Trump does not like to be labeled a “loser,” so let’s kick him while he’s down.

And our bitter divisions, already dangerously extreme, will become even more so the longer Trump maintains his stranglehold on the hearts and minds of so many of our fellow Americans.

Check out William Brangham’s interview with Ron Suskind on the PBS Newshour last night.  Move cursor to around 18 minutes to start.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKYra2e56WQ

Trump feels himself to be a genius mastermind, as portrayed on his Apprentice TV show .  Look at this description of him ‘performing’ in the Oval Office.

One of the first things senior staff members learned about Mr. Trump was that he was all but un-briefable. He couldn’t seem to take in complex information about policy choices and consequences in the ways presidents usually do in Oval Office meetings.

What they saw instead was the guy from the first debate. He’d switch subjects, go on crazy tangents, abuse and humiliate people, cut them off midsentence. Officials I interviewed described this scenario again and again.

In the middle of a briefing, Mr. Trump would turn away and grab the phone. Sometimes the call would go to Fox television hosts like Sean Hannity or Lou Dobbs; sometimes the officials wouldn’t even know who was on the other end. But whoever it was would instantly become the key voice in the debate.

His challenge now is to remain in the spotlight and show the people who voted for Biden/Harris that they are the losers. 

Trump’s niece, Mary Trump — who has come out in support of Joe Biden — said at a virtual fundraiser in September that her uncle would go “farther than you can possibly imagine” to stay in the White House.

He lost the popular vote TWICE, so that puts him in his own category x 2.

Trump is the first president who has never broken 50% job approval in Gallup polling.

Trump’s average approval rating in Gallup data is just 40%—more than 10 points less than the average number (53%) for US presidents since 1938.


WHAT A LOSER!!!

Also, it takes a special kind of loser to be so unhinged that even long time Trump propagandists Fox News is starting to distance themselves from him. 

LOSER!

And yet, he is still President, and trying to stay in despite the loss.  Go figure.

And possibly prepared to tear the house apart around him if he’s forced to depart.

If he is going down, he will take as many people, institutions and nations with him as he can.

This time he lost by 6 million votes.  That’s 100 large stadiums each packed with 60,000 people. 

Speaking of tearing the house apart.  Aid and comfort to the enemy?

https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/17/politics/rudy-giuliani-national-security-democracy/index.html

But experts say Giuliani’s avalanche of falsehoods—along with the President’s—could still have a long-lasting impact, sowing distrust in America’s electoral system that will be difficult to unwind. That would play into the agenda of US adversaries, a half-dozen national security and elections officials told CNN.?

“Real distrust in the system, casting doubt on the integrity of our electoral system, the constitutional process—the Russians and the Chinese couldn’t ask for any more,” former Trump national security adviser John Bolton told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Sunday. “This is dangerous to the Republican Party, obviously. Of paramount importance, what Trump’s doing, it’s potentially dangerous for the country.”

What a world.  Move cursor to 2:20 minutes to get the gist of it.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3xRVKkvx9A  All those joyful people!

“He is undermining the very essence of democracy, which is: You go to the poll, you vote and the people decide,” Hoyer told The Washington Post. “There’s no doubt that the people decided.”

“I think this borders on treason,” the Maryland Democrat added.

A twitter thread from Edward Norton.

I like the poker player analogy.  I’m not sure how right he is, but it’s an interesting take.

I am still worried about what the next childish gambit might be. Eventually, things get to ‘if I can’t have it, no one can’.

He likely does not know how to start a fire but I’m sure he has a personal attorney who does. Just a small fire in the West Wing with lots of smoke and damage to the data cables. It will take some months to repair and not be ready for the inaugural.

WH operations are moved to an alternate location nearer the golf course. The tricky tyke has established a way to be President without having the WH. There is nothing to pass over or be booted out of. His presidency, like his tax forms, would be forever under audit.

If Lord Dumpster can remain the King/President/Pope only in his mind is that enough? Seventy million plus folks want something badly enough to hope that he does and will remain their champion.

Interesting analysis; I like it.  If I was his lawyer, my rates would increase ten fold, paid in advance.
