I wonder if Donald Trump even knows. Is it possible that Donald Trump this late in the game is still oblivious to the fact that he is headed for the great ash heap of history? Most likely he will be forced to resign, pay restitution and fines and finish out his prison sentence instead of finishing his presidential term. Each day that reality gets a little closer as his most favorite daughter’s husband Jared Kushner has lost his security clearance for running a pay to play scheme.
Hope Hicks must have gotten a little wake up call from the FBI. She must have learned Donald can’t save her from the inevitable, because he can’t even save himself. Hope must be terrified by threats of charges related to Trump’s crimes against the United States. Now more than twenty-five of his top political advisers have flown the coop or been run out, as the clock ticks louder and louder.
What this boils down to is, just what did Trump know and when did he know it? Did he realize it was over the day he publicly asked Russia to hack Hillary’s emails, knowing they had already done so? Did he realize it was over the day his son publicly admitted he had been meeting with the Russians to get those emails? Was it the firing of James Comey? What about the time he mocked a handicapped man? Or the time he got caught with a porn star? Or the centerfold girl? Maybe the time he said grab them by the…well, you get it.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Donald Trump’s only defense of horrible inappropriate behavior is even more vile behavior. His scandals are gradually being proven beyond any reasonable doubt, and yet he is only getting more brazen by the moment. Trump didn’t survive any of these scandals. It’s just that the bigger the fish, the longer it takes to reel him in.
