14. The thing is, we know it would be a disaster. His advisors know it will be a disaster.

I think at one point a few years ago TFG himself would have understood that it would be a disaster. But after listening to him rant about being "allowed" to testify at his trial -- and especially after his convictions, which I'll bet he has convinced himself he could have warded off with some sufficiently Trumpian oratory -- I wonder just what it took to keep him off the stand. Because it's clear from a lot of the stuff he's spewed that he has been bathing in his own bullshit and he is convinced he is the most geeniusest geenius who ever geeniused, and that only circumstances and interference could prevent him from prevailing in a righteous showdown with Sleepy Joe.
