Stop assuming Trump has a plan for what comes next. He doesn’t. If he did, he’d have succeeded in rigging the election. He sure as heck doesn’t have a plan now that he’s lost. What we’re seeing is a series of petty tantrums from a lazy defeated guy who’s only half interested in continuing to fight.

Even in the wacky Trump era, the outcome of every situation is still determined by who has leverage. Trump, facing eviction and prison, has very little leverage. When people are cornered, they go down.


Being cornered doesn’t suddenly make Donald Trump more powerful. It gives him fewer options, not more. Let’s not allow certain pundits to scare us into believing that this is all heading to some doomsday climax. This isn’t the movies. Instead let’s spend our time working to win the Senate runoff races in Georgia.
