        Hitlet was like 30. Trump is like 85. I agree with you, but I’d say it’s a coin toss Trump drops dead by July 6, nevermind January 6, that fat old fuck. Not sure he’s going to mount a comeback.

          I’m not really worried about Trump specifically so much as the movement he’s unleashed. Cult 45 is going to lose their fucking minds when he finally dies… he could literally choke to death on Putin’s dick on live TV and it’d still be pitched as some kind of deep state hit job that merits retaliation. This shit doesn’t end with Trump.

            I hope you’re wrong. Sure, some in this movement are die hards, and there will always be a supply of batshit crazy candidates for them to cling to. Many caught up in MAGA are not die hards, they are caught up in a personality cult, and when the personality is gone, they will abandon it, too.

            I believe Russia has been cultivating Trump since the '80s, and he was a household name before he got into politics though. Someone like that will not be easily replaceable.

            His inevitable fat fuck death can’t happen soon enough.

              I don’t think Russia cultivated Trump as potential political figure (at least not until 2015), but I agree with everything else you said. I don’t think winning in 2016 was Trump’s initial goal when he announced he was running; I think it was just another one of his grifts and to gain publicity.

        You don’t see police beating KKK members for the same reason you don’t see Batman beating Bruce Wayne.

        Well, not just the FBI, please. But yes, send them in to start making arrests prior to the shit really happening. But preemptively set up the National Guard to let those that plan on fucking around, to REALLY fucking find out this time. Not just one Ashley Babbitt.

        Last time I remember so many things he said right before, and me thinking "is he going to stage a coup? He’s pretty much saying he’s going to scare a coup but Naaahh, even trump can’t be THAT insane.

        I was naive, but why the fuck was the FBI, DHS, etc naive on this?
