5. After Trump -- LOL

Last edited Wed Jul 22, 2020, 04:34 PM - Edit history (2)

When he's finally out of office, there's one final norm that Donald Trump is going to violate, and that's the one which says that ex-Presidents go away and shut up.

Trump is NEVER GOING AWAY! Even if he loses, he knows he has millions of willing rubes out there that he can target for years to come. The "election will be fixed" narrative he's trying to build is as much about keeping the rubes close as it is about staying in power -- if they all believe that their cult leader was cheated out of office, so much the better for his hold over them going forward.

The idea that Trump will simply disappear and the Republican party will re-emerge phoenix-like with a brand new outlook is just hilarious. Trump is going to be out there EVERY SINGLE DAY (until he either dies or is locked up) flooding the zone with Twitter bullshit, interfering in GOP primaries, and basically doing everything he can to keep his cult members riled up (and, of course, donating to the cause).

The last thing he's going to do is willingly hand the Republican party back to its "rightful owners." He owns it now, and he won't give it up easily, even (and maybe especially) after he leaves office.
