Trump appears to be preparing for another run for president in 2024. If he frightens, cajoles and manipulates enough Republicans into supporting him, he might very well be the Republican candidate in this next presidential election year. What is certain is that if he does run, he will begin his campaign with the same fabricated, nonsense story that he used in the 2020 election as his emergency off-ramp from failure. That is, long before any votes are cast, he will falsely claim that the only way he can lose is if the election is rigged. He will further claim that the election will be rife with fraud, "Just like the 2020 election that I won by a landslide." His Republican operatives will concurrently be working behind the scenes to suppress as many Democratic votes as possible by eliminating mail-in voting, reducing access to polls, and limiting the period of time that valid ballots can be actually counted as valid. Of course, he would lose again because the American public has become wise to him. Unfortunately, his loss would again prompt him to cry, "Stolen Election!" and his goons would again hit the streets to set things right and restore the collective delusion of his victory being the will of "We the People." It would make the terrorist event of Jan. 6 look like a picnic. Hopefully, his many criminal activities will catch up to him by then, and he will not be able to run from his cell. Thus, my slogan for the next election will be, "Trump for Prison-ident 2024!"

As much as I am always disgusted, seeing his orange visage on television, I am happy that the former guy still has control over the GQP.

I believe him to be a golden albatross around their necks.

Pray, too, for Trump's buddy, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bone Saw.

Scott Mendelson

His Royal Highness has a wonderful sense of humor. Everyone says he's a real cut-up!

CitizenJoe

Ouch.

mworden

Please pray for Rise722, if praying is your thing.

Long life, in government housing, with full-time guards. And no parole. And no funds for purchases from the prison canteen, because he is bankrupt. And the same for his family, Barron excepted.

Hey! Did you see that golden statue of Trump for CPAC? He looks gilt-y as all heck.

mworden

I've believed him to be gilt-y as heck for years, including being guilty of assaulting my friend E. Jean Carroll. She has excellent attorneys and my hope is that she will be able to both depose him and get a DNA sample from him now that he is officially out of office.

But I don't actually expect him to ever be found guilty of anything in a court of law, not if members of the GQP are allowed on the jury. E. Jean is suing in civil court and she doesn't want a settlement. She wants the truth to come out. I'm not spilling any beans. She's made this all clear in the press as she presses forward, facing insults, job loss and defamation. She's a brave woman.

It's sorrowful that Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz don't have half her balls.

CitizenJoe

E. Jean Carroll is one tough cookie. You are fortunate to call her a friend. And, yeah: swab that $%^&! I'm so glad she kept the dress.

Why would she not ask for money? Even if she doesn't want it for herself, a judgment would be retributive and even restorative justice. Take his freakin' money.

mworden

If money is awarded by the court it would be great. But she's not willing to take a quiet out of court settlement that would shut her up and make her go away. She wants the truth to be known, not just for herself, but for the score of other women who have come forward with complaints of harassment, groping and sexual assault. She's strong enough to do this. Unfortunately, many women do not have the resources, support, or personal wherewithal to launch this type of court action. She one strong lady.

GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!!!

Scott Mendelson

I suspect that God would just as soon vomit.

Pindragon

He said Trump, not Biden.

Mike

You may have everything backwards. After all, Rise722 is a she, not a he.

NJ

Pray for him Rise, I doubt Federal and State prosecutors will. Keep an eye out for the prison he'll be lodged in so you can write comforting words to him. That's providing he's not placed in general population as other inmates will perform their justice. It's very likely if he can't live in the reality his compromised mind created he will have a psychotic break and wind up living out his days in a State Hospital.

Pindragon

Amen

Here's a little dose of reality. Trump doesn't want to be President, he wants the stupid people to send him MONEY. And, boy, do they ever. Stupid people sent this supposed "billionaire" over $200 million because of blatant lies after he was run out of the White House. That clearly puts you in the stupid category. Now some of the stupid people are suing to get it back because they realize it was all a con. Whoa, surprise! It keeps him in the news, which prompts the stupid people to send this "billionaire" their hard earned money. It's their money, they can do what they want. But let's be clear about this whole 2024 thing. Money for Trump. Nothing else.

NJ

And all the while using presidential powers to wheel and deal his quid pro quo with dictators in other countries. It's what the loser is now planning on to keep him in the fabulous lifestyle he's become accustomed to - off the backs of others. A criminal, plain and simple, and the sooner people snap out of the influence of his lies the better off they'll be.

CitizenJoe

Scott, we must recall that Eugene Debs ran for president, while in prison, and garnered more votes than he had done before imprisonment.

Other nations have had presidential candidates who were at the time incarcerated.

I do think the OrangeOne would do less well while incarcerated, but his carceral status would be a plus for any number of the MAGAQs.

I think it would be fine for him to run, from a prison cell, broke, and alienated from his similarly bankrupt and convicted family. (Excepting, of course, Barron.)

Scott Mendelson

Good point, Joe. Of course, Debs was in prison for refusing to honor a court injunction against a workers' strike. That made him more popular. Trump will be in prison due to Tax evasion and Insurance fraud. The public may be less sanguine over those charges. That wonderful hero of "We the People!" Humbug.

Mike

If the public can get over a billionaire paying $750 per year in taxes, they can get over anything.

Scott Mendelson

Mike, You make a good point.

Capitol Riot Costs Will Exceed $30 Million, Official Tells Congress. Can't this be billed to former President Trump?

Why not. Just as long as the bill for all the rioting for the last 4 years can be charged to the Democrats.
