An Utter Jackass


I think it's all over but the shouting: Trump is toast. Botox Face now leads him by 10%, thanks to his lack of political savvy. Instead of doing the things that win elections, he's now bogged down in minor personality conflicts that he's blown out of proportion: Ryan, McCain, the Khans, crying baby, etc. A jackass does this, and he's clearly a jackass. Talk about lost opportunities.

Trump's advisers have been trying to get him to change course, stop the jackass behavior, and engage in winning strategies. But it's very hard for a jackass to stop braying, and so Trumpo is throwing away his one chance to defeat Botoxia, get into the White House, and do this country some serious damage. What a waste.

He could have been the End of the End. My Twilight book was about the beginning of the end; DAA was about the middle of the end. Trumpo could have rung the curtain down on the whole farce. But no, instead we are going to have 8 more years of ad hoc crisis management, during which time, I predict, we shall see the emergence of a new, more virulent Trump-type or Trump movement, as Hillary's Weimar admin crashes down and the country becomes increasingly dysfunctional. I wouldn't even rule out the possibility of a coup d'état. She's a douche bag; she has no vision at all, beyond being president (much like Obama); and virtually everyone hates her. Not exactly the best credentials for governing.

So, amigos, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but then I predicted B-Face's victory months ago. Now, it seems like a sure thing, and by mid-November, Trump will retreat into obscurity. Instead of a fast and furious ending, we shall continue to writhe in our death throes. The clowns at the NYT will continue to pen their impotent analyses, social inequality will deepen, Hillary will pick out the targets in the Middle East so drones can murder innocent civilians, the Bernie leftovers will pretend they have some sort of clout, and so on. What more can I say?
