Trump thought he had the winning hand. But it was a mirage — all smoke and mirrors. Isn’t it lovely to see the one who thinks of himself as a master con artist (which he isn’t) get deceived himself? Trump was deceived by his own ego, which managed to convince him that he was winning.
But that just is not the case. In the game with Lady Justice that Trump chose to indulge in, he was, of course, dealt the losing hand. The Department of Justice is a place that stands for Justice and love of country. It is also a house of brilliance. And Trump, trembling before such a house, could not hope to outwit or outsmart it.
He bet the farm that he could and he lost. Those within the House know how to play the game. They’ve dealt with far worse creatures than Trump. Their minds are brilliant, and they know the one thing that Trump and his corrupt minions do not.
The House doesn’t lose. Trump thought the day was his — that it would be a celebration. And the Department of Justice has outfoxed him. It’s been a barrel of laughs watching Trump try in that twisted way he has to match wits with the House of Games. Only he can’t. He’s no match for them. I imagine inside the House they know Trump bet wrong.
And it is fun watching his panic grow as he tries his luck, again and again, only to be reduced to yet another Truth Social meltdown. Today all anybody is talking about is the secrets the traitor stole. Nobody cares about Trump’s manipulations and attempted up-staging. It doesn’t work.
Trump made the big bet, he rolled the dice, and he lost. And inside the Justice-loving House, where the rule of law means something, they are closing in as Donald Trump finds his escape is just not in the cards.
