But I'm more concerned with the first part of the quote. Dallas hasn't closed bars?! San Antonio/Bexar County re-closed them very quickly. Bars and restaurants were the only part of the reopening I ever really had a problem with. And not requiring masks while in businesses. But here we have that as well. Is Dallas just that much more right wing?
Yes, it was intended stereotyping, poor attempt at humor. Yes, I see Biden and Bernie stickers also but I don't recall seeing any on the stereotyped pickup trucks. I also see the lifted trucks with no stickers at all. No intention to even imply people don't have the right to support their candidates. Democrats are increasing in Dallas. It has much to do the with families moving here from other states.

Correction--bars are closed and restaurants reduced to 50% capacity.

It would be hilarious to see MAGA/ Trump stickers on a Prius and a Biden/ Bernie sticker on a Magnum XL truck.

Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. I was going to be amazed, and appalled, if Dallas had not closed bars. Restaurants should be closed too (or takeout only), but see the aforementioned service industry's portion of our jobs market/economy.

Dallas is not alone. It's not just Austin as a major metroplex that is turning purple, or even blue. The state as a whole is doing so.

He finally puts on a mask.

I hope this encourages the naysayers or his fan base to put theirs on as well.

We're 7 months in, 3.37 millions infected, 137,000 dead.

He finally wised up and did the right thing.

I am going to look on the bright side and pray that this is a positive step towards a gradual reduction in covid infection.

It's still not too late to turn this thing around. Even if it means the orange bang gets re-elected.

I don't expect to see him in a mask again.

Just watched a few minutes of his press conference chastising 'defunding' the police, that it is all democratic officials behind it. He said how terrible the shootings have increased even though re-distribution of police funds to lesson the load on police has yet to happen.

Noted that there were several babies in the room. No one was wearing a mask. And, he is still saying the increase in cases is due to increase in testing.

Trump will never back off of his position the virus is under control. That would mean he was admitting he is wrong. If he does that then he is admitting responsibility for deaths that should not have happened. He doesn't admit he is wrong about anything. He will continue to double down hoping the Covid 19 cases will drop or enough folks will believe him so it doesn't become more of an election issue.

I feel sure some school districts in areas where virus cases are above 5% and climbing will open schools. The pandemic is still as, or more political than ever.

Trump is a psychopath.


Mary Trumps book sold 950,000 **IN THE FIRST DAY**




Think of this...any normal human being, sitting in the oval office, who was as utterly unprepared and incapable of doing the job as Trump, would collapse under the pressure.


Only a psychopathic narcissist, who cares not one whit about anyone other than himself, could survive.


MAGA my ass.

I thought he's more than a narcissist. His complete lack of compassion and his need to garner as much spot light and attention as he can, whether deserved or not, makes him a complicated narcissist doubling as a psychopath.

I think he isn't caving into the pressure because he doesn't think he's done anything wrong. As he's said publicly over and over again. He takes no responsibility for any of our country's plight, and the blame is with everyone else except him.

He's a short-sighted, failed business man who values the stock market more than the health and safety of his citizen. The ones he sworn an oath to protect.

He remembers every single slight and he makes political decision based whether his peers stroke or harm his ego.

This is someone who has no sense of right or wrong. He's an organism covered with a layer of human skin, but underneath it's an inhuman creature who feels no pain of others, and focused only with his self presevation.

What's sad is his ability to bullshit and put on a well-dressed, seemingly charismatic front fooled enough people in this country to believe in him and vote for him.

He's done worst damage to this country than our enemies have done.

What's funny is a lot of Republicans still believe backing him means the Republicans continue to hold onto power, and therefore they can ignore or sacrifice all the damages he has done to this republic.

I think history will show that the Republican party got more than they asked for in this deal with the devil.

Trump is good for the economy. Look at that. She sold 950,000 copies on day 1.
Ya see. Nearly a million people chose to part with their money just to have a paper with his name on it. And he didn’t do anything, other than golf on that day.
Some people are just weird. Born weird.

and sadly, Donnie and his family will control the white hot core of Trumpism for years to come, grinding up good decent people in their corrupt quest.


My inlaws still think Dick Nixon got a raw deal....

A psychopath and a narcissist are similar. The primary difference is that narcissists overvalue themselves at the expense of others and like their acts to be visible to the public.

There are different types of narcissists. Trump fits the profile of a malignant narcissist, the worst type of narcissist. They have most of the traits of other types of narcissists but they also degrade others in almost any way they can because they enjoy doing so.
