I Think I’ve Got It

I’ve been trying to figure out what’s going on since the results of the 2016 election were announced. Ten days after Donald Trump occupies the White House and acts insane I think I have figured it out.

I haven’t heard anybody else come to this conclusion, but I don’t know how unique my prognostication will be. If I’m right I’ll be looked at as a political savant. If I’m wrong…ah, so what. I’ve been that many times before.

I think a deal has been struck between Trump and the Republican party to greatly benefit both of them. Fuck the country, of course, but as long as those two entities make out like bandits AGAIN, then who cares?

Here it is- Mike Pence was put on the Republican ticket for a specific reason. Trump was largely a fluke. A tragic fluke, but one none the less. His receiving millions, even billions, of dollars of free press by a beyond-corrupt mainstream press whoring for headlines guaranteed the outcome. That and 10 years of Fox News making Hillary Clinton the enemy of everyone.

So, Trump blundered into the White House and the Republicans are going to make the most of a tragic situation. I think they know Trump has absolutely NO intention of staying president and they offered him a deal he couldn’t turn down.

They said, “Do everything you can to act like a madman until there is such a public outcry that the we, the Republican leadership, step in and, in a very public way, demand you resign or be impeached and kicked out of office.”

Think about it. The Donald gets fantastically rich off of oil deals with the Russians and other backroom deals set in motion months ago AND the Republicans get to appear to “be reasonable” and “save the country” from this madman. And now…President Pence…which was the game plan all along.

It’s like the old joke about the husband who comes home and asks his wife how her day went. She replies that she hit a kid on a bike with her car and killed him. After the husband calms down she tells him that, no, she didn’t kill anybody but that she scraped the side of her car and it needs to be fixed. She adds, “Now the scrape doesn’t seem so bad by comparison, does it?”

Same misdirection going on here. Republicans get to seem sane compared to Trump and slip President Pence in under our noses and Americans are so relieved that we barely notice the Big Con they pulled on the world.

We’ll see.
