The time has come for Donald Trump’s “very big announcement”, the big reveal will take place at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on prime time (of course).
Despite being impeached twice, inciting an insurrection, undermining democracy by spreading the Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was rigged, and notwithstanding suffering the humiliation of his anointed election deniers going down in flames in the midterms, his big announcement is expected to be that he’s running for president again.
I’m not surprised that a man with such a huge ego, has the audacity to run for president in spite of such a dreadful legacy. After all, Trump believes that the rule of law doesn’t apply to him, and he thinks he can get away with anything, including murdering someone in broad daylight on Fifth Avenue.
I’m not surprised that his evangelical base is still soundly behind him, they will support the sociopath until the bitter end because his determination to establish a White Christian Nationalist government trumps all of his grievous faults.
Trump’s very big announcement will be met with cheers and amens from his sycophants and cultists at Mar-a-Lago, but it will fall flat with most of the electorate, including many Republicans who won’t forgive him for costing them control of the Senate in the midterms.
