Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back In the Water…

I saw this disturbing headline in this morning’s newspaper. A now embolden Donald Trump, after his impeachment trial acquittal by the U.S. Senate, is ready to step out of his self-imposed hibernation and to step back into the spotlight. Oh joy.

He is apparently going to work with Republicans to help them regain control of the House of Representatives and the Senate in the 2022 midterm elections. He plans to throw his weight behind more extreme, far right candidates and to exact his revenge on Republicans who supported his impeachment and who resisted his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

Trump has assured his supporters that his post-presidency movement “has only just begun.”

Isn’t that special?

    This just means that Biden can’t afford to lose votes. But that was pretty much the case anyway.
    It probably means he;ll have to shy away from doing anything that might be unpopular like action of carbon. But I doubt the world was holding its breath, in any case.

        He could initiate registration programmes, I guess. There were stories here of Republicans taking steps to prevent people voting, so at least he could maybe tackle that.

          It’s really up to the 50 states to manage voter registration and access i. Their states, and more states are run by Republicans than Democrats. Republicans want to suppress the vote, not make it easier.

    I can’t hit “like” for this one. Jail would be the best option. Gitmo is still open. Isn’t it supposed to be for terrorists?

    I think his dementia will start to become more and more apparent now that he doesn’t have Air Force One to ride around in and people who are paid to lie for him. But we’ll see.

    In 2014 it was shut down and … fell into disrepair, prompting its demolition.

    Demolition crews had set up explosives along the building’ structures to knock its legs out from under, bringing the building down on itself [in less than twenty seconds].

    “It will crumble like a deck of cards,” Fire Chief Scott Evans said to The Associated Press.

    …………

    Separately, in Palm Beach, demolition crews at Mar-a-Lago removed a helipad on Tuesday that was constructed during Trump’s presidency in 2017.

    The 40-to-50-foot-wide helipad allowed Trump to take Marine One to and from Palm Beach International Airport to Mar-a-Lago, though it wasn’t used often.

    Due to his position as president, he received an exemption from Palm Beach’s helicopter-free zone rule, which was revoked following his exit from office, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

    Under that condition, he was allowed to have the helipad as long as it was used for presidential business and was removed when his term ended.

    It is sad, but after four years nothing surprises me anymore.
