I swear, this is almost too stupid to be true, but when you’ve spent as much time paddling on a raft in Trump’s personal cesspool, you realize that nothing is actually too stupid to be true.
As I type this, Traitor Tot is standing behind a podium at Mar-A-Lago, surrounded by American flags, to announce his candidacy for President in 2024. And God help us, he actually has an updated 2024 campaign slogan. It’s MAGAGA. Yeah, Make America Great And Glorious Again! Just different enough to force the sheeple to buy new hats and t-shirts. But does anybody here remember the racial slur MAKAKA that former GOP gubernatorial candidate George Allen used against a black progressive voter at a rally several years ago? And yes, Allen lost that election.
NBC News is reporting that Traitor Tot has already filed his paperwork with the FEC for his 2024 run. Nice going Emperor Numbus Nuttus. You just kissed goodbye to some $100 million in your Leadership PAC. Which means that Trumpenstein is now going to have to go back to hitting up the RNC for his legal bills, and start screaming for the GOP sheeple to donate to his election campaign fund so that he can continue licking his nuts at campaign rallies, all on the dime.
But here’s the funny thing. His Lowness is 76 years old. And like Air Supply, or 3 Dog Night, or Styx, he’s decided to Bring the band back together for a reunion tour. Reporting is that Trump has already told advisors that he wants a leaner, smaller campaign staff for this run than his 2020 flop, and that he wants to run his 2024 campaign on the outsider insurgent platform that he successfully ran on in 2016.
This is so politically stupid that it defies rational description! And I don’t have to waste a lot of time with paragraphs of history and platitudes. It’s brain dead stupid for one simple reason.
In 2016, Trump truly was an outsider, insurgent candidate. He was a total outsider, a multimedia celebrity with universal name recognition, a loud, foul mouthed racist who appealed solely to the worst in the US electorate. And he rode his filthy campaign all the way to the White House.
There’s an old saying, You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Trump made his first impression in 2016, And he rode that into power. But that was the end of his first impression. Trump had four years in the White House as President, and when they were over, American voters bounced his sorry ass out of office by a record 7 million votes. In politics we have a word for that, it’s called A fucking record! Voters had 4 long, bitter years to measure Trump’s persona up against his actual performance. And they found him sadly wanting.
You can’t go home again. Personally, I love the idea of Hair Twitler trying to rerun his successful 2016 campaign again in 2024. After all, there’s a reason he didn’t run it in 2020. Because he had an actual record that he couldn’t run away from. And if he continues to run a 2016 campaign again in 2024, he’s going to run into the same Great Wall of China that led him to the worst electoral defeat in US history in 2020, by some 7 million votes.
But The Trumpster Fire’s preemptive strike running for President in 2024 ensures one thing. It ensure that the simmering GOP civil war will only erupt into a full boil. Which only means total chaos in the GOP for leadership positions in the House and Senate. And it gives the Democrats the early edge to retain the White House in 2024, along with the Senate, against headwinds, and expanding the House majority beyond what it was in 2018. White suburban women voters won’t vote for Trump, it’s just that simple. At this point, the Democrats don’t need to do anything but put forward qualified candidates, sit back, and watch the GOP implode.
