Trump before election and after

Trump had it made. His shady dealings had made him rich, he was famous from reality TV, he hung at mar-a-logo with people kissing his butt. The campaign was great, rallies, calling into "Fox and Friends" from his gold toilet. The cable TV coverage was awesome! Trump could say anything, criticize anybody, rake Hillary and Obama over the coals, and call people names like a kid on the schoolyard. He had no record of any public service, and no government experience. But he could fix it all! Yee Haa!

Then he won. Now he has to go to work, know stuff, make decisions, and the press and the democrats are up his rear with a flashlight. No way he signed up for this.

America, the end of Trump is near. Brace yourself. He won't go easy.

1. Been thinking about this for years?

Why did he run? Why did his kids allow him to do it? How did they not know what got to happen, gonna happen?

He must be broke. It's his biggest fear. Or, he believes his own bullshit. A deadly flaw.

2. Same thing brought down

Pablo Escobar, his ego clouded his criminal judgement.

And I do not think they thought would win. They underestimated the gullibility of the american populous.

19. Or in the Republican vernacular....

"misunderestimated" the gullibility of the American populace.

3. He ran because he is a narcissist

who had such a great opinion of himself, that he thought being POTUS would be a piece of cake. He literally had no idea what all it entailed or that he would have to learn things and be accountable to other people. I'm sure he liked the idea of being so powerful, too, and having everyone suck up to him .... the salutes .... hearing himself called "Mr. President" ..... "Hail to the Chief" ..... being in the spotlight 24/7 ..... that all appeals to him on a grand scale. And, being so conceited, he really believed that people would just adore him!

6. I really think he didn't intend to win.

He was going to make mega (maga?)-bucks speaking, going on talk shows and putting out ghost written books bashing President Hillary and Democrats.

9. Yes.

I think the plan was to run a hateful campaign, lose and be the star of his own hate network, "Trump TV" a huge success fueled by Hillary hatred and displaced white male angst.

It would have been a more successful long con. He could have gone on with that forever.

As it is, I think even Putin had no idea how vulnerable the US was to the Russian secret sauce of authoritarianism + reality tv + psy ops.

I watched a doc two years ago, in which someone who knew Trump well said, "He will either become President, or die alone, pissing in a jar in an empty room somewhere."

12. turdface holds a grudge until he gets payback

 

I firmly believe that Putin has been grooming turdface for decades, from when he first started arranging financial support for him.

I couldn't guess when Putin first start whispering sweet nothings in his ear about running for president. But I bet it happened. Chaos could be initiated.

I feel the clincher was the joke told by Obama at the foreign correspondents dinner. That was public humiliation by Obama, and required a major response. Therefore, the run. He is known to have held grudges for decades.

He didn't expect to win, but knew he could really increase brand recognition during the campaign AND in doing so he could manipulate the media to give him free air time 24/7, which is why he said and did all that he did. Air time. After all, HE was a STAR. Maybe the end goal was his own tv network...

Unfortunately for everyone on the planet, he won. He was as surprised as anyone. So it took a few days for him to formulate a strategy to continue to pump his brand.

But he had no idea the media (and to some extent the American voters) would finally wake up and he would lose control of the narrative. But since he is beginning to realize that he is looking at a no-win situation, he is going to FUCK US ALL for not allowing him his chance at becoming the dictator/oligarch he believes he is entitled to be.

Hopefully Mueller will have such an airtight case, on so many charges, no one can deny the guilt, even his koolaid drinkers. They may still support him, but they will know they are supporting a crook and scam artist, but must admit that they don't give a shit, because he hates all the right people.

And everyone else will know it.

But turdface doesn't expect to go to jail. He (and spawn) will be on his plane to Saudi Arabia before anyone is aware of it. (At least that is what he is planning....)

I just hope it all doesn't turn into another Fitzmas.

As usual, YMMV.

17. He won for one, simple reason...

Putin wanted him to win. What better method to destroy American strength, to alienate our allies, to bring our status DOWN in the eyes of the world? Mission accomplished. But we ain't done yet. Justice will be served.

7. Work?

Not trump. He is simply the CEO who lets others do the actual work. The only thing you could call work for trump is sitting in front of the TV, and going to rallies where he is adored by the brain dead base.

8. The disastrous Mid term results exposing him

Will led to his departure soon , as they run from him as more continues to expose him and all those involved in corruption , election fraud, treasonous acts against this country, and many more crimes he'll be facing that's even worse. Its now only a matter of time as Mueller has his sights set on his prosecution of him for all to see.

16. The only public service that he is capable of - is to leave office soon!

I'd prefer the images of FBI and straightjackets with his lap-kids trailing along.

But I'll take an image of him getting into a uber car and driving off into the smog.

Make it so nobody wants to visit there. Bankrupt it.
