Trump's co-author leads the chorus
(BenQQ 8.19.17) Unable to find actual violations of the law, such as in the Great Russian Delusion and the Mueller Million Dollar Big Dig for any crimes, the never Trumpers and pretend professional media are resorting to predicting Trump's voluntarily leaving the White House--while others openly allude to his assasination. Self serving sophistry all.
And what is the president's big offense that would drive him from office? Style. They don't like his language, talking back to the barking media pack, his lack of academism and info prep. He does not look like anything they've ever seen in Washington. In short, their problem is his otherness. Therefore, its simple: he is not one of them and he's got to go.
Indeed, except when they were accepting their donations and rhetorically claiming to represent them, most of the lifer power elite never had their real world survival skills honed in a dog eat dog world such as business development nor, God forbid, real estate. Ewwww. Trump's voters got it, unlike most of the corporate crypto media and entrenched D.C. swamp dwellers who still don't get it to this day,
His detractors want us to agree that since doesn't think like them (read professional gownups who condescendingly think of Trump voters as mere children as liberals still do for minorities), his character is of such deficiency he's got to go. What do they point to? Style.
The most vocal critic was and continues to be Tony Schwartz, co-author for The Art of the Deal, the book Trump cited often in the campaign for better credentials in negotiating.
Says he in his resignation prediction in independent.co.uk: “The circle is closing at blinding speed. Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and Congress leave him no choice...Trump's presidency is effectively over. Would be amazed if he survives till the end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner.”
The power elite have now piled on Trump like the rabid antifa still do on Trump supporters. Among those, disappointingly enough, was our own Congressman from Tennesse, Sen Bob Corker (R), who recently proclaimed "The President has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful," Corker added, "He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today, and he's got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that," according to a video posted by local news website Nooga.com. Other Republican senators Lindsay Graham and Jeff Flake, have distanced them similarly.
Attackers like Schwartz and especially Republican subversives such as Corker and Graham, may think they are on the safe side of abandoning the Trump ship and his voters. However, Trump is not likely to let a legacy media mounted attack for his handling of Charlottesville prevail. Next week is another day. If the remaining "party professional" staffers around Trump don't convince him to become milquetoast, our golden quaffed Commander in Chief will mount a new strategy, including a new media operation, to transcend the ceaseless barking of the old. He won't let the voters forget. He doesn't like to lose.
However, if the never Trumpers, rhinos and corporate elites are successful in driving Trump out, it will herald a third party that will, if not successful, undermine the old Republican establishment forever. The rhinos are playing with fire in thinking they can survive, especially if they believe current polling. They haven't learned.
The Dems are rummaging their party wreckage for a viable competitor to Trump, but few are among their deadhead already-tried-that ranks. However, outside is one possibility: internet conglom Mark Zuckerberg and his Guaranteed Universal Income (sic) plan. If Zuckerberg plays it right, that notion, which I have written about favorably in the past, will light a match under the Dems that could become the electoral conflagration for which they so desperately crave.
Their problem is, the Republicans could proclaim the "great compromise" if benefits and the bureaucracy were jettisoned for individual payments to legal (no doubt one key difference from the Dems) citizens. I will write on this more as the Zuck impinges on the national debate just as Trump did many mythical years ago.
