Dawn is when the sun wakes up from slumber, peeking its head out and turning the skies hazy patterns of pinks and yellows as it begins to rise. Dusk is when twilight covers our lands like a musky tent, as it relaxes and soothes us as we begin preparing for the night’s quiet.
And then there are the hours in between. In those hours, there is much to do, to think about, and to ponder. At times, those hours between dusk and dawn seem endless. For Donald Trump, I imagine he, doesn’t care about the magic of the dewy morning sun and doesn’t feel the comfort of the night’s glow.
All he is focused on is anger. Every day now, usually in those hours between dusk and dawn, news breaks about Trump. And contrary to what he says, he watches. Of course, he does. What else does he have to do in that empty palace of his?
And what he’s hearing is he is a miserable failure. He hears this from dusk to dawn. He is also hearing about all of his incoming indictments. And he’s angry. For example, Trump is claiming that Ron DeSantis was in tears as he begged for Donald Trump’s endorsement for Governor. Trump speaking to Hugh Hewitt, said DeSantis was trailing badly before Trump intervened and got his poll numbers up.
Trump is also talking about going on a “revenge tour” if he wins the presidential race, which will never happen. And he is hopping mad at Kevin McCarthy for saying the officer who shot Ashli Babbitt was doing his job.
I imagine these last few weeks of being unindicted must be nauseating for Trump. Although the man is not very bright, he has to know what’s coming, and he’s got to see the dismal fundraising numbers of his team and also hear the murmur of candidates once beholden to him who are now talking about jumping into the presidential race. He hears all of this from dusk to dawn.
Michael Cohen knows. Lawrence Tribe knows. Bill Palmer knows. They know that freedom will likely soon be a myth to Donald trump. So perhaps Trump should use these dwindling hours of freedom to keep quiet, to think about what he’s done and whom he’s done it to.
However, we all know that sociopaths are incapable of admitting wrong. Whether dusk, or dawn, these myopic and foolish people lack any awareness to look inward, and that will not change for Trump in the dawn, in the dusk, nor at any of the hours in between.
