We all knew the ruling was coming soon, and we all knew what it was going to be. There was zero suspense or surprise involved. But that said, today’s U.S. Court of Appeals ruling against Donald Trump on “presidential immunity” was enough to shatter his life. We all know the Supreme Court wants nothing to do with his criminal cases, so this appeals court ruling was Trump’s last ditch hope of somehow magically avoiding prison.
Now that Trump has lost this ruling, and his life is nothing more than a collection of shattered pieces on the ground, he’s begun ranting pretty obsessively about.. beer. No really, beer. Trump started going down this road yesterday when he suddenly started ranting about the long-forgotten controversy surrounding a Bud Light ad starring a transgender woman. It was a reminder that Trump is now so deep into dementia, he can’t even seem to remember what’s going on in the present tense. His failing mind just jumps around to whatever time periods he can remember.
But now that the U.S. Court of Appeals has indeed destroyed Donald Trump’s life today, Trump is going much deeper down the Bud Light rabbit hole. He went on a lengthy and almost completely incoherent rant about it on social media today, which ended with him announcing that Bud Light deserves a second chance. Why? That wasn’t clear.
Trump is also vaguely threatening to destroy other unnamed major American companies for being “woke,” which is weird given that Ron DeSantis based his entire campaign around being “anti-woke” and he ended up failing hilariously. Not that Trump probably even remembers who DeSantis is at this point.
So there you have it. On the day that will be looked back upon as the last day of Donald Trump’s life that mattered, here he is ranting about beer. It’s a fittingly pathetic ending for a senile career criminal who now has nothing to look forward to in life but prison.
