A) Trump did it for DeSantis in Florida. Occam’s razor, bay-bee!Agreed. Also, it's a standard Trumpian play to say he's thinking of doing something, provoking a big discussion about whether he should, then backing off. It keeps attention on himself in his role of important decider, while distracting from criticism of his performance.— Ancient Incel (@graybeard1959) March 29, 2020
B) How does Trump distract from critique of his incompetence by being more incompetent? It’s the distraction argument that’s incompetent. It’s a distraction from the horror that the POTUS really is so deep in the shit he has to look up to see bottom. All the explanations I’m reading are just papering over the fear of this reality.
