In psychoanalysis there is the phenomenon of projection. A person ascribes his own wishes, fears or worries to another person. Projection is a defense mechanism. Your own problems are passed on to someone else - whoosh, they're gone.

How projection works in politics could be seen on Thursday evening at the last debate between the American presidential candidates before the election. There was Donald Trump on the stage, who in recent years has really used his presidential office extensively to pass one or two talers on to his companies, and in all seriousness accused Joe Biden of being a corrupt politician who received money from Russia and China received. $ 3.5 million from Moscow, $ 10 million from Beijing, and there was something about Ukraine too. That was remarkable even by Trump's standards. After all, the president doesn't just bill US taxpayers for every glass of soda a Secret Service agent drinks at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort. He and his children also earn a lot from the fact that complacent Arab princes book entire suites of rooms at the Trump Hotel in Washington.

President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden met for the second and last time on a debate stage Thursday after a previously scheduled town hall debate was For Biden , it was 90 minutes to solidify an apparent lead less than two weeks before the election. Here are key takeaways.


Yes, the way Joe Biden's son Hunter marketed his surname all over the world is unsavory. He was a moderately successful lawyer and lobbyist, but he was courted by clients from Ukraine and China because his father was the US vice president. You can call it corruption, even if it's a form of corruption that you see on every corner in Washington. People turn their proximity to power into money - that's how the game works. And, by the way, among those who play it particularly well are quite a few of Trump's closest friends.

But Trump and his rifle tensioners don't pick on Hunter Biden because they want to hurt Hunter Biden. You want to meet your father, Joe Biden, because he's about to win the presidential election right now. The attempt to defame him as a senile old man has failed, as has the attempt to attach the label "left-wing radical anarchosocialist" to him. So now the Trump camp is trying to portray Biden as a corruptible rascal who can be paid by America's enemies. Proofs? There is not any. What is there are a few incomprehensible emails and text messages of unclear origin and an alleged witness who has nothing to offer other than vague claims.

Trump refused to participate and the two candidates instead held dueling televised town halls “You have one more debate that’s been heightened because the second one didn’t occur. The Trump campaign said it would force Biden to account for his nearly five decades of foreign policy positions.

The whole attack that Trump started on Thursday is therefore surrounded by a touch of despair. The president knows that if the polls even half reflect reality, he is heading for the end of a cliff. Behind it it goes steeply into the depths. But maybe it's just a lack of imagination. Four years ago, the strategy of branding Hillary Clinton as a corrupt, money- and power-hungry fury was also successful. So why, Trump might think, shouldn't it work again this time?

Well - why? The debate also provided the answer to this question. Trump has obviously decided that the corona pandemic, which was only China to blame anyway, and that the country is doing great again because the share index is rising daily. He also reminded American blacks that apart from (perhaps) Abraham Lincoln, no American president had done more for them, and the Latinos that - keyword projection - it was in truth Biden who had the children of illegal immigrants locked in cages.

What we know about the "Hunter Biden affair", a new obsession of Trump supporters

 What we know about the © Copyright 2020, The Obs Donald Trump is not going four ways: for the president in trouble in the polls two weeks before the election, "the Biden family is a criminal enterprise."

Watching the many stumbles of both President Donald Trump and Democrat challenger Joe Biden on the campaign trail, one can’t help but wonder if either really wants to win. Neither Trump nor Biden – both old men a decade past traditional retirement age – want that kind of trouble.

That was, as Biden once annoyed and rightly noted, for the most part "malarkey", which could politely be translated as "nonsense". But the president doesn't care. Trump talks what he says, and his supporters believe it no matter how high the malarkey factor is. And the rest of Americans now know perfectly well that their president is hostile to the truth.
