Frankly, he has always been a corrupt liar and cheat, but his mental decline has been pretty profound and public. The fellow was never terribly smart (check out some of the hilarious Stern segments) but he could at least speak in complete sentences and had better than a 4th grade vocabulary. IMHO

Would you say sixth-grade vocabulary?

It probably was in 2016.

4th grade now.

A source for this?  Or just parroting the ladies on The View?

I've read a couple of sources, but this was from last year that a small majority of Americans want to see his returns because they think he is hiding something.  It's results are more than likely divided between his supporters and those who don't support him.  Obviously his supporters didn't care to see them.

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/10/trump-says-voters-do-not-care-about-tax-returns-ahead-of-2020-election.html

Fast forward a year later and it's a moot point to those that oppose him.  At one point I was curious but defended his right to privacy.  At this point it's almost dead last of things I'd be interested in.  Probably like most people that oppose him I'd most interested in seeing him pack up.

The man has been a successful president for four years and if the election was held today would be getting another term.  Who cares abiut his grades from 50 years ago.

'Successful' is a relative term and I'm curious what your definition might be?  As I see it, the hallmarks thus far of his administration are; having colluded with foreign despots, having reversed a number of significant environmental protections, having gutted important regulatory agencies and social programs that serve as safety nets for our most vulnerable citizens, appointed high level positions to completely incompetent,  GOP campaign donors-i.e. Betsy DeVos, Gordon Sondland (which compromise our national security), failed diplomacy, and generally acting with a complete lack of civility or decorum.  'Successful'? Sure, in the cult of Trump or to one of his many sycophant plants?

The Public Wants Trump’s Tax Returns

The White House says voters don’t care. Here’s proof they do.

Like the sources I found that's a year ago.  I think know while most people still might want them, we've surrendered that he isn't going to provide them, so the effort is to make him look bad for not providing them and get him out of office.

I've asked myself the same question and the answer is the economy, the economy and the economy.  Low unemployment,  tax cuts, cutting regulations, working on eliminating Obamacare such as the mandate, trade deals, building his wall and getting tough on illegal immigrants....all things they voted on him to do he's been doing, or at least trying to do.  

Obviously if one was against the Republican conservative agenda he has been harmful rather than effective.

And this is why a free press is so important, and why it is dangerous to disparage legitimate news outlets.

From today's WaPo:

Did Trump Shut Down 37 Of 47 Global Anti-pandemic Programs?

The answer is no.

But that was because of WaPo reporting on the proposed closures.

A Democratic Senator Tweeted misinformation, and the WaPo analyzed his claim.

I was making a general comment to the readers of the thread. 

The WHO has increased the mortality rate of covid-19 to 3+. 

I hope they are wrong. 

https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/485808-who-coronavirus-death-rate-higher-than-initially-thought

 

Yes.

I saw mortality rate this morning.

It higher than seasonal flu, but not as easy (supposedly) to catch as seasonal flu.

We are seeing panic buying in pockets of the country.

Kroger, where I live, is now limiting the sale of cleaning products.

Toyota plant where I live, has called our HD for guidance on what to do with employees returning from Japan.

That tells me, major businesses in this country are not prepared.
