Twilight Zone - Alternative Collusion

I have repeatedly found myself asking:

What motivates 45 to do /say things that are so blatantly detrimental to the possibility of engaging in virtually any degree of successful collusion?

* If your campaign benefits from investments and other various questionable acts of Russian support obtained in exchange for your promise to reciprocate by using the powers of office once elected...
why would you purposely draw attention to anything even remotely related to Russia...
much less continuously express your admiration of Vlad ?

* if your collusion agreement requires you to fill your cabinet with wealthy elites who cannot separate from their multiple conflicts of interest in order to meet divestiture and ethical standards....
why create increased opportunities for heightened scrutiny by failing to ensure that they, at the very least, submit all required paperwork in a timely manner?

* if successfully fulfilling your part of the deal requires the appointment of minimally qualified / inexperienced cabinet secretaries..
why would you choose candidates who are well known for their public opposition to the principles, missions & purposes of the very departments for which they have been nominated?

* if you intend to engage in the long term exploitation of the powers of office in order to maximize personal gains &/or to fulfill terms of collusive agreements...
why would you immediately institute a "travel" ban that would instantaneously create a world wide disruption at multiple international airports during peak travel time?

* if you are going to play a round of golf with your collusion co-conspirators at a location where both members of the press and the general public are known to be present...
why would you unnecessarily arouse the suspicions of an entire group of naturally inquisitive reporters by pointedly covering the windows of their assigned location?

* if collusive benefits are in any way related to foreign petroleum reserves...
why would you publicly discuss/mention the possibility of future opportunities to forcibly seize foreign petroleum ...
much less repeat the statement while addressing the members of the Intelligence Community ??

* if you intend to hire people tied to Goldman Sachs...
why would you constantly demonize your opponent for their ties to Goldman Sachs?

This all seems about as illogical as the idea of a masked bank robber standing at a busy intersection flailing his arms wildly -
while holding bags of cash & a gun-
in an attempt to catch a cab
While actually expecting that all who pass by- pedestrians, police, & commuters, alike -
will just smile and wave back as if participating in a parade.

Yet that is pretty much consistent with the collective GOP response thus far....

No matter
* how massive the conflict of interest,
* How unqualified the nominee,
* how detrimental the policy,
* how fiscally unsound the allocation, or
* how absurdly false the assertion...
* how blatantly obvious the collusion

The VP, House & Senate & Administration GOP members just smile and wave as they repeatedly choose to approve, support, defend, & condone every egregious act / request 45 puts before them ---

Now, even the most egotistical con man recognizes that the chances of this collective GOP acquiescence occurring naturally are slim to none...

So, it is safe to assume that 45 has some concrete tangible form of insurance in place to encourage long term compliance...

Yet, insurance alone does not guarantee that the collusion will not be investigated & possibly even prosecuted...

So why subject oneself to such an immense amount of risk?
Or better yet, how might 45 eliminate the risk all together?

Every con has a contingency plan (or 2) just in case things go off course, so what is 45's plan B?

How could an all but guaranteed epic fail be turned into an amazing victory & evidence of campaign promises kept, in the eyes of his followers?


45 just needs to be the first one to make a deal...
