Projection language is a hell of a thing and it’s also Donald Trump’s default setting.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, every accusation is a confession with Trump (h/t on that phrase to the very wise Paul Slansky). He’s been telling us everything he’s been doing all along. I don’t know why no one figured that out in 2016, but let’s keep this one light, shall we? We’re here to drag him, not revisit our collective TFG PTSD.

“Some of us” is another version of “many people are saying,” which is to say, only Donald Trump is saying it until he gets other people to start saying it. But it’s not a cult.

Hoo boy, someone is big mad at his large adult sons and his son-in-law. He’s not mad at Tiffany or Barron because he keeps forgetting about them. And Ivanka…well, who really knows what’s going on with that toxically twisted relationship?

But he’s not wrong. His children ARE horrible. Apple, tree, water is wet, etc.

Donald Trump would walk over the bodies of his children and grandchildren (quick side bet: another $5 says he can’t name any of his grandchildren without prompting from someone else) to escape a burning building and then blame them for starting the fire. Nobody loves anyone in that family. Sad!
trump finally told a truth at his Iowa rally." — Some of us have horrible children"
When we compare the wonderful kids of former presidents to trump's kids we know what he means!

Also, this is a great time to show off my “Blocked by Trump” Quadfecta to show they’re ALL horrible!

Trump is looking and sounding rougher than ever these days. I guess the mental weight of all those depositions in New York, DC, and Atlanta is the cause of his recent drastic weight loss. Five bucks says PawPaw hasn’t slept more than a tiny handful of hours since the FBI sweep at Mar-A-Lago on August 8th.

Also, he’s not going to be announcing another run for the White House on November 14th if he’s in front of the January 6th Committee on that day like he’s supposed to be, but that’s a whole ten days from this writing. In TrumpWorld, that’s equal to ten years, but my guess is that he’s not going to be running for anything anywhere, except to his gold toilet to have more fearshits.
It really is amazing that Hillary Clinton was willing to testify for 11 hours in front of the Benghazi Committee but Donald Trump is too afraid to answer a single question in front of the January 6th Committee

Tara Dublin is a woefully underappreciated and unrepresented writer currently shopping a super cool novel that has nothing to do with politics while also fighting fascism on the daily.
