Witness a Conrad Black, the author of A President Like No Other: Donald J. Trump and America’s Restoration. Black apparently thinks that there is still something to be salvaged in this human tire fire, and has decided to die in this. Closed.
Buckle up, folks. This will get weird, starting with the title. Unless you want to spray your drink halfway up Alpha Centauri, make sure you don’t drink anything when you read this. You have been warned.
“How Trump Can Win Again: Become the Quiet, Moderate Candidate, ”Postulates Black. It gets dumber from there.
First, the LED:
The political scene is evolving so rapidly that I presume to offer some advice to President Trump: Now you can win in 2024 by being the potential candidate for calm and restraint.
Sure, Trump can do that. Or he can Suggest nuclear hurricanes, try to reverse free and fair elections, incite a deadly riot, press for putting moats full of alligators on the southern border, promote unapproved drugs, acts like a newly neutered howler monkey when asked nondescript questions by the mediaand generally they behave like a marginally less entrenched Randy Quaid.
The Senate Minority Leader’s Unusually Reckless Comments Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) That, indeed, the gruesome specter of Trump had passed and that everyone could go back to being the good losers of the Bush-McCain-Romney eras was effectively retracted within a few days. Rep. Liz cheney (R-Wyo.) She has disgraced herself by joining the Trump hate operation of the President of the Chamber Nancy pelosi (D-Calif.) And, in Republican terms, it is sinking without a ripple as a consequence.
Hmm, the Bushes won three out of four of the elections they competed in after becoming their party’s nominees. John McCain and Mitt Romney lost as many elections as Trump. And George HW Bush and George W. Bush won the popular vote at least once, while Trump never did. What in Of Gaia green blood cell this idiot is talking about?
Black rambles for half a dozen undemocratic paragraphs before reaching the pimegivemesistance.
Now, as time passes, public irritation with Trump’s bombastic demeanor, of his presence on the face of the nation day and night for four years, will recede and be gradually replaced by the spectacle of a Biden administration in state. out of a coma, reeling and hiding, fighting irresponsibly with the various crises it has created. In his place, there will soon be nostalgia for Trump, and if he is wise, he can become a winning figure of comparative Olympic serenity.
Nostalgia for Trump? No, the guy is etched in our memories, I grant you. But “nostalgia” implies background regards. I’m nostalgic for eating Cracker Jack on a picnic bench in the summer of ’76. I’m not nostalgic for the rough pink belly I received from my reprobate brothers 10 minutes later.
But this. This! “… if you are wise, you can become a winning figure of comparative Olympic serenity.”
Trump is not wise and he never will be. (See also: almost all the news of the last half decade).
Trump is a loser. Final point.
A “figure of relative Olympic serenity?” Along with Trump, Crispin Glover around 1987 he was a figure of relative Olympian serenity. But Trump himself never will be.
It is normal for historians and especially supporters to want to rehabilitate the image and reputation of a former president, but Trump’s reputation is shattered. He himself could have stained those feces on the inner walls of the United States Capitol. You can’t forget January 6, or any of the other 1,460 days that he cosplayed as president.
And no amount of gaslighting after the fact can manufacture We forget it, no matter how hard devotees like Conrad Black try.
