It’s always easy to tell what is bothering Donald Trump most. His emotionally stunted, childish behavior gives him away every time. Whatever he is whining about with the greatest fury is what is gnawing at his fragile ego, and he will unfailingly throw a public tantrum over it. After all, Trump, in his own words, described himself as “the most fabulous whiner.”
On Saturday Trump unleashed another of his histrionic harangues. This one, like many before it, was almost entirely devoid of substance. He doesn’t bother to explain the reasons for his irrational hysteria. He merely opens his douchenozzle and lets it spray. But it invariably comes out like an impotent drip that couldn’t dampen an already used Kleenex.
“All the Democrats want to do is put people in jail. They are vicious, violent, and Radical Left thugs. They are destroying people’s lives, which is the only thing they are good at. They couldn’t get out of Afghanistan without disgracing our Country. The economy and inflation are a disaster. They’re letting thugs and murderers into our Country—their DA’s, AG’s, and Dem Law Enforcement are out of control. This is what happens in communist countries and dictatorships, and they don’t think they’ll be held accountable for rigging the 2020 Presidential Election. The Jan. 6 Unselect Committee is a coverup for what took place on November 3rd, and the people of our Country won’t stand for it.”
Let’s unpack this pile of pomposity. Trump begins by complaining that Democrats want to “put people in jail.” That’s true, as far as it goes. More specifically, Democrats want to put criminals in jail. And that’s what Trump is afraid of. He knows that he’s guilty of an avalanche of atrocities. And evidence keeps coming out that is likely to result in his indictment and prosecution. His flunkies on Fox News were just exposed for having communicated with him during the January 6th insurrection that he incited. A federal appeals court just ruled that his White House records must be turned over to congressional investigating committees. And he is bitching to Fox News that he doesn’t have anything to hide while he is suing to hide everything.
Naturally, Trump lashes out at Democrats as “vicious, violent, and Radical Left thugs,” because he doesn’t know how to react coherently to the well founded allegations against him. So instead, he rattles off a bunch of lies about Democrats “disgracing” the country or mismanaging the economy. In reality, America is in the midst of a “Biden Boom.”
Eventually Trump gets to what is really triggering his tirade. Which is his mortal fear of prosecution and prison. He calls out the “DA’s, AG’s, and Dem Law Enforcement” that he says are “out of control.” Of course, what irks him is that they are out of his control. Indeed, it has just been reported that some of his closest confederates, including Roger Stone and Steve Bannon, are being threatened with contempt of Congress charges for refusing to comply with subpoenas. Stone, and attorneys Jeffrey Clark and John Eastman, have already pleaded the Fifth Amendment to avoid incriminating themselves (and Trump). Which is ironic since Trump famously declared that “the mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”
Trump suspects that prosecutors are getting closer to indicting him. And he isn’t the only one. So he is engaging in a first strike strategy in a futile attempt to tarnish their reputations. And in his customary practice of “projection,” Trump absurdly accuses American district attorneys and attorneys general of being “communists,” a word whose meaning he couldn’t define if his life depended on it.
Finally, Trump reprises his favorite delusion, the alleged the “rigging the 2020 Presidential Election.” Never mind that after a year, and more than 60 court cases, he has failed to produce a shred of evidence. So he employs infantile insults such as calling the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection the “Unselect Committee.” And he continues to undermine American democracy by claiming that the November 3rd election was the “real” insurrection.
This is the whimpering of a frightened con man who feels the heat closing in on him. He couldn’t be more obvious. But he has a right a to be concerned. His crimes are well documented. And hopefully his worries will prove to have been warranted when he is frog-marched in to the police station to be booked.
UPDATE: As further evidence of Trump’s seething fear, he just announced that he has filed a preposterous lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James to try to stop his prosecution. Expect that to be dismissed shortly.
