Donald Trump is like a husband whose addiction to strip clubs is putting his marriage in jeopardy. In spite of his wife’s pleas to end to his infidelity and stop wasting their money on lap dances, he double downs on hitting the strip clubs with his friends. He’s intoxicated by the attention he elicits from exotic dancers when he makes it rain, and he pays a fortune for a lap dance, when he could spend a fraction for sexual intercourse from your average hooker. He will continue to patronize strip clubs until he’s broke and his spouse has left him.
Trump is addicted to his MAGA rallies, and he has promised to hold a super-spreader MAGA every day until the election. Trump hasn’t attempted to broaden his appeal; he has refused to temper his vitriolic rhetoric and divisive language.
Trump feeds off the toxic ambience of his campaign rallies, and racist stump speeches energizes his base, but they do nothing to expand his base, in fact they repel anyone who isn’t a cult member.
But Trump prefers the safety and comfort of his revival meetings with his white evangelical base over the fear of rejection of appealing to anyone who hasn’t swallowed the Kool-Aid.
Trump’s campaign strategy of appealing to his base only will lead to his defeat; like the husband who is addicted to strip clubs his campaign will end up bankrupt, but unlike the aforementioned husband his base (wife), will remain faithful until the bitter end.
