Nixon 2.0 The cover-up continues as “historic, unprecedented corruption” on Trump's Scorched Earth

on

As weary as we have become with the corruption and venal stupidity, the path to the bunker will feature even more carnage even if Trump is defeated at the polls.

Reopening schools is CDC’s “highest risk” for COVID spread which is Trump’s ultimate revenge on the nation when its “second wave” occurs. As Larry Kudlow says, “just go back to school, it’s not that hard.” Because Carnage.

It’s not hard to see what kinds of havoc will occur between 4 November 2020 and 20 January 2021. A military strike that starts a new regional war, dropping sanctions everywhere, plus that early resignation to gain Pence’s federal pardon; that’s if Trump loses. Expect a Venezuelan invasion or something like it in the first year if he wins. Peace with Honor 2.0.

Abuse of power continues and there will be a second impeachment in the second Trump term.

Depravity and Incompetence

The founding falsehood that set the tone for the most mendacious presidency in U.S. history — the original Big Lie — was all about crowd size. In January 2017, President Trump and his spokesperson inflated his inaugural audience with a series of grotesque falsehoods. Trump even attacked the media for telling the truth about his paltry inaugural turnout.
So it’s fitting that as Trump’s first term — and perhaps his presidency — winds down, he is confronting the very same fear that produced that original series of foundational lies: The fear that the crowds just aren’t showing up the way they’re supposed to.
Two new reports — one from NBC News, and one from the Associated Press — shed light on an internal debate now underway among Trump advisers about how to manage both this new reality and Trump’s own emotional struggle with it.
The picture that emerges is one in which they are working to balance Trump’s insatiable need to feed off adoring crowds against the reality that people might be disinclined to brave the plague conditions that he did so much to unleash on the country. The imperatives of satiating Trump’s megalomania are bumping up against the consequences of his depravity and incompetence.
[…]

Now Trump is facing the prospect of losing even his ability to create and experience the illusion that an enormous portion of the country remains enthusiastically behind him. And it’s all because he can’t conjure up the power to seduce people into believing the lethal virus he has done so little to curb doesn’t really exist.

It must be a special kind of hell for him.
