21. The monster has never behaved like other presidents

-Normally presidents upon reelection, no matter if they are right or left, tend somewhat to the center. tRump has never done this.

-Presidents at least put on the appearance of inclusion and trying to unite the country. He has never even tried.

-Other presidents had, at least, the good sense to stay mum on disappointing news and try to do fence-mending. Not tRump. He bashes relentlessly. Examples; polling, members of Fox News, Gold Star parents, Jewish American voters, CNN Puerto Rico...

-Other presidents felt the need to expand their base. Not tRump. He holds rallies ad nauseum as an affirmation of his relatively small base, not the least bit interested in broadening his base.

-Other presidents at least courted transparency. This pResident does everything possible to keep his 'secrets' from being made public.

- Unlike any president who tries to be presidential and somewhat diplomatic. the monster has been a disaster with every try.

With all of this and more there should be no way he could ever hope to be reelected. I believe he won't. I believe presidency via reality TV is wearing very thin with the majority of Americans. On a level playing field he has no chance of winning. With an organized and energized opposition he stands little chance of winning. The only question is will the Russian meddling be enough to turn the tide and if so can they minimize suspician of the meddling.
