This outcome should not be a surprise to anyone. After all, Donald J. Trump, Pestquire has only been telegraphing it for all of his adult life. Trump has always been a small, petty, vindictive, little man with absolutely no social graces whatsoever. He even outlined it in his ghost written book The Art of the Deal, in which he told the guy who did all of the real writing, Tony Schwartz, I never give up, and I never forget. If somebody hits me, I don’t care if it takes years, I’ll hit them 10 times harder.
And where have we heard that before? How about Mr. The largest inauguration crowd ever!, Sean Spicer, who described Trump as the consummate counter puncher. And Sister Sarah Flackabee Slanders, who used to opine from the White House press room podium that, When somebody hits the President, he hits them back 10 times harder. And on to KellyAnne Conway, Kayleigh McAnanney, and all of the rest of the soulless Trump acolytes. When Trump is hit, he hits back 10 times harder.
And here we are. It’s Monday, the 23rd of November, and once and for all, Donald Trump is finally the world’s biggest loser! He has lost by the largest difference in history, in a record setting election, one in which his opponent garnered a record 80 million votes. And he isn’t taking it kindly. And the presidential transition is finally underway as we speak. It’s finally over.
What did Trump say to Tony Schwartz? He never forgives, and he never forgets. And he’ll wait as long as he has to in order to exact revenge. And since then, every single Trump acolyte who could get in front of a microphone has stepped forward to confirm his assertion. And guess what? Starting on November 3rd,all of us, the American people, became the enemy. We rose up as a nation to repudiate Trump, his philosophy, his governance, and his attitude. And he isn’t about to forget it.
In the weeks since it became apparent that Trump had lost the election, Trump has undertaken a purge of the intelligence agencies, supplanting them with sympathetic sycophants, most notable for being supremely unqualified for their positions. And he has also undertaken to place loyal acolytes into positions buried in federal government into positions that by law will make it difficult for a future Biden administration to dislodge them. Personally, I have no doubt that one of the reasons for Trump delaying the peaceful transfer of power to the Biden group was to allow time to shred documents of illegal or unethical activity on the part of the Trump cabal in charge of those departments.
And it only gets worse form there. As Rachel Maddow reported tonight, Today Trump pulled out of the 28 year old international open skies agreement, in which countries signed onto the treaty could conduct surveillance flyovers of any other country in the treaty. The obvious target of the agreement was Russia, making US flyovers a deterrent to their moving troops to a border of another country. But Trump decided to give Vlad the Imp one more Christmas present early by withdrawing from the treaty today.
And it gets even worse. Weeks ago, Trump ordered the demolition of the two highly sophisticated aircraft that had been flying the missions, and months ago then Defense Secretary Mark Esper canceled a contract to provide new, even higher tech aircraft to take over the duties. Trump not only pulled out of the agreement, he ordered the demolishment of the aircraft that flew the missions, and had Esper scuttle the order for newer aircraft. Basically, he made it impossible for Biden to rejoin the agreement since Trump had violated the rules in terminating it, he made it impossible for Biden to have the aircraft to participate in it.
Let’s just face simple facts, shall we? Donald John Trump is a traitor to the United States of America! He has lived his life by the ethos that if anybody screws with you, then you screw with them 10 times harder. On November 3rd, the voters of the United States overwhelmingly rejected the tutelage of Donald Trump. And per his ethos, that made us, all of us, the enemy. And when Trump is hit, he will hit back 10 times harder. As Rachel Maddow likes to say, Don’t pay attention to what they say, pay attention to what they do. Trump isn’t through fucking with us yet, and he’s the worlds sorest loser.
