37. TLG couldn't build the wall, but he built a Tower to his own Ego

Nov 2022

That metaphorical tower is crumbling at its foundations, and its lone resident is beginning to realize it is in the process of crashing down.

Cheeto Jesus will not dwell quietly in the broken rubble of his giant yet fragile ego. He will rage, rage against the dying of the megalomaniacal image he constructed of himself.

In his malignancy and hatred he will lash out in nihilistic vengeance and take down with him, to the extent that he can, everyone and everything he blames for his own flaws and failures -- which he can never blame on himself.

But he largely will fail in his efforts at destruction, because the tower he built was being held up by the one thing he is rapidly losing -- real power.

He may for a while instigate a war within the Republican Party using the leverage of his brainwashed voting base, but the politicians who formerly kissed his orange ass will drop him like a rotting potato when fealty to The LOSER Guy no longer serves their interests.

Because that fealty was always transactional, by political creatures whose only principle is their own quest for power.

Well his "inner circle" cilla4progress Nov 2022 #1
