The president's lurid imagination

The president's lurid imagination

by digby

From his rally last night:

Trump, ranting, yells about the dangers of immigration and recounts incidents of violence in grisly details. The crowd is mostly silent.

He absolutely loves to share these stories. It's a window into his mind. He's twisted.

Trump goads the crowd into calling members of MS-13 "ANIMALS!" Creepy stuff.

I know we're not supposed to use the "F" word, but this is fascist demagoguery, people. There is not other way to define it.

The rally was full of the usual illuminating comments. This one I thought was particularly interesting. He sees himself as a liberator.

Trump is retelling his story about MS-13 as enemy occupying army and Trump as liberator of Long Island: "It's like they've been liberated, like from a war...the people are dancing and they're waving and they're looking out their windows and they're waving at the ICE people."

They greeted him with flowers ...

And then there's this.

Trump brags about the size of his hands.

"We'll build new strength into our country, new hope into our communities, and we'll do it all with these big, beautiful hands. Look at these hands."

This is not a stable person. But you knew that.
