The coronavirus pandemic has changed life as we know it, the new normal is empty sports arenas, concert halls, church buildings and no more political rallies.
All of a sudden, we live in a world without crowds. That’s a difficult adjustment for the average American, but it’s a devastating challenge for a cult leader who feeds off the energy of his MAGA crowds. After holding hundreds of rallies during the 2016 campaign and nearly 100 more since he was elected, Trump now realizes that it’s medical malpractice and political suicide to hold a MAGA rally during the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump needs MAGA rallies, he craves the validation and they’re the only places where he can bask in the pure unadulterated love from his devotees.
Trump is a toxic brew of racism, misogyny, homophobia and xenophobia, and he needs to vent his hatred to a crowd reception to such poison. Without his rallies he will shrivel and may die of a stroke or heart attack.
Without his adoring crowds Trump is like a televangelist without a crowd to pass the collection plates to, or a rock star playing in an empty venue without groupies throwing their panties on the stage. Without his crowds Trump is just an ugly billionaire with nobody to take his ridiculous and racist rhetoric seriously.
Let’s hope that the lack of MAGA rallies will deprive Trump of the oxygen he needs to thrive and prosper, and that he won’t have enough energy to win the general election.
