Worldwide the media gloated over the only third full stadium for Trump’s first re-election signature assembly. Given their characteristic agenda-pushing dishonesty that shouldn’t surprise. They deliberately ignored the sabotaging of the event by organised mass bookings by his opponents to achieve precisely that end.
More particularly they ignored the highly publicised dangers Oklahomans faced, their state currently on an upward Covid spike.
So draw no conclusions from that meeting nor Trump’s polling slump. Remember on election day 4 years ago, Huffington had him at a 2% chance.
I listened to Trump’s speech in full. Frankly it was horrendously alarming, even by Trump’s abominable standards. At times he struck me as verging on insanity.
That he’s a grotesque, psychopathic, ignorant, lying megalomaniac is well established. But this was something different. On two occasions he left even his audience bewildered as he launched into rambling, often incoherent nonsense.
Overall I was left with an “end of Empire” sense which Trump seems to symbolise.
Within two decades, if not earlier, China will be the world’s economic powerhouse and the most influential nation.
