Listen to the guy….
As the race heads to a close….
He sure does sound like a man who thinks he’s gonna lose….
Last time he had hope and it was fun….
That appears to be gone….
The office of the Presidency and it’s grind HAS worn down a guy who NEVER thought he’s win and wasn’t supposed to….
Oh and true to form?
He isn’t gonna blame HIMSELF at all…
Cause he hates ‘losers’…..
The president, who said at the same rally that “we’re not going to lose, we’re going to win,” has certainly not abandoned his showman’s approach to the campaign trail. But his unscripted remarks bemoaning a potential loss — and preemptively explaining why he might suffer one — offer a window into his mind-set as he barnstorms the country in an attempt to keep himself from becoming the one thing he so derisively despises: a loser.
Trump has told rallygoers he had the presidential race won until the pandemic hit, and he has accused media outlets of focusing on the ongoing health crisis to hurt him politically…
“And maybe I’ll lose because they’ll say I’m not a nice person,” Trump told conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Oct. 9. “I think I am a nice person. I help people. I like to help people.”
During the rally in Allentown, Trump looked over at a truck and mused about hopping in and leaving his presidential life behind
“I’d love to do it. Just drive the hell out of here,” he said. “Just get the hell out of this. I had such a good life. My life was great.”
Trump has said his references to losing and leaving the White House are made sarcastically. But they also reveal his insecurities about potentially going down in history as a one-term president, said Amanda Carpenter, a former aide to Cruz and a Trump critic who wrote a book titled “Gaslighting America: Why We Love It When Trump Lies To Us.”
“He always tells you what he’s thinking, right?” she said. “To him, it is embarrassing if you lose this to Biden in particular because Biden stands for things like empathy, experience and patience — which in Trump’s world are considered defects.”
Trump, who has openly mocked Biden’s mental acuity and political skills, has said losing to him would be especially devastating.
“Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do?” the president told supporters earlier this month in Macon, Ga. “I’m going to say I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics. I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country. I don’t know.”….
