Donald Trump is preparing for tonight’s big Republican debate in his usual manner: going on Twitter to trash talk the host news organization and rail against reality.

The Donald posted this message Wednesday morning:

Indeed, this has so thrown Trump off his game that he’s taken to using a (perfectly cromulent) word like “fictious.”

However, it seems he’s starting to calm down enough to correct his diction. Let’s see if he can keep it up tonight.

On Monday night, Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted, “These deaths are on Biden. They are a result of his deadly open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law.”
