Q: why don’t they come out and say it?
I honestly don’t understand
the President of the United States is a madman but the NYT can’t say that.....because??
the NYT can’t state the obvious, disturbing truth abt POTUS bc he’s a white, male, bullying Republican?

it was pure Beltway elite fantasy that Trump was going to show for three debates and not act like a lunatic; pressrun.media/p/why-the-deba…
a defining failure of Trump era;
“When one of the two candidates opts out of the real world and occupies an alternative universe where the Covid-19 virus will soon "disappear" from America, at that point, the debates no longer serve any real purpose”

.my latest—let’s tell the truth; pressrun.media/p/trumps-a-mad…
“Today, there are two truths in play: Trump fits the textbook definition of  a psychopath, and newsrooms don’t want to touch that story.”
“Why has Trump's emotional instability become the third rail of American journalism, a topic so dangerous that it cannot be touched as a news story?”

reminder: Fox News has killed thousands and thousands of Americans; pressrun.media/p/trump-has-co…
back in March I went on @amjoyshow and said Fox was going to get thousands killed, and right-wing media freaked out
“For nearly two decades, Fox News has been depicted by mainstream media as strictly a partisan vehicle. Refusing to address the long lasting damage that right-wing propaganda does to our democracy, Fox News has been presented as mostly a problem for Democrats.”

*if* Biden won by 13, Dems would pick up 7-8 Senate seats
and why don’t we hear anything abt House??

is Beltway assumption that Dems picked up all available seats in 2018? *if* Biden won by double digits, Dems would pick up 20+ in House.
people understand what a landslide looks like, right?

My latest—it’s not possible to stage a two-person debate when one of them is a sociopath.

“Trump has torn up so many norms and traditions with his radical behavior. So let’s add another one to the list — cancel the next two debate. Nobody will miss them.”
let's be perfectly clear, if @debates commission doesn't allow moderators to cut Trump's mic in future forums, we'll know the whole thing is a charade and has nothing to do w/ informing voters.

yet another Beltway Establishment Fail during Trump era
