I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams Hamlet William Shakespeare
January 20th is going to be one mondo bummer day for El Pendejo Presidente. There isn’t even a legitimate argument to be held anymore. Donald John Trump is a clinical sociopath, and an obsessive narcissist, and on that day, the two worst nightmares of his life are about to come true.
For starters, on January 20th Donald Trump will become that which he most abhors. For more than 50 years now, Donald Trump has had a favorite epithet for all of those below him, or those who try and fail, and that word, which is, for Donald Trump literally a 4 letter word, is loser. And at 12:01 on January 20th, Donald Trump will become what he most hates, a L-O-S-E-R! Trump will become only the fourth President in US history, joining Herbert Hoover, Jimmy Carter, and George H W Bush to be denied a second term by the voters. There is no way to sugar coat this, and whether admitting defeat or not, Trump has admitted that he will no longer be President. That is a death dart to the ego.
But the worst is yet to come. Because, on January 20th, Donald Trump will finally become irrelevant in the mainstream media. And for an obsessive narcissist, the lack of public adulation is deadly. Not only will Trump lose his bully pulpit as President, he will also lose, for the most part, barring court appearances, any relevance in the national mainstream media. That, Trump could handle. But what just came next may well be the kill shot.
Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram announced that they had all immediately suspended Trump’s accounts, either permanently or indefinitely, for gross abuse of their user policies. This is the true kill shot for Trump’s future plans. Trump could survive this being relegated to the second tier status of the Sinclair network, as well as the Patriot Network, as long as he could communicate directly with his racist horde via social media. But that has been shut off now. After the announcement from Twitter, Trump immediately went to the Official White House Twitter feed to voice his displeasure. Since the tweet was obviously from Trump, a newly banned user, Twitter pulled the post.
Look, forget about Trump’s non existent 2024 chances for a moment. Trump is at heart a con man. Since his loss, Trump has used social media to fleece the suckers with mass requests for donations to support his nonsensical court challenges, most of which money he pockets directly through his Leadership PAC, where the funds go. But for his text and e-mail blasts to have any real effect, Trump requires a massive social media presence in which to make his desperate, personal pleas for filthy lucre. And the Big Three just shut him down, and off.
Look, Trump never wanted to be the President, and he could manage to explain away his personal loss. But Trump is, at his heart, a grifter, and what is most important to him going forward is to be able to continue to run the grift, and continue to fill his pockets. The loss of the national mainstream media is bad enough, but the loss of his ability to marshal mass social media is something he never thought possible. In 12 days, Trump will truly become a man on an island. Adios, Motherfucker!
