President Donald Trump has deluded himself into a complete disconnect from reality at this point. His rhetoric has consistently fewer and fewer connections to reality, but he does not seem to care. This Wednesday morning, Trump rushed to Twitter to indicate that he would consider holding up federal funds for the state of Nevada in retaliation for their apparent vote-by-mail plans for coming elections. Trump has baselessly alleged that voting by mail opens the door for some kind of fraud, but there is no evidence for this claim. It’s as unhinged as the president’s previous claim that millions of illegal votes were cast in 2016.

Trump tweeted:

‘State of Nevada “thinks” that they can send out illegal vote by mail ballots, creating a great Voter Fraud scenario for the State and the U.S. They can’t! If they do, “I think” I can hold up funds to the State. Sorry, but you must not cheat in elections. @RussVought45 @USTreasury’

It’s just laughably ridiculous that the president is so ridiculously petty that he’s tagging the U.S. Treasury on Twitter in an attempt to threateningly shame the state of Nevada into doing what he wants. Trump is the president of the United States, but he’s acting like some kind of snake oil salesman.

This Wednesday, Trump also singled out the state of Michigan for criticism.

After claiming earlier in the morning that they too were engaging in some kind of voter fraud scheme via daring to send people applications for absentee ballots, he claimed that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) must “set you free” to be able to help with responding to dangerous local flooding. He appears to be referencing the stay-at-home demands that have been in place in the state in an attempt to stem the spread of the Coronavirus, which has killed tens of thousands of Americans. Those orders are not some kind of de facto home confinement. Trump’s claims otherwise, like his other Twitter posts from this Wednesday, constitute delusional paranoia.
