Great Minds Think Alike

Further to my post on Orange Man’s future travel plans, here are some observations from a Daily Kos writer.

Trump’s assurance that he will ‘leave the country’ should be taken seriously:

Imagine the prospect of a U.S. president threatening to “leave the country” if he doesn’t win.

More than an hour into his latest rambling campaign rally speech in Macon, Georgia, on Friday night, President Donald Trump briefly imagined a future where he loses the 2020 election to Joe Biden.

“You know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of American politics puts pressure on me,” Trump told the crowd. “Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life—what am I going to do? I’m going to say, I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics! I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know.”

Just stop and think for a moment, and imagine the absolute contempt for our Democracy that would lie behind this statement.

Believe the autocrat. He means what he says.

Imagine the contempt he has for our Constitution, for our government, for all Americans.

This thing knows it will lose, and it’s preparing the groundwork for its departure.

We all should assist it in its goal.
