An ex-MAGA activist warns “no civic savior is coming” as Donald Trump’s cognitive decline becomes undeniable

What if Donald Trump defeats President Biden and takes control of the White House in 2025? He has already announced his plans to become the country’s first dictator, and to launch a reign of terror and revenge against his so-called enemies. As detailed in documents such as Project 2025, Agenda 47, and elsewhere, the infrastructure is being created right now to put Trump’s neofascist plans to end multiracial pluralistic democracy in effect on “day one." The so-called resistance will not have the courtesy of ramping up or mobilizing to stop Dictator Trump’s onslaught. It will be a “shock and awe” campaign visited upon the American people.

Dictator Trump’s reign of terror will be made even worse by the fact that as shown during recent speeches, interviews, and at other events he appears to be encountering severe difficulties in cognition, language, and memory.

In a series of recent conversations with me here at Salon, Dr. John Gartner, a prominent psychologist and contributor to the bestselling book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President,” has issued this warning: “Not enough people are sounding the alarm, that based on his behavior, and in my opinion, Donald Trump is dangerously demented. In fact, we are seeing the opposite among too many in the news media, the political leaders and among the public. There is also this focus on Biden’s gaffes or other things that are well within the normal limits of aging. By comparison, Trump appears to be showing gross signs of dementia. This is a tale of two brains. Biden’s brain is aging. Trump’s brain is dementing.”

    Is anyone seriously expecting the republiQan party to do anything but lick trumps rapist, fraudulent ass? No.

    I don’t know what kind of humiliation kick they’re on but we’re almost a decade into it now. Yeah yeah he was president, yeah, how great. I can see how proud you are about that. Personally I always thought science was a bit of a conspiracy too - probably to hinder Jeezus or something right? Right, right.

    Anyway, you political opinon writers - enjoy. Do … . y’know that thing where you pretend they’re sane and reasonable and not a flaming dumpster going over a cliff with everyone chained to it.

    There’s another article that says that Trump’s people have just kicked out dozens of staff at the RNC. Firing the people who know the most about running an election months before the voting is always a great idea.

      I agree. The Republican party needs to die. There is no need to show them mercy.
