Trump is acting like a cornered animal. America needs a human being.

Opinion by Dana Milbank

In nature, an animal is most dangerous when cornered and wounded. The same is proving true in the closing months of President Trump’s term.

Trump botched the coronavirus pandemic, bungled the economic recovery and flubbed the handling of civil rights demonstrations. Members of his own family denounce him. He faces a seemingly insurmountable deficit against challenger Joe Biden.

And so the president is trying to provoke a race war on the streets of America.

“We’ve arrived at a moment in this campaign,” Biden said during a visit to a rehabilitated Pittsburgh steel mill Monday, that “we all knew . . . we’d get to — the moment when Donald Trump would be so desperate, he’d do anything to hold on to power.”

2. It is hard to lose SOMETHING you never had....

Be it dignity, honor, etc.

Which is why I did not watch the RNC. How do you humanize someone who has no humanity to begin with? It is like trying to get water from a stone.

3. "And so the president is trying to provoke a race war on the streets of America."

As noted in an earlier post on DU Trump is doing what the Nazis did to take power
they would send their thugs to parts of Germany that were not pro nazi to start
fights and riots and then say, "Only We can save yopu from this violence."

4. On election day ... send Donald into full retirement on the golf course.

He is a trouble maker. We don't need him. We never did.

8. Sieze his properties

Scotland should too. Trump promised thousands of jobs to Scotland around his N.E. golf course
and so far the # is around 90 with more than 1/2 of those jobs are being a caddy.

10. That golf course is a crime against nature

He plopped it down allong the Scottish coast in what is called a dune community and dunes
are made to move with the wind and the dunes that Trump developed into his Aberdeen Golf
property are now blocked from doing what they were designed to do by nature and millions of
years of evolution. The golf course should be torn out, the native plants and animals restored,
and the hotel and buildings turned into an institute to work on climate change.

16. I think that is the golf courses club house (notice the lack of cars in the parking lot) and i ....

... there is a hotel too. I say keep the buildings and use them for a world class institute to
study climate change, ecological restoration, and sustainability. Because those are worth
while goals and it would really piss Trump off.

17. Dear Dana Milbank

What is this "economic recovery " you write of ? Trump inherited an expanding economy from Obama.
Enough of the bullshit.
