Very short: I read  Dartagnan‘s diary about Trump being blackmailed. He is far from the only person who believes this. There’s been a lot of speculation about it.  I used to believe so too.

Not anymore.

Why? One very simple reason. What in the ever-loving mother F*CK can he be blackmailed with? 

Look at the record: During the election, there were tales of Trump being involved with the New York Mafia. Tales of him trying to do business with Cuba. With Iran. With Irish Terrorists. And the Soviets.  He’s been bankrupt multiple times. He kicked out homeless vets from in front of his building. The John McCain comment.  The “blood coming out of her whatever” comment. The “piece of ass” comment on Howard Stern. The Access Hollywood tape. The lawsuit because he wouldn’t rent to African Americans. Any ONE of these things should have been enough to cause him to come in at 6th place — at best — in the GOP primary.

But he F*cking Won. He. F*cking. Won. (A Year and a half later, I’m still somewhat stunned)

Since then we’ve learned more. Offenses against the law, against his marriage, and against America.

None of it matters. Nothing F*cking Matters.

Affair with a porn star? Doesn’t matter. 

Multiple instances of family members meeting with Russians? Doesn’t matter.

Calling Nazis “Very Fine People”? Doesn’t matter. 

Handing out favors to people who stay at his hotel? Doesn’t matter.

The multiple accusers who have come forth? Doesn’t matter. 

Admitted to that “Why yes, Mr. Holt, I did indeed fire Comey to halt the Russian investigation. Why do you ask?”: Doesn’t Matter. 

Wife-beaters in the administration? Doesn’t matter.

Has turned on his own base with vast cuts to the safety net and a tax cut that increases the deficit? Doesn’t matter. 

I’m not a religious person, but if one wanted to state that Trump was the Beast 666, they’d get a lot of back up from the Book of Revelation Chapter 13 Verse 3: One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

The Dragon is possibly the Evangelical Church, or maybe Putin. Who knows? The point is that Donald Trump is Teflon.

After a quick meeting with victims of the Parkland shooting, it was off to Mar-A-Lago for a Disco Party for the First Couple. (So convenient to have a school shooting near the Winter White House, no?)

Is he going to suffer any ill effects for this? Nope. He’s not. Not at all. Half the stuff he does to troll and irritate democrats, is for no other reason than to troll and irritate democrats. Because he knows he can get away with it every day and twice on Sunday.

How do you blackmail someone like Trump?

Answer: You don’t.

You can’t.

It’s impossible. 

He gets away with everything, suffering no ill effects and no penalties. Every Wound Heals.

I fully expect to see him barbecuing puppies on the front lawn of the WH come Memorial Day. What are you going to do? Complain about it in your blog? Sign a petition asking the GOP congress to investigate the puppy-eating president? Please.  

So in my estimation, he is simply smitten with dictatorships in general and Putin in specific. He admires Fascism and wants to be one himself. It’s simple as that. No rocket science needed.

Don’t get me wrong, he’s likely in bed with the Russian mafia and other unsavory types, sure. But again, So Fucking What? As long as he’s got that hardcore 33% of the population, and as long as a good chunk of those are in Ohio, Florida and Pennslyvania, he’s got fuck all to worry about.

Sorry if I’m bringing down the mood with this, but I’ve basically given up on Republicans (elected or just the voters) ever coming to their senses.

Nothing Matters.
