From Trumperdämmerung to MAGhAzi

Last throes. 




Truth is stupider than fiction in the Trump era.


I confess that I am darkly enjoying this spectacle of futile ranting street theater. Especially now that the Senate shall be flipped and the geriatric mutant turtle McConnell no longer able to block everything. 

It feels like I'm at a poker game with several other players gleefully pushing all their chips in while I'm quietly holding a natural Royal flush with a cold beer that I just poured at my right hand.

For icing on the cake I would say that I wish it was already the 20th but my Grandma used to tell me "Never wish your life away" so I guess I'll just be patient... and today, smiling a wee bit.

Actually, I hope he is right. Trump has lost every election that he put his fingerprints on since 2016. I doubt the Democrats would have won the 2 Georgia run-offs if it weren't for Trump. I hope he runs again in 2024.


I wonder if Junior will run with his sister - or has Donny Sr already established that he'll be the 2024 Republican candidate?

I'm pretty sure you want him in prison in 2024, if I read your other comments correctly.

Jail.

Jail.

Double jail. 


I love how Rudy says he'll stake his and Trump's reputation on his claims.  What reputation?

He wants people in that crowd to go and look at all of the paper ballots?   LOL  


They're playing "Macho Man" for Trump's entrance.

You can tell a macho, he has a funky walk
His western shirts and leather, always look so boss
Funky with his body, he's a king
Call him Mister Ego, dig his chains
You can best believe that, he's a macho man


They have "Don't Stop Believin" playing at the moment.  How soon until journey files a cease and desist order?

 Being in jail does not prevent a person from running for President.

 I saw enough. At first did not know who the speaker was. Then saw that it was "Congressman" Mo Brooks. 

I think he might just be a character invented by Mel Brooks.


Trump is on! "You don't concede when there's theft involved."


Trump sees hundreds of thousands of people in the crowd he’s addressing, and the TV networks aren’t showing it. 


“If Mike Pence does the right thing ...”


"If Mike Pence does the right thing - we win the election."

Pressure on Mikey!

If he broke the law, as I suspect he did with campaign finance law and probably others, I want him in jail. If he did not break the law, he should be a free man.

However, here is what I think will happen:

1) He pardons himself, which is probably unconstitutional, but we will only know that for sure if the DOJ challenges that all the way up to the SCOTUS. And I am not sure the DOJ has the appetite to do that. So then he will be off the hook for federal crimes.

2) NY State will still go after him, but that reduces his exposure to NY State level criminal behavior, which may or may not land him in jail.

Indeed. Perhaps Rudy was hoping that Trump would knight him as "Sir Handinpants" at a special ceremony at the Four Seasons Landscaping Co.

It's hard to recall an easier target for ridicule.


I wish Pence would validate the results during this speech.

One telling line was Trump was saying how the corruption of the media outlet was genius - then he added, I probably would have done the same.

 Mike Pence is the burnt offering at today’s Trump cult event. 


Trump's finish - "The Best is yet to come".


Meanwhile, as I watch pictures of today's demonstration it seems that there is once again a group consensus of "Pandemic? What pandemic?"

I have to wonder, -exactly how far and for how long will this Darwinian thinning of the herd go?

 Pelosi had to scold the GOP House members today for crowding into the House chamber - violating the arrangements which had been made among the House leaders. 


Trump's speech having concluded, the next item on the program is "Storming the Capitol".
