The Decline And Fall Of Trumpism

Rats are starting to leave the sinking ship of Trumpism. A raft of new books are quite popular and confirmation of many suspicions of Trump’s motives.

Woodward reported that Trump confessed to lying about the seriousness of COVID-19 and has a recording. Trump can’t claim he was misquoted and saving USA from panic doesn’t work as the death-toll mounts. The time for action was months ago and Trump left it to Pence to do little or nothing. Trump is guilty of mass murder. So are several supporters/enablers.

The Atlantic reported that several sources describe Trump as calling volunteer military as “suckers” and the war-dead, “losers”. Ouch! USA worships military service. Trump instantly lost a significant margin of voters everywhere and even a slice of active military and veterans who liked Trump’s public words. Actions speak louder than words.

Mary Trump reported on Trump’s warped early life and present lack of “family values”, a sacred phrase of Republicans from the recent past. Republicans started the Lincoln Project to encourage Republicans to vote for Biden. Some will. Many independents will. The Lincolns are putting out many ads cutting Republican/conservative support for Trump to the bone.

Polling data shows Biden is leading Trump just about everywhere in approval. There’s a good chance the Government of Pigs could lose the Senate. Florida and Texas are in play. Bloomberg just donated $100million to fight for Florida for the Ds so the Ds can spread their huge funds on the other battleground states. Can you see where this is heading less than two months to Election Day? Can you see the momentum building as some states open early/mail voting? Can you see voters rushing to vote on each and every new revelation of the terrible toll Trump is putting on USAians? I can. It’s all over but the voting. Trump is going to lose almost every state he won in 2016 by a sliver of margin. He’s going to lose suburban women, other women, blacks, browns, seniors, veterans, the educated, the unemployed, relatives/friends/news-junkies of COVID-19s victims.

I suspect Trump might gain votes from white supremacists, other scum and the willfully ignorant but fortunately they are a minority in USA today. It’s too bad name-recognition alone seems enough to make one competitive in the run for the presidency but an incumbent has to run on his record and the unemployed and woke citizens can see the folly of letting Trump usurp another term. Many will see the folly of not locking him up in January, 2021.

If I were Biden I would draw up the plan to cuff Trump et al as soon as possible. I have no doubt Trump may well attempt many shenanigans to try to remain in power no matter the outcome of the vote. Fortunately, the constitution of USA turns over the presidency not to the incumbent but to the Speaker of the House should the election not resolve matters. Amen. 2021 could be a great year for USA and the world. There will be troubles but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
