NOTHING ELSE TO OFFER:

The Race-Hustler-in-Chief (TIM MILLER,  JULY 6, 2020, The Bulwark)

[T]here are only three ways to interpret Trump's remarks:

1) He is purposefully instigating racial tensions because he believes that it will help him politically if there is a race war.

2) He is a racist with no self-control and is engaging in self-sabotage.

3) He is too stupid to realize what he is doing and he is just recklessly tweeting anything that he sees on Fox & Friends or that his racist buddies said to him in a recent phone call.

I'll take a little from doors numbered 1, 2, and 3, depending on the day.

But no matter which door you open, what greets you on the other side is a president who is inserting himself into random racial disputes in a way that ignites and inflames tensions rather than assuages them.
