Donald Trump is now telling the media that he expects to be “reinstated” as President of the United States by this August. It’s dangerous and disturbing for a former President to be talking like this. But it’s also a delusionally pathetic admission on Trump’s part that he knows it’s all over for him.
After Trump claimed that he’s about to be reinstated as President, Michael Cohen teed off on him, tweeting this: “And I’m going to grow 2 feet tonight, clock in at 8 feet tall and sign with the @nyknicks as their new center with a billion dollar contract.”
Cohen wasn’t the only one who mocked Trump for his pathetic statement:

pro tip: don't talk about Trump being magically reinstated as president, you sound like a sad idiot

If you believe Trump will be reinstated you are probably still waiting for Mexico to pay for the wall.

It’s worth noting that Trump’s sudden declaration that he expects to somehow magically be back in office later this year is coming shortly after the news that the Manhattan District Attorney has empaneled a grand jury for the purpose of criminally indicting Trump. It’s fairly clear that Trump’s statement is a desperate attempt at clinging to the delusion that he’s going to be saved by a magic carpet ride before he’s arrested.
