Some more polling indicating that white people are getting bored of Trump's racist schtick. It's as though most of them have finally admitted he's full of crap.

It's not just a problem for Trump: his entire party still exists because they're the party of institutional racism. If they lose that they've got no national base worth discussing; disaffected white middle class voters won't come back at anything like the rate the overt racists will leave, and it will be a long time before they can sucker any other large group into trusting them enough to come flooding in. Besides, who would they appeal to? Incredibly selfish middle class whites aren't an electing majority either, and any other nominally culturally conservative group is going to be a while forgetting that the GOP has been the party of white supremacy for half a century. Well, except for incredibly selfish women, who may be a while forgetting that it's also the party of overt patriarchy and sexual discrimination.

I don't think that white people, as a group, have suddenly become less racist in a matter of months, than decided that overt racism no longer appeals to them. I suspect that it was one thing to vote for "hug hur, blame immigrants for everything" when they thought their biggest problem was Obama letting trans people use toilets, it's another when the government is obviously botching a pandemic response. It's dawned on people that Trump is a one trick pony and he's got nothing to offer except internet poop-posting.

Not that anyone will accept blame for a much hyped rally which only filled 1/3 of the seats (6,200 out of 19,000), but apparently Trump got a smaller audience in that venue than the 2019 performance of the West Virginia touring company of La Traviata. Now yes, we are talking about a city noted for being full of effete elitists; but still.

Even Oklahomans aren't reckless enough to go to an indoor rantfest during a pandemic. Hilarious prank the k-pop kids played on the Trump campaign by spamming them with fake registrations, though.

Apparently Trump spent more than 10 minutes talking about how yes, he really can walk down ramps and drink water, so there, so shut up you big meanie librul fake news!

Back in March Trump was briefed that Russia is paying the Taliban bounties to kill US soldiers. I guess they recall the Stinger missiles after all. So what did Trump do about it? Nothing. Whatever Putin's got on Trump, it's certainly paid for itself.

Not long ago there were three official responses from the Feds regarding police brutality. The Democrats in the house put forward a proposal which would reform the police (more or less). The Republicans in the Senate put forward a proposal that would protect the police from reform unless they really, really embarrassed the Republicans in the Senate. Trump signed an executive order that asked the cops to please stop embarrassing the Republicans, but only if they felt like it. It seems that this was at the advice of Jared Kushner, who felt that a fig leaf of pretending to care would be a good idea.

Apparently that was a bridge too far for Trump. He's decided (in the words of one of his confidants): "No more of Jared's woke s***." Indeed. It seems to be that you have to have an interesting view of the world to describe a professional racist slumlord like Jared as 'woke'. But this is the president who is threatening to veto the defense budget if it removes confederate names from Federal property, so I suppose he does have that interesting view.
