QOTD -- Off A Cognitive Cliff


"...It’s an axiom that when a patient with a personality disorder becomes demented, everything about their personality-disordered behavior gets exponentially worse. Trump will become more horribly Trumpian, if you can believe it. Everything evil and destructive about him will become even more exaggerated in an unbound, and even more erratic way, until he is nothing but rageful id, with no rational control or inhibitions. It will be pure chaos. From that point, there’s simply no bad outcome that you can think of that’s inconceivable.

"People need to understand dementia is a progressive illness, which means the Trump you see today is the best Trump you’re ever going to see. It’s all downhill from here. Trump’s rate of decline is accelerating, and if he’s typical, at some point, he will 'fall off a cognitive cliff' and become completely disabled..." -- John Gartner, former assistant professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University Medical School and founder of Duty to Warn, a group of mental health professionals, excerpted from The Big Picture substack. The Gartner interview is detailed and convincing (as if we needed more convincing about the Malignant Loser's mental state), and compares media treatment of President Biden's age with treatment of the Malignant Loser's mental decline and dementia.  Great read.

I've thought for a while that he will not be the Republican candidate. If his trial starts Monday I will be wrong on that. If he does make it to the candidacy it will show - how what's the word- the US has become. Whatever it is it ain't good.
