Trump isn't crazy. He's signalling to The Epoch Times.

If anyone watched Rachel M. last night, they were informed that The Epoch Times is a group out of China who is now trying to become mainstream media in the US. They have bought the most online advertising in favor of Trump, next to the Trump re-election campaign itself. They are a spiritual organization that believes Trump was "sent" or "chosen" (sound familiar?) to destroy Communism via his trade war, which will thereby stop the persecution they are being subjected to by the Chinese government.

1. He might be doing that, but he's also crazy.

10. That assumes he has two functioning neurons to rub together,

and that he's capable of formulating any sort of strategy. He doesn't, and he isn't.

5. He's like a desperate, cornered animal.

He knows he has to win 2020 to avoid indictment, so he's willing to take help from anywhere - not only from the Russians, but now also the Chinese.

He may be crazy, but we underestimate him at our own peril....

7. I don't think MF45 would mind

bringing on "the end times" just to prove falun gong right: that he is the second coming of God or whatever.

The small New York-based nonprofit news outlet has spent more than $1.5 million on about 11,000 pro-Trump advertisements in the last six months, according to data from Facebook’s advertising archive — more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself, and more than most Democratic presidential candidates have spent on their own campaigns.

Those video ads — in which unidentified spokespeople thumb through a newspaper to praise Trump, peddle conspiracy theories about the “Deep State,” and criticize “fake news” media — strike a familiar tone in the online conservative news ecosystem. The Epoch Times looks like many of the conservative outlets that have gained followings in recent years.

But it isn’t.

Behind the scenes, the media outlet’s ownership and operation is closely tied to Falun Gong, a Chinese spiritual community with the stated goal of taking down China’s government.

8. I think he's signaling to the crazies

The ones with guns who are willing to protect the chosen one from the evil Democrat takeover. Or maybe he’s just crazy.
