I didn’t mean from the outset. Obviously he wouldn’t have put his hat in the ring if he didn’t think he had a shot (although for a long time I thought he was just running the way he kind of always starts off doing and was not necessarily expecting things to be different this time And then, they were). But I think after the last debate and the audio that was released he thought his chances had dwindled ( because until the big fb targeted ad push, they had. Substantially.)
He got more reckless ( I can’t believe that was possible, but…) with his promises…he shouted out the plan to change the libel laws and sue the Press, clearly not aware that he has no federal libel laws to change, etc. so he once again proved he can’t be bothered to brush up on his government knowledge, because why the hell should he? Being totally ignorant didn’t lose him a single vote.
