Ask A Genius 579 – Reasonable, Confident President

In-Sight Publishing

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: I’m looking at this as Canadian overall. Trump, basically, is just losing day after day after day.

Rick Rosner: Here’s what everybody has concluded: Nobody believes he has any chance of winning. But he’s a prick, can’t stand losing, and also he’s made a sixth of a billion dollars in contributions since the election from his followers whom he’s telling that he needs their money to fight to remain president for another four years.

This is just a cynical means of exploiting the followers, when you donate to him, for him, to fight to overturn the election results. The fine print says he can spend the money how ever he wants including personal expenses. So, it is just a scam to suck money out of people.

And as more and more people realize that he’s got no chance of winning, the only people still making noise about it is just what’s that same principle that the worse he gets, the worse the cause gets, the lower the bar is for people deserting the cause.

This is leaving only people under the lower and lower bar that the greasy scum at the bottom of the barrel. So, now ,you only have the craziest and slimiest people fighting for Trump. You got this Sydney. What’s her name.

Jacobsen: Powell?

Rosner: That’s an actor. Powell, yes. She’s a crazy piece of crap. Whatever her name is, Ellis and Rudy Giuliani. They’re all just super confident and just keeping the grift going for as long as possible. But it is bad because they keep drifting; the longer they keep tens of millions of yahoos agitated and in a state of thinking that Trump is going to prevail.

Trump’s people threaten violence against people who dare to question him. One of Trump’s lawyers, the guy who headed the US cyber security agency, whom Trump fired after the guy said the election was clean.

One of Trump’s lawyers said that guy should be drawn and quartered, and then hanged. Just execute and shit like that, it just leads to just rancour. His people continuing to be dangerous assholes. But we only have less than 50 days.

There’s been news that somebody out of the White House is trying, was trying, to sell presidential pardons for money. It looks like he’s going to be as shitty as he could possibly be. He’s not going to behave with any grace or decency.

In the last 50 days, the best hope for him is that he’s just so sick of being president that he doesn’t work very hard at doing the shitty things that he could do. He doesn’t do any of the presidential things he could do.

He hasn’t really addressed COVID except for trying to take credit for the vaccine. He hasn’t held a COVID briefing in nearly six months. Even though, today was the worst day ever for U.S. COVID deaths.

The second worst day ever for new cases. So, it is continuing to explode, but he couldn’t give a shit. That’s about it.

Biden doesn’t have to. Biden’s behaving strategically in looking like appointing or announcing, who his new cabinet’s going to be and just behaving like a president should behave. But Trump is making it easy for Biden to do that by behaving like the biggest asshole ever. All Biden has to do is just do shit that any reasonable confident person in his position would do.

*High range testing (HRT) should be taken with honest skepticism grounded in the limited empirical development of the field at present, even in spite of honest and sincere efforts. If a higher general intelligence score, then the greater the variability in, and margin of error in, the general intelligence scores because of the greater rarity in the population.*
