One-Liner Wednesday — Under the Spotlight

“The president’s recent discussions with those around him reveal that he sees his White House comeback deliberations as a way to earn the commodity he needs most after leaving office: attention.”

Anita Kumar, Politico White House correspondent and associate editor

The good news is that, despite his need to stay in the limelight, Trump will ultimately wilt under the truth, scrutiny, and heat of the spotlight and will finally melt away.

    That’s an interesting one. Will they (GOP) want him? He always seemed to have plenty of enemies even in his own ranks.

      I think the GOP will drop him like a hot potato once he no longer has power over them. At least I hope so.

      True. Hopefully, once he’s out of office the media will lose interest in him.

        There is talk of him having a (competing) rally on Inauguration Day. I do hope media outlets have the self discipline to stick to what would be our tradition of focusing on the celebration (not getting distracted by some dangerous peanut gallery).

    There’s a lot of emphasis in the intro on Snyder’s more recent books. But I recommend, too, “BLOODLANDS — Europe Between Hitler and Stalin” (an earlier work). I find it valuable.
