Earlier today Donald Trump gave away that he’s at least subconsciously trying to get himself thrown in jail as soon as possible, when he posted this on social media: “IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I’M COMING AFTER YOU!” If he keeps making these kinds of posts, the judge in the case will lock him up while awaiting trial. But things are even worse for him than that.
Trump also posted this to social media about the criminal charges against him: “It is Election Interference, & the Supreme Court must intercede.” To be clear, there is literally no such thing as the Supreme Court interceding in this matter. Even this Supreme Court wouldn’t have a path for somehow magically making his indictments go away on account of the fact that there will be an election in the future.
Moreover, Trump’s attorneys have surely explained to him that there is literally no such thing as the Supreme Court being able to “intercede” in any of what’s happening to him. This is a desperate panicked cry for help, to an entity he knows cannot help him in the way he’s asking. It’s the kind of magic rescue fantasy you resort to when you know you’ve already lost, and you know there are no reality-based solutions that could possibly save you.
Trump is also admitting by default that he knows he has no chance of being viable in the 2024 election. Otherwise he wouldn’t be begging the Supreme Court to find some way to magically intervene in the election. This is all a sign that Trump truly, truly knows it’s 100% over for him. Otherwise he wouldn’t be acting like this.
