    It will be a battle between one who knows the facts and one who embraces marketing.

    It will be a battle between one who is competent and one who is not.

    It will be a battle between one who engages CV-19 with twitter attacks and one who does not.

    It will be a battle between one who is upset that the 100K CV-19 dead make him look bad and one who grieves with the family who lost loved ones.

    It will be a battle between one who uses race riots to distract from his incompetence leadership with 100K dead and 40 million unemployed and one who promotes healing and better race relations going forward.

    etc.

    A sociopath is a term used to describe someone who has antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). People with ASPD can’t understand others’ feelings. They’ll often break rules or make impulsive decisions without feeling guilty for the harm they cause.

    The common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths:
    • Glibness and Superficial Charm
    • Manipulative and Conning
      They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
    • Grandiose Sense of Self
      Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
    • Pathological Lying
      Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
    • Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
      A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
    • Shallow Emotions
      When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
    • Incapacity for Love
    • Need for Stimulation
      Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
    • Callousness/Lack of Empathy
      Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
    • Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
      Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
    • Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
      Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
    • Irresponsibility/Unreliability
      Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
    • Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
      Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
    • Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
      Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
    • Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
      Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

    Trump pretty much checks the majority of the boxes for both sociopath and psychopath.

    I am guessing trump was hoping the riots would distract people from his failures involving COVID-19. He thought wrong...

    Voter Sentiment on Trump’s Pandemic Response Hits New Low
    41% approve of Trump’s handling of COVID-19; 53% disapprove

    coronavirus has become an afterthought even tho it’s still raging throughout the country and killed over 100k Americans in just 3 months

    a HUGE 2nd wave is coming

    it’s incredible how much an ongoing global pandemic which has hit the United States the worst has been completely shoved to the side

    The key for Biden is to know when to attack Trump and when to "just be Joe".

    He is going to make a number of gaffes. He always has, but he generally gets away with it because he is viewed as likable and good natured.

    When Biden gets nasty, that is when he really gets hit hard (and rightfully so).
