Ultimately, as Donald Trump becomes more desperate, he will reveal more of his true self: a violent predator who will almost always attack instead of retreating or otherwise surrendering.

 Last Saturday, Donald Trump took one more step on this journey when he threatened the life of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. On his social media platform Truth Social, Trump accused McConnell of having a “death wish” because he has (on a few specific occasions) supported legislation sponsored by Democrats. Trump also used a racial slur to describe McConnell’s wife, former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, calling her “his China loving wife, Coco Chow!”

Political scientist Brian Klaas, author of “The Despot’s Apprentice: Donald Trump’s Attack on Democracy,” wrote on Twitter that Trump’s threats were “[t]otally detached from reality, inciting political violence — putting a target on a senior member of the U.S. Senate — and a new racist nickname. We can’t just pretend this isn’t happening, because these posts are radicalizing more and more extremists every day.”

Like a cornered animal, Trump is ready to lash out — and he longs to make his violent fantasies come true
