Trump Incoherence (No Hand Makeup)

The following is a TheDaily Kos post and has been posted just as is posted ont he Kos page.

Incoherent Donald Trump repeatedly babbled about the 'oranges of the Mueller investigation'

Speaking to reporters in the White House today, Donald Trump made several statements that were not only bizarre, they were downright incoherent. Take for instance, this moment when he was talking about the Mueller investigation. Listen as he repeatedly uses the word “oranges” instead of “origins” while talking about the Mueller investigation. He does correctly, albeit partially use the word “origin” in one instance, but he’s clearly struggling with the word. 
Take a listen. 

Wow -- Trump repeatedly mangles the word "origins," on three separate occasions saying "oranges" instead. 😳

That wasn’t the only eyebrow raising part of the appearance. Here are a few other lowlights. Here he discusses his father, who he says was born in Germany. His father, Fred Trump, was born in the United States.

Trump just said "my father is German, was German. Born in a very wonderful place in Germany." Fred Trump was born in New York.

TRUMP threatens to close border with Mexico as soon as this weekend, then rants about immigration during Oval Office meeting with NATO secretary general: "What we have to do is Congress has to meet quickly & make a deal... to be honest with you, we have to get rid of judges."

In the two clips below, you can hear Donald Trump accuse three Central American countries of “arranging” the migrant caravans to the United States. 
And in the final clip, Donald Trump touted his top secret healthcare plan. The one he’s been promising since he began campaigning in 2015. It’s so secret we’ll probably never see it. Like Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Trump accuses the governments of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador of "arranging" migrant caravans.

"They don't put their best people in these caravans," Trump says. "We're not going to have them in the United States."

TRUMP on his new, as-of-yet-unspecified health care plan: "We're going to have a phenomenal health care... we will be showing you at the appropriate time. It's much better than Obamacare."

(He has had 4 years to come up with a viable health care plan!🙃)

Come on 2020.

As Trump's World Turns: El Paso And The Lie Machine

Image may contain: 1 person, text
 The lies started with a false claim about special permission from the El Paso Fire Department.

Trump's rally in El Paso, TC sets the stage for his apparent interest in running for a second term/ We can only hope legal entanglements via investigation will stifle Trump's taste for the limelight (and the US Presidency) with a resultant decision to not run again. The nation needs much better and I offer can do much better...even from the Republican party.

But let's take a few minutes and follow yet another Aaron Rupar Twitter thread of Trump's Rally.
CNN's Chris Cuomo offered a rebuttal to Trump's continuing lies about the past and present crime rate in El Paso, TX.

And let there be no rally without a reach-back lie about the Obama Administration.

Herewith is a link to Aaron's Twitter page:

And here is how it often ends with Trump.  A member of the BBC media team was literally attacked by a MAGA cap wearing dink.

Another perspective.

I don't recall reports of Hitler nor Joseph Goebbels enticing such attacks during a rally.
