It's a giant stretch to assert that Trump wanted a crony in place because of the Epstein case.

I don't think it is. The timing matches up, Trump's connections with Epstein give him a strong motive, and he's repeatedly interfered with federal investigations for his own benefit before. Again, there's no proof, but it looks like the most likely scenario, especially when you bear in mind that Trump's only real priority is looking out for himself and Barr's only real priority is catering to Trump.

The most likely? How about just having a favorable court in your hometown? That’s a waaaaaaaaaaaay more likely scenario than Trump trying to cover up his ties with pedo-island.

Fair.  But ya gotta admit, Eagle, sitting on top of a cirlcle with your national symbol on it.  Kiiiinnnddaaa makes ya wonder.
Does it, though? I mean, does it really, Dave?

American symbolism is eagles all over the place. Eagle hiding behind a shield holding some arrows and fresh herbs (Great Seal). Eagle on a ball (Marines). Eagle holding a key (NSA). Eagle holding some arrows, but this time no fresh herbs (DoD). Eagle holding a shield while tripping balls in front of a vapourwave globe (Cyber Command). Eagle sitting on top of an American flag emblem (Central Command).

The abuse of the poor eagle long predates the Nazi regime, too. This is a terrible take.

I'm gonna just think it looks similar enough that its in poor taste and call it a day.  Patters, man.  We all see different ones.

More juicy stuff. It looks like this book will be the first book about Trump that reads like an episode of Dynasty.

Juicy stuff.
The stuff about his parents checks out.
He is clearly mentally ill with serious personality disorders. The way he acts when anyone questions, rejects or criticises him isn’t normal.
If you are making your claim without evidence then we can discard it without evidence.

Looks like somebody recognized that supporting Trump was costing him street cred and is trying to get it back.

Meanwhile I hope he does run for president. Why would anybody presume he'll take votes away from Biden when he aligned himself with Trump for so long? Please run, Kanye!

People forget. Just like they forgot how Trump earlier this year did everything he could to downplay and blow off the coronavirus outbreak, leading to his approval ratings bizarrely going up once he started going through the motions of taking it seriously. I don't know if he'll end up taking votes away from Biden, but anyone who's dumb enough to vote for Kanye fucking West is presumably going to have completely forgotten how supportive he was of Trump.

All of The Donald's radicalized rednecks completely forgot how supportive he was of their hated Lizard Hillary.

Of course, people in general have forgotten all about the pussy grabbin, multiple bankruptcies, his promise to release his tax returns, dissing war vets, praising dictators, etc, etc..

When you spew as much garbage as this man does, the mental queue for bullshit can only store so many queries. So yes, people forget. They also forget because most people do not have the mental schemas that would allow them to categorize this amount of .... what’s even the right word for it? ....

Exactly this. They haven't forgotten, they just don't care.
And he wasn't Hilliary, that was a big factor in why he won. There were lots of "Anyone but Trump" people but a lot of "Anyone but Clinton" people too.

When did this happen? I just checked to make sure I wasn't seriously missing something, but no, Trump's approval rating is still holding under 40%. His net approval is still underwater by double digits. Polls are still predicting a sweeping Democratic win. The media is still citing his handling of the coronavirus as part of the reason for his current dismal ratings.

If it's just the temporary "rally round the flag" effect you're referring to, well that really did die quickly didn't it? Indeed it's a perfectly normal part of politics that Trump couldn't even take advantage of for more than a couple weeks before exposing himself as a fraud. In my view it does not support the notion that people just forgot, it mainly highlights how desperate we were for a real leader in a time of crisis, and how quickly we subsequently realized we don't actually have one.

How are you defining "being led"? I feel like you're using a completely different context from the one I intended and I want to make sure I understand what you mean before I answer.
