Buried in today's "transcript" or "retelling" of the call that Trump had today with the nation's governors is a plea from the governor of Maine to stay the hell away because he is a toxic stew of boiling shit:
I really thought this was going to be about Trump making demands for a cash payment or something along those lines. We know that he likes to wet his beak and we know that he uses his visits to enrich himself. Not sure what going to Maine gets him because he's going to be blown out there like any other Northeastern state. If Trump's campaign thinks they have to fight for one or two of Maine's electoral votes, then they're already on the path to being beaten this fall.
But what was buried in the call was Trump talking about himself in the third person and asserting that the people "like their president."
The hell they do.
This week should have been a stark reminder that Trump is a divisive, unpopular figure who is not wanted anywhere. For a while there, he couldn't show up at major sporting events because he was so universally reviled. And now he believes he is popular in places like Maine where Senator Susan Collins is getting beaten in the polls?
Someone is feeding Trump a huge lump of bullshit every minute of every day and it's just sad that at this point that he feels the need to tell people that the people like him.
Read the room, asshole. They don't even want you when you're hiding in your bunker.
