Crybaby Trump Whines that ‘I Am a Political Prisoner,’ then Proves He Has No Idea What that Means

One of the most predictable personality flaws that convicted felon Donald Trump displays is his pitiful and persistent pronouncements of victimhood. For someone who is so obsessed with presenting an image of strength, he sure complains a lot about how he is so bruised and battered by his innumerable foes including those he regards as too weak to walk or “put two sentences together.”

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

Trump’s obvious frailty makes it difficult to grasp how his glassy-eyed disciples can find anything to admire in him as a leader. But that’s the nature of a cult. The leader is seen as heroic and infallible, even when he shows himself to be cowardly and feeble. And Trump has not only shown that, he has bragged about it…

Last week Trump was found guilty of 34 felonies related to his “hush money” payoff to adult film actor and producer, Stormy Daniels. But rather than accept the verdict and express remorse, Trump has again chosen to embrace his victimhood. To that end he posted a comment on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, sobbing that…

“I am the political prisoner of a failing nation. But I will soon be free on November 5th. The most important day in the history of our country.”

Poor baby. Never mind that he has no comprehension of what a political prisoner is. He thinks that the term applies to someone who is completely free to go about his business, to slouch around his Mar-a-Lago home/hotel, to play golf, and to bask in the glow of his devotees at staged cult rallies. Furthermore, he has no idea what a failing nation is either, but that doesn’t stop him from denigrating America as one. What a patriot.

Curiously, Trump posted another comment just fourteen minutes later. In that post Trump not only affirmed his ignorance of political prisoners, he also made the suffering of an actual political prisoner much worse. He said that…

“Evan Gershkovich, the reporter from the Wall Street Journal who is being held by Russia, will be released almost immediately after the election, but definitely before I assume office. He will be home, he will be safe. Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, will do that for me, and I don’t believe he’ll do it for anyone else.”

This was actually a repeat of the very same noxious comment he made two weeks ago. News Corpse reported it at the time in the following article (excerpt)…

Trump Brags that He and Putin are Holding Wall Street Journal Reporter Evan Gershkovich Hostage

Gershkovich has been held captive in Russia for just over a year on trumped up charges of espionage. The Biden administration has been working continuously to secure his freedom, just as they did for WNBA star Brittney Griner and Marine veteran Trevor Reed. But this interference by Trump isn’t going to help. To the contrary, it appears to be an unlawful attempt to conduct foreign policy and endanger the lives of Americans in Russia and elsewhere abroad.

In asserting that Putin will only release Gershkovich to Trump, and only after he is reelected, what Trump is implying is that he and Putin are conspiring to hold Gershkovich hostage in exchange for helping Trump’s reelection campaign. If Trump really has the influence that he is claiming (which is doubtful), why doesn’t he just tell Putin to release Gershkovich now?

Clearly both Trump and Putin are using this situation to benefit themselves. They both want Trump back in the White House. Putin wants him there because he is a malleable and obedient servant who fulfills the interests of Russia, such as dismantling NATO and defunding Ukraine. Trump wants to be there for the power tripping he enjoys so much, and to avoid prison and the other consequences of his illegal activities.

That’s right. Trump is so scared of the fate that awaits him, that he will even exploit the suffering of an American hostage in Russia. He will sabotage efforts to secure his freedom. And he will flagrantly lie to accomplish his nefarious and self-serving goals.

So, yeah, Trump is a prisoner. But not a political one. He is a prisoner of his own derangement and fear. Unfortunately, because so many of his MAGA Republican confederates are equally afraid to think for themselves, the rest of us must suffer as well. At least until Trump (along with those he has conned) is soundly defeated and shamed for his crimes, greed, and narcissistic delusions of grandeur. Which does indeed make November 5th an important day.
