It is karmically fitting, not to mention metaphorically apt, that Donald Trump’s last stand is beginning right now in a hotel room in Las Vegas, where many a desperate man, way behind the game, plots one last grand scheme, not only to recoup vast losses, but to win big. This is the place for that kind of thinking.

Trump is at his hotel, in full histrionic melt down mode, where he did a conference call with campaign staff and media Monday morning. The steroids must be kicking in, because he’s declaring that he’s the only one who’s on top of it, and he’s on a roll, and he’s going to win reelection. Right-o. The ghosts of gamblers past are soaking it all in. They know narcissism and grandiosity when they see it. They’ve seen better men than Donald Trump crash and burn — Elvis Presley being one of them.

I can only speculate that Trump is in Las Vegas because his campaign has decided to follow pathway three to victory, which involves winning North Carolina, Michigan and Nevada. And his campaign has poured some money into local advertising. I was driving home just yesterday and I heard an ad on the radio about how Joe Biden was going to abrogate the second amendment — how or why it didn’t say, but Uncle Joe was going to do it.

I spoke with a local political analyst, Jon Ralston, on a Zoom call two weeks ago and I asked him if Nevada was going to vote blue. At that time, he said yes. I told him that I started following his work in 2016, when it was up for grabs if Nevada was going to vote blue, and Ralston predicted it would and it did. So he said he was hoping to be right again.

All politics is local. That’s an axiom that Mr. Reality TV has never quite figured out. In the last month of a presidential campaign, especially, the national pollsters are good with trends but the state pollsters have their fingers on the pulse and they’ll tell you what’s what. Watch them and the ground game and you’ll know where the action is — and apparently Trump thinks he has a shot in Nevada. Fine. I’ll stick with Ralston’s assessment of the facts.

So now we sit back and watch Trump’s Fat Elvis phase, before he finally crashes and burns.

Re-election rejection.

Perhaps he suffered an episode of premature “rejection” syndrome?

He’s still projecting. He can barely make it through one rally in a day.

A song I heard on YouTube comes to mind: “Might be safer in the desert,/Only dust to hide your sins,/Those who wager are not clever,/Cause in heaven, well, the house always wins.” And Trump, despite his lifelong aspirations to the contrary, has NEVER been the house.

I saw the pic of him being “blessed” at that Vegas megachurch. He was wearing that smirk he thinks is a smile.

Trump is a stochastic mass murderer.

He is going to crash and burn on November 4th when he figures out that he has lost the election. I wish I could watch the flame-out.

Why does my previous comment say, “Comment awaiting moderation”? It has never done this before.

Now Bannon is saying that Trump may try again in 2024, if he loses this year. More delusional thinking in the bubble.

Only been one Prez who had nonconsecutive terms, Grover Cleveland, and he worked harder in one day than Trump ever managed in his entire life.

They’re assuming he’ll be alive (or not in prison) in four years.

There’s no running for President from in prison, as Bannon in the next cell over will be able to remind him.

Woohoo! Drugs are fun! Until they aren’t. He is going to crash so hard. I am starting to think he will be seeing mental health professionals after the election.

LOL or seeing things that aren’t there. (maybe he’s doing that now)
