'Loser': How a Lifelong Fear Bookended Drumpf's Presidency

‘Loser’: How a Lifelong Fear Bookended Trump’s Presidency

It is a matter of record that Mr. Trump has been a loser in many business ventures (Trump Steaks, anyone?). In fact, his greatest success flowed not from real estate but from the creation of a popular alternate-reality television persona — Donald Trump, master of the boardroom — that he ultimately rode to the White House.

This fear of being seen as somehow less than the very best is a recurring theme in the mountains of books and articles written about Mr. Trump. Many observers of Trump family history have reflected on the influence of the patriarch, the developer Fred C. Trump, who had his own version of the binary taxonomy of humanity: the strong and the weak.

Now, nearly four years later, the citizens have cast their ballots, baseless lawsuits alleging electoral fraud have been dismissed and states have certified the vote. Still, the loser of the 2020 presidential election continues to see crowds that the rest of the country does not.

It ends as it began.

1. I wish the MSM would stop perpetuating the myth that

The Apprentice was a great success. It got good ratings the first three years, finishing 7th, 11th and 15th in the ratings. It never again finished in the top 20, And got progressively worse ratings each year, although Trump will tell you it was the number one show on TV throughout its run.

It was bullshit, just like him telling people he finished first in his class at Wharton School of Business. But the media still prints this crap.

2. Excellent point..........

But I think the curtain is being slowly drawn back day by day, including articles like this.
And likewise, even more and more "neutral" and those with no vested interest on either side are speaking more truth, and, amazing enough, even FAUX SPEWS!!!!!!

The are finally realizing that THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES (and he's nothing but BULLSHIT!)!!!
