Is Trump staging a coup or just running a con? No reason he can’t do both

Trump’s odds of overturning the election were always low – now they’re zero. But suckers keep on giving him money

It’s pretty damn obvious what’s going on with Donald Trump and the election, and it’s probably not an attempted coup. At least, that’s not necessarily Trump’s primary intention with his laughably unserious procession of 50-some failed legal challenges to the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Trump and his Republican enablers lost five cases on Friday alone, with more in Michigan and Georgia over the weekend. Meanwhile, his perpetually shvitzing lead attorney, Rudy Giuliani, tested positive for COVID after appearing in court on multiple occasions without a mask.

And yet Trump and his gullible Red Hats keep reacting like Lloyd Christmas in “Dumb & Dumber.” Faced with one-in-a-gazillion odds of actually winning a case, their response continues to be, “So you’re telling us there’s a chance!”

These suckers happen to be Trump’s target customers, especially now.

………………..

There are times when I think that Trump’s playing the media for suckers.

Even with his public unwillingness to concede that he has lost the U.S Presidential election, Trump must know that he has lost. He’s just not admitting it publicly, using every means at his disposal as President to delay the public acknowledgement that he has been defeated, not just lost the presidentail election but that he lost to Joe Biden ‘Sleepy Joe’.

Now he has to weigh that ‘public humiliation’ against the possible imagery of him, voluntarily, waking/driving away from the White House on or before January 20th. 2021. That is, what is his last public act as, Former-president of the U.S.A going to be? The history books (historians) are not going to be kind to him.

If he refuses to voluntarily vacate the permises, as dictated by Law, he can expect to be ‘escorted’ off the property. Imagine that, the former slum-lord being given a taste of his own medicine!

Surely, he does not want his last day at the Office to be memorialised by a ‘perk-walk for the history books. And, it is that, the history books, is what he has his eyes on.

There have been commentaries about Trump’s ‘blatant attempt’ at a coup d’état; and it should be of serious concerns to Americans. However, he’s not that intelligent to have planned a coup. Seriously, Trump as the brain behind such a political play? He was really the puppet, the public face of the manipulators, the puppet masters. Populism was the means, Trump the set-piece, the trial balloon
of what was achievable under the existing conditions.

Before being elected as president, Trump, in all likelihood would have been nothing more than a foot-note in some obscure archives.

Now, as the soon-to-be Former-President of the U.S.A, he’ll be, formally and frequently, be referenced as a part of history, particularly American history. Much like Hitler, or Mao, Stalin, etc. are representative of their eras. So, for the foreseeable future, America will be viewed and defined, historically, by the 4 years of Trump’s Presidency.

That is, he will have gone from being a mere foot-note to that of a Historical one.

From Trump ‘the self-proclaimed billionaire, once TV show host, once president of the U.S.A to forever being recognised as a full-blown narcissistic arsehole!
