  The goal is to have potential voters become so afraid of the far-left that they run to Big Orange to save them from the deep-state and its evil cohorts.

  When you have a rapidly growing hoard of people who are willing to believe that Hillary Clinton and Tom Hanks...among many babies after molesting them, you are looking at the growth of mass insanity.  It's not so different from the 9-11 Truthers who believe that the U.S. government blew up the World Trade Center and the a plot to send the U.S. into a war in the middle-east.  The war, of course, happened and is still happening...but it wasn't because the government conspired to murder over 3000 Americans as a way of manipulating public sentiments.

  There is a certain kind of mind-set that is ready and even pleased to embrace conspiracies.,.and the more out there and insane they are, the better.

  And, the Idiot is as bat-shit crazy as the people who believe his bullshit. He's proving it over and over every single day.  Any neutral observer can clearly see that he is losing it.

   So, what do we do now?
