The leader of the free world opined that his political opponent is controlled by unnamed powers of darkness — or at least people that live there and he specifically said, “dark shadows.” Whether he’s referring to the movie or the TV series, he didn’t specify, but a meme was born on Fox News tonight.
Donald Trump’s mind has left his body and is floating above a dark swamp somewhere, inhabited by fever dream beings and surveilled by black helicopters. He’s gone mentally. There’s no question. This is delusional and even Laura Ingraham said, “this sounds like conspiracy theory.” Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it. Trump is now officially too weird for a Fox News host. Or, maybe I should say, “again.” The look on Sean Hannity’s face the night that Trump said that Joe Biden “is gonna be your next president, because people don’t love me, maybe” was priceless.
The President claims people in the dark shadows who control the streets are really controlling Biden. He goes on to talk about a plane full of people wearing black uniforms but then says he can’t reveal anymore because it’s under investigation pic.twitter.com/AAk5GX0eWu

People who live in the Dark Shadows. Why, that means vampires. The vampires are controlling Uncle Joe? Hey, I think that’s swell. Maybe he’ll appoint Barnabas Collins to a cabinet post.
And excuse me, where was the TSA when “thugs wearing all kinds of gear” got on a plane?
I wonder what the reaction to this is among Republican leadership? Hey, Mitch! Put the plug in the jug and looky here! Donald’s talking about thugs in black uniforms and Dark Shadows controlling Joe Biden!
@GOP Senators @senatemajldr @LindseyGrahamSC @RandPaul Fellas y’all are in deep trouble. Who are those people y’all are hiding in the dark shadows. In black uniforms who control @JoeBiden. Oh baby, it doesn’t get any better than this. Our President @realDonaldTrump

Again, classic projection. The only thugs in the dark shadows controlling the streets are the ones he ordered to Portland to pick people up and put them into vans.
He is fully hallucinating now

And I hate to keep bringing up the nuclear codes, but the guy who’s got them needs to be taken in on a 5150 because he’s a danger to himself and others.
Trump is losing his mental faculties. He's talking about black-helicopter-type stuff.
I'm concerned for our nation at this point. https://t.co/jPHRqmauLO

This is a direct endorsement of Q and anyone who doesn't see that doesn't get what's happening.
Everything to him right now is about mobilizing and militarizing the tiny base he has left to violence. https://t.co/zSd7vOuzW3

Congratulations to those Americans who elected a delusional, incompetent, narcissistic fascist to the same office once held by Lincoln and FDR. https://t.co/3YMWnKSMv2

There's been a lot of this percolating on the hard-right — that the protests are some sort of Deep State/Soros/Globalist color revolution plot. Not surprised Trump is picking it up. And now it'll become GOP orthodoxy. https://t.co/IxsuhDonFU

He's seriously just repeating absurd cartoon conspiracy shit. He's days from saying Bill Gates is trying to put chips in people's heads. https://t.co/icfQ8zWxy4

This is the cartoon universe of a very mentally man, that the Republican party is committed to defending, enabling and most of all, preserving. If there was any real leadership in the party, it would be admitted that Trump is too sick to stay in office and he would be asked to resign. But that won’t happen, and we are where we are and so we’re going to run out the clock on this madness. Nobody enjoys mocking Trump’s idiocy more than me, but I have to say, he’s getting too far out there.
