I’ve been trying to understand the constant, deafening twaddle about Trump. Popular media shrilly repeats that his popularity is growing. No newscast, even in left-wing media, is complete without talking heads wringing their hands over Trumpazoidal influence over the zombie that was once the GOP, and the possibility of Trump making a bid for the presidency in 2024. It is certainly true that the toad with the long red tie would be a disaster for our nation and our democracy if re-elected. (My apologies to toads around the world.) But it’s my considered opinion that Hoppy will be unable to jump when the time comes.
Donald Trump loves to cultivate the myth of his imperviousness to disease, his fabulous wealth, and his genius I.Q. But it looks to me like this genius junk food addict is only a couple of Big Macs away from a myocardial infarction. From where he sits, 2024 is a very long line of cheeseburgers away. Aside from having uncertain health, the Fake 45th is so thoroughly discredited as to make him irrelevant to all but the mouth breathers up in the bleachers, and the longest of long shots to become president again. His lying is the stuff of legend. His boasted about wealth is known to be imaginary. No one with an I.Q. over room temperature ever believed the I.Q. bullshit.
Here’s the deal: Trump is about to be indicted by the New York attorney general. Steve Bannon, blinking through the morning after haze from a bottle of Glenlivet, is on his way to court cases, lawyer’s fees, and ultimately jail too. Before his dry out is over he’ll be happy to give up the boss to Congress for a shot of cheap Suntory. Please, please MSNBC, CNN, and CBS, stop with the all Trump, all rightwing GOP, all the time news. He is the enemy of our republic. You made this mistake in 2015-16 and you helped get the sonofabitch elected. Don’t do it again.
