Trump Turns Himself In
Let the Games Begin...
A short take…
Finally, they’re going to GET HIM! It’s not about any crime he committed. There was no crime. The crime was: ORANGE MAN BAD. He’s a RACIST! And if he’s a RACIST! there is no bottom to what they can do to him. HE WILL PAY!
Sweaty and satiated, thank YOU, they moan. Thank you for another public humiliation of Trump. It’s not enough. It’s never enough. But at least we got a mug shot!
And oh, how they’ll dance! Crack open the champagne, they’ll cry. We got a mug shot! Our ongoing reality show never disappoints. Let the games begin! Are you not entertained?
Bette Midler, Rob Reiner, Barbra Streisand, Rob Reiner, Stephen King, Carl Bernstein — they finally got him! Tingles everywhere! Euphoria Now!
THANK YOU, oh, weaponized justice system. THANK YOU, propaganda press. THANK YOU, corrupt administrative state. Thank YOU!
This is a somber day for America. But justice must be done!
No one is above the law!
[Except, you know, Joe Biden, his son, and any Democrat who ever contested an election or threatened to storm the White House or to disrupt any official proceeding because THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE]
It’s not a somber day! It’s a Caligula-like bacchanalia — a celebration! We will celebrate this day every year in the same way! Huzzah!
Today, they will feast upon the blood of the lesser-thans.
Today, they are winners.
Again! Today, they can mock and tease and laugh!
Today, they remove one more norm to go after a former president.
Today, they help destroy what’s left of America.
Blame Trump, they chant. It’s HIS fault, not ours. I mean, even though we’re in power, we have all the power, all the money, all the corporate power, all the universities, and most of everything else in American life. We don’t HAVE IT ALL, and WE WANT IT ALL!
OFF WITH HIS HEAD!
Decadence at the top, decay everywhere else - all they can do is beg for more. Please, they say, just one more exciting episode of the Trump Show! Don’t make us endure another day without an exciting news cycle!
They Have Nothing Left But Trump
They can’t tell good stories. They can’t write great music. They can’t tell funny jokes. They are under constant surveillance by the thought police. They have no choice but to go along with the mandates. They’re not free. They’ve destroyed their own habitat.
And they’re BORED out of their minds. Trump is their only entertainment. He’s their chance to walk on the wild side. But wow, right? How the mighty have fallen. Low-hanging fruit, man. This is IT? This is the legacy of the once-mighty Obama coalition? WAAA We hate Trump!
Yet, the MAGA movement is stronger than ever, and support for Trump will likely grow because look at the alternative. I mean, really look at it. Look at what has happened to our country at the hands of people who HAVE the power yet feel the need to eliminate any potential threats to that power. That must be the thing that cuts the deepest. Not a single Democrat is as loved as Trump. Not a single one can fill a stadium.
When all is said is done, they didn’t expose Trump at all. He’s exposed them. Trump never weaponized the justice system to lock her up. He never opened fire on protesters. He never threw protesters in solitary for years without charges. He never persecuted and prosecuted people for “spectral evidence.” There has to be some comfort in that.
The good news? Rome fell, and so too will their empire.
