It’s Too Soon To Think You Can Breathe Easier.
As long as Trump roams the White House corridors, with no adults to check him, we are not out of danger. He’s angry, he’s cruel, and he’s vindictive.
Here’s what Trump told reporters on Thanksgiving Day.
“There’s going to be a lot happening between now and January 20. A lot happening.”
That sent chills up my spine.
Trump has dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz to the Persian Gulf.
Will he provoke a war in Iran? Wag the dog?
We saw who Trump is at the beginning of this movie.
In some movies there’s a twist. The good guy is really a bad guy, maybe a serial killer. And the bad guy turns out to be a good guy.
But the protagonist in the Trump movie has never deviated from the script.
Barbara Res, who for years managed Trump’s construction projects predicted…
“It’s a matter of wrestling this loss, as it were, from the victory of Biden, and he’ll do anything. And if all else fails, he will burn down the house.”
Trump’s niece Mary Trump, a registered therapist, makes the same prediction
“He’s going to burn it all down, sow more chaos and division because that’s where he succeeds.”
They both know him, have observed him up close.
Why on earth should any of us let down our guard, believe that the bad guy will turn out to be a good guy?
What to do?
Use social media to affect public opinion. Make use of your connections. Urge the media and power brokers to keep up their guard, to not be too distracted by Trump’s frivolous law suits, to pay attention to what else he is up to.
Remember, Trump warned us: “There’s going to be a lot happening between now and January 20.”
Trump sometimes keeps his promises.
Update in response to a comment below by Scott Morse
Those who wrote the Constitution put in place a formidable barrier to a would-be tyrant, whom they feared would arise.
Congress would be that barrier.
They did not fully contemplate a complicit/impotent Congress.
Thus far the courts, the media, career government employees, and the military have stood in Trump’s way.
Trump did not count on the media being as good and as tough as it has been.
Early on Trump tried to neuter the media by calling it the enemy of the people. But he failed and he now has a deadly enemy that knows him for what he is.
